        The Democratic Paradox (Radical Thinkers)

        Chantal Mouffe

        Verso 2009

        ISBN 9781844673551

      1. Mouffe’s analysis of consensus-loving, contradiction-ridden modern liberal democracy, in which she takes on the work of prominent theorists of the democratic sphere such as John Rawls and Jürgen Habermas. Her proposition for radical democracy and the development of ‘agonistic pluralism’ is bolstered by references to Jacques Derrida and Carl Schmitt.
