Between Specters of War and Visions of Peace

Dialogic Political Theory and the Challenges of Politics

Gerald M. Mara

  • Challenges the verdict that "premodern" or "metaphysical" texts cannot speak to modern and postmodern societies, as well as the insistence that all forms of political theory be some form of democratic theory
  • Provides a democratic justification for moving beyond democratic theory
  • Argues for a style of political theory committed to questioning not closure
