Interventions in Contemporary Thought : History, Politics, Aesthetics

Description

With a critical eye, Gabriel Rockhill guides you through complex debates in history, politics and aesthetics, giving you an overview of key issues and central figures, including Foucault, Derrida, Castoriadis, Badiou and Ranciere. Rockhill also questions the stereotypes of prominent figures and Intellectual movements. Instead of hiding behind these towering intellectuals, Rockhill stakes out positions in relationship to them and formulates precise arguments in favour of a new understanding of the historical relationship between art and politics.
