A bibliography of Stiegler’s work in English

PLEASE NOTE: This bibliography has been moved to a permanent page, where it will continue to be updated.

Following Ben Robertson’s lead, and courtesy of Daniel Ross’ Twitter stream (and with his permission), here is a complete list of Bernard Stiegler’s work translated into English. Many of these translations are by Ross (notably Acting Out, For a New Critique of Political Economy, Taking Care of Youth and the Generations and The Decadence of Industrial Democracies). Not included in Dan Ross’ list, apparently, are several unpublished works.

UPDATE 2/08/12: I have appended some pieces I had missed from the list and added some further details for some forthcoming texts.

My sincere thanks to Dan Ross for posting this information and to Ben Robertson for marshalling it into a single place. I have tried to identify the translators where possible and provide links where they may be meaningful. I was introduced to Stiegler’s work by my colleague Patrick Crogan and it has proven useful to my research, and indeed Robertson’s, this bibliography is very timely and tremendously useful, I hope it is to you too.

For more on Dan, who directed the fantastic The Ister and wrote Violent Democracy, see his Wikipedia page.
