"A clear, fast-paced, truly exciting book." Jean-Michel Rabate, University of Pennsylvania "Documentality re-energizes the traditional philosophical debate on realism by contextualizing this problematic within the field of new media and positioning it in the wake of the momentous philosophical contributions of Derrida and Foucault." Alessia Ricciardi, Northwestern University
