Rodrigo Nunes / Neither Vertical Nor Horizontal

In this Theory from the Margins event, we engage with Prof Rodrigo Nunes’s about his recent book >Neither Vertical Nor Horizontal: A Theory of Political Organization’. Verso, 2021.

Professor Rodrigo Nunes of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio). Nunes holds a PhD in philosophy from Goldsmiths College (2009) and is the author of “Neither Vertical Nor Horizontal. A Theory of Political Organisation” (2021) and “Organisation of the Organisationless: Collective Action After Networks” (2014), as well as articles in publications such as Les Temps Modernes, Radical Philosophy, South Atlantic Quarterly, Jacobin, Al Jazeera, and The Guardian. He has been involved in several initiatives in Brazil and in Europe as both an organizer and educator, including the first editions of the World Social Forum. Franco “Bifo” Berardi offered the following commentary on Neither Vertical Nor Horizontal and its innovative look into political theory: “This is the book we’ve been waiting for: Rodrigo Nunes systematically assesses the problems the left has faced since the Occupy movement and its failure. A must-read for the activists of our time.”
