  • The Government of Time

    This volume seeks to provide new resources for understanding the specificity of historical time by studying the articulation of the real, plural temporalities of mass political action. 

  • Plural Temporality

    In this original and insightful new take on Spinoza, Morfino convincingly argues that materialist philosophers must base themselves on Althusser.
