Product description

Review

In this bold and highly original book, Benjamin Noys rethinks the role of the negative in both ontology and political practice. His critical revaluations of familiar figures in recent European thought move in surprising new directions; they have forced me to reconsider much that I thought I knew. --Steven Shaviro, DeRoy Professor of English, Wayne State University

Benjamin Noys' brilliant and wide-ranging new book is a timely reminder that no revolutionary and egalitarian approach to politics and philosophy can afford to overlook the disruptive labour of the negative, or to neglect the active contribution that contradiction and antagonism make to a critique of actually-existing forms of domination on the one hand and a renewal of emancipatory agency on the other. --Peter Hallward, Professor of Modern European Philosophy, Middlesex University

About the Author

Benjamin Noys is Reader in English at the University of Chicester. He is the author of Georges Bataille: A Critical Introduction (2000) and The Culture of Death (2005).
