The Adventures of Waiterman, Lord of the Restaurant Jungle

The Adventures of Waiterman, Lord of the Restaurant Jungle

The Adventures of Waiterman: Lord of the Restaurant Jungle is a satirical work of non-fiction; part expose, part autobiography, which is salted with social commentary and occasional vitriolic rantings. It is an odyssey of growth, development, adventure and debauchery. Note from the Author: What's astounding to me is the utter lack of material, either written or filmed, depicting the restaurant industry in all its debauchery riddled glory. I mean this is an area absolutely rich for fodder, which could be appreciated by even the most solitary of hermits who have never worked or eaten in any type of eating establishment whatsoever. Therefore, my aim is to entertain by eliciting unbridled guffaws, but also to educate the naive masses about the bizarre world known as the restaurant jungle.

Adventures of the Symbolic

Post-Marxism and Radical Democracy

Adventures of the Symbolic

Marxism's collapse in the twentieth century profoundly altered the style and substance of Western European radical thought. To build a more robust form of democratic theory and action, prominent theorists moved to reject revolution, abandon class for more fragmented models of social action, and elevate the political over the social. Acknowledging the constructedness of society and politics, they chose the "symbolic" as a concept powerful enough to reinvent leftist thought outside a Marxist framework. Following Maurice Merleau-Ponty's Adventures of the Dialectic, which reassessed philosophical Marxism at mid century, Warren Breckman critically revisits these thrilling experiments in the aftermath of Marxism. The post-Marxist idea of the symbolic is dynamic and complex, uncannily echoing the early German Romantics, who first advanced a modern conception of symbolism and the symbolic. Hegel and Marx denounced the Romantics for their otherworldly and nebulous posture, yet post-Marxist thinkers appreciated the rich potential of the ambiguities and paradoxes the Romantics first recognized. Mapping different ideas of the symbolic among contemporary thinkers, Breckman traces a fascinating reflection of Romantic themes and resonances, and he explores in depth the effort to reconcile a radical and democratic political agenda with a politics that does not privilege materialist understandings of the social. Engaging with the work of Claude Lévi-Strauss, Cornelius Castoriadis, Claude Lefort, Marcel Gauchet, Ernesto Laclau, Chantal Mouffe, and Slavoj i ek, Breckman uniquely situates these important theorists within two hundred years of European thought and extends their profound relevance to today's political activism.
