Jacques Ranciere by Jean-Philippe Deranty


Jacques Ranciere by Jean-Philippe Deranty

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


An accessible but sophisticated introduction to the extraordinarily rich conceptual apparatus of Ranciere. - Andrew Schaap, University of Exeter

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
