Notes on Christian Jambet & the Question of the One

17 Mai , 2018  

If there is one conviction shared by the majority of contemporary philosophers, this is it: the one is not [l’un n’est pas]. . .Once affirmed, this conviction converts smoothly into various systems of thought, until either every attestation of the real is renounced, or at least until the real is ...

2 Apr , 2018  

taken from here Revolutionäres Sprudeln

Heute möchten bestimmte Journalisten, Intellektuelle, Künstler und Politikerinnen dem Jahr 68 und seiner Revolten gedenken, die sie als einzig und allein von der Sehnsucht nach kapitalistischer Demokratie, nach individualistischen und liberalen Vergnügungen darstellen. Wieder mal geht es ums Verkaufen, um Einschaltquoten, um Literatur zum Arschabwischen ...

Die Frage der Geschichte der Arbeiterbewegung

8 Jan , 2018  

Aber vielleicht erscheint uns die Situation auch nur paradox. Einen Akteur suchen, der diesen Entwurf verkörpern könnte – einen Menschen, eine Partei, eine Theorie oder auch eine „Klasse“ -, hieße erneut, die von der gesellschaftlich-geschichtlichen Enwicklung geschöpften Forderungen, die Erweiterung und Vertiefung, die von nun an jede revolutionäre Tätigkeit erheischt, ...

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 ...

A Conspiracy Against the World: Comments on Andrew Culp’s “Dark Deleuze”

6 Dez , 2016  

“We do not lack communication,” Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari wrote in What Is Philosophy?, their final joint text. “On the contrary, we have too much of it. We lack creation. We lack resistance to the present.”[1] During the course of an interview with Antonio Negri, Deleuze raised a ...
