Om Lyotard Reframed
Lyotard's claims concerning the postmodern have often been misunderstood or misrepresented. Lyotard Reframed provides an analysis of Lyotard's most influential writings on the postmodern alongside a detailed commentary on his broader philosophy, demonstrating and clarifying his work's ongoing relevance to creative endeavour and debates concerning the value and significance of the visual arts. It also situates Lyotard's discussion of the postmodern within the context of his other key concepts: the figural, the libidinal and the sublime. Accessible in style and approach, Lyotard Reframed employs numerous examples drawn from the arts to critically examine and evaluate the nature, history and significance of these important concepts and explore their respective links with phenomenology, Marxism, structuralism, psychoanalysis and deconstruction.
