Th is textual content specifi cally avoids this sort of globalized and transnational ideology that used to be defining politics and reportage on the time and which emphasised the firmness of imagined, ideological borders over the human similarities that may erase them. as an alternative, it addresses readers as inscribed in one other type of wisdom past borders than that which the order, hierarchy, and “factual” illustration of newspaper discourse presumed to speak. wisdom past Borders 163 by means of contrasting factuality as linguistic ideology with felt yet silent subjectivity, Lispector’s texts recommend a possible for epistemologically reconsidering the binary relationships among lifestyle and the ideology of the countryside; the participation or exclusion of matters in positions of energy; or the authority and shortage of authority that in the colonial, hierarchical, and modernizing constitution of dictatorship upholds the kingdom. As I defined in bankruptcy 1, the state contains a Western epistemology of energy into discourse mirrored via the political ideology of the nation. however the hole among aff ective group and political rhetoric Lispector indications additionally unearths the void on which the nation is outfitted as a constitution of illustration. As Giorgio Agamben has defined in his paintings at the country of exception, law—especially the suspensions of the legislation that happen while dictatorships dissolve democratic processes—is a fictional build of language whose cognitive contours coincide in political philosophy with these used to explain metaphysical techniques to being. And, within the approach, they enable for a violence opposed to the topic that's discursive in addition to fabric as the constitution of illustration is what upholds strength. In different phrases, either legislations and language are tied to an exterior “real” referent similar to what Lispector calls the unreproducible realidade em que vivemos that's silenced through buildings of strength simply because either legislation and language indicate a suspension of signification by which repressive energy is justified: natural violence because the severe political item, because the “thing” of politics, is the counterpart to natural being, to natural lifestyles because the final metaphysical stakes; the method of the exception, which needs to make sure the relation among anomic violence and legislations, is the counterpart to the onto-theo-logical approach geared toward taking pictures natural being within the meshes of the emblems. that's to claim, every thing occurs as though either legislations and emblems wanted an anomic (or alogical) region of suspension in an effort to flooring their connection with the area of existence. legislations turns out capable of subsist simply via shooting anomie, simply as language can subsist in basic terms via greedy the nonlinguistic. In either situations, the clash turns out to problem an empty area: at the one hand, anomie, juridical vacuum, and, at the different, natural being, with out any selection or actual predicate. [. . . ] Th e relation among norm and fact includes the suspension of the norm, simply as in ontology the relation among language and global comprises the suspension of denotation within the kind of a langue.
