In today’s crisis-ridden world of globalized capitalism, it may seem harder than ever to think of ways out.
Philosophy runs the risk of becoming the handmaiden of science and of a hollowed-out democracy. But it is time for philosophy instead to return to the city, to the pólis, from which it was banished after the death of Socrates, and to rediscover its political potential. Critique and dissent are no longer enough. Mindful of a defeated exile and inner emigration, philosophers need new alliances and new visions. Donatella Di Cesare tries to delineate how, suggesting a radical existentialism and a new anarchism.
