This novel is concerned with twenty-four hours in the life of a Spanish inhabitant of the Algerian sector of Paris. Sharing the only food his neighbors can afford, he has bought himself a beautiful cabbage. In his quarter the very air has become "cabbaged," every sense impregnated with this food of human privation and despair. The cabbage has absorbed the totality of the Algerian ghetto; it is the bread of those not deemed human enough to merit bread. And now, bearing his cabbage home, the narrator becomes involved in a murderous police raid in his street. Arrested with many others, he is thrown into a closed van and taken to a temporary concentration camp on the outskirts of Paris. There his entire reason, his every effort is bent on retrieving his cabbage from the hands of his tormentors. Finally in the dawn he emerges, still clutching his prize like the Grail--which like its owner has survived the night of torture and murder--to search out in triumph Adele, the Spanish mother, mistress, friend to all Spaniards in Paris, the whore forever reborn in purity and grace, life triumphant over the death of body and spirit.

What if there were no objective facts, no objective truth, only our belief in them? What if our consciousness itself is an unconscious invention, constructed out of logic and language? In this thought-provoking volume, Lynn Segal describes how the ideas of Heinz von Foerster compel us to explore the question "Do we discover the world or do we invent it?". He suggests that we must first know how we think before we can claim knowledge of the world. While Constructivism may seem relevant only to those in the cognitive sciences, it is, in fact, highly relevant to everyone. Paradoxically, grasping the limits of our own understanding can free us to live more creative and meaningful personal and professional lives.

From literary theory to social anthropology, the influence of Freud runs through every part of the human and social sciences. In The Lure of Dreams, Harvie Ferguson shows how Freud's writings and particulary The Interpretation of Dreams contribute, both in their content and in the baroque and dream-like forms in which they are cast, to our understanding of the character of modernity. This novel and stimulating approach to Freud and to the dilemmas of modernity and postmodernity will fascinate everyone with an interest in the development of the modern consciousness.
