About this title

Synopsis:

"The Lyotard Reader" is a collection of Jean-Francois Lyotard's most important papers to date. While they are all written from within philosophy, they seek to address subjects as wide-ranging as film, painting, psychoanalysis, Judaism and politics. The originality of Lyotard's work means that it cannot be readily situated within any one philosophical tradition. Instead he returns philosophy itself to debates across a range of areas and, in so doing, redefines the philosophical enterprise. A number of chapters in "The Lyotard Reader" appear for the first time in English. This is a comprehensive collection of Lyotard's work, which has influenced debates on the Enlightenment, on modernity, on postmodernity, on the transmission of information, on literary theory and on philosophy.
