Summary

"Margins of political discourse" are those border zones where paradigms intersect and where issues of order and disorder, meaning and non-meaning must be continually renegotiated.

Our age is marked by multiple dislocations, by political as well as philosophical paradigm shifts. Politically, a Europe-centered world order has given way to a decentered arena of global power struggles. Philosophically, traditional metaphysics -- itself a European legacy -- is making room for diverse modes of anti-foundationalism. In this situation, philosophy and political theory are bound to be decentered themselves, occupying a peculiar border zone in which traditional boundaries are blurred without being erased. This is the locus of Dallmayr's book.

Located at the intersection of Continental and Anglo-American thought as well as at the border of philosophy and politics, Margins of Political Discourse explores the zone between polis and cosmopolis, between modernity and postmodernity, between reason and contingency, between immanence and transcendence.

Fred Dallmayr is Packey Dee Professor of Government at the University of Notre Dame. He is the author of Beyond Dogma and Dispair, Twilight of Subjectivity, Language and Politics: Why Does Language Matter to Political Philosophy?, Polis and Praxis: Exercises in Contemporary Political Theory, and Critical Encounters: Between Philosophy and Politics.
