O artigo propõe uma agenda de análise rítmica para estudar as criatividades do protesto. A discussão sobre a análise rítmica é ancorada na ontologia dos selves de autoria de Cornelius Castoriadis. Abarcaremos psique e sociedade no mesmo pensamento e mudaremos os termos do debate das subjetividades coletivas para a emergência rítmica dos divíduos. O artigo introduz a noção de ritmos concêntricos como um quadro analítico para tornar inteligíveis as polirritmias dos locais de protesto. Finalmente, o artigo constrói uma vinheta sobre ritmos concêntricos, onde, analisando uma coreografia particular do protesto, nos habilitamos a falar sobre autonomia, reconhecimento e política pós edípica.

The article proposes a rhythm-analytic agenda for studying the creativities of protest. The discussion on rhythm-analysis is anchored in the ontology of selves authored by Cornelius Castoriadis. We think psyche and society in the same thought, and we shift the terms of debate from collective subjectivities to the rhythmic emergence of dividuals. The article introduces the notion of nested rhythms as an analytical frame for making sense of the polyrhythmias of sites of protest. Finally...
Gianni Vattimo's "nihilistic ontology" is immediately distinguished by its resolute anti-metaphysics. Thus, instead of what Vattimo construes as the definitive tropes of metaphysics, i.e., temporal permanence, necessity, foundationalism, etc., the possibility of nihilistic ontology must maintain a critical exigency regarding these tropes. According to this imperative, Vattimo seeks to equate nihilistic ontology with a hermeneutic ontology. This text examines this equation, attempting to separate the continuity between nihilism and hermeneutics, according to the latter's commitment to a variation of anthropocentrism evinced in concepts such as the effectivity of the particular content of a history, which in turn belies a nihilism that has posited history and man as contingent. Rather, what is at stake in a nihilistic ontology, consistent with Vattimo's reading, is a radically minimal ontology dedicated to the contingency of Being itself, thus excising the privileged ontological status of man that characterizes the hermeneutic ontology, a privileging analogous to the very metaphysical foundationalism that nihilism is to obviate.

Can an African ubuntu moral theory ground individual freedom and human rights? Although variants of ubuntu moral theory answer in the negative, asserting that the duties individuals owe the collective are prior to individual rights (since African thought places more emphasis on the collective), Metz's recent articulation in this Journal of an African ubuntu moral theory promises to ground the liberal ideal of individual liberty. I pursue three distinct lines of argument in establishing the claim that Metz's project fails to convince - that individual freedom and rights cannot be successfully grounded in a moral theory that already regards some extrinsic value (that is, communal harmony) as the most fundamental moral value. First, I suggest that Metz's attempt to ground human rights in his ubuntu moral theory raises the problem of where the fundamental value lies in his theory. That is, in seeking to integrate two potentially-conflicting and non-instrumental values in his theory, Metz substantially modifies his original ubuntu ethical principle in such a way that the communitarian/ubuntu status of the theory is undermined. Second, I argue that, even if Metz's theory were sufficiently communitarian/ubuntu-like, it could not possibly ground individual freedom as a non-instrumental value. Third...

O fio do mínimo ou “Zapatos: andante con variaciones” de Margo GlantzThis work construes Margo Glantz’ “Zapatos: andante con variaciones” as a text that from the fiction point of view reworks, at the same time displacing and distorting, some nucleic ideas taken from Las genealogías. Our starting hypothesis is that this text (central in the series of texts in Historia de una mujer que caminó por la vida con zapatos de diseñador) does not fictionalise an “original” but a textual original; because of this we think its protagonist (Nora García) as an “imperfect translation” of this Margo Glantz who presents herself as the narrator and character of the parental memories.We question how you construct an autobiography when you already had been a character in your parent’s biography; with this is mind we read the change of status that some events experience from one text to the other; the transformation of the insignificant into central and the central into insignificant. We focused our attention on Nora García/Margo Glantz relation with the universe of shoes. This relation seen as a familial memory mark, personal passion, a garment that defines the subject; and above all as that object which obliquely lets the author to recover in the fictional space the maternal memory (obscured in the Las genealogías by the figure of Jacobo Glantz...
