“[…] and I did not open my mouth anymore”

By | November 3rd, 2018|LRO 101|

In Europe today, the question of politics as faced with human phenomena is effaced in favour of a discourse of necessity. The decision makers think that they are managers. The logic of numbers buries the political question. This cold discourse creates a climate of exclusion and widespread disquiet in a silent world faced with the [...]

Time Does Not Stop

By | October 28th, 2018|LRO 100|

“Time does not stop” is the title of a famous song by the Argentine rock band Bersuit Vergarabat.[1] This could be the title of a television series, since the phenomenon of temporal distortion is one of television’s essential characteristics. This feature is quite frequent in recent series. However, the limitlessness of the contemporary experience of [...]

Liquid Times Are Over. Solid Monsters Are Back

When I proposed that the book written with Professor Bauman be entitled "The Return of the Pendulum" it was because those words, suggested in his mail of 08/23/2012, strongly caught my attention. Wise is he who can read between the lines of the social discourse not only what is happening in the present but also [...]

The Green Tide

By | October 15th, 2018|LRO 97|

For years groups of women have been demonstrating in Argentina. Women who, through different manifestations, make a claim for equal gender rights, protection, security, expansion of social benefits, etc. From the parliamentary debate on the decriminalization of abortion, this movement has grown exponentially, taking to the streets of the country’s main cities, identifying itself with [...]

The gadget-Eros

By | October 3rd, 2018|LRO 94|

The gadget-Eros [1] “Only love allows jouissance to condescend to desire.”[2] However, in a universe of sexual consumption, where the sex market is particularly extended and can be accessed in a variety of ways, the love partner is assigned a new status. Along with the spread of the ready-made fantasy, the subject’s relation to jouissance [...]

The tea of the master and the tea of desire. A short story in the light of Lacan’s Seminar XVII

By | September 15th, 2018|LRO 89|

Amantine is the heroine of the exceptional short story À Clairmont by Maryse Battistuzzi.[1] She is an old lady with a particular whim that makes other people wonder: when taking her tea she invariably leaves a small quantity in the bottom of her cup. To Amantine, to consume those last sips would doubtless amount “to [...]

Right To Your Left And Left To Your Right – The Need For A New Shaking

By | August 31st, 2018|LRO 85|

There is a surprising paradox in the political life of post-communist societies. Surprising to traditional political values. The totalitarian communist parties in our countries have become socialist by name and conservative by stand. In the revolutionary process of transformation from a one-party state to a multi-party system, from a state-owned economy to a market economy, [...]

The Voice of Stephen Hawking and the Tiger

By | September 24th, 2016|LRO 47|

The Vocoder produces an un-modulated form of speech that sounds robotic, partly because of the monotony assumed for the machine, but also because of the use of similar devices in sound art and popular music particularly of the 1970s and 80s like Laurie Anderson, Kraftwerk and Afro-futurists who used the Vocoder to evoke the ‘alien’ [...]
