It is the first book to address management of both traditional intellectual property and the broader set of knowledge assets in a single resource.

The Public Intellectual and the Culture of Hope

The Public Intellectual and the Culture of Hope brings together a number of winners of the Polanyi Prize in Literature – a group whose research constitutes a diversity of methodological approaches to the study of culture – to examine the rich but often troubled association between the concepts of the public, the intellectual (both the person and the condition), culture, and hope. The contributors probe the influence of intellectual life on the public sphere by reflecting on, analyzing, and re-imagining social and cultural identity. The Public Intellectual and the Culture of Hope reflects on the challenging and often vexed work of intellectualism within the public sphere by exploring how cultural materials – from foundational Enlightenment writings to contemporary, populist media spectacles – frame intellectual debates within the clear and ever-present gaze of the public writ large. These serve to illuminate how past cultures can shed light on present and future issues, as well as how current debates can reframe our approaches to older subjects.

The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual Reconsidered

Thirty-five years after its initial publication, Harold Cruse's "The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual," remains a foundational work in Afro-American Studies and American Cultural Studies. Published during a highly contentious moment in Afro-American political life, "The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual" was one of the very few texts that treated Afro-American intellectuals as intellectually significant. The essays contained in Harold Cruse's "The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual Reconsidered" are collectively a testimony to the continuing significance of this polemical call to arms for black intellectuals. Each scholar featured in this book has chosen to discuss specific arguments made by Cruse. While some have utilized Cruse's arguments to launch broader discussions of various issues pertaining to Afro-American intellectuals, and others have contributed discussions on intellectual issues completely ignored by Cruse, all hope to pay homage to a thinker worthy of continual reconsideration.

The Hungarian social philosopher and literary critic Georg Lukcs (1885-1971) is one of the seminal intellectual figures of the twentieth century. With the possible exception of Leon Trotsky, he is also widely recognized as the outstanding Marxist thinker aside from Marx himself. Yet, as Lewis Coser has observed, Lukcs has remained the most enigmatic figure of the modern communist movement. Why were his theories so important to modern political and social thought? How did he come to have such influence on so many distinguished Western Intellectuals, and for such a long time? And why, despite this, did so many of his writings infuriate contemporary readers and critics? The centenary of Lukcs birth was celebrated in 1985 with symposia in a number of countries on several continents. Hundreds of Lukcs scholars and students attended, along with others who were interested in his time and his ideas, as well as the man and his work. In the process, new understanding of some of his most controversial concepts, ideas, and theses emerged. Newly discovered information and writings, as well as previously unknown preocupations in his seventy-year intellectual career were shared. This volume brings together some of the best and most original of the essays of participants in New York, Paris, Budapest, and Mexico City. Some of the contributions in this volume are sharply critical of Lukcs; others are clearly admiring. A great many take an objective but severe look at diverse aspects of his work. Together they constitute a close examination of the life work of the man Thomas Mann once called "The most important literary critic of today," Jean-Paul Sartre hailed as a significant modern philosopher," and Irving Howe declared "a major force in European intellectual life." Collectively, this volume shows why Georg Lukcs remains one of the remarkable intellectual figures of the twentieth century, whose work is of enduring significance for us today. Judith Marcus is on the faculty of Kenyon College. She is the author of Thomas Mann and Lukcs. Zoltn Tarrwas visiting Fulbright Scholar to Budapest, Hungary, and has taught sociology and history at the City College of CUNY, New School for Social Research, and Rutgers University. He is author of The Frankfurt School, The Critical Theories of Max Horkheimer and Theodor W. Adorno.

Targeted to anyone considering a career as an interactive composer, you’ll learn if you truly have the talent, or if your college simply emptied your wallet. This is not another “how to” guide about technology. It challenges the artistic model the game industry has adopted for interactive music, and why the industry failed to support the development of its own musical identity. It also includes an examination of various composition methods that the industry now defines as “acceptable” for use in a non-linear environment. You’ll learn how much money is required to launch a career as a composer, with advice on how to win contracts through effective marketing, what you can reasonably charge for your services, plus advice on who to avoid in this business. Find out how the composer’s role in this industry has changed in the last twenty years, and what the next twenty might bring. Authored by a game composer and former college professor credited with more than fifty game titles.
