Abstract [en]

Stefan Jonsson argues that democracy and dialogue are interrelatedterms that take on different meanings with the shift of context. Hence, he choosesto use them as “processual forms of thought and action” helpful in casting light onthe discussion of non-Western notions of universalism, collective political action,and issues of multiculturalism in Western societies. He also brings to the forethe question of democratic and dialogic subjects as subjects “without qualities,”potentially open to multiplicity and otherness. This normative idea, he argues, isreadily found in aesthetic representations.
