Show Summary Details


The concept domination, despite its widespread employment in contemporary political and social theory, has so far escaped sustained, rigorous analysis. Chapter 1 aims to redress this lacuna. The connection between this project and the work of civic republicans such as Philip Pettit is discussed in this chapter. This chapter is envisioned as supporting a civic republican alternative to the standard liberal contractualist political doctrine. The methodological importance of the so‐called separation thesis to the project is also considered.

Keywords: domination; liberal contractualism; civic republicanism; separation thesis
