About the Author

Peter Sloterdijk is Professor of Philosophy and Aesthetics at the Karlsruhe School of Design.


"Confirms Sloterdijk as the thinking European's Slavoj ?i?ek, asrestlessly digressive as his Slovenian counterpart, but even moreintellectually reckless and better company." The Guardian "In the last few years Sloterdijk has moved from a figure ofrelative obscurity in Anglophone debates to being one of the keythinkers of our time. This wide-ranging, engaging, thoughtful andprovocative book illustrates why. An unashamedly grand narrative,it engages with both the philosophical and political complexitiesof the question of the world. It is once again presented in a veryfine translation by Wieland Hoban." Stuart Elden, Durham University "Peter Sloterdijk never disappoints when it comes to producing anoriginal point of view. Equally, he never disappoints in themagnitude of his ambitions. In this deeply original andhyper-ambitious book, he presents a history of globalization, noless. In doing so, he resurrects what has become a tired andhackneyed term by reconstituting it as a drama of location but onewherein the notion of location is itself brought into the play as acentral element of the plot. And what a play it is, the play of anever-increasing density of events and an ever-decreasingconcentration of purpose which if we re not verycareful will produce a 'last orb'. Wonderful stuff whichrestores our faith in the power of grand narratives." Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick
