Truth in the time of the corona crisis

: BIOMAKT: The Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben has had several controversial proposals about dealing with the corona crisis. Agamben states that the media handling of the corona crisis in some perverse way has a similarity with the commercial advertising. And warns against a new, despotic security society.

Permanent state of emergency?

corona: Are the European authorities truthful about how long the measures will last? Because you can not lock in a population for 12-18 months, before a vaccine has been developed?

The road to true anarchism

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

AGAMBEN: The archeology of religion, art, politics, and capitalism is not a search for any kind of origin – but a search for a foundation that tears past notions to the root.

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. 

The Agamben and the Ethics of Abstinence

Giorgio Agamben: Community to come

: The community to come is a learned, rich, complex and sometimes obscure text. Here and there it borders on the mystery: Agamben empties the ram of a patriarchal God the Father with one hand and re-establishes with Spinoza the divinity of all things with the other, before pulling it all back into the profane, and then holding the "solution." a trembling aura, ahead of us.
