Saul Newman - The Politics of Postanarchism

Saul Newman contends that anarchism's anti-authoritarian egalitarianism informs the ethical and political terrain of contemporary radical struggles, particularly the global movement of anticapitalism. Yet he also argues that anarchism relies on an outdated epistemology and calls for a new direction in anti-authoritarian and emancipatory politics. Newman frames a revitalized approach to politics he calls postanarchism. Drawing on classical anarchist, poststructuralist, post-Marxist, critical, and psychoanalytic approaches, this innovative method newly engages with radical politics and its relation to subjectivity, identity, globalization, equality, and the state.
