The second volume of MCAS's new book series "Maimonides Library for Philosophy and Religion" is out in print: Cedric Cohen Skalli and Libera Pisano ed. Skepsis and Antipolitics: The Alternative of Gustav Landauer
Gustav Landauer was an unconventional anarchist who aspired to a return to a communal life. His antipolitical rejection of authoritarian assumptions is based on a radical linguistic scepticism that could be considered the theoretical premise of his anarchism. The present volume aims to add to the existing scholarship on Landauer by shedding new light on his work, focussing on the two interrelated notions of skepsis and antipolitics. In a time marked by a deep doubt concerning modern politics, Landauer’s alternative can help us to more seriously address the struggle for a different articulation of our communitarian and ecological needs.
