About This Book

Equality is not something that we must expect from state institutions. It is something that we must both presuppose and create through collective action. Todd May investigates in depth the philosophical grounds, ethical implications and practical consequences of the view of active equality. Much more than a commentary, his book is a powerful analysis of what politics means and how we can recover the project of political action.Jacques RanciereThis is the first single-authored book in any language devoted entirely to the thought of Jacques Rancière.
