Om boka

Alessandro Ferrara's views are quite distinctive. There is really no one else in contemporary philosophy who takes up the position of 'exemplary universalism' that he does. It is a position that has some Italian precedents, in particular the work of Luigi Pareyson in the first half of the twentieth century. It also has affinities to Hannah Arendt's theory of political judgment. Yet Ferrara is very much his own person, and a new book by him, extending his views into new domains, is certainly to be welcomed. -- Charles Larmore, W. Duncan MacMillan Family Professor in the Humanities and professor of philosophy, Brown University No one has been more energetic or more resourceful than Alessandro Ferrara in enhancing Hannah Arendt's thoughts about judgment and exemplarity. Ferrara is intent on elevating judgment to a new intellectual paradigm, and he draws on an impressive array of sources in contemporary theory in pursuing this ambitious project. -- Ronald Beiner, University of Toronto
