Sylvère Lotringer is a literary critic and cultural theorist. A younger contemporary of Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Jean Baudrillard, Paul Virilio and Michel Foucault, he is best known for synthesizing French theory with American literary, cultural and architectural avant-garde movements through his work with Semiotext(e) ; and for his interpretations of French theory in a 21st century context. An influential interpreter of Jean Baudrillard’s theories, Lotringer invented the concept “extrapolationist” as a means of describing the hyperbolic world-views espoused by Baudrillard and Paul Virilio. Lotringer is a Professor Emeritus at Columbia University and a Professor of Foreign Philosophy at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. He has also published extensively on the French “high modernists,” Antonin Artaud, Simone Weil and Georges Bataille.
