    On the Political: Schmitt Contra Schmitt.Benjamin Arditi - 2008 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2008 (142):7-28.
    Enmity, War, Intensity Norberto Bobbio once gave a minimal definition of politics, characterizing it as the activity of aggregating and defending our friends, and dispersing and fighting our enemies.1 We know that the instigator of this definition is Carl Schmitt, although his critics have often misunderstood the reference to enmity. What resonates most is the claim that friend-enemy oppositions constitute the basic code of the political and that such oppositions can lead to the extreme case of war. This might explain (...)

  3. Polemicization the Contingency of the Commonplace.Benjamín Arditi & Jeremy Valentine - 1999 - NYU Press.
    At the cutting edge of political theory, this first volume in the Taking on the Political Series reflects the conceptual foundations of the series, opening up space to the political by engaging in and redefining polemics. In recognition of the collapse of the traditional belief in strong foundations for the political domain and the ungrounding of politics generally, the authors introduce and map the concept of afoundationalism while tackling such themes as social structure, ethical argumentation and political organization. Provocative and (...)

    The Becoming-Other of Politics: A Post-Liberal Archipelago.Benjamin Arditi - 2003 - Contemporary Political Theory 2 (3):307-325.
    The discussion about the double inscription of the political is a familiar trope among progressive thinkers, whose discussions have focused primarily on the ontological presuppositions of the political at the expense of a theoretical reflection on politics. This article shifts the emphasis to the latter. It develops an image of thought of our political actuality that moves beyond the commonplace observation that politics exceeds electoral representation. Its underlying assumption is that modernity is characterized by a continual process of political territorialization (...)

    The Negotiation of Equivalence.Benjamin Arditi - 1997 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 23 (3):55-76.
    The paper deals with the status of referents for claims among conflicting claimants when multiplicity is a fact and there is no room for a substantive notion of community. It develops a notion of contingent and 'impure' universal as it arises in the negotiation of equivalence in scenarios of conflict between claimants. My argument is that measures of equivalence cannot conform to the caricature of absolute, all-encompassing referents intent on subjugating difference in the name of sameness; that a reflection about (...)

    El Reverso de la Diferencia.Benjamín Arditi - 2000 - Cinta de Moebio 7.
    Si las diferencias se rehúsan a cruzarse o contaminarse entre ellas, el mestizaje o hibridación termina siendo reemplazado por la lógica del desarrollo separado que es característica del apartheid. Con ello el mundo múltiple deviene un mosaico de fragmentos aislados y autoreferenciales. En el límite..
