Between Art and Philosophy: Theodor Adorno and Michel Foucault as heirs and critics of Enlightenment By Sebastian Gurciullo
eBook (PDF): $12.50
This book explores forms of philosophical thinking which have explicitly sought to harness aesthetics as a form of ethical comportment aimed at the critique and surmounting of narrow conceptions of... More > rational identity. Two extreme and highly influential practitioners of this line of investigation in the European tradition are taken as case studies: Theodor W. Adorno and Michel Foucault. Both philosophers gave aesthetics a central role in the ethical task of rescuing philosophy from narrow forms of rationality and the impoverished identities they tend to produce. The central point of difference between these two philosophers may be found in their divergent assessments of the aspirations of Enlightenment thought. Two final chapters examine the work of Charles Taylor and Gianni Vattimo as additional critical perspectives. These closing chapters also question the critical rationalism of Jürgen Habermas, Adorno’s chief successor in Frankfurt School critical theory and one of Foucault’s principal interlocutors.< Less

When The Storm Subsides: Hawthornesque Discipline and Resistance in The Scarlet Letter By Hirofumi Harada
Paperback: $9.93
Prints in 3-5 business days
Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Scarlet Letter presents a successful instance of the disciplinary normalization technique that Michel Foucault made problematic. Critics have assumed the repressive power... More > of the scarlet letter and its disciplines and have vilified it without investigating its centrality to Hester’s individual self. Hester herself, however, did not change the literary meaning of the letter; rather, but the crowd willfully changed its interpretation of it. Foucault focuses on the people who are disciplined rather than the disciplines themselves and argues that the disciplined people could institute a counter-discourse. On the other hand, The Scarlet Letter seemingly views disciplinary power, surveillance techniques, and discursive violence as problems. Those three things, however, helped the crowd readapt Hester to their society.< Less
