Agamben by Claire Colebrook Agamben, Paperback (December 2015)

Until recently, "continental" philosophy has been tied either to the German tradition of phenomenology or to French post-structuralist concerns with the conditions of language and textuality.

Jacques Derrida by Claire Colebrook Jacques Derrida, Hardback (November 2014)

Presenting both an examination of the key concepts central to his thinking and a broader study of how that thinking shifted over a lifetime, this book offers the reader a clear, systematic and fresh examination of the astounding breadth of Derrida's philosophy.

Blake, Deleuzian Aesthetics and the Digital by Claire Colebrook Blake, Deleuzian Aesthetics and the Digital, Hardback (January 2012)
