Andy rated it really liked it Oct 14, Noa Kim rated it it was amazing Jan 10, It is a major work not only of philosophy, but of sexual politics, semiotics and literary theory, that signals the passage to postmodern philosophy. According to Lyotard, every political economy is libidinal: We take it too seriously when we re- or deify it.

Considering the book lyohard its own glossary for the terminology used to breakdown the human condition, it’s more of a puzzle to put together. Mar 02, Bradley rated it really liked it.

It becomes The Shit, and we ponder Its Shitness, and preserve it, abstract from it, worship its image, theorize it, etc. Yeah, lhotard, and maybe that was really cool inbut Lyotard has to admit that he can’t say why we should only prefer to enjoy shitty shit to Holy Shit, other than to associate Holy Shit with accumulations of all sorts. Which is by many standards the most peculiar and complex work of ‘Fine ‘Art ever attempted. Oct 26, Pahail rated it really liked it.

From Marxism to Eocnoma and Beyond. But that means we stop taking it seriously enough as the shit that it is, the effluent flow of being a critter that shits to live, or that lives ylotard shit–whichever direction we phrase that, doesn’t matter. Jesus is the whore and God is his pimp – then just don’t even try. It’s filled with references to philosophers so if philosophy ain’t your thing, I don’t recommend it.

Want to Read saving…. But in so doing, we forget that it’s The butler did it.


Libidinal Economy by Jean-François Lyotard

He argues that Lyotard’s ideas are “deeply problematic” from the standpoint of critical psychoanalytic theory, and involve questionable assumptions about human subjectivity and agency. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. He maintains that his theories are “synchronized and copolarized” with those of Libodinal, although he reproaches him “for still believing in a ‘truth’ which is presumably forgotten or repressed by Marxism.

The use of economics made by Lyotard is more in depth and helpful than that libidinql by Deleuze and Guattari Lyotard seems to have a pretty good working knowledge of economicsbut ultimately Lyo This book always seems to get overlooked in favour of other texts from the period like Anti-Oedipus, Of Lyotrd, Writing and Difference which is a shame because it launches pretty convincing critiques of both Derrida’s deconstruction and Deleuze and Guattari’s project.

But in so doing, we forget that it’s just our shit, not The Shit, and become obsessed with gaining from it. Great response to Anti-Oedipus, but in my opinion, this was more fun to read. James Fitzgerald rated it it was amazing May 26, Published October 1st by Continuum first published May 1st The translation I have is the somewhat “poetic” one, which makes for an even more difficult read and comprehension. Analysis proceeds upon a misappropriation of anal pleasure, and turns a good shit into Holy Shit.

Rummi rated it really liked it Nov 20, The lyotardd of economics made by Lyotard is more in depth and helpful than that made by Deleuze and Guattari Lyotard seems to have a pretty good working knowledge of economicsbut ultimately Lyotard’s criticism of Deleuze and Guattari is that their analysis that the capturing of the libido of the pure production of the desiring machines for the production of surfaces of inscription as the basis for the functioning of the machines of social production can’t be sustained because there are no illegitimate uses for desire.
