"Black coffee but one without milk" is a collection of idiotic human behaviour scenes observed by modern humans. Parental advisory! Explicit lyrics! It's crazy, written in the form of a joke, a story about things that really shouldn't happen, and certainly annoy anyone. Roast on human thoughtlessness. But how do you explain to the main character that he shouldn't care about all this? He walks, observes, can and would like to socialize, but for simple reasons he quickly doesn't feel like. And he does not know what to do, because it hurts a lot, a pisses off a lot. At least in the beginning. "Black coffee but one without milk" is short because it is the first of three parts that tell the story of different aspects of modern human life. The second part, "View from the window in the snail's house" is practically ready and full of surprises.

Slavoj Žižek’s masterwork on the Hegelian legacy. For the last two centuries, Western philosophy has developed in the shadow of Hegel, whose influence each new thinker tries in vain to escape: whether in the name of the pre-rational Will, the social process of production, or the contingency of individual existence. Hegel’s absolute idealism has become the bogeyman of philosophy, obscuring the fact that he is the dominant philosopher of the epochal historical transition to modernity; a period with which our own time shares startling similarities. Today, as global capitalism comes apart at the seams, we are entering a new transition. In Less Than Nothing, the pinnacle publication of a distinguished career, Slavoj Žižek argues that it is imperative that we not simply return to Hegel but that we repeat and exceed his triumphs,overcoming his limitations by being even more Hegelian than the master himself. Such an approach not only enables Žižek to diagnose our present condition, but also to engage in a critical dialogue with the key strands of contemporary thought—Heidegger, Badiou, speculative realism, quantum physics and cognitive sciences. Modernity will begin and end with Hegel.

He, was the number one corporation in the country, the head of the Luo Family. She was someone who had grown up in a well-off family, someone who had grown up in the love of her parents. Meeting someone from another country, he was no longer that cold and aloof young master from a thousand miles away. He protected, doted upon, and loved her. She had thought that her life would be given to her in such a sweet manner. Unexpectedly, that blank memory had been filled up. That shameful and desperate life had been left bloody in front of her. She could no longer face his tenderness. Five years later, when she returned to her old home, the figure under the Tower of London overlapped with the man she had dreamed of in her dreams. She stretched out her hand, but she dared not touch it. The little boy's soft little hands pulled at the corner of his clothes. He shifted his gaze from the Tower of London down, and those familiar eyes made his heart tremble. The word 'father' made his heart even more confused. He turned around and saw a woman whose clothes fluttered in the wind not too far away, who else could it be but the person he was desperately searching for. She hesitated, then lifted her foot and walked toward him, though this time she didn't know if he was her salvation or her doom. Five years, was he still her good man?

This study is an attempt to semantically decompose the most popular metaphorical expressions associated with two particular Web 2.0 practices: social networks and folksonomies. What is a friend on a social networking Web site like MySpace and StudiVZ? Is it polite to poke strangers on Facebook and give them fives on hi5? How can we subscribe to RSS feeds, if we don't pay subscription fees? Do we really broadcast ourselves on our YouTube channels? These and other similar questions are dealt with from the perspective of the referential and the conceptual approaches to meaning, i.e., what these words stand for (referential/extensional approach) and which concepts they signify (conceptual/intensional approach). Thus, from the referential point of view, a friend on MySpace is only a hyperlink directing to a profile page of another MySpace user. But from the intensional point of view, a friend is a subscriber to the content generated by the profile owner.

The Tyranny of Relativism is an impassioned attempt by one of England's most distinguished critics to capture the feel of British culture at the end of the twentieth century: its moods, attitudes, and institutions. Richard Hoggart presents a double argument, suggesting first that cultural dilemmas stem from a long slide towards moral relativism, as consumerism rather than authority increasingly determines the texture of life; and secondly, that despite its claims to the contrary, British Conservative governments have exploited these changes to their own ends.

In the fields of literature and the visual arts, 'zero degree' represents a neutral aesthetic situated in response to, and outside of, the dominant cultural order. Taking Roland Barthes' 1953 book Writing Degree Zero as just one starting point, this volume examines the historical, theoretical and visual impact of the term and draws directly upon the editors' ongoing collaboration with artist and writer Victor Burgin. The book is composed of key chapters by the editors and Burgin, a series of collaborative texts with Burgin and four commissioned essays concerned with the relationship between Barthes and Burgin in the context of the spectatorship of art. It includes an in-depth dialogue regarding Burgin's long-term reading of Barthes and a lengthy image-text, offering critical exploration of the Image (in echo of earlier theories of the Text). Also included are translations of two projections works by Burgin, 'Belledonne' and 'Prairie', which work alongside and inform the collected essays. Overall, the book provides a combined reading of both Barthes and Burgin, which in turn leads to new considerations of visual culture, the spectatorship of art and the political aesthetic.

What leads a young lawyer to change his successful career in Madrid for a life dedicated to others in Ethiopia? For Paco Moreno, author of these moving pages, his future was well established: a graduate in law, he set up his own office and from a very young age enjoyed a privileged economic situation. However, by chance, or perhaps motivated by a need to give something back in exchange for his good fortune, he travelled as a volunteer to Ethiopia and was never the same person again. He observed there that the nomadic tribes of the region do not have enough water and that the girls can not go to school because every day they have to travel a long way along the scorching desert sand to fill their containers. And he saw how those people, babies, children, pregnant mothers and the elderly, died from malnutrition or from diseases that he believed had been totally eradicated. Paco Moreno then insisted on returning more and more frequently, and finally founded an NGO, Amigos de Silva, in Afar, the hottest region in the world. In return, he has found his place in this world. This book, winner of the first edition of the Feel Good Award, is a testimony of what it means to give something back, and it details the reasons why doing so can make us happy.

“Richard Wiley is one of our best writers. These stories satisfy in the way that brilliant short fiction always satisfies; one feels as if one has absorbed the expansive vision and drama of a novel. Read slowly, and I bet you’ll want to read again.” —Richard Bausch, author of Peace and Living in the Weather of the World “It’s a strange and winsome feeling I have, reading Tacoma Stories, the blue sensation that Richard Wiley has made me homesick for a place I’ve never been, mourning the loss of friends I never had, in a life where each and every one of us is loved, however imperfectly. Think Sherwood Anderson inhabiting Raymond Carver’s Northwest and you’ll have a clear picture of Wiley’s accomplishment.” —Bob Shacochis, author of Easy in the Islands and The Woman Who Lost Her Soul On St. Patrick’s Day in 1968, sixteen people sit in Pat’s Tavern, drink green beer, flirt, rib each other, and eventually go home in (mostly) different directions. In the stories that follow, which span 1958 to the present, Richard Wiley pops back into the lives of this colorful cast of characters—sometimes into their pasts, sometimes into their futures—and explores the ways in which their individual narratives indelibly weave together. At the heart of it all lies Tacoma, Washington, a town full of eccentricities and citizens as unique as they are universal. The Tacoma of Tacoma Stories might be harboring paranoid former CIA operatives and wax replicas of dead husbands, but it is also a place with all the joys and pains one could find in any town, anytime and anywhere. Richard Wiley is the author of eight novels including Bob Stevenson; Soldiers in Hiding, winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and the Washington State Book Award; and Ahmed’s Revenge, winner of the Maria Thomas Fiction Award. Professor emeritus at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, he divides his time between Los Angeles, California, and Tacoma, Washington.

APPEARANCES is a collection of twelve short stories revealing how fragile and elusive reality is. It is full of playful and powerful images that exist all around us. Funhouse mirrors of life. Or maybe the other way round. Raw images of a reality normally photoshopped and made to look gorgeous in the beauty parlors of everyday society, now shown for what they are, revealing their true nature. The mirror theme helps reflect on this reality. Stories are mirrors of life, of people and circumstances. Images in those mirrors range from the exact to the distorted. They can be revealing, misleading, or indicative of something. They can be full of promises and lies, changing the world according to their whims, or brutally honest, revealing the world as it was never meant to be seen. Whatever the case, the images are real, and so are the mirrors, phenomena of the everyday world, reflecting back to us who we are, what we do and how we have set up the world around us. They indicate to us the various aspects of humanity and the human psyche, exposing our longings and fears. Victor and Xavier share these stories with us, offering their perspective on life through the prism of mirrors that are playful, powerful and present wherever one looks. Nothing can be taken for granted. Only one thing’s for certain. Appearances are not what they seem.
