Shelves: فلسفه

کتاب از دو بخش تشکیل شده: 1) "معاصر چیست؟" اثر جورجو آگامبن - 36 صفحه - ؛ 2) "آگامبن و بدیو: برای اندیشیدن به معاصر" اثر ژان-ماری برنو - 31 صفحه. کلیت نظر من اینه که کتاب اثر متوسطی است و چندان هم فلسفی نیست - اگر توجیه کردن رو بنیاد فلسفه بدونیم. اون چیزی که خیلی تو چشم می زنه الکی دشوار بودنشه - البته وخود نوشته ی آگامبن خیلی دشوار نیست اما باید بارها بری و برگردی تا چیزی ( هر چند شاید اشتباه ) گیرت بیاد. این دشوار بودن در بخش دوم کتاب واقعا به چشم می خوره و متن واقعا جفت و جور نمی شه تو ذهن

20 piccole pagine prese da un discorso inaugurale allo IUAV. Chi è contemporaneo? Chi agisce la capacità di essere inattuale (Nietzsche) e guardare nel buio, da una prospettiva archeologica. Librino che, appena inizia, finisce: ho decisamente bisogno di leggere altro di Agamben!

Un opuscolo che si legge nel tempo di un'attesa, ma che risulta illuminante in diversi passaggi, grazie ad una riflessione lucida sul concetto di contemporaneo che ci dà una direzione più chiara su cosa dobbiamo fare per trovarlo.

"Contemporaneo è colui che è in grado di scrivere intingendo la penna nella tenebra del presente." (p. 13)
Temperamente
«È davvero contemporaneo chi non coincide perfettamente col suo tempo né si adegua alle sue pretese ed è perciò, in questo senso, inattuale; ma, proprio attraverso questo scarto e questo anacronismo, egli è capace più degli altri di percepire e afferrare il suo tempo». Così parlò Giorgio Agamben in apertura di questo libello edito da Nottetempo, per la collana I sassi, ognuno dei quali, a differenza dei più voluminosi Gransassi, consta di 30 pagine e costa 3 euro.

Très court texte d'Agamben tiré d'une conférence.

Malgré sa définition de contemporain intéressante ( est contemporain celui qui est capable de mettre en relation d'autres temps, qui est capable de lire l'Histoire de manière inédite) je suis restée sur ma faim.
Je regrette que le tout ne soit pas un peu plus complet et étoffé.

Malgré tout, ce texte m'a donné envie de regarder d'autres de ses écrits. Je vais simplement privilégier ses livres au lieu des retranscriptions de ses conférences.

Me interessou principalmente o capítulo "O que é um dispositivo" onde Agamben recupera (e desenvolve) algumas ideias de Foucault, entre elas a do dispositivo como "Um conjunto de estratégias de relações de força, que condicionam certos tipos de saber e por eles são condicionados" e sua relação com os "seres viventes". Livrinho curto e que me deu caminhos para correr atras de várias outras ideias para minhas pesquisas. Indico a todos :)
