Edited By Richardson, Diane
Previous owner's signature on ffep.Little attention has traditionally been given to theorising heterosexuality. Heterosexuality tends to be taken-for-granted, as something that is 'natural' and 'normal'. Theorising Heterosexuality questions this assumption and demonstrates how much of our understanding of ourselves and the social worlds we inhabit is based upon unquestioned assumptions about the nature of heterosexuality. * In what ways does heterosexuality encode and structure everyday life? * How does heterosexuality shape our sense of identity? * What is the nature of heterosexual desire? * What is the relationship between heterosexuality and feminism? In addition to addressing these questions, the contributors to Theorising Heterosexuality provide a critical examination of recent debates about heterosexuality, in particular within postmodern, feminist and Queer theory. Well written in a clear and lively style, this book brings together leading authors in the field, who represent a variety of differing approaches and viewpoints. Heterosexuality is theorised in terms of its institutionalisation within society and culture, as practice and as identity. The result is an impressive and exciting collection, whose insights invite a radical rethinking of many of the concepts we use to theorise social relations. Theorising Heterosexuality will be of interest to a wide range of students in the social sciences and humanities, especially in: sociology, cultural studies, lesbian and gay studies, social psychology and women's studies.204pp

Edited By Sheppard, Darren; Sparks, Simon and Thomas, Colin
This is the first book to consider the increasing importance of Jean-Luc Nancy's work, which has influenced key thinkers such as Jacques Derrida. All his major works have been translated into English, yet until now little has been made available on his place in contemporary philosophy. By showing how he situates his work in a contemporary context - the collapse of communism, the Gulf War, and the former Yugoslavia - this outstanding collection reveals how Nancy's engagement with Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Heidegger and Derrida makes him one of the key contemporary continental philosophers. Providing new perspectives on the issues of sense, art and community, these essays make it impossible to approach philosophy without reference to the work Jean-Luc Nancy. 219pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Edges slightly creased.

Arendt, Hannah
Previous owner's signature on ffep.Hannah Arendt became famous for her works "The Origins of Totalitarianism", "The Human Condition", and "Eichmann in Jerusalem". Yet her scholarly career began with an exploration of Saint Augustine's concept of caritas, or neighbourly love. Although she commissioned an English translation of her 1929 dissertation, written under the direction of Karl Jaspers and the influence of Martin Heidegger, and annotated and revised it extensively in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the English manuscript was never published. This study is a revised English translation of the work that incorporates Arendt's own substantial revisions of the original text and provides additional notes based on letters, contracts, and other documents as well as the recollections of Arendt's friends and colleagues during her later years. In an interpretive essay, the editors trace Arendt's characteristic mode of discourse to this dissertation, as she introduced concepts that came to resonate throughout her work: caritas, plurality, natality, memory, free will, and love of the world. They argue that the entire revised text is not only a study of neighbourly love and worldliness in relation to the possibility of free will, but also a phenomenological discussion of the social and moral origins of action in the public realm. Scott and Stark demonstrate how Arendt's early work on Augustine provides the key to her later critique of modernity. Her main works are filled with explicit and implicit Augustinian references: the question about the relevance of the neighbour; her conclusion that Augustinian philosophy is both out of, and engaged in, the world; and the path she followed to reach them, combining phenomenology with Christian existentialism, were essentially unchanged even in the context of New York in the early 1960s. 233pp.
