Gregg Lambert, Towards a Geopolitical Image of Thought – Edinburgh University Press, February 2021
Radically reorientates the future direction of Continental philosophy according to a geo-political image of thought
- Presents the notion of ‘geophilosophy’ as an alternative to contemporary theories of political theology
- Offers a defence of Lyotard’s concept of le differend as charting the future of continental philosophy
- Highlights the role of collective identification in the creation of conceptual personae and ‘isms’ in the history of continental thought
- Shows Nietzsche’s influence on the uniquely modern role of the ‘conceptual persona’ in the philosophy of Deleuze
Drawing from his previous writings on the search for a new image of thought and the vitalist role of ‘conceptual personae’ in the history of philosophy, Gregg Lambert proposes a new geo-political image of thought that is uniquely commensurate with the globalisation of contemporary continental philosophy.
