Flights, intervals and conversions: the aesthetic-politics of Jacques Rancière

Jacques Rancière's philosophy is a complex and intricate network of history, politics, poetics and their people. Each episode of his philosophical writings is an accumulative body of work where oblique connections are made to his earlier works; these are all held together by his conceptual analysis of modern being. This thesis attempts to demonstrate this by interconnecting his key concepts alongside an analysis of the spatial and temporal conditions expressed in his work. In particular, certain spatio-temporal moments of emancipation that feature in his work are inherently aesthetic, containing both ethical and political dimensions.
