FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF RESISTANCE
Theoretical weekends returns with an interview from Upping the Anti with Michael Hardt. The interview was conducted in 2007. Hardt, of course, is most popularly known for his partnership with Antonio Negri in the writing of "Empire, Multitude, and Commonwealth". That is probably unfair as Hardt is, of course, an actual person, an
individual in his own right. Michael Hardt is not a revolutionary. He
is rather a political philosopher and literary theorist. He is a
professor and a writer. But what are you gonna do? Those are the
folks who tend to write a lot of theory (workers and revolutionaries don't tend to have the time to sit around writing long tracts)...and this is theoretical weekends.
