​“Why Is Trump So Enjoyable?”

16 Dec '17 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
 
 

​How can we begin to explain the apparent imperviousness of Trump’s popularity to gaffes and scandals that would long since have brought down any other politician? I suggest that in order to begin to answer this question, we need to come grips with the dimension of enjoyment that drives attachment – as well as opposition – to the Trump phenomenon. One of the most important implications of interpreting politics through the lens of enjoyment is the necessity of moving beyond merely interest- and utility-based analyses of public life. And this, in turn, opens up an ethical question: can we imagine a collective ethics that is not organized around a moralized insistence on living a useful life?
