Axel Honneth is best known for his critique of modern society centered on a concept of recognition. Jacques Rancière has advanced an influential theory of modern politics based on disagreement. Underpinning their thought is a concern for the logics of exclusion and domination that structure contemporary societies. In a rare dialogue, these two philosophers explore the affinities and tensions between their perspectives to provoke new ideas for social and political change.

Honneth sees modern society as a field in which the logic of recognition provides individuals with increasing possibilities for freedom and is a constant catalyst for transformation. Rancière sees the social as a policing order, and the political as a force that must radically assert equality. Honneth claims Rancière’s conception of the political lies outside of actual historical societies and involves a problematic desire for egalitarianism. Rancière argues Honneth’s theory of recognition relies on an overly substantial conception of identity and subjectivity. While impassioned, their exchange seeks to advance critical theory’s political project by reconciling the rift between German and French post-Marxist traditions and proposing new frameworks for justice.

Designed for undergraduate students, Gendered Bodies: Feminist Perspectives, Second Edition, is a concise textbook/reader that provides a critical and multifaceted approach to the study of gendered bodies. Acclaimed scholars Judith Lorber and Lisa Jean Moore analyze the construction of gendered bodies in different contexts. Exploring a broad range of both long-established and more cutting-edge topics in feminist studies, Lorber and Moore present scholarly research, offer information on relevant laws and political events, and point to directions for social change.

Gendered Bodies, Second Edition, focuses on key themes that reveal how gendered relations, ideologies, and practices shape human bodies. At the same time, it shows how human bodies are linked to other significant axes of inequality based on racial ethnic group, disability, sexuality, class, culture, religion, age, and nation. Thoroughly updated throughout, the second edition incorporates sixteen new selections--including non-Western perspectives--on such fascinating topics as evolution and motherhood; breastfeeding; breast cancer; the effects of height on men; job discrimination and transgendered people; world champion runner Caster Semenya and sex verification; disability, gender, and embodiment; and Palestinian female suicide bombers. It also adds new references and a concluding chapter, "Social Bodies in an Interconnected World."

Gendered Bodies, Second Edition, is ideal for courses on the body, feminist theory, women and health, and the sociology of gender. Each chapter includes a list of key concepts, three readings, and suggested readings. The book also includes an appendix of class exercises.

This volume compiles five papers modeling the effects of neoliberal economics on the emergence of Ebola and its aftermath. Neoliberalism is currently the world’s primary economic philosophy. It centers international relations around globalizing laissez-faire economics for multinational companies, promoting free trade, deregulating economic markets, and shifting state expenditures in favor of private property. The multidisciplinary teams represented here place both Ebola Makona, the Zaire Ebola virus variant that has infected 28,000 in West Africa, and Ebola Reston, which is currently emerging in industrial hog farms in the Philippines and China, within a multi-plank modeling framework. Using a stochastic extinction model that one group spatializes, environmental stochasticity across the ecologies in which Ebola evolves is treated as an ecosystemic prophylaxis. An agroecological logic gate is developed for epidemic control. A Black-Scholes model explicitly links economic margins across agricultural systems to success in biocontrol. This new control theory is further developed around the data-rate and rate-distortion theorems, a turbulence model, and cognitive symmetry breaking. Lastly, a model of pandemic penetrance is used to explore the domino effects of serious outbreaks amplifying through the cascades of disasters that can follow deadly pandemics. All the models presented are contextualized by socioeonomic geographies specific to outbreak locales.

The central insight of Darwin's Origin of Species is that evolution is an ecological phenomenon, arising from the activities of organisms in the 'struggle for life'. By contrast, the Modern Synthesis theory of evolution, which rose to prominence in the twentieth century, presents evolution as a fundamentally molecular phenomenon, occurring in populations of sub-organismal entities - genes. After nearly a century of success, the Modern Synthesis theory is now being challenged by empirical advances in the study of organismal development and inheritance. In this important study, D. M. Walsh shows that the principal defect of the Modern Synthesis resides in its rejection of Darwin's organismal perspective, and argues for 'situated Darwinism': an alternative, organism-centred conception of evolution that prioritises organisms as adaptive agents. His book will be of interest to scholars and advanced students of evolutionary biology and the philosophy of biology.

Muy posiblemente el impulso de este libro saliera de los golpes de estado financieros realizados en Irlanda, Portugal, Grecia, Italia, España y Chipre, llevados a cabo desde los mercados, pero con la complicidad de los políticos europeos.

Obra finalista del IV Premio Rara Avis de Ensayo, Reflexiones para crear ideas en el futuro de los Indignados es un extraordinario texto que ofrece un mundo de las ideas capaz de envolver teóricamente las contestaciones indignadas que se puedan producir hoy y mañana, y que necesitan un asentamiento ideológico provocador. Desde Sócrates a Gramsci, sin olvidar a Hegel, José Luis Caramés Lage comienza su discurso basándose en la filosofía clásica, en donde rescata los valores esenciales de una búsqueda original e innovadora asentada en la virtud, la sabiduría y la ética.

Cada día es más necesario crear una narrativa innovadora que nos pregunte por nuestro ahora y nuestro futuro con profundidad, es el planteamiento del autor, quien nos recuerda que en estos momentos hay que pensar que algo debe comenzar a ser diferente. El modelo de persona, la dialéctica del amo y el esclavo, la interculturalidad, la laicidad, la creatividad y la inspiración se presentan en este ensayo como básicos en el futuro, si queremos evitar ser esclavos.

Ilusionistas de Noam Chomsky (Ed. Irreverentes, 2013) se ha convertido en una guia de la literatura Indignada y ha impulsado el nacimiento de este libro, que propone las respuestas de cómo ir más allá de la Indignación, cómo comprender el mundo que nos están imponiendo, qué soluciones plantear y cómo participar en la activa deconstrucción del ilusionismo. El desorden establecido es la consecuencia del robo de lo social por una parte de los hombres. Este robo necesita una máscara que lo legitime, una ficción que lo convierta en aparente realidad, una ilusión. Los que crean la ilusión son los ilusionistas. Aquí se están rompiendo las ilusiones.

Los textos seleccionados son formas complementarias de expresar la disidencia, la Indignación y la Rebeldía ante lo que se nos impone como "lo dado", ante la ilusión generada y extendida de que no hay posibilidad de ir más allá, de cambiar nada. No se trata sólo de deconstruir, sino de romper las barreras de lo establecido por el capitalismo y las grandes instituciones internacionales y plantear una alternativa que nos permita vivir en un mundo creado por los hombres a su imagen y semejanza, no en medio de una realidad creada para satisfacer la avaricia de unos pocos.

Mathematical modeling is about rules--the rules of reality. Reality Rules explores the syntax and semantics of the language in which these rules are written, the language of mathematics. Characterized by the clarity and vision typical of the author's previous books, Reality Rules is a window onto the competing dialects of this language--in the form of mathematical models of real-world phenomena--that researchers use today to frame their views of reality.

Moving from the irreducible basics of modeling to the upper reaches of scientific and philosophical speculation, Volumes 1 and 2, The Fundamentals and The Frontier, are ideal complements, equally matched in difficulty, yet unique in their coverage of issues central to the contemporary modeling of complex systems.

Engagingly written and handsomely illustrated, Reality Rules is a fascinating journey into the conceptual underpinnings of reality itself, one that examines the major themes in dynamical system theory and modeling and the issues related to mathematical models in the broader contexts of science and philosophy. Far-reaching and far-sighted, Reality Rules is destined to shape the insight and work of students, researchers, and scholars in mathematics, science, and the social sciences for generations to come.
