  1. Misel večnega vračanja v Nietzschejevem zvezku M III.Aleš Bunta - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (3).
    The article is primarily a study of Nietzsche’s unpublished fragments from the period spring-autumn 1881, in which Nietzsche first developed his thought of the “eternal recurrence of the same.” In the article, I attempt to accomplish two goals: the first goal is to explain Nietzsche’s theses on the eternal recurrence, which at that time were still remarkably clear and coherent. And the second goal is to try to find in these same theses an explanation for their future silence. In other (...)

  3. Sadizem, Schadenfreude in krutost.Peter Klepec - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (3).
    The article starts from the question of where the theses that we are ruled by sadists today come from, both in conspiracy theories and in explanations of the prevalence of violence and cruelty in modern society. The article first highlights some important recent changes in politics, economics, and society. The article then looks at the historical changes in the term “sadism”, which in the 19th and 20th centuries reduced Sade’s work to a clinical category, defined the meaning of “sadism” as (...)

    Dotik oblasti: štiri forme perverznih oblastnih prijemov.Mirt Komel - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (3).
    The article deals with four forms of power grabs through the conceptual connection between touch and power, focusing on four structural breakthroughs that show the changing process that this relation underwent, from the secularisation of the sacral via profane materialism until contemporary vulgar-materialism: Christian Noli me tangere; monarchic King’s Evil; materialistic Warenfetischismus; and profane Grab-’em-by-the-pussy.

    Rousseau, Nietzsche in vprašanje srca.Voranc Kumar - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (3).
    Rousseau and Nietzsche are philosophers between whom it is difficult to establish a dialogue that arises directly from their works, and yet there are connections between their philosophies, or in Nietzsche’s terms, perspectives, which open up a common issue: the question of evaluation. But to what does evaluation refer, to what value, or to the value of what does it refer? We want to show that it is an evaluation of the present in which thought takes place, which returns as (...)

    Nietzsche, Wagner, kompozicijski miniaturizem.Lovrenc Rogelj - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (3).
    Wagner’s reform of opera into musical drama introduced new formal solutions, which have been sparking discussions between analysts from the moment Wagner’s mature works premiered. It was Friedrich Nietzsche who formulated the most famous critique of Wagner’s alleged inability to handle great forms, which stems from miniaturism as the principal compositional characteristic, or even as the main symptom of Wagner’s decadent style. Drawing from Karol Berger’s book Beyond Reason, this paper will look at the historical context of Nietzsche’s reproach, question (...)

  8. Konec pandemije in sadizem normalizacije.Tadej Troha - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (3).
    The article discusses the structural dynamics of the Covid 19 pandemic and defines it as an essentially finite crisis. However, this definition does not simply come down to the abstract necessity that the pandemic must end at some point, but rather to the fact that the idea of an end has determined the entire course of the pandemic. From the outset, this idea took two antagonistic forms: From the first perspective, the pandemic can only be ended by eliminating the source (...)

  9. Newtonova kritika Descartesovega pojmovanja gibanja.Matjaž Vesel - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (3).
    The author argues that Newton’s distinction between absolute and relative motion, i.e. the refusal to define motion in relation to sensible things, in “Scholium on time, space, place and motion” from Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy, stems in great part from his critical stance towards Descartes’s philosophy of nature. This is apparent from the comparison of “Scholium”, in which Descartes is not mentioned at all, with Newton’s criticism of him in his manuscript De gravitatione. The positive results of Newton’s encounter (...)

    Izumrtje in ponovljivost konca: Wells, Cuvier, Nietzsche.Marisa Žele - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (3).
    The paper explores the contact between the literary notion of the end of the world as depicted in H.G. Wells’s science fiction novel The Time Machine and the concept of extinction, in the sense developed by the French naturalist Georges Cuvier, who at the turn of the 19th century formulated a thesis about the structure of the world with a built-in end. The time traveller in Wells’s novel is driven into the distant future by an obsessive desire to know the (...)

    Politika perverzije: rasizirana razlika in skupno dobro.Andreja Zevnik - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (3).
    When anti-racist protestors toppled the statue of Edward Colston in Bristol in June 2020, British political elites across the left-rights spectrum, despite acknowledging that a statue of a slave trader has no place in the contemporary politics, called to firm the application of law and order. Through the example of Edward Colston, the essay examines what Lacan’s idea of perversion can reveal about the power relations between political elites and anti-racist protestors. It opens by discussing the impossibility of ethics in (...)

    Worlds as Transcendental and Political Fictions.Rok Benčin - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    By examining the idea found in the works of several contemporary philosophers that the multiplicity of worlds is no longer merely possible – as it was for Leibniz – but actually determines our experience of reality, the article proposes an understanding of worlds as transcendental structures that frame the ontological multiplicity. The article argues that such a proliferation of actual worlds implies that the concept of world should be seen today as a category that belongs to the order of fiction, (...)

    The World: The Tormented History of an Inescapable Para-Concept.Bruno Besana - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    The world has not always been there. At least not in philosophy. This two-part article examines the complex interplay of concepts among which the idea of the world appeared, and analyses the characteristics that allow it to play a central role in the space of philosophy. These are found to be fundamentally two. First, its capacity to identify with the idea of a closed, ordered totality, at the same time as it erodes the consistency of the latter and opens the (...)

    The Anatomy of the World.Magdalena Germek - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    In this article, we discuss Badiou’s concept of the world through the somewhat unusual metaphor of “the anatomy of the world”. The anatomy of the world allows us to approach the concept of the world through the idea of ​​its constitution, architecture, structure – its anatomy. But as we show in the first part of the text, in order to derive the anatomy of the world, we need a corpse of the world – the world must die. Following the philosophy (...)

    Architecture and the Distribution of the Sensible.Nika Grabar - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    Following Theodor W. Adorno’s reading of architecture as a purposeful art, the article explores how the social dimension is inscribed into the purposes ascribed to architecture by establishing a relation between what Adorno calls a sense of architectural space and the distribution of the sensible as defined by Jacques Rancière. Considering Rancière’s understanding of the political dimension of different “regimes of art”, the article attempts to show how similar observations can be made regarding architecture. What implications do these regimes of (...)

    World.Marina Gržinić - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    The main thesis of this text is that for a critical evaluation of the institutions built on the foundations of colonialism that preserve the worlds of neoliberal global capitalism, financial capitalism, and necro-capitalism, we need to rethink the two main divisions mediated by decolonial theory and decolonisation as analytical tools: the racial/colonial divide and the imperial/colonial divide. This text attempts to analyse the relation between capitalism and colonialism in order to determine the implications for the theoretical and philosophical thought of (...)

    World? Which World? On Some Pitfalls of a Concept.Peter Klepec - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    “The world” as a concept necessarily involves many difficulties and contradictions. The text presents some of them in a rather circular way, underlining the fact that we are always confronted with the dilemma of what to do with the world, or rather, what, which, and whose world we are dealing with. Beginning with some arguments about the claim that “the world is,” and then moving on to certain dilemmas related to some views on the two-world theory, one inevitably comes across (...)

    Dispersed are we : roman des mondes et monde du roman dans Between the Acts, de Virginia Woolf.Jean-Jacques Lecercle - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    Drawing on a forthcoming book by Rok Benčin on the concept of world, the article proposes a reading of _Between the Acts_ by Virginia Woolf that focuses on the dialectic of dispersion and unity. The novel presents a multiplicity of dispersed and fragmented transcendental frameworks that tend towards – an attempt that is always doomed to fail, but always begins anew – unification within the ideological apparatuses. In this endless dialectic, literature occupies a singular place, for the fictional structure of (...)

    Spectres of Eternal Return: Benjamin and Deleuze Read Leibniz.Noa Levin - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    The late reflections of G.W. Leibniz on eternal return have often been dismissed as insignificant as regards his wider philosophy. This may be due to the prevalent championing of his optimistic views on the continual progress of humanity, which seem to contradict the notion of eternal return. Walter Benjamin and Gilles Deleuze both put forward concepts of eternal return that form part of their respective critiques of historical progress, yet these have rarely been read in conjunction with their views on (...)

    How the True World Finally Became Virtual Reality.Anna Longo - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    As David J. Chalmers claims, “virtual reality is a sort of genuine reality, virtual objects are real objects, and what goes on in virtual reality is truly real.” In this paper, I will suggest that the philosophical hypothesis that we might live in a simulation can be considered to be the last and most nihilistic episode in the series of narrations about the true and apparent worlds that Nietzsche sketched in The Twilight of the Idols. I will argue that Nietzsche’s (...)

    Capital, Logic of the World.Nick Nesbitt - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    Despite his longstanding silence regarding Marx’s Capital, I wish here to argue that Badiou has in fact, in the three volumes of Being and Event, produced the materials for a contemporary logic of the capitalist social form. He has done so, however, in the form of an arsenal of abstract concepts that have yet to be precisely measured against Marx’s critical and formal reproduction of capitalism, the systematic exposition of which consumes the three volumes of Capital. I first argue that (...)

    The Actuality of a World: What Ceases Not to Be Written.Ruth Ronen - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    “There is no longer any world,” wrote the late philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy in 1993, and in this paper, the sense of this loss of world is analysed in terms of the modal notions of necessity, impossibility, and possibility. Modal differentiation can illuminate what constitutes the sense of actuality in a world, and hence, what it is that has been lost regarding this actuality of being in a world. Modal thinking does not rely on knowledge of the true state of affairs, (...)

    On Acosmic Realism.Roland Végső - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    In order to be able to raise the question of the “world” today in an effective way, we have to reactivate the Goethean categories of Weltliteratur and Weltschmerz for a critique of our own historical moment. We need to understand the phenomenon of Weltschmerz as a symptom of the impossibility of Weltliteratur. Going beyond the context of the original formulation of these categories, we could argue that something akin to the historical phenomenon of Weltschmerz emerges every time the ideological constitution (...)

    The End of Life Is Not the Worst: On Heidegger’s Notion of the World.Jan Völker - 2022 - Filozofski Vestnik 42 (2).
    The article proposes to reconsider the late Heidegger’s examination of the concept of the world, as for Heidegger the eradication of all life on planet earth is not the most horrible thing that could happen. It is the impossibility of thinking the world that exposes us to something worse: the loss of our link with being. Following Heidegger, to think the world is not only necessary to prevent the extinction of life on earth, but, moreover, the loss of thinking the (...)
