“The Lived Revolution: Solidarity With The Body In Pain As The New Political Universal”
The book brings back the interest in the “radical concepts” in politics to the intellectual debate after 6 years. Kolozova builds on the hybridization of the epistemic stance of “radical concepts” inspired by Laruelle’s “non-philosophy” and “non-Marxism” as well as the “realism” inspired by Zizek and Badiou. Kolozova explores these terms through the lenses of Judith Butler’s politics of grief and “identification with the suffering itself.” Radical concepts, the political vision and the theory based on them, are always already succumbing to the “Lived” (Laruelle), to the singularity of the Event (Badiou), to the encounter with the “kernel of the Real” (Zizek) conditioning a political horizon and the grand and small political narratives taking place within it. The thesis of the book is that the instances of the “lived,” the “event” or the “Real” can be inherently inter-connected by virtue of the category of the “experience” which is an instance of the sheer lived, the bare being subjected to an occurrence which is always already an instance of trauma.
