Stanley Cavell: Skepticism, Subjectivity and the Ordinary

By Espen Hammer

Polity Press, Great Britain, 2002. Softcover. Very Good Condition. Stanley Cavell is a leading figure in American philosophy and one of the most exhilarating and wide-ranging intellectuals of our time. In this book Espen Hammer offers a lucid and thorough account of the development of Cavell's work, from his early writings on ordinary language philosophy and skepticism to his most recent contributions to film studies, literary theory, romanticism, ethics, and politics. The book traces the many lines of skepticism occurring in Cavell's work and shows how they amount to a rich and subtle picture of human subjectivity. Hammer explores Cavell's passionate engagement with Austin and Wittgenstein's visions of language, and his uncovering of conceptions of the ordinary in Emerson and Thoreau. Central sections of the book are devoted to the tragic and the comic as these modes of existence come into play in Shakespeare and Hollywood cinematic drama. In elaborating Cavell's responses to thinkers such as Heidegger, Levinas, and Derrida, the author situates Cavell's writing within the wider context of contemporary continental philosophy. Hammer clearly reveals the existential dimensions of Cavell's thought. He argues that his variant of ordinary language philosophy is a vital stimulus to self-transformation in cognitive, aesthetic, ethical, and political domains, contributing significantly to a rethinking of issues such as responsibility and autonomy, and the relationship between philosophy and literature. A critical introduction to the thought of an inordinately complex writer, this book will be of great interest to students and scholars in philosophy, literary theory, cultural theory, comparative literature, and media and cultural studies. 199 pages.

Hodder & Stoughton, Great Britain, 1984. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good.

Johnny Depp: A Modern Rebel

By Brian J. Robb

Hodder & Stoughton, Australia, 1996. Softcover. Very Good Condition. Johnny Depp is one of Hollywood's bad boys, refusing to conform to expectations, and taking unconventional film roles. This biography describes how, after childhood drug problems, a troubled home background, and an initial career in rock music, Depp moved to Hollywood to achieve critical acclaim in films such as "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?", "Edward Scissorhands" and "Benny and Joon". He has also achieved notoriety as co-owner of The Viper Room, the LA club where River Phoenix died, and for his high-profile relationships, with Winona Ryder, to whom he was engaged, and the English model, Kate Moss, with whom he is presently involved. The book also shows how Depp is considered to have a comic gift as an actor, and how fellow stars, including Marlon Brando, Faye Dunawaye and Mickey Rourke, have given him and his work glowing tributes.

Paul Newman: A Life

Paul Newman: A Life

By Shawn Levy

Aurum, Great Britain, 2010. Softcover. Good Condition. Paul Newman, who died in 2008, achieved superstar status by playing charismatic renegades, broken heroes, and winsome anti-heroes in such classic films as The Hustler, Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Verdict and The Color of Money. And for all the diverse parts he played on the silver screen, Newman occupied nearly as many roles off it. He was a loving husband and family man, a fund raiser, sold his own brand of pasta sauce to make millions for charity, drove racing cars, and much more. Shawn Levy reveals the many sides of this legendary actor in the most comprehensive biography of the star yet published. We see Newman the consummate professional, a stickler for details and a driven worker. In his private life he played the roles of loyal son and brother, supportive husband - married to Joanne Woodward for 50 years - and responsible provider for six children. But Levy shows that Newman and his life were by no means perfect: there was a dalliance with another woman and failings as a father. The death of his only son Scott from a drug overdose in 1978 would haunt Newman for the rest of his life. Ultimately, the author reveals how Newman was able to blend his many roles and become a man of great integrity who was successful at almost everything he tried. It is a fascinating portrait of an extraordinarily gifted man and will leave readers feeling that they have slipped through the security gate and got to know a movie star who was famously guarded about his private life. 490 pages. Pages browned at edges. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Biography; Biography & Autobiography; film.

By Valerie Pascal

McGraw Hill, New York, 1970. First UK Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. This book is Valerie Pascal's biography of her husband – a candid memoir of a man whose career spanned continents, who knew and worked with virtually every important film and theatre personality of his day, who savoured brilliant triumphs yet fought with stubborn courage the misfortunes that circumstances and his own wilful nature brought upon him. It is also a fascinating portrait – highlighted by numerous lively quotations from the unpublished Sean – Pascal correspondence – of George Bernard Shaw in his vigourous old age, involved to the hilt in Pascal's films of his plays, as concerned with the finances of the productions as with the details of casting, direction, and scripts.
