  • La Réception nord-américaine de Folie et déraison de
           Foucault

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Alain Beaulieu
      Abstract: This article aims at understanding the North-American reception of Foucault’s Folie et déraison. After showing how American concep-tions of social control facilitated the integration of Foucauldian thinking in North-American academia, I examine the ways by which the advocates of anti-psychiatry and the historians of psychiatry read Folie et déraison, which became emblematic for French Theory. I then present various Anglo-American critiques of Folie et déraison and defend the persistence of a “Foucauldian spirit” against the sci-entifization of psychiatry. All this allows for an assessment of the leg-acy of Folie et déraison in the North American debates.

  • Contribution to a Hermeneutical Pedagogy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Donald Ipperciel
      Abstract: This article argues that philosophical hermeneutics, despite its onto-logical character, can inform higher education teaching in a mean-ingful way. After discussing theoretical aspects of philosophical her-meneutics, focus will turn to pre-understandings and historically ef-fected consciousness. These concepts will lead to hermeneutics’s transformative nature, with the notion of openness serving as a com-mon thread. The review of three further concepts of philosophical hermeneutics—hermeneutical experience, authentic dialogue, and Bildung—will provide insight into openness as a vanishing point without being a culmination. Parallels to Mezirow’s method of trans-formative learning will be drawn and the concept of Bildung, central to philosophical hermeneutics, will be considered through the Hum-boldtian lens to better extract its practical implications, which lay beyond Gadamer’s theoretical focus. Finally, the last section will ce-ment the applicative intent of the article by presenting concrete teaching practices that ô€”low from philosophical hermeneutics.

  • Gerda Walther and the Possibility of Telepathy as an Act of Personal
           Social Mind

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Antonio Calcagno
      Abstract: The phenomenologist Gerda Walther posits the possibility of a new social act, which she terms telepathy. It is marked by an intimate in-terpersonal union in which ego and alter ego become capable of sharing in the identical lived experience, though distant from one an-other. Here, there is no fusion or collective identiô€”ication; rather, in-dividuals, though they live the experience and mind of the other, never lose or transcend their own individuation. Unlike the act of em-pathy, there is no analogical transfer. This article defends the possi-bility of a restricted sense telepathy. The author argues that four conditions must be fulô€”illed for telepathy to occur: recognition of a social drive; a partially willed act of mind that results in the assump-tion of a certain stance, but it also comes upon us as an experience; constitution of subjects as persons marked by a “fundamental es-sence”; and I-splitting.

  • Sommes-nous « insensibles » au ravage en cours' De « l’écologie
           sensible » à la lutte contre les dispositifs de désensibilisation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Léna Silberzahn
      Abstract: A growing body of work approaches the current environmental dev-astation from the perspective of a “crisis of sensitivity”: our inability to care for the living around us is said to be a failure of perception and feeling. The article explores several versions of the narrative of modern insensitivity through a study of Günther Anders and Jane Bennett, highlighting the limitations of such approaches. I suggest the notion of a desensitization apparatus to specify and politicize the diagnosis of a “crisis of sensitivity”.

  • Paraontology: Oskar Becker’s Philosophy of Race and the Ironies of
           Ahistorical Phenomenology

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Benjamin Brewer
      Abstract: This paper reconstructs Oskar Becker’s phenomenology of race, a project he called “paraontology.” For Becker, a fervent National So-cialist, paraontology provided a phenomenological account of “na-ture”—a realm of ahistorical essences encompassing both the “su-per-historical” truths of mathematics and metaphysics and the “sub-historical” forces of “blood and soil.” The impetus for this reconstruc-tion is the re-emergence of this term in contemporary Black studies, where it is used to problematize ontology’s usefulness for thinking black life. This paper asks what the possibility of such an iteration shows about Becker’s project and its investment in non-historical repetition, arguing it reveals a profound disavowal of the historical at the heart of Becker’s project rather than a phenomenological dis-closure of the natural.

      Authors: Dalitso Ruwe
      Abstract: While essential work in Africana philosophy that illuminates the per-ils of Western constructs of race and racism has been laid out, schol-arship is yet to excavate genealogies of Africana critiques of Western slavery as distinct philosophical themes that can contribute to the understanding of slavery from the vantage of the subjugated. This article is a call for more theorizations of such genealogies.

  • Forms of Death: Necropolitics, Mourning, and Black Dignity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Norman Ajari
      Abstract: To be Black means to have ancestors whose humanity has been de-nied by slavery, colonialism, neo-colonialism, and segregation, as well as by many theories elaborated in order to justify and intensify these modes of domination. To be Black also means having to face the enduring legacies of these systems and theories, which predomi-nantly manifest through overexposure to violence and death. Today, premature death and habituation to loss remain constitutive fea-tures of Black experience. Dignity, often de􀏔ined as the inherent value of every single human being, has been a core concept in ethics since Kant, at least. But in both philosophy and modern politics, the claim of respect for the dignity of people has coexisted with deep antiblack-ness. However, apart from the Western understanding of dignity stands another tradition. The concept of dignity is pervasive in Black radicalism, Caribbean philosophy, and African thought since the 18th century. This article draws inspiration from the legacy of these thinkers to elaborate an ethics centred on the speci􀏔icities of racial-ized life.

  • The Invention of North-Africa

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mohamed Amer Meziane
      Abstract: This article sketches an archaeology of the racial divide between North Africa and “Black Africa” by examining how it belongs to the emergence of modern geography during the nineteenth century. It argues that the de-Africanization of North Africa is inseparable from the racial identiô€”ication of “Africa proper”—to quote Hegel’s word—with a dehumanizing concept of Blackness. The second part of the article tries to move beyond archaeology in order to analyze coun-ter-geographies of decolonization. It does so by focussing on the ways in which the continental Pan-Africanism of the Algerian revo-lution has deployed a practical criticism of the divide between North and Black Africa through Fanon.

  • Negritude, Universalism, and Socialism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Souleymane Bachir Diagne
      Abstract: It is important to read afresh today the meaning of the Negritude movement without reducing it, as is often the case, to a counter-es-sentialism in response to the essentialism of the discourse of coloni-alism; to realize that Senghor, Césaire, and Damas were ô€”irst and foremost global philosophers, that is, thinkers of the plural and de-centred world that the Bandung conference of 1955 had promised. Thus, their different perspectives converge as the task of thinking a humanism for our times based on a non-imperial universal, a univer-sal of encounter and translation founded on equality. And, conse-quently, a socialism that is, in its different translations, a force of emancipation, but also of humanization and spiritualization of the earth. That task is still ours.

  • What Life Is Not: Aimé Césaire as Phenomenologist of Domination

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Vincent Lloyd
      Abstract: What does “life” mean in the protest slogan “Black Lives Matter”' This article draws on a close reading of Aimé Césaire’s Cahier d’un retour au pays natal to offer an answer to this question. In his poem, Césaire carefully examines the ways racial and colonial domination distort life. He identiô€”ies various false accounts of life complicit in domination, and he points toward an alternative. The article com-pares Césaire’s alternative to accounts of life put forward by Gilles Deleuze and Michel Henry, suggesting that Césaire pushes his cri-tique in a similar direction, but goes further.

  • Pluralism, Structure, and Autonomy: On the Political Philosophy of
           Hountondji

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Thomas McGlone; Jr.
      Abstract: In this article, I analyze a concept central to the work of the Beninese philosopher Paulin Jidenu Hountondji: pluralism. Hountondji’s plu-ralism consists of both a theoretical pluralism, which emphasizes the importance of plurality and debate within philosophy and science, and a politico-economic pluralism, which arises in opposition to the dominative tendencies of cultural nationalism and the capitalist world-system. I contend that at the heart of both Hountondji’s theo-retical and politico-economic pluralism rests a concept of negative pluralism, a political principle derived from Hountondji’s immanent critique of his own historical conjuncture. I conclude that Hountondji’s negative pluralism offers a distinct and compelling ac-count of plurality as neither innately nor instrumentally ideal. In-stead, Hountondji’s negative pluralism allows us to identify, through a critique of existing political structures, forms of political compul-sion and economic exploitation which function as obstacles to uni-versal emancipation.
