Histories of the Dustheap - Waste, Material Cul...
13,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Garbage, considered both materially and culturally, elicits mixed responses. Our responsibility toward the objects we love and then discard is entangled with our responsibility toward the systems that make those objects. Histories of the Dustheap uses garbage, waste, and refuse to investigate the relationships between various systems--the local and the global, the economic and the ecological, the historical and the contemporary--and shows how this most democratic reality produces identities, social relations, and policies. The contributors first consider garbage in subjective terms, examining 'toxic autobiography' by residents of Love Canal, the intersection of public health and women's rights, and enviroblogging. They explore the importance of place, with studies of post-Katrina soil contamination in New Orleans, e-waste disposal in Bloomington, Indiana, and garbage on Mount Everest. And finally, they look at cultural contradictions as objects hover between waste and desirability, examining Milwaukee's efforts to sell its sludge as fertilizer, the plastics industry's attempt to wrap plastic bottles and bags in the mantle of freedom of choice, and the idea of obsolescence in the animated film The Brave Little Toaster. Histories of the Dustheap offers a range of perspectives on a variety of incarnations of garbage, inviting the reader to consider garbage in a way that goes beyond the common 'buy green' discourse that empowers individuals while limiting environmental activism to consumerist practices. The hardcover edition does not include a dust jacket.

Thinking God
33,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The last decade or so has seen many books from what might be called ''the new atheists.'' One thinks, for example, of Richard Dawkins or Christopher Hitchens. They have captured the interest of the general reading public and have sold well. Often, however, they have loaded the dice against Christian belief in a most unfair fashion. Arguments and issues have been summarily dismissed after the most cursory of treatments. Thinking God, written by a philosopher and a theologian, father and son, invites the reader to a more reflective consideration of the issues around God and the traditional fabric of Christian belief in a fair and openhanded fashion. Issues, both traditional and more contemporary, have been engaged. The result is an invitation to think of Christian faith seriously, reflectively, and critically. ''A very timely and helpful book which sets out and discusses in a clear and informed manner a number of fundamental challenges to belief in God today. The authors, turning to philosophy and theology, draw on the resources of the past while engaging in dialogue with contemporary thinking.'' -Santiago Sia Milltown Institute, Ireland ''This book discusses central topics in philosophical or fundamental theology and the philosophy of religion and will be very useful to Roman Catholic seminary and college students. It does not attempt to survey all possible positions on these topics, but aims at giving students a feel for how theologians and religiously oriented philosophers approach these topics and questions. Its great strength is that it stimulates critical reflection: it would serve as an excellent basis for class discussions.'' -Thomas E. Hosinski, CSC University of Portland Owen F. Cummings is Regents' Professor of Theology at Mount Angel Seminary in St. Benedict, Oregon. He has published many books and articles in the field of systematic theology and church history. Andrew C. Cummings is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Mount Angel Seminary, and author of articles in medieval and modern philosophy.
