Stiegler's University
Featherstone, Mark
Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, v39 n3 p289-306 2017
In this article, Mark Featherstone proposes to explore Bernard Stiegler's work through the lens of the politics of education and in particular the idea of the university, which becomes a pharmacological space of, on the one hand, utopian possibility, and, on the other hand, dystopian limitation, destruction, and death in his recent "States of Shock" (2015). It begins with a discussion of Stiegler's (2011b, 2012, 2014b) volumes on disbelief and discredit, before moving on to explore his theory of youth, attention capture, and the struggle between stupidity and intelligence (2010, 2015). Finally, Featherstone reflects upon his work on the significance of life, "What Makes Life Worth Living" (Stiegler, 2013), and emphasizes the importance of knowledge, culture, and education in his thought.
