Babak Davarpanah and Houshang Eftekharirad have rendered Jacques Rancière's Dissensus: On Politics and Aesthetics into Persian. Ranciere casts a novel view on aesthetic principles in his works.
The book is accompanied with a preface by the English translator of the book and an introduction by Slavoj Žižek, a Slovenian philosopher and cultural critic working in the traditions of Hegelianism, Marxism and Lacanian psychoanalysis, said head of the Roshd Amouzesh publication center Hussein Ferasatkhah, in an interview with IBNA.
He said the book is one of the few of Ranciere's works to be translated into Persian.
He went on to say that aesthetics is viewed differently by Ranciere in his work giving readers new outlooks about the issue when reading it.
Of Ranciere's 20 published titles, only Ten Theses on Politics has been converted into Persian so far, notwithstanding the fact that his views have attracted many eyes to his works in the past two decades, he added.
Jacques Rancière (born Algiers, 1940) is a French philosopher, Professor of Philosophy at European Graduate School in Saas-Fee and Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris (St. Denis) who came to prominence when he co-authored Reading Capital (1968), with the philosopher Louis Althusser.
