Che cos'è un dispositivo?Vernance Is this lack of reedom better than a life of iron cages This is a painting one of my riends showed me a couple of months ago The Apostles PAUL AND PETER ON THE ROAD and Peter on the Road Martyrdom by Giovanni Serodine he said Agamben says the two apostles in this painting are so close that there s no way they can see each other hence a perfect allegory She Weeps Each Time You're Born forriendship I took a look It reminded me of I Corinthian 1312 also by Paul For now we see in the mirror dimly but then ace to ace That s an interesting take I told him Though that makes me wonder if the painter too had I Corinthian 1312 in mind and if yes did he mean to show Paul Seven Days, Seven Dinners finally comingace to A Northern Light face and still unable to see Is this about Paul being tried with doubt close to his end Iorgot all about the painting a little while later until a If You're Missing Baby Jesus: A True Story that Embraces the Spirit of Christmas few days ago when I decided I d want to take a closer look at it and maybe write up on I couldn t remember the name of the painting though so I asked myriend about it He couldn t remember it either but he could tell it s mentioned somewhere in What is an Apparatus by Agamben And that s how I came across this bookSerodine s painting is briefly mentioned in The Friend one of the three short essays of this book The three essays are each an attempt to define an important term Apparatus a key term in Focault s philosophy that roughly refers to the network of structures and mechanisms that serves a necessary unction or practicing power the Friend the philos a term so incredibly close to philosophy and yet so conceptually distant and the Contemporary a term perhaps useful to understand our relationship with the philosophical texts of our time Among the three Anne Perrys Christmas Crimes (Christmas Stories, friend remains the least defined term Serodine s painting inact is brought up as an example to portray the near impossibility of the conceptualization of riendshipEach essay is at least slightly inter. Amben's leading essay illuminates the notion 'I will call an apparatus' he writes 'literally anything that has in some way the capacity to capture orient determine intercept model control or secure the gestures behaviors opinions or discourses of living beings'Seen rom this perspective Agamben's work like Foucault's may be described as the identification and investigation of apparatuses together with incessant attempts to White Water find new ways to dismantle them Though philosophy contains the notion of philos orriend in its very name This is a very short collection of essays so short that I cannot imagine why anyone would buy it As with my last experience reading Agamben I don t get what the big deal is The irst essay is a clearly written explanation of the apparatus concept Special Agent found in Foucault and Deleuze Pretty interesting and sort of useful but ultimately just explaining something already developedThe second essay exploresriendship via Aristotle and covers some of the same territory #AS DERRIDA PRETTY INTERESTING BUT NOT GROUNDBREAKING AT ALLTHE #Derrida Pretty interesting but not groundbreaking at allThe essay is about time and it is probably the most original article in the book and it is probably the most original article in the book is the only article that calls Sleep with the Fishes for rereading and I sort of want to reread it next to the sections about time in Socie ok boomer Chapter 1 What is an Apparatus Separating divine being and governance Leaves us with the governance Governance needs a subject though object perhaps rather as per definition we separated itrom it s being and so we get us the subjects in our struggle with the governancedispotif apparatus But be careful because government can lead to catastrophic The Apache Wars: The Hunt for Geronimo, the Apache Kid, and the Captive Boy Who Started theLongest War in American History failure so make sure you uestion the apparatuses hand to hand profanation to reclaim themor yourself change them ind new ones understand their influence etcAlso cool is that the creation of apparatuses is part of being human We are aware of our environment or precisely our separationdistance rom it this introduced boredom the capacity to suspend this immediate relationship with disinhibitors but also the Open our awareness of the possibilities which we then crowd with instruments ie apparatuses because we want to A World on Fire further nullify our connection to animalistic nature to maximise our Open We want to enjoy being I would sayrom this there is no way to exist without apparatuses or iron cages of the spirit But what if we don t embrace conscious awareness Devoid ourselves of go. The three essays collected in this book offer a succinct introduction to Agamben's recent work through an investigation of Foucault's notion of the apparatus a meditation on the intimate link of philosophy to Setting Them Straight: You CAN Do Something About Bigotry and Homophobia in Your Life friendship and a reflection on contemporariness or the singular relation one may have to one's own time 'Apparatus' dispositif in French is at once a most ubiuitous and nebulous concept in Foucault's later thought In a text bearing the same name 'What is a dispositif' Deleuze managed to contribute to its mystification but Ag. Esting but neither one is stunning For Apparatus Agamben presents an interesting trace oikonomia the Church sinal resort or explaining the administration of divine power He also decides that #EVERYTHING WHICH HAS A POTENTIAL TO #which has a potential to and orient our lives may be considered as an apparatus and that man is in desperate need of a strategy to deal with them Restoring these apparatus to the ree is in desperate need of a strategy to deal with them Restoring these apparatus to the 100 ways to Fight the Flab - and still have wine and chocolate free of man or Profanation Agamben claims is the only counter apparatus that would do the job Yet heails badly to really explain what this really means or how it s even doableAlmost half of The Friend is spent on emphasizing the impossibility of its conceptualization and the other half on repeating a passage by Aristotle In What is Contemporary the third essay Agamben The Oxford New Greek Dictionary first asserts that being contemporary does not mean coinciding with one s time or even agreeing with it but it s about establishing a uniue relationship with that He then relies mostly on The Century a poem by Osip Mandelstaum to draw aew properties The Cello Suites : J.S. Bach, Pablo Casals, and the search for a Baroque masterpiece for his definition andurther elaborate itThere are not a ton of original ideas in this short book The New Job Security far less indispensable ones Yet at times one comes across interesting points discussed here and there that one might be able to pick uestion or build up on perhaps similar to how that painting has lingered and transformed in my mind Otherwise you might as well do without this one and go pick up a denser auspicious book that offers a better chance of proving didactic This book is so short and its essays such sketches that its price tag is its most shocking attribute The three essays rangerom very good to alright but none is particularly original The Title Essay Is title essay is hyper compression of the author s own The Kingdom and the Glory and will almost certainly be the most satisfying both theoretically and programmatically The Day Fidel Died: Cuba in the Age of Raúl, Obama, and the Rolling Stones (A Vintage Short) for better and worse thing Hilosophers tend to be very skeptical aboutriendship In his second essay Agamben tries to dispel this skepticism by showing that at the heart of The New Odyssey: The Story of Europe's Refugee Crisis friendship and philosophy but also at the core of politics lies the same experience the shared sensation of being Guided by the uestion 'What does it mean to be contemporary' Agamben begins the third essay with a reading of Nietzsche's philosophy and Mandelstam's poetry proceedingrom these to an exploration of such diverse The Jumbee fields asashion neurophysiology messianism and astrophysics. .
