Summary
"This posthumous collection of interviews and occasional papers given by Castoriadis between 1974 and 1997 is a lively, direct introduction to the thinking of a writer who never abandoned his radically critical stance. It provides a clear, handy resume of his political ideas, in advance of their times and profoundly relevant to today's world." "For this political thinker and longtime militant (co-founder with Claude Lefort of the revolutionary group "Socialisme au Barbarie"), economist, psychoanalyst, and philosopher, two endless interrogationshow to understand the world and life in society - were intertwined with his own life and combats." "Castoriadis constantly returns to the question of democracy as the never-finished, deliberate creation by the people of societal institutions, analyzing its past and its future in the Western world. He scathingly criticizes "representative" democracy and develops a conception of direct democracy extending to all spheres of social life."--BOOK JACKET
