Provides an original view of the potential for a radical democratic politics today that speaks not only to the Italian situation but also to a broadly international context.

A grammar of the multitude for an analysis of contemporary forms of life by Paolo Virno ( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When they rebel against the state," Hobbes wrote, "the citizens are the multitude against the people". But the multitude isn't just a negative notion, it is a rich concept that allows us to examine anew plural experiences and forms of nonrepresentative democracy. Drawing from philosophy of language, political economics and ethics, Virno shows that being foreign, "not-feeling-at-home-anywhere", is a condition that forces the multitude to place its trust in the intellect. In conclusion, Virno suggests that the metamorphosis of the social systems in the West since 1980 is leading to a paradoxical "Communism of the Capital".Drawing from philosophy of language, political economics and ethics, Virno argues that the category of "multitude", elaborated by Spinoza, is a far better tool to analyse contemporary issues than the Hobbesian concept of "people", favoured by classical political philosophy.Globalization is forcing us to rethink some of the categories - such as "the people" - that traditionally have been associated with the now eroding state. Italian political thinker Paolo Virno argues that the category of "multitude", elaborated by Spinoza and for the most part left fallow since the 17th century, is a far better tool to analyse contemporary issues than the Hobbesian concept of "people", favoured by classical political philosophy. Hobbes, who detested the notion of multitude, defined it as shunning political unity, resisting authority and never entering into lasting agreements
