Editorial Reviews

Review

Title mention in Times Higher Education, January 2010

Rewarding in its scholarly engagemenet with Derrida, Arendt, Lyotard et al ... [Rancière] has a certain sardonic precision.
(The Guardian)

"Steven Corcoran has provided a timely and coherently organized collection of Rancière's short writings, one that can stand as a solid introduction to the author's thought...There is a distinct shift of emphasis that occurs in Rancière's writings around the late 1990's, however, and the task of a good collection would be to capture both periods and the thematic interaction between them. The writings gathered here, which date from 1996 to 2004, perform both tasks admirably...For those who seek to get a sense of both the richness and the breadth of the work of one of the most significant thinkers of our time, Dissensus provides a valuable resource. I can think of no better starting point than this collection."
-Todd May, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews


An accessible introduction to Rancière's thought and an essential collection of his essays.

A wonderful introduction to Ranciere. All of the essays are great, and "Ten Theses on the Political" is worth the price alone. Couldn't ask for a better survey of his thought. It's also a very attractive book (not that that matters).

Great book, a must-read for anyone interested in contemporary philosophy and politics. The translation manages to render the subtleties of Ranciere's original philosophical language.

Democracy is merely a habit of letting voters throw the bums out or a form of submission to fall into all alike hellfire in a world that turns those who lost the battle for heaven into the demons sharing a lake of fire. Money that fails to exist does not talk, it swears.
