Description


Combines the heated debates between post-structuralist critics and defenders of democracy to create a new theory

Are we living in post-democratic times - has democracy turned into an empty institutional shell? The upsurge of democratic revolutions and revolts in the West and the Arab world begs to differ. Does this mean there is a political alternative to existing democracy, or has it become impossible to step out of the 'democratic horizon'? Approaching these unfolding historical developments from the perspective of post-foundational democratic thought, Oliver Marchart creates a new model that reconciles both of these viewpoints.
