is my hobby.
The Art of Living: Aesthetics of the Ordinary in World Spiritual Traditions (SUNY 1995)
I was fairly early on the idea of 'aesthetics of the everyday,' working from Dewey. Trying to go multi-cultural and Taoist/Buddhist, etc. I give my theory of art (the process theory: still your best bet).
Obscenity, Anarchy, Reality (SUNY 1996)
Written in a personal crisis and period of transformation: a Nietzschean affirmation of the entire universe!?
Act Like You Know: African-American Autobiography and White Identity (University of Chicago, 1998)
I was also fairly early on 'white identity studies.' I still think that was an important phase of self-reflection. I fell in love with Zora Neale Hurston, and wrote about hip hop.
End of Story: Toward an Annihilation of Language and History (SUNY 2000)
Really it's an attack on linguistic constructivism and postmodern narrative theory a la Rorty, MacIntyre, Ricoeur. Plenty of Kierkegaard and Wodehouse.
Extreme Virtue: Leadership and Truth in Five Great American Lives (SUNY 2003)
Namely, Emma Goldman, Voltairine de Cleyre, John Fire Lame Deer, Malcolm X, Barry Goldwater
Six Names of Beauty (Routledge, 2004)
Beauty is the object of longing. Little vignettes or essays in world-appreciation.
Against the State: An Introduction to Anarchist Political Theory (SUNY 2008)
Did you know that the arguments for the moral legitimacy of state power are an embarrassment to the human intellect?
Political Aesthetics (Cornell, 2010)
My best book! A new discipline! But maybe it is out of print.
