Abstract

This collection of essays, including one by Gilbert Simondon himself, outlines the central tenets of Simondon's thought, the implication of his thought for numerous disciplines, and his relationship to other thinkers such as Heidegger, Deleuze, and Canguilhem.

Complete with a contextualizing introduction and a glossary of technical terms, it offers an entry point to this important thinker and will appeal to people working in philosophy, philosophy of science, media studies, social theory, and political philosophy.

Simondon's work has recently come to prominence in America and around the Anglophone world, having been of great importance in France for many years.
