Inclusion and Democracy Oxford Political Theory

#ad
Oxford University Press #ad - Today this implies the need for global democratic institutions. This controversial new look at democracy in a multicultural society considers the ideals of political inclusion and exclusion, and recommends ways to engage in democratic politics in a more inclusive way. This latest work from one of the world's leading political philosophers will appeal to audiences from a variety of fields, including philosophy, ethnic studies, sociology, women's studies, political science, and communications studies.

Inclusion and democracy broadens our understanding of democratic communication by reflecting on the positive political functions of narrative, rhetorically situated appeals, and public protest.

Justice and the Politics of Difference

#ad
Princeton University Press #ad - It critically analyzes basic concepts underlying most theories of justice, formal equality, including impartiality, and the unitary moral subjectivity. In this classic work of feminist political thought, Iris Marion Young challenges the prevailing reduction of social justice to distributive justice. Young urges that normative theory and public policy should undermine group-based oppression by affirming rather than suppressing social group difference.

Danielle allen's new foreword contextualizes Young's work and explains how debates surrounding social justice have changed since--and been transformed by--the original publication of Justice and the Politics of Difference. Democratic theorists, according to Young do not adequately address the problem of an inclusive participatory framework.

Yale University Press.

The Democratic Paradox Radical Thinkers

#ad
Verso #ad - Princeton University Press. From the theory of ‘deliberative democracy’ to the politics of the ‘third way’, the present Zeitgeist is characterized by attempts to deny what Chantal Mouffe contends is the inherently conflictual nature of democratic politics. Taking issue with john rawls and jürgen habermas on one side, clinton and Schröder on the other, and the political tenets of Blair, Mouffe brings to the fore the paradoxical nature of modern liberal democracy in which the category of the ‘adversary’ plays a central role.

Yale University Press. Far from being signs of progress, such ideas constitute a serious threat to democratic institutions. She draws on the work of wittgenstein, and the provocative theses of Carl Schmitt, Derrida, to propose a new understanding of democracy which acknowledges the ineradicability of antagonism in its workings.
