Books received – Yusoff, Foucault, Koyré, Althusser, Kantorowicz

Books received

Some books that arrived while I was away – Kathryn Yusoff, A Billion Black Anthropocenes or None; a copy of Foucault’s Maladie mental et psychologie; Alexandre Koyré’s Newtonian Studies and From the Closed World to the Infinite Universe; the latest issue of Theory, Culture and Society; Louis Althusser’s Lettres à Franca; and Ernst KantorowiczLaudes Regiae.

Kathryn’s book was sent by University of Minnesota Press. Here’s the description:

Kathryn Yusoff examines how the grammar of geology is foundational to establishing the extractive economies of subjective life and the earth under colonialism and slavery. She initiates a transdisciplinary conversation between black feminist theory, geography, and the earth sciences, addressing the politics of the Anthropocene within the context of race, materiality, deep time, and the afterlives of geology.
