Counterpath: Traveling with Jacques Derrida

Counterpath: Traveling with Jacques Derrida by Catherine Malabou, Jacques Derrida
English | July 6, 2004 | ISBN: 0804740402 | PDF | 352 pages | 14 MB
Counterpath is a collaborative work by Catherine Malabou and Jacques Derrida that answers to the gamble inherent in the idea of "travelling with" the philosopher of deconstruction. Malabou's readerly text of quotations and commentary demonstrates how Derrida's work, while appearing to be anything but a travelogue, is nevertheless replete with references to geographical and topographical locations, and functions as a kind of counter-Odyssey through meaning, theorizing, and thematizing notions of arrival, drifting, derivation, and catastrophe.

Counterpath: Traveling with Jacques Derrida
In fact, by going straight to the heart of the Derridean idea of "spacing," she finally makes it seem as though Derrida has never written about anything but travel.

Malabou's text is punctuated by a series of postcards received by Derrida from destinations such as Istanbul and Porto, Laguna Beach and Athens, which are inspired by his reading of her evolving discussion. Writing in a familiar and unguarded manner, as if he were "on vacation" from his own writing, Derrida still remains totally faithful to that work and invites the reader to reflect on much of what haunts his texts as well as his daily life, questions of distance and death, the relation to the other, and exile..

A Perfect Moral Storm: The Ethical Tragedy of Climate Change

FREEDownload : A Perfect Moral Storm: The Ethical Tragedy of Climate Change

A Perfect Moral Storm: The Ethical Tragedy of Climate Change by Stephen M. Gardiner
English | 2011 | ISBN: 0195379446 | 512 pages | EPUB | 2,4 MB

A Perfect Moral Storm: The Ethical Tragedy of Climate Change
Climate change is arguably the great problem confronting humanity, but we have done little to head off this looming catastrophe. In The Perfect Moral Storm, philosopher Stephen Gardiner illuminates our dangerous inaction by placing the environmental crisis in an entirely new light, considering it as an ethical failure. Gardiner clarifies the moral situation, identifying the temptations (or "storms") that make us vulnerable to a certain kind of corruption. First, the world's most affluent nations are tempted to pass on the cost of climate change to the poorer and weaker citizens of the world. Second, the present generation is tempted to pass the problem on to future generations. Third, our poor grasp of science, international justice, and the human relationship to nature helps to facilitate inaction. As a result, we are engaging in willful self-deception when the lives of future generations, the world's poor, and even the basic fabric of life on the planet is at stake. We should wake up to this profound ethical failure, Gardiner concludes, and demand more of our institutions, our leaders and ourselves.

"This is a radical book, both in the sense that it faces extremes and in the sense that it goes to the roots." –Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"The book's strength lies in Gardiner's success at understanding and clarifying the types of moral issues that climate change raises, which is an important first step toward solutions." –Science Magazine

"Gardiner has expertly explored some very instinctual and vitally important considerations which cannot realistically be ignored. –Required reading." –Green Prophet

"Gardiner makes a strong case for highlighting and insisting on the ethical dimensions of the climate problem, and his warnings about buck-passing and the dangerous appeal of moral corruptions hit home." –Times Higher Education

Running With The Big Dogs: Sybil Norcroft Book Six by Carl Douglass
English | Jan 5, 2015 | ASIN: B00RWDLAK2 | 93 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW/PDF (Converted) | 3 MB
Sybil Norcroft has spent nearly a lifetime to establish herself as a person of significance in a patriarchal world. Her successes have come at great cost and are, in sum, a mixed blessing.

Running With The Big Dogs: Sybil Norcroft Book Six
The cost to her family is heightened when, as Surgeon General, she must help her government and her fellow citizens avoid a financial catastrophe owing, in part, to the expenses of health care. She must give her blessing to a hard-line requirement by the Chinese to increase their lending to the U.S. When the Russian mafia–in collusion with the kleptocratic Russian government–launches an attack on the U.S. stock markets in a bid to cripple America, Sybil must aid in a brutal behind-the-scenes cyber fight which she conducts from her position as a secret CIA agent. It comes as no surprise when the Russian government and criminal organizations retaliate. The personal threat to Sybil goes beyond herself and to her family, and she is required to take risks she would never have imagined. There is great danger and great reward in Sybil's latest endeavor. Is she woman enough to handle both?

Catastrophism: The Apocalyptic Politics of Collapse and Rebirth

FREEDownload : Catastrophism: The Apocalyptic Politics of Collapse and Rebirth

James Davis, Sasha Lilley, David McNally, Eddie Yuen, "Catastrophism: The Apocalyptic Politics of Collapse and Rebirth"
English | ISBN: 160486589X | 2012 | EPUB | 192 pages | 1,6 MB

Catastrophism: The Apocalyptic Politics of Collapse and Rebirth
Amid a global zeitgeist of impending catastrophe, this book explores the culture of fear so prevalent in today's politics, economic climate, and religious extremism. The authors of this collection argue that the lens of catastrophe through which so many of today's issues are examined distorts understanding of the dynamics at the heart of numerous problems, such as global warming, ultimately halting progress and transformation. Arguing that catastrophic thinking results in paralysis or reactionary politics, the authors posit that the myths of 2012 have negative affects across the political spectrum and urge activists not to give up their beliefs and instead focus on working on issues now instead of waiting until society has ended and needs to be rebuilt.

The Phantom Holocaust: Soviet Cinema and Jewish Catastrophe

FREEDownload : The Phantom Holocaust: Soviet Cinema and Jewish Catastrophe

The Phantom Holocaust: Soviet Cinema and Jewish Catastrophe (Jewish Cultures of the World) by Olga Gershenson
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0813561817, 0813561809 | 290 pages | PDF | 3 MB

The Phantom Holocaust: Soviet Cinema and Jewish Catastrophe
Even people familiar with cinema believe there is no such thing as a Soviet Holocaust film. The Phantom Holocaust tells a different story. The Soviets were actually among the first to portray these events on screens. In 1938, several films exposed Nazi anti-Semitism, and a 1945 movie depicted the mass execution of Jews in Babi Yar. Other significant pictures followed in the 1960s. But the more directly filmmakers engaged with the Holocaust, the more likely their work was to be banned by state censors. Some films were never made while others came out in such limited release that the Holocaust remained a phantom on Soviet screens.

Focusing on work by both celebrated and unknown Soviet directors and screenwriters, Olga Gershenson has written the first book about all Soviet narrative films dealing with the Holocaust from 1938 to 1991. In addition to studying the completed films, Gershenson analyzes the projects that were banned at various stages of production.

The book draws on archival research and in-depth interviews to tell the sometimes tragic and sometimes triumphant stories of filmmakers who found authentic ways to represent the Holocaust in the face of official silencing. By uncovering little known works, Gershenson makes a significant contribution to the international Holocaust filmography.
