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

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

Benjamin Noys


A compelling critique of up to date continental conception. via a chain of incisive readings of best theoretical figures of affirmationism - Jacques Derrida, Gilles Deleuze, Bruno Latour, Antonio Negri and Alain Badiou - Benjamin Noys contests the tendency of contemporary conception to depend upon confirmation, and particularly an affirmative taking into account resistance. He unearths a profound present of negativity that enables idea to come to its political calling.
