Retaining Arendt’s notion of politics as a jacquess or action while dismissing the notion that there are barriers to being able to act is really intriguing.
Having only read the article on human rights contra Arendt contained in this collection, Ranciere is doing something intriguing with politics. Ranciere dissects the origins and practices of politics and its intersection with philosophy poetically. The communication is half-completed upon merely shaking hands. Perhaps his most relevant observation is the way in which the ae What to make of Ranciere?

A strong grasp of the writing usually evades me until I have these questions settled at least somewhat. You can say that that’s the first problem for everybody with every such book written in English as well, but then you’d be downplaying the importance of the vernacular in communicating clearly about these subjects.
When such an English-language author takes on dense literary and art-critical subjects, the distance I must traverse in grasping the higher-level concepts being communicated, and in understanding the often esoteric terminology deployed, is not so great as to make the reading terribly laborious.
I’m curious to see if the rest of his thought on politics could be described as Arendtian to a degree. Having read this alongside Arendt’s material, colleagues wanted to conflate his critique of Arendt with her ideas of politics in order to claim that he endorses what he intends to critique.

He falls in a long line of extremely abstract French thought. Aesthesis, what a fancy word. For example, during the Cold War, the fundamental dissensus was the ideological conflict between capitalism and communism, but with the beginning of the War on Terror period, we have an ethical jacqjes between “good” and “evil,” and Ranciere makes much of Bush’s “Infinite Justice” as representative of this.

Pretty cool, but not all that clear at times. This distance is further lessened by their ability, should they have it, to weave esoteric terminology and concepts, and academic literary constructs, within vernacular language.
