By Judith Butler; Ernesto Laclau; Slavoj Žižek; Laura Bazzicalupo; et al

Tre grandi intellettuali del nostro pace discutono los angeles crisi di identità della sinistra. Perché è così difficile proporre oggi politiche di emancipazione? Quali temi sono stati tralasciati dal dibattito? È possibile un soggetto politico di sinistra quando proliferano esigenze di frammentazione e di chiusura nelle proprie identità? L'urgenza di questi quesiti è information dal tracollo delle utopie di emancipazione e dalla pervasività del sistema economico e dell'immaginario capitalista che oggi, dopo quest'ultima grande crisi, si riafferma a livello planetario. Le possibili risposte sono molteplici e ricche di spunti: Butler - los angeles maggiore teorica femminista americana - a partire dalla fluidità dell'identità sessuale, propone un soggetto come essere vulnerabile, stretto fra senso del limite e desiderio che muove l'azione; Laclau riprende il concetto gramsciano di egemonia, in line with uscire dalle strette del veteromarxismo e del decostruzionismo postmoderno; Zizek, uno dei più originali e provocatori pensatori di oggi, scompagina, anche a costo del politicamente scorretto, l. a. paralisi della sinistra e rinnova il linguaggio politico con l'innesto di categorie psicoanalitiche.

Die Dialektik des Geheimnisses by Grazyna Kwiecinska

By Grazyna Kwiecinska

Was once magazine «Dialektik des Geheimnisses» heißen? Geheimnisse können enthüllt werden, wenn auch nicht immer mit Erfolg, und es gibt offene Geheimnisse, von denen nur hinter vorgehaltener Hand gesprochen wird. Doch es gibt auch Geheimnisse, die es bleiben und über die guy nur Vermutungen anstellen kann, zumal auf den Spuren der hermetischen Literatur. Es ist eine Hermetik, die sich nicht in gewöhnlicher Kommunikationsverweigerung erschöpft, sondern - mit Adorno gesprochen - dialektisch verfasst ist: Ihr Schweigen soll als ein Zeichen, als eine öffentliche Bekundung im weitesten Sinne verstanden werden. Der Betrachtungszeitraum dieses Bandes beginnt im 18. Jahrhundert mit Hamann, Goethe und Novalis. Von dort aus wird ein Bogen ins 21. Jahrhundert geschlagen, bis hin zu Yoko Tawadas Celan-Übersetzung und der Holocaustliteratur der dritten iteration. Das behandelte Textfeld umfasst über die klassische Sphäre hinaus auch politische Programme und kulturphilosophische Entwürfe. Dementsprechend reicht die Bandbreite der verwendeten Methodologien von Ideen- und Diskursgeschichte bis hin zur Textrhetorik, Intertextualität und Intermedialität.

What Are We?: A Study in Personal Ontology by Eric T. Olson

By Eric T. Olson

From the time of Locke, discussions of non-public id have frequently neglected the query of our simple metaphysical nature: even if we human individuals are organic organisms, spatial or temporal elements of organisms, bundles of perceptions, or what have you ever. the results of this forget has been centuries of untamed proposals and clashing intuitions. What Are We? is the 1st common examine of this significant query. It beings via explaining what the query capacity and the way it differs from others, corresponding to questions of non-public identification and the mind-body challenge. It then examines in a few intensity the most attainable debts of our metaphysical nature, detailing either their theoretical virtues and the usually grave problems they face. The publication doesn't recommend any specific account of what we're, yet argues that the problem activates extra normal concerns within the ontology of fabric issues. If composition is universal--if any fabric issues no matter what make up anything bigger--then we're temporal components of organisms. If issues by no means compose something larger, in order that there are just mereological simples, then we too are simples--perhaps the immaterial components of Descartes--or else we don't exist in any respect (a view Olson takes very seriously). The intermediate view that a few issues compose greater issues and others don't leads virtually necessarily to the belief that we're organisms. that will become aware of what we're by way of understanding while composition happens.
