Situations intends to address the current malaise of the radical imagination in both left theory and in popular consciousness. We aim to explore the social conditions and lived experiences that lead to this malaise and to support explanations which do not reduce political phenomena to a reflection.
Situations will foster modes of thinking that recognize the creative role that society plays in its own production. In opposition to simple determinisms, Situations will attempt to show the contingencies and peculiarities of political phenomena. This website of Situations is one of our projects to open discussion towards building a new theory of politics that addresses the current condition of capitalist life. With this task in mind, we invite our guests to read our current or archived journals.
