Abstract

The articles in this volume deal with the role of Christianity in the definition of European identity. Europeans often identify advanced civilizations with secularity.

Abstract

Die Frage nach den Möglichkeitsbedingungen und motivationalen Ressourcen von Demokratie scheint heute aktueller denn je. Der vorliegende Band stellt sich dieser Frage und erkundet Perspektiven einer umfassenden Demokratisierung von Gesellschaft. Die Autoren beziehen sich dabei - teils zustimmend, teils kritisch - auf die Positionen eines radikaldemokratischen Diskurses (E. Laclau, Ch. Mouffe, J. Derrida, J. Rancière et al.), der sich gegenwärtig darum bemüht, das Politische und die Demokratie jenseits der etablierten Pfade klassischer politischer Theorien neu zu denken. Damit verbunden ist das übergreifende Anliegen der Beiträger, das Politische, das als Kraft einer demokratischen Selbstinstituierung von Gesellschaft verstanden wird, gegen die zunehmende Ökonomisierung aller Lebensbereiche zu verteidigen.
