Product description

Review

“Sure to provoke controversy, The Philosopher and His Poor is a virtuoso performance. I can’t think of anyone who has pursued the populist premise―the intuition that in this or that situation the grounding of truth or value is to be located in those most dispossessed―with anything approaching Rancière’s degree of articulateness or philosophical sophistication. I predict that this book will become a landmark.”―Bruce Robbins, author of Feeling Global: Internationalism in Distress

“The Philosopher and His Poor is a remarkable work. Jacques Rancière demonstrates the recurrence throughout the history of western thought of a particular self-constituting move: the freedom and the right to think are premised upon a situating and excluding of those whose task is other than to think, what Rancière calls ‘the poor.’”―Derek Attridge, author of The Singularity of Literature
