Description

Fifty Key Contemporary Thinkers surveys the most important figures who have influenced post-war thought. The reader is guided through structuralism, semiotics, post-Maxism and Annales history, on to modernity and postmodernity. With its comprehensive biographical and bibliographical information, this book provides a vital reference work for all those who want to understand the intellectual history of the last fifty years.

REVIEWS

If you don’t know your Deleuze from your Derrida, or your Bataille from your Bourdieu, or your Lacan from your Lyotard, or indeed if you’re still catching up on Benjamin, Mauss, Adorno and Saussure-then this is the book for you.
-The Guardian

This is exceptional-a marvelous achievement and a notable reference source-book with entries which are lucid, sharp, lively, scholarly and critically engaged.
-Dr Keith Ansell-Pearson, University of Warwick
