About the Author
This book is an antidote to the growing specialisation of political theory. It disrupts the canonical ideal theories of justice by presenting justice as ‘becoming-justice’, a productive desire that simply cannot be satisfied. In this fascinating journey on the multi-dimensionality of justice, we meet new materialists, non-hierarchical struggles such as the Occupy movement, the Indignados, anti-fascist movements, as well as historical examples.

A witty and thought-provoking book, Sotiropoulous’ A Materialist Theory of Justice is a call-to-arms for those whose thirst for theorising our contemporary social condition has not yet been quenched. Navigating skillfully through the history of philosophy, popular culture and political crises, this book proposes a novel reflection on the future of justice from a politically engaged and engaging perspective.
