Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The Lyotard Reader and Guide" is a one-stop companion to Lyotard's thought. It covers the full range of his works, from his three main books ( "Discours, figure"; "Libidinal Economy"; and "The Differend") and up to his influential essays in "The Inhuman" and "Postmodern Fables," The readings are organized into sections on philosophy, politics, art, and literature. Several have never before been translated into English. Detailed introductions to each section by two leading Lyotard scholars explain the philosopher's key ideas and provide crucial social, political, aesthetic, and philosophical context. As a sourcebook and guide, this is the most up-to-date and comprehensive volume on Lyotard. It is indispensable to students and scholars in philosophy, literature, the arts, and politics.
