    A Tale of Two Social Philosophies.Roberto Frega - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (2):260-272.
    The resurgence of pragmatism in political philosophy that has taken place in the last thirty years has been dominated by two main theoretical moves, the first consisting in reclaiming it as part of the liberal tradition, the second consisting in inscribing it within the broad camp of critical theories. Prominent in this second perspective have been the contributions of several representatives of the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory. As is known, Jürgen Habermas’s theory of deliberative democracy depends heavily on John (...)

    The Critical Nature of Gender: A Deweyan Approach to the Sex/Gender Distinction.Gregoratto Federica - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (2):273-285.
    One of the most controversial questions in feminist philosophy, and maybe the most controversial of all, concerns our determination as sexual or gendered human beings: Is it nature or is it our culture, or society, that makes us what we are—women, men, other? And if it is both, to what extent and in which sense is it nature, and to what extent and in which sense is it social life? Whatever the answer may be, one widespread and allegedly useful modality (...)

    Dewey's Progressive Historicism and the Problem of Determinate Oughts.Arto Laitinen - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (2):245-259.
    This article has three sections. The first makes introductory notes invoking Dewey’s views of human agency stressing the notions of habits and practices. The second section suggests that Dewey’s general view on ethics, normativity, and the grounds of social criticism belongs to a “progressive historicist” camp, which tries to avoid appeals to universal Archimedean standpoints and avoid a collapse into unconstrained relativism.1 That section will introduce the notion of an “evaluative framework,” which can be embodied both implicitly in practice and (...)

    Dewey's Critical Conception of Work.Emmanuel Renault - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (2):286-298.
    Contemporary scholarship generally underestimates the importance of the reference to work in Dewey’s social and political philosophy. This underestimation results mainly from two reasons. The first relates to a general marginalization of work issues in contemporary social and political philosophy. The second reason is that neopragmatist readings of Dewey usually depict his political philosophy as a deliberative theory of democracy, or as a democratic experimentalism, in which the work issue has no specific role to play, being one of many in (...)

    Immanent Critique as Self-Transformative Practice: Hegel, Dewey, and Contemporary Critical Theory.Arvi Särkelä - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (2):218-230.
    Every model of critique establishes a double bind to critical practice. On the one hand, it has to entail a normative conception of how to proceed in critical practice such that the practice counts as truly critical: the model gives authoritative directions for critical practice, and it evaluates specific practices as more or less critical. As the model is one of immanent critique, it does this by accounting for how the standard the critical procedure employs inheres in the object, social (...)

  11. John Dewey and Social Criticism: An Introduction.Arvi Särkelä & Justo Serrano Zamora - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (2):213-217.
    Critical social theories are generally understood to be distinct from other normative theories by their explicit orientation toward emancipation: they not only present normative criteria for assessing the legitimacy or justification of social institutions or merely inquire into the actualized freedom of a given form of social life but claim to point toward a “freedom in view”—an end that might aid those participating in social struggles to overcome the pathological, alienated, or ideological social order of the present. John Dewey’s social (...)

    The Authority of Life: The Critical Task of Dewey's Social Ontology.Italo Testa - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (2):231-244.
    A peculiar socio-ontological approach is to be found in Dewey’s writings of the twenties—mainly in Human Nature and Conduct, Experience and Nature, and The Public and Its Problems. According to Dewey, it is proper of social and political facts to be dependent on human activity and still exhibit an “objective reality.” Such facts exist out there, have causal consequences, and have objectively knowable properties : they are, to use John Searle’s phrase, “epistemologically objective”.1 When it comes to understanding how social (...)

    In the last three decades, ongoing debates on the epistemic features of democratic decision making have influenced the way we conceive the basic terms of democratic theory, such as inclusion, participation, public reason, and collective autonomy.1 Within these debates, attention has been given to the role played by mobilized collectives in the generation of the knowledge necessary for the enhancement of the epistemic quality of those processes. However, little attention has been given to a further epistemic function of mobilizations: the (...)

    The Primordial Forms of Autopoiesis: It Is Self-Assemblage All the Way Down.Vincent Colapietro - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (1):190-206.
    Nature makes every creature do its own work and get its living [or being]. … The planet makes itself. The animal cell makes itself. … As soon as there is life, there is self-direction and absorbing and using of material. Life is freedom,—life in the direct ratio of its amount.In “A Sketch of the Past,” Virginia Woolf suggests: “Behind the cotton wool [of everyday life] is hidden a pattern.” She insists “that we—I mean all human beings—are connected with this; that (...)

    America as Assemblage of Placeways: Toward a Meshwork of Lifelines.Robert E. Innis - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (1):40-62.
    John Brinckerhoff Jackson in his A Sense of Place, a Sense of Time writes, “Much of our contemporary American landscape can no longer be seen as a composition of well-defined individual spaces—farms, counties, states, territories, and ecological regions—but as zones of influence and control of roads, streets, highways: arteries which dominate and nourish and hold a landscape together and provide it with instant accessibility.”1 Jackson’s notion of zones has important experiential and semiotic consequences for the structures of experiencing. A zone (...)

    The conceptual ambiance, the assemblage of ideas, of A Thousand Plateaus enables a rich kind of tracing of the logic or set of logics related to desires and forces while it makes difficult, if not impossible, a certain form of understanding.2 The topic of “American assemblages” seemed as though it might be a useful figure under which to think through the coming together of labor and its dissolution at the end of the nineteenth century in Chicago. As I will argue (...)

    The courage is in letting go of something old that has been successful and has its own momentum.“As an assemblage, a book has only itself,” say Deleuze and Guattari. It exists “in connection with other assemblages and in relation to other bodies without organs. We will never ask what a book means, as signified or signifier; we will not look for anything to understand in it. We will ask what it functions with, in connection with what other things it does (...)

  21. He Saw What Was Going to Happen in the World and Put It on Stage.Mary Magada-Ward - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (1):177-189.
    I take as my title a claim made by Arthur Mitchell about George Balanchine’s 1957 ballet Agon. Mitchell, a MacArthur Fellow, U.S. Medal of Arts winner, and founder of the Dance Theatre of Harlem,1 was the first African American principal dancer in the history of the New York City Ballet. Most importantly for my purposes, he was also the premier danseur upon whom Balanchine choreographed the central pas de deux of Agon. Mitchell’s partner was the ballerina Diana Adams, whom Balanchine (...)

    The U.S. Border and the Political Ontology of "Assassination Nation": Thanatological Dispositifs.Mendieta Eduardo - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (1):82-100.
    The U.S.-Mexican border es una herida abierta where the Third World grates against the first and bleeds. And before a scab forms it hemorrhages again, the lifeblood of two worlds merging to form a third country—a border culture. Borders are set up to define the places that are safe and unsafe, to distinguish us from them. A border is a dividing line, a narrow strip along a steep edge. A borderland is a vague and undetermined place created by the emotional (...)

    Religion and the "Religious": Cormac McCarthy and John Dewey.Robert Metcalf - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (1):135-154.
    Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where (...)

    Nepantla: Writing the In-Between.Charles Scott & Nancy Tuana - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (1):1-15.
    And I now call it Nepantla, which is a Nahuatl word for the space between two bodies of water, the space between two worlds. It is a limited space, a space where you are not this or that but where you are changing. You haven’t got into the new identity yet and haven’t left the old identity behind either—you are in a kind of transition. And that is what Nepantla stands for. It is very awkward, uncomfortable and frustrating to be (...)

    An angel is just a belief, with wings […]Melting pot, multicultural mosaic, and welcoming recipient of the world’s tired, poor, huddled masses. Land of opportunity. Shining city on a hill, land of the free, and home of the brave. These are just some of the images of America that are supposed to represent its virtues or at least its aspirations.1 When treated as preordained truisms about what America is or means, these concepts can produce dogmatic, rigid, and reactionary attitudes toward (...)

    The Job of Creating Desire: Propaganda as an Apparatus of Government and Subjectification.Cory Wimberly - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (1):101-118.
    Abstract: This article addresses shortcomings in the way that philosophers and cultural critics have considered propaganda by offering a new genealogical account. Looking at figures such as Marx, Adorno, Marcuse, Habermas, Bourdieu, and Stanley, this article finds that their consideration of propaganda has not necessarily been wrong but has missed some of the most significant and important functions of propaganda. This text draws on archival and published materials from propagandists, most notably Edward Bernays, to elaborate a new governmentality of propaganda (...)
