Establishes Lyotard as the most politically committed of contemporary sceptical thinkers

  • Analyses Lyotard''s key concepts in terms of their political implications
  • Applies the ''little narrative'' notion to current ideological struggles
  • Analyses the role played by relativism in contemporary political thought, particularly Lyotard''s sustained attempts to reconcile relativism with value judgement

It is Jean François Lyotard''s political focus that singles him out from his poststructuralist and postmodernist contemporaries. He is invariably ''thinking politics'': finding ways of translating philosophical thought into a basis for political action. Stuart Sim explores how Lyotard''s brand of pragmatism can provide a focus for political theory and action in our cultural climate, especially in light of the dramatic resurgence of right-wing extremism.
