The French philosopher Jacques Ranciere is well known across the world for his groundbreaking contributions to aesthetic and political theory and for his radical rethinking of the question of equality. This much-needed new collection situates Ranciere's thought in a range of practical and theoretical contexts. These specially commissioned essays cover the complete history of Ranciere's work and reflect its interdisciplinary reach. They span his early historical research of the 1960s and '70s, his celebrated critique of pedagogy and his later political theory of dissensus and disagreement, as well as his ongoing analysis of literature and 'the aesthetic regime of art'. Ranciere's resistance to psychoanalytic thinking is also explored, as are his most recent publications on film and film theory. Contributors include Tom Conley, Carolyn Steedman, Genevieve Fraisse, Jean-Luc Nancy, Jeremy Lane, and many more. The book also includes a brand new interview with Ranciere, reflecting on his intellectual project and developing new lines of thought from his latest major work, Aisthesis. Ranciere Now will be essential reading for students and scholars across the humanities and social sciences; it will stimulate and inspire discussion of Ranciere s work for years to come.
