  1. Italian Thought and Social Theory: Thinking with ‘Pre-Modernity’ Beyond ‘Post-Modernity’.Danilo Martuccelli & Paola Rebughini - 2017 - Thesis Eleven 140 (1):56-73.
    The aim of this article is to explore how, and to what extent, Italian thought – by its focalization on pre-modern theoretical issues and its distance from classical modern topics, such as the philosophy of conscience or the transcendence of language – can offer a different insight on contemporary social theory and critical theory, after the dissolution of the idea of totality as a foundational concept of modernity. In the last decades, a frame named ‘Italian theory’ has started to circulate (...)

  • Neo-Liberalism and the Symbolic Institution of Society: Pitting Foucault Against Lefort on the State and the ‘Political’.Antoon Braeckman - 2015 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 41 (9):945-962.
    This article sets up a dialogue between Lefort’s view on the relationship between state and modern society and Foucault’s thesis of a governmental turn in the modern power regime. Whereas Lefort’s political ontology leaves room for divergent agencies from which the symbolic institution of the social may unfold, his preoccupation with democracy leads him to link the symbolic institution of modern society inseparably with the functioning of the modern state. By contrast, Foucault’s history of governmentality documents a shift in the (...)

    One of the more perplexing terms to appear across Claude Lefort’s later oeuvre, ‘wild’ or ‘savage’ democracy has proved a difficult and divisive facet of Lefort’s political phi...

  • Rethinking Harmony in International Relations.Damien Mahiet - 2021 - Journal of International Political Theory 17 (3):257-275.
    Harmony is a generally agreed-upon idea in international and diplomatic discourse. A common theme in multiple traditions of thought, Platonist and Confucian among others, it underlies today’s significant investments in musical activism, cultural diplomacy, conflict resolution and peace building. Yet despite this wide currency and long history, the idea of harmony seldom receives more than liminal attention in political theory. In the context of Western thought, an essay written in the 1830s by the French philosopher Jean Reynaud offers a striking (...)

  • Modernity Gone Awry: Lefort on Totalitarian and Democratic Self-Representation.Raf Geenens - 2012 - Critical Horizons 13 (1):74 - 93.
    This essay starts by reviewing Claude Lefort’s writings on totalitarianism, a theme that runs like a red thread through his oeuvre and plays a key role in the different stages of his intellectual development. The analysis of the USSR is a central interest of Lefort and his colleagues at Socialisme ou Barbarie (and inspires them to adopt an explicitly “political” approach against the “economism” of their fellow Marxists); the problem of totalitarianism features prominently in Lefort’s theory of democracy and human (...)
