Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Jardine (political science, Auburn U.) uses his analysis of the human capacity for speech to address the question of how the political community can reestablish a sense of human finitude in the postmodern era. He discusses the ways in which the community can critically judge its own practice and set limits to the actions of its members and what it demands of its members. He argues that good communal narratives provide community members with a sense of place, which ultimately sets limits on individual and collective actions. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
