Paul Virilio : From Modernism to Hypermodernism and Beyond Paperback / softback
Edited by John Armitage
Part of the Published in association with Theory, Culture & Society series
Paul Virilio is one of the most significant and stimulating French cultural theorists writing today.
Increasingly hailed as the 'archaeologist of the future', Virilio is noted for his proclamation that the logic of ever increasing acceleration lies at the heart of the organization and transformation of the contemporary world.
The first book to afford a properly critical evaluation of Virilio's cultural theory, it includes an interview with Virilio; a recently translated example of his work; and a select bibliography of his writings. The commissioned contributions by leading cultural and social theorists examine Virilio's work from his early speculations on military and urban space to his current writings on dromology, politics, new communications technologies, disappearance, and the fallout from `the information bomb'.
