Hegel s Grammatical Ontology

Reading The Phenomenology of Spirit through a linguistic lens, Jeffrey Reid provides an original commentary on Hegel's most famous work. Beginning with a close analysis of the preface, where Hegel himself addresses the book's difficulty and explains his tortured language in terms of what he calls the “speculative proposition”, Reid demonstrates how every form of consciousness discussed in The Phenomenology involves and reveals itself as a form of language. Elucidating Hegel's speculative proposition, which consists of the reversal of the roles of the subject and predicate in such a way that the copula of the proposition becomes the lively arena of dialogical ambiguity and hermeneutical openness, this book offers new onto-grammatical readings of every chapter of The Phenomenology. Not only does this bring a new understanding to Hegel's foundational text, but the linguistic approach further allows Reid to unpack its complexity by relating it to contemporary contexts that share the same language structures that we discover in Hegel. Amongst many others, this includes Hegel's account of sense-certainty and the critique of the immediacy of consumer culture today.

Landscape and the Science Fiction Imaginary

Landscape and the Science Fiction Imaginary is an original and ambitious exploration of science fiction as a visual cultural discourse. This book argues that a serious account has yet to be given of the key role of the visual in a wider science fiction culture, both in its effects and its potentials. Taking influential historical works of visual art as starting points, along with illustration, movie matte painting, documentary, ‘artist’s impressions’ and digital environments, John Timberlake focuses on the notion of science fiction as an ‘imaginary topos’, which draws principally on the intersection between landscape and historical/prehistorical time. As a genre science fiction has a peculiar ocularity and envisioning that places it at odds with realist fiction, and this book posits the genre as a form of ‘alternate seeing’, a deeply visual and evocative method for understanding the connections between science, history, the pre-human and the non-anthropocentric. Indeed, as the author argues, to begin to account for the excess of science fiction landscape is to examine how we as humans might look afresh, without the comforts of familiarity or complacency. Richly illustrated, this book will appeal to scholars, students and fans of science fiction and the visual culture that surrounds it.

INDIAN MARRIED LIFE

This book was written by me some years ago, when a prominent publisher from New Delhi gave me this specific topic to write on. However, I did not complete the writing to my own satisfaction. Even today, a huge part of what I had planned to write still remains inside my head.When I recently went through this writing, I found that it is having a lot of readable points. So, I am publishing this book in an as-it-is form. Since it was written for another publisher, with a specific aim, the writing style is slightly different from my current writing style. Moreover, it has a tone of an instructor imparting learning. I must admit that I cannot don the mantle of an instructor or coach in the subject matter that I have dealt with. However a lot of points have been discussed, which the reader may find quite interesting to ponder on.

Stately Bodies

She is inflexible ; and having established her order with a typically tragic indifference to human pain , she draws even the innocent — and especially those who have called on her - into her logic of justice .

Stately Bodies

Stately Bodies explores the curious prevalence of bodily metaphors in conceptions of noncorporeal institutions: the state, the law, and politics itself. The book builds on work from Adriana Cavarero's well-received study, In Spite of Plato: A Feminist Rewriting of Ancient Philosophy. In that work Cavarero--as political theorist, philosopher, classicist, and close reader--examines literary and philosophical texts from Greek antiquity to modern to reveal the paradox that characterizes notions of the "body politic" in Western political philosophy. She examines bodily metaphor in political discourse and in fictional depictions of politics, including Sophocles' Antigone, Plato's Timaeus, Livy, John of Salisbury, Shakespeare's Hamlet, and Hobbes' Leviathan. An appendix explores two texts by women that disrupt these notions: Maria Zambrano's Tomb of Antigone and Ingeborg Bachmann's Undine Goes. Cavarero exposes the problematic nature of the mind/body dualism that has been essential in Western thought. Her insight that the expelled, depoliticized body is a female one becomes an instrument for decoding many paradoxical tropes of the political body. For instance, Cavarero revisits Antigone as the tragedy in which a body that is displaced, bleeding, and matrilinear allows the construction of a political order where misogynous rationality rules. Throughout the book, Cavarero argues that women have been cast by male thinkers into the realm of the corporeal as nonpolitical, and also suggests that this nonpolitical position is also a source of knowledge and power, that politics is a masculine pursuit that should not be admired or envied. Adriana Cavarero is Professor of Philosophy, University of Verona, and frequently is Visiting Professor. New York University. Her books Relating Narratives: Storytelling and Selfhood and In Spite of Plato: A Feminist Rewriting of Ancient Philosophy were published by Routledge.

Tragic Views of the Human Condition

Can tragic views of the human condition as known to Westerners through Greek and Shakespearean tragedy be identified outside European culture, in the Indian culture of Hindu epic drama? In what respects can the Mahabharata epic's and the Bhagavadgita's views of the human condition be called 'tragic' in the Greek and Shakespearean senses of the word? Tragic views of the human condition are primarily embedded in stories. Only afterwards are these views expounded in theories of tragedy and in philosophical anthropologies. Minnema identifies these embedded views of human nature by discussing the ways in which tragic stories raise a variety of anthropological issues-issues such as coping with evil, suffering, war, death, values, power, sacrifice, ritual, communication, gender, honour, injustice, knowledge, fate, freedom. Each chapter represents one cluster of tragic issues that are explored in terms of their particular (Greek, English, Indian) settings before being compared cross-culturally. In the end, the underlying question is: are Indian views of the human condition very different from Western views?

Adapting Translation for the Stage

Translating for performance is a difficult – and hotly contested – activity. Adapting Translation for the Stage presents a sustained dialogue between scholars, actors, directors, writers, and those working across these boundaries, exploring common themes and issues encountered when writing, staging, and researching translated works. It is organised into four parts, each reflecting on a theatrical genre where translation is regularly practised: The Role of Translation in Rewriting Naturalist Theatre Adapting Classical Drama at the Turn of the Twenty-First Century Translocating Political Activism in Contemporary Theatre Modernist Narratives of Translation in Performance A range of case studies from the National Theatre’s Medea to The Gate Theatre’s Dances of Death and Emily Mann’s The House of Bernarda Alba shed new light on the creative processes inherent in translating for the theatre, destabilising the literal/performable binary to suggest that adaptation and translation can – and do – coexist on stage. Chronicling the many possible intersections between translation theory and practice, Adapting Translation for the Stage offers a unique exploration of the processes of translating, adapting, and relocating work for the theatre.

Because Thomas Hardy’s poetry and fiction are so closely associated with Wessex, it is easy to forget that he was, in his own words, half a Londoner, moving between country and capital throughout his life. This self-division, Mark Ford says, can be traced not only in works explicitly set in London but in his most regionally circumscribed novels.

An incisive look into the problematic relationships among medicine, politics, and business in America and their effects on the nation’s health Meticulously tracing the dramatic conflicts both inside organized medicine and between the medical profession and the larger society over quality, equality, and economy in health care, Peter A. Swenson illuminates the history of American medical politics from the late nineteenth century to the present. This book chronicles the role of medical reformers in the progressive movement around the beginning of the twentieth century and the American Medical Association’s dramatic turn to conservatism later. Addressing topics such as public health, medical education, pharmaceutical regulation, and health-care access, Swenson paints a disturbing picture of the entanglements of medicine, politics, and profit seeking that explain why the United States remains the only economically advanced democracy without universal health care. Swenson does, however, see a potentially brighter future as a vanguard of physicians push once again for progressive reforms and the adoption of inclusive, effective, and affordable practices.

MEDICAL MADNESS

A PATIENT’S PERSPECTIVE: There have been an increasing number of articles and books by medical professionals warning us of the hospital dangers, but very few by patients based on their personal experience. This I will guarantee; your awareness of my experience will drastically change your perception of our medical service. You will be less certain, less trusting, more perceptively critical, but safer. Hospitals kill 100,000 patients per year mostly through unintended medical errors. Medical complications following my routine procedure were so severe it resulted in horrific corrective measures exposing me to months of accumulated hospital treatment. The book portrays vividly and honestly how one is more likely to be killed in the hospital than anywhere else on the planet. So read on! That makes the hospital, our haven of wellness, the most dangerous institution in the world. The life you save may be your own – or one even more precious to you. I was fortunate (lucky enough) to survive five major surgeries, with complications, in as many years. This book describes my experience in vivid detail—with essential recommendations regarding what you need to know and do for those you care for before you become a patient.
