In a key examination of the philosophical and political work of Alain Badiou, Bernard Stiegler, Martin Heidegger, Karl Marx, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Jean-Paul Sartre, Sigmund Freud, and Friedrich Kittler, this book by leading Prague critical theorist Louis Armand maps the territory , between ontology, cybernetics, aesthetics and political science, demarcating the horizon of the ‘event-state.’

Following from an earlier study of ‘literate technologies,’ the present volume continues an exploration of the discursive character of time, mediality, representation and the technologisation of presence.

Essays in this volume treat the work of Alain Badiou, Bernard Stiegler, Martin Heidegger, Karl Marx, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Jean-Paul Sartre, Sigmund Freud, Jose Delgado, Friedrich Kittler.

Ripping through this work, with its cybernetic preoccupations and post-structuralist rigor, is a strong countercurrent that leaves room for the human, even as it disenchants humanism. […] The result is a book that brings us to the edge and leaves us there to enjoy the breathtaking view.” –Davin Heckman, Rhizomes

Louis Armand is director of the Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory in the Philosophy Faculty of Charles University, Prague. His books include Solicitations: Essays on Criticism & CultureTechne: James Joyce, Hypertext & Technology; and Incendiary Devices: Discourses of the Other.
