TL;DR: Rancière is an original thinker who has developed a distinctive position that makes it impossible to affiliate him with any of the mainstream philosophical strands as discussed by the authors, but it is impossible adequately to label them with any usual tags.
Abstract: In 1965, at the age of twenty-five, Jacques Rancière started his philosophical career with a coup de maître. His name appeared next to the name of Louis Althusser on the cover page of Lire le Capital (Reading Capital), the seminal work by one of the most influential maîtres à penser of the time. However, soon after, Rancière parted company with the master and with orthodox Marxism. This gesture and the book that ensued, La leçon d’Althusser (Althusser’s Lesson), announced what has since been Rancière’s place in contemporary French philosophy: that of an original thinker who has developed a distinctive position that makes it impossible to affiliate him with any of the mainstream philosophical strands. The concepts and arguments Rancière has developed reflect some of the major intuitions of post-1945 French philosophy, but it is impossible adequately to label them with any of the usual tags. He is a thinker deeply influenced by Marx, who has totally rejected Marxist sociology. An existentialist who casts away the notion of self-consciousness. A theorist of postmodern society who rejects Lyotard’s philosophy of language. A theorist of social domination who criticizes Foucault’s definition of power. A sociologist and a historian focusing his interest on the misery of the world, but critical of Bourdieu’s most famous paradigms. A thinker of recognition who rejects the notion of understanding. A Deleuzian who puts the notion of the subject at the center of his political thought. The list goes on. Rancière was out of place in the 70s, when Althusser’s brand of Marxism was the official dogma of French intelligentsia. He was out of place in the 80s, when the utopian moment was weeded out of political philosophy. He is out of place today with his neo-Hegelian aesthetics and his reading of literature focused on proletarian emancipation. This knack of occupying a paradoxical position has actually enabled him to create, through the fifteen books he has published to date, his own conceptual world, a “system,” as it were, of impressive depth and coherence. It must also be said that much of the appeal of his work rests not only on Rancière’s brilliant capacity for paradoxical dialectics, but on his luminous prose that makes the most abstruse notions seem evident and seductive. There are two distinct periods in Rancière’s work. The first, covering twenty years and encompassing eight books, is dedicated to social and politi-

TL;DR: Paschall et al. as discussed by the authors investigated the complex materiality underpinning each writer's compositional process in the context of the 20th-century poet-historian, and found a genealogical thread between the archival materiality of Pound's "poem containing history" and the visual experiments in articulation of Howe's palimpsestic reconfigurations thereof.
Abstract: Set against the tradition of the 20th-century poet-historian, the documentary poetics practiced in distinct yet related ways by Ezra Pound and Susan Howe serves as the basis of this study's investigation of the complex materiality underpinning each writer's compositional process. Pound's "Malatesta Cantos" and Howe's "Melville's Marginalia" are the focus of detailed analysis specifically grounded in the archival materials for each sequence in order to explore the development of typographic metaphrasis. Throughout this critical work, Steven Paschall sets the processes of materiality's signification in parallel to Pound and Howe's conceptions of, and engagements with, the historical archive and literary production. Pound's reading of the quattrocento and the saga of Sigismondo Malatesta, and Howe's reading of marginalia and manuscript drafts, resulted in unique source-based poems, the structural and formal techniques of which redefine conventional notions of historiography and interpretative poetic practice. In addressing the mechanics of literary appropriation, editing written language, and the visio-spatial page, Paschall asserts a genealogical thread between the archival materiality of Pound's "poem containing history" and the visual experiments in articulation of Howe's palimpsestic reconfigurations thereof.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors proposed a method to solve the problem of the lack of a suitable solution to the problem by using the information of the user's interaction with the system.
Abstract: В новейшей русскоязычной поэзии субъект снова стал актуальным, проявляя себя как одну из наиболее продуктивных и новаторски реализуемых категорий. Характерны формы субъекта лишь едва намеченного, либо непрерывно меняющегося, как Протей, либо выстраивающего себя заново под влиянием мгновения или ситуации. Общие парадигмы этих форм можно назвать «транссубъектностью», «метасубъектностью» и «сверхсубъектностью». Книга призвана дать толчок обновлению теории и методологии изучения субъектности в поэзии. Взаимодействие литературоведческой практики с лингвистическими, когнитивными теориями, с новейшей западной теорией лирики, а также с философскими концепциями делает возможным многосторонний подход к сложным феноменам современной русскоязычной поэзии.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors present an introduction to the Special Issue on the French philosopher Jacques Ranciere who raises a provocative voice in the current public debate on democracy, equality and education.
Abstract: The article presents an introduction to the Special Issue on the French philosopher Jacques Ranciere who raises a provocative voice in the current public debate on democracy, equality and education. Instead of merely criticizing current practices and discourses, the attractiveness of Ranciere's work is that he does try to formulate in a positive way what democracy is about, how equality can be a pedagogic or educational (instead of policy) concern, and what the public and democratic role of education is. His work opens up a space to rethink and to study, as well as to ‘re‐practice’, what democracy and equality in education are about. He questions the current neutralisation of politics that is motivated by a hatred of democracy. This questioning is for Ranciere also a struggle over words. Against the old philosophical dream of defining the meaning of words, Ranciere underlines the need for the struggle over their meaning. The aim of the article is to clarify how and why education, equality, and democracy a...
