Abstract [en]

Cornelius Castoriadis is a Greek philosopher who arrived in France in 1945 to flee the chaotic political and social situation in Greece after the Second World War. Castoriadis’s work is characterized by a multiplicity of fields including philosophy, social critics, economy and psychoanalysis. Castoriadis was a revolutionary activist of the radical Left before being a well-known philosopher. In fact, by presenting his main work in 1975 with the publication The imaginary institution of society, Castoriadis also proposed a theory on bureaucracy. The bureaucratization of societies is characterized by an ongoing disconnection between two social groups that rarely meet each other, order-givers and order-takers. The theory is described and based upon sociological arguments on the development of the USSR that presents a case of total bureaucracy whereas western societies are confronted with fragmented bureaucracies. How can the imaginary signification of bureaucracies be defined? Is it a deep control or surveillance of human activities? What is the impact on aesthetics? In his late period, Castoriadis focused on a comparison between political debate and aesthetic production. The more democratic a society is, the more it generates an aesthetic creativity. The presentation will briefly introduce Castoriadis’ theory of bureaucracy with an analysis of the relation between politics and aesthetics.
