The Disclosure of Politics

María Pía Lara

Columbia University Press

The concepts discussed in this book entailed the disclosure of a new way of thinking about politics during the eighteenth century, which transformed the way social agents saw themselves, their experiences, and their future. This process allowed them to imagine concepts such as critique, emancipation, and the political role of civil society as part of negotiating the space between their expectations and their actual political experiences. This chapter returns to this concept of the disclosure of politics to determine where it has taken us. It concludes by arguing that the inadequacy of our conceptual lexicon and dearth of new concepts are proof that we must once again review the relationship between theory and praxis.

Keywords:   secularization, disclosure, politics, social agents, theory, praxis
