Synopsis

This is the first dictionary dedicated to the pioneering work of French art and technology critic Paul Virilio. In Virilio's writings, meanings and interpretations are often difficult and ambiguous. This dictionary guides you through his concepts with headwords including Accident, Body, Cinema, Deterritorialization and Eugenics. You can explore the very edge of Virilio's pioneering thought in cultural and social theory with the entries on Foreclosure, Grey Ecology, Polar Inertia and the Overexposed City. The Virilio Dictionary is vital for anyone wanting to keep up with Virilio's dynamic program for the study of postmodern culture. It covers of every major Virilian subject and idea and how each functions within his philosophy in all of his writing to date. It is clearly written and cross-referenced entries make it quick and easy for you to find what you're looking for and follow the threads of Virilio's thought.
