After the first volume on Monisms and Pluralisms in the History of Political Thought, the present work aims at further broadening our reflection on the concepts of monism and pluralism beyond Isaiah Berlin’s popular dichotomy, while being conscious of how powerfully they penetrated into our language and society. With this purpose the authors of the essays here collected addressed a series of social and political models having monist and/or pluralist connotation, while showing how — in historical terms — the ideal connection between pluralism-liberty and monism-lack of it, which is generally taken for granted, becomes more nuanced and problematic. In this sense, the present work wants to show how just the History of social and political models offers us a series of diversified pluralisms and diversified monisms. A kind of achievement which might be useful in our time, characterized by a sort of attitude towards easy generalizations.

Abstract

After the first volume on Monisms and Pluralisms in the History of Political Thought, the present work aims at further broadening our reflection on the concepts of monism and pluralism beyond Isaiah Berlin’s popular dichotomy, while being conscious of how powerfully they penetrated into our language and society. With this purpose the authors of the essays here collected addressed a series of social and political models having monist and/or pluralist connotation, while showing how — in historical terms — the ideal connection between pluralism-liberty and monism-lack of it, which is generally taken for granted, becomes more nuanced and problematic. In this sense, the present work wants to show how just the History of social and political models offers us a series of diversified pluralisms and diversified monisms. A kind of achievement which might be useful in our time, characterized by a sort of attitude towards easy generalizations.
