Who is jean fran��ois lyotard?

Famous quotes containing the word lyotard:

    Eclecticism is the degree zero of contemporary general culture: one listens to reggae, watches a western, eats McDonald’s food for lunch and local cuisine for dinner, wears Paris perfume in Tokyo and “retro” clothes in Hong Kong; knowledge is a matter for TV games. It is easy to find a public for eclectic works.
    —Jean François Lyotard (b. 1924)
