Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 1984. 254pp. looks unused. Responding to this challenge, the specially-commissioned articles gathered in The limits of death bring together specific moments in contemporary cultural theory, continental thought, literature, art, photography, film, and music. The limits of death contains three sections: 'Death and philosophy' addresses the thought of influential figures in modern philosophy, focusing on the possibility of knowing and experiencing death; 'The body of death' explores the ways in which consideration of the material body, the human, and the post-human impacts upon attempts to conceptualise death; 'Death and testimony' offers a series of narratives which endeavour to speak with the dead, through emotive encounters with the very borders of death itself. Following a preface from Elisabeth Bronfen, The limits of death includes essays by: Boris Belay, Dave Boothroyd, Fred Botting and Scott Wilson, Simon Critchley, Jonathan Dollimore, Alphonso Lingis, John Llewelyn, Suhail Malik, Griselda Pollock, Nicholas Royle, Allan Stoekl, and Steve Sweeney-Turner.. Paperback. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
