Ideas, Reforms, and the Alternative

Editorial

During the 1970s, the question of the alternative was thought to be fundamental. Following Herbert Marcuse’s One Dimensional Man, intellectuals engaged in an inquiry as to the possibility of a political alternative to the contemporary state of affairs. Already at that time though, their imaginings clashed with the widespread impression that the social and economic machine was moving forward of its own and it was not truly possible to affect its functioning. Next came the years of Margaret Thatcher and her TINA (There Is No Alternative)-dictum. Finally, the end of the 1990s saw the great digital revolution. In short, the revolution was carried out neither by political groups nor by nation states; rather, the revolution simply happened, as something unpredictable and unforeseen. The world today is certainly completely different from what it used to be, yet not in the sense that it constitutes an alternative to the capitalist system. Leggi tutto »

The Alternative in the Mediatized World: Between Visibility and Secret

24 ALTERNATIVE
Costa2

In this essay, I address the theme of the alternative starting from the question of whether alternatives are still possible in the time of the mediatized life world. Today, in a world where everything is a sign, to be truly such, an alternative should escape the logic of signs. Yet, as soon as an alternative appears in the mediatized life world, it appears always and necessarily as a sign, as a simulacrum of the alternative. Leggi tutto »

For an Alternative to Male Chauvinism: A Critique of Violence in Gender Relation

24 ALTERNATIVE
Mancini

The essay highlights how, in the system of inter-human relations, qualitative alternatives open up when one exits the logic of power and conforms instead to the dynamics of relational harmonization. Within this context, the node of men-women relations remains crucial. The multiple forms of violence upon women indicate that the causes of the problem are structural and not contingent.

What Is an Alternative?

24 ALTERNATIVE
Guglie

Through annotations and comments, this essay advances the definition of “the alternative” as follows. In a political sense, the alternative is the wager that if one intervenes at the right moment and in the right way, reality will unfold the way it should (could) by virtue of its profound dynamism, which however current and future hostile forces oppose unless the organized political action of favorable forces turns out to be effective.

The essay introduces the reader to the most remarkable features and achievements of the confederal movement in Northern Syria understood as an exceptional example of an effort to outline an alternative way for society in the current century.

Breakthrough and Anticipation: Images of the alternative in Jaspers and Bloch

24 ALTERNATIVE
Falappa

Nowadays walls, barriers, separation strategies seem to multiply. The article explores the theme of the regenerative power of philosophy in its orientation toward “breaking through” barriers of closed cultures and ideologies. The category of Durchbruch proposed by Karl Jaspers and the idea of thinking as the power to overcome boundaries, as proposed by Ernst Bloch, are taken up and updated in light of the main closures typical of the global world.
