Críticas:

"Eric Santner's The Royal Remains stands out, not only as the most important book on political philosophy of the last decade, but as a classic at the level of Walter Benjamin's 'Critique of Violence' or Ernst Kantorowicz's The King's Two Bodies. It prolongs their analyses into today's world of micro-politics, raising the key question of what happens to the king's other sublime body in a democratic society where the people-collectively-are the new sovereign. My reaction to reading this book is of wonder and awe; it is as if a new Benjamin (with the added features of Freud and Lacan) is walking among us." -Slavoj Zizek"

Reseña del editor:

'The king is dead. Long live the king'! In early modern Europe, the king's body was literally sovereign - and the right to rule was immediately transferrable to the next monarch in line upon the king's death. In "The Royal Remains", Eric L. Santner argues that this carnal dimension of sovereignty hasn't disappeared from politics. Instead, it has migrated to a new location - the life of the people - where something royal continues to linger in the way we obsessively track and measure the vicissitudes of our flesh. Santner demonstrates the ways in which democratic societies have continued many of the rituals and practices associated with kingship in displaced, distorted, and, usually, unrecognizable forms. He proposes that those strange mental activities Freud first lumped under the category of the unconscious - which often manifest themselves in peculiar physical ways - are really the uncanny second life of these royal remains, now animated in the body politic of modern neurotic subjects. Pairing Freud with Kafka, Carl Schmitt with Hugo von Hofmannsthal, and Ernst Kantorowicz with Rainer Maria Rilke, Santner generates brilliant readings of multiple texts and traditions of thought en route to reconsidering the sovereign imaginary. Ultimately, "The Royal Remains" locates much of modernity-from biopolitical controversies to modernist literary experiments - in this transition from subjecthood to secular citizenship. This major new work will make a bold and original contribution to discussions of politics, psychoanalysis, and modern art and literature.

Descripción University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London, 2011. Softcover. Condición: New. 288 pages. Softcover. New book. POLITICS. "The king is dead. Long live the king!" In early modern Europe, the king's body was literally sovereignÑand the right to rule was immediately transferrable to the next monarch in line upon the king's death. In The Royal Remains, Eric L. Santner argues that the "carnal" dimension of the structures and dynamics of sovereignty hasn't disappeared from politics. Instead, it migrated to a new locationÑthe life of the peopleÑwhere something royal continues to linger in the way we obsessively track and measure the vicissitudes of our flesh. Santner demonstrates the ways in which democratic societies have continued many of the rituals and practices associated with kingship in displaced, distorted, and usually, unrecognizable forms. He proposes that those strange mental activities Freud first lumped under the category of the unconsciousÑwhich often manifest themselves in peculiar physical waysÑare really the uncanny second life of these "royal remains," now animated in the body politic of modern neurotic subjects. Pairing Freud with Kafka, Carl Schmitt with Hugo von Hofmannsthal, and Ernst Kantorowicz with Rainer Maria Rilke, Santner generates brilliant readings of multiple texts and traditions of thought en route to reconsidering the sovereign imaginary. Ultimately, The Royal Remains locates much of modernityÑfrom biopolitical controversies to modernist literary experimentsÑin this transition from subjecthood to secular citizenship. This major new work will make a bold and original contribution to discussions of politics, psychoanalysis, and modern art and literature. "Eric Santner's The Royal Remains stands out, not only as the most important book on political theology of the last decade, but as a classic at the level of Walter Benjamin's Critique of Violence or Ernst Kantorowicz's The King's Two Bodies. It prolongs their analyses into today's world of micro-politics, raising the key question of what happens to the king's other sublime body in a democratic society where the people collectively are the new sovereign. My reaction to reading this book is of wonder and awe; it is as if a new Benjamin (with the added features of Freud and Lacan) is walking among us. - Slavoj Zizek "This is a major book by one of the most original and skilled critic-thinkers of our time. The Royal Remains, the newest installment in Eric L. Santner's intellectual saga charts the transition from personal to popular sovereignty, which is also the movement from the subject to the citizen. Santner is a master of the creative conjunction and here he generates dazzling readings that illuminate multiple texts and traditions of thinking. These same readings also lead directly and without apology to genuine insights into the ways we live, and fail to live, now and ho. book. Nº de ref. del artículo: 72814X1
