Product picture for Rights as Relational Properties: In Defense of the Classical Beneficiary Theory of Rights (Ideen & Argumente) by Markus Stepanians
Book › Kindle ebook


This book is a defense of the classical beneficiary theory of rights. Its heart forms the idea that rights assure goods to their bearers by implying duties for others. This theory has come under attack from two sides. Firstly, its traditional rival, the “will” theory of rights conceives of the exercise of a right as a manifestation of the right-holders autonomy. However, recently a new challenge arose through the “new” beneficiary theory of rights developed by Neil MacCormick and Joseph Raz. This book is an attempt to show that, correctly understood, the classical...

Ebook cover from Philosophies of Defeat: The Jargon of Finitude by Bruno Bosteels
Book › Kindle ebook
How radical thought has internalized the experience of defeat

A rising star of contemporary critical theory offers an expansive critique on a prominent tradition of thought, 'the jargon of finitude.' Associated with Martin Heidegger and Jacques Derrida, over the past few decades this tradition has been able to bolster its credentials as an indispensable contribution in the rethinking of the Left. However, rather than constituting a radical leftist opening in contemporary political thought, these are in many ways philosophies of defeat. Bosteels exmines the paradoxes inherent in...

Ebook cover from Disgust by Chris Turner
Book › Kindle ebook
A historical, philosophical detective story into what makes us human

What does our reaction to the "unmentionable," the "indescribable," and the "repellant" tell us about ourselves? Disgust was once considered our primary emotion, and as a result has fascinated philosophers, scientists, anthropologists and psychologists for centuries.

In a series of colorful scenarios Christopher Turner explores our obsession with repulsion through some of the greatest figures of the modern age. From a dinner party with Immanuel Kant and Charles Darwin's stomach complaints, to how...

Ebook cover from Philosophy and Revolution: From Hegel to Sartre, and from Marx to Mao by Raya Dunayevskaya
Book › Kindle ebook
Marx worked out as a totally new relationship of philosophy to revolution. Today's revolutionaries turn their backs on this at their peril.

Few thought systems have been as distorted and sometimes misconstrued as those of Marx and Hegel. Philosophy and Revolution, presented here in a new edition, attempts to save Marx from interpretations which restrict the revolutionary significance of the philosophy behind his theory. Developing her breakthrough on Hegel's Absolute Idea, Raya Dunayevskaya, who died in the June of 1987, aims at a total liberation of the human person-not only from...

Ebook cover from Transitional Subjects: Critical Theory and Object Relations Psychoanalysis (New Directions in Critical Theory) by Raya Dunayevskaya
Book › Kindle ebook
Critical social theory has long been marked by a deep, creative, and complex engagement with psychoanalysis. Freud, Lacan, and Fromm were important cornerstones for Adorno and Horkheimer, providing insight into the nature of the subject and its symbiotic relationship with capitalism. In the 21st century this engagement has focused on the object-relations school of psychoanalytic psychology. Frankfurt School and feminist critical theorists have drawn on it to enrich and augment their understanding of the self as intersubjectively and socially constituted and to support their diagnoses of...

Ebook cover from Reasons for Optimism by Lily Cole
Book › Kindle ebook
A Radical Guide to Thinking Differently About the World and Initiating Change

In 2013, Lily Cole was aware that change was needed in the world - big change. Global warming had reached terrifying heights of severity, human expansion and development had seen the extinction of countless species, and Neoliberalism and led to a destructive divide in wealth and to a polarisation of mainstream politics. And she believed that, in the face of such a gloomy predicament, the answer lay in optimism.

Taking inspiration from altruism-based communities, she launched Impossible, a platform...

Ebook cover from Assemblage Theory and Method: An Introduction and Guide by Ian Buchanan
Book › Paperback
What do we mean when we talk of an 'assemblage' in contemporary theory? Any and every thing, or more precisely, any and every kind of collection of things, could now be called an assemblage. The constant and seemingly limitless expansion of the term's range of applications begs the question, if any and every kind of collection of things is an assemblage, then what advantage is there is in using this term and not some other term, or indeed no term at all? What makes an assemblage an assemblage, and not some other kind of collection of things? This book advances beyond this impasse and offers...
