Annual Project 2019-2020: Politics between Utopia and a Troubled World

Politics between Utopia and a Troubled World

Some interest in political philosophy is theoretical and deep: It engages general, perhaps to an extent abstract questions, and is for the most part indifferent to factual circumstances and turns of events. Another kind of interest in political philosophy is more involved: It is an attempt to reflect (normatively or otherwise) on momentous and consequential developments, and is as such heavily sensitive to political contingencies.
