Review Text

'In this volume, a young generation of political theorists and philosophers successfully overcome the established paradigms of political philosophy. In leaving behind problems related to a heavily normative approach to politics, they return to classical problems in our political self-understanding, such as the conceptualization of ideology, engagement with questions of social suffering and human needs, and attention to the subject of politics.' - Axel Honneth, University of Frankfurt, Germany.

'Taken together, this selection of essays provides an in-depth glimpse at some of the key issues within political philosophy today.' - Political Studies Review
