Product description

Review

"Stiegler′s title is bold, but make no mistake: this book really is about what makes life worth living. We can neglect this dimension disastrously or we can act to sustain it. A survival manual for the twenty–first century, this is also contemporary philosophy as a call to arms."
Martin Crowley, University of Cambridge

"This work, an excellent primer on the latest phase of Stiegler s project and an excellent introduction to his writing, attempts to turn a thinking of the pharmakon from its resonance as poison to that of a cure to the pan–toxicity he finds in the robo–interiorities of the present and their link to eco–catastrophic outcomes.  What this book also displays is that Stiegler has long been the most productive critical reader of Derrida′s legacy today and this at a time when anything like official ′deconstruction′ gasps for relevance. "
Tom Cohen, State University of New York at Albany
