  WHAT

Call for contributions per la rivista Trόpos. Rivista di Ermeneutica e critica filosofica, 2018, n. 2: Revolution and Its Enemies. Between Politics and Philosophy, a cura di Paolo Furia e Roberto Zanetti.

TOPICS

The great majority of political divisions concerning revolution (and revolutions) we knew in recent history concerns the theoretical sustainability of this concept and the idea of temporality connected to it. From this point of view, many philosophers have underlined that the notions of tradition, authority and temporal continuity rule out the possibility of a radical breakthrough in history. After all, Gadamer’s critical remarks on the Enlightenment’s claims against prejudice raise some questions: isn’t it true that revolution too has a tradition in which it has been thought? Therefore, isn’t it true that it owes something to a historical context, that can justify it and give it a sense? As far as a revolutionary subject is concerned: isn’t it true that its political purposes are strongly influenced by an inherited historical background?
On the one hand, Fukuyama’s idea of “end of history” seems to have significantly undermined any possible demand for transformation. In fact, economical globalization and liberal democracy tend to present themselves as the ultimate steps of spirit’s development. On the other
hand, the crisis of the “great narrations” deprived revolution of both its historical and theoretical horizon. Nevertheless, many authors – such as Castoriadis, Abensour and Agamben – tried to reinterpret the concept of revolution in light of (and beyond) modern philosophy of history. However, it is a fact that the theoretical and practical sustainability of the concept of revolution is not at all self-evident.
The present issue of Tropos will be dedicated to the concept of revolution, with a view to reconstruct its peculiar hermeneutics, which is, its theoretical meaning and its many nuances, and to verify its eventual actuality. The crucial aspects on which the attention is focused are:

  • the temporal dimensions of revolution, between historicity and messianism (Marx, Benjamin, Bloch);
  • the philosophical hermeneutics and the revolution as the radical break of the historical continuum (Gadamer, Habermas, Ricoeur, Apel);
  • revolution in the postmodern thought, between critical rethink and abandonment (Fukuyama, Castoriadis, Agamben, Abensour, Lyotard);
  • the crisis of the postmodern and the recovery of politics. Future perspectives.
