  • Our Sovereign Others: Phantasms, Heidegger, Animality
    • Abstract: <p>By Ryan C.P. Fics</p> The question, that was the question of the seminar, remains entire: namely that of knowing who can die. To whom is this power given or denied? Who is capable of death, and, through death, of imposing failure on the super- or hyper-sovereignty of Walten?Imust begin with a reluctant response to this question—I don’t know. In The Beast & the Sovereign, Volume II, Derrida writes that, “Saying ‘I don’t know’ about fantasy and revenants is the only way to take them into account in their very effective power” (137).1 Thus, similar to Robinson Crusoe, who reluctantly (and perhaps confessionally) wrote in his journal, “I know not to this Hour, whether there are any such Things as real Apparitions, Spectres, or walking of ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Individuated Embodiment and Action: Interrogating Roberto
           Esposito’s Negative Self
    • Abstract: <p>By Antonio Calcagno</p> Roberto Esposito is one of Europe’s leading political philosophers. His considerable body of thought is significant for scholarship in political science, sociology, literature, and philosophy (Campbell). As his work becomes better known in the Anglo-American world through translation, more attention is being paid to his specific intervention in the field of biopolitics. In addition to his scholarly work on such figures as Niccolò Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Hannah Arendt, and Simone Weil, one could identify two central concerns that animate Esposito’s more recent philosophy. First, there is the changing notion of sovereignty as it develops from its modern form to its more recent incarnations in Western ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Democracy, Climate Change, and Environmental Justice
    • Abstract: <p>By Matthias Fritsch</p> In particular in the context of the environmental crisis and justice for future people, the concept and practice of democracy, like modernity generally, has frequently been accused of presentism, the favouring of the present at the expense of the future. Derrida’s democracy-to-come contests both the metaphysics and the politics of this presentism, and hence may contribute to a rethinking of environmental and intergenerational justice. In this essay, I pursue democracy’s presentism by suggesting that dominant layers in the democratic legacy conceptualize death as the endpoint of life: both so that death does not really affect life while living (it’s merely the end of it), and so as to conceive of death as a point ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Love, Life, Death, and Survival
    • Abstract: <p>By Diane Enns</p> You are living in symbiosis with the disease.Go away and continue to do so.In the course of a long period of reflection on the death of a love, I read, simultaneously, two extraordinary texts by philosophers dying of cancer: Gillian Rose’s memoir, Love’s Work, and Jacques Derrida’s last interview, Learning to Live Finally. These texts could only come from the dying; more manifesto than meditation, they rail against what Derrida calls the rapidly shrinking period of deferral. There is a raw urgency to their pronouncements, and a refusal of what Rose calls “repose.” Life is lived in the theatre of the agon, in revel, on the edge, as love is also lived. For neither life nor love are exceptional, Rose writes; “To ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Adapting Venice: Intermedial Relations in Visconti, Sebald, and Kafka
    • Abstract: <p>By Russell J.A. Kilbourn</p> Venice, where all that is cheerful and bright, free and light, has only served as a face for a life that is dark, violent and unrelentingly functional, the city’s decline has left behind a merely lifeless stage-set, the mendacious beauty of the mask.What place better sums up the paradox of “a matter of lifedeath” than the city of Venice, depicted in Andreas Pichler’s 2012 documentary, The Venice Syndrome, as already well on its way to becoming a veritable ghost town in the next fifteen years? “Venice” is a fluid construct, its identity determined by the medium in question. Whether in painting, literature, photography, or film, however, Venice figures consistently as one of Europe’s strangest cities. For centuries ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Phantasmatics: Sovereignty and the Image of Death in Derrida’s
           First Death Penalty Seminar
    • Abstract: <p>By Gwynne Fulton</p> Ever since the camera was invented in 1839, photography has kept company with death.Death has long been theorized as structurally intrinsic to temporal and ontological considerations of photography—Susan Sontag: “All photographs are memento mori” (Photography 15); Roland Barthes: “Death is the eidos of [the] Photograph” (15); André Bazin: photography “embalms time” (14). But photography also registers real, physical deaths in all their concrete historical specificity. Crucially, the image of death focuses questions concerning the role of photography in the formation of the juridical-political authority of state power, while at the same time serving as a locus of critical resistance in revolutionary politics. The ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Lost in Liminal Space: Amnesiac and Incognizant Ghosts in Korean Drama
    • Abstract: <p>By Sung-Ae Lee</p> The interest of Asian media audiences in ghosts, the undead, and the non-human has been evident in the region’s major film producing countries since the early 1990s, and has been a recurrent focus in television drama. In this essay, I focus on television drama series, and on two series in particular—Arang and the Magistrate (Arangsattojeon) and Soul (Hon)—and on the narrative script they share with other series and films.1 I refer to this script as “the Arang-script,”2 since it has been developed as adaptations of the folktale about Arang, a tale which pivots on the murder of a young woman (sometimes one of two sisters), and which is often blended with either a spectral amnesia or a spectral incognizance script.3 ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Dying Alive
    • Abstract: <p>By Kas Saghafi</p> Somewhere in the middle of Session 5, almost at the mid-point of the second year of his ten-week seminar The Beast & the Sovereign, which turned out to be his last, Derrida provocatively declares: “If I say ‘Robinson Crusoe was indeed “buried alive,” he was indeed “swallow’d up alive”,’ you would not believe me” (Beast II 127). He insists that, contrary to what readers of the novel would claim, “it is true, that really is the story [récit], the story itself, not what it tells [raconte].”1 It really did happen to him. Robinson Crusoe was indeed buried alive. Derrida here makes a distinction between the conscious phenomenality or representation and the fantasmatic content (128). Using classical phenomenological ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Mourning as the Origin of Humanity
    • Abstract: <p>By Françoise Dastur</p> Since the beginning of human history and even in the most archaic societies, human beings have always been conscious of the difference that separates them from other living beings, as shown for example by the mere fact of wearing clothes or painting and sometimes deforming their bodies in accordance with specific rituals. In Greek philosophy man has been defined as a zoon logon ekhon, as an animal possessing logos, a word that should not be immediately translated as “reason,” as was the case in the standard definition classical metaphysics has given of the human being as animal rationale. The Latin word ratio means calculation, whereas logos comes from the verb legein, which means to gather, to put together, and ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: <p>By Dawne McCance</p> This special Mosaic issue, the second of three conference proceedings issues, collects papers presented at the A matter of life death conference held at the University of Manitoba from October 1-4, 2014. Most of the papers have been revised, some lengthened, into publishable essay form and, as always, we are grateful to contributors for their cooperation and more than a little proud to print their fine work.The issue opens with Dr. Françoise Dastur’s conference Keynote Address, “Mourning as the Origin of Humanity.” Against still prevalent modes of thinking that elevate humans above animals, usually by focusing on something animals “lack,” Dastur, with particularly rich references to the Western philosophical ... <a href="">Read More</a>
