  • The Argumentative "Logic" of Humor

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Logical mechanisms play a fundamental role in humor, especially in the "essentialist theories" (Attardo 2010, 49; Larkin-Galinanes 2017). In the Semantic Script Theory of Humor (Raskin 1985, 99), the humorous effect of a text is regarded as resulting from the opposition between two different scripts that are compatible with it. The detection of an incompatibility—between a state of affairs judged at the same time actual and inexistent, or normal and unexpected, or possible and impossible—is posited as a condition of a humorous text. This "logic" of humor was developed in detail in the General Theory of Verbal Humor (Attardo and Raskin 1991), in which the simple notion of opposition was analyzed considering the ... Read More

  • Benjamin's Rhetoric: Kairos, Time, and History

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The past is not alterable, but its necessity is not transparent.Recent work has expanded the analytic reach of kairos beyond its traditional limit: the timely deployment of arguments in public debate. Kairos now refers to a broad range of discourse forms and persuasive actions. (For a compact review, see Trappani and Maldonado 2018.) This expansion, however, has not been matched by a reevaluation of the temporal logic of kairos, which is still seen as located in teleologic time. This article uses Walter Benjamin's understanding of time as a way of refiguring kairos as a nonteleological relationship among past, present, and future. Benjamin provides a theoretical rationale for kairotic action that is distributed in ... Read More

  • The Essay and the Art of Interpretation: Caygill and Nietzsche

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The collection Force and Understanding: Writings on Philosophy and Resistance (2021), which I edited, brings together essays written by the British philosopher Howard Caygill over a period of almost thirty years. The scope of the pieces is striking. The figures discussed range from Kant, Hegel, Marx, and Clausewitz to Benjamin, Bataille, Arendt, Fanon, and Gillian Rose. Topics span the extinction of the Neanderthals, Gnostic cosmology, and Epicurean meteorology; modern genetics; NATO's Kosovo intervention; and Extinction Rebellion. Scientists Kepler, Maxwell, and Arthur Stanley Eddington share the pages with Kafka, Genet, the performance artist Stelarc, Greek anarchists, and the Black Panthers.The present forum on ... Read More

  • The Philosophical Essay

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: What makes an essay philosophical' The answer to this question may seem self-evident. It is given by the interplay of three elements: the content of the essay, its authorship, and its autonomy. In the first case we see that the essay is about a set of problems that are recognizably philosophical (the mind-brain relationship, the later work of Wittgenstein, or the tension between consequentialist and deontological claims in ethics). In the second, among the classifications of authorship created by the publishing industry, the philosopher has a recognizable role alongside the novelist, the poet, or the literary critic. Martha Nussbaum's Love's Knowledge, first published in 1990, has as its subtitle Essays in ... Read More

  • The Natural Philosophical Essay—Reflections on a Genre

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Walter Benjamin's aphorism from One Way Street—"These are days when no one should rely unduly on his 'competence.' Strength lies in improvisation. All the decisive blows are struck left-handed" (Benjamin 1996, 447)—eloquently captures the practice of the philosophical essay. Certainly Benjamin was a consummate exponent of ambidextrous writing, with his corpus distributed across the two "projects" of the Trauerspiel book and the incomplete study of the Paris Arcades orbited by a remarkable scatter of essays with subjects ranging from Goethe to children's toys and the experience of unpacking his library. Benjamin's practice as a philosophical essayist self-consciously departs from and develops the genre of the ... Read More

  • Beyond Settler Time: Temporal Sovereignty and Indigenous
           Self-Determination by Mark Rifkin (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A lot has happened in Indian Country recently: water protectors and the NoDAPL movement brought international attention to Native sovereignty and ongoing resistance to settler forms of violence against Indigenous ways of being; a settler public became aware of the MMIW movement and the ongoing assault on the lives of Indigenous women; an apology was given by executive order for a genocide that occurred in California and a Truth and Healing Council was created to investigate the historical relations between California Indians and the state of California; and Native identity is "complex" and certain people seek to profit from that complexity by duplicitously or erroneously claiming Native identity, to name a few. To ... Read More

  • Architects of Memory: Information and Rhetoric in a Networked Archival Age
           by Nathan R. Johnson (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The role of public memory in a digital information age beckons us to explore how information is stored, managed, and circulated throughout various networks. Engaging with questions of public memory allows us to meditate on how we and future generations have developed processes and methods of information management that shape how knowledge emerges today. In order to understand how public memory interacts with networks of information, we must look at the systems and technologies that store, manage, and make publicly accessible this information. Nathan R. Johnson's Architects of Memory: Information and Rhetoric in a Networked Archival Age serves as an important contribution to this task by historicizing the formation ... Read More
