    A guide to the thinkers and the ideas that will shape the future.

    What has happened to the public intellectuals that used to challenge and inform us? Who is the Sartre, de Beauvoir or Stuart Hall of the present age? In General Intellects, McKenzie Wark introduces us to 25 thinkers who are transforming the landscape of ideas in the 21st century, covering topics such as politics, culture, psychoanalysis, the anthropocene, and the 'nonhuman'.
    Each chapter explores an individual thinker, places them within the intellectual landscape, showing how they are opening up new horizons that will define our times. Wark, a respected theorist in his own right, also critically engages with their work. This is essential reading for all students as well as anyone interested in the current republic of ideas.
    The thinkers included: Amy Wending, Kojin Karatani, Franco Moretti, Fredric Jameson, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri, Yann Moulier Boutang, Paolo Virno, Maurizio Lazzarato, Franco 'Bifo' Baradi, Slavoj Zizek, Jodi Dean, Wendy Brown, Wendy Chun, Alexander Galloway, Azumo Hiroki, Timothy Morton, Isabelle Stengers, Quentin Meillassoux.
