In the introduction, I set up the basic idea of misinterpellation, beginning with Franz Kafka’s parable about Abraham wherein the call put out to the famous Abraham was also heard by many other unintended people (who also happened to be called Abraham). One of the latter, the least desirable Abraham of all, actually planned to show up at Mt. Moriah. This exemplifies misinterpellation wherein the one who answers the call is not the one who is wanted. As I explain, the person who answers the call is actually never the person who is desired. The projection of a unitary person put out by interpellation is a chimera and in fact we are all the unwanted and undesired misinterpellated subject who shows up, like the other Abraham in Kafka’s story. I also discuss how this book will attempt to think anarchistically about not only the subject but also the temporality that they inhabit. This poses challenges for how I tell these stories insofar as the misinterpellated figures that I look at in this book, although indeed exemplary, are no more special or unique than anyone else. And the events I look at too, while spectacular, are not any more inevitable or fated than any other moment. An anarchist notion of time and subjectivity means that all times and all moments are equally momentous and filled with radical possibilities.
