The Practical Turn in Political Theory

First Edition

Eva Erman and Niklas Möller

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • An in-depth treatment of an extremely timely topic given the lively contestations in the five scrutinised debates with regard to how the relationship between social and political practices and normative political principles best should be understood
  • Embraces a comprehensive approach to the fundamental question of how social and political practices constrain normative political principles of different kinds
  • Critically assesses arguments for different kinds of constraints in current debates - e.g. linguistic constraints, methodological constraints, epistemological constraints and political constraints
