    Giorgio Agamben's Franciscan Ontology.Lorenzo Chiesa - 2009 - Cosmos and History 5 (1):105-116.
    This paper analyses Agamben’s notion of homo sacer, showing how it should not be confined to the field of a negative critique of biopolitics. In his work, Agamben cautiously delineates a positive figure of homo sacer, whom, according to him, we all virtually are. Such figure would be able to subvert the form in which the relation between bare life and political existence has so far been both thought and lived in the West. How and when is this passage from (...)

    Italian Thought Today: Bio-Economy, Human Nature, Christianity.Lorenzo Chiesa - 2011 - Angelaki 16 (3):1-5.
    This collection provides English readers with a critical update on current debates on biopolitics in and around Italian thought. More than a decade after the publication of seminal books such as Agamben’s Homo Sacer and Hardt and Negri’s Empire , the names of, among others, Roberto Esposito, Paolo Virno, Christian Marazzi, and Andrea Fumagalli have recently been brought to the attention of Anglophone scholars and political activists. Several authors have rightly emphasised the evanescent character of biopolitics, and the difficulty in (...)

    A Theatre of Subtractive Extinction: Bene Without Deleuze.Lorenzo Chiesa - 2009 - In Laura Cull (ed.), Deleuze and Performance. Edinburgh University Press. pp. 71.
    This chapter examines the relevance of Gilles Deleuze's work for the works of Italian director Carmelo Bene. It argues that Deleuze's One Less Manifesto conceived the theatre of continuous variation, particularly Bene's theatre, as one that is initiated and sustained by subtraction. It also questions the compatibility of Deleuze's vitalist concept of subtraction with Bene's own concept of the subtractive.

    Introduction: Italian Biopolitical Theory and Beyond: Genealogy, Psychoanalysis and Biology.Lorenzo Chiesa, Boštjan Nedoh & Marco Piasentier - 2016 - Paragraph 39 (1):1-9.
    This article tries to establish a possible dialogue between the way in which two influential contemporary theories, Roberto Esposito's biopolitical theory and Jacques Lacan's psychoanalysis, approach racism and the constitution of Otherness. After summing up key concepts in Esposito's theory, the article lays out the very deadlock in his work, represented by his assumption of racial difference or Otherness as inscribed in the bio-logical content of human life. However, by interpreting Jewishness under Nazism in terms of ‘undead’ ‘flesh without body’, (...)

    I don't think I'm exaggerating if I say that that [ ] which we concluded [ ] had thus far been neglected by all the commentators of the Symposium and that, for this reason, our commentary is a date in the continuation of the history of the development of the virtualities which are concealed by this dialogue.

    Of Bastard Man and Evil Woman, or, the Horror of Sex.Lorenzo Chiesa - 2012 - Film-Philosophy 16 (1):199-212.
    Lars von Trier’s Antichrist (2009) has often been described as a ‘gothic’, if not straightforwardly ‘horror’ movie. While this claim could easily be challenged with regard to strict genre definitions, it is doubtless the case that the film deals very explicitly with fear, first and foremost the female protagonist’s fear of herself, which is placed at the top of the so-called ‘pyramid of fear’ drawn by her therapist/wanna-be-Saviour partner. My opinion is that Antichrist perfectly displays the horrific effects of the (...)

    The Absence of the Sexual Relationship: A Transcendental Invariant of the Human Species?Lorenzo Chiesa - 2016 - Paragraph 39 (1):82-92.
    Is what psychoanalysis calls the ‘absence of the sexual relationship’ the basic transcendental invariant of the speaking animal? Or should it be understood as a historical product? Also, assuming that language is structurally incomplete, and therefore that Homo sapiens cannot avoid the dialectic of semblance and truth, does this necessarily entail that the absence of meta-language always correspond to the absence of the sexual relationship? In this article I will show how, in his Seminars of the late 1960s and early (...)

  20. The Kingdom and the Glory: For a Theological Genealogy of Economy and Government.Giorgio Agamben, Lorenzo Chiesa & Matteo Mandarini (eds.) - 2011 - Stanford University Press.
    Why has power in the West assumed the form of an "economy," that is, of a government of men and things? If power is essentially government, why does it need glory, that is, the ceremonial and liturgical apparatus that has always accompanied it? In the early centuries of the Church, in order to reconcile monotheism with God's threefold nature, the doctrine of Trinity was introduced in the guise of an economy of divine life. It was as if the Trinity amounted (...)

    The World of Desire: Lacan Between Evolutionary Biology and Psychoanalytic Theory.Lorenzo Chiesa - 2009 - Filozofski Vestnik 30 (2).
    The primary aim of this paper is to analyse the biological foundations of Lacan's notion of desire as expounded in his first two Seminars . These works provide us with his most detailed discussion of the species-specific preconditions that allow homo sapiens to speak and establish symbolic pacts among individuals. Despite its irreducibility to the domain of animal instincts, human desire can only be adequately understood against the background of an evolutionary enquiry on the emergence of language, one that problematises (...)
