Editorial Reviews

Review

"Stiegler puts forward a compelling account of our dire situation in the West at the beginning of the twenty-first century and uncompromisingly insists on the need to embrace the difficult task of reclaiming the ideals of the critical Humanities while refusing to fall in the trap of demonizing technology."—Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory


"A hugely prolific writer, for more than fifteen years philosopher Bernard Stiegler has been seeking both to articulate existence itself, and to ameliorate its contemporary woes. In what is a vast undertaking, Stiegler moves from the originary emergence of humanity to the safeguarding of its future by way of multi-volume analyses that range widely between and across technology, political economy, art, palaeontology, television, democracy and industrial and hyperindustrial societies. Focusing on education and the changing role of the school in contemporary Western societies, Taking Care of Youth and the Generations continues this project, while at the same time going some way to explain the sense of urgency which characterizes much of Stiegler's previous writing."—Richard Iveson, Parallax

Good analysis of our present (modern) time. Some ideas are in line with the concept of liquid modernity (Z. Baumann).
