Editors’ Introduction

HAR is pleased to present this roundtable review of Bernard Geoghegan’s recently published Code: From Information Theory to French Theory. This roundtable came about when multiple scholars expressed their interest in reviewing the book. We took the opportunity to craft three questions that we could pose to five scholars who offer different anthropological and historical perspectives. Below, we present this roundtable by question, by discussant, and with a response from the author. We are extremely grateful to all of our contributors for their commitment to this roundtable over many months and for sharing their thoughts with HAR readers.
