The Order of Things Book Description :

When one defines "order" as a sorting of priorities, it becomes beautifully clear as to what Foucault is doing here. With virtuoso showmanship, he weaves an intensely complex history of thought. He dips into literature, art, economics and even biology in The Order of Things, possibly one of the most significant, yet most overlooked, works of the twentieth century. Eclipsed by his later work on power and discourse, nonetheless it was The Order of Things that established Foucault's reputation as an intellectual giant. Pirouetting around the outer edge of language, Foucault unsettles the surface of literary writing. In describing the limitations of our usual taxonomies, he opens the door onto a whole new system of thought, one ripe with what he calls "e...

The Order of Things Book Description :

From the Private First Class who knows his place (above a Private but below a Lance Corporal), to the classification of the natural world (Species, Genus, Family, Order . . .), we introduce hierarchies, pecking orders and ranks to every aspect of our lives, from society and religion to leisure and the law, establishing priorities and bringing order to our world. This miscellany of the various hierarchies that govern our existence ranges from the prosaically earthbound, in the form of roads and freeways, to the esoterically celestial, in the form of angels, seraphim, cherubims, archangels and so on. Who is more senior in a Chinese triad, a White Paper Fan or a Red Pole? What trumps a Straight Flush in poker? How many ranks are there between a Detectiv...

The Order of Things Book Description :

This publication documents an exhibition and seminar curated by Andrew Bick, Jonathan Parsons and Katie Pratt held at The Wilson, Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum in early 2017. The seminar lectures are transcribed as directly as possible into print format, and an additional performance by A K Dolven of her vinyl record JA as long as I can marked the end of the event.0The title, 'The Order of Things', is taken from the English translation of French philosopher Michel Foucault?s 1966 book, Les Mots et les Choses, (literally translated as ?words and things?). The book traces the origins of human thought through the arts, sciences, economics, and sociology. Underpinning Foucault?s discussion is the anthropological argument that human categorisation str...

The Order of Things Book Description :

James Schall, the well known author and professor at Georgetown University, inquires about the differing orders found in the cosmos, the human mind, the city, the human corpus and seeks to reflect on the unity of these orders. In a world in which the presence of mind and order are denied, presumably in the name of science, in favor of chance explanations of why things are as they are, it is surprising to find that, in area after area that is open to the human mind, we find a persistent order revealed. At first sight, this recurrence can be explained by chance occurrence, but after a point, the sense that behind things outside of our theories thee is, in fact, an order. This order can be traced in the various areas that are open to the human mind. Two...

The Strange Order of Things Book Description :

"Damasio undertakes nothing less than a reconstruction of the natural history of the universe. . . . [A] brave and honest book." --The New York Times Book Review The Strange Order of Things is a pathbreaking investigation into homeostasis, the condition that regulates human physiology within the range that makes possible not only survival but also the flourishing of life. Antonio Damasio makes clear that we descend biologically, psychologically, and even socially from a long lineage that begins with single living cells; that our minds and cultures are linked by an invisible thread to the ways and means of ancient unicellular existence and other primitive life-forms; and that inherent in our very chemistry is a powerful force, a striving toward life m...
