Hegemony and socialist strategy : towards a radical democratic politics by Ernesto Laclau( Book )

66 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its original publication fifteen years ago, this hugely influential book has been at the centre of much debate. The arguments and controversies it has been aroused are, furthermore, far from abating: the disintegration of the Soviet bloc, the emergence of new social and political identities linked to the transformation of late capitalism, and the crisis of a left-wing project whose essentialist underpinnings have increasingly come under fire have, if anything, made more relevant than ever the theoretical perspective that the book proposes. Moreover the political project of 'radical and plural democracy' that it advocates provides a much-needed antidote to the attempts to formulate a Third Way capable of overcoming the classical opposition between Left and Right. Updated with a new preface, this is a fundamental text for understanding the workings of hegemony and grasping the nature of contemporary social struggle and their significance for democratic theory
The legacy of Wittgenstein : pragmatism or deconstruction by Ludwig Nagl( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is striking in the current reception of Wittgenstein is just how wide-ranging his influence has become among those who are trying to elaborate an alternative to the rationalistic framework dominant today. Pragmatists and deconstructionists are at the forefront of such a movement, of course, and it comes as no surprise that several of them have turned to Wittgenstein and have opened up new perspectives on his work. This joint interest has created a very welcome bridge between post-analytic and continental philosophy which have all but ignored each other for far too long. A promising dialogue is now developing, one to which the contributions to this volume can testify. They were originally presented at a conference organized in November 1999 at the Centre for the Study of Democracy at the University of Westminster in London, sponsored by the Austrian Cultural Institute
The democratic paradox by Chantal Mouffe( Book )

62 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on the work of Wittgenstein and Derrida, and engaging with the provocative theses of Carl Schmitt, she proposes a new understanding of democracy in terms of 'agonistic pluralism' which acknowledges the ineradicability of antagonsim and the impossibility of a final resolution of conflicts." --Cover
On the political by Chantal Mouffe( Book )

55 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deconstruction and pragmatism by Simon Critchley( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and German and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacques Derrida and Richard Rorty are two of the most famous living philosophers. Deconstruction and pragmatism are the two major intellectual traditions whose current influence would be unthinkable without their work. This ground-breaking book brings these two thinkers together in a critical confrontation between these two traditions. Derridean deconstruction and Rortian pragmatism are both accused by their enemies of undermining our ideas of truth and reason, but do their ideas lead to intellectual and political chaos? Both seek to clarify what is at stake intellectually and politically while two other distinguished theorists, Simon Critchley and Ernesto Laclau, provide a critical context for their debate and bring out the importance of the convergences and differences between the two
The return of the political by Chantal Mouffe( Book )

44 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gramsci and Marxist theory by Antonio Gramsci( Book )

18 editions published between 1979 and 2015 in English and Korean and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book familiarizes the English-speaking reader with the debate on the originality of Gramsci's thought and its importance for the development of Marxist theory. The contributors present the principal viewpoints regarding Gramsci's theoretical contribution to Marxism, focussing in particular on his advances in the study of the superstructures, and discussing his relation to Marx and Lenin and his influence in Eurocommunism. Different interpretations are put forward concerning the elucidation of Gramsci's key concepts, namely: hegemony, integral state, war of position and passive revolution
Dimensions of radical democracy : pluralism, citizenship, community by Chantal Mouffe( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The themes of citizenship and community are today at the centre of a fierce debate as both Left and Right try to mobilize them for their cause. For the Left such notions are crucial in all the current attempts to redefine political struggle through extending and deepening democracy. But, argue the contributors to this volume, these concepts need to be made compatible with the pluralism that marks modern democracy. Rather than reject the liberal tradition, they argue, the aim should be to radicalize it." "These essays set out to examine what types of 'citizen' and 'community' might be required by such a radical and plural democracy. From a range of disciplines and a fruitful diversity of theoretical perspectives, the contributors help us to address the following challenge: how to defend the greatest possible pluralism without destroying the very framework of the democratic political community." "Despite their differences, a vision emerges from these essays which is sharply at odds both with the universalistic and rationalistic conception to be found in the work of Habermas, and with postmodern celebrations of absolute heterogeneity. For this book is an exploration of politics--of a politics where power, conflict and antagonism will always play a central role."--Jacket
The challenge of Carl Schmitt( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schmitt's thought serves as a warning against the dangers of complancency entailed by triumphant liberalism. In this collection of essays Schmitt reminds us that the essence of politics is struggle
For a left populism by Chantal Mouffe( Book )

16 editions published in 2018 in 4 languages and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are currently witnessing in Western Europe a “populist moment” that signals the crisis of neoliberal hegemony. The central axis of the political conflict will be between right- and left-wing populism. By establishing a frontier between “the people” and “the oligarchy,” a leftpopulist strategy could bring together the manifold struggles against subordination, oppression and discrimination.This strategy acknowledges that democratic discourse plays a crucial role in the political imaginary of our societies. And through the construction of a collective will, mobilizing common affects in defence of equality and social justice, it will be possible to combat the xenophobic policies promoted by right-wing populism
Hegemonie und radikale Demokratie : zur Dekonstruktion des Marxismus by Ernesto Laclau( Book )

16 editions published between 1991 and 2019 in German and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spätestens seit dem Zusammenbruch des realen Sozialismus sind demo-kratietheoretische Fragestellungen zu einem zentralen Feld der intellektuellen Auseinandersetzung geworden. Hier gehen die Autoren eine wenn nicht die entscheidende Leerstelle linker, marxistischer Theoriebildung an. Über eine Dekonstruktion des Marxismus vornehmlich der II. und III. Internationalen versuchen sie den Blick freizumachen für eine antiessentialistische Konzeption des Sozialen. Dabei führt ihre Radikalisierung und Verknüpfung von Gramscis Überlegungen zur Hegemonie, Foucaults Diskursanalytik und Leforts libertärer Politikkonzeption zu einer neuen Artikulation von postindivi-dualistischem Liberalismus, radikaler und pluraler Demokratie sowie nicht-totalitärem Sozialismus. Dieses Buch stellt somit auch einen Beitrag zur Herausbildung einer neuen Politik der Linken dar
Chantal Mouffe : hegemony, radical democracy, and the political by Chantal Mouffe( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chantal Mouffe's writings have been innovatory with respect to democratic theory, Marxism and feminism. Her work derives from, and has always been engaged with, contemporary political events and intellectual debates. This sense of conflict informs both the methodological and substantive propositions she offers. Determinisms, scientific or otherwise, and ideologies, Marxist or feminist, have failed to survive her excoriating critiques. In a sense she is the original post-Marxist, rejecting economisms and class-centric analyses, and the original post-feminist, more concerned with the varieties of 'identity politics' than with any singularities of 'women's issues'. While Mouffe's concerns with power and discourse derive from her studies of Gramsci's theorisations of hegemony and the post-structuralisms of Derrida and Foucault, her reversal of the very terms through which political theory proceeds is very much her own. She centres conflict, not consensus, and disagreement, not finality. Whether philosophically perfectionist, or liberally reasonable, political theorists have been challenged by Mouffe to think again, and to engage with a new concept of 'the political' and a revived and refreshed notion of 'radical democracy'. The editor has focused on her work in three key areas: - Hegemony: From Gramsci to 'Post-Marxism' - Radical Democracy: Pluralism, Citizenship and Identity - The Political: A Politics Beyond Consensus The volume concludes with a new interview with Chantal Mouffe. James Martin is Professor of Politics at Goldsmiths, University of London, UK. He has published widely on Italian political thought, contemporary political theory and rhetoric."--

Podemos : in the name of the people by ĺñigo Errejón( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rise of Podemos in Spain is part of a wave of European left political initiatives that are putting forward new ideas for change and innovative ways of thinking about politics. The traditional left in Europe has been in difficulties for some time now: the communist tradition is a shadow of its former self, while social democracy seems unable to meet the challenge of the financial crisis. The thinkers and activists of Podemos have been at the forefront of rethinking based on moving away from orthodoxies, bringing new hope to the left.In this book Inigo Errejon of Podemos and political theorist Chantal Mouffe discuss the emergence of these new movements, and in particular of Podemos. They critically engage with both the older traditions and the newly emerging parties and movements. They explore new ways of creating collective identities, and building majorities, while also reflecting on the major political challenges facing the left. The conversation between them is an intervention from two people who are ideally placed to draw on the seminal earlier theoretical work of Mouffe with Ernesto Laclau, and to link it directly into the practice of the new politics.This book is therefore important reading for those interested in the state of the contemporary European left in general, and specifically in the strategic issues facing Podemos in Spain. It makes an essential contribution towards the creation of a new left politics
Art as a public issue : how art and its institutions reinvent the public dimension( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Varios autores reflexionan acerca del espacio público, de su reinvención, reformulación o relegitimación: el arte y las instituciones artísticas, ¿tienen que ser parte de "lo político" o convertirse en instrumentos del mercado y los políticos?
Hegemonía y estrategia socialista : hacia una radicalización de la democracia by Ernesto Laclau( Book )

24 editions published between 1987 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El hilo conductor de Hegemonia y estrategia socialista es una propuesta de política democrática sin restricciones que sirva de base de una estrategia socialista: la búsqueda de la articulación de un conjunto de demandas sociales progresista para crear un sujeto democrático colectivo capaz de impulsar un modelo alternativo de sociedad. Esta articulación supone una ruptura provocativa con las anteriores formas de pensar lo político, al menos desde dos perspectivas. En primer lugar los autores reivindican una interpretación lingüística, discursiva, de la realidad social, desde una concepción epistemológica influenciada por las teorías del último Wittgenstein y por las de Derrida. En segundo lugar pretende un proyecto de análisis de la realidad social posmarxiano, en sentido de haber abandonado la lógica clasista (el reduccionismo de clase) que en las interpretaciones usuales de Marx equipara la dinámica del conflicto social a la lucha de clases
