The differend : phrases in dispute by Jean-François Lyotard ( Book )
19 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 678 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 )
11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 562 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."--P. [2] of jacket

Postmodern fables by Jean-François Lyotard ( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 522 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'

41 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in French and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Libidinal economy by Jean-François Lyotard ( Book )
13 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 504 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

The politics of Jean-François Lyotard by Chris Rojek ( )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jean-Francois Lyotard is widely considered to be the father of postmodernism and his ideas have influenced research and debate across many fields. This edited collection of essays is the first sociological assessment of his work. It brings together leading sociologists representing a wide range of interdisciplinary interests to tackle many of the questions currently being asked about this controversial figure. Lyotard's ideas about culture and ethics raise important questions but it is less clear whether he provides tenable solutions. The Politics of Jean-Francois Lyotard is a significant addition to the material currently available on this highly influential figure and will therefore be essential reading for academics and researchers in the fields of philosophy, sociology and cultural studies
