From the Publisher"Brunkhorst's impressive sweep through the history of the modern concept of solidarity makes the connections we need to understand our twenty-first century, globalized society.
With remarkable breadth of scholarship and striking insights into our present situation, he lays bare the ancient roots of this ideal, shows it to be a constitutive factor in modern democracy, and provides us with an indispensable key to our contemporary conflicts."—Charles Taylor
"Todes's remarkable book takes us a step further in the striving of modern philosophy since Kant to show how our perceiving can be both constrained and free, situated and yet spontaneous and creative. Todes shows how we can resolve this age-old conundrum by understanding the crucial place in all perceiving and thinking of the active material body; this is the great repressed of modern philosophy, whose return, as Todes shows, has important consequences, not only for epistemology, but for ethics and social theory."—Charles Taylor
