About the Author

Christoph Menke is Professor of Philosophy at the Goethe University, Frankfurt.


"With Menke's brilliant book, the entire problem of bourgeois rights appears in a new light. Menke concentrates on their form to reveal the depoliticized and depowering social ontology that this form encodes. More extraordinary still, Menke identifies an alternate form that would escape this predicament and resecure rights as emancipatory."
Wendy Brown, University of California, Berkeley

"An original and fresh critical analysis of the origins, distinctive character, and paradoxes of the modern theories of right and law. Menke combines historical nuance with systematic rigor in his critique of rights - especially as it pertains to political equality. A must read for anyone interested in probing the meaning and limitations of modern conceptions of right, law, and political community."
Richard J. Bernstein, Vera List Professor of Philosophy, New School for Social Research
