What People are Saying About This

Slavoj Zizek

In our time of the disorientation of the left, his writings offer one of the few conceptualizations of how we are to continue to resist.

Liam Gillick

In the face of impossible attempts to proceed with progressive ideas within the terms of postmodernist discourse, Rancière shows a way out of the malaise.

Kristin Ross

His art lies in the rigor of his argument – its careful, precise unfolding –
and at the same time not treating his reader, whether university professor or unemployed actress, as an imbecile.
