    ‘La Herida de Un Hombre No Es Una Novedad’: Gender, Violence and Performance in Azul y No Tan Rosa.Katie Brown - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (2):147-152.
    Azul y no tan rosa was the first Venezuelan film to win the Goya for Best Spanish Language Foreign Film. It was also the first Venezuelan film to feature a kiss between two men, as well as an openly transgender character. At the heart of the film is a scene which cross-cuts between transsexual Delirio performing the 1980s Venezuelan pop hit ‘No soy una señora’ and a vicious homophobic attack. This scene exemplifies the film’s preoccupation with the performance of gender, (...)

    «Potencia, no poder». De la fotografía como gesto de resistencia y migración.Elena Cardona - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (2):153-178.
    Resumen Hay imágenes poderosas y hay imágenes potentes. Todavía más, hay imágenes potentes que hacen resistencia al poder, que son acto y gesto de resistencia en sí mismas. Entre marzo y agosto del año 2017 la sociedad venezolana vivió uno de los períodos más sensibles de la ya prolongada crisis institucional del país, caracterizada visiblemente por cotidianas protestas de calle duramente reprimidas por las fuerzas de seguridad del Estado, fenómeno que fue nombrado por los medios de comunicación internacionales como la (...)

    Bolívar Echeverría y Las Asimultaneidades de la Modernidad Capitalista: Ethos Barroco y Blanquitud.Cristina Catalina - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (2):187-201.
    This article presents an approach to the way in which Bolívar Echeverría, based on his reformulation of Marxist criticism, attempts to locate in the truncated configurations of Latin American modernity potentials for resisting the universal expansion of the value form. Drawing on his distinction between modernity and capitalism, as well as his interpretation of the fundamental tension between natural form and value form, the article exposes Exheverría’s historical analysis of the triumph of the realist ethos over the baroque ethos of (...)

    Errant Anarchaeologies, the Disjunction of Borges and the Yagán Dog.Gonzalo Díaz-Letelier - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (2):137-145.
    This article addresses the concept of ‘anarchaeological reading’ proposed by Erin Graff Zivin, putting it at stake, on the one hand, in the reading of the temporal disjunction of the Borges reader of the question of eternity in Plato and, on the other, in the pointing out of the colonially regimented interpretation of the link between Yagán Indians and fox-dogs in southern Patagonia made by a European ‘Indian hunter’ at the end of the nineteenth century.

    «Fuera de Lugar»: Roberto Schwarz y la Centralidad de la Experiencia Periférica.Jordi Maiso - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (2):119-135.
    This article analyses Roberto Schwarz’s contributions to understanding the significance of Brazilian culture in relation to the way in which it is embedded in the dynamics of global capitalism. At first, it analyses to what extent his approach to Latin American culture can be understood as a dialectical alternative to postcolonial and subaltern studies. Then, based on his analysis of the intertwining of artistic form and social reality, it focuses on how Schwarz reveals the significance of Machado de Assis’ late (...)

  6. (U)Topías Del Pensamiento Decolonial: Guamán Poma y Euroamérica.Rodrigo Castro Orellana - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (2):179-186.
    This article analyses some of the main aspects that characterize the genealogy of thought proposed by the so-called decolonial turn. The article focuses on a specific case: Walter Mignolo’s interpretation of the work of Guamán Poma de Ayala, Primer nueva corónica y buen gobierno. In this context, I will present a critique of the reduction made of Guamán to a frontier thinker whose hallmark would be to introduce the question of the coloniality of power. I will propose as an alternative (...)

  9. Clarice Lispector y la desistencia de ser.Sergio Villalobos-Ruminott - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (2):203-221.
    Resumen A partir de una de las últimas novelas de la escritora brasileña, Clarice Lispector, A hora da estrela, y de la problematización de la relación entre literatura, representación y pobreza, este trabajo intenta dos cosas: mostrar el complejo mecanismo utilizado por Lispector en la elaboración de su novela, como un trabajo de des-narrativización que interrumpe el proceso representacional desde una elaboración minimalista de la trama y del personaje; y mostrar cómo, a partir de dicha presentación de la vida precaria (...)

    Uncovering Russian Communication Style Preferences: Monological Sequencing Versus Dialogical Engagement.Elena Fell - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (1):43-59.
    When we communicate with others, we usually know when we are expected to contribute to an evolving dialogue, such as during a debate, or when it is suitable to generate predictable responses, for example, at a marriage ceremony. However, in cross-cultural communication situations, communicating partners may have different assumptions in this respect. In particular, when a western communicator expects a dialogical development, a Russian participant may expect the same communication situation to progress as a sequence of predictable communication acts. This (...)

    Essaying Art: An Unmethodological Method for Artistic Research.Emily Huurdeman - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (1):25-42.
    Science must articulate its sources, as well as its relevance and its context, and it must provide clear argumentation. Furthermore, it is strictly bound to academic and ethical rules. Art is not constrained by these methods, ethics or rules. In the relatively new field of artistic research, science and art are integrated. However, the definition of this institutionalized field, and the methods and evaluation criteria of its output are debated. Can the scientific and artistic approaches be integrated into one coherent (...)

    A Letter to the Editors: Introducing The Examination and The Letter.William Lyons - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (1):61-65.
    Irish-Australian philosopher William Lyons is the author of the short films The Examination and The Letter. These are cinematographic manifestations of the author’s enterprise in communicating philosophical ideas beyond the formal conventions of professional philosophy. The present entry consists of an endearing and informative letter that Lyons enclosed with the films when he sent them to the editors of Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication upon their request. It is reproduced here verbatim as a preamble to the discussion (...)

    Sounds, Sufferings, Memories and Emotions.Victor Jeleniewski Seidler - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (1):7-24.
    Social researchers have long known that playing music to people can evoke memories of their pasts and bring people into a different relationship with themselves as the sounds move them to make connections with an earlier period in their lives. It has been discovered in patients with dementia that it could revive people to hear songs they have loved, which can help to bring them back from a state of inner withdrawal. Some researchers have given people portable music listening devices (...)

    On William Lyons’ Short Films About Wittgenstein (The Examination) and Arendt.Miguel E. Vásquez - 2020 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 11 (1):67-78.
    Can the history of philosophy transcend the reconstruction of facts and the causal relationships that bind them together? As such, it can also be said to facilitate the analysis of key philosophical problems inherent to the act of communicating the history of philosophy itself. In this article, such a possibility is explored from the vantage point of William Lyons’ short films The Examination and The Letter. These productions re-create certain episodes in the life of Ludwig Wittgenstein and Hannah Arendt with (...)
