Une exigence fondamentale de l. a. pensée contemporaine est d'en finir avec los angeles « philosophie politique ».

Qu'est-ce que los angeles philosophie politique ? Son opération centrale est de ramener l. a. politique à l'exercice du « libre jugement » et de los angeles « dialogue », dans un espace public où ne comptent en définitive que les opinions.

On sait que, bien avant d'être arendtien, ou kantien, le thème de l'opposition irréductible de los angeles vérité et de l'opinion est platonicien. Ce qui, en revanche, n'est pas platonicien est l'idée que l. a. politique serait ainsi éternellement vouée à l'opinion, éternellement disjointe de toute vérité.

Sauf pour qui pense que le commentaire de bistrot, ou los angeles dialog entre amis, constitue « l'essence même de los angeles vie politique », il est en effet clair que le conflit des evaluations n'est politique qu'autant qu'il se cristallise dans une décision. l. a. query d'une attainable vérité politique doit alors être examinée non du seul element de l. a. « dialogue », mais dans le processus complexe qui noue l. a. dialogue à los angeles décision.

Sample text

By embodying an identity-based political position, I mean an aggregate of the processes mentioned above, whereby an individual is identified as Embodying Identity-Based Political Positions 35 (attributed as/claims to be/is claimed as being) a member of a specific identity-based collective (or set of collectives), and can therefore assume (with, for, to, on behalf of, with regard to that collective) the relevant identity-based political position effectively. At least, that is the sense in which ‘embodying’ is understood for the purposes of this study.

Two, the political place of essentialism can also be gauged by examining the consequences of accepting biogenetic embeddedness in identitybased collectives for political purposes. From a political perspective, the most productive arguments have taken place in such a consequentialist vein – and, again, with inconclusive results. On the one hand, this has led to rejection of essentialist identity-based political positions because of the exclusions that are implicit in them. The exclusions of essentialist identity-based political positions have resulted in the violence and repression that dominant collectives have often exercised against minorities, opened up the possibility of minority identity-based political positions reflecting the characteristics of that which they seek to oppose, or released the possibility of a political ethos of unbridgeable fragmentations and petty fascisms.

A similar ‘jargon of authenticity’ is produced. Only the existentialist jargon tried to break all limits on critical engagement and communication, and the jargon of embodied (literally em-bodied) identity-based political positions instils and disseminates limits in all directions. All the more so because, as Jamilah Ahmed noted earlier, from the latter perspective none can speak, think, critically contemplate anything without being understood as doing so with their bodies: ‘the researcher must recognize the multiple subject positions that are evoked by the presence of their own body and the materiality of their fieldwork’19 (my emphasis).
