About this product
- DescriptionIn this important new book, Jacques Derrida talks with Bernard Stiegler about the effect of teletechlogies on our philosophical and political moment. Improvising before a camera, the two philosophers are confronted by the very techlogies they discuss and so are forced to address all the more directly the urgent questions that they raise. What does it mean to speak of the present in a situation of live recording? How can we respond, responsibly, to a question when we kw that the so--called natural conditions of expression, discussion, reflection, and deliberation have been breached? As Derrida and Stiegler discuss the role of teletechlogies in modern society, the political implications of Derridaa s thought become apparent. Drawing on recent events in Europe, Derrida and Stiegler explore the impact of television and the internet on our understanding of the state, its borders and citizenship. Their discussion examines the relationship between the juridical and the technical, and it shows how new techlogies for manipulating and transmitting images have influenced our tions of democracy, history and the body. The book opens with a shorter interview with Derrida on the news media, and closes with a provocative essay by Stiegler on the epistemology of digital photography. In Echographies of Television, Derrida and Stiegler open up questions that are of key social and political importance. Their book will be of great interest to all those already familiar with Derridaa s work, as well as to students and scholars of philosophy, literature, sociology and media studies.
