Living Together : Roland Barthes, the Individual and the Community Paperback / softback

Edited by Knut Stene-Johansen, Christian Refsum, Johan Schimanski

Part of the Culture & Theory series


Is it possible to create a community where everyone lives according to their own rhythm, and yet respects the individual rhythms of others?

This volume contains new essays which investigate and actualize the concepts that Roland Barthes discussed in his famous 1977 lecture series, How to Live Together, at the College de France.

The anthology presents original and thought-provoking approaches to questions of conviviality and idiorrhythmic life forms in literature, arts, and other media.

The essays are written by thirty-two distinguished scholars from seven countries, representing literary studies, philosophy, social sciences, theology, church history, psychoanalysis, art history, architecture, media studies, history of ideas, and biology.
