Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



This paper examines the political aesthetic of Hannah Arendt and Jacques Rancière who, in their own ways, found resources in an innovative reading of Kant’s Critique of Judgement. The paper explores the Kantian legacy in the political understanding of these two thinkers. It then focuses on Rancière’s notion of dissensus, and argues that his politics shares the aesthetic features associated with the Kantian sublime.
