Die Diskussion über die Autonomie
der Affekte verdankt sich
temporality: To be interested
in multiple scales on which reality is being constantly built, co-constructed, is
not a luxury but a necessity for criticaltheory nowadays. A lot of theory feminist
theory realised this early on, similarly some STS. We need to abandon such worn
out scales of reference that do not address the currently crucial questions and
engage with what are the microscopic – or then planetary level – processes that
define issues such as the social. This does not necessarily mean abandoning the
important legacy of critical thought for example in

With these interviews, we used the grounded theory method (ABELA
2007) to construct a more accurate interpretation of the problem. All
the investigative work is based on two epistemological framework or pa
radigms: criticaltheory (MAURA 2013) and
hand a collective entity that guides and on the other hand a collective
entity that needs or lets itself to be guided. This is cannot be depicted
through notions such as e.g. intersubjectivity that became predominant in
the later context of the CriticalTheory of Frankfurt School. The relation-
ship between the vanguard and the rest is not one of two generalized per-
sons interacting or communicating in an intersubjective mode with one an-
other. We are not to reduce the collective character of those two entities to
a one-dimensional collective or a supra
the case of games and game studies, many have endeavored to bring about
change through the practice of making games. However, in this paper I wish to
examine the revolutionary potential of how we may play games. Play, both within
natural and virtual space, is something that we are all ostensibly capable of doing
in some form, which cannot be said for the work of either Wark’s gamer theorist
who must read and understand criticaltheory or designers who must know how
to code and have access to costly technologies. Rather than offering an account of
disease metaphor in the German and
the Italian corpus. The persuasive and ideological potential of recurrent disease metaphors
will be explored in order to provide an interpretation of the positions of Germany and Med-
iterranean countries such as Greece and Italy in European media discourse.
