Post-Modern Gaming

Heidegger, Duchamp, Derrida


Tilman Küchler

This is a substantial contribution to the contemporary theoretical discourse. It draws on the works of Heidegger, Gadamer, Lyotard, Derrida and others to show the centrality of play for an effective critique of structures of metaphysical thinking. The author argues that it is the notion of play that allows us to understand postmodernity as a project that asserts the need to continue the modern tradition with a truly critical agenda.
