"The Philosopher and His Poor is a remarkable work. Jacques Ranciere demonstrates the recurrence throughout the history of western thought of a particular self-constituting move: the freedom and the right to think are premised upon a situating and excluding of those whose task is other than to think, what Ranciere calls `the poor.'"-Derek Attridge, author of The Singularity of Literature "Sure to provoke controversy, The Philosopher and His Poor is a virtuoso performance. I can't think of anyone who has pursued the populist premise-the intuition that in this or that situation the grounding of truth or value is to be located in those most dispossessed-with anything approaching Ranciere's degree of articulateness or philosophical sophistication. I predict that this book will become a landmark."-Bruce Robbins, author of Feeling Global: Internationalism in Distress
