Negacja i różnica - myśl Bakunina a współczesna włoska filozofia polityczna
Negation and difference. Bakunin and Italian theory
The ideas of Bakunin are usually dismissed as eclectic, unoriginal, and superficial. Post-anarchist philosophers, inspired by post-structuralism tend to neglect Bakunin’s legacy and look to other anarchist classical thinkers, Max Stirner mostly. Those of contemporary anarchist writers who return to Bakunin to oppose post-anarchism, present „liberal” and „marxist” interpretations of his thought, both unconvincing. The aim of this paper is to show that Bakunin’s philosophy has much more to offer, when given re-reading informed by the so-called Italian theory, and analysed in terms of combining dialectical (post-Hegelian) thinking of power and materialist, pluralist view of multiple points of resistance. Bakunin’s thought is presented in the context of the political theology and class-oriented theory of exploitation.
