DAS GROSSE ZERO (Économie libidinale, Paris 1974) Jean-Francois Lyotard: Libidinöse Ökonomie

17 Sep , 2017  

Walter Reese-Schäfer vermag in „Lyotard zur Einführung“ (bei JUNIUS) mit der LÖ offensichtlich nicht viel anzufangen. Dennoch wird deutlich, dass „die Krise der Auflösung“ einer sozialistischen Gruppe (19) sicherlich ein Anlass zur Niederschrift der LÖ war, es aber im Kern um etwas fundamental Existenzielles geht: um Verzweiflung (18 und 155) ...

Das Aufbrechen der Schliessung: «Links wird die Machtfrage wieder gestellt»

16 Sep , 2017  

… Natürlich gibt es da einen Bezug zu Guattari, zu Bataille, zu Heidegger und Nietzsche. Es geht um eine Ökologie, also um eine Lehre von der Welt als Umwelt, die sich der automatischen Reduktion des Ökologischen auf die Reproduktion seiner selbst entzieht und stattdessen fragt, ob das Ökologische nicht umgekehrt ...

Guattari & Italy’s “Hot Autumn”

11 Sep , 2017  

Guattari was dreaming of building a federation of regional protest movements, which could open up secondary fronts and weaken the Nation-State. Despite his extensive network of contacts, he never managed to realize this perilous project, which was located on the cusp between democratic combat and terrorist action […] Guattari became ...

NONCONCEPTUAL NEGATIVITY: ADORNO+LIFE+DELEUZE

NEGATION OF NEGATION vs AFFIRMATION

In Difference and Repetitioni, particularly in sections written on negativity, Deleuze, discussing the distinction between “being and non-being” and “being and non-being” rejects the consideration of the latter under the aegis of Hegelian dialectics. He is talking about Plato’s The Sophist and according ...

Der heutige Mensch hat die Vitalität eines Regenwurms

20 Jul , 2017  

Adorno schreibt den Kunstwerken eine Vitalität, ja sogar Subjektivität zu, insofern es als ein sich entfaltendes Subjekt der Erfahrung fungiert und sich autopoetisch zu entfalten hat. Diese vitalistische Ansicht zeigt sich, wenn Adorno von den Kunstwerken spricht, sie „altern, erkalten, sterben“, sie seien „Leben sui generis“, Im spekulativen Realismus wird ...

From a Philosophically Clean-Shaven Marx to a Philosophically Decolonized Deleuze

[This is a really rough outline/introductory sketch for the third chapter of my dissertation, which takes up the relationship between the persisting residual eurocentrism in specific interpretations of D&G’s political project, and how D&G themselves constructed a framework by which to eradicate its lasting traces in both thinking and revolutionary ...

Slime ethics: Lovecraft and becoming-alien

16 Jun , 2017  

In recent years H.P. Lovecraft gathered a lot of interest from modern philosophers, most  visibly in the writings of Graham Harman and other speculative realists like Reza Negarestani or Eugene Thacker. His writings were also, perhaps unexpectedly, taken up by queer and feminist theorists like Patricia MacCormack or Donna Haraway. ...

Deleuze/Guattari: ‘Stop the World!’

One of the things of profound interest in Castaneda’s books, under the influence of drugs, or other things, and of a change of atmosphere, is precisely that they show how the Indian manages to combat the mechanisms of interpretation and instill in the disciple a presignifying semiotic, or even an ...

Returning to Revolution: Deleuze, Guattari, and Zapatismo

19 Mai , 2017  

We are witnessing today the return of a new theory and practice of revolution. This return, however, takes none of the traditional forms:the capture of the state, the political representation of the party, the centrality of the proletariat, or the leadership of the vanguard. Rather, given the failure of such ...
