The future of the image by Jacques Rancière ( Book )
22 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 539 libraries worldwide
"In The Future of the Image, Jacques Ranciere develops a new concept of the image in contemporary art and film, showing how art and politics have always been intrinsically intertwined. Covering a range of art movements, filmmakers such as Godard and Bresson, and thinkers such as Foucault, Deleuze, Adorno, Barthes, Lyotard and Greenberg, Ranciere shows that contemporary theorists of the image are suffering from religious tendencies."--BOOK JACKET.
The politics of aesthetics : the distribution of the sensible by Jacques Rancière ( Book )
40 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 483 libraries worldwide
"The Politics of Aesthetics rethinks the relationship between art and politics outside of the models established by the Marxist tradition, the Frankfurt School, and the more recent contributions made by the post-structuralists. Reclaiming aesthetics from the narrow confines it is often reduced to, Jacques Ranciere reveals its intrinsic link to politics by analyzing what they both have in common: the delimitation of the visible and the invisible, the audible and the inaudible, the thinkable and the unthinkable, the possible and the impossible." "Presented as a series of interlinked interviews, The Politics of Aesthetics provides the most comprehensive introduction to Ranciere's work to date. Ranging across the history of art and politics from the Greek polis to the aesthetic revolution of the modern age, it includes incisive analyses of the uses and abuses of the concept of modernity, the relationship between art and mechanical reproduction, the logic of facts and fiction in history, the positive contradiction at work in modern literature, and the notion of politicized art."--BOOK JACKET.

10 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in French and English and held by 379 libraries worldwide
Dans les années 20, on vit dans le cinéma le langage nouveau des idées devenues sensibles qui révoquait le vieil art des histoires et des personnages. Mais il allait aussi restaurer les intrigues, les types et les genres que d'autres arts avaient fait voler en éclats. J. Rancière analyse les formes de ce conflit entre deux poétiques qui font l'âme du cinéma.
The emancipated spectator by Jacques Rancière ( Book )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 374 libraries worldwide
In this title, the foremost philosopher of art argues for a new politics of seeing. The role of the viewer in art and film theory revolves around a theatrical concept of the spectacle. The masses subjected to the society of spectacle have traditionally been seen as aesthetically and politically passive - in response, both artists and thinkers have sought to transform the spectator into an active agent and the spectacle into a performance. In this follow-up to the acclaimed "The Future of the Image", Ranciere takes a radically different approach to this attempted emancipation. Beginning by asking exactly what we mean by political art or the politics of art, he goes on to look at what the tradition of critical art, and the desire to insert art into life, has achieved. Has the militant critique of the consumption of images and commodities become, instead, a melancholic affirmation of their omnipotence?

Aesthetics and its discontents by Jacques Rancière ( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in French and English and held by 340 libraries worldwide
Only yesterday aesthetics stood accused of concealing cultural games of social distinction. Now it is considered a parasitic discourse from which artistic practices must be freed. But aesthetics is not a discourse. It is an historical regime for the identification of art. This regime is paradoxical, because it founds the autonomy of art only at the price of suppressing the boundaries separating its practices and its objects from those of everyday life and of making free aesthetic play into the promise of a new revolution. Aesthetics is not a politics by accident but in essence. But this politics operates in the unresolved tension between two opposed forms of politics: the first consists in transforming art into forms of collective life, the second in preserving from all forms of militant or commercial compromise the autonomy that makes it a promise of emancipation. This constitutive tension sheds light on the paradoxes and transformations of critical art. It also makes it possible to understand why today's calls to free art from aesthetics are misguided and lead to a smothering of both aesthetics and politics in ethics.

The aesthetic unconscious by Jacques Rancière ( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 265 libraries worldwide
This book is not concerned with the use of Freudian concepts for the interpretation of literary and artistic works. Rather, it is concerned with why this interpretation plays such an important role in demonstrating the contemporary relevance of psychoanalytic concepts. In order for Freud to use the Oedipus complex as a means for the interpretation of texts, it was necessary first of all for a particular notion of Oedipus, belonging to the Romantic reinvention of Greek antiquity, to have produced a certain idea of the power of the thought that does not think, and the power of the speech that remains silent. From this it does not follow that the Freudian unconscious was already prefigured by the aesthetic unconscious. Freud's "aesthetic" analyses reveal instead a tension between the two forms of unconscious. --From publisher's description.
La leçon d'Althusser by Jacques Rancière ( Book )
12 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 234 libraries worldwide
Althusser's Lesson represents the foundations of Jacques Rancire's theoretical project. It marks the moment at which he emerges from the tutelage of his mentor, Louis Althusser, and begins to outline the themes he will go on to develop in his later writings. Here Rancire is already working out a non-economic and non-Marxist understanding of politics. The events of May 1968 confronted Althusser's version of a Marxism of order with one of subversion that in one fell swoop rendered Althusser's thought outdated. Yet, when Althusser finally broke his silence on this issue, with the publication in 1.
Dissensus : on politics and aesthetics by Jacques Rancière ( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 218 libraries worldwide
"Dissensus comprises several of Ranciere's recent contributions to problems of art and politics. On issues such as the specificity of aesthetic experience, the politics of art, democracy and human rights, Ranciere provides novel analyses that yield nothing to the prevailing liberal consensus. Along the way, he engages in some unerring critiques of major contemporary thinkers - Giorgio Agamben, Gilles Deleuze, Jacques Derrida, Antonio Negri. Moreover, insightful essays about recent phenomena debunk notions that political insecurity today requires waging war on 'archaic' anti-democratic elements, or that the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks constitute a rupture in the symbolic order."--BOOK JACKET.
La parole muette : essai sur les contradictions de la littérature by Jacques Rancière ( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 197 libraries worldwide
Jacques Rancière interroge ici le projet qui sous-tend l'émergence de la "littérature" par opposition à la définition classique et normative des belles-lettres. Avec cet avènement qui coïncide peu ou prou avec le romantisme, se défont les privilèges de la représentation: au primat de la fiction s'oppose le primat du langage, à la hiérarchie des genres, régale dignité des sujets représentés, à la parole en acte, le modèle de l'écriture. Se démarquant à la fois de la critique de Sartre qui récuse les jeux formels avec le langage au nom de rengagement, et des lectures de Blanchot qui souscrit à une vision quasi mystique de la littérature, Jacques Rancière propose une interprétation nouvelle de cette mutation. La contradiction qui traverse la "littérature" rencontre en effet le défi d'une parole démocratique qui s'émancipe des règles codifiant son usage. A la fois tentation aristocratique et vision d'une communauté à venir, la littérature est cette contradiction, cette "parole muette"
