By Louiza Odysseos
In this pioneering e-book, Louiza Odysseos argues that debates approximately ethnic clash, human rights, and the viability of multicultural groups all revolve round the query of coexistence. but, problems with coexistence haven't been competently addressed by way of diplomacy. rather than being considered as a question, “coexistence” is a time period whose that means is taken into account self-evident.
The topic of Coexistence lines the institutional forget of coexistence to the ontological commitments of diplomacy as a contemporary social technological know-how predicated on conceptions of recent subjectivity. This reliance ends up in the belief that coexistence skill little greater than the social and political copresence of people, a premise that occludes the jobs of otherness within the structure of the self. Countering this reliance necessitates the exam of ways lifestyles itself is coexistential from the start.
Odysseos opens up the opportunity of a coexistential ontology, drawing on Martin Heidegger and his interlocutors, within which selfhood could be rethought past subjectivism, reinstating coexistence as a question for worldwide politics—away from the restrictive discursive parameters of the trendy subject.
Louiza Odysseos is senior lecturer in diplomacy on the college of Sussex.
