    Considerations for an Update of the Concept of Social Totality Based Upon the Work of Georg Lukács.Alejandro Nahuel Alzu - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 62.
    In this paper I revisit the different elaborations of the concept of social totality that we can find through various moments of the work of the Marxist philosopher Georg Lukács, focusing on the understanding of the praxis of social agents tied to each of them. I begin with the analysis of this concept in his youth works and then I highlight a radical change of view between the characterizations found in History and class consciousness and Ontology of social being. My (...)

    Capital Par Excellence: On Money as an Obscure Thing.Werner Bonefeld - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 62.
    Against the background of the contemporary debate about financialisation, the paper conceptualises the capitalist labour economy as fundamentally a monetary system. It argues that money is not a capitalist means of organising its labour economy but that it is rather a capitalist end. The argument examines and finds wanting conceptions of money in political economy, including Keynesianism and neoliberalism, and argues that the debate about financialisation is fundamentally based on the propositions of political economy. It holds that Marx’s critique of (...)

    Ernst Bloch’s Religion Without God as an Outline of Critical Philosophy.Aníbal Pineda Canabal - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 62.
    One of the most original features of Ernst Bloch’s philosophy is the mixture of religious elements with an emancipation theory rooted in Marxism. However, his philosophy of religion is expressed in an unconventional way. It inherits the best products of the German soul in order to overcome the pessimism of the fin-de-siècle philosophies and revive the emancipatory struggles. This article explores the forms ofexpression of this thought in Bloch’s early philosophy through the analysis of his claim for “religion without God”, (...)

  4. The Imaginary of the Social Revolution. Collective Action and Representation.Carlos Alfonso Garduño Comparán - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 62.
    This text develops an approach to the problem of the forms of collective action and representation that can be proposed as alternatives with potential to transform social conditions beyond the ideological structure of the capitalist system. The concrete dilemmas of the revolutionary struggle are analyzed through the figures of Lenin and Robespierre, after a discussion of the arguments of Cornelius Castoriadis and SlavojŽižek on the possibility of self-institution of society and the need to link its multiplicity to a unitary representation. (...)

  5. Towards a Theory of Action: Ontology and Politics as Foundations of Herbert Marcuse’s Dialectical Phenomenology.Juliano Bonamigo Ferreira de Souza - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 62.
    This article seeks to analyze the modes of composition of the so-called dialectical phenomenology, proposed by Herbert Marcuse in 1928. It is one of his first writings, in which the author seeks to think of a theory of action whose starting point are the historical analyses derived from the historical materialism of Marx and Engels, orchestrated with the existential analytic provided by Being and time, by Heidegger. In order to interpret this pioneering philosophical architecture, we will first show how Marcusean (...)

    Marxian Critique of Equality in Modern Citizenship.Levy del Aguila Marchena - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 62.
    This paper sets forth Marx’s critique of equality as an essential dimension of modern citizenship. For this purpose, the paper traces a link between the early Marxian critique to the citizen “celestial sphere” with the ways in which production and circulation processes are articulated to set up modern societies, according to the commercial logic and the logic of capital. According to our thesis, Marx’s political economy provides someelements to better understand, and in a more comprehensive way, his early criticism, particularly (...)

  7. The Posters of May ’68 and Their Significance for a Contemporary Critique of Capitalism.Jones Irwin - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 62.
    This essay explores the original political significance of the posters of May ’68 as a critique of capitalism, as well as extending this approach to a critique of contemporary capitalism in 2020. The slogans of ’68 are deceptively simple and we look to the importance of the political ideas expressed aesthetically as having immediate impact in the late 1960s, but also the underlying Situationist philosophy which influenced them.We also explore the contemporary significance of Situationist theory, especially in the context of (...)

    Fetishism and Narcissism - the Base of Capitalism?Anselm Jappe - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 62.
    This article tries to resume Karl Marx’ concept of “commodity fetishism”, not just as a phenomenon of conscience, but as being the real heart of capitalist society based on abstract labor and value, money and commodity. This concept is often misunderstood, as well as the concept of “narcissism”. Following Freud and Christopher Lasch, the article underlines the sociological side of narcissism and how this pathology is the psychological counterpart to commodity fetishism, forming thus the typical subjectivity of consumerism.

    Alphaville --Insurgent Poetry. A Portrait of Modern Nihilism.Alfredo Gómez Muller - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 62.
    Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville puts forward a cultural critique of modern capitalism in a poetic form. The film subverts the standard classification of cinematographic “genres” and of cinematographic languages, without separating the content of the criticism from its form of expression. Thus, it uses an original language that integrates both philosophical and poetic referents, putting together elements from the dystopic imagination, the science fiction, the romantic film, and other cinematographic “genres”. Unlike Orwell and Huxley’s dystopias, Alphaville depicts a deeper, insidious, invisible (...)

  12. Heidegger and the Reminiscent Thinking.Luis Eduardo Gama Barbosa - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 61.
    Within the variety of subjects considered by Heidegger after Being and time, the notion of ‘thinking’ stands out for its constant presence and for the central place it occupies in a large part of his later work. In fact, as a path towards overcoming metaphysics and as a means of rethinking the relationship between humans and being, distorted in the world of technique, Heidegger uses the exercise of thinking that is not only the heritage of philosophers, but is latent in (...)

  14. Transhumanism: A Turn of the Screw on Heidegger’s Question Concerning Technology.Diana María Muñoz González - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 61.
    The so-called transhumanist project is anthropotechnic and aims at the enhancement of human physical and cognitive capabilities through the employment of new technologies. Nevertheless, when viewed through the lens of Heidegger’s philosophy, the project appears to confirm his own view on modern technology. According to Heidegger, the essence of modern technology is to serve as an ontological framework in which beings are unconcealed as a totality of resources or stock items. Thus, the first part of this paper examines Heidegger’s approach (...)

    Authentic Existence in the Age of Technique?Claudia Marcela Gómez Herrera - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 61.
    In his early writings, Heidegger argues that existence fluctuates between an authentic and an inauthentic mode of being. One of the differences of these modes of existence is the way in which time is experienced in each other. This paper aims to propose a link between these notions of temporality and, in the light of that link, to determine the main features of the authentic mode of being in the age of technique. To achieve this goal, I analyze a quote (...)

    Heidegger, Barbaras and Patočka: Original Event and Historicity.Germán Darío Vélez López - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 61.
    The multiple hermeneutical tasks that Heidegger undertook at the end of the ontological interpretation of Dasein in Being and time, prevented him from dealing with the problem of the time-movement relationship. However, this analysis requires tracing the relationship between the time of the Dasein and the time of the world in its entirety, so that the occurrence of existence and its inscription in such a world-wide event can be thought. Thus, this article seeks to determine the link between the original (...)

    The Leap of Thinking: The Phenomenological Attitude That Distances Us From the Metaphysical Wandering.Juan Sebastián Ortiz López - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 61.
    Heidegger’s late writings make constant allusion to a way of thinking that differs from metaphysics. While in metaphysical thinking we wander away from being, in the new thinking we are only in relation to being. For Heidegger, the only way to get out of the first and reach the second one is through a leap. This paper aims to clarify why there is only one way to access this new way of thinking and to defend that this is the radicalization (...)

    Ways of Being and Expressivity.dos Reis & Róbson Ramos - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 61.
    In this paper, I present a hermeneutic version of ontological pluralism, addressing the question of the discursive articulation of ways of being. The first section presents the notion of a pluralism of ways of being as a restriction of an ontological monism. The second section puts forward a criticism of Kris McDaniel’s proposal of understanding ways of being as kinds of quantifiers. The third section analyses the notion of way of being as a modal concept, explaining ways of being as (...)

    Remarks on the Concept of Phenomenological Destruction in Martin Heidegger. One Hundred Years After the Lectures of 1919-1920.Carlos Arturo Bedoya Rodas - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 61.
    This article examines the genesis of the concept of destruction in the early lectures of Martin Heidegger between 1919 and 1920. The article claims that, by analyzing the phenomenological framework from which that concept arises, it is possible to reach a better understanding of Heidegger’s philosophical work and its relevance today. The article traces some of the sources of this concept, in particular with reference to Husserl’s concept of Abbau. Subsequently, the paper studies the articulation in the lectures of 1919 (...)

  21. The Truth of the Body. Heidegger and the Ambiguity of the Bodily.Ángel Xolocotzi Yáñez - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 61.
    Martin Heidegger’s remarks in Being and time on the contrast between the modernly thought corporeality based on a mixture of soul-body, of Cartesian roots, and the existential corporeality from the being-in-the-world of Dasein, are widely known. After that, the major thematization on the body goes back to the Zollikon Seminars. This article looks for new ways of understanding the body based on what Heidegger considers as the ambiguity of truth in the various versions of the lecture “Of the essence of (...)

    What Does Philosophizing Mean? Interpretation on the Object and the Condition of Martin Heidegger’s Ontology.Diego Martínez Zarazúa - 2020 - Estudios de Filosofía (Universidad de Antioquia) 61.
    Martin Heidegger’s influence over the contemporary philosophical landscape is indisputable. However, it is not always clear what the point is in his understanding of philosophy as ontology, namely, as a question about the being. In order to clarify this, and mostly by using a vocabulary different from Heidegger’s, in this paper I offer my interpretation of his philosophy as a non-positive form of ontological investigation. That is to say, as a question about the being that rejects any attempt of an (...)
