Argos aims to circulate writing about topical matters of public and political import that is local, critical and accessible. We believe critical intellectual conversation should be heard here in Aotearoa-New Zealand, not simply published for credit in international fora for more limited and specialised audiences. Of particular interest to us is writing that grounds its concern with the public or political good of place-making in theory or philosophy.

Author’s note: sections of the latter part of this paper were written in response to an a...

...communist and socialist, turning these into cultural phantasms or zombies that traffic alongside those dissidents now labelled subversives and terrorists. It has also devalued and trivialised campaigns working towards social justice, collective causes, and all the advances in labour rights that have been achieved in past decades. As such, this tendency represents a multi-generational culture of wilful forgetfulness entrenched in fear. Despite th...

...truth not be defined as an affair of mastery, but rather as dependent upon an unconditional. Derrida maintains that ‘[i]t would be necessary to dissociate a certain unconditional independence of thought, of deconstruction, of justice, of the Humanities, of the University, and so forth from any phantasm of indivisible sovereignty and of sovereign mastery’. If we conceded to the notion of the master (the teacher) as he or she who possesses ce...

...with knowledge, instead of simply managing it). To be cooperative means to work together in constructive ways, in pursuit of common and ‘uncommon’ goals, in order to cultivate and uphold dignity and mana—to be just and to do justice. Self-consciousness requires that every detail of the university’s operation is not simply a means to an end but embodies and enacts these principles to their fullest. In essence, the real university exists to provid...
