(p.54) Concept
Thinking with Balibar

Étienne Balibar

Fordham University Press

Distinguishes between discussing the scientificity, the discursivity, the historicity, and the politicality of concepts. Focusing on the last of these, offers a way of moving to and past the limit of any epistemological discussion of concept production, and toward a way of understanding concepts not as instruments serving to isolate or separate from one another the faculties or elements of intellectual activity that could generate conflicts but, on the contrary, to bring them together into a single topos in order to problematize the uncertain effects of their encounter.

Keywords:   division of the sensible, Kant, Koselleck, Schmitt
