    Reflecting Subjects: Passion, Sympathy, And Society In Hume's Philosophy
    Jacqueline Anne Taylor - Hardback - Oxford University Press
    Jacqueline Taylor presents an original reconstruction of Hume's social theory, which examines the passions and imagination in relation to institutions such as government and the economy.

    Iconoclastic Theology: Gilles Deleuze And The Secretion Of Atheism
    F. LeRon Shults - Paperback - Edinburgh University Press
    F. LeRon Shults explores Deleuze's fascination with theological themes and shows how his entire corpus can be understood as a creative atheist machine that liberates thinking, acting and feeling. Shults also demonstrates how the flow of a productive atheism can be increased by bringing Deleuzian concepts into dialogue with insights derived from the bio-cultural sciences of religion.

    Lacan, Deleuze, Badiou
    A. J. Bartlett - Paperback - Edinburgh University Press
    The writings of Lacan, Deleuze and Badiou stand at the heart of contemporary thought. While the collective corpus of these three figures contains a significant number of references to each other's work, these are often simple critical, obscure, or both. This book guides academics working in philosophy, psychoanalysis and critical theory through the sensitive moments in their respective work and identifies the passages, connections and disjunctions that underlie the often superficial statements of critique, indifference or accord.
