Abstract

abstract:

Politics counts on secrets and prediction: it depends on a visio imaginativa whereby doxa unravels itself into beliefs and holds fast onto the illusion of secrets that in reality do not exist, and fabricates the objects of its parlêtre by casting illusions of Time in order to formulate predictions and "ways forward." The sorry state of democracy partly arises from the illusion that free citizens are made to believe in politics as a discourse of predictions and secrets.
