KA Teaching at the Sorbonne did not do much for me: it was too academic. I learnt some things, certainly, here and there, but the decisive things were elsewhere. As when teaching at the Sorbonne later, I had the freedom to speak on the issues on which I was working; these related to the books which succeeded my theses. SE Howdid you come to meet lacan, picasso and heidegger? KA Lacan I had dinner together twice with our partners — one the editorial secretary of Arguments; the other an ex-actress and ex-wife of Bataille. There was the beginning of a discussion which did not continue.

This is not knowledge about Axelos: opinions should be kept to forums and talk pages, not the main page. His works have been translated into 16 languages.

On 5 March , he was awarded an honorary doctorate in the Department of Philosophy and Pedagogy, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Biography[ edit ] Born in Athens , the son of a doctor and his mother descended from the old Athenian family Xirotagarou [3] followed his studies in law and during the Nazi occupation, fought in the Resistance [4]. He studied philosophy at the Sorbonne and taught from to as a professor.

It was also editor of the journal Arguments. Already in the early texts, turned to a typesetting viotheorias that allows practice in the arena of a free and democratic state, even if the road leading to it involves violent social dialectic of revolutionary upheaval. It avoids the charm of the fragmentary speech that saved the thought of Heraclitus, the claim, however, be studied in relevance to the "spirit of his time" and to assess accurately the "beneficial" effect on the work of Engels and Marx.

It justifies the growing interest of contemporary research on Pro-Socratics and generally for ancient Greek philosophy, defining the concept as a way of seeing what the traffic laws of nature, history and culture and reminding at this point in Anti-Duhring Installed in France Axel, when the problematic relationship of man with history symplisiazei Engels and Marx to Nietzsche and Freud.

Special area for this meeting highlighted the economic and philosophical manuscripts of Marx irritant peak in meaningful forms of "alienation. The latter can be lifted only with the building of communist society as a "positive appeal against private property. Following the example of his teacher Heidegger, philosophy through language, often using a continuous flow of aphoristic proposals to describe the items to listen to the "game world".

With the same construction is approaching the "horizons of the world," decrypts "mythological elements" of Marxism and especially announces the advent of "metaistorias" diffused precursor to the "finished preserved, Zero, outdated, socialized, planitikopoiimeni subjectivity" The third trilogy entitled "The unfolding of an investigation" and consists of the books: "Arguments of an investigation" , "Horizons of the World" and "Problems of the stakes" In employing the dipole Marx and Freud, which Axel had never encountered the carelessness of patricide, since they proclaimed that they must "liberate the vital forces" within Marxism and Freudianism as the "autobiographical" notes, which states that "it remains to ask again, to extrapolate the Marxian and Freudian intuitions" The focus of the searches is still the "set-game of sets," especially in the context of the "end of history" debate.

This is unequivocally restated as follows: "Since everything has been said and contradicted in a specific language, mainly the metaphysical language of philosophy and the language of anti-philosophy that subverts the metaphysical, is there is still something of meaning to say, and in what language? So the question for the "end of philosophy" and respect for the "end of history" in the practice meets the "game world" can only be delivered each time from the start, in a horizon that "last indisputably knows anyone to see, sees and provides for much longer than the actual history" What remains, and inhibits the "end" as perfection and Last of our relations with the world?

The stakes, as unabated playful interfaces human world, does not anticipate a wrap of "thinking voice" or "spoken thought," even if we could explore whether the existing world, "where there is much noise about nothing, a certain way would be to say nothing. Thus, in Letters to a young thinker , Axelos tries to offer "a kind of orientation" in erotimatothesia the "labyrinth of the world" with the keys "diistorikes" words embedded in a paragraph without "any final solution", yet without "no comfort" and a "game world" nourishes and destroys all the last words Simultaneously, in the ceaseless struggle with "what is thought to now humanity" understands its debt to Heraclitus, Marx, Freud and Heidegger, to stay on top of this meeting.

As for the "entrance" to the world of theoretical life gave himself, with a reminder of course that is not a "causal shape", the outline of the determinations of this stake, which include the "social environment" and "historic moment" With warp the reflection on the philosophical reflection, almost all the texts arranged in a meta-philosophical idiogenis epilogismos with the intention not to "passively endure our time: this calls that we have launched our requires us to look and see both near and far" The endangerment also not leaning towards the legalization of existing or accomplished by the carelessness of aochlisias: "This game is anything but playful and jocular.

In any case, those "plefrokopoun the impossible" crowds and "theatricality" section to open the door "in a speech poetic and thoughtful, a fervent life"
