Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a major contribution to social and political theory in the global age. Without being postmodern or anti modern, Sanchez Flores shows how the categories of Western understanding have universalized a particular and limited set of experiences. Rejecting the dogmatic inclusion offered within these categories, she offers a radically new way of thinking about the dilemmas of life together in a common world, one that is open to ways of thinking and being outside the western tradition. It is necessary reading for anyone who wants to engage with the issues of a truly global political philosophy."
--Professor John Holmwood, University of Sussex

By Thorn-rennig Kray on March 21, 2014
Format: Hardcover
I'd like to be very brief:

Yesterday I got this book from my local university library to make a suggestion if it shall be listed in a bibliography for a major German encyclopedia. But after reading the introduction, I decided against it.
Here are the two sentences (p. 2/3) that lead me to the conclusion not to list it:

"This book is, thus, an attempt at providing an alternative substantive basis for human order that is appropriate for interaction under the present conditions of globalization."

&

"The theoretical construction that I propose in this book models the idea that the culture where we abide, our worldview, our cosmology is created by us and, at the same time, it is already creative of our conception of self."

Besides the truly awful prose, I found it utterly preposterous to make such grand "attempts," obviously suggesting that the author has found some kind of archimedean point from which she can provide an "alternative basis for human order." I mean, you serious? The second sentence, in its pseudo-fancy paradoxicality (you see, these words are easy to use, aren't they?!), is just a bummer and bespeaks what I expect will come further down the road.

Fortunately, I don't have to read this book.
