From the Publisher
âUnderlying all the very varied essays in this volume is a set of issues about how we understand human action. And what the essays have in common, I believe, is a conviction that the fundamental requirement of a politics worth the name is that we have an account of human action that decisively marks its distance from assumptions about action as the successful assertion of will. If there is no hinterland to human acting except the contest of private and momentary desire, meaningful action is successful action, an event in which a particular will has imprinted its agenda on the âexternalâ world. Or, in plainer terms, meaning is power . . . and any discourse of justice is illusory.ââ"Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, from the introduction --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
