      Inimkond: Current Issues in Anthropology and Beyond Tallinn University April 24th, 2013 Toward a New Universalism: Radical Thinking, Equality, Community Daniele Monticelli Tallinn University, Estonia Abstract The attempt to isolate species-specific properties of the human being has had a central role in Western philosophical thought, political theory and practice. From the Aristotelian “speaking/political animal” to Marxian “producing beings”, philosophers’ universal definitions of humanity have often been at the basis of our understanding of society and community, becoming the grounding ideals of political movements and institutions. In the second half of the 20th century, this universalistic stance has been thoroughly criticized from both a philosophical and political point of view. Anthropology, poststructuralist and postcolonialist approaches, cultural studies have all been at pain to disclose the actually always partial, interested, excluding and, therefore, imperialistic and violent character of universal definitions of the human being. The process of decolonization of the 40s-60s and the raising of identity politics in Western societies of the 70s seemed to release “all the difference in the world”, emancipating previously repressed ways of living and making community. Nowadays, this kind of theoretical approaches and political attitudes have run into serious trouble. The alternative and liberating differences of postmodern politics (oppressed people, women, blacks, homosexuals, and so on) are being everywhere replaced by the reappearance of essentialist and excluding identities (ethnic, national, religious). Contemporary identity politics canalizes the fear and uncertainty which characterize our societies into communitarian self-enclosure and hostility against everything that seems to somehow endanger it. On the background of the shortcomings of contemporary identity politics, the seminar will explore the possibility for a renewed philosophico-political commitment with universalism today. We will discuss the ideas of radical thinkers such as Alain Badiou, Giorgio Agamben, Jacques Rancière, Jean-Luc Nancy who share a critical attitude towards both poststructuralism and Marxism and try to elaborate a new understanding of politics and community which recuperates the universalist tradition rethinking it in an antiessentialist way. What would a universal look like if we imagine it as an infinite, open process instead of as the grounding essence of humanity? How to avoid the reduction of the universal to concrete, particular contents, which would become a criterion of socio-political inclusion/exclusion? Can a human community possibly embody an empty universal in a never-ending process of becoming? What does this all tell us about the present (and the future) of humanity? We will discuss these questions focusing on a central issue for the Western universalist discourse: the notion of ‘equality’. Suggested readings Giorgio Agamben, The Coming Community. Minneapolis, London: University of Minnesota Press, 1998. Alain Badiou, Saint Paul. The Foundation of Universalism.
