Reoccupy Earth [Table Of Contents], 2019 Fordham University
Reoccupy Earth [Table Of Contents], David Wood
Habit rules our lives. And yet climate change and the catastrophic future it portends, makes it clear that we cannot go on like this.
Our habits are integral to narratives of the good life, to social norms and expectations, as well as to economic reality. Such shared shapes are vital. Yet while many of our individual habits seem perfectly reasonable, when aggregated together they spell disaster. Beyond consumerism, other forms of life and patterns of dwelling are clearly possible. But how can we get there from here?
Philosophy is about emancipation—from illusions, myths, and oppression. In Reoccupy Earth, the ...

Colonizing Christianity, 2019 Fordham University
Colonizing Christianity, George E. Demacopoulos
Colonizing Christianity employs postcolonial critique to analyze the transformations of Greek and Latin religious identity in the wake of the Fourth Crusade. It argues that the experience of colonization splintered the Greek community, which could not agree how best to respond to the Latin other. By offering a close reading of a handful of texts from the era of the Fourth Crusade and subsequent Latin Empire of Byzantium, this book illuminates mechanisms by which Western Christians authorized and exploited the Christian East and, concurrently, the ways in which Eastern Christians understood and responded to the dramatic shift in their political ...
The Mathematical Imagination, 2019 Fordham University
The Mathematical Imagination, Matthew Handelman
This book offers an archeology of the undeveloped potential of mathematics for critical theory. As Max Horkheimer and Theodor W. Adorno first conceived of the critical project in the 1930s, critical theory steadfastly opposed the mathematization of thought. Mathematics flattened thought into a dangerous positivism that led reason to the barbarism of World War II. The Mathematical Imagination challenges this narrative, showing how for other German-Jewish thinkers, such as Gershom Scholem, Franz Rosenzweig, and Siegfried Kracauer, mathematics offered metaphors to negotiate the crises of modernity during the Weimar Republic. Influential theories of poetry, messianism, and cultural critique, Handelman shows, borrowed ...
The Tongue-Tied Imagination [Table Of Contents], 2019 Fordham University
The Tongue-Tied Imagination [Table Of Contents], Tobias Warner
Should a writer work in a former colonial language or in a vernacular? The language question was one of the great, intractable problems that haunted postcolonial literatures in the twentieth century, but it has since acquired a reputation as a dead end for narrow nationalism.
Focusing on the case of Senegal, Warner investigates the intersection of French and Wolof. Drawing on an under-studied corpus of novels, poetry, and films in both languages, the book traces the emergence of a politics of language from colonization through independence to the era of neoliberal development.
Refusing to see the turn to vernacular languages ...
Exterranean [Table Of Contents], 2019 Fordham University
Exterranean [Table Of Contents], Phillip John Usher
“For anyone who might be suffering from Anthropocene fatigue, this is a book to jolt you from your slumbers. What happens to the globe when we shift attention from the outward projection of emissions to extraction ? The Earth we thought we knew, and were already mourning, takes on a stunning new critical light.”—Claire Colebrook, Pennsylvania State University
Exterranean concerns the extraction of stuff from the Earth, a process in which matter goes from being sub- to exterranean. By bringing a rich archive of nonmodern texts and images from across Europe, into conversation with the contemporary work of Bruno Latour ...
Killing Times [Table Of Contents], 2019 Fordham University
Killing Times [Table Of Contents], David Wills
Killing Times begins with the deceptively simple observation—made by Jacques Derrida in his seminars on the topic—that the death penalty mechanically interrupts mortal time by preempting the typical mortal experience of not knowing at what precise moment we will die.
Killing Times traces the logic of the death penalty across a range of sites. Starting with the struggles of American courts to articulate what methods of execution constitute “cruel and unusual punishment,” Wills goes on to show the ways that technologies of death have themselves evolved in conjunction with fraught ideas of cruelty and instantaneity, from the guillotine ...
Achieving Freedom From Suffering Through The Practice Of Meditative Yoga: A Comparative Investigation Of The Buddhadharma And Pātañjala-Yoga, Erin Piermarini
Mindfulness Studies Theses
This paper explores the relationship between the Buddhadharma and Pātañjala-yoga. Specifically, it looks at how the two traditions respond to the predicament of human suffering(dukkha). Though the two situate dukkhawithin their respective systems of metaphysics, resulting in divergent understandings of suffering, unsatisfactoriness, and stress and different rationales for practicing, the two employ nearly identical practical yoga methodologies to overcome this ubiquitous phenomenon. Each tradition situates meditative yogawithin an eight-part wise and ethical framework. Through this practice one is able to harness the power of concentration in a way that makes it possible to witness the flowering of ...

Frontiers Of Conditional Logic, 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
Frontiers Of Conditional Logic, Yale Weiss
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Conditional logics were originally developed for the purpose of modeling intuitively correct modes of reasoning involving conditional—especially counterfactual—expressions in natural language. While the debate over the logic of conditionals is as old as propositional logic, it was the development of worlds semantics for modal logic in the past century that catalyzed the rapid maturation of the field. Moreover, like modal logic, conditional logic has subsequently found a wide array of uses, from the traditional (e.g. counterfactuals) to the exotic (e.g. conditional obligation). Despite the close connections between conditional and modal logic, both the technical development and ...
Meaning Beyond Words: A Musical Analysis Of Afro-Cuban Batá Drumming, 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
Meaning Beyond Words: A Musical Analysis Of Afro-Cuban Batá Drumming, Javier Diaz
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
This dissertation consists of a musical analysis of Afro-Cuban batá drumming. Current scholarship focuses on ethnographic research, descriptive analysis, transcriptions, and studies on the language encoding capabilities of batá. However, this artistically sophisticated tradition demands a more in-depth study of its musical manufacture. Drawing from experience as a ritual batá player and as an oricha priest, I have completed the current study by following three primary analytical modalities: (1) sonic landscape, which encompasses: sound vocabulary, form, individual drum parts, and balance of musical elements; (2) timbral design, how the different batá sounds articulate meaningful and functionally distinguishable structures; (3) the ...

1919 - Catalogue Of Materials In The Archivo General De Indias For The History Of The Pacific Coast And The American Southwest, Chapman
Miscellaneous Documents and Reports
The Sevillian archive, Archivo General de Indias, contained a wealth of materials on almost every conceivable subject in Spanish colonial administration and was the most valuable single archive on that field in existence. As of 1919, much material of the Spanish period relating to regions now within the United States was still found in various local archives. The report listed the pertinent files on California history in general and that of regions in the direct line of approach to California, especially Baja California and Sonora but also affairs of the easterly provinces of the northern frontier from Nueva Vizcaya to ...
