An excellent introduction to Lyotard,
This review is from: Jean-François Lyotard (Routledge Critical Thinkers) (Paperback)
Having encountered some of Lyotard's thought in a haphazard way, I decided it was time to find out a bit more before tackling the man himself.
I've really enjoyed reading Malpas's book. In fact, I couldn't put it down. It's very well-written and presents Lyotard's ideas clearly and concisely. There are also very useful information boxes on related concepts and philosophers, which really help the reader to understand what's at stake.
Having read this book, I'm feeling inspired and looking forward to reading Lyotard. I highly recommend it.
