Moments Politiques PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Moments Politiques free pdf Moments Politiques collects the short essays and interviews of Jacques Ranciere from a span of 30 years, 1977 to 2007. Sparked by specific events in European and world news as they were happening, these pieces seek to call into question the inevitability we see in the world and undermine the legitimacy of what we think is possible. By examining the issues in which political moments arise, such as 9/11, immigration laws and even the philosophy of Foucault, Ranciere opens us up to the possibility of a different world.

About Jacques Ranciere

Born in 1940 in Algiers, JACQUES RANCIERE is one of the most important figures in contemporary philosophy. He studied at the Ecole Normale SupErieure in Paris under the tutelage of philosopher Louis Althusser, but broke with his mentor after the May 1968 uprisings. It was during this time that RanciEre began to formulate his theory of radical equality, and his critiques of elitism in the Western philosophical tradition. He is currently Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII and conducts a summer seminar at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. His many books include "The Politics of Aesthetics," "The Future of the Image," "Hatred of Democracy," and "The Emancipated Spectator." As our universities more and more come to resemble corporations, with our "public intellectuals" as sentries lined up to defend the status quo, RanciEre stands out for his belief that intelligence and resistance are inextricably linked. MARY FOSTER's previous translation for Seven Stories Press was "Order Without Power," a collection of essays by Normand Baillergeon.
