  1. Gabriela Basterra (2013). Reason's Other in Quotation Marks: Nietzsche on Tragedy and Doubling. Philosophy and Social Criticism 39 (9):0191453713490716.
    This article explores the ways in which Nietzsche’s conception of subjectivity, as rehearsed in The Birth of Tragedy, draws close to other modern models of split subjectivity as described by Hegel, Freud, or Althusser. Although the subjectivity depicted by Nietzsche is constituted in the tension between reaffirming and dissolving its boundaries, and this tension may seem to put the possibility of identity at risk, in effect individuation and dissolution function as symmetrical contraries. Rather than disrupting the boundaries of reason, the (...)

    Kant’s introduction of freedom in the third antinomy of pure reason is momentous.1 In this antinomy reason famously rehearses the tension between freedom and determinism, between spontaneity and receptivity, and thus the paradox whereby the thinking I of transcendental apperception must present itself as passive, as a passive empirical consciousness subjected to natural causality. If we compare this first dynamic conflict with the mathematical failure to form the idea of the world, here reason succeeds in forming a synthesis of causal (...)

  8. Gabriela Basterra (2004). Seductions of Fate: Tragic Subjectivity, Ethics, Politics. Palgrave Macmillan.
    If the tragic interpretation of experience is still so current, despite its disastrous ethical consequences, it is because it shapes our subjectivity. Instead of contradicting the ideals of autonomy and freedom, a modern subjectivity based on self-victimization in effect enables them. By embracing subjection to an alienating other (the Law, Power) the autonomous subject protects its sameness from the disruption of real people. Seductions of Fate stages a dialogue between this tragic agent of political emancipation and the unconditional ethical demands (...)
