About this book

Politics without Reason explores the roots of contemporary hostility toward liberalism. The thesis of the book is that ambivalence about the self and about desire as an expression of the self fosters the intense animosity we observe directed toward the liberal ideal.

Reviews

"This current experience of uncertainty has led to splitting and polarization at the national political level.Thisresults in both the Republican and Democratic parties being used as the 'other'. Each party becomesthe sole bad object for the other.In exploring and seeking to understand something of the irrationality behind such splitting this timely, reflective volume provides us with a valuable explanation of current political dynamics in America." - Lionel F Stapley, author of Globalisation and Terrorism: Death of a Way of Life
