Book releases related to critical theory and philosophy from July, 2014.
An excerpt from “Jeffrey Sachs: The Strange Case of Dr. Shock and Mr. Aid,” by Japhy Wilson.
New releases from Michel Foucault, Henri Lefebvre and more!
An excerpt from “Willing Slaves of Capital” by Frederic Lordon.
Published in March, 2014, “Zizek’s Jokes” is a small book that claims to have captured the entirety of Slavoj Zizek’s published jokes in English, variations and all. Some of the jokes provide hilarious insight into Hegelian dialectics, Lacanian psychoanalysis or ideology. Others are just funny.
“Death Drive,” “hauntology,” “in horror vacui,” and “uber-chutzpa” are just a few of the phrases that grace the pages of “Why are Animals Funny? Everday Analysis: Volume 1,” published in the UK by independent publisher, Zero Books. “Why are Animals Funny?” is written by a band of, well, what I call renegades. They, however, call themselves the Everyday Analysis Collective (EDA Collective), a group comprised mostly of journalists and academics out of England.
