Abstract

A insatisfação é como o impulso da ave que a lança pelos ares. Porém, para valer, há de gerar convicções e ser paradigma, motor, na sociedade. E na história. É isto que os autores interrogam. Na religião, na ciência, nas culturas. Com os seus conflitos desequilibradores e diálogos conciliadores. O que nos torna livres é a Verdade (Jo. 8, 32). Quanto mais ameaçador o desequilíbrio, mais competente, tem de ser a insatisfação cultural e social. E mais apurada a qualidade das utopias. Se a história actual cultiva ou não a Utopia, não é indiferente. Quanto mais abrasiva a crise da esperança, mais aguda se torna a pergunta. O livro prossegue a tetralogia anterior: 1. O brotar da Criação. Um olhar dinâmico pela ciência, a filosofia e a teologia; 2. A Pergunta de Job. O homem e o mistério do mal; 3. O Deus que não temos. Uma história de grandes intuições e mal entendidos; 4. A Dinâmica da Espiral. Uma aproximação ao mistério de tudo. Faltava esta temática. Em diálogo com leitores/as de cultura sustentável. E como homenagem a quantos acreditam na Esperança apesar dos contratempos da vida. Os obstáculos e espinhos não são realmente tudo. Mais forte que todas as dificuldades, é a força da Esperança.

Abstract

“No longer imminent, the End is immanent.” “Ends are ends,” Frank Kermode goes on to clarify, “only when they are not negative but frankly transfigure the events in which they were immanent.” From its imminence to its immanence, not “negative,” “no longer,” but transformative, how is “the End” in turn “transfigured”? In what may ending be said then to consist? To “the end times” of apocalypse and eschatology Giorgio Agamben, following Gianni Carchia, opposes messianism and “messianic time”—to the end of time, in a formula, the time of the end. To the writings of those for whom to philosophize is to learn how to die—from Plato to Montaigne and beyond—one may oppose, in like manner, the writings of Spinoza, who “thinks of death least of all things”—“for nature is Messianic by reason of its eternal and total passing away,” as Benjamin writes—and so in whose pages “wisdom,” transfigured, “is a meditation on life.”

Abstract

In anthropology, as much as in the current popular imagination, kings remain figures of fascination and intrigue. As the cliché goes, kings continue to die spectacular deaths only to remain subjects of vitality and long life. This collection of essays by a teacher and his student — two of the world’s most distinguished anthropologists— explores what kingship actually is, historically and anthropologically. The divine, the stranger, the numinous, the bestial—the implications for understanding kings and their sacred office are not limited to questions of sovereignty, but issues ranging from temporality and alterity to piracy and utopia; indeed, the authors argue that kingship offers us a unique window into the fundamental dilemmas concerning the very nature of power, meaning, and the human condition. With the wit and sharp analysis characteristic of these two thinkers, this volume opens up new avenues for how an anthropological study of kingship might proceed in the 21st century.

Abstract

In the 1960s, between the construction of the Berlin Wall (1961) and the change of power (Ulbricht / Honecker 1971), a field of tension between the claim to power and truth of the SED on one side and the subjective obstinacy of the works of art and their creators on the other hand developed. Within it, debates arose regarding the question of the design and appearance of a future, technologically high developed and scientific socialism. Working. Living. Computer tracks down questions about the appearance of the worker of the future, the future of living, and the significance of the computer in the future and analyses these imaginative worlds of socialist dreams and desires in image, architecture, and texts.

Abstract

Queer Insists is a memorial essay, a work of mourning, written for the queer theorist and performance scholar José Esteban Muñoz (1967-2013) shortly after his untimely death in December 2013. In a series of fragments, not unlike Roland Barthes’s Mourning Diary, Michael O’Rourke shares memories of Muñoz, the stories and reflections of his friends in the wake of his passing, and readings of his work from Disidentifications to Cruising Utopia and beyond. O’Rourke argues that, for Muñoz, queer does not exist, per se, but rather insists, soliciting us from the future to-come. Muñoz reached towards teleopoietic worlds as he invented a queer theory we have yet to find, but are invited to glimpse. Among the Muñozian themes this chapbook discusses are hope, utopia, affect, punk rock, heresy, the undercommons, temporality, hauntology, forgetting, loss, ephemera, partage, sense, incommensurability, the event and democracy. In reading Muñoz as a Rogue Theorist, this book borrows many of the gifts we have received (and have yet to receive) from him, marking the force and luminescence of his thought, and insisting upon the rare and precious singularity of his work. Muñoz bequeaths to us a queer studies without condition which it is our duty to foster and to bear as we carry it and him into the unknowable futures of an indiscipline

Abstract

Dutch architect, architectural theorist and urban thinker Rem Koolhaas (born 1944) has been a protagonist of the international architectural avant-garde since the 1970s; his numerous worldwide awards include the Pritzker Prize in 2000 for his lifetime achievement. Through a series of essays, this book interprets his many buildings and projects by drawing on Koolhaas' own theoretical oeuvre of polemics, manifestos, interviews, books such as Delirious New York and his so-called "design patents." In these writings, Koolhaas articulates a design method that links theory and practice, which this book not only orients within architectural history, but also shows how it repositions the function of the authors or the architects themselves.

Abstract

Welche Rolle spielt(e) das Utopische im Prozess der Europäischen Integration? Was bedeutet die Formulierung vom "utopischen Europa" in Zeiten der Wirtschafts- und Finanzkrise in der EU? Anhand der Analyse juristischer Grundlagentexte zeigt Marcus Koch, welche Position utopische Vorstellungen in der europäischen Einigung einnahmen und wie sie sich in der historischen Entwicklung verändert haben. Die Studie verdeutlicht einmal mehr, dass utopische Vorstellungen eine Triebfeder politischer Prozesse sind, und trägt zum Diskurs um die Attraktivität und Sinnhaftigkeit der derzeit viel gescholtenen Europäischen Union bei.

Abstract

While concepts of Earth have a rich tradition, more recent examples show a distinct quality: Though ideas of wholeness might still be related to mythical, religious, or utopian visions of the past, ''Earth'' itself has become available as a whole. This raises several questions: How are the notions of one Earth or our Planet imagined and distributed? What is the role of cultural imagination and practices of signification in the imagination of ''the Earth''? Which theoretical models can be used or need to be developed to describe processes of imagining Planet Earth? This collection invites a wide range of perspectives from different fields of the Humanities to explore the means of imagining Earth.

Abstract

Thomas Morus 'Utopia' („Von der besten Staatsverfassung und von der neuen Insel Utopia, ein wahrhaft goldenes Büchlein, genauso wohltuend wie heiter“) (1516) ist ein Klassiker der Politischen Philosophie, der die spätere Tradition fiktiver Staatsmodelle prägte. Der Name bezeichnet ein ""Nirgendwo"", durch dessen Unauffindbarkeit alle Sehnsüchte in eine unerreichbare Ferne projiziert werden. Als Utopie gilt eine Vorstellung, die als Idee zwar denkbar, aber nicht unmittelbar umzusetzen ist. Der Band hinterfragt, mit welchen Chancen auf gesellschaftspolitische Diskussion heute überhaupt noch fiktive Staatsmodelle ausgearbeitet werden können.
