Hannah Arendt e Judith Butler em perspectivas

Este curso pretende esquadrinhar os modos como Hannah Arendt e Judith Butler desenvolvem de forma peculiar e, em alguns pontos, complementar, um arcabouço teórico indispensável para a compreensão das relações na modernidade, ao pensarem a produção de tecnologias para o controle dos corpos e da intimidade, a constituição dos sujeitos, os processos de subjetivação dos corpos, a dimensão pública das subjetividades, o Estado, os movimentos sociais e a política como ação na esfera pública.
Os encontros serão às SEGUNDAS e QUINTAS (13, 16, 20, 23, 27 e 30/08), diferentemente do que é indicado no site do SESC, das 19h às 21h.

Hannah Arendt and the Boundaries of the Public Sphere

Call for Papers
The Russian Sociological Review invites scholars in the fields of theoretical sociology, social philosophy, intellectual history and the related disciplines in the social sciences and humanities to contribute to a special issue devoted to Hannah Arendt and the problem of the boundaries of public sphere.Hannah Arendt is one of the most vigorous advocates of public politics and agonistic debate among contemporary political philosophers. Because of our essential plurality, humans can access and preserve their common world “only to the extent that many people can talk about it and exchange their opinions and perspectives with one another, over against one another”.However, Arendt’s position is challenged by the recent transformations of democracy which are making us reconsider the limits of political discussion. With both traditional and new media undergoing a radical transformation, it is becoming increasingly common to deny political opponents the moral right to justify their position in public debate. This pattern can be observed across the political spectrum and also across borders: in some places in the world many refuse to debate with the rising extreme right, while in other places it is the liberals who are considered traitors and therefore excluded from public discussion. The outcome is a remarkable fragmentation of the public sphere and the coexistence of communities holding incompatible views of reality.Arendt’s thought is a promising point to access the problem of who can and who cannot be admitted to the public forum. While arguing for the cultivation of plurality as a political virtue, she nevertheless calls for responsible politics which implies protecting the public sphere.Arendt is no less famous for noticing the intrinsic link between freedom and lying in politics than for her alarming analyses of totalitarianism. How can these positions be reconciled and/or synthesized in an age of ‘alternative facts’, ‘post-truths’ and the threatening encapsulation of people within their echo chambers?Arendt’s own positions have been criticized many times for going beyond the admissible, from her nuanced reflection on the Holocaust to alleged contamination by Nazi philosophy.The lessons from Arendt’s controversial biography for present-day politics are still to be drawn.

The Russian Sociological Review invites submissions focusing on how Arendt’s political concepts can be used to establish justified limits for public discussion and promoting public politics today. How can politics benefit from conflict and control it? Are there any positions and ideologies to be disqualified from public debate? In what ways are individuals responsible for upholding pluralism? How should the public sphere accommodate new types of political lies? How can Arendt’s vision of the political be mobilized to answer the political challenges of the present day?

Hannah Arendt: Challenges of Plurality

Paderborn University, 13th – 15th December 2018

In her writings, Hannah Arendt strongly affirms the plurality of the common world. From the very first moment, when she introduces the notion in The Human Condition, it becomes clear that plurality is the cornerstone of condition humaine. For Arendt, plurality means that “men, not Man, live on the earth and inhabit the world”. This seemingly banal assumption affects her entire political theory considerably.

Plurality entails two aspects: equality and difference – we are all humans, but everyone is exceptional in her or his uniqueness. But as such, it not only enriches the world, but also becomes a source of significant challenges: acting together in spite of our differences, thinking as an inner dialogue with a particularly demanding dialogue partner, judging politically with respect to an ever-changing spectrum of possible standpoints are all challenging practices we confront in the common world.

This conference aims at exploring challenges posed by plurality, but also opportunities it offers. As an interdisciplinary endeavor, it opens up for different approaches to Arendt, inviting scholars from fields such as philosophy, politics, theology, media studies, sociology, gender studies, history, and others. It also prompts examination of interplay with other theorists (such as Agamben, Butler, Cavarero, Foucault, or Merleau-Ponty). We want to tackle currently relevant problems, such as migration politics and human rights, but also raise ever-present issues, such as the philosophical potential of the concept of plurality, possible foundations of normativity in our contingent world, or stimuli for political action.
