Beyond Postmodern Politics by Honi Fern Haber

In this book, Honi Haber offers a much-needed analysis of postmodern politics. While continuing to work towards the voicing of the other, she argues that we must go beyond the insights of postmodernism to arrive at a viable political theory. Postmodernisms political agenda allows the marginalized other to have a voice and to constitute a politics of difference based upon heterogeneity. But Haber argues that postmodern politics denies us the possibility of selves and community--essential elements to any viable political theory. Haber calls into question the postmodern dichotomy of totality or difference. She argues that the self--which need not be coherent or unchanging--is always already a social entity. The subject must be understood as a subject-in-community, but any subject is constructed by many different communities. The subject whose death has been dictated by postmodern deconstruction is the very subject whose life is necessary for a politics of difference. Haber develops thistheory through a detailed examination of postmodern politics as formulated in the work of Lyotard, Rorty, and Foucault.Beyond Postmodern Politicssuggests that we must use the concept of subjects-in-community in order to move beyond postmodern politics and arrive at a genuinepoliticsof difference.
