Skepticism, Individuality and Freedom by Bonnie Honig

Book Description

As one of liberal theory's most important gadflies, Richard Flathman has during the past four decades produced a significant body of work that is iconoclastic, idiosyncratic, and increasingly influential. Flathman criticizes liberal theory's role in justifying a politics of governance that has drifted substantially from liberalism's central commitments to individuality and freedom. It is this challenge, and its implications for the future of liberal theory, that brings together the diverse and distinguished authors of this volume. Topics include the relationships between theory and practice, skepticism and knowledge, individuality and egoism, negative and positive freedom, Hobbes and liberalism, as well as the uneasy connections among liberalism, feminism, and democratic politics.

Books By Author Bonnie Honig

Politics, Theory, and Film by Bonnie Honig Politics, Theory, and Film, Paperback (October 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 by Bonnie Honig Antigone, Interrupted, Hardback (May 2013)

A new interpretation of Sophocles' Antigone, exploring the intertwined history of law, politics, gender and humanism.

Emergency Politics by Bonnie Honig 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.
