Polar Inertia by Paul Virilio

Book Description

Examining how the 'here and now' of space, territory, the body, are being redefined by new technologies and how this undoes simplistic versions of the globalization thesis, Paul Virilio demonstrates how technology has made inertia the defining condition of modernity. An instantaneous present has replaced space and the sovereignty of territory; everything happens without the need to go anywhere. This book will be a key reference for students and scholars of the latest thinking in social theory.

Great Accelerator by Paul Virilio Great Accelerator, Hardback (May 2012)

On 10 September 2008, amid much fanfare, the Great Collider run by CERN in Geneva was turned on. The Collider was supposed to fire protons around a seventeen-mile loop of tunnels, causing them to crash into one another at close to the speed of light and break into even tinier particles.

Winter's Journey by Paul Virilio Winter's Journey, Hardback (August 2011)

French cultural theorist and urbanist Paul Virilio is best known for his writings on media, technology, and architecture. This title gathers conversations in which Virilio and architectural writer Marianne Brausch look at a 20th century characterized by enormous technological acceleration and by technocultural accidents of barbarism and horror.
