Subject: Re: Politics and Ethics as Paralogy

I have always understood Lyotard as positing an incredulity towards
master narratives which nevertheless continue to be in play, exert
pressure, etc. This seems in line with his alternate explanation of the
postmodern as irruptive within the modern. The potential parallels with
Negri may be clearest in _Insurgencies_, where the opposition between
constituent and constituted power is at center-stage.
