From the Publisher"Bernard Stiegler grasps the décadence of our democracies. New industrial (informational) technologies, harnessed by out-of-control capitalism destroy collective memory: creating a crisis of belief, a disintegration of symbolic (and financial) credit. Yet, there is exciting political potential for emerging socio-technical formations. Stiegler is our twenty-first century public intellectual."
Scott Lash, Goldsmiths College
"The Decadence of Industrial Democracies extends Bernard Stieglers relentless remapping of hyperindustrial modernity. It is a key text for anyone who wishes to understand the link between today's telecratic politics of memory and whatever transformations stand beyond it. It demonstrates that Stiegler is not just the radical thinker of technics but also the genealogist of cognitive morals."
Tom Cohen, State University of New York at Albany
