New theories and ideas are required this present day to imagine via those matters. The thinkers of poststructuralism Lyotard, Deleuze, Derrida needs to be re-read, as needs to the resources in their proposal, Hegel and Marx. yet we should also take account of Naomi Klein’s critique of Milton Friedman and the Chicago institution and her account of the ‘shock doctrine’. in reality, argues Stiegler, an enduring ‘state of shock’ has prevailed because the starting of the commercial revolution, intensified via the inventive destruction led to via the consumerist version. the end result has been a capitalism that destroys wish and cause and during which each establishment is undermined, primarily these associations which are the goods par excellence of the Enlightenment the schooling procedure and universities.

Through a robust critique of thinkers from Marx to Derrida, Stiegler develops new conceptual guns to struggle this destruction. He argues that colleges and universities needs to themselves be remodeled: new academic associations needs to be constructed either to take account of the risks of digitization and the web and to let us to use the hot possibilities they make to be had.
