The condition of (im)possibility
by Stefania Strouza
The title “The condition of (im)possibility” refers to C.Mouffe’s conception of a radical pluralist democracy as one embedded with negativity. The essay argues that the third landscape could be perceived as the spatial materialization of such a conception of politics. The conflicts and antagonisms that “the third landscape” embodies form the conditions of possibility for the existence of a pluralist space. At the same time, they constitute the condition of impossibility of its final achievement. Resisting delineation within a specific framework, “the third landscape” consists of a locus where the discourse on political and social ecology could be set forth.
