By Eugene Thacker

Life is considered one of our most elementary suggestions, and but whilst tested at once it proves remarkably contradictory and elusive, encompassing either the broadest and the main particular phenomena. we will see this uncertainty approximately existence in our behavior of imminent it as anything right away medical and mystical, within the go back of vitalisms of all kinds, and within the pervasive politicization of lifestyles. briefly, existence turns out all over the place at stake and but is nowhere the same.

In After Life, Eugene Thacker clears the floor for a brand new philosophy of existence by means of improving the twists and turns in its philosophical historical past. starting with Aristotle’s originary formula of a philosophy of lifestyles, Thacker examines the effect of Aristotle’s rules in medieval and early sleek concept, best him to the paintings of Immanuel Kant, who notes the inherently contradictory nature of “life in itself.” alongside the way in which, Thacker indicates how early smooth philosophy’s engagement with the matter of lifestyles impacts thinkers similar to Gilles Deleuze, Georges Bataille, and Alain Badiou, in addition to modern advancements within the “speculative flip” in philosophy.

At a time whilst existence is labeled, measured, and exploited in numerous methods, After Life invitations us to delve deeper into the contours and contradictions of the age-old query, “what is life?”

Invariant Random Fields on Spaces with a Group Action (Probability and Its Applications)

The writer describes the present state-of-the-art within the concept of invariant random fields. This concept relies on numerous diverse components of arithmetic, together with chance conception, differential geometry, harmonic research, and specific capabilities. the current quantity unifies many effects scattered during the mathematical, actual, and engineering literature, in addition to it introduces new effects from this zone first proved by way of the writer.

Physik ohne Realität: Tiefsinn oder Wahnsinn? (German Edition)

Beschreiben die Begriffe der modernen Physik die „Realität“ oder sind sie nur Hilfsmittel und Rechenwerkzeuge? Wie können reale Objekte aus Atomen aufgebaut sein, wenn diese angeblich gar keine realen Eigenschaften vor deren Messung besitzen? Wie kann Schrödingers Wellenfunktion erfolgreich die Struktur und Stabilität von Atomen, Molekülen und Festkörpern beschreiben, wenn sie nur „menschliches Wissen“ oder abstrakte „Information“ darstellt?
