Abstract

This is a new approach to one of the greatest political theorists, Antonio Gramsci. Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks are one of the most popular Marxist texts available and continue to inspire readers across the world. Here, Michele Filippini proposes a new approach based on the analysis of previously ignored concepts in his works, creating a book which stands apart.Including chapters on ideology, the individual, collective organisms, society, crisis and temporality, Using Gramsci offers a new pattern in Gramscian studies aimed to speak to the broader audience of social sciences scholars beyond the field of political theory and Marxism, while remaining firmly rooted in his writings. Working from the original Italian texts, Filippini also examines the more traditional areas of Gramsci’s thought, including hegemony, organic intellectuals and civil society.This book will be perfect for all scholars and students of Gramsci’s thought.

Abstract

Die Politische Theorie ist gegenwärtig und nicht zuletzt in Reaktion auf veränderte gesellschaftliche Verhältnisse durch eine angeregte Diskussion über das Politische geprägt. Brigitte Bargetz greift diese aktuellen Debatten auf und schlägt mit dem Konzept des Alltags einen neuen Weg vor, das Politische zu denken: Im Anschluss an Henri Lefebvre, Agnes Heller und Lawrence Grossberg entwirft sie eine vielschichtige politische Theorie des Alltags, die es ermöglicht, Alltag als ambivalenten politischen Kampfplatz zwischen Herrschaft und Widerstand zu fassen, der den Ausgangspunkt für eine praxisorientierte Theorie des Politischen auch jenseits des Staates bildet.

Abstract

The study of war in all periods of prehistory and recorded history has always commanded the attention of historians, dramatists, poets and artists. The study of peace has, however, not yet gained a comparable readership, and the subject is attracting an increasing amount of scholarly research.This volume presents the first work of academic research to tackle this imbalance head on. It looks at war and peace through the ages, from the Classical world through to the 18th century. It considers the nature and advocacy of war and peace both from an historical perspective but also a philosophical one, particularly looking at how universal peace, which began as a personal philosophy, became over the centuries a political philosophy that underpins much of modern society’s attitudes towards warfare and militarism.

Abstract

This book is a philosophical analysis of the ethical treatment of refugees and stateless people, a group of people who, though extremely important politically, have been greatly under theorized philosophically. The limited philosophical discussion of refugees by philosophers focuses narrowly on the question of whether or not we, as members of Western states, have moral obligations to admit refugees into our countries. This book reframes this debate and shows why it is important to think ethically about people who will never be resettled and who live for prolonged periods outside of all political communities. Parekh shows why philosophers ought to be concerned with ethical norms that will help stateless people mitigate the harms of statelessness even while they remain formally excluded from states.
