• As much as we try to redeem it through reproduction and affection, sex is an uncanny force that pushes us beyond the confines of what we consider fully human: beyond good and evil, beyond understanding and meaning, in a wild and unthinkable region that bothers us at the same time as it excites us, from which conventions of relational life only partially manage to keep us at a distance. Sexual/Political compares various cartographies of this region that have been produced in modern philosophy, psychoanalytic thought, 20th century political theory, up through more recent queer philosophies. Through these cartographies it attempts to orient in our contemporary moment. Freud is read with Marx, Fanon, and Foucault (then with Leo Bersani, Luciano Parinetto, Monique Wittig, Teresa de Lauretis, Angela Davis, Guy Hocquenghem, Mario Mieli, Lee Edelman, Judith Butler, Paul Preciado and many more) to comprehend the psychic processes that determine the political consensus of sovereign populism in Italy, Europe, and the world. The result is an ironic, refined, and fascinating narration, in which the dismissal of neo-fascist virility begins from the anus—a symbol of that black whole of subjectivation that psychoanalysis teaches us to call ‘drive.’
