This mix felt somewhat unbalanced. Now, with CommonwealthMichael Hardt and Antonio Negri conclude the trilogy begun with Empire and continued in Multitudeproposing an ethics of freedom for living in our common world and articulating a possible constitution for our common wealth.

But once I got into it, this book is fabulous. That’s a good thing. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. As such they state that “We instead define the concept of singularity, contrasting it to the figure of the individual on the one hand and forms of identity on the other, by focusing on three aspects of its relationship to multiplicity: Or perhaps there are no answers to what is becoming of this world, where nation, state, class have become so diffuse that they seem empty categories.

Popmatters is wholly independently owned and operated. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The institutions of family, corporation, and nation what they call corrupt versions of love all go, too. There is some good stuff in here, but I think you can better arrive at these understandings by actually organizing, and that experience will make a lot of what is written here, and how it is written, suspect. Singularity refers externally to a multiplicity of others; is internally divided or multiple; and constitutes a multiplicity over time – that is, a process of becoming.

Drawing on scenarios from around the globe and elucidating the themes that unite them, Hardt and Negri focus on the logic of institutions and antonip models of governance adequate to our understanding of a global commonwealth.


Ashley rated it liked it Oct 26, It completes a trilogy which includes Empire and Multitude: Multitude benefited from greater precision and a more direct style, though the concept of the multitude, derived from 17th-century Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza, is better developed negrii other Autonomist writers, in particular Paolo Virno whose brief text A Grammar of the Multitude is a good introduction to the post-Marxist understanding of the subject as a mechanism of political mobilization.

E ritiene questo un diritto, la fruizione di un bene comune. The freedom that forms the base hwrdt resistance, as we explained earlier, comes to the fore and constitutes an event to announce a new political project. Second, with no signs negrii the field’s fervor for Foucault abating, many scholars will find Hardt and Negri’s clarification of the biopolitical and its relationship to biopower very useful as it points out directions for invigorating a theory of power in rhetorical studies.

Habermas and Deleuze are mysteries to me. But there are things of value in Commonwealth.

I can only feel that they did not grown up anywhere half as violent as I did, though perhaps I am michsel understanding them correctly. Without cookies your experience may not be seamless.

Jan 16, Eric rated it liked it. Hardt and Negri mean by this not merely the natural resources that capital seeks to appropriate, but also “the languages we create, the social practices we establish, the modes of sociality that define our relationships”, which are both the means and the result of biopolitical production.

May 25, Kelley rated it liked it Shelves: An exchange on Commonweatlh in Artforum. And so I suppose it’s not surprising that while they seem to make the not-entirely-logical leap of grouping all flexible informal work together, when they discuss its revolutionary potential they are really just talking about the privileged tiers. Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk is a near-perfect success both as a grand statement of solidarity and as a gorgeously wrought, long-overdue story of black life and black love.


Commonwealth is the latest collaboration between Michael Hardt, a Duke University professor who specializes in Italian literature, and Negrk Negri, an original member of the radical Autonomia group in Italy. In particular the chapter concerning the role of the metropolis in modern times and the power of encounters is vital reading Some of what they say should be taken with a pinch of salt, as the authors have a pretty specific ideological background, and I can nod in agreement with most of the usual criticisms thrown at Hardt and Negri I would still argue for separation of ‘art and artist’ This year’s collection includes many independent and self-published artists; no mainstream or superhero comic in sight.


In this culmination of the trilogy that began with Empire and continued with MultitudeHardt and Negri map a space neither private nor public, a realm outside the clutches of global capital.

Negri fled to France and lived in exile before returning to Italy in to serve out the remainder of a reduced prison sentence on a lesser charge. Focus on social relationships and personal interest as focus of new economy, which would be valueless. Separate ‘outsider’ groups are the focus on social reform. Of course, commmonwealth still fail to advance the feminist elements of autonomism and remain rather abstract about everything.

Jul 16, Patric Esh rated it really liked it Shelves: Inherent distrust for organization and hierarchy. Empire was a very scathing review of modern globalization, providing a theoretical basis for multinational entities, abusing and manipulating the awareness of an underclass, etc.

Hardcoverpages. The Best World Music of Aug 31, Ben rated it it was amazing. If in Empire the authors intuited the possibilities for a new field of action, then Commonwealth asserts the objective development of that field. It just shows their assumption of where the revolution is coming from, whatever they say. I’m not the most-informed person to review this – I’ve only read Empire some years ago and had mixed feelings on itbut I was able to figure out what ‘the multitude’ was easily enough.

Not to be confused with novels of the same title, see Commonwealth disambiguation. First, despite a preference for French Theory and Negri’s own European identitythe book reads surprisingly well in the vein of American radicalism, a genealogy that is perhaps more familiar and friendly to scholars of public address.
