Rebuilding Jerusalem

The saying that people can more easily imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism has been attributed to several people. Frederic Jameson among them. I have no idea. But it is true. Frederic Lordon’s book The Willing Slaves of Capitalism begins his gloss on Marx (in a sense) with Spinoza.

“Spinoza calls ‘conatus’ the effort by which ‘each thing, as far as it can by its own power, strives to persevere in its being.” Frederic Lordon (Ibid)

Spinoza is undergoing a kind of renaissance these last ten years. Or maybe twenty. And this is probably a good thing. *Conatus* is not an easy or simple concept. It is in essence the basic energy that comes with existential awareness. It is that which sets Being in motion. Lordon says it is that fundamental energy that sets bodies in motion. But I think it is meant as something even more an elemental — that which makes it possible to speak of bodies in motion, to be aware. The energy from which comes awareness, perhaps.
