Description

False necessity is the central work in the three-volume series Politics. It presents both a way of explaining society and a program for changing it. The explanation develops a radical alternative to Marxism, showing how we can account for established social arrangements without denying their contingency or our freedom. The program offers a progressive alternative to the now-dominant ideological conceptions of neoliberalism and social democracy: a set of institutional innovations that would democratize markets, deepen democracy and empower individuals.

Author Biography

Widely regarded as one of the world's leading social and political thinkers, Roberto Mangabeira Unger is Professor of Law at Harvard University and active in Brazilian politics. With Verso he has published What Should Legal Analysis Become?, Politics: The Central Texts and Democracy Realized: The Progressive Alternative.
