Anti-Odysseus: Orphism and Late Communism in Bulgaria

A 1980s debate between Bulgarian “structuralists” and so called “impressionist critics” provides a line of demarcation between structuralists and post-structuralists while simultaneously delineating “Orphism” as the heavily controversial theoretical counterpart to the rise of Thracian studies in archeology and historiography. Since national identity turns out to be a major ideological wager of these controversies, they acquire an unforeseen relevance today. Full text here.

Project MUSE – Revolution and Time in Kristeva’s Writing

clockSource: Project MUSE – Revolution and Time in Kristeva’s Writing

Julia Kristeva’s recent novel The Enchanted Clock confronts the acute feeling of closure and wounded projectivity which surfaces in contemporary representations of the divine qua machine. It thus presents a new chapter in Kristeva’s theoretical explorations of revolution as a crucial and multi-faceted aspect of temporality – from the political interface of poetic language via the psychoanalytic angle on the births and rebirths of the speaking subject up to the sick ideality at the heart of new forms of revolt. Beyond the contemporary political upheavals, those new forms respond, perhaps, to a fundamental alteration of our position vis-à-vis the appropriation, by the descendants of the “enchanted clock” of the Enlightenment, of what we thought was most intimately human. Evoking Dante’s neologism trasumanar, transhumanize, Kristeva’s reflection moves from anamnesis to fantasy and from return to rupture in order to reopen the question of revolt as a defining characteristic of the human.

Еньо Стоянов. Наратив и алгоритъм при видеоигрите

Семинар "Софийски игри"

IMG_1788 Еньо Стоянов

През есента на 2016 година Еньо Стоянов представи вижданията си за отношението между алгоритъм и наратив на един опит за “преброяване на дивите зайци” на интересуващите се от видеоигри в Софийския университет. Малко сме се надявали тогава, че само две години по-късно – през есента на 2018 – ще можем да очакваме старта на магистърска програма “Дигитални медии  и видеоигри”, където Еньо Стоянов ще участва като един от преподавателите (по-подробна информация за програмата ще има в най-близко време). Междувременно текстът му беше публикуван в сборника “Парачовешкото. Грация и гравитация“, откъдето с позволение на автора го препечатваме тук – НАРАТИВ И АЛГОРИТЪМ.

Kolozova’s Radical Metaphysics

katerina-kolozova-1What if philosophy is a problem? Not in some Heideggerian-inspired sense in which “problem” would come to mean that philosophy takes itself as its object of concern or some such (although this is certainly part of the problem identified in Kolozova’s work), but in the literal sense that it is something that we ought to resist because it is oppressive, exploitative, and destructive of human and animal life?”

This is the beginning of Rick Elmore’s Introduction to a discussion of Kolozova’s radical metaphysics comprising Anthony Paul Smith‘s and Dominic Fox‘s commentaries. My is forthcoming.
