La experiencia agónica del pensar: de Nietzsche a Derrida

The current work aims to show how philosophy can be conceived as an agonizing and endless experience of thinking that allows a positive appropriation of the past, that is to say of our rich and open philosophical tradition. Through the untimely thinking of Nietzsche, Heidegger’s Destruktion and Derrida’s deconstruction, I will try to establish the way in which philosophy opens itself, by a recreation of the past, to an unknown and potentially unlimited future of meanings, concepts and new ways of thinking.

Filosofía del arte y arte filosófico en Gilles Deleuze

Is there a Deleuzian aesthetics? This question is today the name of a debate perhaps opened by Jacques Rancière. In the present article we will not try to respond to it by yes or no, but to reveal the conditions of the problem and its solution. Is art an independent activity with no connection to other activities in Deleuze’s philosophy or is it inseparably linked with other spheres? Is the philosophical approach a discourse about art or an artistic discourse itself? These are the real questions we will intend to solve. Leer Mas

El pueblo que falta y el agujero de la democracia

In this paper, the author claims that radical political inmanentism, such as Deleuze’s and Spinoza’s in Deleuze’s reading, is not compatible with the project of vanguardism that authors as Negri, Hardt or Virilio, among others, have tried to justify departing from Deleuze. The author discusses the legitimacy of those readings and concludes that it is possible and much more plausible to think politics from a Deleuzian perspective as a project capable of legitimating a Maquiavelian democratic State.

El estructuralismo: ¿una destitución del sujeto?

In order to establish that structuralism is the moment that marks French philosophy in the second half of the XX century, the author arguments: a) that structuralism must be inscribed in the field of philosophy, even if some of the names that are related to this movement are non-philosophers, for philosophy is defined for its incorporation of that which seems strange to it; b) that what is considered as post-structuralism is already present in structuralism since its very beginning.
