In this lecture, renowned political philosopher Chantal Mouffe continues her exploration of agonistics and discusses different models of radical politics. Engaging with the work of Michael Hardt, Antonio Negri and Paulo Virno and examining the signification of the recent protest movements like Occupy, Mouffe highlights the value of political conflict—from the construction of public spaces where dissenting "points of view are confronted without any possibility of a final reconciliation" to the role of artists as organic intellectuals today—in reshaping the institutions of liberal democracy.
Agonistics: Thinking the World Politically will be available for purchase by Book Culture.
The event is co-sponsored by the School of the Arts.
