Jean-Francois Lyotard's importance to modern philosophy cannot be overstated. Often associated with the concept of postmodernism, Lyotard was a central figure in the 'theory debates' during the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. His writings across the disciplines strongly influenced the current shape of contemporary continental philosophy and critical theory, with his posthumously published books and essays having a significant impact on current scholarly debates. This three-volume set is a collection of key critical responses by leading scholars to the philosophical and theoretical writings of the late postmodern philosopher. Organized thematically, the collection includes commentaries on Lyotard's `life and early philosophical writings', as well as on ethics, aesthetics, and politics. With a new introduction by the editor providing a comprehensive overview of Jean-Francois Lyotard's life and works, this impressive collection provides students and scholars with a valuable resource for studying this important philosophical figure.
