by Aaron Aquilina at Phenomenological Reviews. Generally good but skip quickly past the discussions of homo noumenon in Kant.
Month: February 2018
Sloterdijk in the New Yorker
Here. Forget the philosophy: he has friends that come with him to get his drivers’ license renewed? Is that a thing one does?
To restart as an open access journal (it’s one of the few that I can say I have read cover to cover most issues, though it was odd, given its politics, that it was behind a paywall), and its archive is now open access as well.
Balibar, Fanon, Black Internationalism, and more
Covered in an excellent issue (an invigorating set of readings for the morning) of Viewpoint Magazine (Issue 6) on the topic of imperialism.
John Lechte’s overview of Kristeva’s work
At the TLS.
A Second Edition of Jeff Malpas’s Place and Experience…
Comes out next month. It has a new preface by Ed Casey and important new discussions that make it worth a look, even if you have the first edition. The 1st edition was an achievement of securing a “spatial turn” in those borrowing on Continental thought and Jeff’s work always manages clarity without forsaking insightful renditions of the thinkers he’s engaging. I was glad to read a pre-publication version of it early last fall and it’s worth your time: before the realist turn (and outliers like Badiou), of course, every thinker in the Continental tradition can be thought as a thinker of place after Heidegger (what else is context in Derrida or a milieu in Foucault? Considerations of race or patriarchy in our given place and time?) and Jeff sets out the stakes well, while showing how a certain thinking of place can lead to the worst (blood and soil), there is nevertheless a democratic thinking of place towards which his thinking points.
