    Der Markt diktiert unsere Wirtschaft: Er zwingt Unternehmen zu Entlassungen, scheucht die Politik vor sich her oder reagiert nervos. Doch existiert dieser -Markt- uberhaupt? Und was verbirgt sich dahinter? Peter Seele und Lucas Zapf raumen auf mit dieser Vergotterung eines bewahrten Tauschmechanismus zwischen Individuen, Unternehmen und offentlichen Akteuren. In diesem Buch betrachten sie den Marktbegriff unter logischen Aspekten und untersuchen seine Bedeutung und Verwendung in der Sprache. Mit diesem logischen Blickwinkel fallen sie keine Aussage uber ein wahrhaftiges Dasein des Marktes - vielmehr weisen sie darauf hin, wie die Marktvergotterung genutzt wird, um beispielsweise unangenehme Entscheidungen zu legitimieren und die Verantwortung auf einen ominosen Markt abzuwalzen. Sie entwerfen einen freien und aufgeklarten Marktbegriff, der diese riskanten Verzerrungen verhindert. Die Autoren Peter Seele ist Professor fur Corporate Social Responsibility & Business Ethics, ausgebildet als Okonom, Philosoph und protestantischer Theologe. Lucas Zapf ist Postdoc, Religionsokonom und interdisziplinarer Geisteswissenschaftler. Beide arbeiten an der Universita della Svizzera italiana in Lugano.

  • 'Society Must Be Defended': Lectures at the Collège de France, 1975-1976

    By Michel Foucault

    • Published: December 2003
    From 1971 until 1984 at the College de France, Michel Foucault gave a series of lectures to the general public that ranged over the breadth of his research. In 'Society Must Be Defended,' he deals withthe emergence in the early 17th century of a new understanding of war as the permanent basis of all institutions of power, a hidden presence within society decipherable via an historical analysis. Based on this tracing, Foucault outlines a genealogy of power and knowledge that has become his dominant concern culminating in an extraordinary discussion of modern racism. Notes, index. 310p.
  • 'The 'Scandal' of Marxism' and Other Writings on Politics: Essays and Interviews, Volume 2 (The French List)

    By Roland Barthes

    Roland Barthes, whose centenary falls in 2015, was a restless, protean thinker. A constant innovator, often as a daring smuggler of ideas from one discipline to another, he first gained an audience with his pithy essays on mass culture and then went on to produce some of the most suggestive and stimulating cultural criticism of the late twentieth century, includingEmpire of Signs, The Pleasure of the Text, and Camera Lucida. In 1976, this one time structuralist outsider was elected to a chair at France’s preeminent Collège de France, where he chose to style himself as professor of literary semiology until his death in 1980.The greater part of Barthes’s published writings have been available to a French audience since 2002, but here, translator Chris Turner presents a collection of essays, interviews, prefaces, book reviews, and other journalistic material for the first time in English. Divided into five themed volumes, readers are presented in volume two, ‘The “Scandal” of Marxism’ and Other Writings on Politics, with a wide range of Barthes’s more overtly political writings, with an emphasis on his early work and the serious national turbulence in the French 1950s.

  • 100 Years of European Philosophy Since the Great War: Crisis and Reconfigurations

    By Matthew Sharpe

    Our Price: $99.99
    • ISBN-13: 9783319503608
    • Publisher: Springer
    This book is a collection of specifically commissioned articles on the key continental European philosophical movements since 1914. It shows how each of these bodies of thought has been shaped by their responses to the horrors set in train by World War I, and considers whether we are yet 'post-post-war'. The outbreak of World War I in August 1914, set in chain a series of crises and re-configurations, which have continued to shape the world for a century: industrialized slaughter, the end of colonialism and European empires, the rise of the USA, economic crises, fascism, Soviet Marxism, the gulags and the Shoah. Nearly all of the major movements in European thinking (phenomenology, psychoanalysis, Hegelianism, Marxism, political theology, critical theory and neoliberalism) were forged in, or shaped by, attempts to come to terms with the global trauma of the World Wars. This is the first book to describe the development of these movements after World War I, and as such promises to be of interest to philosophers and historians of philosophy around the world.
