I have created an EndNote file for some of these references, which you can download here. See also the Wikipedia page for Bernard Stiegler, where there is a fairly comprehensive list of Stiegler’s work as well as a list of secondary literature that addresses his work.

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 Not included in Dan Ross’ list, apparently, are several unpublished works.

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.
