Critical Powers

Ayelet Shachar cover

About the series

Critical Powers is dedicated to constructing dialogues around innovative and original work in social and political theory. The series welcomes work from different philosophical traditions and theoretical orientations, ranging from abstract conceptual argument to concrete policy-relevant engagements, and encourages dialogue across the diverse approaches that populate the field of social and political theory. All of the volumes in the series are structured as dialogues in which a lead essay is greeted with a series of responses, followed by a reply by the lead essayist. Such dialogues spark debate, foster understanding, encourage innovation and perform the drama of thought in a way that engages a wide audience of scholars and students.
