MULTITUDE OF BLOGS None of the PDFs are my own productions. I've collected them from web (e-mule, avax, libreremo, socialist bros, cross-x, gigapedia..) What I did was thematizing. This blog's project is to create an e-library for a Heideggerian philosophy and Bourdieuan sociology Φ market-created inequalities must be overthrown in order to close knowledge gap. this is an uprising, do ya punk?

if you are in Frankfurt...

"Wo so viel sich hoffen läßt,
Wird der Abschied ja ein Fest."
Goethe, "Trauerreglement" (GW2, Dtv '77 edition, p.399)

Hi there, it has been a long time since I made a post here. Reasons are unknown to me, I couldn't come nearby. Distraction followed my steps (and like a lacanian psychoanalyst replaced the cause of my discontent). Ergo, again I continue*.

I am in frankfurt (this is the 4th week) and will be so for the end of August (learning german). If you around here, I would be very happy to meet (in a way, be my tandem partner). I wonder where are the intelligentsia, anarchists, communists... if you ahve time just e-mail to "farkyarasi1 _at_ gmail [dot] com"

and I'm reading three critiques in a row here am main, companies are welcomed with Turkish tea in thermos.

I'll write later, in a longer piece, my reflections on the german book world and bookstores (especially about the ironic coupling of two figures as bestsellers: Sloterdijk & Habermas. Is there anyone who knows how many Du musst dein lebern andern [sloterdijk's latest book] has been sold? It is in every bookstore in the bestseller shelf)

by the way, as my bibliomania reached to a coma-level here, here is the books that I have bought (I paid 3.6 euros at average, wunderbach! / "[...]" refers to the number of volumes / I put * to my favourites)

Of the Sublime: Presence in Question [made in istanbul]

Librett's labor yielded such a masterpiece that its invisibility is not without reason. In this wonderfully worked out volume, he translated Cerisy essays by

Jean-luc Nancy
Philippe Lacoue-labarthe
Jean-François Courtine (very rare in english)
Michel Deguy
(the goddess) Elaine Escobar
Louis Marin

burn down the letters, let pages get blind, for sublime is a terror and syncope, there remains for you, the task: laugh.


Rosenzweig - Understanding the Sick and the Healthy

Understanding the Sick and the Healthy: A View of World, Man, and God

Rosenzweig's Understanding the Sick and the Healthy is a rare gem of a book. The importance of Rosenzweig's work-like that of Walter Benjaminis only now beginning to emerge. Like Wittgenstein, Rosenzweig explicitly undertakes to provide a therapy that will liberate the reader from philosophical questions as they arise. Three features of Rosenzweig's little book now seem ahead of their time: first, his desire not to eliminate the wonder with which philosophical questioning begins; second, his insistence on reconceiving and thus preserving the traditional subject-matter of metaphysics; and third, his seminal thought that wonder within that nexus could be expressed within a life lived according to the liturgical calendar of Judaism, with its alternation between profane and sacred time?
--Paul Franks, Indiana University, Bloomington

Product Description
Franz Rosenzweig, one of the century's great Jewish thinkers, wrote his gem of a book in 1921 as a more accessible prcis of his famous Star of Redemption. An elegant introduction to Rosenzweig's "new thinking," Understanding the Sick and the Healthy was written for a lay audience and takes the form of an ironic narrative about convalescence. With superb simplicity and beauty, it puts forth an important critique of the nineteenth-century German Idealist philosophical tradition and expresses a powerful vision of Jewish religion. Harvard's Hilary Putnam provides a new introduction to this classic work for a contemporary audience.

(putnam wrote an introduction to this,sorrily it's a total self-celebration)

Jean-Luc Nancy - Dis-Enclosure: Deconstruction of Christianity [made in istanbul]

This book is a profound and eagerly anticipated investigation into what is left of a monotheistic religious spirit—notably, a minimalist faith that is neither confessional nor credulous. Articulating this faith as works and as an objectless hope, Nancy deconstructs Christianity in search of the historical and reflective conditions that provided its initial energy. Working through Blanchot and Nietzsche, re-reading Heidegger and Derrida, Nancy turns to the Epistle of Saint James rather than those of Saint Paul, discerning in it the primitive essence of Christianity as hope. The “religion that provided the exit from religion,” as he terms Christianity, consists in the announcement of an end. It is the announcement that counts, however, rather than any finality. In this announcement there is a proximity to others and to what was once called parousia. But parousia is no longer presence; it is no longer the return of the Messiah. Rather, it is what is near us and does not cease to open and to close, a presence deferred yet imminent.In a demystified age where we are left with a vision of a self-enclosed world—in which humans are no longer mortals facing an immortal being, but entities whose lives are accompanied by the time of their own decline—parousia stands as a question. Can we venture the risk of a decentered perspective, such that the meaning of the world can be found both inside and outside, within and without our so-immanent world?The deconstruction of Christianity that Nancy proposes is neither a game nor a strategy. It is an invitation to imagine a strange faith that enacts the inadequation of life to itself. Our lives overflow the self-contained boundaries of their biological and sociological interpretations. Out of this excess, wells up a fragile, overlooked meaning that is beyond both confessionalism and humanism.

Marder - Dead Time: Temporal Disorders in the Wake of Modernity (Baudelaire and Flaubert) [made in istanbul]

Marder - Dead Time: Temporal Disorders in the Wake of Modernity (Baudelaire and Flaubert)


new link

“This book is stunning in its ability to range widely and effectively over some of the most important, contested, and misunderstood regions of contemporary literary and cultural theory. A major and most welcome contribution to the study of two great canonical French authors, it is also a subtle but cogent intervention in the ongoing attempt to define and theorize a relation between the catchall concepts ‘modernism’ and ‘postmodernism.’”—Kevin Newmark, Boston College

Product Description
This book explores how modernity gives rise to temporal disorders when time cannot be assimilated and integrated into the realm of lived experience. It turns to Baudelaire and Flaubert in order to derive insights into the many temporal disorders (such as trauma, addiction, and fetishism) that pervade contemporary culture.
