In the 6th century b. c. -twenty-five hundred years ahead of Einstein-Heraclitus of Ephesus declared that power is the essence of topic, that every thing turns into power in flux, in relativity. His nice publication, On Nature, the world's first coherent philosophical treatise and touchstone for Plato, Aristotle, and Marcus Aurelius, has lengthy been misplaced to history-but its surviving fragments have for hundreds of thousands of years tantalized our best thinkers, from Montaigne to Nietzsche, Heidegger to Jung. Now, acclaimed poet Brooks Haxton provides a strong free-verse translation of all one hundred thirty surviving fragments of the lessons of Heraclitus, with the traditional Greek originals fantastically reproduced en face.

Example text

It is a justification, an extrinsic motivation of the ethical process, which is employed until the ethical process has reached the solidity of the immediate relationship between essence and existence, or their identity, which has no justification other than itself. (Negri 1991b: 174) On the other hand, he assigns to this requirement a genuinely dialectical significance by interpreting it as ‘the last attempt to play the game of the contradiction’ (Negri 1991b: 174): by momentarily obstructing the movement of authentic liberation, by a final repetition of the crisis that animates Spinoza’s entire speculative journey, he starts the progression over again and prepares the way that is going to lead, after the Ethics, to the Political Treatise.

He only uses the French word pouvoir, which corresponds to Negri’s usage of potere, in one place, which is marked by the inclusion of the French word in brackets. 2.

Marx 1976: 447–9) For Marx, ‘cooperation’ is a basic fact—people working together produce more than individuals working in isolation; however, it is how this fact shapes the historical development of capitalism and the logic of Capital which is of interest to Negri. The cooperative power determines the particular power relation of capitalism: as more workers are assembled it becomes more necessary to supervise such workers. ‘That a capitalist should command in the field of production is now as indispensable as that a general should command on the field of battle’ (Marx 1976: 448).
