Que nous reste-t-il de los angeles communautÃ©? De ce qui a Ã©tÃ© pensÃ©, voulu, dÃ©sirÃ© sous le mot de "communautÃ©"? Il semble qu'il ne nous en reste rien. Ses mythes sont suspendus, ses philosophies sont Ã©puisÃ©es, ses politiques sont jugÃ©es. On pourrait dire aussi: "la communautÃ©", c'Ã©tait le mythe, c'Ã©tait los angeles philosophie, c'Ã©tait los angeles politique - et tout cela, qui est une seule et mÃªme selected, est fini. Ce livre essaie de dire ceci: il y a, malgrÃ© tout, une rÃ©sistance et une insistance de l. a. communautÃ©. Il y a, contre le mythe, une exigence philosophique et politique de l'Ãªtre en commun. Non seulement elle n'est pas dÃ©passÃ©e, mais elle vient au devant de nous, elle nous reste Ã dÃ©couvrir. Ce n'est pas l'exigence d'une Åuvre communautaire (d'une communion ou d'une communication). C'est ce qui Ã©chappe aux Åuvres, nous laissant exposÃ©s les uns aux autres. C'est un communisme inscrit dans son propre dÃ©soeuvrement.
