"When social power is conceived in Foucauldian terms, it is notoriously difficult to grapple with what it means to think affirmatively about ethical-political action. Drawing upon the unlikely combination of Hannah Arendt and the early 17th-century Quaker movement, Orlie articulates a fascinating approach to this problem. Without forgetting for a moment our enmeshment in power, she nevertheless shows how better appreciating our spiritual capacity for 'natality' can engender a distinctive sense of responsibility and freedom."―Stephen K. White, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University"A thoughtful and erudite meditation on our ethical and political possibilities in the time after Truth."―Wendy Brown, University of California, Santa Cruz"Living Ethically, Acting Politically confronts our ordinary complicities in the operations of social power with the possibility of doing otherwise. Refusing the legislative imaginary of sovereignty, Melissa A. Orlie draws innovatively on Arendt, Foucault, and early modern Quakers to rescue the 'can' from the jaws of the 'ought'―not to escape obligations but to recollect their generation in the contingencies and equivocalities of social practices. At once evocative and provoking, this work opens new terrain at the borderlines of politics and ethics."―Kirstie M. McClure, author of Judging Rights: Lockean Politics and the Limits of Consent

Review:

"The organization of the book is elegant and coherent, and the arguments are well crafted."―Perspectives on Political Science

"Orlie's analysis of responsibility and agency is subtle and complex. . . A challenging and instructive account of the modern crisis of citizenship."―Marcia L. Homiak, Signs, Spring 2001

"Orlie uses the theories of Hobbes, Arendt, and Foucault to spell out her own independent understanding of oppression and resistance, of responsibility and helplessness. The book builds hope on a foundation of subtlety and candor."―George Kateb
