Jean-Francois Lyotard is famed for being one of the most acute observers on the cultural phenomenon of the postmodern, and his ideas resonate throughout the academic world, from philosophy and the social sciences through to literary, media, and cultural studies.
Drawing on the internationally-recognised expertise of a multidisciplinary team of contributors, the entries in The Lyotard Dictionary explain all of Lyotard's main concepts, contextualising these within his work as a whole and relating him to his contemporaries.
It forms an indispensable guide to this fascinating and hugely influential thinker, demonstrating his continuing significance as a cultural theorist.
