This is the first single-authored book in any language devoted entirely to the thought of Jacques Ranciere. It focuses on his central political idea that a democratic politics emerges from the presupposition of equality. Todd May examines and extends this presupposition, offering a framework for understanding it, placing it in the current political context, and showing how it challenges traditional political philosophy and opens up neglected political paths.May aims to show that Ranciere's view offers both hope and perspective for those who seek to think about and engage in progressive political action.
