Very slight edgewear and faint creasing of spine and covers, otherwise a fine clean tight and bright copy - Former professor and French author Jean Baudrillard contemplates post-1960's Western culture. He argues that the sexual revolution led not to liberation but to confused sexual identity; the revolution in art has resulted in indifference; the cybernetic revolution has blurred the distinction between man and machine; and the political revolution has led to pseudo politics. So, what is real?

10 Carlyle, Thomas

Sartor Resartus Latter Day Pamphlets
London
Chapman & Hall
1893

First Thus
Hard Cover
Good





Hardcover, first combined thus - green cloth with gilt titles. Some edgewear, shelfwear, bowing of covers and bumped corners. Light foxing and age toning of text blocks. Despite stated flaws, still a good solid vintage copy. From Wikipedia: Thomas Carlyle's major work, Sartor Resartus (meaning 'The tailor re-tailored'), first published as a serial in 1833-34, purported to be a commentary on the thought and early life of a German philosopher called Diogenes Teufelsdröckh (which translates as 'god-born devil-dung'), author of a tome entitled "Clothes: their Origin and Influence", but was actually a poioumenon.Teufelsdröckh's Transcendentalist musings are mulled over by a skeptical English editor who also provides fragmentary biographical material on the philosopher. The work is, in part, a parody of Hegel, and of German Idealism more generally. However, Teufelsdröckh is also a literary device with which Carlyle can express difficult truths. Because Carlyle had difficulty finding a publisher for Sartor, he began composing it as an article in October 1831.[2] Fraser's Magazine serialised it in 1833-1834 and the text was published as an independent volume in Boston in 1836 and London in 1838.[3] Sartor Resartus was intended to be a new kind of book: simultaneously factual and fictional, serious and satirical, speculative and historical. It ironically commented on its own formal structure, while forcing the reader to confront the problem of where "truth" is to be found. In this respect it develops techniques used much earlier in Tristram Shandy, to which it refers. The imaginary "Philosophy of Clothes" holds that meaning is to be derived from phenomena, continually shifting over history, as cultures reconstruct themselves in changing fashions, power-structures, and faith-systems. The book contains a very Fichtean conception of religious conversion: based not on the acceptance of God but on the absolute freedom of the will to reject evil, and to construct meaning. This has led some writers to see Sartor Resartus as an early existentialist text. This book is extremely famous and discused.[citation needed] Sartor Resartus had a limited success in the USA, where it was admired by Ralph Waldo Emerson, influencing the development of New England Transcendentalism, and by Herman Melville, whose Moby-Dick was strongly influenced by Carlyle. Dwight Eisenhower, who kept this book with him from 1942 through 1945 while Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force, noted “Regarding the second part of this edition, again from Wiki: It is a wise man who has read this masterpiece and acts upon its call. Latter-Day Pamphlets was a series of "pamphlets" published by Thomas Carlyle in 1850, in vehement denunciation of what he believed to be the political, social, and religious imbecilities and injustices of the period. The book, which at one point vindicated slavery, failed to gain the approval of the Victorian public, and is often seen as a negative turning point in Carlyle's career. The best known of the essays in the collection is Hudson's Statue, an attack on plans to erect a monument to the bankrupted financier George Hudson, known as the "railway king". The essay expresses central theme of the book — the corrosive effects of populist politics and laissez faire capitalism. Carlyle also attacked the prison system, which he believed to be too liberal, and democratic parliamentary government. The imaginary figure of "Bobus", a corrupt sausage-maker turned politician, is used to epitomise the ways in which modern commercial culture saps the morality of society.
