Editorial Reviews

Review

"A high-powered introduction to key issues in current political philosophy. With original essays, distinguished scholars respond to seminal texts by major figures in the continental tradition. Effective, informative, and timely." Thomas R. Flynn, Emory University


"Selected by a leading specialist in political philosophy, the essays in this collection represent an ingenious way to approach recent debates in continental philosophy. The juxtaposition of essays by major political thinkers with interpretive essays that explain the context reflects thoughtful and clever matchmaking. The historical movements of phenomenology, existentialism, and critical theory are complemented by current discussions of poststructuralism, postmodernism, and postcolonialism. This anthology will be a valuable guide to the general reader who is interested in these rubrics as well as a useful text at all levels of the curriculum." David Hoy, University of California, Santa Cruz

From the Back Cover

The Political is a collection of readings by the most important political philosophers representing the six major schools of Continental philosophy: Phenomenology, Existentialism, Critical Theory, Poststructuralism, Postmodernism, and Postcolonialism.

Many of the selections, written by such notable thinkers as Arendt, Sartre, Habermas, Foucault, Lyotard, and Dussel, distill and exemplify the distinctive schools of Continental philosophy. Other selections, written by Iris Marion Young, Judith Butler, William McBride, Eduardo Mendieta, Simon Chambers, and David Ingram situate these primary readings in relation to their historical contexts and the contemporary world.

These commentaries encompass issues such as global justice and the fate of the nation-state; the use of state-sanctioned violence; the impact of group rights and identity politics on democratic governance; the relationship between governance, normativity, and power in constituting and restricting freedom; the connection between universal rights and substantive democratic policies; and the dialectic between revolutionary practice and institutional regimentation.

This is the first anthology of its kind devoted to emphasizing Continental political philosophy as an important area of study in its own right.
