    Self And Determination: An Inward Look At Collective Liberation
    Joshua Stephens - Paperback - AK Press
    'Self and Determination' examines the way selves are constructed through physical experiences, social forces and cultural meanings. This process determines the conditions and limitations of social transformation. Utilising cognitive science, political philosophy, Buddhism and practices of existing social movements, Stephens tackles 'the self' as a site of intervention and decolonisation, in the service of building stronger social movements.

    Lacan, Deleuze, Badiou
    A. J. Bartlett - Hardback - 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.

    The Figure Of This World: Agamben And The Question Of Political Ontology
    Mathew Abbott - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    What if we've been wrong when reading Agamben? The work of the Italian Continental philosopher Giorgio Agamben is usually read in terms of critical theory or traditional political philosophy. Now Mathew Abbott argues that Agamben's thought has been widely misunderstood. Instead, he shows that it engages with political ontology: studying the political stakes of the question of being.
