Dear Colleague,

TOC: Democratic Theory (Vol. 4, Issue 2)

Dear Colleague,

This issue of Democratic Theory draws together several key contributions to important ongoing debates. The articles offer a critique of the current push to ensure an objective standard of normative truth, a case for polarity as the fundamental structure of politics, an exploration of corporatism in global politics, and of the politics of democratic institutions. An interview and critical commentary follow.

Volume 4, Issue 2

Editorial, Mark Chou and Jean-Paul Gagnon

Theoria: A Journal of Social and Political Theory (Volume 64, Issue 152)

Dear Colleague,

The articles in this issue of Theoria address the many challenges posed by the major forces that shape the contemporary world. One proposes a new interpretation of Kant's contradiction in conception test, while another advances the 'Impossibility Result.' The plausibility of Metz's African moral theory is questioned and the current state of deliberative democracy is examined.
