Žižek and Heidegger offers a radical new interpretation of the work of Slavoj Žižek, one of the world's leading contemporary thinkers, through a study of his relationship with the work of Martin Heidegger. Thomas Brockelman argues that Žižek's oeuvre is largely a response to Heidegger's philosophy of finitude, an immanent critique of it which pulls it in the direction of revolutionary praxis. Brockelman also finds limitations in Žižek's relationship with Heidegger, specifically in his ambivalence about Heidegger's techno-phobia. Brockelman's critique of Žižek departs from this ambivalence - a fundamental tension in Žižek's work between a historicist critical theory of techno-capitalism and an anti-historicist theory of revolutionary change. In addition to clarifying what Žižek has to say about our world and about the possibility of radical change in it, Žižek and Heidegger explores the various ways in which this split at the center of his thought appears within it - in Žižek's views on history or on the relationship between the revolutionary leader and the proletariat or between the analyst and the analysand.

This book presents Sinay's lucid and sensitive exploration of the most subtle and most profound aspects of love. Diving into everyday living, Sinay proposes concrete tasks that lead to the consolidation of the couple, to the art of living in a relationship.

This book examines the origins of the Old Testament, one of the foundation stones of Western Civilization. Adam to Ahab begins with a fictitious but plausible tale about how the early books of the Bible were written, providing a means for the reader to enter that ancient world in which the stories from Adam to Ahab were recorded. Then, synthesizing the works of nearly 50 outstanding scholars in the fields of biblical studies and archeology, Fred Stitt presents the scholarly consensus on the history and myth regarding the events that occurred prior to 587-586 BCE, before the destruction of the First Temple. "...shows a remarkable grasp of the current consensus of biblical scholarship, and expresses it in a concise way."- J. Collins, Professor of Old Testament, Yale University "The result is succinct and no-nonsense, yet delivered with a calm clarity and at times an utter delight...."-Richard A. Rosengarten, Dean, The University of Chicago Divinity School "I read your chapter on Jonah and Nahum and was tremendously impressed...so well presented, clear, straight-forward and very solid...a fine contribution."-Rabbi Herbert Bronstein, Senior Scholar, North Shore Congregation Isr'l in Glencoe, Illinois
