  • Editor's Column: Whose Reason' Whose Authority'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In a conversation with Elisabeth Roudinesco, Jacques Derrida questions a certain authoritative tradition of reason, gesturing toward an alternative, skeptical discourse, a deconstructive psychoanalysis, marked by his preference for a Freudian reason shot through with the aporetic:I prefer in Freud the partial, regional, and minor analyses, the most venturesome soundings. These breaches and openings sometimes reorganize, at least virtually, the entire field of knowledge. It is necessary, as always, to be ready to give oneself over to them, and to be able to give them back their revolutionary force [puissance]. An invincible force. Finally, whatever the inequalities of development, the 'scientific' incompleteness ... Read More

  • In the Beginning Was the Logos: Reason and Revolution

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: But before being reined in and tamed by the kosmos and order of truth, logos is a wild creature, an ambiguous animality.Socrates in the Apology says that the jurors who voted to convict him and will shortly vote to kill him probably won't believe it when he says it is not an option for him to remain silent, that he cannot live a quiet life. It is not that Socrates is especially chatty. He is not your common gossip or bavard. It is a specific kind of conversation he has in mind. "I say that this is the greatest good for a human being, each day for arguments/words to be made about excellence (poieisthai logous peri aretēs) and the other things about which you hear me conversing (dialegomeou), examining myself and ...

  • Psychoanalytic Reason and the Non-Governable of Modern Subjectivity

      Abstract: There is a revolutionary-becoming which is not the same as the future of the revolution, and which does not necessarily happen through the militants. There is a philosophy-becoming which has nothing to do with the history of philosophy and which happens through those whom the history of philosophy does not manage to classify.The modern subject seems to be in crisis for many reasons. Not least in relation to neoliberalism and global capitalism provoking a modification of a previous notion of the subject as autonomous. With the neoliberal subject, whose docility and ability to bend constitute a new norm that excludes the ones who are not flexible enough, as Catherine Malabou puts it, the standard humanist narrative ...

  • The Slumber of Reason

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I broach the topic of reason by way of a somewhat predictable framing of the issue, namely the pitting of reason against its putative other—madness or unreason. Foucault, in History of Madness, went about matters in that way. In the 1961 preface he wrote, "in our culture there can be no reason without madness, even though the rational knowledge we have of madness reduces it and disarms it by lending it the slender status of pathological accident" (xxxii). Keen to avoid "translating" madness into the rational knowledge to which madness would be opposed, Foucault resiles from a translation that would privilege the rational and medical discipline of psychiatry, and hence elicit not a history of madness, but a history ...

  • Aphorism, System and Reason: The Case of Theodor Adorno's Minima Moralia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The term "aphorism," especially when loosely applied, may evoke a very wide range of diverse and even contradictory notions with regard to the relation between the genre and reason—something, of course, one might argue, that should be expected with respect to any genre of discourse with such a long history. In this regard, one might, for instance, be led to evoke moral and/or religious maxims, with their assertive shortness seeming to be connected with a strong and even dogmatic belief—or a wish to believe—in our capacity of rationally formulating strict and direct laws. At the same time, nevertheless, one might also be reminded of La Rochefoucauld's Maxims from 1640, which seeks to explode such confidence in ... Read More

  • The Critique of Dead Reason: Baudrillard on Biopolitics after Capitalism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For a brief moment in Jean Baudrillard's philosophical career, death and the dead were the centerpieces of his philosophical system. The occasion was the publication of Symbolic Exchange and Death (L'échange symbolique et la mort) in 1976, which is his most comprehensive and impressive philosophical work. Whereas prior to the publication of Symbolic Exchange and Death, the philosophical world of Baudrillard was one that was filled with objects, in this work his philosophical world becomes one that is filled with death. After the publication of Symbolic Exchange and Death, the two interests—objects and death—were arguably combined in an anti-metaphysics that asks why is there nothing rather than something. In this ... Read More

  • Humanist Unreason

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Twenty-some years ago, late in graduate school, I was reading (as one does) a book by my advisor, Jane Gallop. Because I didn't have much money for books, I was doing so in a copy borrowed from the university library. The book included, as one might reasonably expect given the words printed on its cover, the text of Gallop's Reading Lacan. It also included, not so expectedly, significant marginalia, left there by an earlier reader of the book.This reader thus became my companion in reading Reading Lacan, a book that is about how (it feels) to read another person's work. I read the book, and I watched this person read and react to the book. This essay is about that double reading.The first chapter of Reading Lacan ... Read More

  • The Reason of Mysticism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In a lecture he gave at the Royal Institute of Philosophy in London on March 4, 1966, under the title "The Logic of Mysticism," John Niemeyer Findlay concluded: "Mysticism is a logical matter." He immediately added a proviso: "but a logic is only acceptable if it finds the sort of empirical material to fit it, and the right sort of material must include worlds and lives stricken with less dispersion and diversity than our present life" (182). Despite brushing aside the transcendental foundations of logic, Findlay expresses, perhaps better and with greater clarity than anyone else, an aspiration to accommodate mysticism on the traditional terrain of philosophy. While the 1966 lecture places an emphasis on logic, in ... Read More

  • Reason in the Thinking of Mourad Wahba on Ibn Rushd

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Ibn Rushd was the grand jurist of Cordoba, al-Andalus, in the twelfth century. He lived and worked during the Islamic Golden Age, which was simultaneously the European Dark Ages. In addition to being the Caliph's physician, Ibn Rushd was also a philosopher known for his commentaries on Aristotle and his original contributions to Islamic jurisprudence. His two most important books are Fasl al-Maqal (The Distinction of Discourse) and Tahafut al-Tahafut (The Incoherence of the Incoherence). Scholasticism, a philosophical movement that led to the Renaissance and Enlightenment, was primarily inspired by Ibn Rushd. The birth of European universities in places like Oxford and Paris during the thirteenth century occurred ... Read More

      Abstract: In the opening few minutes of the 2021 Italian television series Zero, the show's protagonist, Omar, played by Giuseppe Dave Seke, winds himself through the family's apartment in Milan towards his bedroom. As his father begins to speak with him in Wolof, Omar, with little interest in engaging with his father's familial concerns, takes up an internal monologue: "My dad and I speak different languages, but that's not the reason we don't understand each other. And it has nothing to do with the words. It's about what is being said." After Omar winds himself through the forenoon commotion of the apartment, Omar takes to his room to draw "manga with black heroes." With Afropop playing in the background, Omar's inner ... Read More

  • The Biographical Novel as Scandal: A Retrospective on the Condition of
           Twentieth-Century Knowledge and Aesthetics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The biographical novel is a literary form that names its protagonist after an actual historical figure, and while there were some notable biographical novels in the nineteenth century, such as Walter Scott's Rob Roy (1817), Mary Shelley's Valperga (1823), Bettina von Arnim's Die Günderode (1840), Herman Melville's Israel Potter (1855), and Gustave Flaubert's The Temptation of St. Anthony (1874), it was in the twentieth century that the genre was fully legitimized and even came to dominate. Noteworthy is that five biographical novels could easily be numbered among the most scandalous works of the century, thus placing them in the company of James Joyce's Ulysses (1922), D.H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I was a young writer and I wanted to take off. Somewhere along the line I knew there'd be girls, visions, everything; somewhere along the line the pearl would be handed to me.Much is said in the West today about a return to totalitarianism or Maoism in China. This is seen in the press and among politicians.1 But this is clearly loose and imprecise. Whatever one may think of current policy in China, it is clear that the culture remains open to world literature, that the work of dissident, foreign writers like Kerouac are not only available, but are in fact promoted. As we will show in this paper, this was not always the case. The cultural policy of today's China is nothing like that of post-revolutionary China or ... Read More

  • Medical Surveillance and Docility in Jerry Pinto's Em and The Big Hoom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Penned by Jerry Pinto and published in 2012, Em and The Big Hoom tells the story of Mendes family. The unnamed narrator of the novel and his sister Susan call their mother Em and their father The Big Hoom. The book chronicles Em's tryst with bipolar disorder and in so doing, foregrounds the medical surveillance that Em is subjected to by her family in order to turn her into a docile body. This paper explores how medical surveillance of the mentally ill effects such docility by making their bodies knowable, disciplined and productive. A study of this theme in Em and The Big Hoom has long been overdue despite a range of scholarship being available.1 I simultaneously intend to examine forms of resistance to this ... Read More

      Abstract: Since the start of the millennium, many Middle Eastern writers of a younger generation have struggled to gain critical attention and grow their readership because of their determination to tackle controversial social issues tied to gender and sexuality instead of making war and conflict their primary focus. This study will analyze the works of two Middle Eastern authors in particular, Alexandra Chreiteh and Fadi Zaghmout from Lebanon and Jordan respectively, who have produced cutting-edge novels that have changed the literary scene in the region by putting gender and sexuality at the forefront in an original and successful attempt to force a necessary conversation about taboos and oppressive elements of their ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: From the beginning of his career, Wole Soyinka has told the truth about environmental crimes, yet only a handful of critics have responded to this clear and consistent theme in his work. One of these is Lawrence Buell. In The Future of Environmental Criticism, Buell recognizes the ecological depth and insight in A Dance of the Forests, observing that this play has touched history at least once since it was written in 1960. As Buell points out, A Dance "eerily foreshadows the victimization of Nigeria's Ogone peoples by big oil interests," including the state-sponsored execution of author and activist Ken Saro-Wiwa (47). Buell also invites readers to ponder A Dance more deeply: "Environmental criticism has only begun ... Read More

  • Unwritten Writing: Deconstruction and the Folklore of Dice Games

      Abstract: Epigram, ep'i-gram, n. lit. a writing upon a monument; a short poem on one subject […] [Gr. epigramma—epi, upon, and gramma, a writing, from graphō, to write.]The subject of this study is a form of ambivalence. Trivial as it may be—and precisely because it is so trivial, common, dyed into the social fabric—this ambivalence will be located in a particular group of historical dice games. Yet for all its triviality, this ambivalence will also very quickly prove impossible to analyze, or even identify, in any straightforward way, not least because some of these games no longer exist. So much of what we now know of them is only reconstructed on the basis of fragments, legends, or third-hand histories, scattered sources ... Read More

      Abstract: Émile Zola's L'assommoir is Gervaise's novel as she negotiates her experience in the corridors of the faubourgs between the hospital and the abattoir. Gervaise's story begins when she arrives in Paris and finds herself abandoned at twenty years old by her lover and the father of her two sons. She resolves to make a life for herself and her children by working as a laundress. She marries a local roofer named Coupeau with whom she has a daughter named Nana. Together the couple works hard and succeeds in building a new home with a laundry service business. When Coupeau is injured at work falling from a rooftop, the accident sets in motion the inevitable decline of the family. Coupeau succumbs to the bottle and ... Read More

      Abstract: When, in 1990, Susan Sontag praised Machado de Assis as Latin America's greatest writer, and thereby relegating Jorge Luis Borges to second place, many readers wondered: From whence does this judgement come' Other questions, as yet unanswered, then ensued: How did the much celebrated U.S. writer and intellectual know about Machado' How familiar was she with Borges' What of their work had she read' When did she first become acquainted with their writing'The question of Borges, an international phenomenon since the early 1960s, when he began to be translated into English, is easier to answer since Sontag could hardly have not known about the great Argentine writer, who had already been hailed in Europe.

  • Unhappily Ever After: Hardy, Tess, and the Fairy Tale Manqué

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The words "fate" and "fairy" derive from the same Latin root, fatum. This etymology may surprise people today, who typically conceive of fairies as daintily benevolent and fairy tales as quick, well-trodden roads to happily ever after. But for centuries, fairies were known more for their unpredictability than anything else—such that they, like the fates, primarily represented forces beyond human understanding and control. The question of fate is important to the form of the novel, particularly of the realist novel: although of course the threads of all novels are subject to the spinning, measuring, and cutting of their authors, realist authors tend not to call attention to that fact. Victorian writers like Charles ... Read More

      Abstract: Yet the spirit of quest endures, unquavering, with stiff upper lip."Like people and schools of criticism, ideas and theories travel—from person to person, from situation to situation, from one period to another," says Edward Said (157). Such traveling creates new ideological ethos and historical contexts. Travelling theories, therefore, are dynamic as they transcend time, place, and language. Said argues that such traveling "necessarily involves processes of representation and institutionalization different from those at the point of origin" (157). They change in meaning according to where and when they are re-articulated, and as they are modified and tailored, they experience epistemological displacement and ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Art, claims critic and curator Nicolas Bourriaud, is "an activity consisting in producing relationships with the world with the help of signs, forms, actions and objects" (107). As he further explains, "[i]f a work of art is successful, it will invariably set its sights beyond its mere presence in space: it will be open to dialogue, discussion" (41). Such exchanges with artists and the objects they put forth for consideration invite viewers, Bourriaud argues, to participate in collaborative meaning-making projects and by the same token to co-create potential futures. For, as Jane Bennett makes clear in her turn, "[w]hile the smallest or simplest body or bit may indeed express a vital impetus, conatus or clinamen ... Read More

Among the hundreds of journalists and media outlets that covered the construction of the wall, an artistic intervention by the French photographer J.R., which consisted in the installation of a twenty-meters high photograph, stood out. The picture, which was a close-up of a two-year-old boy named Kikito, looking from above and seemingly touching with his hands the metal bars that delimit the border area, was placed as a response to the abolition of an immigration policy ...

      Abstract: In December 2019, a novel coronavirus outbroke in Wuhan. This new type of coronavirus soon developed into the Covid-19 pandemic and became one of the most disturbing global events in recent years. Since then, the Chinese government has been continuously practicing strict disease control upon the affected areas. However, the disease is more than pathological, and continues to gain a socio-political influence upon democracy and humanity. Under the regulation of the Covidcontrol policies, human life is supposed to be well-managed so as to be incorporated into a shifted governance which functions as a counter force against the paralyzing chaos brought by the pandemic. This inevitably raises the questions of how to ... Read More

Stanley fixed in Western minds what Africa was and still is today: a dark continent.

  • Rescue Me: On Dogs and Their Humans by Margret Grebowicz (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Because you know what they say Every dog has his dayThey say a lot of things about dogs. One of the more recent branches of literary and cultural theory is devoted to sorting out what is said about dogs in relation to what is said about humans. It is here that Margret Grebowicz's Rescue Me: On Dogs and Their Humans aims to make a contribution. And while her canine-centric subtitle is a challenge to those who view dogs from the perspective of the needs of humans, her work here never really fully establishes complete canine-centricity. Still, she is more attuned to the needs of dogs and their world-view than many philosophers and cultural theorists who write on this topic.Moreover, in spite of this subtitle, she ... Read More

  • The Class Matrix: Social Theory after the Cultural Turn by Vivek Chibber
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: To come to terms with capitalism as a mode of production is also, and necessarily, to address the class relations that help to expand and maintain its dominance in socio-economic life. In Marxism, such class formations are complex and contested, and from Marx onward analysis has looked to see how workers exploited by capitalism might overcome the latter in the process of producing new conditions of socialization and community. The Communist Manifesto hails this possibility, and for a good part of the twentieth century class-based anti-capitalism augured a world beyond capitalism. Today, however, capitalism seems not only more dominant but the class contradictions that signal its demise appear less recognized as ... Read More

  • The World in a Grain of Sand: Postcolonial Literature and Radical
           Universalism by Nivedita Majumdar (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When Fredric Jameson, at a 2012 lecture on postmodernism at the University of Helsinki, declared that "the resistance to universals is a struggle against hegemonic norms, which are thereby suppressive and exclusionary," he was not just condemning universalism as a colonial ideology, he was also endorsing the idea that universals can only be countered through an affirmation of 'cultural difference' as the guiding criterion for evaluating culture, identity, and history. Of course, this was not new or a novel revelation. Jameson was in fact echoing an idea that, since the early nineties, has been a defining feature in postcolonial theory, an idea canonized in the seminal postcolonial volume The Empire Writes Back ...

  • The History of Sexuality, Volume 4: Confessions of the Flesh by Michel
           Foucault (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When Volumes 2 and 3 of Michel Foucault's The History of Sexuality appeared in 1984, a publisher's insert announced the imminent arrival of a fourth volume, Confessions of the Flesh. The text was advertised as dealing "with the experience of the flesh in the first centuries of Christianity, and with the role played in it by the hermeneutic, and purifying decipherment, of desire" (vii). Foucault died in June 1984, and the promised fourth and final volume, scheduled to appear in October of that year, did not arrive. Daniel Defert, Foucault's longtime partner, had the unfinished manuscript placed in a bank vault where it sat for over three decades. Until now. After its long repose in the vault, Histoire de la ...

  • Hermeneutics as Criticism. Science, Politics, Race, and Culture by Lorenzo
           C. Simpson (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Hermeneutics has been seen as providing a "diplomatic" philosophical approach to resolving the thorniest of problems. Gadamer and Ricoeur both desire to be temperate in the approach to interpretive conflict, they appeal for tactful dialogue, and seek out common ground rather than further furrow the terrain where Difference is apparently un-bridgeable. But sometimes, the objection goes, hermeneutics is too placid, too reliant on dialogical scenarios that are philosophically fetching, but that are difficult to implement in practice. Hermeneutics is too bland in its account of Difference and it lacks a sharp—or radical hermeneutical—analytical edge. Faced with contemporary political and social problems, are the irenic ...

  • Science Fiction: Toward a World Literature by George Slusser (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This study attempts to trace the origins and themes of science fiction back to seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Western philosophy while placing its history within a framework of world literature that touches on German, Romanian, and Chinese permutations, but concentrates on delineating distinctive French, British, and American traditions. The work is based on a manuscript by George Slusser, which he was in the process of extensively revising at the time of his death in 2014. The published text was put together by Gary Westphal, who notes that he "employed the first version as its basis while integrating some of the contents of the second version by means of some minimal connective language" (xi). The task of ... Read More

  • The Pensive Image: Art as a Form of Thinking by Hanneke Grootenboer
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Pensive Image: Art as a Form of Thinking will enhance this author's status as a major figure in the area of image studies. A specialist in seventeenth-century Dutch painting, Hanneke Grootenboer is a former Oxford professor who now heads the art history department at Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Nether-lands. She is an accumulator of grants and accolades, among them an Erasmus Lectureship at Harvard. The merits of her current effort, The Pensive Image, include the potential applicability of its findings to virtually any context where images are central—e.g., poetry, fiction, film—and not just to painting of the Dutch "golden age," the author's primary purview.Given the magnitude of its implications ...

  • Desire and Infinity in W.S. Merwin's Poetry by Feng Dong (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: W.S. Merwin remains a singularity in American letters: a professional poet moonlighting at callings somehow higher than literature, a public poet growing taciturn and gnomic among the shadows of a semilegendary Polynesian hermitage. Part of the challenge of assessing Merwin's poetic career, including its critical fortunes, is the number of texts left behind at his death in 2019: some sixty volumes, according to Feng Dong in this 2021 monograph (134). In the book's introduction, Feng, of Qingdao University's English faculty, sketches the portrait of a poet whose iconic status is often at odds with critical sentiment deeming his work remote and obscure at best, cold and vacuous at worst. The formalism of Merwin's ... Read More

  • On the Inconvenience of Other People by Lauren Berlant (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Sex. Democracy. Life in common. In On the Inconvenience of Other People, Lauren Berlant attends to these and other of "life's good hard things" (170). We want these things, or want to want them, or have some sense that we should want them. But they are difficult. Messy. Things go to pieces in unexpected ways (or in entirely predictable ones). Previous works by Berlant, such as Cruel Optimism (2011), explored how peoples' relationships with the objects of their desire can work to frustrate the realization of that desire. With this newest book, Berlant proposes that we are drawn to inconvenient objects. They describe this as "an inconvenience drive—a drive to keep taking in and living with objects" that both vex and ... Read More

  • France/Kafka. An Author in Theory by John Hamilton (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Given the daunting enormity of existing scholarship on Franz Kafka, it can be hard to find a new angle or perspective. John Hamilton's recent contribution France/Kafka. An Author in Theory accomplishes this feat by offering us a beautifully multilayered take on the interrelations between Kafka's works and the French theorists of the twentieth century who studied them. The book is appealing not just as another brick in the research cathedral that scholars have built over the past century in honor of the acclaimed and notoriously hard to interpret writer, but more so because it ponders the many ways in which literature and theory interact; and what is more, Hamilton does so in a charmingly playful, yet deeply engaged ...

  • Flat Aesthetics: Twenty-First-Century American Fiction and the Making of
           the Contemporary by Christian Moraru (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The world is the objects, not their container. Christian Moraru puts this idea to meaningful critical use by articulating a "flat" literary aesthetics, one that flattens subjects to objects then views all objects as non-hierarchical beings existing on the same plane. From postmillennial storyworlds to politics, when viewed horizontally as object-arrays (matrices), what should become interesting for critics to reconstitute is the vibrancy of objects themselves, with no thing ("subtext," noumenon) "behind" them or their self-presentation. For Moraru, such "things" democratically include not only understood objects—doors, cellphones, instant coffee—but also material beings ("baby octopuses"), and entities such as ... Read More

      Abstract: Teaching in Times of Crisis. Applying Comparative Literature in the Classroom represents first and foremost a rich resource for understanding comparative literature's role in the classroom in order to provide students with a multitude of possibilities to comprehend different social and cultural contexts, as well as their own position in these locales. The book emphasizes different connections across time and space while being grounded by specific questions related to identity, social roles, political entanglements and historical development and provides the readers with innumerable examples drawn from novels, short stories, graphic novels, films, hip-hop music, and art installations. This underscores the purviews ... Read More

  • Pleasure Erased: The Clitoris Unthought by Catherine Malabou (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The word appears in a French text for the first time in 1575 and disappears by 1585. Freud famously theorizes it as a castrated penis. Lacan reduces its significance by asserting the primacy of the phallus. Derrida is silent on it despite his elaboration of the phallogocentrism of philosophical discourse. Foucault never mentions it in The History of Sexuality except to describe a monstrosity. Clitoridectomies and other forms of so-called "genital mutilation" persist around the world. Symbolic clitoridectomies persist in patriarchal cultures that confine female sexuality to the law of reproductive utility. As the "only organ whose sole purpose is pleasure," the clitoris exists as a site of material and symbolic ... Read More

  • Vinyl Theory by Jeffrey R. Di Leo (review)

      Abstract: "The idea of writing this book came to me a few years ago when I could not believe that records were making a comeback." This book begins with a delightful story about twelve vinyl recordings in the stereo player/radio cabinet of a middle-class family. At this point he gives few hints as to how his at-first naïve narrator will transition into a theory of technology and culture.The focus is his parents' huge stereo record cabinet which held no more than twelve vinyl record albums, including such works as the soundtrack to the film Doctor Dolittle and children's favorites like Christmas with the Chipmunks. But also on this underpopulated shelf lived a few early 'sixties records by Bob Dylan, the Beatles, Janis ... Read More
