More > fighting in Napoleon's army, Marchand depicted all of history as a single, monumental battle, but was displeased with his creation and cut it into small pieces, which he sold off one by one to buy wine.

By turns humorous and horrifying, realistic and fantastical, mundane and metaphysical, this novel echoes Pynchon, Borges, and Philip K. Dick in its themes of obsession, paranoia, fetishism, time, and death.< Less

A Rationalist Critique of Deconstruction: Demystifying Poststructuralism and Derrida's Science of the "Non" By Morgan Brown
Hardcover: List Price: $30.00 $24.00 | You Save: 20%
Prints in 3-5 business days
In A Rationalist Critique of Deconstruction: Demystifying Poststructuralism and Derrida's Science of the "Non," Morgan A. Brown engages in the most thorough criticism of Deconstruction and... More > Structuralism to date, working from the standpoint of rationalist philosophy. Not only does he outline exactly what Deconstruction is, but he also outlines the methodology at the root of Jacques Derrida's pet philosophy of language. Brown draws amply from the insights of Austrian Economics in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich A. Hayek, and he guides the reader through his critique with a self-consistent structure of methodical argumentation. Part epistemology, part linguistics, and part microeconomic theory, the book is a veritable textbook for the Humanities and a handy reference for the libertarian and conservative intellectual. Deconstruction is best examined through the lens of microeconomic rationalism, since Derrida's theory is at base a literary incarnation of Vilfredo Pareto's Indifference Theory.< Less
