Publication Date: 13 Oct 2008
For Antonio Negri, renowned political philosopher and author of the international bestseller "Empire" (co-authored with Michael Hardt, 2000), a 17 year long chapter of repressive Italian politics of detention, exile, and imprionment recently ended. The question for Negri is how one can preserve the freedom of spirit within a penal structure that focuses more on the interior than exterior life of the prisoner. For Antonio Negri, the cell of resistance from which he wrote became an enclosure of peace.
