    Jacques Rancière and the Politics of Theory.Matthew Lampert - 2020 - Cultural Critique 106 (Winter 2020):1-26.
    Jacques Rancière presents much of his work as a political intervention, exposing the ways in which so-called critical theory gets “recuperated” in service of oppression and the status quo. But Rancière’s own interventions are ambiguously situated with respect to these same issues. A major source of frustration for Rancière’s readers is locating any kind of positive claim about the role theory could or should play within politics. I argue that, while Rancière’s later work depoliticizes itself, we might look to his (...)

    Corporate Social Responsibility and the Supposed Moral Agency of Corporations.Matthew Lampert - 2016 - Ephemera 16 (1):79-105.
    Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been traditionally framed within business ethics as a discourse attempting to identify certain moral responsibilities of corporations (as well as get these corporations to fulfill their responsibilities). This theory has often been normatively grounded in the idea that a corporation is (or ought to be treated as) a moral agent. I argue that it is a mistake to think of (or treat) corporations as moral agents, and that CSR’s impotency is a direct result of this (...)

    Resisting Ideology: On Butler’s Critique of Althusser.Matthew Lampert - 2015 - Diacritics 43 (2):124-147.
    Judith Butler has built her theory of interpellation through critical engagement with the work of Louis Althusser. For Butler, interpellation explains how the subject emerges in and through language, and her critique of Althusser is meant to open up psychic and discursive space for resisting status quo interpellations and the dominant ideology. In this essay, I argue that Butler’s account of interpellation suffers from two problems: first, she misreads Althusser; second (and more importantly), her account is isolating and politically demotivating. (...)

    How to Do Things with Rancière.Matthew Lampert - 2017 - Comparative and Continental Philosophy 9 (1):96-106.
    Devin Zane Shaw’s new book Egalitarian Moments is an attempt to think with and through Jacques Rancière. Shaw’s highly original interpretation of Rancière opens space within Rancière’s thought for a new, expanded account of the politics of art and literature, and Shaw is then able to use this theory as a way of rereading the history of philosophy. Shaw’s project is ultimately an attempt to show that it is possible to do philosophy in an egalitarian way – that not all (...)

    Beyond the Politics of Reception: Jacques Rancière and the Politics of Art.Matthew Lampert - 2017 - Continental Philosophy Review 50 (2):181-200.
    Jacques Rancière’s work has become a major reference point for discussions of art and politics. However, while Rancière’s negative theses are becoming widespread and well understood, his positive thesis is still poorly understood, owing partly to Rancière’s own formulation of the issue. I first clarify Rancière’s account of the links between politics and art. I then explore a gap in this account; Rancière has stuck too closely to a politics of art’s reception. I argue for a politics of art production, (...)

    Towards a Rancièrean Critical Theory.Matthew Lampert - 2019 - Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 27 (2):95-126.
    While Jacques Rancière has never been affiliated in any way with the Institute for Social Research, this article examines the extent to which his work could be considered “Critical Theory” in the sense most closely associated with the Frankfurt School tradition. I argue that Rancière’s work is not critical theory in this narrow sense; I further lay out a kind of “Rancièrean” criticism of the very project of Frankfurt School Critical Theory. This in turn allows me to sketch out a (...)

    The Misinterpellated Subject. [REVIEW]Matthew Lampert - 2019 - Contemporary Political Theory 18 (3):171-174.
    James Martel’s The Misinterpellated Subject attempts to productively expand upon Althusser’s theory of interpellation through the development of a concept Martel calls “misinterpellation.” Martel puts this concept to use to develop a critical mode of reading as part of an explicitly political project, which Martel links with anarchism. The book is lofty in its ambitions, but the most interesting aspects of Martel’s book are buried beneath less compelling passages of literary criticism.
