Язык как праксис: к теории речевого акта Паоло Вирно
This article reconstructs the understanding of a speech act in Paolo Virno`s political philosophy. In postfordism as a modern mode of production, we can observe erasure of boundaries between labor and action. This stems from the changes in forms of communication. Labor acquires the features of political action, since it involves the need for constant communicative cooperation between individuals. On this basis, Virno tries to justify the theory of language as a public space in which each separate speech act can be seen as an elementary form of political action. The main features of this action will be spectacularity and virtuosity. The author tries to substantiate the connection between publicity and language act through the concept of potentiality – a special feature of modern subjectivity – or, the multitude, that arises under the infl uence of the modern media.
