Stiegler and Lacan — No Relation?

22 Sep , 2020  

I won’t bring up Lacan on Monday. But the non-encounter between Stiegler and Lacan recently struck me as important and I wanted to try to unravel the mystery…

In order to determine the characteristics of non-philosophy, we frame it in opposition to an image of an established paradigm: Deconstruction (as suggested by Jean-Luc Nancy in La deconstruction du christianisme).1 We comment on this image, we add to it, we transform it. It is a simple image of Deconstruction, ...

Nochmal zur Zeitenwende

20 Sep , 2020  

Die Abwehr von Verschwörungstheorien ist gegenwärtig nur die Abwehr, überhaupt strukturiert über ökonomische, militärische und politische Prozesse nachzudenken. Man verpaßt so die Geschichte und ihre Wendepunkte, denn die Geschichte ist selbstverständlich voller Verschwörungen, vollzieht sich nicht von selbst. Und man verabschiedet sich von jedem Gedanken, sich vielleicht selbst gegen diese ...

Between Philosophy and Non-Philosophy

20 Sep , 2020  

Rendering Marxism Real and Intelligible 

Marxism may have “lacked” the Real and tied its fate to the history-world. It may have consequently lacked the theory according-to-the-Real of this history-world. These are not just some “observations,” but a new style of theoretical hypotheses. They assume a “program” as much as they ...

Nietzsche erfindet eine Typologie der Langeweile, in der die Langeweile zunächst ein positives Zeichen für das Leben des Gelehrten ist, während der gewöhnliche Denker vor der Langweile flieht und Zerstreuung mit seiner Teilhabe in den Unterhaltungsmaschinerien sucht, Mode, Musik und Kunst, im Reisen oder im Sportbetrieb, all den Codierungen bzw. ...

Elections, State: Instruments of expropriation.

17 Sep , 2020  

Elections

Democracy and its instrument of choice are based on citizens handing over their powers to representatives or delegating them to a professional group that decides on their behalf. This implies a misjudgment, because only because the representatives exist does the represented group exist, which in turn creates its representatives ...

Under the aspect of the juxtaposition of commodity and money, Marx speaks in the first three chapters of Kapital Bd.1 of the commodity as a commodity form. If the development of value itself is addressed here at the same time, he speaks of the value form. In this context, he ...
