Che cos'è un dispositivo? review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Amben's leading essay illuminates the notion 'I will call an apparatus' he writes 'literally anything that has in some way the capacity to capture orient determine intercept model control or secure the gestures behaviors opinions or discourses of living beings'Seen from this perspective Agamben's work like Foucault's may be described as the identification and investigation of apparatuses together with incessant attempts to find new ways to dismantle them Though philosophy contains the notion of philos or friend in its very name p. Chapter 1 What is an Apparatus Separating divine being and governance Leaves us with the governance Governance needs a subject though object perhaps rather as per definition we separated it from it s being and so we get us the subjects in our struggle with the governancedispotif apparatus But be careful because government can lead to catastrophic failure so make sure you uestion the apparatuses hand to hand profanation to reclaim them for yourself change them find new ones understand their influence etcAlso cool is that the creation of apparatuses is part of being human We are aware of our environment or precisely our separationdistance from it this introduced boredom the capacity to suspend this immediate relationship with disinhibitors but also the Open our awareness of the possibilities which we then crowd with instruments ie apparatuses because we want to further nullify our connection to animalistic nature to maximise our Open We want to enjoy being I would say from this there is no way to exist without apparatuses or iron cages of the spirit But what if we don t embrace conscious awareness Devoid ourselves of governance Is this lack of freedom better than a life of iron cagesreview È eBook or Kindle ePUB Ó Giorgio Agamben
Che cos'è un dispositivo? review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Hilosophers tend to be very skeptical about friendship In his second essay Agamben tries to dispel this skepticism by showing that at the heart of friendship and philosophy but also at the core of politics lies the same experience the shared sensation of being Guided by the uestion 'What does it mean to be contemporary' Agamben begins the third essay with a reading of Nietzsche's philosophy and Mandelstam's poetry proceeding from these to an exploration of such diverse fields as fashion neurophysiology messianism and astrophysics. Read this on a lazy afternoon which probably isn t the best way to do it but it s so short that it lends itself to be read uickly The title essay isn t necessarily a breakthrough for Agamben but it s a nice piece that places his criticisms of the society of the spectacle in line with Foucault s idea of an apparatus He seems to be grasping for credibility but I also gave his theory tons of credibility so it s informative but not essential The second essay Friend is a short close reading of a passage from Aristotle that Agamben believes is under read and it s interesting but also not central to understanding Agamben The last essay however sure is an eye opener Even after reading The Time That Remains I was a little confused about how Agamben s messianism works I m still not 100% on board but What is a Contemporary deftly defines the role of the poet in the messianic community No surprise that it ends with Walter Benjamin Recommended for Agamben lovers especially the last essay

Che cos'è un dispositivo? review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB The three essays collected in this book offer a succinct introduction to Agamben's recent work through an investigation of Foucault's notion of the apparatus a meditation on the intimate link of philosophy to friendship and a reflection on contemporariness or the singular relation one may have to one's own time 'Apparatus' dispositif in French is at once a most ubiuitous and nebulous concept in Foucault's later thought In a text bearing the same name 'What is a dispositif' Deleuze managed to contribute to its mystification but Ag. One of the most fascinating things I have read in a while It s short and reasonably accessible too Agamben makes use of Foucault s definition of the apparatus or dispotif the network of institutions technologies knowledge systems etc that exercise power within the social body of our society and traces its use over time to establish a relationship between modern organization of the world with the early Christian church The Holy Trinity Father the Son and the Holy Ghost needed the concept of apparatus to explain and produce the administration of God s will through the divine economy Agamben s uses the concept of the apparatus for describing the process of shaping and arranging of human subjects and offers profanation as a way of engaging in hand to hand combat with apparatuses that control form and direct our livesI still haven t the clue what he is really suggesting we do though by profanation Crime
