The first comprehensive introduction to one of the most influential French thinkers writing today, exploring Ranciere's ideas on philosophy, aesthetics, and politics. "Jacques Ranciere: An Introduction" offers the first comprehensive introduction to the thought of one of today's most important and influential theorists. Joseph Tanke situates Ranciere's distinctive approach against the backdrop of Continental philosophy and extends his insights into current discussions of art and politics. Tanke explains how Ranciere's ideas allow us to understand art as having a deeper social role than is customarily assigned to it, as well as how political opposition can be revitalized. The book presents Ranciere's body of work as a coherent whole, tracing key notions such as the distribution of the sensible, the aesthetics of politics, and the supposition of equality from his earliest writings through to his most recent interventions. Tanke concludes with a series of critical questions for Ranciere's work, indicating how contemporary thought might proceed after its encounter with him. The book provides readers new to Ranciere with a clear overview of his enormous intellectual output and develops his major. Engaging with many un-translated and unpublished sources, the book will also be of interest to Ranciere's long-time readers.
