Owen, David (1999) Political philosophy in a post-imperial voice Economy and Society, 28, (4), pp. 520-549. (doi:10.1080/03085149900000016).

Record type: Article


This essay analyses Tully's approach to political philosophy and his arguments concerning the constitutional recognition of cultural diversity. It contextualizes Tully's approach within a discussion of Wittgenstein, showing how this approach illustrates and overcomes the limitations of analytic approaches to political philosophy. It then turns to show how this approach elucidates the character and significance of struggles for cultural recognition. The essay considers the form of civic education exemplified by this approach and some possible criticisms of Tully's arguments, before concluding with a set of reflections on the tone of political philosophy.
