The Possessed Individual: Technology and the French Postmodern

The Possessed Individual: Technology and the French Postmodern
by Arthur Kroker

# Paperback: 250 pages
# Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan (December 15, 1991)

Taking as his starting point the failure of Sartre and Camus to resolve the problem of individual freedom and public duty, Kroker surveys French postmodernist theory as an approach to understanding the relationship between politics and technology in North America. The work of Virilio, Baudrillard, Barthes, Deleuze, Guattari, Lyotard, and Foucault offers both an analysis and an indictment of the cynical reason underlying terminal culture. Influenced by Peter Sloterdijk's Critique of Cynical Reason, this is a suggestive, if at times facile, fluent, and occasionally trendy, introduction to the French postmodernist thinkers and their importance to understanding modern so ciety.
