About the Author

Antonio Y. Vazquez-Arroyo is an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Rutgers University-Newark.


What is a distinctly political ethic, one responsive to the unique properties of action and power in setting the terms of collective life? What is a radical democratic ethic, one contoured to substantive equality and power sharing? In this original study, Antonio Y. Vazquez-Arroyo probes every dimension of these timely questions. By turns exquisitely subtle and ardently polemical, Political Responsibility restores political theory's promise of worldly illumination. -- Wendy Brown, University of California, Berkeley
Remarkably erudite and conceptually lucid, Political Responsibility scrutinizes the complex relationship that, from Machiavelli to Adorno, binds ethics with politics. Antonio Y. Vazquez-Arroyo unveils the upshots of the 'ethical turn' that has shaped the humanities in the last decades: a depoliticized fetishism of human rights combined with the actual accommodation to the individualistic ethos of neoliberalism. His plea for a political responsibility rooted on commonality and oriented towards collective action is as convincing as it is refreshing. -- Enzo Traverso, Cornell University
A sweeping work of integrative intellectual history, Political Responsibility is a major book in every sense-in the topic it takes on, in its range of reference, and above all in its ambition. It is certain to be a reference point for those debating the future of the field. -- James Ingram, McMaster University
Political Responsibility provides us with a conceptual vocabulary to discern the differences between these two projects, but their historical co-emergence in the aftermath of socialism requires further reflection. -- Adom Getachew * Theory & Event *
