Hypotheses on Communism. Notes for a Discussion / 2 Ipotesi sul comunismo. Note per una discussione / 2
Fabio Raimondi
Scienza & Politica : per una Storia delle Dottrine , 2012, DOI: 10.6092/issn.1825-9618/3204
Abstract: The essay reconstructs the political discourses of Alain Badiou and Slavoj i ek, concerning communism and its actuality for the contemporary debate. Both philosophers have a main role in the global philosophical scene in which they maintain different but partially complementary positions. Except for some philosophical divergences, they both affirm the necessity to reopen a theoretical effort, which could eventually develop an idea of communism and communist practices able to face new challenges imposed by capitalistic globalization. Badiou intends to spread the idea of communism through a theoretical and political procedure called "ideation", which should create new militants and followers to the communist revolutionary event. According to this view the State remains the main enemy to this possibility. i ek, on the contrary, seems to look with favour on the Lacanian dynamic of denegation which could recreate the necessary conditions for the repetition of the communist revolution; which, this time, instead of ending up in tragedy or in farce, should produce a sort of enlightened new statism. Il saggio ricostruisce i discorsi politici di Alain Badiou e Slavoj i ek a proposito del comunismo e della sua attualità all'interno del dibattito contemporaneo. I due filosofi, protagonisti della scena filosofica globale, sostengono posizioni diverse ma in parte complementari che si attestano, di là dalle differenze filosofiche, nel ritenere indispensabile la riapertura di uno sforzo teorico che elabori un'idea del comunismo e delle pratiche comuniste all'altezza delle sfide imposte dalla globalizzazione capitalistica. Il proposito di Badiou è ricominciare a diffondere l'idea di comunismo attraverso una procedura teorica e politica chiamata "ideazione", che dovrebbe produrre i nuovi militanti fedeli all'evento rivoluzionario. Mentre per Badiou lo Stato è il nemico principale di questa possibilità, i ek al contrario sembra puntare sulla dinamica lacaniana della denegazione per ricreare le condizioni per una ripetizione della rivoluzione comunista che non finisca né in tragedia né in farsa, ma produca una sorta di neostatalismo illuminato.
Gianni Vattimo on Culture, Communication, and the Move from Modernity to Postmodernity
Matthew E. Harris
Journal for Communication and Culture , 2012,
Abstract: Gianni Vattimo, the Italian philosopher and politician, has argued that the end of colonialism and imperialism and the rise of the society of mass communication have contributed to the emergence of the postmodern. Modernity‘s unilinear conception of history is no longer possible in the face of multiple cultures and subcultures coming to the microphone across countries in the West. This article considers this view in the light of the problematizing comments made by the philosopher Slavoj i ek on the nature of culture – that it is something people do not take seriously and therefore people do not regard science as a culture. If science is apart from culture, then modernity can continue as the grand narrative of the increasing rationalisation of humankind as shown by the emancipating effects of science expressed through technology. Resources from Vattimo‘s broader philosophical programme are drawn upon to argue that not taking culture seriously is a postmodern condition and that science is cultural.
The Spirit (of our Time) is and is not a Bone.

Cosmos and History : the Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy , 2007,
Abstract: Slavoj i ek and Graham Priest are two philosphers who have a unique place within respectively postmodernist and formal-logic philosophy. They both defend Hegelianism within the two domains that could historically be characterized a anti-Hegelian. We characterize their formal Hegelianism through respectively the style form of chiasm and the inclosure schema. In addition to this, we make concrete the two movements in which they are situated on the basis of two prominent philosophers: Jacques Derrida and Bertrand Russell. We outline the two Hegelians#39; criticism of these figures and in this way we come to a refinement of the analogy and difference between the them. Finally, we explain how they could be considered in relation to their movements in general.
Revista de ciencia política (Santiago) , 2011, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-090X2011000100001
Abstract: for more than two decades, the slovenian philosopher slavoj ?i?ek has been 'exploding' the world of academy with a reflection that aims to present the possibility of a 'truly political act' that constructs its own conditions of possibility in the way of event. this is an act that would apparently be "impossible" to imagine in a given situation but that it would be nonetheless present as possibility, in the inconsistency that would characterize any symbolic register. this article seeks to trace the genealogy of such an act which ?i?ek has conceived as inscribed in a given situation, but radically new at the same time. in this regard, it is stated that the ?i?ekian act is inseparable from a materialist ontology of an 'all-non-all'or an inconsistent all, defended by ?i?ek. hence, the features of the act that this article identifies: its "impossibility", the traversal of fantasy and its militant subjective constitution, only become intelligible when they are interpreted in view of this materialist ontology. there would be the key that would permit to decipher the main premises of the radical political act (and its polemic theoretical and political derivates). this article ends by reflecting on the normative consequences that a radical political act, in this way conceived, would have to a general notion of democracy.
A Conceptual Model of Somali Jet Based on the Biot--Savart Law

中国物理快报 , 2008,
Abstract: We study the relationship between thermal conditions on the earth bottom boundary and the formation of Somali jet based on the Biot--Savart law and the data from National Centres for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). As the radiation from the Sun gradually moves from the southern meridian, the temperature on the surface of Somali Peninsular and Arabic Peninsular gradually increases. During the same period the surface temperature of the Northern Indian Ocean increases much slower. It is shown that this increase of the temperature difference between the land and sea is inductive to the formation and development of Rayleigh--Benard convection and leads to the increasing relative vorticity strength between positive and negative vertical vortices over the land and sea. According to the Biot--Savart law, increase of vorticity strength will correspondingly induce the horizontal velocity. A pair of positive and negative vorticity fields over the two Peninsulars and the sea surface is effective in forming and maintaining this current. This mechanism is referred to as the `Somali suction pump'. It draws air continually from the Southern hemisphere and releases it at the coastal area of Somali.

Abstract: Lacanian materialism, initially related to politics philosophy, has been gradually expanding its limits, reaching now the cultural studies and being an alternative to literary analysis. It is an humanistic thought, which, however, criticizes the limitations of traditional Marxism, adding, yet, the importance of reading literary texts by the concept of the Unconscious, which is structured as a language. The main thinkers of this philosophy are Slavoj i ek and Alan Badiou and, here, we use mainly the concepts of the first of them to analyze the short story “Amor”, by Clarice Lispector, focusing specially the possibility of connecting the plot of the short story to an encounter with the traumatic Lacanian Real. Therefore, we analyzed the plot and structure of the short story chosen searching for evidences which could be related to the rupture or instability of Symbolic structure and entrance in the Real. We noticed that the very structure of the short story opens the possibility to this interpretation, being constructed in three different parts, which could be related to the Symbolic balance, the instability occasioned by the contact with Real and the necessary restructuring of Symbolic level.
Revolution, Event and Theory of the Act . Arendt, Badiou and i ek
Ricardo Camargo
Ideas y Valores , 2010,
Abstract: This article explores the question of the political meaning of the term “revolution” and the relation that has been established and should continue to be established between revolution and freedom. To this effect, the article examines some of the main proposals set forth in this respect by three contemporary thinkers, Hannah Arendt, Alain Badiou and Slavoj i ek, with occasional references to Michel Foucault and Antonio Negri. The proposal argued for here is that Arendt’s notion of revolution and the notions of event and act put forth in the radical political theories of Badiou and i ek intersect and necessarily supplement one another.
Political Subjects: Decision and Subjectivity from a Post-Fundational Perspective
Martín Retamozo
Ideas y Valores , 2011,
Abstract: The problem of decision and of political subjects was addressed in the field of 20th century political philosophy by authors such as Carl Schmitt, Hannah Arendt, and Jacques Derrida, who related it closely to the concepts of sovereignty, freedom, and contingency. The works of Ernesto Laclau and Slavoj i ek have currently turnedto the issue of decision in order to address the constitutive spects of the political. In a context dominated by deconstruction, post-Marxism, and post-structuralism,the article inquires into the elation between decision and political subjects in a contemporary setting, examining in depth the difference between subjectivity,subjectivization, and subject.

Abstract: G hkan Ak i ek wins the poetry award of Ministry ofEducation Children Books Contest with the poem file titled Bulutlar rtmese Günesi. After the publication of the file, he is deemed worthyto the Children Literature Award of Writers Union of Turkey in 1995.The poet publishes Bülbül Deresi Siirleri in 1996 and ocuklara lümYak smaz in 2001. Ak i ek catches childish expression in his poemsand leans toward the neglected unconscious cited by Jung which wasestablished over against modern world under the pressure of thewisdom and conscious. He deforms the rational and established worldwhen he does that just like the symbolists and surrealists. Even so in his poets people witness that Kant’s thought of view the beautiful onewill comfort the life and the thought of the feeling of aestheticpleasure will not only individual’s inner world but also contribute toharmony of the relationship between individual and nature.
