Abstract or Description

Genealogies of Speculation looks to break the impasse between the innovations of speculative thought and the dominant strands of 20th century anti-foundationalist philosophy. Challenging emerging paradigms of philosophical history, this text re-evaluates different theoretical and political traditions such as feminism, literary theory, Marxism, art history, film studies after the speculative turn in Philosophy. With contributions from leading writers in contemporary thought this is a crucial resource for studying cultural and art theory and continental philosophy.
