Discussion on ‘Los pocos y los mejores’

Discussion on ‘Los pocos y los mejores’

Conferences, Talks
On the 2 June, José Luis Moreno Pestaña, researcher and member of FiloLab, will take part in a discussion on his work ‘Los pocos y los mejores. Localización y crítica del fetichismo político’ (Akal, 2021) organised by the Permanent Seminar of Philosophy of the University Carlos III of Madrid (U3CM). José Luis Moreno Pestaña’s work, awarded with the ‘Premio Internacional de Pensamiento 2030’, addresses the problem of current democracy with a historical perspective, analysing the ‘political fetishism’ that permeates the most common conceptions of democratic institutions, election processes and forms of representation. Its aim is to criticise the normalisation of dynamics that accumulate political capital in the hands of a few, while proposing mechanisms to distribute that capital amongst the majority—mechanisms whose origins can be traced back to Classical Greece—.…

Is this division the classic fate of a long work? The aim of this conference is precisely to reopen this work within its…

Online Discussions: “Detonar la realidad a través del cuerpo del trabajador”

Activities, Media, Talks
  Reconstructing history allows us to realise that bodies have not always been valued in the same way; a capital that is linked to bodies (sexual capital) exists as a consequence of transformations in the field of health, of relationships between social classes as well as the general conception of the conditions required to be an accomplished person. These changes allow us to identify possibilities for transformation. Because even though everybody should be able to express themselves through their bodies, this is far from reality as there are certain requirements that have been set which verge on the pathological. An empirical study on qualified and working class workers provides us with a contemporary view of how sexual capital is linked to eating disorders. An analysis of existing conflicts allows us…
