The livability of a political life. On the paradigmatic case of violent economization between moral economy and debt enslavement
Political experiences do not yield a clear-cut notion of the political; rather, they call for a hermeneutical articulation of their political dimension in spaces and orders of dissension which in turn require their revision in terms of contested notions of the political. Every definition of the political will be open to further revisions in political dissent, conflict and strife. In this perspective, a hermeneutic circularity between political experiences, interpretations of the political and political orders turns out as unavoidable. My paper refers to recent discussions on the relations between guilt, owing and debts in the context of violent forms of economization (dept enslavement) in order to demonstrate ways in which this circularity works and may prove to be fertile.
