    Democracy as a Tragic Regime: Democracy and its Cancellation.Nathalie Karagiannis - 2010 - Critical Horizons 11 (1):35-49.
    To see "democracy as a tragic regime", as Cornelius Castoriadis did, is to recognize the ever-present risk of democracy’s cancellation, but it also means to emphasize the anti-democratic nature of such cancellation, thus its incompatibility with democracy. In the context of this understanding of democracy, the article takes the political to consist of those relations among people and among institutions within the polis, which aim at deciding about the polis’ fate. It takes the social to be those relations among people (...)

    The Tragic and the Political: A Parallel Reading of Kostas Papaioannou and Cornelius Castoriadis.Nathalie Karagiannis - 2006 - Critical Horizons 7 (1):303-319.
    The fundamental difference between Castoriadis' and Papaioannou's accounts of the link between tragedy and the political is that Castoriadis insists on a political form whilst Papaioannou insists on a social actor. The starting point for this essay, then, are two thinkers: one whose main interest was a political and philosophical reflection on the social-historical and one whose main interest was a philosophical reflection on the arts. Surprisingly, however, the end situation is one where Castoriadis gives us a political explanation of (...)

  5. What is to Be Thought? What is to Be Done?: The Polyscopic Thought of Kostas Axelos and Cornelius Castoriadis.Peter Wagner & Nathalie Karagiannis - 2012 - European Journal of Social Theory 15 (3):403-417.
    Kostas Axelos and Cornelius Castoriadis are among the most inspiring thinkers of the second half of the 20th century. They each combine comprehensive philosophy with social and political theory, and a broad view on human history with a critical diagnosis of the present, with nuanced observations on our current condition—characteristics, rare during this period, that this article describes as polyscopic thought. Castoriadis is widely known as the philosopher of ‘autonomy’, of the human capacity to give oneself one’s own law; his (...)

    Imagination and Tragic Democracy.Nathalie Karagiannis & Peter Wagner - 2012 - Critical Horizons 13 (1):12 - 28.
    Cornelius Castoriadis is one of the very few social and political philosophers – modern and ancient – for whom a concept of imagination is truly central. In his work, however, the role of imagination is so overarching that it becomes difficult to grasp its workings and consequences in detail, in particular in its relation to democracy as the political form in which autonomy is the core imaginary signification. This article will proceed by first suggesting some clarifications about Castoriadis’s employment of (...)

    European Solidarity.Nathalie Karagiannis (ed.) - 2007 - Liverpool University Press.
    Many who evoke the term solidarity are influenced by an underlying sense of urgency and whether the use of the term plays upon an intellectual concept or harnesses solidarity’s more practical expressions, this political buzzword wields influence. _European Solidarity_ proposes a variety of sophisticated historical and theoretical conceptualizations of solidarity, while simultaneously exposing the practical implications of its contemporary expressions. An empirical investigation of solidarity’s crucial challenges in the EU today and a comprehensive consideration of the history of the term (...)
