Author: Roland Vegso
Publisher: Bronx : Fordham University Press, 2012.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The Naked Communist argues that the political ideologies of modernity were fundamentally determined by four basic figures: the world, the enemy, the secret, and the catastrophe. While the ""world"" names the totality that functioned as the ultimate horizon of modern political imagination, the three other figures define the necessary limits of this totality by reflecting on the limits of representation.
