Fifty Key Contemporary Thinkers From Structuralism to Post-Humanism
This revised second edition from our bestselling Key Guides includes brand new entries on some of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth- and twenty-first century: Zizek, Bergson, Husserl, Heidegger, Butler and Haraway.
With a new introduction by the author, sections on phenomenology and the post-human, full cross-referencing and up-to-date guides to major primary and secondary texts, this is an essential resource to contemporary critical thought for undergraduates and the interested reader.
'[Fifty Key Contemporary Thinkers] should be commended for providing lucid, insightful introductions to its chosen thinkers, each one of whom deserves serious consideration ... Lechte does not claim to provide a comprehensive analysis of his selected authors but simply to introduce the foundational ideas that orient newcomers to each thinker’s vocabulary and whet their appetites for further engagement. In this, the author succeeds admirably and this second edition of a fine work will be particularly helpful for many, especially for students of literary theory, of cultural studies and of philosophy in the traditions of structuralism and semiotics.' – Robert Ó’Móchain, Osaka University, Japan, Discourse & Communication
