The book is a reading of numerous contemporary continental
philosophers (Badiou, Deleuze and Guattari, Laruelle and
Derrida amongst others) and bringing them into conversation
with each other around various ethical and political
challenges of living in capitalist worlds. What can
contemporary continental philosophy offer with regards to
the questions of decolonial thinking, the challenges of
identity politics, the formation of political identities in
response to the dominant norms in the context of the
struggles of victims of these norms?
