Bemerkungen zu: A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things (Moore/Patel) – (2)

12 Dez , 2017  

Die Verbindung zwischen Arbeit, Natur und der Logik der Vereinfachung zeigt eine längere Kontinuität an. Und in diesem Kontext Arbeit und Umwelt als Gegensatz zu begreifen, ist analytisch falsch. Schon Marx kritisierte die deutschen Sozialisten dafür, die Arbeit als die einzige Quelle des Reichtums zu propagieren, während heute die Umweltschützer ...

There has been a steady—and studied—reluctance to grapple with capitalism as a historical-geographical place. A geography of value relations must proceed from the unities-in-diversity of

‘Pataphysics is the science of the trans-ontological: it finds imaginary solutions to bridge incompatible worlds (ontologies). As such, ‘pataphysics can only be a science of the particular; otherwise, these worlds would be subsumed under a more general ontology—thus intra-ontological, and not truly trans-ontological.

Der Quanten-Marxismus/ Non-Laruelle (1)
