The road to true anarchism

Giorgio Agamben: Creation and Anarchy. The work of Art and the Religion of Capitalism

The Church and the military

Dmitry Adamsky: Russian Nuclear Orthodoxy. Religion, Politics, and Strategy

Not quite the same as kindness, gentleness, generosity, as goodness, as sweet, as soft, as the quality of velvet, as subtle secret

The fire as a source of life

Giorgio Agamben: The Fire and the Tale

: Georgio Agamben brings the reader on the trail of the essential questions about the transforming power of literature – the relationship to the mystery of life itself.
