Title: Reflections on Genocide. The Armenian Case: A Radical Negativity and Polivalent Dynamics
Authors: Zekiyan, Boghos Levon
Issue Date: 1998
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: The aim of this article is not a general discussion of the notion of genocide as such. Neither is it to deal with the historicity of the Armenian genocide in particluar. It reflects on the genocide in such a perspective as that of a philosophy of history, leaving from the concrete case of the Armenian genocide. A similar approach, if duly carried out with a rigorous methodolgy, will help to better understand how life may be still possible after death, and how Armenian collective identity has been perceived by the surviving community after the Catastrophe. The author stresses the importance of the lose of the Homeland, the "eradication", as a moment of radical negativity; nontheless it is not absolute, since it shows a prominent dialectic character, delivering a chain reaction of vital issues.
