Edited By Kaplan, E. Ann and Sprinker, Michael
On his death in October 1990, Louis Althusser remained one of the most controversial of the "master thinkers" to emerge from the Parisian intellectual scene of the 1960s. "The Althusserian Legacy" is a collective attempt to draw up a balance sheet, not on Althusser alone but on the questions that his work pushed to the forefront of Marxist theory. It brings together writing in history, philosophy, economics, sociology, and literary criticism, all of it deriving from or significantly inflected by Althusser. The volume contains an interview with Jacques Derrida, long-time friend and colleague of Althusser at the Ecole Normale in Paris, and concludes with two obituaries by Derrida and Gregory Elliott. The contributors include - Etienne Balibar, Alex Callinicos, Michele Barrett, Alain Lipietz and Gregory Elliott. 245pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Reading crease to spine.

Dole, George F.
Is there really a hell? Should we be good simply to avoid punishment in the life hereafter? Just asking these questions theoretically doesn't get us far, George F Dole suggests, but examining the works of someone who has been there may help. Dole refers to Emanuel Swedenborg, the eighteenth-century Swedish scientist and statesman who over the last twenty-seven years of his life had the privileged status of an observer of non-physical worlds, including hell. Swedenborg wrote that we are unconscious residents of the spiritual world as well as the material world, and the hells he encountered have mirrors in our everyday lives.Within this framework, Dole examines questions about evil and hell that have plagued thinkers for centuries: Do we have freedom of choice? Do our spirits exist after death? Does an all-loving God condemn us to hell? If not, can we ourselves become irredeemably evil? What distinguishes Dole's approach to these questions is his open-mindedness and his hopefulness. "Freedom and Evil" brings us face to face with a God of mercy, and it is easy to believe, with Dole, that the gates of hell are not to keep people in but to keep people out. 190pp.
