Stiegler and Technics

Bernard Stiegler brings together key concepts from Plato, Freud, Derrida and Simondon to argue that the human is invented through technics rather than a product of purely biological evolution. This collection of essays covers all aspects of Stiegler's work, from poststructuralism, anthropology and psychoanalysis to his work on the politics of memory, libidinal economy, technoscience and aesthetics. Contributors include Stephen Barker, University of California Irvine and translator of Steigler Richard Beardsworth, American University of Paris and translator of Stiegler Miguel de Beistegui, University of Warwick Marc Crepon, Ecole normale superieure and co-founder of Stiegler's think tank, Ars Industrialis Daniel Ross, co-director of The Ister, the award-winning film on Heidegger, and translator of Stiegler Hugh J. Silverman, Stony Brook University.
