Statelessness: On Almost Not Existing
Book by Tony C. Brown;
Review by Daniel Sharp
Daniel Sharp of the Department of Philosophy, LMU Munich reviews Statelessness: On Almost Not Existing by Tony C. Brown. This book is about statelessness “in an expanded sense” — about human life without and beyond the state — and how this possibility has been conceptualized in Enlightenment political theory. Brown delves deep into the history of political thought, discussing the role “state thinking” plays in a wide range of important political philosophers. Brown’s discussion will prove interesting to political theorists, as much work remains to be done to understand the impact, and ongoing legacies, of colonialism on European political thought.
