A detailed account of this decade (1967-1977) is accompanied by an extensive set of previously unpublished data that charts the exhibitions and sales of Conceptual works to galleries, public institutions and private collections.

In these lectures, delivered in 1933-1934 while he was Rector of the University of Freiburg and an active supporter of the National Socialist regime, Martin Heidegger addresses the history of metaphysics and the notion of truth from Heraclitus to Hegel. First published in German in 2001, these two lecture courses offer a sustained encounter with Heidegger's thinking during a period when he attempted to give expression to his highest ambitions for a philosophy engaged with politics and the world. While the lectures are strongly nationalistic and celebrate the revolutionary spirit of the time, they also attack theories of racial supremacy in an attempt to stake out a distinctively Heideggerian understanding of what it means to be a people. This careful translation offers valuable insight into Heidegger's views on language, truth, animality, and life, as well as his political thought and activity.

I'm going to show you exactly how today's unprecedented politics is about to destroy your dreams, and give you some ways to fight back to try to save your future before it's ruined forever. Until the last election, I, like many millennials, believed that American politics is broken, that it's just about parties fighting for power, that there's nothing in it for the average citizen, and that it really didn't make a difference in my life. But after Trump got elected, I started hearing things that changed all that thinking. Some people that I really trusted began to tell me things are going to happen once Trump becomes president that will affect millennials--even ruin their lives. So I started investigating. I started talking to people. The more I discovered, the more shocking it became that so few people seemed to understand what was coming, and just how devastating it will be, especially for millennials. That's when I decided to distil it all down to a few items for fast reading, so that the most distressing information can get to people in a short read. This little book is a digest of my conversations about, and research on, the nightmare that is coming for millennials. Trump and his Republican cronies are going to unleash vast destructive forces that will make old age devastating for your parents, turn your life into a struggle for mere survival, and blight your children's futures forever. Once you've read through this little book--which you can do on a short lunch break or even a coffee break, if you're a fast reader--you will* know what's coming and be braced for it* understand why Trump and the Republicans are Millennials' worst nightmare* see how "conservatism" is a scam and a front for anti-social selfishness* penetrate the curtain of the media fascination with shiny objects* comprehend why Trump will fail as president, and ruin us all in the process* learn why modern politics affects everything you hold decent, and why you must exert control over it* know the real dangers that are happening while so many of your contemporaries blithely assume their lives are continuing as before* have a checklist of predictions to tick off as the horrors unfold* be able to alert your family and friends to specifics about the disasters that are heading their way* learn some strategies for fighting back to save your dreamsRead this book and in less than half an hour you will be fully informed about the imminent disasters that Trump and the Republicans will try to inflict on millennials during the next four years!

Parmenides, a lecture course delivered by Martin Heidegger at the University of Freiburg in 1942-1943, presents a highly original interpretation of ancient Greek philosophy. A major contribution to Heidegger's provocative dialogue with the pre-Socratics, the book attacks some of the most firmly established conceptions of Greek thinking and of the Greek world. The central theme is the question of truth and the primordial understanding of truth to be found in Parmenides' "didactic poem." Heidegger highlights the contrast between Greek and Roman thought and the reflection of that contrast in language. He analyzes the decline in the primordial understanding of truth—and, just as importantly, of untruth—that began in later Greek philosophy and that continues, by virtue of the Latinization of the West, down to the present day. Beyond an interpretation of Greek philosophy, Parmenides (volume 54 of Heidegger's Collected Works) offers a strident critique of the contemporary world, delivered during a time that Heidegger described as "out of joint."

Strange Wonder confronts Western philosophy's ambivalent relationship to the Platonic "wonder" that reveals the strangeness of the everyday. On the one hand, this wonder is said to be the origin of all philosophy. On the other hand, it is associated with a kind of ignorance that ought to be extinguished as swiftly as possible. By endeavoring to resolve wonder's indeterminacy into certainty and calculability, philosophy paradoxically secures itself at the expense of its own condition of possibility. Strange Wonder locates a reopening of wonder's primordial uncertainty in the work of Martin Heidegger, for whom wonder is first experienced as the shock at the groundlessness of things and then as an astonishment that things nevertheless are. Mary-Jane Rubenstein traces this double movement through the thought of Emmanuel Levinas, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Jacques Derrida, ultimately thematizing wonder as the awesome, awful opening that exposes thinking to devastation as well as transformation. Rubenstein's study shows that wonder reveals the extraordinary in and through the ordinary, and is therefore crucial to the task of reimagining political, religious, and ethical terrain.

This book won the Ohio Professional Writer’s, Inc. 2014 Communication Competition Award Now in its second edition, The Televiewing Audience is a user’s guide for the only household appliance that doesn’t come with one. Watching television seems relatively effortless – it is, after all, a major form of entertainment in the U.S. and overseas – yet this book argues that there is nothing simple about watching television; it is a learned activity which is in a constant state of revision and upgrading. Now more than ever, televiewing requires the generation and application of critical thinking to guide program selection, inform appreciation, generate greater pleasure, and inspire dialogue after consumption. This book is about becoming a more thoughtful and informed consumer, designed to shatter the anonymity of the televiewer, and to create a sense of community, for we rarely think of ourselves as instrumental in the televiewing experience or think of the experience as a shared event. Designed for courses related to broadcasting, media effects, media literacy, and audience studies, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the ways in which television influences the way we think about ourselves and our culture. It places us center-stage in the extremely complicated, competitive, creative, and costly endeavor that is television.

Here, for the first time, Christopher Kul-Want brings together twenty-five texts on art written by twenty philosophers. Covering the Enlightenment to postmodernism, these essays draw on Continental philosophy and aesthetics, the Marxist intellectual tradition, and psychoanalytic theory, and each is accompanied by an overview and interpretation. The volume features Martin Heidegger on Van Gogh's shoes and the meaning of the Greek temple; Georges Bataille on Salvador Dalí's The Lugubrious Game; Theodor W. Adorno on capitalism and collage; Walter Benjamin and Roland Barthes on the uncanny nature of photography; Sigmund Freud on Leonardo Da Vinci and his interpreters; Jacques Lacan and Julia Kristeva on the paintings of Holbein; Freud's postmodern critic, Gilles Deleuze on the visceral paintings of Francis Bacon; and Giorgio Agamben on the twin traditions of the Duchampian ready-made and Pop Art. Kul-Want elucidates these texts with essays on aesthetics, from Hegel and Nietzsche to Badiou and Rancière, demonstrating how philosophy adopted a new orientation toward aesthetic experience and subjectivity in the wake of Kant's powerful legacy.
