Extraordinary Responsibility: Politics beyond the Moral by Shalini Satkunanandan

By Shalini Satkunanandan

In striking accountability: Politics past the ethical Calculus, Shalini Satkunanandan identifies a typical tendency to view our accountability as anything that may be quantified and discharged. She indicates how numerous key thinkers within the heritage of philosophy and political conception - Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, Weber, and Heidegger - every one recommend that this calculative or bookkeeping method of our accountability effaces the incalculable, un-dischargeable and extra exhausting dimensions of human accountability. in addition they show how this method of accountability is on the middle of 'moralism' - the pettifogging, senseless, legalistic, excessively judgmental, or punitive policing of our personal or others' compliance with ethical tasks. by means of elaborating each one of those thinkers' narratives of a tricky 'conversion' to a extra nuanced method of accountability, Satkunanandan explores how we would be much less moralistic in our political debates (including these round international warming, using drone assaults on suspected terrorists, and the federal debt).
