Who's Mehdi Belhaj Kacem?

Title of the essay: I love Mehdi Belhaj Kacem


[By reading the following abstract—which I have tried to write but so much imperfectly in English, I apologize—may be that some visitors who do not read French will know a bit more on the creative process which emerges out all along from the Mehdi Belhaj Kacem’s works. A. G-C.]

Strictly speaking, I love Mehdi Belhaj Kacem does not consist of a review on L’esprit du nihilisme : une Ontologique de l’Histoire, the last book from Mehdi Belhaj Kacem. It consists of a study on the following subject : the creating process of conceptualizing the new as an overpassing practice to the act which we called ’Transgression"--currently in French: a part of the Evil from the overnormal practices or from the deviant practices but which are not Malpractice—from the Mehdi Belhaj Kacem’s thinking. That is both a social individualized "Transgression" regarding the fields of the knowledge but in the same time a contributing activity of the "general transgression" concerning the insurrectionary society moving the laws, or else the crossing of the genre of writings such as Poetry, Novel, Essay turning into the Philosophy. From individualizing the writing by integrating the experimental body of the author till getting rid of the individualization thanks to the abstracting process by exceeding the affect to make happen the thought (what does not deprive it of the emotion from the writing to the reading). This thought being the "cursed part" of the economy of writing, an energy of the body (all the sources like included information) converted by the intellect into energetic and dynamic concepts, a gift from the individual to make happening in the common sense of the silent community. On one hand it throws back the notion of universality of the truth, for a cognitive consensus of the thought such expressed, not the truth but an event demonstrating what it discovers of common with the others by this own means ; on the other hand it is not any more the organic intellectual, it is the insurrectionary intellectual in the unacceptable community.

Process from an open masterwork—since his first book Cancer (published by Tristram in 1994) untill the last one--just out: L’esprit du nihilisme : une ontologique de l’Histoire (published by Fayard the last month). I think that his target can be the proper revolution as moving the subject. The appropriate subject of the great work of philosophy from Mehdi practice to the act, being at the same time the performance of an irreproachable philosophic speech and a "Transgression" consisting of the reversal of the ethics : "(...) It is not the Law which is the condition of the "Transgression", but the opposite. The "Trangression" is the condition of possibility of any legislation : not only "moral", political and civic, but furthermore technical and cultural." Furthermore he says, may be, "if the tragedy has been able to take sense in the modernity of the human without god(s), so the meaning can be that the proper body of the modern theater of this History, after the Myth, is not the religion but the politics itself as the appropriate faith"?

Anyway, in his abtract summarizing his last book, he certainly says, "(...) in it the withdrawal of which, for thirty years, is the true name of the "nihilism" and the " return of the Religious " : the politics." See better by yourself...
