Synopsis: Why Stoics Box presents another lively and engaging collection of essays by psychoanalyst and cultural theorist Jeanne Randolph. Often inspired by contemporary Canadian art work, Randolph's investigations into topics as diverse as Barbie™, boxing, surveillance, Joseph Conrad and Marshall McLuhan make for a provocative and entertaining read.The range and eclecticism of Randolph's thinking is reflected in her essay topics, which include: "Unsportsmanlike Conduct: Art and the Technological Ethos", "Hi-Tech Surveillance and Moral Imagination", and "Computing the Human."

About the Author: Jeanne Randolph, BA, MD, F.R.C.P.(C) is a prairie intellectual who spends her waking moments pondering technology, advertising, visual culture and ethics. A practicing psychiatrist, Randolph is also known as a performance artist whose extemporaneous soliloquies (on topics varying from cat curating to boxing to Barbie Dolls to Wittgenstein) have been performed in galleries and universities in Canada, England, Australia and Spain
