Independentzia helburu (Liburu iruzkina, Iker Iraola, Uztaro 2016)

By • May 28th, 2016

Atalen aniztasunaz gain, liburu honetan, oro har, egileen planteamendu ezagunak topatuko ditu irakurleak, hainbat idatzi eta artikulutan irakurri dituenak; baina modu sistematikoago batean azalduta. Zentzu horretan, independentismoan garatzen ari den diskurtso berri batera gerturatzeko lan aproposa da. Diskurtso berria, ez helburuak berriak direlako, nahiz eta agian orain arte azpimarratu ez diren batzuk nabarmendu bai (feminismoa, aniztasun nazionala, etab.); baina, oro har, esango nuke orain arte abertzaletasunetik bilatu diren bideen gaurkotzea dela proposatzen dena.



«Literaturak ez du islatzen errealitatea: sortu egiten du» (berria, 2016-05-08 – osoa)

By • May 8th, 2016

“Eredu nazionalistak —ze aipatzen dugun hau eredu nazionalista da— herri bat-hizkuntza bat-subjektu bat eskemari jarraitzen dio. Eredu horrek ez dio euskarari laguntzen, euskararen arazoak estaltzen ditu. Esan dezakegu eredu hegeliarra dela. Zergatik? Beti narratiba bera duelako: subjektua sortzen da, kontraesan batzuen bidez hazten da, eta beti amaitzen du bere buruaren osotasuna nolabait erdietsiz. Zein da horren arazoa? Euskara ez dela inoiz hizkuntza nazionala izan, baizik eta klase sozial batena, eta hain zuzen klase sozial horren kontra erabili den hizkuntza. Gaurdainoko euskal literaturaren historia guztiek falazia hegeliarrari segitzen diote. “



“Bidaia filosofikoak” liburu aurkezpena

By • Feb 15th, 2016

Bidaia filosofikoak (Utriusque Vasconiae, Donostia 2015) filosofia-liburua da; baina baita bidaia-liburua ere, zentzu berezian, behinik behin. Bada, bidaiaren metafora joriaz baliatzen gara liburuan hausnarketa eta bidaien arteko harremanaren berri emateko. Horrexegatik, izenbururako bidaiaren irudia hartzeaz gain, liburuaren lehen atalari “Bidaideak” izena eman diogu, zenbait bidaidek lagunduta osatu dugulako; bereziki, Hannah Arendt eta Günther Anders izan ditugu […]



Independentzia helburu: Independentzia pentsatzeko (berria, 2015-12-02)

By • Dec 9th, 2015

Mintegiren ustez, lau egileek “eztabaida eraikitzaile bat” plazaratu dute liburuarekin, eta uste du garbi jarri dutela independentismoak XXI. mendeko osagaiak kontuan hartu beharko dituela aurrera egin nahi badu. Iñaki Soto Gara-ko zuzendaria ere izan da Donostian egindako aurkezpenean. Iritzi dio “pentsamendu” liburu honek euskal gizarteko eztabaida maila “igo” egin duela. Herritarrei begirako lan bat izatea ere laudatu du.



Frank Ruda: For Badiou: Idealism Without Idealism (Diaresis, 2015)

By • Oct 11th, 2015

For Badiou serves both as an introduction to the influential French philosopher Alain Badiou’s thought and as an in-depth examination of his work. Ruda begins with a thorough and clear outline of the sometimes difficult main tenets of Badiou’s philosophy. He then traces the philosophers throughout Western thought who have influenced Badiou’s project—especially Plato, Descartes, […]



Benjamin Noys: Malign Velocities, Zero Books, 2014

By • Nov 6th, 2014

Malign Velocities works well as a critical introduction to accelerationism, and is a perfect complement to Mackay and Avanessian’s #Accelerate: The Accelerationist Reader. It deftly combines academic erudition with a journalistic eye for unexpected details. Accelerationism is not immune from criticism, and Noys’ book is a helpful reminder of that.



Love and Struggle (David Gilbert, PMpress, 2013)

By • Oct 17th, 2014

Love and Struggle shares how one person answered the age-old question of “which side are you on?” … And it pulls back the curtain on a system that’s still alive and unfortunately doing too well, thus asking readers the same. What will we do to see that David Gilbert and the other political prisoners still behind bars are freed? What will we do to carry on their legacy? What will we do so that the lessons learned and shared are advanced for another generation?



Chris McMillan (ed) – Žižek and Communist Strategy

By • Oct 8th, 2014

This contribution to the rapidly expanding field of Žižek studies aims to challenge directly what is perhaps the thorniest of the many criticisms aimed at the Slovenian Lacanian-Hegelian-Marxist theorist, a charge often leveled by his would-be allies on the radical Left: that his work is ‘good theory, bad politics’.
