Political critique: a genealogy

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Critique; Crisis; Judgment; Political Power.

The essay aims to demonstrate that today the so called «crisis of critique» concerns in particular the «political critique», that, according to Reinhart Koselleck, assumes its modern definition - the judgment pro or contra the current political power - during the Enlightenment. It is the external position of the critique in respect to the political power to define the concept of political critique. A genealogy which starts from the use of the form of judgment of "krisis" in the Ancient Greece could suggest that, in our neoliberal age, the critique accomplishes its political function from within the current form of power, therefore in a very different sense in comparison with its modern concept.
