STEIMBERG, Rodrigo. Thinking the new in the absence of its conditions: about Althusser and Negri. Tópicos [online]. 2019, n.37, pp.131-157. ISSN 1666-485X.

The present work addresses Negri’s reading of Althusser. Its aim is to show some points that sustain the confluence between both philosophers. First, we will characterize what Negri understands by real subsumption. Secondly, we will approach his take of Spinozian immanence, which is the background that allows us to understand which are the determinations that Negri attributes to living labor as the ontological foundation of capital. Finally, we will go through some of the theses brought forward by Althusser in Sur le matérialismealéatoire, which are the basic support for Negri’s interpretation. Our hypothesisis that the encounter between Althusser and Negri occurs because both place the revolutionary power in an ahistorical principle, which results from the rejection of the teleological burden that both attribute to the Hegelian negativity. Thus, Althusser and Negri postulate that the revolutionary transformation of society depends on a condition that does not happen in its interior: a power that the capital does not subsume, in the case of Negri, and a contingent encounter that is not prefigured in the structure that interrupts, in Althusser’s.
