Sexy Dressing Etc. Essays on the Power and Politics of Cultural Identity, Duncan Kennedy
1 Duncan Kennedy Sexy Dressing Etc. Essays on the Power and Politics of Cultural Identity
Harvard University Press 227643 USA 1993 0674802977 / 9780674802971 Softcover Very Good Condition Duncan Kennedy argues that an American radicalism is both possible and desirable. One base for radical politics is the big institutional workplace; another is popular culture--whence his emphasis on phenomena like sexy dressing. Kennedy's aim is to wed the rebelliousness, irony, and irrationalism of cultural modernism and postmodernism to the earnestness of political correctness. 258 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Essays; Essays & Literary Criticism; Culture. ISBN: 0674802977. ISBN/EAN: 9780674802971. Inventory No: 227643. Paperback

50 Popular Beliefs That People Think Are True, Guy P. Harrison
2 Guy P. Harrison 50 Popular Beliefs That People Think Are True
Prometheus Books 234604 New York 2012 1616144955 / 9781616144951 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition Maybe you know someone who swears by the reliability of psychics or who is in regular contact with angels. Or perhaps you're trying to find a nice way of dissuading someone from wasting money on a homeopathy cure. Or you met someone at a party who insisted the Holocaust never happened or that no one ever walked on the moon. How do you find a gently persuasive way of steering people away from unfounded beliefs, bogus cures, conspiracy theories, and the like? This down-to-earth, entertaining exploration of commonly held extraordinary claims will help you set the record straight. The author, a veteran journalist, has not only surveyed a vast body of literature, but has also interviewed leading scientists, explored "the most haunted house in America," frolicked in the inviting waters of the Bermuda Triangle, and even talked to a "contrite Roswell alien." He is not out simply to debunk unfounded beliefs. Wherever possible, he presents alternative scientific explanations, which in most cases are even more fascinating than the wildest speculation. For example, stories about UFOs and alien abductions lack good evidence, but science gives us plenty of reasons to keep exploring outer space for evidence that life exists elsewhere in the vast universe. The proof for Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster may be nonexistent, but scientists are regularly discovering new species, some of which are truly stranger than fiction. Stressing the excitement of scientific discovery and the legitimate mysteries and wonder inherent in reality, this book invites readers to share the joys of rational thinking and the skeptical approach to evaluating our extraordinary world. 458 pages.

Postmodernism and Popular Culture: A Cultural History, John Docker
3 John Docker Postmodernism and Popular Culture: A Cultural History
Cambridge University Press 234395 Great Britain 1994 0521465982 / 9780521465984 Softcover Good Condition In this provocative and timely book, John Docker takes his readers on an intellectual adventure. It is a journey that includes an introductory guided tour of the history of modernism, consideration of the development of postmodernism, explanation of the difference between structuralism and poststructuralism and discussion of the debates and conflicts around each. The book engages, in a stimulating and illuminating way, with some of the most important academic debates of our time. It combines polemical force with intellectual rigour, reclaiming popular culture from the forces opposed to it. Postmodernism and Popular Culture examines the attitudes of advocates of modernism and postmodernism, and many allied with the left, to popular culture, and is a detailed and thoughtful analysis of the nature of popular culture itself. 313 pages.

Shame and Its Sisters: A Silvan Tomkins Reader, ve Kosofsky Sedgwick an Adam Frank [Editors]
6 ve Kosofsky Sedgwick an Adam Frank [Editors] Shame and Its Sisters: A Silvan Tomkins Reader
Duke University Press 234323 USA 1995 0822316943 / 9780822316947 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition With a biographical sketch by Irving E. Alexander. The question of affect is central to critical theory, psychology, politics, and the entire range of the humanities; but no discipline, including psychoanalysis, has offered a theory of affect that would be rich enough to account for the delicacy and power, the evanescence and durability, the bodily rootedness and the cultural variability of human emotion.Silvan Tomkins (1911-1991) was one of the most radical and imaginative psychologists of the twentieth century. In Affect, Imagery, Consciousness, a four-volume work published over the last thirty years of his life, Tomkins developed an ambitious theory of affect steeped in cybernetics and systems theory as well as in psychoanalysis, ethology, and neuroscience. The implications of his conceptually daring and phenomenologically suggestive theory are only now-in the context of postmodernism-beginning to be understood. With Shame and Its Sisters, editors Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick and Adam Frank make available for the first time an engaging and accessible selection of Tomkins's work. Featuring intensive examination of several key affects, particularly shame and anger, this volume contains many of Tomkins's most haunting, diagnostically incisive, and theoretically challenging discussions. An introductory essay by the editors places Tomkins's work in the context of postwar information technologies and will prompt a reexamination of some of the underlying assumptions of recent critical work in cultural studies and other areas of the humanities. The text is also accompanied by a biographical sketch of Tomkins by noted psychologist Irving E. Alexander, Tomkins's longtime friend and collaborator. 268 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
