Đorđe Hristov, “The citizen, the bourgeois and the nomad: the three figures of braveness through the lens of Hegel and Deleuze”
11. June 13:00 - 15:00
The lecture will trace the different forms of the concept of courage, focusing for this purpose on three figures of political thought – the bourgeois, the citizen and the nomad – in order to accentuate its distinct political aspects. By examining this concept through the works of three authors, Hegel on the one hand, and Deleuze and Guattari, on the other, the lecture will map out understandings of courage ranging from republican antiquity, through the modern liberal ambivalences with this concept and up to its post-modern receptions.
Đorđe Hristov (born 1985) received his PhD from the Department of Political Theory and History of Ideas at the University of Regensburg in 2016 with the topic Politics and Immanence: State and History in Hegel and Deleuze. Main fields of interest include ancient political thought (primarily authors such as Polybius and Sallust, Plato and Aristotle), modern contract theories (Rousseau and Constant), German idealism (Kant and Hegel), political theory of the 20th century (Arendt and Schmitt) as well as French political thought of the 20th century (Deleuze and Guattari). Main interests lie in the problems of political violence and war, archaism in modernity, fascism and totalitarianism, as well as the phenomenon of mutual recognition and imitation in the context of the politicization of human relations. He has published papers in Serbian, English and German.
