Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author considers his own experiential knowledge of the new cycle's struggles as the starting point for an investigation of today's global fields of conflict and recounts a number of exemplary experiences gathered in contemporary struggles. He reflects on how these experiences can help us gain an understanding of wider conflicts, including the contemporary crisis. Self-organisation, self-entrepreneurship, self-engagement, self-rationalisation and self-optimisation are the strategic keystones of new approach. The confrontation between the strategies of subjectivation and social-revolutionary subjectivity, which plays out in all areas of society and affects the very foundations of scientificity, has not only dissolved the Cartesian framework hitherto proper to the self-conception of the bourgeois sciences; it is also forcing the left to move beyond the old dichotomies of 'theory' and 'practice'. Painful as it may be, the political economy of capital has long since moved far beyond Marxist orthodoxy and most left-wing concepts.

Keywords: Cartesian framework; Marxist orthodoxy; political economy of capital; social-revolutionary subjectivity
