Part 2 of Literate Technologies: Language, Cognition, Technicity.

Following from an earlier study of "literate
technologies," the present volume seeks to
examine a number of questions that inevitably
come to surround any discussion of signification
and dynamic systems; questions which concern the
relationship between what is variously meant by
the terms event and state, and which tend to
coalesce around a number of "problems" to do with
relativity and the discursive character of time
or temporalisation, mediality, representation and
the "techno-logisation" of presence. Such
questions ultimately travel far afield, between
ontology and classical epistemology, cybernetics
and quantum physics, poetics and political science.

Essays in this volume treat the work of Alain
Badiou, Bernard Stiegler, Thomas Pynchon, Martin
Heidegger, Karl Marx, Maurice Merleau-Ponty,
Jean-Paul Sartre, Sigmund Freud, Jose Delgado,
Friedrich Kittler, Jean-Luc Godard.

Louis Armand is director of the InterCultural
Studies programme in the Philosophy Faculty of
Charles University, Prague. His books include
Solicitations: Essays on Criticism & Culture;
Techne: James Joyce, Hypertext & Technology; and
Incendiary Devices: Discourses of the Other. He
is the editor of Contemporary Poetics (Northwestern University Press, 2007).
