In this book, Catherine Wheatley draws upon Cavell's explicitly film-inspired works, key ... read more

Roland Barthes and Film: Myth, Eroticism and Poetics (Film Thinks)

Patrick ffrench

Suspicious of what he called the spectator's “sticky” adherence to the screen, Roland Barthes had a cautious attitude towards cinema. Falling into a hypnotic trance, the philosopher warned, an audience can become susceptible to ideology and “myth”. In this book, Patrick Ffrench explains that although Barthes was wary of film, he engaged deeply with it. Barthes' thought was, Ffrench argues, pun... read more

The Rebirth of Area Studies: Challenges for History, Politics and International Relations in the 21st Century

Area Studies became increasingly common after World War II as a means of responding to perceived 'external threats' from the Soviet Union and China. After the Cold War and in the face of increasingly rapid globalisation, it seemed inevitable that Area Studies – institutionally and intellectually – would slowly degenerate. But this has not been the case, and there has recently been a resurgence... read more

Auguste Blanqui and the Politics of Popular Empowerment

Philippe Le Goff

Few individuals made such an impact on nineteenth-century French politics as Louis-Auguste Blanqui (1805-1881).

Practical engagement in all the major uprisings that spanned the course of his life – 1830, 1848, 1870-71 – was accompanied by t... read more

Kierkegaard: Existence and Identity in a Post-Secular World

Alastair Hannay

In his perceptive and provocative new book, Alastair Hannay contests two prejudices that have dogged the appreciation of Soren Kierkegaard's writings. These are that to grasp their contemporary impact, the religious focus must be referred to his personal background, and that their varied voices mirror a fragmentation in his own relationship to self and society. It was for paying lip-service to... read more

Scandalous Times: Contemporary Creativity and the Rise of State-Sanctioned Controversy

Alex Ling

We live in scandalous times. Every day some new controversy demands our attention, our emotional investment, and ultimately our judgment. The transgressive nature of these scandals leads many to understand them in revelatory terms: as offering a tantalising glimpse of what really goes on, cutting through the multiple layers of artifice to reveal an underlying 'truth'.

Philosophy and theology have long harboured contradictory views on spiritual practice. While philosophy advocates the therapeutic benefits of daily meditation, the theology of grace promotes an ideal of happiness bestowed with little effort.
