Waste: A Philosophy of Things by William Viney

By William Viney

Why are humans so attracted to what they and others throw away? This ebook indicates how this curiosity in what we discard is much from new - it truly is necessary to how we make, construct and describe our lived surroundings. As this wide-ranging new research unearths, waste has been a polarizing subject for millennia and has been taken care of as a wealthy source by means of artists, writers, philosophers and designers. Drawing at the works of Giorgio Agamben, T.S. Eliot, Jacques Derrida, Martin Heidegger, James Joyce, Bruno Latour and so forth, Waste: A Philosophy of Things investigates the complexities of waste in sculpture, literature and structure. It lines a brand new philosophy of items from the traditional to the trendy and may be of curiosity to these operating in cultural and literary stories, archaeology, structure and continental philosophy.
