Description - A Materialist Theory of Justice: The One, the Many, the Not-Yet by George Sotiropoulos
A Materialist Theory of Justice offers an innovative (re)reading of justice that draws from diverse theoretical currents, tracing in the process an age-old tradition of critical thought. Raising the banner of materialism against idealist conceptions, justice is conceived as a multiple process, which emerges in the dynamic reproduction and interaction of material bodies. Mapping out its presence on non-human fields, justice is then shown to attain in human beings the status of a contentious problem and a productive desire, which is related to the pursuit of a good life and is also determinative of human history.
The theorization enlarges the scope of the notion by incorporating a wide spectrum of phenomena, from animal forms of sociality and activity, to revolution, empire, civil war up to and including the riots that spread out in the world today. In this way, the book also manages to extend beyond the disciplinary boundaries of normative political theory, within which theories of justice are usually logged, and enter a productive discussion with various currents of critical thought.
