        ISBN 9781844675623

      1. Buck-Morss’s post-9/11 attempt to educate herself about the intellectual tradition of Islam, in which she argues that we should move beyond the shock of the attacks and the war on terror, focusing instead on the possibility of developing a global counter-culture. As in all her works, here Buck-Morss considers certain aspects of art and visual culture in her analysis. See in particular ‘A Global Counter-Culture?,’ ‘Art in the Age of Technological Surveillance,’ and ‘Can There Be a Global Left?.’
