    Resistant Epistemologies From the Andes.Omar Rivera - 2020 - Journal of World Philosophies 5 (1):76-88.
    This paper adds to the epistemological contributions of Latin American philosophy. In particular, I propose a “resistant epistemology” informed by contemporary indigenous Andean philosophies and cosmologies. Focusing on the work of María Lugones, Rodolfo Kusch, and Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui, I explore ways in which communities are made and remade on the basis of knowledges from below, surviving political and ecological crises, including colonialism and modern development. These kinds of resistive knowledges draw from rituals, quotidian and cosmic rhythms, and affective withdrawals (...)

    Reading Alejandro Vallega Toward a Decolonial Aesthetics.Omar Rivera - 2017 - Comparative and Continental Philosophy 9 (2):162-173.
    This article is an interpretation of Alejandro Vallega’s “decolonial aesthetics,” focusing on his book Latin American Philosophy: From Identity to Radical Exteriority. This interpretation situates decolonial aesthetics in relation to figures in the history of Latin American Philosophy, and the work of Aníbal Quijano, Enrique Dussel, Linda Martín Alcoff, and Gloria Anzaldúa. It also explores the determination of decolonial aesthetics as an aesthetics of liberation.

    The Comedy of Patricide (Or: A Passing Sense of Manliness): Socrates' Overcoming of Andreia.Omar Rivera - 2007 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 11 (2):353-369.
    This paper is an investigation of the role of comedy in philosophical thinking, particularly of how comedy reveals the erotic dimension of philosophical thinking.In the first half of the paper, I show that the relation between comedy and Eros is a powerful means to understand in what way philosophy is not technē. Philosophy in its erotic and comedic character is, rather, engaged with an appearing of things as ‘birthed’ or ‘living.’ In the second part of the paper, I focus on (...)

    Political Ontology , Agamben, Dussel... Subcomandante Marcos.Omar Rivera - 2011 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 16 (1):125-138.
    This paper articulates a ‘political ontology’ by orienting Agamben’s inquiries toward the autonomy of the constituting power. In relation to Agamben’s thought, it clarifies it by drawing a categorical distinction between zōē and bare life, departs from it by using Agamben’s analysis of potentiality to understand the paralysis of the constituting power and develops it by unfolding the category of ‘exigency.’ The paper also sets into play a brief encounter between political ontology and representative politics.
