Democracy to Come

Politics as Relational Praxis

Fred Dallmayr

  • Challenges conventional assumptions about modern democracy and Western political concepts.
  • Rejects the notion that democracy is a stable system that can be universally applied to diverse societies.
  • Provides an understanding of democracy that does not rely solely on Western political concepts, but multi-cultural theorists across time and space.
  • Challenges political theory's preoccupation with Eurocentric conceptualizations of democracy.
  • Develops the groundwork for a twenty-first century vision of democracy -- communities governed by the spirit of equality.
  • Establishes a new understanding of democracy based on a wide array of disciplines, political beliefs, and religious faiths.
  • Critiques liberal democracy and its anchorage in financial capitalism.
