Andre Gorz is widely regarded as a major contemporary theoretician and his comprehensive critique of social formations offers both a direction and meaning to the current technological revolution.
In the first accessible introduction to his work in English, Lodziak and Tatman trace the development of Gorz's political and philosophical theory over a period of more than four decades. Gorz's influence on European intellectual and political culture is examined, as is Gorz's own formative influence.
Conrad Lodziak teaches Media Studies at Nottingham Trent University. Following his deportation from the USA in 1972 for anti-American activities, Lodziak has been involved in a variety of oppositional projects. He is the author of Andre Gorz: A Critical Introduction (Pluto Press,1997), a number of articles on psychological theory and critical social and political theory and contributor to The Power of Television: A Critical Appraisal (London: Pinter 1986). Jeremy Tatman is Lecturer in Critical Media Theory at the University of Nottingham.
