This chapter discusses the ways that community is presented in both modern political philosophy and literary criticism. It argues that a community-based discussion of literature that includes ideas from nationalist and regional discourses is a relevant step for considering the literary depictions of identity. It also determines that the range of Brown's work and the variety of philosophical viewpoints where these works are compared shows that Brown is, in reality, a major thinker of community.

Keywords: community; political philosophy; literary criticism; community-based discussion; literary depictions; identity; philosophical viewpoints
