Klappentext
The author presents in this volume a synthesis of his long-term studies on the conceptual history of politics. He offers a rhetorical history of the horizons of conceptualizing politics an activity in terms of nine topoi: irregularity, judgment, policy, deliberation, commitment, contestation, possibility, situation and play & game. He both constructs a schema for conceptualization of the spectrum of activities that are called politics and applies it to British, French and German debates on the concept since the nineteenth century.

A New Preface deals with current studies around the concept of `politics' and refers to the possibility of studying its conceptual history through parliamentary debates.

Kari Palonen is Professor of Political Science at the University of Jyväskylä (Finland).
