Understanding Movements in Modern Thought #3: Understanding Poststructuralism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Understanding Poststructuralism is a lucid guide to some of the most exciting and controversial ideas in contemporary thought. James Williams examines the key works of the movement's most important theorists - Foucault, Derrida, Kristeva, Lyotard, and Deleuze - providing detailed summaries of their main points and a critical analysis of their core arguments. In jargon-free prose, he explains such ideas as deconstruction, libidinal economics, genealogy, and transcendental empiricism in terms of their value to critical thinking and to contemporary issues. Although a sympathetic interpreter of poststructuralism, Williams does not dismiss the criticism of analytic philosophers but provides a much-needed balanced assessment of this movement.

About the Author

James Williams is reader in philosophy, University of Dundee, and the author of numerous books, including Gilles Deleuze's Difference and Repetition: A Critical Reader and Guide and Lyotard: Thinking the Political.
