Ten Thoughts about Politics

Politics, democracy, responsibility, myth, deed, word, evil, West, community, violence: these are the keywords of the Western philosophical and political tradition which inspire Roberto Esposito's meditations in this book. The author submits each of these "strong" terms to careful analysis with the goal of showing its layers of meaning and explaining its current set of semantic implications. Through an effective mixture of different languages, authors, and themes - involving literature, aesthetics, theology, philosophy and anthropology - Esposito offers the reader a sophisticated text that redefines modernity's conceptual structure.

Roberto Esposito teaches Theoretical Philosophy at the Italian Institute of Human Sciences.
