Jean-Pierre Couture is Professor in the School of Political Studies at the University of Ottawa
"Jean-Pierre Couture's long-awaited essay on Peter Sloterdijk is
the first attempt to assess his entire work and it is something of
a tour-de-force. Peter Sloterdijk is one of the most inventive,
provocative and controversial contemporary philosopher. A disciple
of Nietzsche and Heidegger in rupture with the tradition of the
School of Frankfurt, he is the most French of German philosophers.
He was already something of a miracle when he emerged in the late
80s, and he has consistently remained a game changer. Jean-Pierre
Couture's study will definitely fulfill the readers's
Sylvere Lotringer, Columbia University
"An excellent, intriguing and perceptive study of Peter
Sloterdijk s extraordinary work. This is no small task - Sloterdijk
is a prolific writer, who covers a wide range of topics, and who is
allusive, provocative and often unsystematic. A model of how to
write about a thinker whose thought is still in process."
Stuart Elden, University of Warwick Sloterdijk s eventful life, colourful style, intellectual ambition, provocative diagnoses, and even more controversial prescriptions are endlessly fascinating.
