Towards an Improper Politics
By (author) Mark Devenney
Argues that democratic politics is improper in enacting equality against property and propriety This book systematically introduces the idea of an improper politics, and characterises democratic politics as improper in a challenge to the proper bounds of reason, accepted behaviours and the policing of proper order. Mark Devenney contributes a conceptual vocabulary that engages with the politics of the proper, propriety and property from a post-foundational perspective. He argues that this triad is central to understanding the maintenance of global inequality, both economic and political.
Mark Devenney is Principal Lecturer in Politics and Philosophy and Co-Director of the Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics and Ethics at the University of Brighton.
