Paul Graham by Michael Mack

Book Description

Paul Graham's photographs touch upon the social fracture of America - the great divide - between included and excluded, black and white, have and have-not. It is a simple topic, shunned these days or dealt with through often cliched photo-journalism. American Night embraces this neglected territory in a series of shocking images which lodge firmly in our consciousness as they slip between the categories of art and document. The majority of the images are high key photographs which give the feeling of stepping out of a sheltered place into the sunlight, temporarily blinding the viewer with a whiteness that is overwhelming and endless. Drained of color, shadow and form, they resonate with the lives of those they portray walking, carrying, waiting and wandering in a whiteness that is bleached and endless, until the sequence snaps momentarily - either to a vibrant full color image of a new house, a freshly minted 'dream home', with blue sky, green grass, and a verdant palette that is perfect beyond attainment - or to an intensely dark street portrait, before returning to the endless blinding whiteness of everyday life.

Contaminations by Michael Mack Contaminations, Hardback (February 2016)

The figure of contamination as developed in this book offers a new perspective of negativity which questions the current influence of Hegelian dialectics in contemporary theory and philosophy. The book also offers a critical introduction to the critique of dialectics to which it at the same time contributes as an original piece of research.

German Idealism and the Jew by Michael Mack German Idealism and the Jew, Paperback (December 2013)

Uncovers the deep roots of anti-Semitism in the German philosophical tradition, contending that the redefinition of the Jews as an irrational, oriental Other forms the very cornerstone of German idealism.

How Literature Changes the Way We Think by Michael Mack How Literature Changes the Way We Think, Hardback (February 2012)

Both humanists and scientists have tended to think of the arts as a means to represent the world via imagination. The author maintains that the arts do not merely describe our world but that they also have the unique and under appreciated power to make us aware of how we can change accustomed forms of perception and action.
