The postmodern condition : a report on knowledge by Jean-François Lyotard( Book )

75 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many definitions of postmodernism focus on its nature as the aftermath of the modern industrial age when technology developed dynamically. In The Postmodern Condition Jean-Francois Lyotard extends that analysis to postmodernism by looking at the status uf science, technology, and the arts, the significance of technocracy, and the way the flow of information and knowledge are controlled in the Western world. Lyotard emphasized language; the world of postmodern knowledge can be represented as a game of language where speaking is participation in the game whose goal is the creation of new and ever-changing social linkages
The differend : phrases in dispute by Jean-François Lyotard( Book )

77 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Differend, Lyotard subjects to scrutiny- from the particular perspective of his notion of 'differend' (difference in the sense of dispute)- the turn of all Western philosophies toward language; the decline of metaphysics; the present intellectual retreat of Marxism; the hopes raised and mostly dashed, by theory; and the growing political despair. Taking his point of departure in an analysis of what Auschwitz meant philosophically, Lyotard attempts to sketch out modes of thought for our present
Discourse, figure by Jean-François Lyotard( Book )

81 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Provoked in part by Lacan's influential seminars in Paris, Discourse, Figure distinguishes between the meaningfulness of linguistic signs and the meaningfulness of plastic arts such as painting and sculpture. Lyotard argues that because rational thought is discursive and works of art are inherently opaque signs, certain aspects of artistic meaning such as symbols and the pictorial richness of painting will always be beyond reason's grasp."--Page [2] of jacket

Libidinal economy by Jean-François Lyotard( Book )

50 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a philosophical development of the Freudian concept of 'libidinal economy' and one of Lyotard's most important works. In part a response to Deleuze and Guattari's Anti-Oedipus, it can also be seen as culminating a line of modern thought ranging from de Sade, Nietzsche and Bataille, to Deleuze, Klossowski, Irigaray and Cixous. It is thus important in the context of modern French philosophy, and also in its relevance to contemporary thinking on a broad range of questions, including sexual politics, semiotics and literary studies."--Jacket

Postmodern fables by Jean-François Lyotard( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This latest offering from one of the founding figures of postmodernism is a collection of fifteen "fables" that ask, in the words of Jean-Francois Lyotard, "how to live, and why?" Here, Lyotard provides a mixture of anarchistic irreverence and sober philosophical reflection on a wide range of topics with attention to issues of justice and ethics, aesthetics, and judgment. In sections titled "Verbiages," "System Fantasies," "Concealments," and "Crypts," Lyotard unravels and reconfigures idealist notions of subjects as various and fascinating as the French Revolution, the Holocaust, the reception of French theory in the Anglo-American world, the events of May 1968, the Gulf War, academic travelers as intellectual tourists, the collapse of communism, and his own work in the context of others'
The confession of Augustine by Jean-François Lyotard( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lyotard approaches his subject by returning to his earliest phenomenological training, rearticulating Augustine's sensory universe from a vantage point imaginarily inside the confessant's world, a vantage point that reveals the intense point of conjuncture between the sensual and the spiritual, the erotic world and the mystical, being and appearance, sin and salvation. Lyotard reveals the very origins of phenomenology in Augustine's narrative, and in so doing also shows the origins of semiotics to lie there (in the explication of the Augustinian heavens as skin, as veil, as vellum)."

Why philosophize? by Jean-François Lyotard( Book )

30 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why Philosophize? is a series of lectures given by Jean-Francois Lyotard to students at the Sorbonne embarking on their university studies. The circumstances obliged him to be both clear and concise: at the same time, his lectures offer a profound and far-reaching meditation on how essential it is to philosophize in a world where philosophy often seems irrelevant, outdated, or inconclusive. Lyotard begins by drawing on Plato, Proust and Lacan to show that philosophy is a never-ending desire--for wisdom, for the 'other'. In the second lecture he draws on Heraclitus and Hegel to explore the close relation between philosophy and history: the same restlessness, the same longing for a precarious unity, drives both. In his third lecture, Lyotard examines how philosophy is a form of speech that plays on the borders of what can be communicated directly. Finally, he turns to Marx, exploring the extent to which philosophy can be a transformative force within the world. These wonderfully accessible lectures will attract a wide readership, since, as Lyotard says, 'How can one not philosophize?' They are also an excellent introduction to Lyotard's thought."--Page 4 of cover
Les transformateurs Duchamp by Jean-François Lyotard( Book )

28 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the third of a series of five volumes that exhaustively brings together the writings of JeanFrançois Lyotard (19241998) on contemporary art and artists. This collection of essays, written between 1974 and 1977 in the middle of the time of Duchamp's rediscovery in France, was published by Editions Galilée (Paris) in 1977 and in English translation by The Lapis Press (Los Angeles) in 1990. This volume republishes the two versions face to face, including the drawings, diagrams and images of the original edition. Herman Parret presents the text in a substantial introduction and Dalia Judovitz situates it in the more general framework of Lyotardian philosophical reflection. Duchamp's 'TRANS/formers' reconstructs the 'Large glass and given', Duchamp's two major works that glorify the body in its topological conceptuality

Introducing Lyotard : art and politics by Bill Readings( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first truly introductory text on Lyotard, this book situates Lyotard's interventions in the postmodern debate in the wider context of his rethinking of the politics of representation. Bill Readings examines Lyotard's relationship to structuralism, Marxism and semiotics, and contrasts his work with the literary deconstruction of Paul de Man; he positions Lyotard's work so as to draw out the implications of poststructurlaism's attention to difference in reading. Lyotard's willingness to question the political and examine the relationship between art and politics is shown to undermine the charge that deconstruction abdicates political and social articulation. -- Provided by publisher
