Leftist Democratic Politics

Abstract

This paper offers an account of leftist democratic politics, one that seeks insights and new possibilities in the confluence of liberalreformist thought and radical democratic post-Marxist thought. An interpretation of the renascent liberalism of John Dewey is compared to the radical democracy of Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe, exposing shared commitments to radical democracy, egalitarianism, and continued struggles to combat the varied intersectional manifestations of subordination. The author argues that this confluence of thought offers a tenable leftist democratic politics, one that remains open to transnational perspectives, critiques, and insights.
