Jacques Rancière : education, truth, emancipation by Charles W Bingham( )

11 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner - AERA 2011 Outstanding Book Award Jacques Rancière: Education, Truth, Emancipation demonstrates the importance of Rancière's work for educational theory, and in turn, it shows just how central Rancière's educational thought is to his work in political theory and aesthetics. Charles Bingham and Gert Biesta illustrate brilliantly how philosophy can benefit from Rancière's particular way of thinking about education, and go on to offer their own provocative account of the relationship between education, truth, and emancipation. Including a new essay by Rancière himself
Mute speech : literature, critical theory, and politics by Jacques Rancière( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout his career, shaped by a notable collaboration with Louis Althusser, Jacques Rancière has continually unsettled political discourse, particularly by examining its relationship to aesthetics. Like Michel Foucault, he broke with his many of his predecessors to upend dominant twentieth-century historical narratives and critical theories. Often overlooked in the canon of his works, Mute Speech contains the critical seeds of Rancière's most provocative assertions, challenging the intellectual orthodoxy that had come to define the nature of art and representation. Arguing that

Recognition or disagreement : a critical encounter on the politics of freedom, equality, and identity by Axel Honneth( )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Axel Honneth is best known for his critique of modern society centered on a concept of recognition. Jacques Ranci re has advanced an influential theory of modern politics based on disagreement. Underpinning their thought is a concern for the logics of exclusion and domination that structure contemporary societies. In a rare dialogue, these two philosophers explore the affinities and tensions between their perspectives to provoke new ideas for social and political change. Honneth sees modern society as a field in which the logic of recognition provides individuals with increasing possibilities for freedom and is a constant catalyst for transformation. Ranci re sees the social as a policing order and the political as a force that must radically assert equality. Honneth claims Ranci re's conception of the political lies outside of actual historical societies and involves a problematic desire for egalitarianism. Ranci re argues that Honneth's theory of recognition relies on an overly substantial conception of identity and subjectivity. While impassioned, their exchange seeks to advance critical theory's political project by reconciling the rift between German and French post-Marxist traditions and proposing new frameworks for justice.--

The emancipated spectator by Jacques Rancière( Book )

58 editions published between 2008 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 846 WorldCat member 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?
Dissensus : on politics and aesthetics by Jacques Rancière( )

39 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 825 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket
The politics of aesthetics : the distribution of the sensible by Jacques Rancière( Book )

67 editions published between 2004 and 2019 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member 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."
The future of the image by Jacques Rancière( Book )

32 editions published between 2007 and 2019 in English and French and held by 685 WorldCat member 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
On the shores of politics by Jacques Rancière( Book )

54 editions published between 1990 and 2020 in 6 languages and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is frequently said that we are living through the end of politics, the end of social upheavals, the end of utopian folly. Consensual realism is the order of the day. But political realists, remarks Jacques Ranciere, are always several steps behind reality, and the only thing which may come to an end with their dominance is democracy. 'We could', he suggests, 'merely smile at the duplicity of the conclusion/suppression of politics which is simultaneously a suppression/conclusion of philosophy.' This is precisely the task which Ranciere undertakes in these subtle and perceptive essays. He argues persuasively that since Plato and Aristotle politics has always constructed itself as the art of ending politics, that realism is itself utopian, and that what has succeeded the polemical forms of class struggle is not the wisdom of a new millennium but the return of old fears, criminality and chaos. Whether he is discussing the confrontation between Mitterrand and Chirac, French working-class discourse after the 1830 revolution, or the ideology of recent student mobilizations, his aim is to restore philosophy to politics and give politics back its original and necessary meaning: the organization of dissent. --Product Description
Film fables by Jacques Rancière( Book )

29 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Film Fables traces the history of modern cinema. Encyclopedic in scope, Film Fables is that rare work that manages to combine extraordinary breadth and analysis with a lyricism that attests time and again to a love of cinema. Jacques Ranciere moves effortlessly from Eisenstein's and Murnau's transition from theater to film to Fritz Lang's confrontation with television; from the classical poetics of Mann's Westerns to Ray's romantic poetics of the image; from Rossellini's neo-realism to Deleuze's philosophy of the cinema and Marker's documentaries. Film Fables shows us how, between its images and its stories, the cinema tells the truth."--Jacket
The politics of literature by Jacques Rancière( Book )

33 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The politics of literature is not the same as the politics of writers and their commitments, nor does it concern the way writers represent social structures or political struggles. The expression 'politics of literature' assumes that there is a specific connection between politics as a form of collective practice and literature as a historically determined regime of the art of writing. It implies that literature intervenes in the parceling out of space and time, place and identity, speech and noise, the visible and the invisible, that is the arena of the political. This book seeks to show how the literary revolution shatters the perceptible order that underpinned traditional hierarchies, but also why literary equality foils any bid to place literature in the service of politics or in its place. It tests its hypotheses on certain writers: Flaubert, Tolstoy, Hugo, Mallarmé, Brecht and Borges, to name a few. It also shows the consequences of this for psychoanalytical interpretation, historical narration and philosophical conceptualization. -- Publisher description
Béla Tarr, the time after by Jacques Rancière( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Almanac of Fall (1984) to The Turin Horse (2011), renowned Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr has followed the collapse of the communist promise. The "time after" is not the uniform and morose time of those who no longer believe in anything. It is the time when we are less interested in histories and their successes or failures than we are in the delicate fabric of time from which they are carved. It is the time of pure material events against which belief will be measured for as long as life will sustain it. -- Provided by publisher
Hatred of democracy by Jacques Rancière( Book )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a compelling and timely analysis, Hatred of Democracy rediscovers the ever-new and subversive power of the democratic idea."--BOOK JACKET
The groove of the poem : reading Philippe Beck by Jacques Rancière( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How should one think this musical groove of the poem whose back and forth motion shuffles the material of ordinary language and revives the frozen speech of old chants? This question by renowned French thinker Jacques Rancière is the entry point for his earnest and careful reading of one of France's most singular and important contemporary poets. For Rancière, Philippe Beck sets himself the task of a poetry after poetry whereby Beck re-writes and transforms the poems of the past, reanimating faded genres, poetizing the prose of popular tales and even commentaries regarding poems. To read and follow this groove traced as such cannot simply be done by way of taking the poems as objects of study. It supposes a dialogue regarding what these poems attempt to do as well as an idea of a poetry which serves as their foundation. This book on Philippe Beck is thus also a book made with him. --

10 editions published between 1991 and 1999 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aesthetics and its discontents by Jacques Rancière( Book )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member 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
