The Persistence of the Negative : A Critique of Contemporary Continental Theory, Paperback Book

The Persistence of the Negative : A Critique of Contemporary Continental Theory Paperback

Description

Through a series of incisive readings of leading theoretical figures of affirmationism -- Jacques Derrida, Gilles Deleuze, Bruno Latour, Antonio Negri and Alain Badiou -- Benjamin Noys contests the tendency of recent theory to rely on affirmation, and especially an affirmative thinking of resistance.

He reveals a profound current of negativity that allows theory to return to its political calling.
