Democracy against the state : Marx and the Machiavellian moment by Miguel Abensour( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the "Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right," the young Marx elliptically alludes to a "true democracy" whose advent would go hand in hand with the disappearance of the state. Miguel Abensourʹs rigorous interpretation of this seminal text reveals an "unknown Marx" who undermines the identification of democracy with the state and defends a historically occluded form of politics. True democracy does not entail the political and economic power of the state, but it does not dream of a post-political society either. On the contrary, the battle of democracy is waged by a demos that invents a public sphere of permanent struggles, a politics that counters political bureaucracy and representation. Democracy is "won" by a people forewarned that any dissolution of the political realm in its independence, any subordination to the state, is tantamount to annihilating the site for gaining and regaining a genuinely human existence. In this explicitly heterodox reading of Marx, Miguel Abensour proposes a theory of "insurgent" democracy that makes political liberty synonymous with a living critique of domination. -- Back cover
Utopia from Thomas More to Walter Benjamin by Miguel Abensour( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Utopia poses a question. Not simply in the sense of a problem to be resolved and at the same time eliminated . . . but in the sense that, within the economy of the human condition, utopia, the aim of social alterity of all social otherness is ceaselessly being reborn, coming back to life despite all the blows rained down upon it, as if human resistance had taken up residence within it." For the French philosopher Miguel Abensour, the fictional genre of utopia has provided thinkers and artists a fertile ground to explore for the past 500 years, both as a way to imagine new emancipatory practices of shared existence and as a tyrannical imposition of power. Here, Abensour's project is to examine the idea of utopia in two different but powerful moments in its trajectory: first, utopia's beginning, when Thomas More sought a path for justice through a world in transformation, and second, when utopia faced its greatest danger, the moment that Walter Benjamin called "catastrophe."--

Pour une philosophie politique critique itinéraires by Miguel Abensour( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in French and Spanish and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Se podría sintetizar la presente obra en el lema "pensar la y lo político hoy". Este Ensayo pretende ser la presentación en España de Miguel Abensour, una de las figuras más importantes del paisaje filosófico francés de los últimos treinta años. Sin agotar los caminos de pensamiento abiertos por su reflexión, este primer trabajo recopilatorio en español -estructurado en cuatro bloques: Itinerarios, Filosofía política crítica, Crítica del totalitarismo y La inagotable cuestión de la emancipación-, da razón del núcleo de la obra abensouriana y acaba con la injustificada ausencia de este discreto pionero" (From publisher)

La démocratie contre l'État Marx et le moment machiavélien by Miguel Abensour( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siamo condannati a un'alternativa, i cui termini sarebbero: o un esercizio moderato della democrazia, o l'antidemocraticismo classico? In tal caso, saremmo posti di fronte alla scelta seguente: o la democrazia potrebbe essere accettata e valorizzata a patto di praticarla con moderazione, per esempio riducendola allo statuto di quadro politico insuperabile - oppure non ci sarebbe alcun motivo di scegliere la democrazia ed eventualmente di salvarla in caso di pencolo; perché essa funzionerebbe come un'illusione e rivelerebbe di essere una forma di dominio tanto più perniciosa, quanto più nascosta sotto le apparenze della libertà. In tal senso, una delle molte qualità del testo di Marx del 1843 non è forse quella di aprire un'altra via, che permetta di sfuggire a questa alternativa e alle sue rigidità, formulando la domanda sulla "vera democrazia"? Prima ancora di sottomettere la democrazia all'esigenza della moderazione o di rifiutarla senza appello, occorre porsi una questione preliminare, e interrogarsi sulla democrazia come è in verità; scoprirne cioè le caratteristiche, che rendono inadeguate sia la soluzione della moderazione, sia quella del rifiuto, senza procedere in modo essenzialista, ma riflettendo sul destino della democrazia nella modernità

9 editions published in 1989 in French and German and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Utopie en questions( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in French and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'utopie n'est pas morte, nous voyons renaître aujourd'hui sa capacité émancipatrice. Pour apprécier son impact, théorique et expérimental, encore faut-il en restituer l'historicité : ce sera prendre la mesure du caractère intempestif des utopies, de leur aptitude à produire des discontinuités et des décalages dans la pensée de l'histoire. Prise entre réel et imaginaire, l'utopie échappe à toute catégorisation générique : c'est donc par regards croisés qu'il convient de l'aborder. En donnant la parole aux philosophes comme aux historiens et aux spécialistes de la littérature, ce livre entreprend de traiter l'utopie à travers la diversité des modes qu'elle revêt - de la fiction au modèle, de l'idéal à la critique du réel. Il s'agit de construire, obliquement, un processus original d'intelligibilité qui rende à l'utopie sa fonction d'ébranlement, par-delà le non-lieu ou le trop bon lieu des chimères rassurantes, garantes d'un ordre établi que l'utopie entend précisément déplacer."--Book cover

Hannah Arendt contre la philosophie politique? by Miguel Abensour( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selon l'opinion du jour, Hannah Arendt serait connue et reconnue pour avoir élaboré sur des grandes philosophies politiques du temps présent. Cette appréciation a pour défaut d'occulter l'hostilité déterminée d'Hannah Arendt à ce qu'il est convenu d'appeler "philosophie politique". Hannah Arendt a explicitement avoué qu'elle prenait toujours soin de mentionner l'opposition qui existe entre philosophie et politique. De là, sinon l'ouverture d'un réquisitoire, tout au moins la mise en lumière de ce qui fait obstacle à une fusion harmonieuse entre philosophie et politique
