L’accumulazione originaria: genesi del modo di produzione capitalistico tra storia e struttura


Sebastiano Taccola

Normal School of Pisa
sebastiano.taccola@sns.it

 
 
 
Abstract: This paper proposes a re-examination of the Marxian primitive accumulation. In the first two parts, I will sum up the Marxian exposition of the primitive accumulation as a diachronic process, which is capable to explain the historical genesis of the capitalist mode of production, especially as it took place in England (through the Enclosures Acts, the clearing of the estates, and so on). Then, I will focus on the permanence of this kind of accumulation, on the one hand (part three), as a lever that drives the … Continua a leggere

Da Hegel a Marx: fenomenologia dello Stato moderno capitalistico


Carla Maria Fabiani*

carla_fab@libero.it

 
 
Abstract: In Chapter 24 of the first book of Capital, Marx deals with the modern capitalist State, emphasizing the existence of complex factors which affect it. The theoretical basis of his reflection is to be found in Hegel’s Phenomenology. He points out the violent methods that the State use against workers – the eslege proletariat – and the subsumtpion of the State to capital.
 
Keywords: State, capital, system, rabble, eslege proletariat, pauperism

Divagazioni intorno al 25° capitolo del I Libro del Capitale


Edoarda Masi (1927 – 2011)*

 
 
 
Abstract: This paper deals with Marx’s theory of colonization. It is argued that – in constrast with E.G. Wakefield’s view – Marx proposed a complete a consistent approach to the role of colonization in the dynamics of capital reproduction. In particular, he emphasized the transformation of free men in “underdeveloped” economies into wage workers.

Money as Money: Suzanne de Brunhoff’s Marxist Monetary Theory


Rebecca Carson*

Kingston University, London
k1436908@kingston.ac.uk

 
Abstract: This article proposes the necessity to return to Suzanne de Brunhoff’s Marxist monetary theory in order to conceptualise the relationship between production and social reproduction within financialised capitalist social relations. De Brunhoff maintains a commitment to understanding «money as money» or money as an independent variable, with a focus on a monetary theory of credit. By representing un-valorised value, credit money cannot simply be understood as representative of reified forms of value and therefore corresponding subjection to the form cannot be interpreted from the point of view of the … Continua a leggere

Il mondo mistico del Capitale: scienza, critica e rivoluzione in Lucio Colletti


Gianluca Pozzoni*

Università degli Studi di Milano
gianluca.pozzoni@unimi.it

 
 
Abstract: Taking the cue from some of Lucio Colletti’s unpublished letters and writings, this article will focus on Colletti’s work from the 1967-1973 period. Here, Colletti interprets Marx’s theory of value in terms of a «real abstraction» – i.e. in terms of the alienation of individual private labours. By turning this abstraction into an object and by reifying it, capital becomes for Colletti an inherently “upside-down” social reality, whose knowledge can only be acquired through the critique and upturning of its idealism. The originality of Colletti’s Marxism … Continua a leggere

Moishe Postone’s New Reading of Marx: the Critique of Political Economy as a Critical Theory of the Historically Specific Social Form of Labor


Chris O’Kane

John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY
cokane@jjay.cuny.edu

 
 
Abstract: This article examines Moishe Postone’s new reading of the critique of political economy. Part One contextualizes the underlying justification of Postone’s interpretation of Marx by discussing his critique of traditional marxism and frankfurt school critical theory. Part Two exposits Postone’s interpretation of the fundamental categories of Capital in Time, Labor and Social Domination from this perspective: arguing that Postone attempts to rejuvenate Marxian critical theory by conceiving of the critique of political economy as a critique of the historically specific and contradictory dynamic of abstract … Continua a leggere

The Adventures of Vergesellschaftung


Riccardo Bellofiore

Università degli Studi di Bergamo
riccardo.bellofiore@unibg.it

 
 
 
Abstract: This paper engages in a dialogue with opposite approaches whose importance is that they take seriously the issues of abstract labour and capitalist ‘socialisation’ (Vergesellschaftung). On the one side there is Michael Heinrich’s view about the Marxian ‘monetary theory of value’, stressing the nachträgliche Vergesellschaftung, whereas abstract labour exists only in monetary circulation of commodities, hence in ex post ‘socialisation’, within a non-commodity money approach. On the other side, there is Roberto Finelli, insisting that labour is already immediately fully ‘social’. This latter position is untenable … Continua a leggere

1. Una quarta generazione della Scuola di Francoforte, non più solo tedesca
 
È merito di Axel Honneth, l’esponente di spicco della cosiddetta terza generazione della Scuola di Francoforte, aver rilanciato nel dibattito filosofico e sociologico degli ultimi anni il concetto di “patologie sociali”, offrendo così un quadro di raccordo teorico a tutto un filone di ricerca, che tuttora alimenta alcune delle direzioni più vivaci e avvertite del pensiero critico contemporaneo.

A partire dall’importante saggio del 1996 Patologie del sociale, in cui per la prima volta si è … Continua a leggere

1. Potenza ed eclissi di un sistema e il problema del divenire
 
Potenza ed eclissi di un sistema. Hegel e i fondamenti della trasformazione[1], come sintetizza mirabilmente Remo Bodei, si pone la seguente domanda: «Che cosa è, in senso rigoroso, il Divenire e quale il suo rapporto con l’Essere?» (Bodei 2016, 9). Tale domanda non può non far pensare a quella che probabilmente è la più radicale negazione del divenire nella storia del pensiero occidentale, la filosofia di … Continua a leggere

Quello che la storia del pensiero ha riservato all’amicizia è un concetto composito e stratificato, il quale, pur non comparendo nel novero delle sue categorie preminenti, non ha tuttavia cessato, nel corso del tempo, di suscitare l’interesse della riflessione filosofica. “Categoria” dal profilo ancipite, situata al confine di filosofia pratica e filosofia teoretica, tra individuo e società, passioni e ragione, l’amicizia si contraddistingue per una estesa pluralità di significati … Continua a leggere

L’amicizia hegeliana come «lasciar essere»: dalla negazione astratta dell’alterità al riconoscimento di sé


Roberto Finelli

Università Roma Tre
roberto.finelli@uniromatre.it

 
 
 
Abstract: Negation can be conceived of as the “metacategory” of Hegelian philosophy. An inquiry into its manifold and polysemous functions is essential to try to elucidate and to loose the complexities of Hegel’s dialectic. In the first part, this paper aims at showing how, through the three sections oft the Science of Logic the meaning and the function of Negation change in connection with the changing role of Otherness. The Author also argues that the Doctrine of the Concept displays structures and categories that are endowed with an ethical … Continua a leggere

Abstract: Plato describes the constitution of the Republic as faithful to the saying according to which « among friends, everything is common » and he also calls friends the citizens of the Laws. The present paper suggests that the nature of the community implied in the idea of political friendship in Plato is manifold and that it should be understood in the light of the two forms of the common known in Archaic and Classical greek thought: the exclusive common, i.e. a common ressource to be set … Continua a leggere

Le tre amicizie di Aristotele


Diego Zucca

Abstract: In this paper I present and discuss the Aristotelian theory of friendship. I mainly focus on the philosophical core of the theory, especially on the idea that there are three types of friendship (one based on the good, one based on the useful, one based on the pleasant). In presenting and discussing the theory: a) I concentrate on Aristotle’s method of inquiry, namely, on his attempt to do justice of phainomena (such as common behaviours, shared and notable opinions, ordinary intuitions, linguistic ascriptive practices) through a rational … Continua a leggere

Abstract: According to Epicurus, natural and necessary pleasures – the only ones that Epicurus admits – are those that look to happiness (eudaimonia), physical well-being (aokhlesia), and life itself. The desire for philosophy is the natural and necessary desire which looks to happiness. Philosophy, insofar as it frees us from ambitions, from the desire for power, for wealth, for fame, changes human beings and creates a “new man”, so to speak. This great transformation makes it possibile to establish this entirely different kind … Continua a leggere

Abstract: Friendship – as represented by emotions and affects – is the essential relationship on which mediaeval society is based, and the concept of friendship is ubiquitous in Medieval Thought. During the Middle Ages – which lasted for a thousand years – friendship always played a fundamental role in shaping social and political relations. This is the reason why medieval philosophers as well as princes and politicians – men of science as well as men of power – all showed a genuine interest in describing friendship’s features.

Abstract: This article sheds light on Machiavelli’s view of friendship as a political relationship. As the comparison between Platina’s De Principe and Machiavelli’s The Prince makes clear, the political anthropology, the political ontology and the vision of the world on which Machiavelli realistic idea of politics hinges imply that neither the relationship between a prince and his subjects nor that between the prince and his chosen advisers can be conceived as a form of friendship.

Abstract: In this article, I put forward a particular reading of the chapter “De l’amitié” from Montaigne’s Essais, which also draws upon other chapters with which it can be compared. Having dealt with the well-known question of the relationship between Montaigne and La Boétie, I go on to highlight those aspects which characterize the Montaignian model of perfect friendship compared with the paradigms of the ancient world, particularly that of Aristotle. I draw particular attention to the features of autonomy (as opposed to “heteronomous” friendships, the purpose … Continua a leggere

Abstract: This paper examines the multi-faceted nature of friendship, conceived by Spinoza as a linking concept between reason and passions, as well as a linking concept between individual behavior and politics. If friendship indicates a certain form of agreement between human beings, its precise features and outcomes vary to a large extent. In fact, friendship may be a rational and natural agreement which takes place between people who live according to reason and which resembles Seneca’s conception of true friendship, … Continua a leggere

Leibniz: note sull’amicizia


Mariannina Failla

Università Roma Tre

Abstract: The article aims to describe the several meanings of friendship by Leibniz; starting from the convinction that the person is the root of friendship, Leibniz distinguishes between person and “brutus” while  laying the foundations for an interesting philosophy of mind.  Cognition (vision of universal), will and memory  continuously interact in that frame. Friendship also leads to a specific political vision of civil society, based on relations of reciprocity (legal category of equity). The legal meaning and moral aspects of friendship  emerge  from the analysis of the three types … Continua a leggere

Abstract: This article aims at shedding light on Rousseau’s twofold conception of friendship, as a singular and «true» relation on the one hand, and as civic friendship on the other hand. As regards the first point, the paper analyzes Rousseau’s frequent comparison between love and friendship, as well as the preeminence he assigns tot he latter. often compares love with friendship and gives prominence in this last. Friendship is a product of our natural impulses. The ideal represented by friendship also allows to measure truth … Continua a leggere

Hegel e l’amicizia: presenza/assenza di un concetto


Sabina Tortorella

Abstract: The article starts by noticing that the topic of friendship is never directly discussed in the main Hegelian works and aims at identifying the reasons for the lack of consideration for this topic. Claiming that Hegel cannot be conceived as a philosopher of friendship necessarily involves asking ourselves about the very meaning of this notion, through a previous survey of the ways in which it was depicted by Hegel’s contemporaries. Within an interpretation that opposes the modern concept of friendship to Aristotelian philia, the essay … Continua a leggere
