About the Author

Bernard Stiegler is Director of Cultural Development at theCentre Pompidou in Paris.


"In this decisive contribution to a critical understanding ofcontemporary life, Stiegler demonstrates how mass exclusion fromcultural production constitutes a form of generalizedimpoverishment, threatening to reduce our existence to meresubsistence. Typically though, he also suggests how we might buildalternatives to this 'symbolic misery'. This work forms a vitalpart of Stiegler's essential project." Martin Crowley, Queen s College, University ofCambridge "Expanding on Deleuze s idea of 'control societies', BernardStiegler provocatively diagnoses the 'misery' of contemporarysociety as a collective exclusion from the creation of symbols. Awar is being waged, he argues: capitalistic marketing is theinstrument of choice, the battleground is aestheticsand the fightis for the control of affect. Recommended for anyone interested inthe contemporary cultural condition." N. Katherine Hayles, Duke University
