Nihilism

Most significant problems of contemporary life have their origins in nihilism and its paradoxical logic, which is simultaneously destructive to and constitutive of society. Yet, in social theory, nihilism is a surprisingly under-researched topic.

This book develops a systematic account of nihilism in its four main forms: escapism, radical nihilism, passive nihilism and 'per

Bülent Diken, kitabındaki çoğu referansı büyük keyifle takip ettim dostum. Bir de şu filmlerle ilgili yazdığın sosyoloji kitabına göz atayım.

Çoğumuzun duymadığı ve belki de çoğu kimsenin hayatı boyunca karşılaşmayacağı bir isim Doktor Bulent Diken, Lancaster Üniversitesinde öğretim üyesi. Kitabın başında ufak bir tanıtım kısmı ayrılmış. Fakat bence kitabın kendisi, Bulent Diken'i tanıyabilmemiz için daha önemli bir kaynak. Bizi Bulent Diken ile buluşturan yayınevi, elbette ki, Ayrıntı. Galiba Türkiye'de en kaliteli kitapları basan yayınlardan biri. Son dönemlerde ortalıkta battıklarına dair haberler dönüyor, umarım yalandır.

Shelves: philosophy
Very good, though it presupposes a lot of background knowledge, especially in Deleuze & Guattari. Illustrative, helpful, some useful schemas.

On the other hand, I still cannot figure out how there are FREQUENT recourses to Žižek, Zupančič, and Lacan, who would HATE the conclusions Diken comes to! I mean, he's defending Nietzche and Deleuze & Guattari—and as such, some of the really, really obvious criticism (and which I obviously don't have an answer to)—why aren't Nietzsche's illusions j

I don't like Diken's main argument about Michel Houellebecq's novels, since I see a highly 'liberating'/positive aspect/potential in them. In addition, I don't see Nuri Bilge Ceylan's Climates as a so-much relevant case for investigating contemporary nihilism (one could possibly find much better movies -given the fact that the author has already another book relating cinema with sociology).
