A lot of it, especially at the beginning, is written for a specific time and moment. Forgive me. As you may know, I am writing a thesis this semester, to my posts might veer toward the note-based or short-argumentative or whatever for a little while. In other words, Lyotard works in theories that are ontologically and epistemologically slippery, and Thebaud is working very hard to apply some friction to them. Lyotard is generally responding to claims about justice that have haunted European models of political engagement since the middle ages, and his central claim is that because the entirety of expression is merely a game, then there is no firm ground for theories of justice to land on.

Jean-François Lyotard (1924—1998)

His interdisciplinary discourse spans such topics as epistemology and communication, the human body, modern art and postmodern art , literature and critical theory , music, film, time and memory, space, the city and landscape, the sublime , and the relation between aesthetics and politics. He is best known for his articulation of postmodernism after the late s and the analysis of the impact of postmodernity on the human condition. Lyotard was a key personality in contemporary Continental philosophy and author of 26 books and many articles. As a child, Lyotard had many aspirations: to be an artist, a historian, a Dominican friar, and a writer.

Jean-François Lyotard

French post-structuralist philosopher, best known for his highly influential formulation of postmodernism in The Postmodern Condition. Despite its popularity, however, this book is in fact one of his more minor works. For Lyotard, this fact has a deep political import, since politics claims to be based on accurate representations of reality. Lyotard deals with these common themes in a highly original way, and his work exceeds many popular conceptions of postmodernism in its depth, imagination, and rigor.
