Since 2010, and following the Paying Attention conference, I have been studying the work, and activist project, of the philosopher Bernard Stiegler. A prolific writer, Stiegler pursues a wide-ranging set of interests with the human-technology relationship at their heart. Spanning metaphysics and ontology (in his Technics and Time series); a critique of political economy (in both his For a New Critique of Political Economy, and the series Disbelief and Discredit and Symbolic Misery) as well as aesthetics and pedagogy, his writing is extraordinarily wide-ranging and prolific (Stiegler has five book series – and counting). Stiegler has also been instrumental in founding both the Institut de Recherche et d’Innovation at the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the activist association Ars Industrialis.
More recently, I have been collecting a bibliography of the work by Stiegler that has been translated into English. I have also attempted to contribute to translating some of the interviews and short pieces with and by Stiegler, which I have put on this website.
I have created this new section of my website to draw together these resources in a more meaningful, and hopefully useful, way.
I have made a few translations of works by and about Stiegler. Please find them on the ‘translation‘ page.
