New in Le foucaldien: German review article on Steffen Herrmann and Matthias Flatscher's "Institutionen des Politischen" (2020) by Burkhard Liebsch

This essay reviews Steffen Herrmann and Matthias Flatscher's edited volume Institutionen des Politischen: Perspektiven der radikalen Demokratietheorie (2020) with respect to the history of the distinction of politics and the political as well as to democratic forms of life that require resistance against anti-democratic misuse of political institutions. Finally, the article discusses how identification with such forms of life is possible so that any identitarian occupation of the question of who we are is defied.
