Thesis 11 was good enough to publish, after quite some time in the pipeline, the essay that Brian Connor and I wrote on Rancière’s politics. You can find it here under Writings.
The Subject of Politics
David Roberts writes in his introduction
The question common to the papers in the present issue is that of the subject of politics, more exactly, the revolutionary subject, the counter-revolutionary subject, and the political subject as such. The theorists are European and the focus, with the exception of one paper on the contemporary French philosopher Ranciėre, is the European political crisis from the early twentieth century through to the interwar years.
What constitutes the modern political subject, and how can this postulated individual participate in, be determined by, and rebel against, political regimes? This collection of essays approaches these questions from different perspectives and locales. They engage with the traditions of emancipatory politics and critical theory as well as contemporary theoretical forms of understanding. David Roberts’ lucid introduction is highly recommended for the browsing reader.
