Description

Delving into the anarchist writings of Nietzsche, Foucault, and Baudrillard, and exploring the cyberpunk fiction of William Gibson and Bruce Sterling, theorist Lewis Call examines the new philosophical current where anarchism meets postmodernism. This theoretical stream moves beyond anarchism's conventional attacks on capital and the state to criticize those forms of rationality, consciousness, and language that implicitly underwrite all economic and political power. Call argues that postmodernism's timely influence updates anarchism, making it relevant to the political culture of the new millennium.show more

Review quote

Lewis Call's Postmodern Anarchism is not only a clear, concise statement of the intersection of postmodernism and anarchist thought; it is an original contribution in its own right. The remarkable pages on cyberpunk open the discussion of this intersection to an entirely new arena. -- Todd May, Class of 1941 Memorial Professor of the Humanities, Clemson University, USAshow more
