Voici "un livre pionnier qui a bien su montrer toutes les facettes du mouvement des femmes tunisiennes et par là même des femmes arabes dans ce qu'il a de plus révolutionnaire pour la société, un rôle qui est apparu de manière encore plus évidente lors de la révolution tunisienne de 2011" (Georges Corm). L'auteure nous dévoile la vie intérieure déchirante d'une jeune femme libanaise au cours d'une année passée en Tunisie. Aux heures tragiques d'aujourd'hui, ce récit nous apprend que, du côté des femmes arabes, une révolution en sommeil attend toujours et encore son heure.

McCoy examines how Greek epic, tragedy, and philosophy offer important insights into the nature of human vulnerability, especially how Greek thought extols the recognition and proper acceptance of vulnerability. Beginning with the literary works of Homer and Sophocles, she also expands her analysis to the philosophical works of Plato and Aristotle.

Vous trouverez dans ce petit livre tout ce que vous avez toujours voulu savoir à propos des mots anglais, et même des mots français, grâce à la cohabitation heureuse et fructueuse des deux langues pendant au moins trois siècles. Vous apprendrez, entre autres, que les currants d'aujourd'hui étaient les raisins de Corinthe d'hier, que la même racine indo-européenne a donné les mots science, ski, et shit, et qu'au XVIe siècle le remords mordait réellement. Bien plus qu'un simple recueil d'anecdotes, Wondering about Words répond à de nombreuses questions souvent posées, telles que : pourquoi l'anglais possède-t-il souvent deux ou trois mots pour dire la même chose ? quelle est la différence entre say, speak et tell ? d'où viennent les faux amis ? Rédigé dans un anglais simple (les mots les moins courants sont traduits entre parenthèses), Wondering about Words vous donnera un nouveau regard sur la langue anglaise. Pour faciliter les recherches, deux index alphabétiques reprennent respectivement les mots anglais et français évoqués dans l'ouvrage.

In modern liberal democracies, rights-based judicial intervention in the policy choices of elected bodies has always been controversial. For some, such judicial intervention has trivialized and impoverished democratic politics. For others judges have contributed to a dynamic and healthy dialogue between the different spheres of the constitution, removed from pressures imposed on elected representatives to respond to popular sentiment. This book provides a critical evaluation of ongoing debates surrounding the judicial role in protecting fundamental human rights, focusing in particular on legislative/executive abridgment of a core freedom in western society - namely, liberty of expression. A range of types of expression are considered, including expression related to electoral processes, political expression in general and sexually explicit forms of expression.

Understanding Deleuze, Understanding Modernism explores the multi-faceted and formative impact of Gilles Deleuze on the development and our understanding of modernist thought in its philosophical, literary, and more broadly cultural manifestations. Gilles Deleuze himself rethought philosophical history with a series of books and essays on individual philosophers such as Kant, Spinoza, Leibniz, Nietzsche, and Bergson and authors such as Proust, Kafka, Beckett and Woolf, on the one hand, and Bacon, Messiaen, and Pollock, among others, in other arts. This volume acknowledges Deleuze's profound impact on a century of art and thought and the origin of that impact in his own understanding of modernism. Understanding Deleuze, Understanding Modernism begins by "conceptualizing" Deleuze by offering close readings of some of his most important works. The contributors offer new readings that illuminate the context of Deleuze's work, either by reading one of Deleuze's texts against or in the context of his entire body of work or by challenging Deleuze's readings of other philosophers. A central section on Deleuze and his aesthetics maps the relationships between Deleuze's thought and modernist literature. The volume's final section features an extended glossary of Deleuze's key terms, with each definition having its own expert contributor.
