Details

Convocamos a discutir esos temas considerando la variedad de cruces posibles que pueden construirse en diferentes contextos políticos. El pensamiento político de Derrida excede las cuestiones meramente teoréticas cuando Derrida muestra que la apuesta de la responsabilidad se vuelve indisociable de la de una soberanía entendida como el momento extra-legal, sobrehumano (o infrahumano) a partir del cual se dispone el poder. Así también cuando Derrida discute con Jankélévitch sobre  el axioma de un perdón imposible frente a los campos de exterminio, con argumentos que también podrían ser traspolados a otras conyunturas históricas de dictadura, genocidio o tortura, y que hacen visible la imposibilidad de cualquier tipo de  economía de memoria y olvido. Algo parecido ocurre en relación a la justicia y a la memoria histórica, que solo mantienen sentido cuando son pensadas desde una dimensiónmesiánica.

Programa pronto disponible

We want to open a discussion of these issues, considering all the possible intersections that can be built with different political contexts. Derrida’s political thought exceeds in fact pure theoretical matters. This happens when Derrida shows that the commitment of responsibility becomes inseparable from sovereignty understood as the extra-legal, superhuman (or infra-human) moment from which power is given. Or when Derrida discusses with Jankélévitch the axiom of an impossible forgiveness in the face of the extermination camps, with arguments that could also be transposed onto other historical conjunctures, such as dictatorship, genocide or torture, and that make visible the impossibility of any kind of economy of memory and forgetfulness. Something similar happens in relation to justice and historical memory, both of which only  maintain meaning when they are thought on the basis of a messianicdimension.
