Norris, Christopher
Previous owner's signature on ffep.On 29 March 1991, shortly after the cessation of hostilities in the Gulf War, Jean Baudrillard published an article entitled "The Gulf War has not taken place", in which he argued that "the true belligerents are those who thrive on the ideology of the truth of this war". It is in response to such excesses of post-modernism that Christopher Norris has written this extended polemical essay. He argues that the extreme cognitive scepticism and relativism of this school of thought is profoundly disabling for critical theory. Reviewing the writings of Derrida, Foucault, Lyotard and Baudrillard, as well as the American neo-pragmatist school as represented by Rorty and Fish, he meticulously examines the flaws in their arguments, and makes an impassioned plea for the continuance of the philosopher's role as intellectual critic of real world politics and governments.218pp.

Fuchs,Daniel and Geo
Text in English,French and German.Case is damaged,top rear slipcase dented,and slightly scuffed but otherwise very good.This book offers an unprecedented documentation of our era's most famous people, including artists, photographers, designers, creators of culture, musicians, actors and architects. Each of these people was present with his or her full energy and enthusiasm when Daniel and Geo Fuchs used a box-like Polaroid camera, which had originally been developed for eye doctors, to produce these creative highlights. The beginning of each session was devoted to the project of taking an extreme close-up of the celebrity's eye. The next step was to stage a second image, which usually integrated the first portrait of the person's eye. The resultant photographic artworks are every bit as diverse as are the personalities of the photographed individuals. These portraits accurately reflect the many facets of life: from gorgeous and aesthetic, through crazy and shrill, to desolate and thought-provoking. A representative collection of these fascinating photos is available now in this large-format photo book. Book and slipcase.Scuffed/dent in top of slipcase Text in English, German and French.
Edition Reuss, 2001, Cloth/Laminated Boards, Book Condition: Very Good, Jacket Condition: No d/j as Published. . Slipcase. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
