Summary

In recent years, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht has dedicated his attention to a description of the broad present – the temporality that characterizes our time, which he conceives as a space marked by a twofold reduction of the “space of experience” and the “horizon of expectations.” This temporal experience specific to contemporaneity has intensified a suspension, as it were, of entities around us, which entails a tendency to, on the one hand, repetition of more sedimented experiences and, on the other, virtualization and consumerism. Along with suspension, however, one also observes a certain tendency of placing sensibility, indeed, the body, in a fundamental place.

Presentation

In recent years, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht has dedicated his attention to a description of the broad present – the temporality that characterizes our time, which he conceives as a space marked by a twofold reduction of the “space of experience” and the “horizon of expectations.” This temporal experience specific to contemporaneity has intensified a suspension, as it were, of entities around us, which entails a tendency to, on the one hand, repetition of more sedimented experiences and, on the other, virtualization and consumerism. Along with suspension, however, one also observes a certain tendency of placing sensibility, indeed, the body, in a fundamental place.

It is in the latter sense that Gumbrecht has called attention to a “production of presence,” i.e. an expansion of experience (whether it be in relation to the present or to the past) based on the instigation of atmospheres (Stimmungen) latent in the arts, in literature, music, history, philosophy, sports – spaces through which other regions of reality might become manifest. Thus, we have an aesthetic reflection founded upon the description and comprehension of contemporary temporality, and the expansion of possible experiences, a reflection pregnant with significant aesthetic, ethical-political and epistemological repercussions. 

Therefore, we invite submissions that reflect on aesthetics, the arts, ethics/politics and the sciences from a standpoint concerned with their relationship with temporality and today’s world, including emerging entities and perspectives; equally desirable are submissions that engage those topics as key domains for the description, understanding, critique and even reorganization of contemporaneity. Finally, we welcome submissions focused on the relations between Gumbrecht and Nietzsche, Heidegger, Benjamin, Adorno, Gadamer, Danto, Derrida, Deleuze, Foucault, Agamben, Koselleck, Lacan, Lacoue-Labarthe, Sloterdijk, Zizek, Butler, Achille Mbembe and other theorists of post-colonialism, deconstruction, critical theory and post-modernism.

In the second mention Surname of the author (followed by comma); first names (followed by a comma); op.cit. (in the cited work); source page. When the notes of the same author are in sequence, the Latin expressions can be used, followed by the page number quoted. A) apud: second-hand citation; cf: confronting refers to; ibid in the same work cited (same author, same work, but different pages); id same author (same author, same work, same page); op.cit. in the work cited. Short direct quotes (up to three lines) must be enclosed in quotation marks and incorporated into the text and without changing the font. Long citations (more than three lines) must have a 4 cm indentation of the left margin, with lower letter than the used text (11 point size) and without quotation marks. Indirect citations should come without quotation marks. Quotes of citations may use the expression apud and the original work to which the consulted author is referring must be cited. For other information about the use of citations, the author should consult ABNT (NBR 10520: 2002).
