"This collection shows us Jacques Ranciere at his best. The chronicle is ideally suited for his style of thinking. Ranciere philosophizes with a fine razor blade to take apart all the presuppositions behind our present-day consensus yet the effect is as fatal and irreversible as if he had used a sledge hammer." - Bruno Bosteels, Cornell University, USA

Uneven but Intended to Be So 7. April 2013
Von The Peripatetic Reader - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Jacques Ranciere is perhaps one of the most incisive political thinkers living today and his thoughts on the timely topic of consensus matters because our President in 2013 is an avowed believer in consensus making and the American form of government is based on the achieving of consensus. On reading the title the expectation would be that this book contains his thoughts on political consensus, which is definitely true because many of the essays deals with the dangers, shortcomings, pitfalls and destructive traits of political consensus. Ranciere notes that some of the worst characteristics of this political age -- ethnic cleansings, "humanitarian" wars, wars on terrorism, new forms of racism -- are characteristic of this "Age of Consensus" and destroys politics and the political process.

The war on terrorism has a particularly destructive influence on Politics. Not only was it a collective response of consensus, but it is viewed as an exaggerated form of ethics infused into politics, to the point of ethical retribution and the quest for Infinite Justice, destroying the boundaries of law and politics. It is typical of the corrosive effect of consensus. This is the effect of consensus because so often when a politician wants to achieve a political result through "consensus," this is really a code-word for leaving no other room for discussion, or, to use the words of Margaret Thatcher, "no other alternative."

This in a nutshell is what Ranciere has to say about political consensus. The other reviews indicate that the title of this book is a bit of a misnomer, which is only partly true. Yes the book has the word "consensus" in its title, and yes it consists of essays which have little if anything to do with political consensus and are, for all intents and purposes, movie reviews. The reader will wonder, as this other review has, what these movie reviews have to do with political consensus.

The answer is that Chronicles of Consensual Times consists of articles that Ranciere wrote to a large Brazilian Newspaper, Folha de Sao Paulo, from 1996 to 2005. This book should be approached with this fact in mind in order for the insights to be fully appreciated.

This book is fascinating. I have been used to Rancière' long essays, so reading his short articles brings me a feeling of refreshment and, wonderment. It is easier to share these short articles with friends.

Insubstantial Analyses 29. November 2010
Von Steiner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Ranciere's most recent collection of talks and essays is a theoretical glimpse into the question of consensus as it functions as a method of political concealment. The present collection contains papers on a wide variety of topics, from the politics of humanitarian intervention to contemporary French electoral politics. There are additionally discussions on such figures as Borges, Norman Finkelstein, Godard, and Baudrillard. The analysis here is often insubstantial and Ranciere is content to introduce a particular problematic or paradox and then resolve the problem without much development. These pieces read more like introductory thoughts developing within a larger project rather than a substantial contribution to theory. Still, there are plenty of thoughtful nuggets dispersed throughout.
