The Persistence of the Negative

A Critique of Contemporary Continental Theory

eBook - 2010
Rate this:
Through a series of incisive readings of leading theoretical figures of affirmationism - Jacques Derrida, Gilles Deleuze, Bruno Latour, Antonio Negri and Alain Badiou - Benjamin Noys contests the tendency of recent theory to rely on affirmation, and especially an affirmative thinking of resistance. He reveals a profound current of negativity that allows theory to return to its political calling.
