Anarchist Critique of Radical Democracy: The Impossible Argument
Department of Economic History, Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden.ORCID iD: 0000-0003-3579-2143
2018 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This book addresses the conflictual nature of radical democracy. By analyzing democratic conflict in Husby, a marginalized Stockholm city district, it exposes democracy’s core division – between governors and governed – as theorized by Jacques Rancière. Tracing the genealogy of that critique, the book interrogates a historical tradition generically adverse to every form of governance, namely anarchism. By outlining the divergent and discontinuous relationship between democracy and anarchy – within the history of anarchist thought – the author adds to democratic theory ‘The Impossible Argument’: a compound anarchist critique of radical democracy.
