新著紹介

 ここしばらく、ブログにアップしてこなかったのは、ひたすら私の怠惰と多忙の故である。正確には年度末の学務の多忙とルワンダ虐殺紀行、アメリカ学会出張の故である。ルワンダについては改めてブログで掲載する。
 もとより、あまりアクセスされるブログでもないから、アップがあろうがなかろうが関係ないようなものだが、一応公共空間に私的意見を一度でもさらした以上、継続する義務はあるだろう。
 というわけで、久しぶりにブログを再開する。再開する第一弾が拙著の紹介というのも気が引けるが、なるべく多くの読者に手にとって、できればご笑覧いただきたく、汗顔のいたりではあるが、ここに概要を記す次第である。
 まずは1月末に芙蓉書房出版から出版した『ストラテジー選書1、兵器の歴史』である。150頁ほどのリブレットで、初学者にも読みやすいように図版、写真も多数掲載し、執筆、編集してある。本書では、「兵器を身体の模倣と捉え、兵器がどのように身体機能を外延化し、拡張してきたか、あるいは身体機能を外部化し道具、機械、装置に置換させたか」を明らかにしている。身体の模倣に加え、もう一つの分析枠組みとしてトフラーの「波」概念を用いている。すなわちトフラーの農業、工業、情報の三時代の区分にあわせて兵器は道具、機械、装置へと発展してきたのである。そして現在は「身体の兵器化」の歴史から一転して「兵器の身体化」の歴史が始まったことを考察している。
 続いてもう一冊は、春風社から3月末に出版した『戦争の読み方-グローバル・テロと帝国の時代に』である。オビの惹句を引用する。「9.11は何をもたらし、何を告げたのか?ネグリとハート、カルドーらの議論を整理し、変貌する紛争の系譜をたどる。そのとき明らかになるポスト近代の世界システムとは?衰退する国民国家体制に代わる「人間の安全保障」の可能性をさぐる」。「本書が提起した問題のすべては、じつはホッブズが国家を創造する際に抱えた問題とおなじである。つまり、暴力をいかに管理するか、である。ホッブズは国家をつくって暴力を管理した。しかし、その国家が暴力を管理できないとすると、国家に代わって暴力を管理する主体は何になるのか」。
 当初は学術論文として書いていたが、有能な若い編集者の手でより読みやすく編集が施され、一般の読者にも読みやすい文体、体裁となった。とはいえ内容的に当初の学術論文の水準を落とすものではなく、間違いなく政治学の先端分野に挑戦していると自負している。
 佐伯啓思が『諸君!』5月号で「アメリカ文明の落日と新たなる『世界史の哲学』の構築」と題して思想・哲学・世界観の不在の現状を憂いているが、彼と全く同様の問題意識をもって執筆したのが拙著である。佐伯はニーチェを西田哲学で乗り越えようとしている。一方私はニーチェの源流であり近代思想の淵源であるホッブズを東洋思想で乗りこえようと目論んでいる。東洋思想が西田哲学となるのか、儒教となるのか、仏教となるのか、あるいは他の思想となるのか全くわからない。いずれにせよホッブズの自然状態仮説を粉砕する思想・哲学を模索していきたい。
 乞う、ご期待。あわせて両拙著のご講読なにとぞよろしく。

Some have used it as a stepping stone to find the middle ground. When we speak of controlling one's thoughts or body we think of possesion, and generally when we think of possesion we think of Demons. As an all time original, I'm wondering how the author portrays this kind of environment and just how the amazing story is told throughout the film that could not look like it had been a thought that simply came out of nowhere for people who would likely Watch In Time Full Movie.
