Inhaltsangabe: Political Philosophy: The New Frontiers is a comprehensive overview of the most significant theories and contributions in the field of political philosophy of the last three decades. It is a journey through contemporary political philosophy that puts forward a basic interpretative hypothesis. Mariano Croce and Andrea Salvatore analyse the theories and proposals of many prominent political philosophers and attempt to arrive at the conclusion that today's politics is characterised by a striking reviviscence of groups (whether ethnic, religious, financial, or else) which is profoundly impacting on the role of traditional political institutions, and on the state in particular. Political philosophers discussed include Giorgio Agamben, Zygmunt Bauman, Mark Goodale, Martha Nussbaum, Charles Taylor, Slavoj Zizek and many others. Political Philosophy: The New Frontiers also devotes attention to elements that are crucial to a sound analysis of contemporary politics, both at a national and at a global level, such as the law and the transformation of the legal practice and a socio-anthropological analysis of globalisation. It is an exhaustive picture of the debates and discussions in the field of political philosophy in a captivating way, which leads the reader to an informed global understanding of the field, but also to reflect on some vital issues that directly affect their everyday life.
Inhaltsangabe: Undoing Ties claims to offer an answer to the question of what happens when the ties between traditional political institutions and citizens are being undone. The basic aim of the book is to offer an introductory and accessible overview of those paradigms and theories that are specifically concerned with the irreducible plurality of life forms and seek to understand how this challenge should be faced. The authors adopt an interdisciplinary approach to foreground how scholars in different areas (such as political philosophy, jurisprudence, sociology and anthropology) deal with one of the key characterizing elements of today's political scenario, that is to say, the reviviscence of sub-state and supra-state groups as crucial political actors vis-Á -vis the state.
