Bringing Graham Harman's philosophy into direct confrontation with contemporary architectural theory in new and creative ways, Is There an Object-Oriented Architecture? provides a dialogue between Harman and six of the world's leading architectural thinkers, Adam Sharr, Lorens Holm, Jonathan Hale, Peg Rawes, Patrick Lynch and Peter Carl. Harman's object-oriented philosophy is one that sees the universe as a carnival of equal “objects” with no hierarchy between humans and nonhumans. In his model, unicorns, triangles, bicycles, neutrons, and humans are all things with enduring essences that outlast their partial transformations. It is a strikingly democratic vision of the universe that knocks humans off their ontological pedestal as arbiters of what is real. It also radically challenges the very precepts of architectural theory, the structure of which remains stubbornly human-centric as it seeks to give form to the human being's place at the centre of the cosmos. In this new book, each thinker develops the implications of Harman's philosophy for the future of architecture by entering into a direct exchange with the philosopher and his thinking, both questioning him and questioning with him.

In The Interface Envelope, James Ash develops a series of concepts to understand how digital interfaces work to shape the spatial and temporal perception of players. Drawing upon examples from videogame design and work from post-phenomenology, speculative realism, new materialism and media theory, Ash argues that interfaces create envelopes, or localised foldings of space time, around which bodily and perceptual capacities are organised for the explicit production of economic profit. Modifying and developing Bernard Stiegler's account of psychopower and Warren Neidich's account of neuropower, Ash argues the aim of interface designers and publishers is the production of envelope power. Envelope power refers to the ways that interfaces in games are designed to increase users perceptual and habitual capacities to sense difference. Examining a range of examples from specific videogames, Ash identities a series of logics that are key to producing envelope power and shows how these logics have intensified over the last thirty years. In turn, Ash suggests that the logics of interface envelopes in videogames are spreading to other types of interface. In doing so life becomes enveloped as the environments people inhabit becoming increasingly loaded with digital interfaces. Rather than simply negative, Ash develops a series of responses to the potential problematics of interface envelopes and envelope power and emphasizes their pharmacological nature.

Perhaps one of the clues to answering the question of why Kafka's writing continues to be so compelling to a worldwide readership and why it has drawn such an enormous international range and scope of responses is that, despite its surreal appearances, Kafka's fictional world is a familiar, universal one. He revolutionized prose writing in the sense that almost all narrative authors who came later recognized his significance and were influenced by him. This still remains true in the present. The essays here show how Franz Kafka has impressed his seal on the identity of a number of Austrian writers: especially Aichinger, Canetti, Handke, Jelinek and Turrini.

In 1985 the highly acclaimed "Ascendancy and tradition " posed the question: "Why did Ireland, a small country by any standard, contribute so prolifically to the modernist movement?" Extending this original theme to include additional authors, this book revises and elaborates on a number of crucial arguments which still arouse heated debate. Beginning with correspondence and pamphlets on the bourgeois origins of Protestant Ascendency, this book places its concerns in a broad European context, culminating in WWII. -- Publisher description.
