   5 Cohen, Jonathan R
Science, culture, and free spirits : a study of
Nietzsche-s Human, All-Too-Human / Jonathan R Cohen.--
New York: Humanity Books, 2010.
305p. , 21cm.
ISBN : 9781591026808.
128 NIE 141582
In this book, the author argues that -Human, All Too
Human- (1878) represents the crucial watershed for
Nietzsche-s philosophical development, the moment at
which he becomes who he is. He establishes the overall
framework of his later philosophy as the overcoming of
metaphysical barriers to the emergence of free spirits
who will be the avant-garde of culture. His use of
science to accomplish this goal gives this work a
positivistic slant unique in his corpus. The author
explains Nietzsche-s turnabout from his earlier
philosophy, analyzes the argumentative tactics by which
Nietzsche deploys science to undercut traditional
metaphysics, describes the character of the free spirits,
and examines the division of labor scheme that Nietzsche
prescribes for cultural progress.

ISBN : 9781848722132.

This book is about the impact of psychoanalysis on
critical debates in psychology. It includes a clear
account of psychoanalysis, and the different varieties of
the approach that are at work inside and outside the
discipline of psychology. It explores the status of
psychoanalysis as a series of concepts and as a
methodology, and shows how its clinical practice is
crucial to the way that it operates now in an academic
context. In doing so, the book sheds light on the
arguments currently occurring inside psychoanalysis, with
discussion of its relation to critical psychology,
psychosocial research, the health professions, culture
and social theory.

305.80095412 GOT 141701
Questioning the conventional depiction of India as a
nation divided between religious communities, Gottschalk
shows that individuals living in India have multiple
identities, some of which cut across religious
boundaries. The stories narrated by villagers living in
the northern state of Bihar depict everyday social
interactions that transcend the simple divide of Hindu
and Muslim.

ISBN : 9788190666800.
306.7660222 GUP 141623
Part of the first rank of a creative -migrant- generation
which became increasingly visible on the global visual
art scene in the 1980s, Sunil Gupta welds together a new
language of aesthetics, art, and politics in his work.
This book is more than just a memoir of a life, it is a
journey through the creation of a new visual vocabulary
that transformed words like diaspora, sexuality, sex,
migration, home, AIDS, and disease into images that
revealed and provoked other ways of seeing and
understanding. Documenting how the intimate and the
personal became political in places as different and as
similar as Delhi, London, San Francisco and Tilonia, it
is a fiercely contemporary work which will define new
directions in Indian visual art as well as in ongoing
debates about difference and sexuality.

xii, 321p. , 23cm.
ISBN : 9781107641211.
321.8095 KIM 141528
This book explores a mode of democracy that is culturally
relevant and socially practicable in the contemporary
pluralistic context of historically Confucian East Asian
societies, by critically engaging with the two most
dominant theories of Confucian democracy - Confucian
communitarianism and meritocratic elitism. It constructs
a mode of public reason (and reasoning) that is morally
palatable to East Asians who are still saturated in
Confucian customs by reappropriating Confucian
familialism and using this perspective to theorize on
Confucian democratic welfarism and political meritocracy.

With the landmark Delhi High Court victory in July 2009,
sexuality and the law entered mainstream, legal and
public discourse in India inviting both celebration and
resistance. How do we understand this conversation? The
July judgement stands on the shoulders of a much longer
history, argue the writers in this contemporary and
critical volume on queering the law. A longer history
that shapes, unsettles and challenges both legal and
queer histories and begins new conversations on the
intersections between bodies, politics, activism,
sexuality, identity and law. Some playful, some critical
and others reflective and irreverent, this unique
collection of pieces brings the life, structures and
institutions of law alive and shine with relevance in the
contemporary moment.

This book demonstrates that the professed goal of women-s
empowerment is a pretext for promoting economic
organizational goals and the interests of local elites.
The author shows how a project intended to benefit women,
through teaching them literary and agricultural skills,
fails to provide them with any of the promised resources.
She draws attention to the complexity of the process and
the active role played by the Nepalese rural women who
pursue their own interests and aspirations within this
unequal world.
