New Proposals for New Questions
Nuevas propuestas para nuevas cuestiones
In six sections, the volume deals with different questions of political philosophy. The first section focuses on democratic theories, the second on conceptual debates, discussing topics such as collective rights, the terrorist phenomenon, Libertarianism and conceptions of freedom.
In a third section on contemporary debates, perspectives on sovereignity and legitimacy as well as discourse theory versus political liberalism are discussed.
The volume also features essays on democracy and law, and in a section entitled “Judicial construction of democracy” papers on constitutional reviews by judges in the Netherlands as well as the construction of democracy in the context of Latin-American democracies.
Finally, in the last section the volume deals with the European Constitutional Treatise, analysing the arguments and examining the legitimacy crisis and the main objections displayed against this treatise.
