Rendre justice à ce qui est. Ou l’émancipation comme parturition

Abstract : What if the real work of critique consisted less of “rendering reality unacceptable” and rather of “doing justice to reality?” From this paradoxical perspective, the question of emancipation focuses less on defining what we should emancipate ourselves from, and more on what we should emancipate. What is there in what we are and in what we already do that deserves to be valued and freed from its shackles, to be given free rein? Could we follow Marcel Mauss and John Dewey in describing a pragmatic socialism - a practical idealism - according to which the ideal of emancipation can only be realized insofar as it is the practical idealization of the real, which the real itself anticipates.
