Rethinking The Second Sex
by / RP 107 (May/Jun 2001) / Article

The Ethics of Ambiguity is well known as de Beauvoirʼs attempt to formulate an existentialist ethics; that is to say, an ethics premissed on the account of the lack at the heart of any human existence (ʻthe being whose being is not to beʼ) given by Sartre in Being and Nothingness.1 The ʻambiguityʼ of the …

Philosophizing the everyday

The philosophy of praxis and the fate of cultural studies

Arthur C. Danto

Art and analysis
by and / RP 090 (Jul/Aug 1998) / Interview

RP: Your philosophical work appears to be made up of two fairly distinct strands: what one might call a mainstream analytical strand and a more unconventional aesthetic strand. The second strand is dissident, first because itʼs about aesthetics – it takes art seriously, philosophically – and second because itʼs broadly Hegelian in inspiration. Historically, analytical …

The tremor of reflection

Slavoj Žižek's Lacanian dialectics
by / RP 072 (Jul/Aug 1995) / Article

At first glance, the work of the Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek seems to offer an irresistible range of attractions for theorists wishing to engage with contemporary culture, without accepting the flimsy postmodernist doxa which is often the only available gloss on it. Zizek’s thought is still strongly coloured by his Althusserian background, and …
