It tends to drive people apart rather than bringing them together. I understand that Newman is concerned, as he is right to be, that the bringing together too often runs the risk of embracing once again essentializing concepts and authoritarian forms of power.
What is Postanarchism "Post"?
It seems to me, however, that an adequate political approach cannot avoid this risk; its task is to articulate a conception of language that sees meaning — and the political categories that arise from it — as determinate but contingent, rather than necessarily indeterminate. A third possibility, and to my mind the right one, would be a contingent determinacy, a determinacy that can float around the edges, be criticized and changed by genealogical or other critique, but that retains its power to provide the kind of ethical edge that Newman seeks but seems to me not to find in Derrida and Lacan.
That said, I recommend the book highly to scholars of progressive thought. Newman seems to me to be right on target in seeing anarchism rather than Marxism as the proper jumping-off point for progressive political theory; and in that his work, moreover, is in keeping with the current trend of anti-globalization movements around the world. That Newman is providing an interesting and original perspective, rooted in the right place, cannot be denied. Thursday, June 27, Home Library Lacanian Anarchism and the Left. Share on Facebook.
