Democracy and Pluralism: The Political Thought of William E. Connolly (Routledge Innovations in Political Theory)

Buy

William E. Connolly’s political theory forms a distinct and influential contribution to contemporary debates about the nature and prospects of democratic life in the twenty-first century. His original conceptualisations of pluralism, naturalism, the politics of the body, religion, secularism and his daring incorporation of contemporary neurobiology into political theory and analysis, have opened new paths for intellectual enquiry. Connolly has brought an American tradition of pragmatist political thinking into fruitful conversation with the best of contemporary continental European philosophy and given to both a new energy and focus.

 

In this edited collection, a distinguished panel of political theorists from both Europe and the US provide a critical and nuanced assessment of his contribution to the discipline, especially in the field of democratic theory. They identify the sources of Connolly’s work, its connections to other ways of thinking about the political and they evaluate his continuing contribution to our understanding of the problems and promises of the present and to our appreciation of what it might mean to fulfil the promise of the democratic way of life.

 

The final chapter provides space for Connolly himself to reflect on his interlocutors and further develop his conception of a ‘world of becoming’ considering the links between political theory and the science of complexity while focusing on the immediate challenges facing both American and world politics.

 

Democracy and Pluralism provides a critical introduction to the work of William E. Connolly and to contemporary debates in political theory encompassing topics such as radical democracy, the body, religion, time and contingency.

Animating with Stop Motion Pro
Animating with Stop Motion Pro

This book is designed to explore the history and technique of stop motion animation. The software is secondary and is in fact so easy to use and ingenious that it allows you to concentrate on the art instead of the technology. You will need to use a computer, a camera, and connectors, so let’s get these issues out of the way so we can...

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome: From Pathophysiological Prospects

Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is characterised by the sudden death of an infant that is not predicted by prior medical history and it is still responsible for a large percentage of infant mortalities. The exact causes have long remained unknown, though some risk factors such as including exposure to tobacco smoke, no breast...

Computational Chemistry Using the PC
Computational Chemistry Using the PC
It is a truism (cliche?) that microcomputers have become more powerful on an almost exponential curve since their advent more than 30 years ago. Molecular orbital calculations that I ran on a supercomputer a decade ago now run on a fast desktop microcomputer available at a modest price in any popular electronics store or by mail order catalog. With...
Separable Type Representations of Matrices and Fast Algorithms: Volume 1 Basics. Completion Problems. Multiplication and Inversion Algorithms (Operator Theory: Advances and Applications)
Separable Type Representations of Matrices and Fast Algorithms: Volume 1 Basics. Completion Problems. Multiplication and Inversion Algorithms (Operator Theory: Advances and Applications)
This two-volume work presents a systematic theoretical and computational study of several types of generalizations of separable matrices. The main attention is paid to fast algorithms (many of linear complexity) for matrices in semiseparable, quasiseparable, band and companion form. The work is focused on algorithms of multiplication, inversion...
