Raoul Vaneigem (Lessines, Hainaut, 1934) is a Belgian philosopher and writer known for his 1967 book The Revolution of Everyday Life (Traité de savoir-vivre à l'usage des jeunes générations), published in the same year as The Society of the Spectacle, that helped broaden and balance the presentation of the Situationist International's theories and practices. One of the longest SI members, and frequent editor of the journal Internationale Situationniste, Vaneigem finally left the SI in November of 1970, citing their failures as well as his own in his letter of resignation. Soon after, Debord issued a typically scathing response denouncing both Vaneigem and his critique of the Situationist International. He lives in France, where he actively contributes to the debates in social movements of rupture.
