Political Responsibility

Chapter 6, “Political Ethic, Violence, and Defeat,” formulates the most significant lineaments of a political ethic of responsibility, and argue for the need to recast responsibility politically, as the need to respond to contemporary predicaments of power. The argument is situated within the tradition of political ethic (poliética) found in the writings of Bertolt Brecht, Antonio Gramsci, Niccolò Machiavelli, Max Weber, and Simone Weil, each of whom sought to respond to violent predicaments of power.

Keywords:   Brecht, Gramsci, Machiavelli, Weber, Weil
