A Deleuzian Century?
Ian Buchanan, Jerry Aline Flieger, ...

Duke University Press Books, 1999

Michel Foucault’s suggestion that this century would become known as “Deleuzian” was considered by Gilles Deleuze himself to be a joke “meant to make people who like us laugh, and make everyone else livid.” Whether serious or not, Foucault’s prediction has had enough of an impact to raise concern about the potential “deification” of this enormously influential French philosopher. Seeking to counter such tendencies toward ...


The Hegel Variations: On the Phenomenology of Spirit

Verso, 2014

In this major new study, philosopher and cultural theorist Fredric Jameson offers an innovative reading of a book that forms part of the bedrock of modern Western thought: Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit. Whereas other writers have interpreted the Phenomenology as a rigidly closed system, Jameson discovers it to be a more fluid, open-ended work. Hegel’s mind is revealed to be a less systematic mechanism than normally thought, one ...

Theodor Adorno is widely recognized as one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century, as a foremost cultural critic and philosopher, and one of the most important figures in the Frankfurt School and Western Marxism more generally.

Doing What Comes Naturally: Change, Rhetoric, and the Practice of Theory in Literary and Legal Studies
Stanley Fish

Duke University Press Books, 1989

In literary theory, the philosophy of law, and the sociology of knowledge, no issue has been more central to current debate than the status of our interpretations. Do they rest on a ground of rationality or are they subjective impositions of a merely personal point of view? In Doing What Comes Naturally , Stanley Fish refuses the dilemma posed by this question and argues that while we can never separate our judgments from the contexts in which ...


The Postmodern Condition: A Report on Knowledge (Theory and History of Literature, Volume 10)
Jean-Francois Lyotard

This book extends that analysis to postmodernism by looking at the status of science, technology, and the arts, the significance of technocracy, and the way the flow of information is controlled in the Western world.
