Community Without Unity : A Politics of Derridian Extravagance, Hardback Book

Community Without Unity : A Politics of Derridian Extravagance Hardback

Part of the Post-Contemporary Interventions series


Winner of the 1990 Foundations of Political Theory Section of the American Political Science Association "First Book Award"Now available in paperback with a new preface by the author, this award-winning book breaks new ground by challenging traditional concepts of community in political theory.

William Corlett brings the diverse (and sometimes contradictory) work of Foucault and Derrida to bear on the thought of Pocock, Burke, Lincoln, and McIntyre, among others, to move beyond the conventional dichotomy of "individual vs. community," arguing instead that community is best advanced within a politics of difference.
