From the Publisher. Lyotard investigates the legitimation of knowledge when there is no unified public sphere, only discordant language games. He also considers the possibility of ethical political practice after deconstruction, while also giving it historical ground by relating these issues to figures like Aristotle and Kant.

Reading this book as a young architect, at a time when the deconstruction movement was in full swing, helped me view my work from another perspective. Rather than a formal or stylistic approach, the idea of deconstruction finds a way outside of the modernist heroic ideal.
