Ethical Politics Home Page

“Ethical Politics” began as a somewhat intellectual discussion group around fundamental questions of radical politics, principles of justice, subjectivity, and normative and moral-psychological aspects affecting public political discourse and action. Currently, it aims to provide a resource for a network of writers and activists, inside and outside the academy, working over problems of social justice, ethics and political theory.
