About Bloomsbury 20th-Century French Thought

Bloomsbury 20th-Century French Thought includes late 20th-century primary texts in translation from Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Jacques Rancière, Luce Irigaray, and Alain Badiou, alongside a wealth of secondary literature which covers key schools in French philosophy, from existentialism and phenomenology to postmodernism.

This collection also includes exclusive articles that challenge and engage canonical texts and thinkers, with new articles to be added each year. 

Content highlights:

  • 25 primary texts including works by thinkers such as Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Jacques Rancière, Luce Irigaray, and Alain Badiou
  • 125+ secondary literature eBooks including high-quality monographs, Reader’s Guides to primary texts, and two handbooks

Is the content included in Bloomsbury 20th-Century French Thought available online anywhere else?
Although the translated primary texts in Bloomsbury 20th-Century French Thought are also available to purchase in print and e-copy individually, they are available together on the resource for the first time (they are not available through Bloomsbury Collections). The articles included on the resource have been commissioned specifically to support these materials and are not available anywhere else.  

How regularly will the resource be updated?
The first update is planned for Early 2022. This update will conclude the launch content set. We plan to add all available primary texts in translation from Bloomsbury’s catalogue to French Thought by this update. New content will be added to the collection about every six months.

Who is the resource for?
Bloomsbury 20th-Century French Thought is an invaluable resource for students, scholars and researchers studying philosophy. The materials covered are also highly relevant to related disciplines such as literary studies, cultural studies, gender studies, and anthropology.
