Collective Imaginings by Professor Moira Gatens

Book Description

Why would the work of the 17th century philosopher Benedict de Spinoza concern us today? How can Spinoza shed any light on contemporary thought? In this intriguing book, Moira Gatens and Genevieve Lloyd show us that in spite of or rather because of Spinoza's apparent strangeness, his philosophy can be a rich resource for cultural self-understanding in the present. Collective Imaginings draws on recent re-assessments of the philosophy of Spinoza to develop new ways of conceptualising issues of freedom and difference. This ground-breaking study will be invaluable reading to anyone wishing to gain a fresh perspective on Spinoza's thought.

Books By Author Professor Moira Gatens

Identity Politics in Deconstruction by Professor Moira Gatens Identity Politics in Deconstruction, Hardback (October 2008)

Investigates the nexus between 'the seemingly impossible of high theory and the seemingly accessible possibilities of popular discourse', as encountered in liberation movements based on identity. This book offers an explication of complex philosophical issues and an understanding of how they relate to the political practicalities of everyday life.

Vagueness, Logic and Ontology by Professor Moira Gatens Vagueness, Logic and Ontology, Hardback (July 2008)

Explores various responses to the philosophical problems generated by vagueness and its associated paradox - the sorites paradox. This work argues that the theoretical space in which vagueness is sometimes ontologically grounded and modelled by a truth-functional logic affords a coherent response to the problems posed by vagueness.

Augenblick by Professor Moira Gatens Augenblick, Hardback (January 2008)

Examines the extent of the idea of the 'decisive moment', in which an individual's entire life-project is open to a radical reorientation.

Protagoras and the Challenge of Relativism by Professor Moira Gatens Protagoras and the Challenge of Relativism, Hardback (October 2007)

Protagoras was an important Greek thinker of the fifth century BC, the most famous of the so called Sophists, though most of what we know of him comes through the dialogues of his strenuous opponent Plato. This book offers an examination of Protagoras' thought for modern readers: his role as the first Western thinker to argue for relativism.
