About this title

Synopsis:

Winner of the 1990 Foundations of Political Theory Section of the American Political Science Association "First Book Award"

Now available in paperback with a new preface by the author, this award-winning book breaks new ground by challenging traditional concepts of community in political theory. William Corlett brings the diverse (and sometimes contradictory) work of Foucault and Derrida to bear on the thought of Pocock, Burke, Lincoln, and McIntyre, among others, to move beyond the conventional dichotomy of "individual vs. community," arguing instead that community is best advanced within a politics of difference.

From the Back Cover:

"In "Community Without Unity," Corlett engages those texts which appear to be the most resistant to communitarian uses and finds ways to draw sustenance from them for a defense of community. . . . Corlett thinks creatively about time and temporality and the ways implicit assumptions about time compromise or attentuate explicit themes offered by thinkers such as Foucault and Pocock; demarcates the contemporary literature on community and its criticisms; explores in a very productive way strategies of public reassurance governing the thought of Lincoln and Burke; and examines a complex debate between Foucault and Derrida."--William Connolly, Johns Hopkins University
