Bernard Stiegler is one of the leading French philosophers of our generation. He develops the work Jacques Derrida, Gilbert Simondon, and Andre Le Roi-Gourhan in a wide-ranging analysis of our relationship with technology. Stiegler established himself in France in 1994 with the publication of the first volume of Technics and Time. This three-volume series has now been published in English translation by Stanford University Press.

Since Technics and Time, Stiegler has remained a prolific author, publishing, for example, the two volumes of De la misère symbolique (‘Of Symbolic Misery’) in 2004, three volumes of Mécréance et discrédit (‘Disbelief and Discredit’) from 2005 to 2006, Constituer l’Europe (‘Constituting Europe’) in 2005, and Prendre soin (‘Taking Care’) in 2008. Most recently, his Pharmacologie du Front National (2013) continues the project of ‘positive pharmacology’ which he started in 2010 with the publication of Ce qui fait que la vie vaut la peine d'être vécue: De la pharmacologie (What Makes Life Worth Living: On Pharmacology’, in 2013).

BERNARD STIEGLER is Head of the Department of Cultural Development at the Pompidou Center in Paris, Professor at Université de Technologie de Compiègne and Visiting Professor to Goldsmiths, University of London. In addition, he is Director of the Institut de Recherche et d’Innovation, founder in 2005 of the political and cultural group, Ars Industrialis, and founder in 2010 of the philosophy school, Ecole de Philosophie d’Epineuil-le-Fleuriel.
