Treasure Island: The Discursive Struggle for Taiwan in the Midst of the New Cold War ：前往观看
This book is made of a collection of articles initially published by their authors on the academic website Invisible Armada (NYCU/NCKU), from 2020 to 2022. These articles, variably placed under the rubric of political philosophy, political sciences, geopolitics, history, or anthropology, are relatively “Taiwan-centred”, having been written by Western authors who either live and work in Taiwan or have been living there for a long time and are familiar with the local context. The authors envision the questions of the present and the evolving international situation by focusing on East Asian stakes and challenges: namely, East Asia as one of the primary “knots” of international tensions and risks of war.
Each of these texts has been thoroughly edited, and some of them have been reshaped from the perspective of this publication. The book discusses how the operation of construction of the “enemy” articulates specific linguistic strategies and tactics, and how it can be operated and led like a war. It also examines how discourses are designed to instil hate and prejudice into the minds of a “people”, eventually consolidating harshly antagonistic—friend/foe—
The perspective promoted in this work relies on a combination of academic standards and commitment to an “ontology of the present”: what its authors relentlessly question is what the singularity of our present is made of and what its dynamics hypothetically lead to. Taiwan is presently not only, as the Western media insistently repeat, “one of the most dangerous places on the planet”. It is also one of the premier observation posts in the world for trying to decipher what our very intricate and enigmatic present is essentially made of. It is, at the same time, a primordial enclave from which to propose a policy of pacification and neutrality in the face of the growing risk of polarisation and conflict. These are the challenges this book addresses by prioritizing the power of critique over alignment with a party or state power.
