Although relatively unknown a decade ago, the work of Jacques Rancière is fast becoming a central reference in the humanities and social sciences. His thinking brings a fresh, innovative approach to many fields, notably the study of work, education, politics, literature, film, art, as well as philosophy. This is the first, full-length introduction to Rancière’s work and covers the full range of his contribution to contemporary thought, presenting in clear, succinct chapters the key concepts Rancière has developed in his writings over the last forty years.

"An accessible but sophisticated introduction to the extraordinarily rich conceptual apparatus of Rancière." – Andrew Schaap, University of Exeter

"While this book does not, of course, constitute a substitute for reading Ranciere’s own texts, it forms an excellent introductory complement. The volume is organized thematically, starting with philosophy and moving on to politics, poetics, and aesthetics, a sequence that broadly follows the chronological order of the major preoccupations of Ranciere’s own writing career. All the important developments are here." – French Studies

Jean-Philippe Deranty is Lecturer in Philosophy at Macquarie University, Australia.
