The book postmodefnismo an essential read for students and academics across the humanities, particularly those interested in the history and periodicity of art, as well as anti-postmodernist social theorists like myself, and perhaps, a general readership of those who affiliate themselves with the political Left. The problem is that one category is reduced to another. Modernity was perceived to be the ‘endgame’ or the realised ideals of the Enlightenment.

Callinicos’ objective is to back this up with evidence. The modes of resistance advocated here fall incredibly short.

What they do is rather a Hegelian turn which incorporates even the “appearance” Schein in the totality of “truth” see Foucault’s analysis of the social truth based on the everything and anything the agents “do and do not”, “say and do not say”, as empirical reality; or Deleuze’s emphasize on the givenness of the empirical facticity, especially with the conecpt of “immanence” as opposed to Platonic “emanation”in that sense, far from engaging themselves in endless language games, Foucault, Derrida and Deleuze all share a common commitment to the relevance of the classical theory of reality as a starting point.

Cybermilitia rated it it was amazing Nov 06, For that, post-structuralists, with a Nietzschean ontology, deny the problematic dichotomy of “appearance-truth” since it’s an obsolete discussion, giving way to countless fractions within structuralists themselves, inhibiting any possibility of a collective action.

This implies a principle of individuation which is denied in poststructuralism. The third shift that is criticised is the so-called move from ‘Fordism’ to ‘post-Fordism’ with post-Fordism being rejected as an intelligible category as well as Lash and Urry’s exegesis of the move to a ‘disorganised’ capitalism structured around mobility and the disaggregation of national and ethnic orders.

This is why Ferry and Renaut joke about Derrida’s similarities to Heidegger the “self-occultation of Being” as Callinicos puts it is similar to differance. Against the third way: In Foucault we have the challenging of a ‘dominant knowledge’ by ppstmodernismo ‘local knowledges’.

Three themes are embraced in this claim; the poststructurist critique by Foucault, Derrida and others of the philosophical heritage of the Enlightenment; the supposed impasse of High Modern art and its replacement by new artistic forms; and the alleged emergence of ‘post-industrial’ societies whose structures are beyond the ken of Marx and other theorists of industrial capitalism.

Anti-capitalist manifesto A Callinicos Polity Yochai Gal rated it it was amazing Feb 12, The origins of this theory are located in the philosophy of Nietzsche, specifically the ‘fiction’ of the subject, the plural nature of the self and the idea of ‘will to power’, and how thought is simply expressive of this power. Resistance is located in ‘life itself’ – ep life that is dislocated and disunified, in contrast to the unities of ‘body’ and ‘state’. Chapter 3 turns to poststructuralist theory and deconstruction.

But what bothers Callinicos is apparently their second and third steps which seek to create zones of resistance and transformation in symbolic and cultural practices czllinicos well, and I see nothing wrong there, since as Marx underlines it well, symbolic and cultural practices are in an organic and reciprocal relation with the factual reality of forces of production.

It is best read as a symptom of political frustration calljnicos social mobility rather than as a significant intellectual or cultural phenomenon in its own right.
