HOPE: new philosophies for change

In this article, I briefly review Mary Zournazi’s book, Hope: New Philosophies for Change. The book is an anthology of interviews that Zournazi conducted. I particularly focus on two interviews. One is Hope, Passion, Politics by Chantal Mouffe and Ernesto Laclau. The other is Joyful Revolt, a conversation with Julia Kristeva.

“A book needed these times more than daily bread.”

You can read the full article and find the links to the free ebook, and the PowerPoint file at Dianoetic.

  1. Thanks for reviewing this book and providing some insights. I love the work of Kristeva and this quote you mention is key for an artist: “Ideally we reach the point where we can tolerate solitude, and it may be that this capacity to tolerate solitude is where creativity comes from.” I look forward to reading more from your blog!
