Gilbert Simondon: being and technology.
Edinburgh University Press. 2012

The first sustained exploration of Simondon’s work in English

Gilbert Simondon’s work has recently come to prominence in America and around the Anglophone world, having been of great importance in France for many years. This first collection of essays, by renowned critics and philosophers, outlines the central tenets of Simondon’s thought, the implication of his work in numerous disciplines and his relationship to other thinkers such as Heidegger, Deleuze and Canguilhem.

Complete with a contextualizing introduction, a glossary of technical terms as well as an essay by Simondon himself, it offers an entry point to this important thinker and will appeal to people working in philosophy, philosophy of science, media studies, social theory and political philosophy.
