With this review article, I evaluate Samuel Chambers's The Lessons of Rancière. Central to Rancière's corpus - and to Chambers's evaluation of this work - is the claim that frictive pedagogies can lead to a more radical emancipation by preparing for movements disruptive to politics. In analyzing the connections between pedagogy, emancipation, and movement, I question whether these concepts have been adequately conceived so as to contribute to collective political movements. I conclude by considering how these concepts might be revised and extended so as to sharpen their political effects.
