Sample text

With a fundamentally Greek gesture, this proper finds its sense by reducing the amount of time in the Place of the City according to a topic presenting the con-gruency of the heteronomous figures of need, the com-parison of the singular terms of exchange as pure possibility of the One-same's difference from itself. The figure of chrematistics is henceforth prescribed, inscribed, within the alteration of the order of cobelonging, through the wild "temporalization" of the eventless reversibility of political space — a position of insubordination allowing the "scientific" modernity of its production, of its 10,1 dangerous infinity, to be foreseen.

Already the cosmological closure presents itself as meta-physical. Now look at Aristotle's final answer to our problem, namely: is time but a construction of the "soul's intellect" (psukhes nous), a "noumenon" or form of what can only happen en tei psukhef? Whether if soul did not exist time -would exist or not, is a question /aporesein/ that may fairly be asked; for if there cannot be someone to count /arithmesontos/ there cannot be anything that can be counted /arithmeton/ either, so that evidently there cannot be number; for number is either what has been counted /erithmemenon/, or what can be counted /arithmeton/.

This break, this opening, already falls as an effect whose apparatus can be readily summarized. As opposed to domestic economy, which, as a practical knowledge tied to a praxis limited to the time of the act, has its own end in itself, chrematistics appears as a poietic or productive science, turned toward the production of a work external to the agent, with no inferiority at all. 9 His very definition is at stake. Now, the quest for a definition of chrematistics undertaken in the Politics does not succeed: remaining shapeless, chrematistics will occupy no rank within the hierarchical order of knowledges and acts.
