Contingency, Hegemony, Universality: Contemporary Dialogues on the Left (Phronesis) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Their essays, organized as separate contributions that respond to one another, range over the Hegelian legacy in contemporary critical theory, the theoretical dilemmas of multiculturalism, the universalism-versus-particularism debate, the strategies of the Left in a globalized economy, and the relative merits of post-structuralism and Lacanian psychoanalysis for a critical social theory. While the rigor and intelligence with which these writers approach their work is formidable, Contingency, Hegemony, Universality benefits additionally from their clear sense of energy and enjoyment in a revealing and often unpredictable exchange.

Synopsis:

In a compelling and unusual experiment, three eminent theorists engage in a dialogue on central questions of contemporary philosophy and politics.
