Description

Why Stoics Box presents another lively and engaging collection of essays by psychoanalyst and cultural theorist Jeanne Randolph. Often inspired by contemporary Canadian art work, Randolph's investigations into topics as diverse as Barbie?, boxing, surveillance, Joseph Conrad and Marshall McLuhan make for a provocative and entertaining read.The range and eclecticism of Randolph's thinking is reflected in her essay topics, which include: "Unsportsmanlike Conduct: Art and the Technological Ethos", "Hi-Tech Surveillance and Moral Imagination", and "Computing the Human."
