The sociology of Marx by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

96 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic study by Henri Lefebvre raises the question whether today we must study Marx as we study Plato, or rather whether Marx's work retains a contemporary value and significance; in other words, whether his work contributes to an elucidation of the contemporary world. For Lefebvre, Marx's thought remains a key--perhaps even the key--to an understanding of modern societies and modern reality
The urban revolution by Henri Lefebvre( )

50 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1970, The Urban Revolution marked Henri Lefebvre's first sustained critique of urban society, a work in which he pioneered the use of semiotic, structuralist, and poststructuralist methodologies in analyzing the development of the urban environment. Although it is widely considered a foundational book in contemporary thinking about the city, The Urban Revolution has never been translated into English - until now. This first English edition, deftly translated by Robert Bononno, makes available to a broad audience Lefebvre's sophisticated insights into the urban dimensions of modern life. Lefebvre begins with the premise that the total urbanization of society is an inevitable process that demands of its critics new interpretive and perceptual approaches that recognize the urban as a complex field of inquiry. Dismissive of cold, modernist visions of the city, particularly those embodied by rationalist architects and urban planners like Le Corbusier, Lefebvre instead articulates the lived experiences of individual inhabitants of the city. In contrast to the ideology of urbanism and its reliance on commodification and bureaucratization - the capitalist logic of market and state - Lefebvre conceives of an urban utopia characterized by self-determination, individual creativity, and authentic social relationships
Henri Lefebvre : key writings by Henri Lefebvre( )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and held by 1,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri Lefebvre is now recognized as one of the most influential social theorists of the Twentieth Century. In English, his writings on cities, everyday life, and the production of space have become hugely influential across Cultural Studies, Sociology, Geography and Architecture. Henri Lefebve: Key Writings presents for the first time the full range of Lefebvre's thought. The selection reinforces the centrality of Lefebvre to current debates in social and spatial theory but also sets Lefebvre's work in the context of his broader philosophical and political concerns. The extracts are divided in

Dialectical materialism by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

111 editions published between 1939 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the aim of widening the scope of Marxist theory, Henri Lefebvre finished Dialectical Materialism just before the beginning of World War II and the Resistance movement against the Vichy regime. As the culmination of Lefebvre's interwar activities, the book highlights the tension-fraught relationship between Lefebvre and the French Communist Party (PCF). For Lefebvre, unlike for the PCF, Marxism was above all a dynamic movement of theory and practice. Dialectical Materialism is an implicit response to Joseph Stalin's Dialectical and Historical Materialism and an attempt to show that the Sta
The production of space by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

30 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and French and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is a search for a reconciliation between mental space (the space of the philosophers) and real space (the physical and social spheres in which we all live). In the course of his exploration, Henri Lefebvre moves from metaphysical and ideological considerations of the meaning of space to its experience in the everyday life of home and city. He seeks, in other words, to bridge the gap between the realms of theory and practice, between the mental and the social, and between philosophy and reality. In doing so, he ranges through art, literature, architecture and economics, and further provides a powerful antidote to the sterile and obfuscatory methods and theories characteristic of much recent continental philosophy
Rhythmanalysis : space, time, and everyday life by Henri Lefebvre( )

32 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rhythmanalysis displays all the characteristics which made Lefebvre one of the most important Marxist thinkers of the twentieth century. In the analysis of rhythms -- both biological and social -- Lefebvre shows the interrelation of space and time in the understanding of everyday life. With dazzling skills, Lefebvre moves between discussions of music, the commodity, measurement, the media and the city. In doing so he shows how a non-linear conception of time and history balanced his famous rethinking of the question of space. This volume also includes his earlier essays on ""The Rhythmanalysis
Critique of everyday life by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

72 editions published between 1947 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyday Life is perhaps the richest, most prescient work by one of the twentieth century's greatest philosophers. The first volume presented an introduction to the concept of everyday life. Written twenty years later, this second volume attempts to establish the necessary formal instruments for analysis, and outlines a series of theoretical categories within everyday life such as the theory of the semantic field and the theory of moments. In its impetuous, often undisciplined prose, the reader may catch a glimpse of how charismatic a lecturer Lefebvre must have been
The explosion; Marxism and the French Revolution by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

42 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette analyse sur la "révolution de mai", écrite par le sociologue marxiste Henri Lefèbvre, traite d'un aspect particulier mais peut-être essentiel. Le mouvement n'a pu qu'entamer la "base" de la société existante ; par contre il en a ébranlé les superstructures, et certaines d'entre elles se sont littéralement effondrées
State, space, world : selected essays by Henri Lefebvre( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making the political aspect of Lefebvre's work available in English for the first time, this book contains essays on philosophy, political theory, state formation, spatial planning, and globalization, as well as provocative reflections on the possibilities and limits of grassroots democracy under advanced capitalism
Le marxisme by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

158 editions published between 1948 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il y a un siècle et demi, Karl Marx, peu avant la révolution de 1848, et en rapport étroit avec la fermentation révolutionnaire de l'Europe - aperçut, au départ dans l'indifférence générale, les grandes lignes de ce vaste ensemble théorique qui devait porter le nom de marxisme. Dès que l'influence et le rayonnement du marxisme commencèrent t s'imposer, les interprétations plus ou moins erronées et autres exégèses de son oeuvre se multiplièrent. En partant de l'oeuvre de l'auteur du Capital, Henri I,efebvre, dans cette introduction lue par des générations d'étudiants, expose la " conception du monde développée par Marx, conception philosophique, morale, sociologique, historique, économique et politique qui a profondément marqué le monde contemporain.

Writings on cities by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

29 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The selection of writings is contextualized by an introduction - itself a significant contribution to the interpretation of Henri Lefebvre's work - which places the material within the context of Lefebvre's intellectual and political life and times and raises pertinent issues as to their relevance for contemporary debates over such questions as the nature of urban reality, the production of space and modernity."--Pub. desc
Toward an architecture of enjoyment by Henri Lefebvre( )

15 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toward an Architecture of Enjoyment is the first publication in any language of the only book devoted to architecture by Henri Lefebvre. Written in 1973 but only recently discovered in a private archive, this work extends Lefebvre's influential theory of urban space to the question of architecture. Taking the practices and perspective of habitation as his starting place, Lefebvre redefines architecture as a mode of imagination rather than a specialized process or a collection of monuments. He calls for an architecture of jouissance--of pleasure or enjoyment--centered on the body and its rhythms and based on the possibilities of the senses. Examining architectural examples from the Renaissance to the postwar period, Lefebvre investigates the bodily pleasures of moving in and around buildings and monuments, urban spaces, and gardens and landscapes. He argues that areas dedicated to enjoyment, sensuality, and desire are important sites for a society passing beyond industrial modernization. Lefebvre's theories on space and urbanization fundamentally reshaped the way we understand cities. Toward an Architecture of Enjoyment promises a similar impact on how we think about, and live within, architecture."--

Logique formelle, logique dialectique by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

89 editions published between 1947 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La lógica dialéctica (lógica de las diferencias y de las oposiciones) es una mediación entre la lógica formal “pura” y el análisis dialéctico de las contradicciones en el movimiento; este análisis dialéctico, mal situado, poco cultivado, se ha oscurecido y su campo desaparece –o más bien parece desaparecer– ante la lógica “pura” y ante la lógica de las oposiciones. Pero en la concepción más amplia que aquí se presenta, el pensamiento lógico se integra en el pensamiento dialéctico como un momento del mismo
