dc.description.abstractThis seminar engages with an outside to representation via Maurice Blanchot's notion of le neutre; "this non-power that would not be a simple negation of power" - but the suspension of the dialectical economy. Further, one might suggest that disagreement would only be possible on the premise of agreement. More radical that disagreement would be the neutrality of the il y a of a passivity that would invoke a radical indifference to agreement itself, that agreement and its binary opposite would not take place. The paper engages with the primordial interruption implied in Blanchot's radical notion of contestation, as a 'politics' of le neutre - a radical gesture that is vital to his approach to language and literature, ethics and politics.
