Crisis

Crisis

CRITIQUE TODAY

Call for Papers

http://materializmidialektik.org/category/revistajournal/

Editors: Frank Ruda & Agon Hamza

The International journal of political philosophy, Crisis and Critique, announces a call for papers for its second issue, which will be devoted to the notion of critique today.

To criticize, in the original Greek meaning (krinein), is the act of drawing a line of demarcation. Such a critical act introduced with the same move a hierarchy between the two sides of this very line. Thus, to criticize meant to decide for and to give preference to one of two sides of a choice that was constituted by the very act of criticism. To criticize thus also implied the very emphasize of a choice that would not have existed without the critique.

In 1858 Karl Marx wrote to Lasalle that his Capital is “at once an exposé [Darstellung] and, by the same token, a critique of the system.” Today it is a widely shared contention that a concept of critique through presentation and Darstellung, any critique of political economy has to be either renewed such that it is still apt to perform its peculiar criticism of the contemporary world or that it has to be revamped such that its unhindered actuality comes to the fore.

These two takes on the notion of critique – and there are many possible others – provide sufficient ground to raise a banal but obvious question: where does one stand today with regard to critique? The second issue of Crisis and Critique seeks to address this question with regard to philosophy and political practice, contemporary critical analysis of capitalism and its structural effects.

In this issue, we want to address questions such as:

–      critique as a negative activity: a negative determination of certain activities, practices, orientation in thinking
–      critique as an overcoming of the limits of the possibilities imposed by contemporary forms of capitalism
–      critique of ideology versus discourse analysis
–      renewals of critique and critiques of critique
–      the return to Marx via return to the critique of political economy

Articles should be sent in English. The maximal length is 9000-10.000 words.

Submissions should be sent to: editor@materializmidialektik.org

The deadline for submission is May 30, 2014

ISSN 2311-5475

See: http://materializmidialektik.org/category/revistajournal/

Turkish BookTHE ENEMY WITHIN: THE SECRET WAR AGAINST THE MINERS

30th ANNIVERSARY EDITION!

By Seumas Milne

“The definitive account of the strike—the best book on the Thatcher era.” – Naomi Klein

“A terrifying, frightening indictment of the British establishment.” – Owen Jones

See: http://www.versobooks.com/books/1655-the-enemy-within

————–

Margaret Thatcher branded the leaders of the 1984–85 miners’ strike “the enemy within.”

In this classic account, Seumas Milne reveals the astonishing lengths to which her government and its intelligence machine were prepared to go to destroy the power of Britain’s miners union. In this 30th anniversary edition new material brings the story up to date with further revelations about the secret war against organized labour and political dissent, and the devastating price paid for the Thatcher administrations onslaught by communities across Britain.

TRISTANO

By Nanni Balestrini

——————-

This book is unique as no other novel can claim to be: one of 109,027,350,432,000 possible variations of the same work of fiction. A love story with infinite possibilities

AVAILABLE NOW: http://www.versobooks.com/books/1518-tristano

——————-

Inspired by the legend of Tristan and Isolde, Tristano was first published in 1966 in Italian. But only recently has digital technology made it possible to realize the author’s original vision. The novel comprises ten chapters, and the fifteen pairs of paragraphs in each of these are shuffled anew for each published copy. No two versions are the same. The random variations between copies enact the variegations of the human heart, as exemplified by the lovers at the center of the story.

The copies of the English translation of Tristano are individually numbered, starting from 10,000 (running sequentially from the Italian and German editions). Included is a foreword by Umberto Eco explaining how Balestrini’s experiment with the physical medium of the novel demonstrates ‘that originality and creativity are nothing more than the chance handling of a combination’.

——————-

“The emotional highs and lows of the story are all the more touching for being framed within Balestrini’s subtle, understated language.” – Juliet Jacques, NEW STATESMAN

http://www.newstatesman.com/culture/2014/02/nanni-balestrinis-tristano-love-story-100-trillion-possible-plotlines

“Balestrini’s experiment focuses on attacking the twin myths of the creative genius and culture as property.” – RHIZOME

“Goodbye Gutenberg. Many alternative ways of spreading the adventure of literature are emerging. This exercise by Balestrini is absolutely central.” – LA STAMPA

“Finally the historical impasse between literature and new media… turns into an opportunity to create something radically new.” – Aldo Nove, IL SOLE 24 ORE

“Balestrini has created with Tristano a kind of poetry of the language … promoting language to the role of protagonist, that is of hero, and where in traditional novels language voices the hero’s thoughts and actions, in this new Tristano language voices itself and celebrates its wide number of opportunities and movements.” – Angelo Guglielmi, L’UNITA

“The most impressive feat of publishing in ages.” – BLACKWELL’S OXFORD

——————-

Nanni Balestrini was born in Milan in 1935 and was a member of the influential avant-garde Gruppo 63, along with Umberto Eco and Eduardo Sanguineti. He is the author of numerous volumes of poetry, including ‘Blackout’ and ‘Ipocalisse’, and novels such as ‘Tristano’, ‘Vogliamo Tutto’, and ‘La Violenza Illustrata’.

During the notorious mass arrests of writers and activists associated with Autonomy, which began in 1979, Balestrini was charged with membership of an armed organization and with subversive association. He went underground to avoid arrest and fled to France. As in so many other cases, no evidence was provided and he was acquitted of all the charges.

He currently lives in Rome, where he runs the monthly magazine of cultural intervention ‘Alfabeta2’ with Umberto Eco and others.
