Download E-books Nietzsche Apostle (Semiotext(e) / Intervention Series) PDF

By Peter Sloterdijk

For Peter Sloterdijk, Friedrich Nietzsche represents not anything in need of a "catastrophe within the background of language" -- a brand new evangelist for a linguistics of narcissistic jubilation. Nietzsche provided a philosophical assertion of independence from humility, a meeting-point of sobriety and megalomania that for Sloterdijk has come to outline the very venture of philosophy.

Yet for all of the importance of this language-event named Nietzsche, Nietzsche's contributions have too frequently been elided and the contradictions on the root of his philosophy too frequently edited out. As Sloterdijk observes, "Never has an writer so insisted on contrast and but attracted such vulgarity." Nietzsche Apostle, drawn from a speech Sloterdijk gave in 2000 at the hundredth anniversary of Nietzsche's loss of life, seems to be on the ways that Nietzsche has been branded through the years via selective compilation, and on the ways that Nietzsche became himself right into a model -- a model introduced by means of his proclaimed "fifth Gospel," Thus Spoke Zarathustra. For Sloterdijk, the focal point shouldn't be at the determine of Zarathustra or at the "will to energy" frequently used as a type of philosophical shorthand to sum up Nietzsche's paintings, yet on Zarathustra's act of "speaking" itself. Nietzsche Apostle bargains a short historical past of puff up and self-affirmation, an exam of the evolution of boasting (both by means of God and via man), and a truly unique method of Nietzsche, philosophy's first fashion designer model of individualism.

Download E-books Textmaschinenkörper: Genderorientierte Lektüren des Androiden (Amsterdamer Beiträge zur neueren Germanistik 59) (German Edition) PDF

Textmaschinenkörper ist ein Neologismus, aufgebaut aus drei Lexemen, die, auf unterschiedliche Weise zu Neukombinationen verbunden – Textmaschine, Maschinenkörper, Textkörper –, jeweils das Sprachliche, Mechanische oder Leibliche betonen. Das Hyperonym der einzelnen Wörter ist indes Konstruktion: Texte, Maschinen und Körper sind Artefakte, deren Herstellungsgeschichte und Wirkung zwar sehr unterschiedlich sein kann, aber deren Signum der menschlichen Konstruktion sie jeweils zu Elementen der Kulturpraxis im weitesten Sinn macht und deren Bedeutung immer wieder neu erfasst werden muss. Die unter dem Titel “Textmaschinenkörper” gesammelten Aufsätze befassen sich mit der Darstellung des Maschinenkörpers in literarischen, filmischen und digitalen Texten. Sie analysieren Körper-, Geschlechter- und Menschenkonstruktionen, die auf einer Skala von Medien, vom schriftlich fixierten literarischen textual content bis zur digitalen Vorstellung im Computerspiel, repräsentiert und thematisiert werden. Der Band präsentiert erstmals dezidiert genderorientierte Analysen zum Motiv des künstlichen Menschen vor allem zur deutschsprachigen Literatur – von Automaten in der Dichtung des Mittelalters über Marionetten, Puppen und Automaten in der Romantik und in der Literatur des fin de siècle bis hin zu aktuellen Reflexionen über Körper, Technik und Reproduktion – und zur version des Motivs im movie des 20. Jahrhunderts – von city bis Matrix.

Download E-books Aux frontieres du vide: Beckett: Une ecriture sans memoire ni desir (Faux Titre 249) (French Edition) PDF

By Ciaran Ross

Si on pouvait rêver du vide, le rêve beckettien serait celui d’un monde sans mémoire, ni désir, un monde sans autrui – un monde évacué, sans littérature, ni mots, ni pensée. Sans lecteur. Un texte sans lecteur ou une scène sans acteurs.

L’œuvre beckettienne : une œuvre négative ?

Dans cet essai unique d’inspiration psychanalytique, Ciaran Ross défend l’idée qu’il est temps de réapprendre à lire los angeles négativité de Beckett . S’inscrivant dans une culture psychanalytique de los angeles relation d’objet qui va de Klein à Anzieu en passant par Winnicott et Bion, l’ancien analyste de Beckett, l’auteur suggest une nouvelle lecture de l. a. première trilogie et d’En attendant Godot, axée sur l’exploration et los angeles quête du vide et de l. a. négativité, avec ses "objets intermédiaires" , tels le "jeu" et los angeles "pensée" . Soucieux de nuancer et d’équilibrer l’équation entre théorie et texte, symptôme et écriture, l’auteur montre que c’est Beckett qui nous invite à interroger, par le jeu et l. a. pensée, son mind's eye et son écriture, si riches en matière négative. L’auteur fait pour los angeles première fois le lien entre les techniques psychanalytiques abordés dans cette étude – le vide, le jeu, l. a. pensée – et les ideas opératoires de los angeles critique post-structuraliste : écriture, différance, espacement, altérité.
