Technics and time by Bernard Stiegler( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the beginning of Western philosophy, Aristotle contrasted made objects, which did not have the source of their own production within themselves, with beings formed by nature. This distinction persisted until Marx, who conceived of the possibility of an evolution of the technical object. This philosophy developed while industrialisation was in the process of overthrowing the contemporary order of social organisation, which highlighted technology's new place in philosophical enquiry. Bernard Stiegler goes back to the beginning of Western philosophy and revises the Aristotelian assessment, developing a complex argument whereby the technical object can be seen as having an essential, distinctive temporality and dynamic of its own. The author engages the ideas of Rousseau, Husserl, and Heidegger, the paleo-ontologist Leroi-Gourhan, the anthropologists Vernant and Detienne, the sociologists Weber and Habermas, and the systems analysts Maturana and Varela

For a new critique of political economy by Bernard Stiegler( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and French and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The catastrophic economic, social and political crisis of our time calls for a new and original critique of political economy - a rethinking of Marx's project in the very different conditions of twenty-first century capitalism. Stiegler argues that today the proletarian must be reconceptualized as the economic agent whose knowledge and memory are confiscated by machines. This new sense of the term proletarian is best understood by reference to Plato's critique of exteriorized memory. By bringing together Plato and Marx, Stiegler can show how a generalized proletarianization now encompasses not only the muscular system, as Marx saw it, but also the nervous system of the so-called creative workers in the information industries. The proletarians of the former are deprived of their practical know-how, whereas the latter are shorn of their theoretical practice, and both suffer from a confiscation of the very possibility of a genuine art of living. But the mechanisms at work in this new and accentuated form of proletarianization are the very mechanisms that may spur a reversal of the process. Such a reversal would imply a crucial distinction between one's life work, originating in otium (leisure devoted to the techniques of the self), and the job, consisting in a negotium (the negotiation and calculation, increasingly restricted to short-term expectations), leading to the necessity of a new conception of economic value. -- Publisher description
Acting out by Bernard Stiegler( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acting Out is the first appearance in English of two short books published by Bernard Stiegler in 2003. In How I Became a Philosopher, he outlines his transformation during a five-year period of incarceration for armed robbery. Isolated from what had been his world, Stiegler began to conduct a kind of experiment in phenomenological research. Inspired by the Greek stoic Epictetus, Stiegler began to read, write, and discover his vocation, eventually studying philosophy in correspondence with Gerard Granel who was an important influence on a number of French philosophers, including Jacques Derrida, who was later Stiegler's teacher." "The second book, To Love, To Love Me, To Love Us, is a powerful distillation of Stiegler's analysis of the contemporary world. He maintains that a growing loss of a sense of individual and collective existence leads to a decreased ability to love oneself, and, by extension, others."--Jacket
States of shock : stupidity and knowledge in the twenty-first century by Bernard Stiegler( Book )

27 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and French and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1944 Horkheimer and Adorno warned that industrial society turns reason into rationalization, and Polanyi warned of the dangers of the self-regulating market, but today, argues Stiegler, this regression of reason has led to societies dominated by unreason, stupidity and madness. However, philosophy in the second half of the twentieth century abandoned the critique of political economy, and poststructuralism left its heirs helpless and disarmed in face of the reign of stupidity and an economic crisis of global proportions. New theories and concepts are required today to think through these issues. The thinkers of poststructuralism Lyotard, Deleuze, Derrida must be re-read, as must the sources of their thought, Hegel and Marx. But we must also take account of Naomi Klein's critique of Milton Friedman and the Chicago School and her account of the shock doctrine. In fact, argues Stiegler, a permanent state of shock has prevailed since the beginning of the industrial revolution, intensified by the creative destruction brought about by the consumerist model. The result has been a capitalism that destroys desire and reason and in which every institution is undermined, above all those institutions that are the products par excellence of the Enlightenment the education system and universities. Through a powerful critique of thinkers from Marx to Derrida, Stiegler develops new conceptual weapons to fight this destruction. He argues that schools and universities must themselves be transformed: new educational institutions must be developed both to take account of the dangers of digitization and the internet and to enable us to take advantage of the new opportunities they make available.--
The Ister( Visual )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1942 Martin Heidegger delivered a series of lectures on Friedrich Hölderlin's poem The Ister, lectures in which he addressed the political, cultural and military chaos facing Germany at that time. In this film, on a journey from the mouth of the Danube in Romania to its source in the Black Forest, three French philosophers, Bernard Stiegler, Jean-Luc Nancy, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, and the German filmmaker Hans-Jürgen Syberberg, ponder Heidegger's philosophical ideas about technology, time, mortality, memory and history, and consider how they relate to today's Europe
What makes life worth living : on pharmacology by Bernard Stiegler( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the aftermath of the First World War, the poet Paul Valéry wrote of a "crisis of spirit", brought about by the instrumentalization of knowledge and the destructive subordination of culture to profit. Recent events demonstrate all too clearly that the stock of mind, or spirit, continues to fall. The economy is toxically organized around the pursuit of short-term gain, supported by an infantilizing, dumbed-down media. Advertising technologies make relentless demands on our attention, reducing us to idiotic beasts, no longer capable of living. Spiralling rates of mental illness show that the fragile life of the mind is at breaking point. Underlying these multiple symptoms is consumer capitalism, which systematically immiserates those whom it purports to liberate. Returning to Marxʹs theory, Stiegler argues that consumerism marks a new stage in the history of proletarianization. It is no longer just labour that is exploited, pushed below the limits of subsistence, but the desire that is characteristic of human spirit. The cure to this malaise is to be found in what Stiegler calls a "pharmacology of the spirit". Here, pharmacology has nothing to do with the chemical supplements developed by the pharmaceutical industry. The pharmakon, defined as both cure and poison, refers to the technical objects through which we open ourselves to new futures, and thereby create the spirit that makes us human. By reference to a range of figures, from Socrates, Simondon and Derrida to the child psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott, Stiegler shows that technics are both the cause of our suffering and also what makes life worth living. -- Publisher description

L'école, le numérique et la société qui vient by Denis Kambouchner( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in French and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Que reste-t-il de la querelle scolaire et du vieux clivage entre "pédagogues" et "républicains"? Partis de convictions très divergentes, Denis Kambouchner et Philippe Meirieu font aujourd'hui, avec Bernard Stiegler, le constat que les termes dans lesquels se posa cette querelle ont perdu de leur acuité dans le contexte de la vaste mutation engendrée par les nouvelles technologies. Ces nouvelles technologies créent les conditions d'une démocratisation inespérée de l'accès au savoir ; mais en même temps, associées à un consumérisme effréné et à un marketing intrusif, elles apparaissent comme les vecteurs d'un système toujours plus perfectionné de captation des esprits. Une telle évolution met à mal les équilibres fondamentaux de l'éducation scolaire. Surtout, l'école n'est pas armée pour penser cette mutation [Extrait de la 4e de couverture]

Uncontrollable societies of disaffected individuals by Bernard Stiegler( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and French and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Max Weber argued that the development of capitalism would lead to the progressive rationalization and disenchantment of society: today this process is reaching its endpoint and capitalism is collapsing into a disturbing kind of irrationality. It engenders spiritual misery -- a paralysis of the function of the human mind or spirit -- where reason disappears as a motive of hope, a "kingdom of ends" in Kantʹs sense. Absolute disenchantment afflicts all those who no longer have anything to expect from the development of hyper-industrial society. Those who are desperate become "desperados", and they are becoming more and more numerous. No longer having anything to expect means, at the same time, no longer having anything to fear. And the proliferating repressive mechanisms that are supposed to cope with the effects of this loss of authority turn out to be less and less effective. For such measures engender more and more the opposite of that for which they were intended, but in extreme and totally irrational, unpredictable forms.-- Back cover

The decadence of industrial democracies by Bernard Stiegler( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bernard Stiegler is one of the most original philosophers writing today about new technologies and their implications for social, political and personal life. Drawing on sources ranging from Plato and Marx to Freud, Heidegger and Derrida, he develops a highly original account of technology as grammatology, as a technics of writing that constitutes our experience of time, memory and desire, even of life itself. Society and our place within it are shaped by technical reproduction which can both expand and restrict the horizons and possibilities of human agency and experience. In the three volumes of Disbelief and Discredit Stiegler argues that this process of technical reproduction has become dangerously divorced from its role in the constitution of human experience. Radically challenging the optimistic view of new technologies as facilitators of learning and progress, he argues new marketing techniques shortcircuit thought and disenfranchise consumers, programming them to seek short-term gratification. These practices of "libidinal economics" have profound consequences for nature of human desire and they underpin the social and psychological malaise of contemporaty industrial society. In this opening volume Stiegler argues that the industrial model implemented since the beginning of the twentieth century has become obsolete, leading capitalist democracies to an impasse. A sign of this impasse and of the decadence to which it leads is the banalization of consumers who become ensnared in a perpetual cycle of consumption. This is the new proletarianization of the technologically infused, hyper-industrial capitalism of today. It produces a society cut off from its past and its future, stultifying human development and turning democracy into a farce in which disbelief and discredit inevitably arise. -- Publisher description
