"In his essay, Christoph Menke (b.1958), Professor of Philosophy at the Goethe-University, Frankfurt am Main, focuses on the question of how and where there is equality between human beings. The author examines different notions throughout the history of philosophy, as well as varying political concepts, such as the contrarian interpretations of fascism and communism, and the differing reflections on the connection between equality and reason by Aristotle and Descartes. Responding to our current debate about the question of equality, Menke proposes a continuation through an "aesthetics of equality", which radicalizes enlightenment's assumption according to which all people have the same ability to reason. Here, equality consists of a force, an agency to imagine, given to all people -- the equality of the possibility for an exercised and exercising formation of reason, which is not a given but a socially acquired capacity."--Publisher's website.

"In Open 19, the concept of privacy is examined and reconsidered from the legal, sociological, media theoretical, and activist perspectives. The focus is not so much on deploring the loss of privacy, but taking the present situation of 'post-privacy' for what it is and trying to gain insight into what is on the horizon in terms of new subjectivities and power constructions"--from p. [4] of cover.

An exploration of the intimate and inextricable relationship between architecture, power, money and politics in the twentieth century. How and why have presidents, prime ministers, mayors, millionaires and bishops come to share such a fascination with architecture? From Blair to Mitterrand, from Hitler to Stalin to Saddam Hussein, architecture has become an end in itself, as well as a means to an end. This is a book of genuine timeliness, throwing new light on the aspirations and the motivations of the rich and powerful across the world - and on the political nature of contemporary culture.
