Modernity

An Introduction to the Monarchia. With an Essay by Judith Revel
ed. by Christiane Frey, Manuele Gragnolati, Christoph F. E. Holzhey, Arnd Wedemeyer
Cultural Inquiry, 16
Berlin: ICI Berlin Press, 2020

Open Access

Claude Lefort, one of the most prominent political philosophers of the twentieth century, reads Dante’s Monarchia, showing the surprising relevance of this radical fourteenth-century treatise that defends the necessity of universal monarchy and its independence from the Church for modern political theory.

 
Petrolio 25 anni dopo

Petrolio 25 anni dopo

ed. by Carla Benedetti, Manuele Gragnolati, and Davide Luglio
Macerata: Quodlibet, 2020

Released only 17 years after the author’s assassination, Pasolini’s Petrolio faced bitter controversies, which did not help its understanding. Exploring the entanglements of political and economic power of those years, the novel’s aesthetics has inspired biopolitical reflections and contemporary queer aesthetics.
