Lawrence Hamilton argues for the rehabilitation of the concept of human needs as central to politics and political theory. Contemporary political philosophy has focused on issues of justice and welfare, excluding the important issues of political participation, democratic sovereignty, and the satisfaction of human needs, with a deleterious effect on political practice. Hamiltons argument is enhanced throughout by his development of topics such as autonomy, recognition, rights, civil society, liberalism, and democracy.
