Reading Ronell
summary
In works such as The Test Drive, Stupidity, Crack Wars, and The Telephone Book, Avital Ronell has perpetually raised new and powerful questions about how we think, what thinking does, and how we fool ourselves about the troubled space between thought and action. In this collection, some of today's most distinguished and innovative thinkers turn their attention to Ronell's teaching, writing, and provocations, observing how Ronell reads and what comes from reading her. By reading Ronell, and reading Ronell reading, contributors examine the ethico-political implications of her radical dislocations and carefully explicate, extend, and explore the paraconcepts addressed in her works._x000B__x000B_Contributors are Pierre Alferi, Gil Anidjar, Susan Bernstein, Judith Butler, Tom Cohen, Diane Davis, Peter Fenves, Werner Hamacher, Elissa Marder, Jean-Luc Nancy, Shireen R. K. Patell, Thomas Pepper, Laurence A. Rickels, Hent de Vries, Elisabeth Weber, and Samuel Weber.
