This interview explores the cultural and political dimensions of Stiegler's enterprise. Stiegler explains his conceptualization of cultural politics and why it is key to his analysis of contemporary crises – social, economic, and environmental. He situates his work in relation to the problematization of the conventional spectrum of left and right political positions. Referring to the work of Marx, Max Weber, Michel Foucault, and Gilbert Simondon, Stiegler characterizes his account of cultural capitalism in relation to his critique of the philosophy of technology. He talks about how his more recent publishing and public activities proceed from his account of the necessity to invent a viable cultural program for inter-generational reengagement with the technical milieu beyond the widespread disenchantment with social and political processes.
