Die Zukunft des Todes: Heterotopien des Lebensendes

Sterben und Tod sind alltägliche Vorkommnisse, die üblicherweise als außeralltäglich angesehen werden. Die Tendenz, eher von abstrakten Begriffen als von konkreten Lebensbeendigungen auszugehen, ist weit verbreitet. Eine gesamtgesellschaftliche Perspektive jedoch muss über die Ebene subjektiver Betroffenheit hinausgehen und den Tod als Herausforderung wie auch - in der sozialen Behandlung von Todesfällen - als Bestätigung normativer Konzepte betrachten.

Again, for instance, the possibility of such motivating judgement is one of Godwin’s main philosophical problems (Godwin, 1976: Part I). Third, the capacity and physical/social resources to resist domination and to avoid dependence. At minimum, one requires food and water, and a secure place to live, if one is not to be vulnerable to domination, but one might potentially need far more, depending on the extant threats and temptations. Part of the enduring fascination to anarchists of acephalous peoples like the Nuer, I suggest, is that they are not naïve about the possibility of domination: they have developed complex social tactics for pre-empting and resisting domination, from mockery to mediation to non-cooperation to migration (Clark, 2007: 109–38).

Marshall may be right about the usual use of terms here, but there is absolutely no reason in principle why a philosophical anarchist should not engage in practical activity (beyond the activity of thought itself). Again, any connection here (and there is such a connection in the history of anarchism, with obvious counterexamples like Proudhon) is wholly contingent. In any case, without wishing to make it sound as though I am simply making a lame selfjustificatory claim on behalf of intellectuals, an additional point needs to be made.

Such specifics are always matters of judgement and circumstance; they are not matters of principle. 4 Conclusion In this chapter, I have argued (1) that intellectual labour is necessary and desirable, (2) that three distinct historical understandings of philosophical anarchism should be distinguished, (3) that philosophical anarchism is best understood as the argumentative expression of the anarchist case, (4) that there are more and less adequate contemporary philosophical anarchisms in our sense and (5) that philosophical anarchism is defensible in a weak but engaged form.
