Gazumped (academically)

Check out this review (pdf here) by Negri of Agamben latest (although the translation seems a little unsteady, or it may be the maestro's style). Annoyingly it appears that:

1. Agamben has already taken-up providence as a model for subjectivity (although it appears to be a negative model)

2. Negri critiques Agamben's lack of agency / subjectivity for his thinking of inoperativity (which is the argument of an article of mine which may/may not be forthcoming - I haven't heard back from the journal).
Back to the drawing-board...
