Subject: [postanarchism] Jürgen Mümken: Postanarchist Thinker in Germany 

Are there any German speakers on this list and if so,
do you know of Jürgen Mümken? Apparently he wrote a
book that is still only in German called "No Power For
No One" that was published by "Black Thread" in 1998.
It would be interesting to hear more about this if
anyone knows anything about it!

Here is the electronic translation of part of an
article I found on the web:


Poststrukturalistischer anarchism in the USA

First undertakes in the USA Todd May in that it
argues, that the anarchism the suitable politically
ethical correlate to the Poststrukturalismus of
Lyotard and Foucault represents. 77 of its standpoint
out of tries it that to free traditional anarchism of
theoretically untenable reason acceptances: the
acceptance that power would be basically repressive,
78 on that zürückgehend the acceptance a certain
person nature in the traditional anarchism, through
the power and domination naturally overcome become
KÖNNE79To analyze direct practices of subjects would
be is opposed. 80 that the poststrukturalistische
practice and Machtbegirff, that power interprets as a
social practices and therefore omnipresent.  Todd
lifts on the other hand the elements of the anarchism
of fragmentation, dissimilarity, variety of companies
instead of measures company and, the engagement in
micropolitics" forth. 81

In Germany, Jürgen Mümken led this thought further in
that it works out in appeal on Judith Butlers
Dekonstruktivismus, that an anarchistic company is not
marked "by the absence of power, but rather the order
of an anarchistic company is displayed on that, that
out of reversible Machtverhätlnisse no stiff
domination conditions entwickeln",82 what by the
Foucaultschen,, practices of the freedom" guaranteed
will should themselves. 83

Note 83: Mümken, Jürgen: no power for no one.  Attempt
of an anarchistic annexation of the philosophical
project of Michel Foucault, in: black thread, Jg.  19,
notebook 1 (1998)
