  • Introduction
    • Abstract: Trauma, fortification, humans and machines, the grammar of myth and memory, the limits of state power, and the excitement and anguish of embodiment. This issue of Theory & Event (Volume 22, Number 4) takes up questions of sovereignty and the unconscious, exploring how visions of individual and territorial mastery continue to struggle against alternative accounts of nonsovereign forms of social organization and governance.In "Nuclear Sovereignty," Michael Hart returns to the threat of nuclear war, which in the latter half of the 20th Century was held to be the primary issue of international politics: a logic which, taken to its underlying conclusions, would likely eradicate humanity. Where, Hardt askes, has this ... Read More

  • More Than a Hashtag: Excitement, Anguish and the Semblant of #MeToo
    • Abstract: #MeToo irrupted on screens in October 2017. This moment generated what many have regarded as an 'exciting' debate in popular media about sexual harassment and violence against women by men. Such apparent excitement hinges on an assumption that #MeToo has galvanized women into a global feminist movement with the power to generate juridical and socio-cultural effects through the act of 'calling out' men who perpetrated these acts. This essay shows how we could understand such excitement in terms of Lacanian jouissance and discusses how #MeToo works as an example of the affective transformation of power. #MeToo also pivots off a different, but not unrelated, affect to excitement: that of anguish. Articulations of, and ... Read More

  • Cyborgian Self-Awareness: Trauma and Memory in Blade Runner and Westworld
    • Abstract: "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."The closing scene of Blade Runner reads as the last will and testament of an artificial life form preparing to die. While Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford)—whose job as a "Blade Runner" is to hunt down and "retire" (kill) non-docile replicants—hangs from the side of a building, Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) testifies to the hardship of what it means to be a replicant.1 Faced with the choice to either let Deckard (who recently killed Batty's friends and his lover) die, or to save him, Batty chooses ...

  • Nuclear Sovereignty
    • Abstract: Since the first atom bombs were dropped, enlightened scientists, scholars, politicians, and activists have warned of the irrationality of nuclear armament and the mortal threat it poses to humanity and the life of the planet.1 Today, in fact, the risks of intentional and accidental nuclear strikes and even all-out nuclear war remain as high as ever. Although when the Soviet Union collapsed "we believed that the danger of nuclear annihilation had gone away," maintains William J. Perry, secretary of defense in the Clinton administration, "the danger of some kind of a nuclear catastrophe today is actually greater than it was during the Cold War."2 And yet, in recent decades public consciousness of nuclear dangers has ...

  • The Myth of What We Can Take In: Global Migration and the "Receptive
           Capacity" of the Nation-State
    • Abstract: The next ship can turn around and go back where it came from because our limit has been reached.This essay draws out affinities between psychoanalytic notions of fortification and contemporary strategies for framing migration as a critical condition requiring national defense. In doing so, these reflections make perceptible the lineaments of a bio-cultural myth that underlies and (silently) authorizes the discursive construction of the "European refugee crisis"—a catachresis that, improper though it is, nevertheless generates lethal reality-effects.In order to dissolve the violence that this rubric perpetuates, both practically and epistemically, it is necessary not simply to dismiss it as yet another instance of ...

  • An Underwater World of Walls: Machine Sensing, Maritime Sovereignty, and
           the Aesthetics of Undersea Surveillance
    • Abstract: The apparent contradiction between the globalization of the world economy and the proliferation of border walls has been widely noted.1 The unprecedented flow of people, information, and capital across the world has been matched by the spread of material barriers designed to restrict these same flows. Indeed, as climate change redraws the boundaries of the habitable earth and potentially displaces millions of people, the border wall as such appears poised to become the signature architectural form of the twenty-first century. What has received less scholarly attention, however, has been the simultaneous emergence of militarized maritime borders.2 The edges of the ocean are also being fortified.Essential components ...

  • Creating a City to Resist the State: The Seattle General Strike of 1919
    • Abstract: At 10 a.m. on February 6, 1919, in Seattle, Washington, 60,000 union members affiliated with the American Federation of Labor (AFL), plus 3,500 members of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), declared a general strike and walked off the job. Another 40,000 workers stayed home, perhaps in solidarity with the striking workers, or perhaps because the shutdown of the city's transportation system made it impossible to get to work. One hundred and ten unions voted to embrace the general strike, including the Milk Wagon Drivers, Musicians, Hog Carriers and Laborers, Waitresses, Teamsters, Plumbers, Hotel Maids, Longshoremen, Housepainters and Decorators, and many more. The striking workers and their families ... Read More

  • Is There a Right to Sleep'
    • Abstract: The insecurity of night, which is everybody's daily concern, is pressed into an uneven sociological terrain. While some enjoy gated communities with private guards enforcing quiet and ensuring empty streets at night, others occupy neighborhoods strewn with violence, the police enforcing an unwritten curfew while spreading insecurity and fear. The perception of household safety has been correlated to quality of sleep, physical health, and educational success, negatively affecting many within poorer, non-white neighborhoods.1 There, sleep is secured through the moral economy of violence, which is made easier for some by shelter (though not women denied sleep by their abusers), and more difficult for those forced to ...

  • Symposium Introduction: Myth and Politics in Furio Jesi
    • Abstract: This symposium gathers original translations, commentaries, and unpublished documents related to the rich and multidisciplinary oeuvre of Italian mythologist and critical theorist Furio Jesi (1941–1980). Although relatively unknown in Anglophone circles, Jesi casts a long shadow in the world of Italian letters. In spite of his tragic death at the young age of 39, the autodidact from Turin left behind him an immense body of work, including some 20 monographs, as well as novels, articles, translations, poetry, and journalism. While it was his many books on German literature and poetry that would eventually land him a position at the University of Palermo in 1976 (in spite of his never completing any formal ... Read More

The book—which I would like to entitle Secret Germany—is intended to study the survivals of certain mythical images in nineteenth- and twentieth-century German culture.2I feel the need to know your opinion on this introductory "programmatic declaration" of sorts, for you have lived the problems explored therein with the consciousness [coscienza] of a scholar of myth, as well as a non-passive spectator of modern European civilization. In particular, your participation in Thomas Mann's spiritual trajectory leads me ... Read More

    • Abstract: Editor's Note to "A Reading of Rimbaud's 'Bateau ivre'"Jesi opens his important early essay Le connessioni archetipiche1 with these words: "In examining folkloristic materials from various sources, and especially compositions of popular literature, one perceives the constant presence of 'common places': motifs that are repeated in the different forms through which we apprehend each story, at times remaining formally unaltered, at times being modified." In the note to his 1970 poetry collection, L'esilio,2 he claims "the usability of each poetic 'precedent' as a repertoire of anonymous common places." And finally, in a letter to Giulio Schiavoni dated 31 October 1972, he writes: "I'm in the middle of an essay on ... Read More

  • Cruel Festivals: Furio Jesi and the Critique of Political Autonomy
    • Abstract: (They cannot grasp one another who lived together in remembrance.)With the publication in 2014 of Furio Jesi's Spartakus: the Symbology of Revolt, to be followed later this year by Secret Germany and Time and Festivity, Anglophone readers are now in a better position to appreciate the breadth and complexity of one of the most luminous and penetrating theoretical oeuvres of the Italian twentieth century.2 A major theme in Jesi's work during the decade between 1968 and 1977 concerns the way in which not only the presence, but also the withdrawal of authentic mythic experience can obstruct liberatory social and political transformation. It is only an apparent paradox that in a post-mythological age, wherein the ... Read More

  • On the Impossibility of Saying "I": Epistemological paradigms and poetic
           paradigms in the work of Furio Jesi
    • Abstract: I have before me a translation of the Haggadah read during the Jewish seder, the ritual meal celebrated in the first two evenings of Pesach. Every gesture and every word of the participants, just like every element of the meal—from the matzot, the unleavened bread that recalls the sudden flight that left no time for the bread to rise, to the maror, the bitter herbs symbolizing slavery—in some way evoke an aspect, detail, or event from the day that Yahweh freed the chosen people from Egypt, the fourteenth day of Nissan, exactly 400 years after the birth of Isaac. But the festival of Pesach does not only look back to the past. According to rabbinic teaching "in Nissan they were redeemed and in Nissan they will be ... Read More

    • Abstract: Editors note: This article is an excerpt from Andrea Cavalletti's introduction to the new volume, Time and Festivity, published by Seagull Press.The essays presented in this book are among Furio Jesi's least known, or among those few that have so far remained unpublished—but they are also some of the best and tightest he ever wrote. We have chosen to collect them here in the attempt to offer the reader a faithful image of the great scholar, and especially of what was perhaps the most fruitful period of his production, following the break with his teacher Károly Kerényi and the writing of Spartakus. The Symbology of Revolt,1 which he completed in December 1969. This period was crucially marked by the introduction of ... Read More

  • Myth and Right-wing Culture in Furio Jesi
    • Abstract: Through a foggy landscape, a man strolls down a wooded country road blanketed with snow. Bearded and long-haired, he wears a large white lambskin coat. His face is framed by chunky glasses, and he speaks slowly and clearly, with expressive pauses. The film, a digital copy from a VHS tape, is fuzzy, dreamy, almost unreal. Black trees divide the visual field, and the screen is awash with white and blue light as the camera follows the man—a specialist in silence, reflection, and inwardness—across the frozen ground on which he steps, a large and empty psychic space.It is rare footage of the Italian critic, historian of ideas, political thinker, and scholar Furio Jesi (1941–1980).1 He appears in L'uomo europeo, VIII ...

  • The Myth of Spartacus and the Tradition of the Oppressed
    • Abstract: This article analyzes the role of myths and symbols in modernity through the lens of two historical events separated by almost two thousand years: the slave revolts of ancient Rome and the Berlin uprising of January 1919. It argues that the summoning of the name of Spartacus by the Spartakusbund—a radical-left group operating in Germany during World War I—operated a distinctive break with the historical imagination of the modern workers movement, revealing a distinctive understanding of revolutionary politics. Inspired by the work of Nicole Loraux and Jacques Rancière, the article engages with the concept of "anachronism" in order to conceptualize a history of class struggle that is not tied to a linear conception ...

  • The Ignoble Savage: Racism, Myth, and Anthropological Machine
    • Abstract: You civilized peoples, who are for ever speaking foolishly about Savages and Barbarians—soon, as d'Aurevilly says, you will have become too worthless even to be idolaters.The marks and mediations of political turmoil in the writings of Furio Jesi are at once patent and anything but mechanical. In 1968, interpellated by the May events, he registered the rift with his erstwhile mentor in the study of mythology, the Hungarian scholar Karl Kerényi, in words of reverberant intensity:If fate dictates that I should be forced to address these words to the person whom I've considered my teacher ever since adolescence, it means the times are particularly dark. I doubt, what's more, that they'll brighten before first ... Read More

  • Bring Out Your Dead: Corpses and the Limits of Sovereign Power in James
           Martel's Unburied Bodies
    • Abstract: In a story recounted by Cicero, Diogenes the Cynic, a philosopher known for his eccentric behavior (he supposedly lived in a barrel near the Athenian Agora and roamed the city with a lantern during daylight in search of an honest man), is said to have told his followers to avoid burying him upon his death. He preferred that they toss his corpse over the city walls to let nature take its course. Seeing their horrified reactions, Diogenes advised them to leave a staff near his dead body so that he could drive away the wild beasts that would inevitably consume it. "But how can you do that," they asked, "for you will not perceive them'" "How am I then injured by being torn by those animals," Diogenes replied, "if I ... Read More

  • Violence and Freedom: Canonical Interventions and Heretical Reading
    • Abstract: The sheer volume of literature on Niccolò Machiavelli and Jean-Jacques Rousseau makes writing on them a daunting task. Yves Winter in Machiavelli and the Orders of Violence and Jimmy Casas Klausen in Fugitive Rousseau succeed brilliantly in combining a deep knowledge of these thinkers, of the secondary literature, and of historical context to intervene in contemporary theoretical discussions of violence, politics, slavery and freedom. They draw on Machiavelli and Rousseau to parse out the meaning of these concepts, frequently treated as monolithic and ahistorical.Contemporary treatments of canonical European theorists can fall into two camps: those that further canonize them and those that dismiss them as ...

  • Along the Edges of Law's Empire: Kahn's Islands of Sovereignty
    • Abstract: What does it mean to inhabit the peripheries of a world made by liberal empire' Leviathan, a metaphor long favored by theorists of modern statecraft and sovereignty, originally denoted a fearsome creature of the sea. This monstrous being was depicted in the famous frontispiece of Hobbes's masterpiece as a figure, looming over city and country, that bound a body of subjects. Curiously, the watery origins of Leviathan receded in this representation of sovereignty even though the seventeenth century marked the overseas expansion of the Crown. This absence has marked modern political theory: the enclosure and governance of land and its inhabitants defines state-making and sovereignty, whether sovereign power is cast in ... Read More

  • Strange Bedfellows
    • Abstract: In Producers, Parasites, Patriots, Daniel Martinez HoSang and Joseph E. Lowndes meet the challenge of interrogating a US right-wing racial politics still in the making. Their book aims to account for how race figures and functions for the "new right-wing politics of precarity" in the context of the United States' "New Gilded Age." Such an aim, the authors insist in the spirit of black Marxist theory and studies of neoliberal identity politics, necessitates thinking of race and class as mutually constitutive. Lowndes and HoSang offer roughly three stories of the surprising racial turns the US right has taken under neoliberal capitalism. First, they argue that the US right is justifying the decreasing material ... Read More
