Power and Invention by Isabelle Stengers

Book Description

Using the law of thermodynamics, Stengers sets out to explain the consequences of non-linear dynamics (or chaos theory) for philosophy and science. The author makes a case for the concept of complexity that transcends the conventional boundaries of scientific discourse and that clearly exposes the risks of scientific theories.

Books By Author Isabelle Stengers

Thinking with Whitehead by Isabelle Stengers Thinking with Whitehead, Paperback (September 2014)

In "Thinking with Whitehead, " Isabelle Stengers one of today s leading philosophers of science goes straight to the beating heart of Whitehead s thought. Both an erudite yet accessible introduction and a highly advanced commentary, it establishes the mathematician-philosopher as a daring thinker on par with Deleuze, Guattari, and Foucault.

Cosmopolitics II by Isabelle Stengers Cosmopolitics II, Paperback (September 2011)

A sweeping inquiry that critiques modern science s claims of objectivity, rationality, and truth"

Capitalist Sorcery by Isabelle Stengers Capitalist Sorcery, Hardback (March 2011)

Capitalist Sorcery neither sets out a new political programme nor offers a new theory. Rather, it aims to encourage all those who are resistant to resignation and inertia, whose stories of partial successes must be told, celebrated and shared.
