- Not available
One of the rising stars of US critical theory, Bruno Bosteels discusses the new currents of thought represented by figures such as Badiou, Ranciere and A iA ek, who are spearheading the recent revival of interest in communism. Bosteels examines this resurgence of communist thought through the prism of speculative leftismA"-an incapacity to move beyond lofty abstractions and thoroughly rethink the categories of masses, classes and state. Debating those questions with writers including Roberto Esposito and Alberto Moreiras, Bosteels also provides a vital account of the work of the Bolivian Vice President and thinker Alvaro Garcia Linera.
