About this product
- DescriptionWilliam E. Conlly's writings have pushed the leading edge of political theory, first in North America and then in Europe as well, for more than two decades w. This book draws on his numerous influential books and articles to provide a coherent and comprehensive overview of his significant contribution to the field of political theory. The book focuses in particular on three key areas of his thinking: * Democracy: his work in democratic theory - through his critical challenges to the traditions of Rawlsian theories of justice and Habermasian theories of deliberative democracy - has spurred the creation of a fertile and powerful new literature * Pluralism: Conlly's work utterly transformed the terrain of the field by helping to resignify pluralism: from a conservative theory of order based on the status quo into a radical theory of democratic contestation based on a progressive political vision * The Terms of Political Theory: Conlly has changed the language in which Anglo-American political theory is spoken, and entirely shuffled the pack with which political theorists work.
