Political philosophy for the global age.


Political philosophy for the global age.

Sanchez Flores, Monica Judith.

Palgrave Macmillan


246 pages




Sanchez Flores (Centro Investigacion y Docencia Economicas, Mexico) reviews what she considers the most important positions in the current debate on political theory--liberalism, communitarianism, feminism, and postcolonialism--and proposes her own contribution to critique a type of morality formulated solely on the basis of the Judeo-Christian perspective, in which history and autonomous individuality are ascendant. Although they cannot be dispensed with in global interactions, she argues, history and individuality should be seen as ideals that emanate culturally from Europe, and not as essential aspects of universal humanity.
