Elementals and affects, or on making contact with others

By Stephen Frosh

Abstract

This paper begins with the experience of the difficulty of making contact with others, and examines it from the point of view of the “elemental” in which human subjects are immersed, and which they share. The impersonal nature of language is invoked to mobilize a discussion about the characteristics of this elemental, drawing in thinking on shared humanity and its limits. This allows an exploration of the “inhuman” aspect of human aliveness that makes contact with others, and change, feasible
