About this product
- DescriptionAlessandro Ferrara explains what he terms 'the democratic horizon' - the idea that democracy is longer simply one form of government among others, but is instead almost universally regarded as the only legitimate form of government, the horizon to which most of us look. Professor Ferrara reviews the challenges under which democracies must operate, focusing on hyperpluralism, and impresses a new twist onto the framework of political liberalism. He shows that distinguishing real democracies from imitations can be difficult, responding to this predicament by enriching readers' understanding of the spirit of democracy; clearing readers' views of pluralism from residues of ethcentrism; and conceiving multiple versions of democratic culture, rooted in the diversity of civilizational contexts.
- Author BiographyAlessandro Ferrara is Professor of Political Philosophy in the Department of History, Culture and Society at the University of Rome 'Tor Vergata'. He is the author of four books, including The Force of the Example: Explorations in the Paradigm of Judgment (2008).
