Jacques Ranciere Key Concepts by Jean-Philippe Deranty

Although relatively unknown a decade ago, the work of Jacques Rancière is fast becoming central to the humanities and social sciences. His thinking brings a fresh, innovative approach to many fields, notably the study of work, education, politics, literature, film and art, as well as philosophy. This collection is the first full-length introduction to Rancière's work and covers the full range of his contribution to contemporary thought, presenting in clear, succinct chapters the key concepts Rancière has developed in his writings over the past forty years. Students new to Rancière will find this work an ideal introduction to this major thinker and for readers already familiar with Rancière, the in-depth analysis of each key concept, written by leading scholars, should provide an ideal reference.
