I’m curious to see if the rest of his thought on politics could be described as Arendtian to a degree. On a very general level, he provides some interesting insights in conceptualizing the concept of the police as a sort of regimented array of the sensible that extends the concept into a very broad term.

Perhaps his most relevant observation is the way in which the aesthetic plays into his notion of the political, which creates a dissensus between different symbolic orders. Remains one of my contemporary favorites.

Jacques Rancière – SEMEIØN : Signs – Discourse – Politics

Brian Jenkins rated it really liked it Sep 07, Recommended for those who follow politics and philosophy. No trivia or quizzes yet. When such an English-language author takes on dense literary and art-critical subjects, the rancierf I must traverse in grasping the higher-level concepts being communicated, and in understanding the often esoteric terminology deployed, is not so great as to make the reading terribly laborious.

Ryan rated it it was amazing Jan 25, Together these essays serve as a superb introduction to the work of one of the world’s most influential contemporary thinkers. This is one of the best books on politics that i can imagine, thought definitely not a novel! But if you want any use from Ranciere, it requires re-tethering his concepts with the actual practices how how art and politics actually functions.

Want to Read saving…. Johannes Pause rated it desacuerddo liked it May 06, The communication is half-completed upon merely shaking hands. Hannes rated it really liked it Jun 06, He falls in a long line of extremely abstract French thought.

Jay rated it liked it Dec 09, Whenever I read a book on literary theory or art criticism that was written in another language and translated into English, my first, usually regrettable, task is to discern where the author is really coming from. This book jacues me from my philosophical slumber for a while. Aesthesis, what a fancy word.

The distance greatly expands when the author and translator were both born and raised in some distant country — France, for example.

Having read this alongside Arendt’s material, colleagues wanted to conflate his critique of Arendt Having only read the article on human rights contra Arendt contained in this collection, Ranciere is doing something intriguing with politics. Estos poderes constitutivos, virtuales, entran en interminable conflicto con los poderes constituidos del Imperio.

It is also fascinating.

His critique of political art, which doesn’t necessarily lead to action ep can often descend into a parody of critiqueis in part insightful. Having read this alongside Arendt’s material, colleagues wanted to conflate his critique of Arendt with her ideas of politics in order to claim that he endorses what he dl to critique.

His choice of an English word in a certain situation is usually quite different from my choice in the identical situation. He prioritizes non-mimetic art in problematic ways, has rather formalistic notions of how art operates–divested from context, holds a penchant for the counter-intuitive over the obvious. He introduces a distinction between politics a space of dissensus and the police a space of consensus.

A redefinition of politics as agonistic discourse independent of the “police order” which we normally take as “politics.

After jumping through all these hoops I’m finally in a place, often by the third read, to solidly benefit from the book. Ranciere also has a big section on Aesthetics, but I don’t feel I got as much out of that portion because I’m not very familiar with aesthetic theory. Engaging in critique of the instituted divisions, then, paves the way for renewing our interrogations into what we are able to think and to do.

That’s where I am with Dissensus right now. However, to say that is a mistake insofar as Ranciere recognizes being marginalized in a way which Arendt would simply brush off, describe as unpolitical or say that it can be overcome through performativity. Estamos situados precisamente en esa bisagra de la finitud infinita que enlaza lo virtual con lo posible, comprometida con el pasaje desde el deseo a un futuro venidero. This important collection includes several essays that have never previously been published in English, as well as a brand new afterword.

In other words, his concepts loftily escape the orbit of reality often– not that this makes them irrelevant.
