About the Author

Michael Marder is IKERBASQUE Research Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of the Basque Country, Spain.


With fires raging in Australia, with epidemics threatening to engulf us all in their gigantic blaze, with explosions of religious and ethnic fanaticism, and with armed conflicts leaving behind cities in ruins, Marder's Pyropolitics has gained an unexpected actuality. It has become a book for everyone who wants to understand not only what is going on in our crazy world, but also the deeper ideological background of the events that shatter our daily lives. In short, it has become a book for everyone.
*Slavoj Zizek, Author of Disparities and Sex and the Failed Absolute*
