Abstract:

This book explores what it might mean to take surrealism's critique of civilization seriously. Drawing on a remarkable range of sources, it first establishes surrealism as an important intellectual antecedent to the study of the human sciences today. It then makes a compelling and well-written argument for rethinking surrealism as a contemporary methodological resource for all those who still look to the human sciences not only as a way to interpret the world, but also to change it
