    Paulitics.Dan Mellamphy & Nandita Biswas Mellamphy - 2008 - Symposium 12 (2):127-146.
    In this essay we offer an interpretation of Alain Badiou’s theorisation of Paul the Apostle as a “universal singularity.” Our aim is to explore the extent to which Badiou’s articulation of political subjectivity provides a radically different locus and topos for the “political”—one that is rooted not in a concept of the abstract individual but rather in the material and generative process of individuation. Following Badiou, we explore the implications of the ontological shiftthat Paul represents—the shift from an external “body (...)

    Affective Aporetics: Complementary Contradictions in the Interpretation of Friedrich Nietzsche.Nandita Biswas Mellamphy - 2011 - PhaenEx 6 (1):121-146.
    In 1971, Wolfgang Müller-Lauter introduced his study of Nietzsche as an investigation into the history of modern nihilism in which “contradiction” forms the central thread of the argument. For Müller-Lauter, the interpretive task is not to demonstrate the overall coherence or incoherence of Nietzsche’s philosophy, but to examine Nietzsche’s “philosophy of contradiction.” Against those such as Karl Jaspers, Karl Löwith and Martin Heidegger, Müller-Lauter argued that contradiction is the foundation of Nietzsche’s thought, and not a problem to be corrected or (...)

    In 'Descent' Proposal: Pathologies of Embodiment in Nietzsche, Kafka, and Foucault.Dan Mellamphy & Nandita Biswas Mellamphy - 2005 - Foucault Studies 3:27-48.
    This paper advances the argument that Foucault's notion of 'bodily inscription' can be found in more rudimentary form in the Nietzschean notion of 'bodily descent'- the path qua pathology of 'going under' first outlined by Nietzsche in Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The argument is set within context of the ongoing debate in Foucault studies about whether a non-discursive dimension of the body can be posited or whether the body is always already and inevitably discursive. Following Judith Butler's assessment that there is (...)
