Interventions in Contemporary Thought

History, Politics, Aesthetics

First Edition

Gabriel Rockhill

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Remaps the topography of contemporary philosophy, drawing on extensive knowledge of untranslated material and marginalised figures
  • Critically reconsiders the philosophy of difference through the work of thinkers such as Badiou, Bourdieu, Castoriadis, Fabiani, Laruelle, Pinto and Rancière
  • Develops alternative historical models, beyond the paradigms found in Marcuse, Sartre, Barthes and Rancière, to rethink the relationship between art and politics
