recovering a shared world
in: Oxford scholarship online
The concept of post-liberalism, as outlined in this book, involves neither the denial of genuine freedom nor the endorsement of illiberal collectivism or nationalism. Instead, author Fred Dallmayr finds a path beyond atomistic selfishness or narcissism and collectivist populism in the direction of a shared, interhuman space or world. In addition to charting this path, he wrestles with other forms of relationality: between local and global concerns; between secular reason and faith or spirituality; and between concrete particularism and 'world maintenance.'
