Whatever-ism Forum:
Let’s Work with Whatever (and Do Whatever Works?)

In Coming Community, Agamben sees “whatever” as “that which is neither particular nor general, individual nor generic,” “a singularity plus an empty place,” and “the event of an outside.” Depending on usages and contexts, “whatever” (e.g., どうでもよさ, なんでもよさ in Japanese, 隨便 in Chinese, 襯採 in Taiwanese) can be a word of pluralism and contradiction. It can in turn connote flexible options (“whatever works” in politics), nonchalance (a “come-what-may” attitude of life), empty remainder (“you may like beer, wine, sake, or whatever”) , disengagement, contempt (“Whatever. I don’t give a damn”, it is of no particular significance to me), disinterest, triviality, vagueness (“Let’s be Bohemian, whatever that is”) , indifference (“whatever you say, man”) and non-difference (“You can draw whatever” ). It also has conceptual valance in “whatever-ism” (nalaizhuyi, 拿來主義) (Lu Xun),“whatever being” in coming politics (Agamben), and “any-space-whatever” in cinematic image (Deleuze)...etc. In this conversation, we hope to work with whatever allows us to exercise creative engagement with thoughts and the world.
