Philosophie & Kritik. Beiträge zur politischen Philosophie und Kritischen Theorie

The book series is published by Springer VS. It aims at contributions that differ from the traditional books in practical and political philosophy by understanding themselves to be politically engaged philosophy in a triple sense:

(1) They aim at the political, that is the taken-for-granted concepts that form the basis of our political thinking and acting. The reduce political philosophy neither to reflections of given institutional structures nor to moral philosophy. They are politically engaged philosophy.

(2) They understand political philosophy as a reflection of social practices which is itself part of these practices. Philosophy is neither beyond politics nor history but a historically informed self-understanding of the present and its struggles that strives for emancipation. They are politically engaged philosophy.

(3) Yet the insist on still being politically engaged philosophy: They combine conceptual work with debates from the philosophical tradition and the transformation of our political imagination.
