Jacques Ranciere and the Contemporary Scene

The Philosophy of Radical Equality

Jacques Ranciere and the Contemporary Scene by Jean-Philippe Deranty
Not available
This book forms the first critical
study of Jacques Rancière's impact and contribution to contemporary theoretical
and interdisciplinary studies. It showcases the work of leading scholars in
fields such as political theory, history and aesthetic theory; each of whom are
uniquely situated to engage with the novelty of Rancière's thinking within
their respective fields.
 
Each of the essays provides an
investigation into the critical stance Rancière takes towards his
contemporaries, concentrating on the versatile application of his thought to
diverse fields of study (including, political and education theory, cinema
studies, literary and aesthetic theory, and historical studies). The aim of
this collection is to use the critical interventions Rancière's writing makes
on current topics and themes as a way of offering new critical perspectives on
his thought. Wielding their individual expertise, each contributor assesses his
perspectives and positions on thinkers and topics of contemporary importance.
The edition includes a new essay by Jacques Rancière, which charts the
different problems and motivations that have shaped his work.
