The first sustained exploration of Simondon’s work to be published in English.
This collection of essays, including one by Simondon himself, outlines the central tenets of Simondon’s thought, the implication of his thought for numerous disciplines and his relationship to other thinkers such as Heidegger, Deleuze and Canguilhem.
Complete with a contextualising introduction and a glossary of technical terms, it offers an entry point to this important thinker and will appeal to people working in philosophy, philosophy of science, media studies, social theory and political philosophy.
Gilbert Simondon’s work has recently come to prominence in America and around the Anglophone world, having been of great importance in France for many years.
