Product Overview

Proposing a new political theory for a post-9/11 world, feminist political philosopher Noelle McAfee addresses the root causes of our seemingly endless war on terror and considers the "talking cures" of testimony, such as South Africa''s Truth and Reconciliation Commission and other public deliberations that have helped societies work through, rather than act out, their conflicts. McAfee sees the public sphere as a discursive space that can be understood through the many lenses of semiotics, psychoanalysis, civic republicanism, and American pragmatism. By bringing to bear this breathtaking range of perspectives on the practical problems of individuals who are committed to addressing past atrocities, McAfee show how the quintessentially human desire to participate in a world with others is key to creating a more democratic society.
