Between Politics and Antipolitics: Thinking About Politics by Dick Howard

By Dick Howard

This booklet lines a dialectic courting among “politics” and “antipolitics,” the 1st, as used the following, being similar to philosophy as an task of open inquiry, plural democracy, and truth-finding, and the latter within the realm of ideology, technocracy, and presupposed certainties. It returns again to the emergence of a brand new Left stream within the Sixties with a view to stick with the historical past of this courting in view that then. It addresses modern debates through seeking to the autumn of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Bloc, and asking within the wake of that: what's a revolution? eventually, it attracts on those analyses to check the age of terrorism after the tragedy of September eleven, 2001, and resounds with a decision to pursue democracy and genuine politics within the face of latest kinds of antipolitics.

Teachers of the People: Political Education in Rousseau, Hegel, Tocqueville, and Mill
