Many accounts of Max Weber portray him as a theoristof responsibility or "re-enchantment" - as one who can confirm for us theappropriateness of a liberal position given the conditions of life as moderns. This book, instead, uses an encounter with Weber as a starting point for tracing more broadly the contours of our technological era, given shape through intersecting scientific, political, philosophical, and theological problematics. Rooted in a philosophical tradition running from Nietzsche through Heidegger and drawing upon Franz Kafka's image of the "hunger artist", this book is a meditation upon the character of modern nihilism, and upon the Weberian thought of "disenchantment" which glimpses within rationalized life a profound emptiness. It will be of interest especially to those engaged in thinking about the relationships between religion, politics, and technology in the modern world, and the development of these themes within contemporary continental philosophy.

The History of Political Parties in Zimbabwe 19...

The first twenty years of independence in Zimbabwe saw the political landscape being dominated by political parties that had emerged from the bitter struggles and the liberation of the country from domination that come with colonialism in 1890. What emerged was the desire by those political parties in charge of state apparatus to dominate not only instruments of the state but other political forces. The first decade of independence was characterised by the use of violence as political parties jostled for political dominance. This struggle culminated in victory for the dominant ruling party ZANU which through coercive tactics and political dexterity swallowed the main opposition party ZAPU thus virtually silencing other opposition elements. The second decade of independence saw ZANU PF s domination challenged by political parties riding on the wave of a nascent democratization movement and a mission to end the populaces economic disenchantment that emanated from the governments decision to adopt the neo-liberal philosophy and structural adjustment.

Enchantments of Modernity

The notion of modernity hinges on a break with the past, such as superstitions, medieval worlds, and hierarchical traditions. It follows that modernity suggests the disenchantment of the world, yet the processes of modernity also create their own enchantments in the mapping and making of the modern world. Straddling a range of disciplines and perspectives, the essays in this edited volume eschew programmatic solutions, focusing instead in new ways on subjects of slavery and memory, global transformations and vernacular and vernacular modernity, imperial imperatives and nationalist knowledge, cosmopolitan politics and liberal democracy, and governmental effects and everyday affects. It is in these ways that the volume attempts to unravel the enchantments of modernity, in order to approach anew modernity's constitutive terms, formative limits, and particular possibilities.

A landmark collection of essays on the Nobel laureate's conception of Latin America, past, present, and future Throughout his career, the Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa has grappled with the concept of Latin America on a global stage. Examining liberal claims and searching for cohesion, he continuously weighs the reality of the continent against the image it projects, and considers the political dangers and possibilities that face this diverse set of countries. Now this illuminating and versatile collection assembles these never-before-translated criticisms and meditations. Reflecting the intellectual development of the writer himself, these essays distill the great events of Latin America's recent history, analyze political groups like FARC and Sendero Luminoso, and evaluate the legacies of infamous leaders such as Papa Doc Duvalier and Fidel Castro. Arranged by theme, they trace Vargas Llosa's unwavering demand for freedom, his embrace of and disenchantment with revolutions, and his critique of nationalism, populism, indigenism, and corruption. From the discovery of liberal ideas to a defense of democracy, buoyed by a passionate invocation of Latin American literature and art, Sabers and Utopias is a monumental collection from one of our most important writers. Uncompromising and adamantly optimistic, these social and political essays are a paean to thoughtful engagement and a brave indictment of the discrimination and fear that can divide a society.
