Jean-Luc Nancy's On the Commerce of Thinking concerns the particular communication of thoughts that takes place by means of the business of writing, producing, and selling books. His reflection is born out of his relation to the bookstore, in the first place his neighborhood one, but beyond that any such "perfumery, rotisserie, patisserie," as he calls them, dispensaries "of scents and flavors through which something like a fragrance or bouquet of the book is divined, presumed, sensed." On the Commerce of Thinking is thus not only something of a semiology of the specific cultural practice that begins with the unique character of the writer's voice and culminates in a customer crossing the bookstore threshold, package under arm, on the way home to a comfortable chair, but also an understated yet persuasive plea in favor of an endangered species. In evoking the peddler who, in times past, plied the streets with books and pamphlets literally hanging off him, Nancy emphasizes the sensuality of this commerce and reminds us that this form of consumerism is like no other, one that ends in an experience-reading-that is the beginning of a limitless dispersion, metamorphosis, and dissemination of ideas. Making, selling, and buying books has all the elements of the exchange economy that Marx analyzed--from commodification to fetishism--yet each book retains throughout an absolute and unique value, that of its subject. With reading, it gets repeatedly reprinted and rebound. For Nancy, the book thus functions only if it remains at the same time open and shut, like some Moebius strip. Closed, it represents the Idea and takes its place in a canon by means of its monumental form and the title and author's name displayed on its spine. But it also opens itself to us, indeed consents to being shaken to its core, in being read each time anew.

This book provides an understanding of e-commerce by deconstructing it into its main constituents and explaining how they fit together. The objective is to introduce some consistency to the often contradictory views about e-commerce, bringing together different academic and management theories and frameworks into a coherent whole. It is written with a European perspective with examples that are drawn from around the globe, consistent with the nature of e-commerce. Visit the companion website An companion web site with links to exercises, further reading sections and teaching materials is available at www.tassabehji.co.uk This textbook gives an overview of e-commerce, relevant issues and frameworks. It looks at the foundations on which e-commerce is built - the technology. Managers and students of management must have an understanding of the infrastructure and inextricable linkages between processes and technology in a 21st century business. It is no longer acceptable or good business practice for technology to be the sole responsibility of IT departments. The book then goes on to examine businesses that have been built on these technology foundations. It explains the concept of the business model, the `dot com' phenomenon and frameworks that have emerged as a result. It also outlines the legal and ethical implications for an e-business. It outlines the academic debate about the impact of e-commerce on economics and management thinking. It concludes with a glance to the future, exploring the potential new wave of technology. This textbook will be essential for undergraduate and post graduate students. It is a user-friendly text with case studies, and learning objectives to guide the student and lecturers. A companion website will accompany the text including cases, student activities, PowerPoint slides, notes and articles in support of the book. It will also give lecturers direct access to the author. It will provide students with the skills to be able to converse knowledgeably with IT managers and be able to ask the right questions in order to make a decision about IT.

"Kessler shows how the merchants who were associated with the court - and not just elite thinkers and royal reformers - played a key role in reconceptualizing commerce as the credit-fueled private exchange necessary to sustain the social order. Deploying this modern conception of commerce in a variety of contexts, ranging from litigation over negotiable instruments to corporatist battles for status and jurisdiction, these merchants contributed (largely inadvertently and to their ultimate regret) to the demise of corporatism as both conceptual framework and institutional practice. In so doing, they helped bring about the social and political revolution of 1789." "A Revolution in Commerce provides new insights into the rise of commercial modernity by demonstrating the remarkable role played by the law in ideological and institutional transformation."--BOOK JACKET.
