About this product
- DescriptionAntonio Negri, one of the world's leading scholars on Baruch Spiza (1632-1677) and his contemporary legacy, offers a straightforward explanation of the philosopher's elaborate arguments and a persuasive case for his ongoing relevance. Responding to a resurgent interest in Spiza's thought and its potential application to contemporary global issues, Negri demonstrates the thinker's special value to politics, philosophy, and related disciplines. Negri's work is both a return to and an advancement of his initial affirmation of Spizian thought in The Savage Amaly. He further defends his understanding of the philosopher as a proto-postmodernist, or a thinker who is just w, with the advent of the postmodern, becoming contemporary. Negri also connects Spiza's theories to recent trends in political philosophy, particularly the reengagement with Carl Schmitt's political theology, and the history of philosophy, including the argument that Spiza belongs to a radical enlightenment. By positioning Spiza as a contemporary revolutionary intellectual, Negri addresses and effectively defeats twentieth-century critiques of the thinker waged by Jacques Derrida, Alain Badiou, and Giorgio Agamben.
