This week we are featuring Political Categories: Thinking Beyond Concepts, by Michael Marder. In this work, Marder proposes a new methodology for political science and philosophy, one which he terms “categorial thinking.” Under this lens, the political appears not as a singular concept but as a family of categories, allowing room for new, plural, and often antagonistic ideas about the state, the people, sovereignty, and power. Check our blog Tuesday and Wednesday for a two-part guest post from Marder, and on Thursday for an excerpt to the book’s preface. For now, fill out the form below for a chance to win a copy of the book. The drawing will close on Friday, May 17 at midnight EST.
The giveaway winner will be contacted by Tuesday, May 21.
