Chapters from The Coming Community

2008, vol. 7, No. 2, pp. 47–54 [issue contents]

In the introduced fragments of the book by famous Italian philosopher G. Agamben some key symbolic figures of modernity or rather postmodern which are brought into a focus of sociality are considered. Because of his non-classical approach originally developing concepts of «waste» by G. Bataille and «inoperative community» by J.-L. Nancy, Agamben succeeds to show the necessity of radical de-ontologization of general clenches of social contemporaneity – «body», «language», «community», as a way of its shared re-reading. Re-reading within the community. The sketch of such a re-reading is proposed in the book.
