T1 Dissensus : on politics and aesthetics A1 Rancière, Jacques., Corcoran, Steve., PB Continuum PP London; New York YR 2010 SN 9781847064455 1847064450 AB "Dissensus comprises several of Ranciere's recent contributions to problems of art and politics. On issues such as the specificity of aesthetic experience, the politics of art, democracy and human rights, Ranciere provides novel analyses that yield nothing to the prevailing liberal consensus. Along the way, he engages in some unerring critiques of major contemporary thinkers - Giorgio Agamben, Gilles Deleuze, Jacques Derrida, Antonio Negri. Moreover, insightful essays about recent phenomena debunk notions that political insecurity today requires waging war on 'archaic' anti-democratic elements, or that the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks constitute a rupture in the symbolic order."--BOOK JACKET.
