Energy and event: An Essay in Nafthology deals a so much unexpected
materialism in an age probably replete with “new” ones. For whereas the
physical connotations of power trace at a conjunction facing matter
and our event of it (both strength and adventure could identify the
subject and item of subject over time), power proves during this publication to be
the identify for whatever totally different than topic stripped bare.
This a minimum of is the matter with which this publication starts, for “like the
notions of strength, will, paintings, and the sacred, power turns out to call at the
same time anything inner, immaterial, and religious and something
material, concrete, and actual” (9). hence we're dealing now not with matter
and the existence it leads, yet really the social, epistemological, political, and
philosophical determinations of an strength procedure chargeable for now not just
our capitalist modernity, yet such a lot of our suggestions approximately it, too. What’s
most unforeseen in regards to the materialism of Nafthology is for that reason that
energy, as soon as redefined no longer as metaphysical yet as time in topic, releases
materialism from the shackles of vulgar subject and the speculations we
might derive from it. in the meantime, it shall we us see a kinfolk resemblance
between strength and that different historic strength over topic, which this
book unhesitatingly calls capital.

Fragments by Heraclitus

By Heraclitus

Quel est le " véritable " Héraclite ? Celui de Hegel ? Celui de Nietzsche ? Celui de Heidegger ? Un autre ? los angeles présente édition des Fragments de son œuvre perdue vise, en conjuguant l'étude philologique et l'analyse philosophique, à restituer, autant que cela est attainable, l. a. pensée même d'Héraclite, dans son unité et sa cohérence. Ce qui surgit ainsi des ruines du texte est une constitution belle, un cosmos, une sorte de temple grec déployant son harmonie dans l. a. durée. Chaque fragment apporte sa précision nécessaire ; chacun est complémentaire de tous les autres, même si quelques-uns, plus décisifs, jouent le rôle de pierres de l'angle. De ce temple, profondément logique, émanent un rayonnement, une sagesse, un appel, un espoir. De l'éternelle vérité, aucun philosophe fut-il jamais dans une proximité plus grande ? Avec Héraclite, dit Hegel, " l. a. terre est en vue ".
