Discourse Theory in European Politics by David R. Howarth

Book Description

This volume of essays employs discourse theory to analyze mainstream topics in contemporary European politics. Inspired by developments in post-structuralist, psychoanalytic and post-Marxist theory, each contributor problematizes a central issue in European governance, including European security, Third Way politics, constitutional and administrative reform, new forms of nationalism and populism, the shift from welfare to workfare, environmental politics and local government. Alongside these substantive issues, the book tackles questions raised by the difficulties of applying discourse theory to empirical cases.

Poststructuralism and After by David R. Howarth Poststructuralism and After, Hardback (October 2013)

This book articulates the key theoretical assumptions of poststructuralism, but also probes its limits, evaluates rival approaches and elaborates new concepts. Building on the work of Derrida, Foucault, Heidegger, Lacan, Laclau, Levi-Strauss, Marx, Saussure and Zizek, the book also provides a distinctive version of the poststructuralist project.

Discourse Theory and Political Analysis by David R. Howarth Discourse Theory and Political Analysis, Paperback (August 2000)

Drawing inspiration from the works of those such as Jacques Derrida, Michael Foucault and Jacques Lacan, the contributors address particular questions using a common theoretical language. The book concludes with an assessment of the future directions of discourse theory in the social sciences.
