Political Theory and the Displacement of Politics by Bonnie Honig
Book DescriptionIn this book, Bonnie Honig rethinks that established relation between politics and political theory. From liberal to communitarian to republican, political theorists of opposing positions often treat political theory less as an exploration of politics than as a series of devices of its displacement. Honig characterizes Kant, Rawls, and Sandel as virtue theorists of politics, arguing that they rely on principles of right, rationality, community, and law to protect their political theories from the conflict and uncertainty of political reality. Drawing on Nietzsche and Arendt, as well as Machiavelli and Derrida, Honig explores an alternative politics of virtu, which treats the disruptions of political order as valued sites of democratic freedom and individuality.

Books By Author Bonnie Honig
Politics, Theory, and Film, Hardback (November 2016)
The disturbing and intense films of Lars von Trier are often dismissed as misogynist, misanthropic, or anti-humanist. This book, however, invites us to engage with his work to found a new feminist vision and discover what might be distinctively hopeful for the future of our fragile human condition.
Antigone, Interrupted, Paperback (May 2013)
A new interpretation of Sophocles' Antigone, exploring the intertwined history of law, politics, gender and humanism.
Emergency Politics, Paperback (August 2011)
Looking at how emergencies in the past and present have shaped the development of democracy, the author argues that democracies must resist emergency's pull to focus on life's necessities (food, security, and bare essentials) because these tend to privatize and isolate citizens rather than bring us together on behalf of hopeful futures.
