Thinking with Balibar

J. M. Bernstein

Fordham University Press

Argues that Étienne Balibar’s political philosophy innovates a complex constellation of concepts aimed at reviving and renewing the great tradition of radical democracy. Yet, not only is Balibar’s concept of rights the most exorbitant in his conceptual armory, but it is also the conceptual fulcrum on which his political philosophy pivots: without its particular normative insistence, the constellation falls to pieces.

Keywords:   citizenship, civility, constituent power, dignity, insurrection, intensive universality, radical democracy, rights, structural violence, transformation
