Reviews

Whether analyzing anthropology or philosophy, architecture, poetry, war, or geopolitics, Paul Virilio's The University of Disaster employs a razor-sharp intellect and remarkable scholarship. It reveals contemporary French critical cultural theory to be a startling yet insightful field for anybody concerned with the global debates on technoscience, subjectivity, reality, and temporality.
John Armitage, Northumbria University

Paul Virilio has long been one of the most fascinating and provocative thinkers of our contemporary moment. In The University of Disaster, Virilio advances his thinking on the crises of the present age, and continues developing his original thinking on time, space, speed, technology, politics and the human sciences mixed in with reflections on contemporary events and thought. Once again, Virilio reveals himself to be a major theorist of our era whose thought continues to develop novel positions and provocations in the new millennium.
Douglas Kellner, UCLA
