About the Author

Ronald Beiner is professor of political science at the University of Toronto. Jennifer Nedelsky is professor of political science and women's studies at the University of Toronto.


Beiner and Nedelsky have put togther a fine volume that is a must-read for anyone interested in the problem of judgment. We make judgments every day in law, culture, and politics. And yet, in late modern plural societies it is harder than ever to account for those judgments. Why are they not mere expressions of the institutional power held by judges, critics, or statesmen? Taking Kant and Arendt as their points of departure, the essays in this timely and valuable volume answer that question by exploring the conditions and aspirations of judgment in late modernity. -- Bonnie Honig, Northwestern University This lively volume offers much to readers interested in Arendt and the faculty of judgment. * CHOICE * A valuable scholarly resource: this volume collects, for the first time, the most important essays on judgment written in the last half century. With a clear, thorough, and very helpful introduction by Ronald Beiner and Jennifer Nedelsky. -- Samuel Fleischacker, University of Illinois, Chicago This collection on Arendt's work is to be welcomed as a a scholarly and pedagogical tool. Beiner and Nedelsky have collected many probing essays that might otherwise be overlooked. And having all of these essays together allows one to easily see the sweep of issues that is entailed by Arendt's thoughts on judgment. * Philosophy in Review *
