...operates in the realm of automaticity and the unthought, its particular negotiation between being and having—an engendering of the self from one’s own way of being—can be taken as a possibility for creative “work on the self,” a free granting of the self (an “improperty” as Giorgio Agamben calls it), or a prime opportunity for capitalist modes of propriety, property, and ownership to take hold. It is hardly surprising that one of the first self-help books, Maxwell Maltz’s Psycho-Cybernetics ( 1960 ), has a chapter titled “You Can Acquire the Habit of...

...Rancière’s succinct formulation, “our world is not contemporary to its thought” ( 2013 , p. 62)—a statement echoing Giorgio Agamben’s own understanding of the contemporary: “Those who coincide too well with the epoch, those who are perfectly tied to it in every respect, are not contemporaries, precisely because they do not manage to see it; they are not able to firmly hold their gaze on it” ( 2009 , p. 41). Both Rancière and Agamben understand the “contemporary” as a critical sensibility detached from those norms, precepts, and perceptions that govern an...

...being written for the stage, the great team of translators who would produce the “authorized version” of scripture were busy with their royally appointed task. Instead, borrowing a term from Giorgio Agamben ( 2007 ) , we might do better to speak, as polemicists against the stage so insistently did throughout the period, of a “profanation” of the Bible, that is, as Agamben puts it, of a repositioning of sacred materials beyond the ambit of the sacred (“pro-fanum,” before the temple) “by means of an entirely inappropriate use (or, rather, reuse) of the sacred:...
