The thirst for annihilation : Georges Bataille and virulent nihilism : an essay in atheistic religion by Nick Land( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sociologist, philosopher, literary theorist and fiction writer, who referred to himself as "a saint, perhaps a madman," George Bataille made a habit of exploding the categories which we use to order our business of everyday life. This strange yet lucidly written book is not so much an interpretation of his style of thought and ideas, but rather, a no-holds barred attempt to pursue Bataille's ideas to their conclusion. The result is an analysis of Bataille through the application of his style of thought and ideas rather than through more conventional methods of academic argument. Addressing such deviance, political and legal theory, the history of religion or poetry, Land proves that to write discursively about Bataille it is sufficient to be a scholar, but to spread the virulent horror of his writings, it is necessary to be an uncompromising devotee of Bataille's thought. -- Publisher description
Fanged Noumena : collected writings 1987-2007 by Nick Land( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nick Land's unique work, variously described as 'rabid nihilism', 'mad black deleuzianism' and 'cybergothic', developed a rigorous and culturally-engaged escape route out of the malaise of 'continental philosophy'. Land's work has continued to exert an influence, both through the British 'speculative realist' philosophers who studied with him, and through the many cultural producers who have been invigorated by his uncompromising philosophical vision. Beginning with Land's radical rereadings of Heidegger, Nietzsche, Kant and Bataille, the volume collects together the papers, talks and articles of the mid-90s in which Land developed his futuristic theory-fiction of cybercapitalism gone amok; ending with his enigmatic later writings in which Ballardian fictions, poetics, cryptography, anthropology, and the occult are smeared into unrecognizable hybrids. 'Fanged Noumena' gives a dizzying perspective on the entire trajectory of this provocative and influential thinker's work
Gardar Eide Einarsson : [Versuchsstation des Weltuntergangs] by Gardar Eide Einarsson( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and Norwegian and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The artist's first comprehensive monograph, the book contains documentation of a large selection of works since the early 2000s. Three commissioned essays provide various approaches to the reading of Einarsson's oeuvre. Bob Nickas situates the reader in a science-fiction-inspired future scenario where a book that turns out to be an exhibition catalogue forms the basis for the attempts of the main characters to penetrate into the artist's universe of signs. The philosopher Nick Land outlines a complex interpretative horizon in the encounter with Einarsson's precise analyses of the language of power by exploiting and reactivating the vocabulary of "post-Minimalist" art. And Martin Herbert tackles Einarsson's output in the 2000s, and shows how he continually problematizes the residual potential of art as critique and political tool.--Supplied by publisher

Aceleracionismo : estrategias para una transición hacia el postcapitalismo( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El aceleracionismo es una herejía política: sostiene que hay deseos, tecnologías y procesos que el capitalismo hace surgir y de los que se alimenta, pero que no puede contener; y que es necesario acelerar estos procesos para empujar al sistema más allá de sus límites. Teniendo como antecedentes teóricos el “Fragmento sobre las máquinas” de Marx, los volúmenes sobre capitalismo y esquizofrenia de Deleuze y Guattari, y la ficción especulativa de autores como Samuel Buttler, William Gibson y J.G. Ballard (para quien “el futuro es una mejor guía para el presente que el pasado”), los aceleracionistas se preguntan cómo liberar las fuerzas productivas cautivas bajo la ideología neoliberal, para redirigirlas hacia objetivos comunes. En este proyecto, la actual base material no necesita ser destruida, sino que es reapropiada como plataforma de lanzamiento hacia un futuro postcapitalista. Pues, ciertamente, aún no sabemos lo que un cuerpo tecno-social moderno puede hacer. Desde la publicación en 2013 del “Manifiesto por una Política Aceleracionista” de Alex Williams y Nick Srnicek estas tesis han sido adoptadas por un grupo convergente de nuevas iniciativas progresistas, al mismo tiempo que vehementemente contestadas por sus críticos. Este rico intercambio, que intentamos reflejar en la presente antología, tuvo la virtud de reactivar y actualizar un campo histórico de tensiones cuyo eje es la relación entre los efectos alienantes de la tecnología y el sistema de valor capitalista. A la desesperanza dominante en la izquierda contemporánea, que se consuela con la estridente denuncia o con la creencia autocomplaciente de que mantener una adusta crítica desde el refugio de la teoría o la “indeterminación” del arte constituye resistencia, el aceleracionismo contrapone una imagen especulativa de otros futuros posibles y un mapa cognitivo para la identificación de aquellos elementos de este sistema que pueden ser eficaces en una transición a esa otra forma de vida. ¿Es posible concebir a la inteligencia artificial, la biotécnica y el dinero virtual como algo más que medios de producción optimizados para la obtención de rendimiento económico? ¿Y en qué podría convertirse el concepto mismo de lo “humano” si algunas de estas potencialidades latentes, tales como la abolición de la necesidad de trabajar o la crisis de las categorías esencialistas de identidad, fueran liberadas al interior de un nuevo socius postcapitalista? Se trata de un debate fundamental a la hora de abrir nuevas perspectivas para las aventuras sociales y políticas por venir."
