  JEAN-FRANCOIS LYOTARD ( – ) THE METANARRATIVE. The Postmodern Condition: A Report on Knowledge () A brief book, a small study, “an occasional one” that Lyotard himself did not consider either important or a work of philosophy, The Postmodern Condition: A Report on Knowledge () came to be his best-known and most referenced book for those seeking to “define” . Jean-François Lyotard is considered the pre-eminent non-Marxist philosopher of ‘the postmodern condition’ (sometimes referred to as ‘postmodernity’).

Book Description. Jean-François Lyotard is one of the most celebrated proponents of what has become known as the 'postmodern'. More than almost any other contemporary theorist, he has explored the relations between knowledge, art, politics and history, in ways that offer radical new possibilities for thinking about modern culture. Jean-François Lyotard's importance to modern philosophy cannot be overstated. Often associated with the concept of postmodernism, Lyotard was a central figure in the 'theory debates' during the s, s, and s. His writings across the disciplines strongly influenced the current shape of con.

  But, like most of Lyotard’s work, this book on the sublime has a long gestation. Lessons on the Analytic of the Sublime was proceeded by several earlier books and by shattering political events that cast a shadow over much of Lyotard’s writing through the s. The uprising of May seemed so significant at the time but, in retrospect. The arrival of works by Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, Jean-François Lyotard, Jean Baudrillard, Gilles Deleuze, and Félix Guattari on American shores in the late s and s caused a sensation. French Theory is the first comprehensive account of the American fortunes of these unlikely philosophical celebrities. Reveling in the gossipy.
