Uberreader by Avital Ronell

Book Description

For twenty years Avital Ronell has stood at the forefront of the confrontation between literary study and European philosophy. She has tirelessly investigated the impact of technology on thinking and writing, with groundbreaking work on Heidegger, dependency and drug rhetoric, intelligence and artificial intelligence, and the obsession with testing. Admired for her insights and breadth of field, she has attracted a wide readership by writing with guts, candour, and wit. Coyly alluding to Nietzsche's "gay science," "The UberReader" presents a solid introduction to Avital Ronell's later oeuvre. It includes at least one selection from each of her books, two classic selections from a collection of her early essays (Finitude's Score), previously uncollected interviews and essays, and some of her most powerful published and unpublished talks. An introduction by Diane Davis surveys Ronell's career and the critical response to it thus far. With its combination of brevity and power, this Ronell "primer" will be immensely useful to scholars, students, and teachers throughout the humanities, but particularly to graduate and undergraduate courses in contemporary theory.

Books By Author Avital Ronell

Fighting Theory by Avital Ronell Fighting Theory, Paperback (June 2010)

Offers a critical autobiographical overview of the work of Avital Ronell.

Blind Date by Avital Ronell Blind Date, Paperback (December 2007)

Although sex and philosophy have much in common, however, they have scarcely known one another. This study explains why philosophy has never been fully sexualized nor sex really philosophized. It highlights the marked deletion of sexual topics and themes from philosophical works, while also opening doors for their union.

Test Drive by Avital Ronell Test Drive, Paperback (December 2007)

Deals with the war perpetrated by highly determined reactionary forces on science and research. This work explores the crucial operations of an uncontestable legitimating machine. It offers a tour-de-force reading of legal, pharmaceutical, artistic, scientific, Zen, and historical grids that depend upon different types of testability.
