NEW BOOK

People here may like to know of this book on Hegel’s Phenomenology and Foucault’s Genealogy. The book examines these two projects – looks at their commonalities as well as differences -, considers their implications for social and political theory, as well as the philosophy of social sciences.

CFP: First volume of DERECHO y CRÍTICA SOCIAL

Law, whether understood as an institutional organization of life in common or as a rational discourse about the conditions that allow that order, constitutes a viewing point from which we can observe any aspect of society. Similarly, starting from virtually any social event it is possible to draw a line that leads, eventually, towards the legal. The deep interrelation between law and other dimensions of social life dictates, therefore, that the study of the law be conducted from a multidisciplinary perspective. Furthermore, the importance of what is at stake in the relationship between the legal and its social environment requires that this study be undertaken from a critical perspective.

Taming Power in Times of Globalization:

What Role for Human Rights?

 

Monday, 30 November 2015, and Tuesday, 01 December 2015.

Irish Centre for Human Rights

National University of Ireland Galway

Galway, Ireland

 

The ways power is exercised today at the global level seems to be qualitatively different, demanding new responses from international law and other relevant disciplines. In particular, it seems that today the exercise of power at the global level is less controllable, less subject to restraints and checks than some decades ago. Global governance, international or global constitutionalism, legal pluralism are terms indicating some of the ways developed in the scholarship to comprehend, analyse and respond to challenges posed by the contemporary forms of exercise of power at the global level.
