La retirada de lo jurídico

This paper analyzes the juridical closure in the work of M. Foucault. In the first place, it presents the connection between “Right” and “Power” from the 16th to the 19th centuries in Europe. An analogy is drawn between this connection and the dejuridization in the work of Foucault, both at the historical and the methodological level. In the next place, a question concerning the withdrawal around the Right is outlined, as well as the re-contextualisation of the subject in texts written during the seventies. Furthermore, the notion of “flagrant offense” is reviewed, as well as its connection with the “neutrality”, even in the idea of Popular Court. Finally, we discuss the bond between the philosopher’s post-juridical stand and 20th century neoliberal stands. Leer Mas

Jean-Luc Nancy. Hacia una ontología ecotécnica para un ‘giro material’ del mundo

In this paper I work on some theses of Jean-Luc Nancy that aim to show how the Cartesian dualism on which our tradition seems to settle can be read as an ontology of the in-between. This ontology should release the body of the shackles of the mind, opening a space in which the corporeality can acquire its own entity, one that is not subordinated to the ‘soul’. Based on this reading, Nancy’s writing can be considered as a renewed materialism, articulated on the notion of touch and on a sensual twist of sense. This will allow, in turn, to understand the contemporary world as ‘ecotechnics’ and to apprehend bodies in their extension and spacing. Leer Mas

Archivo, memoria, política

The question about the archive is inseparable from the question about memory: one leads to the other, and reciprocally. This paper tries to distinguish both questions by reflecting on the links between each one of them and what is usually referred as politics. This entails reflecting, ultimately, on the notions of archive and memory as determinants of politics as such. In regard to the unique relation between these concepts, the policies undertaken on their behalf and the State, we will address emblematic texts of Jacques Derrida in order to draw some tentative conclusions from them.

Fantasmas que se cruzan. Política y mesianismo en Walter Benjamin y Jacques Derrida

This paper aims to define certain discountinuing continuities between Benjaminian and Derridean philosophies regarding the topic of messianism and its application in political thinking. We consider that it is this re-invention of the messianic and this new application of messianism in political philosophy that make possible the abandonment of traditional attempts to think a relation of subordination (foundation) of politics to theology, to open up the possibility of thinking theology as providing –within a line of thought initiated by the Schmittian tradition– certain figures that could allow us to think the movement of the political, its renewal and the need to underline the provisory character of all positivity.
