  • Thinking in Exile: The Nomadic Philosophy of Vilém Flusser, in Azimuth edited by Rainer Guldin and Marco Carassai (forthcoming 2019). With contributions by Eva Batličková, Christoph Ernst, Erick Felinto, Rainer Guldin, Daniel Irrgang, Camilla Mozzini-Alister, Francesco Restuccia and with two text by Vilém Flusser translated into Italian by Marco Carassai.

    “A history of modern philosophy would be incomplete without a reference to the notion of exile. This holds especially true for the German philosophy of the 19th and 20th century. Karl Marx wrote and published Das Kapital during his exile in London where he had moved in June 1849 and would remain for the rest of his life. In the late 1930s, the logical positivists fled Germany and Austria for Britain and the United States. One of them, Rudolf Carnap, immigrated to the United States in 1935 and became a naturalized citizen in 1941. From 1936 to 1952, he was a professor of philosophy at the University of Chicago. Similarly, as the anti-intellectual threat and the political violence of Nazism increased, the founders of the Frankfurt School, among them Adorno and Horkheimer, decided to move the Institute for Social Research out of Germany, first to Geneva and then to New York City. After World War II, some members decided to return to Europe, others like Herbert Marcuse preferred to remain in the United States. Both the logical positivists and the Frankfurt School had a profound impact on the countries that had welcomed the exiles. This is also the case with Vilém Flusser who is considered by some one most important Brazilian philosophers of the 20th century.” (From the Preliminary Notes)
