Read Crisis as a trigger for new ways of thinking about politics here.

This volume explores the complex theme of crisis in European political thought from antiquity to the twenty-first century. It investigates the innovations in political thought that sprang from crisis, as well as the conceptual challenges thinkers faced when dealing with the devastation wrought by spiritual, economic and political crises. In so doing, Crisis and Renewal also examines the ways in which crisis often became the site of renewal. As an object of theoretical reflection, and as a pivotal element of our vocabulary, the notion of crisis is often applied, indiscriminately and without clarity, to a huge variety of domains.This volume provides a historically informed analysis of what itmeans to reflect on and theorise about crisis.

“Si tratta di un volume di grande interesse, che indaga uno di quei concetti fondamentali del pensiero politico occidentale, il cui uso – e abuso – ne ha spesso consunto e compromesso l’efficacia ermeneutica. […] Data la complessità dell’oggetto e le sue molteplici variazioni di significato, il volume ospita contributi di studiosi di diversa provenienza geografica, i quali declinano il tema attraverso una pluralità di approcci metodologici, che tuttavia non compromettono la coralità e la coerenza del risultato scientifico” - Pietro Sebastianelli, in: Storia del pensiero politico 1/2023, p. 152
