Democracy, Pluralism and Political Theory

£25.99

Product description

William E. Connolly's writings have been at the leading edge of political theory since the 1970s. This book draws on his numerous influential books and articles to provide a coherent and comprehensive overview of his innovatory work and his contribution to the field of political theory. This book focuses in particular on his thought in three key areas:

Democracy - Connolly has created an entirely new subfield in political thought, that of 'agonistic democracy'. His work in democratic theory - through his critical challenges to John Rawls on a theory of justice and to Jurgen Habermas on deliberative democracy - has created a powerful new literature.

Pluralism - Connolly has remade entirely the theory of pluralism, transforming it from a conservative theory of order into a radical theory of democratic contestation based on a progressive political vision.

The Terms of Political Theory - Connolly has changed the language in which Anglo-American political theory is conducted, opening it out to an entirely different 'Continental' tradition in political and philosophical thought.
