No other country and no other period has produced a tradition of major aesthetic debate to compare with that which unfolded in German culture from the 1930s to the 1950s. In Aesthetics and Politics the key texts of the great Marxist controversies over literature and art during these years are assembled in a single volume. They do not form a disparate collection but a continuous, interlinked debate between thinkers who have become giants of twentieth-century intellectual history.

Das Stück, eine Parabel, zeigt am Einzelfall des Mädchens Shen Te das allgemeine Gesetz dieser Welt auf, daß es unmöglich ist, »gut zu sein und doch zu leben«. Drei Götter durchwandern die Welt auf der Suche nach einem guten Menschen. Sie wollen das Gerücht Lügen strafen, wonach die wirtschaftlichen Bedingungen auf Erden zu unerträglich seien, als daß die Menschen die Gebote der Götter zu befolgen vermöchten.

Aesthetics and Radical Politics

There has always been a strong connection historically between aesthetics and radical politics, and this is no less true for the global justice movement’s current preoccupation with cultural approaches to political action. The essays collected here seek to engage with past and present convergences between the theories and practices of artists and writers and the theories and practices of movements for radical social change. There is already a massive amount of literature on Marxist approaches to aesthetics, art and literature, and whilst recognising the usefulness of such approaches, the essays collected here attempt to engage with culture from other radical critical positions - whether they be anarchist, autonomist, ecological or otherwise. Such perspectives have often been overlooked historically, but it is arguable that they now more centrally influence the activities of radical artists and activists. As such, the perspectives of these essays, which are often drawn from or inspired by the practices of the current global justice movement, exhibit an exhilarating political and generational break with the suppositions of earlier radical theoretical approaches to cultural critique.

Dissensus: On Politics and Aesthetics brings together some of Jacques Rancière's most recent writings on art and politics to show the critical potential of two of his most important concepts: the aesthetics of politics and the politics of aesthetics. In this fascinating collection, Rancière engages in a radical critique of some of his major contemporaries on questions of art and politics: Gilles Deleuze, Antonio Negri, Giorgio Agamben, Alain Badiou and Jacques Derrida. The essays show how Rancière's ideas can be used to analyse contemporary trends in both art and politics, including the events surrounding 9/11, war in the contemporary consensual age, and the ethical turn of aesthetics and politics. Rancière elaborates new directions for the concepts of politics and communism, as well as the notion of what a 'politics of art' might be. This important collection includes several essays that have never previously been published in English, as well as a brand new afterword. Together these essays serve as a superb introduction to the work of one of the world's most influential contemporary thinkers.

Die Dialektik des Mythos

Category: Philosophy

Page: 210

Das Hauptwerk des russischen Philosophen Aleksej Losev (1893-1988) wird hier erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung vorgelegt. Die Besonderheit dieser Schrift liegt darin, daß Losev dem dogmatischen Anspruch, mit dem der dialektische Materialismus auftrat und seine Widersacher unerbittlich verfolgte, eine strikt rational argumentierende philosophische Analyse der Funktion und Bedeutung des Mythos für alle unsere Weltbezüge entgegensetzt. Sie zeigt zweierlei auf: 1. Jede Aussage über das Wirkliche basiert auf dem Mythos; 2. Keine Aussage über das Wirkliche darf sich folglich zu Recht über konkurrierende bzw. abweichende Aussagen über das Wirkliche unter Berufung auf einen unbedingten Geltungsanspruch erheben.

»Der erste Säulenheilige der Twitter-Sphäre« Nina Pauer, Die Zeit Ein Kompendium utopischer Negation: Neue Texte von Eric Jarosinski Eric Jarosinski ist ein Phänomen. Unter seiner Kunstfigur »NeinQuarterly« twittert er seit einigen Jahren Aphorismen in 140 Zeichen. Mit riesigem Erfolg. Mittlerweile hat er über 100.000 Follower auf der ganzen Welt. Jetzt hat er ein Buch geschrieben. Dieses besonders gestaltete Buch ist ein Unikat, in Form und Inhalt. Es vereint kurze, pointierte philosophische Texte zu den wichtigen Themen des Lebens. Über die Abgründe der modernen Existenz. Gegen den Pflicht-Optimismus, gegen die Dauer-Selbstoptimierung. Jarosinski spielt souverän mit der Sprache der Werbung, mit Slogans und Small-talk-Versatzstücken. Er mischt sie mit Witz und einer Liebe zur deutschen Sprache selbstironisch zu einzigartigen, tiefgründigen oder einfach nur witzigen Botschaften. »Nein ist nicht No. Nein ist nicht Yes. Nein ist Nein.« »Ich hasse Twitter! Es sollte verboten werden – mit einer Ausnahme: NEIN von Eric Jarosinski. Der einzige Grund, der Twitter rechtefertigt.« Slavoj Žižek

Aesthetics and Subjectivity

From Kant to Nietzsche

Contemporary philosophy and literary theory are based upon German philosophy from Kant onwards. Drawing on recent German theory, the author reconsiders the path of German philosophy from Kant to Nietzsche, in relation to consciousness, aesthetics and language. He provides interpretations of Kant, Fichte, the early Romantics, Schelling, Hegel, Schleiermacher and Nietzsche, telling a different story of modernity to the one current in many areas of the humanities. The book traces the beginnings of modern debates on aesthetics and politics, as well as the origins of modern hermeneutics, paying attention to the significance of music in modern philosophy.

The Missed Encounter of Radical Philosophy with Architecture

The Missed Encounter of Radical Philosophy with Architecture brings together a respected team of philosophers and architecture scholars to ask what impact architecture has over today's culture and society. For three decades critical philosophy has been in discourse with architecture. Yet following the recent radical turn in contemporary philosophy, architecture's role in contemporary culture is rarely addressed. In turn, the architecture discourse in academia has remained ignorant of recent developments in radical philosophy. Providing the first platform for a debate between critics, architects and radical philosophers, this unique collection unties these two schools of thought. Contributors reason for or against the claim of the "missed encounter" between architecture and radical philosophy. They discuss why our prominent critical philosophers devote stimulating writings to the ideological impact of arts on the contemporary culture - music, literature, cinema, opera, theatre - without attempting a similar comprehensive analysis of architecture. By critically evaluating recent philosophy in relation to contemporary architecture, The Missed Encounter of Radical Philosophy with Architecture presents a thorough understanding of the new relationship between architecture and radical philosophy.
