Book Reading |
Serge and Beate Klarsfeld met as young students at Sciences Po – she the daughter of a German Wehrmacht soldier, and he the son of a Romanian Jew who died in Auschwitz. They have devoted their lives to hunting down Nazis and bringing them to justice, and to restoring and maintaining the memory of victims of the Shoah. As private citizens, they wield neither political nor police power, depending instead on dramatic acts of moral symbolism to get results. The first and purest example was Beate's public slapping of West German Chancellor Kurt Georg Kiesinger in 1968. That slap was a reproach to the presumption that a man who had been an ambitious Nazi propagandist should lead a new, democratic Germany. Kiesinger lost the 1969 general election to Willy Brandt, who had been an opponent of and a refugee from Nazism.  In their autobiography, they reflect on their shared lives and on 45 years of activism on behalf of victims of the Holocaust. Their Memoirs will be published in English translation this year by Farrar Straus and Giroux.

Lecture |
The idea that emotions matter in politics is a common place. Nonetheless, it could be immediately objected that despite the prevalence of emotions, we should not discard the fact that politics is above all, if not "essentially", a matter of ideas, values, principles or rational argumentation. The concept of "affect" in Spinoza's philosophy overcomes this tedious antinomy insofar as it gives the most general characterization of the effect produced by one thing on another. If affects are the real engine of politics, they can nowhere be better seen than in crisis times. Institutions are supported by affects, and they prevail and impose their norms only as long as they succeed in properly affecting people. Conversely, they are in danger whenever the formation of a common opposite affect causes people to break with the institution rules. Political crises, uprisings and what we will generally call, following Spinoza, "seditions", appear then as a bifurcation in the dynamics of the collective affects.Speaker Frédéric Lordon is an economist and Director of Research at the CNRS, Paris. He is the author of many works including Willing Slaves of Capital: Marx and Spinoza on Desire, published by Verso Books in 2014.
