This essay critiques classical anarchism using Nietzsche’s concept of ‘ressentiment’ and Michel Foucault’s ideas on power. While Newman caricatures ’classical anarchism’ in his haste to define his own ‘post-anarchism’, and tends to favour individual identity over collective revolutionary action, he does make important points about the need for anarchism to be more than just a reaction to the state, (...)
NEWMAN, Saul. The Horizon of Anarchy: Anarchism and Contemporary Radical Thought
Abstract This paper explores the relevance of anarchism for current debates in continental radical political philosophy. It argues that anarchism – as a form of politics which proposes the abolition of state power – is the unacknowledged referent for radical politics today, and that contemporary thinkers such as Alain Badiou, Jacques Rancière and Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri, amongst (...)
NEWMAN, Saul. Postanarchism and space: revolutionary fantasies and autonomous zones
Abstract In this paper, I call for a re-consideration of anarchism and its alternative ways of conceptualising spaces for radical politics. Here I apply a Lacanian analysis of the social imaginary to explore the utopian fantasies and desires that underpin social spaces, discourses and practices – including planning, and revolutionary politics. I will go on to develop – via Castoriadis and (...)

NEWMAN, Saul. "Voluntary Servitude Reconsidered: Radical Politics and the Problem of Self-Domination"
Author’s Abstract In this paper I investigate the problem of voluntary servitude — first elaborated by Etienne de la Boëtie — and explore its implications for radical political theory today.

Substance: A Review of Theory & Literary Criticism (2007) Vol. 36 Issue 2, p3-19. Abstract Anarchism as a political philosophy and activist tradition, can be seen as the hidden referent for radical political struggles today. It shows how anarchist theory can intervene in the contemporary debates in continental theory over the future of radical politics, and allow a rethinking and (...)
