A revolutionary defeat is in fact always divided into a negative part (deaths, imprisonments, betrayals, loss of strength, fragmentation), which is often very obvious at the time, and a positive part, which usually takes a long time to emerge (a tactical and strategic reckoning, a change of action-models, the invention of new forms of organization).

  1. Paulo Jorge Vieira, como já estou enjoado da idolatria geral em relação a A.B. (entre as minhas várias ‘marmeleiras’ devo ter uns doze livros desse gajú, e prefiro os que são sobre ‘números’, esse que citas hei-de lê-lo nos intervalos de de ver uma cagada chamada ‘Nude Nuns with big guns’, sobre o “comunismo” axo que estamos conversados…, um gajo também o direito de se rir um pedacinho…), ‘atão como ia dixendo já não posso com as reverências, ponto/contraponto, ou como diria o Kandinsky, Ponto, Linha, Traço.

    Jacques Rancière, Steven Corcoran – Dissensus: On Politics and Aesthetics (2010)

    capa da ed. inglesa:

    Publisher: Continuum 2010 , 230 Pages , ISBN: 1847064450

    This is a brand new collection of Jacques Ranciere’s writings on art and politics.
    “Dissensus: On Politics and Aesthetics” brings together some of Jacques Ranciere’s most recent writings on art and politics to show the critical potential of two of his most important concepts: the aesthetics of politics and the politics of aesthetics.
    In this fascinating collection, Ranciere engages in a radical critique of some of his major contemporaries on questions of art and politics: Gilles Deleuze, Antonio Negri, Giorgio Agamben, Alain Badiou and Jacques Derrida.
    The essays show how Ranciere’s ideas can be used to analyse contemporary trends in both art and politics, including the events surrounding 9/11, war in the contemporary consensual age, and the ethical turn of aesthetics and politics. Ranciere elaborates new directions for the concepts of politics and communism, as well as the notion of what a ‘politics of art’ might be.
    This important collection includes several essays that have never previously been published in English, as well as a brand new afterword.
    Together these essays serve as a superb introduction to the work of one of the world’s most influential contemporary thinkers.

    About the Authors:
    Jacques Rancière taught at the University of Paris VIII, France, from 1969 to 2000, occupying the Chair of Aesthetics and Politics from 1990 until his retirement.
    Steven Corcoran is the editor and translator of Alain Badiou’s Polemics (Verso, 2006) and Jacques Ranciere’s Hatred of Democracy (Verso, 2007). He is currently completing his doctoral studies in Continental Philosophy at the University of New South Wales, Australia.

    Professeur, com esta me fui à te retrouver à Paris, tradução livre:
    «Todos os mistérios que conduzem da teoria ao misticismo, encontram a sua explicação na práctica racional e na compreensão dessa práctica» (cito de cor).

    Vas-y prof. !

    Göran Therborn – From Marxism to Post-Marxism (2008)
    Verso, 2008, ISBN 1844671887, 208 Pages

    Comprehensive history of the development of Marxist theory by major social theorist.
    In this succinct and panoramic work—both stimulating for the specialist and accessible to the general reader — one of the world’s leading social theorists, Göran Therborn, tackles the question of the trajectory of Marxism in the twentieth century and its legacy for radical thought in the twenty-first.
    Addressing the history of critical theory from the contemporary vantage-point characterized by postmodernism, post-Marxism and critiques of Eurocentrism, Therborn probes how the recent theoretical currents — including those of Slavoj Zizek, Antonio Negri, and Alain Badiou — have coped with the changed intellectual as well as political and economic contexts.
    In the light of these discussions, Therborn then proceeds to a global investigation of the parameters of twenty-first century politics.
    This will become the essential appraisal of Marxism in the modern age.

    Garin Dowd – Abstract Machines: Samuel Beckett and Philosophy after Deleuze and Guattari (2007)
    Publisher: Rodopi 2007-04-20, 320 Pages, ISBN: 904202206X

    Samuel Beckett and Philosophy after Deleuze and Guattari is an innovative approach to the relationship of the work of Samuel Beckett to philosophy.
    The study seeks to combine intertextual analysis and a ‘schizoanalytic genealogy’ derived from the thought of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari to explore a ‘becoming-philosophy’ of Beckett’s literary writing.
    The author focuses on zones of encounter and confrontation — spaces and times of ‘becoming’ — between Beckett, selected philosophers and Deleuze and Guattari.
    In the retrospective glance occasioned by that part of Deleuze and Guattari’s complex legacy which embraces their interest in the author, Beckett’s writing in particular effectuates a threshold hesitation which can be seen directly to impact on their approach to the history of philosophy and on their contribution to its ‘molecularization’ in the name of experimentation.
    Abstract Machines, with its arresting perspectives on a wide range of Beckett’s work, will appeal to academics and postgraduate students interested in the philosophical echoes so evident in his writing.
    The extent of its recourse to philosophers aside from Deleuze and Guattari, including, notably, Alain Badiou, renders it a timely and provocative intervention in contemporary debates concerning the relationship of literature to philosophy, both within Beckett studies and beyond.
