Our goal is to explore the contentious relationship between ontology, critique and democratic politics, by simultaneously engaging with recent scholarship on the “ontological turn” in political theory and with reflections around the interface between varieties of critique and democratic agency. The roundtable in Edinburgh will bring together four leading voices in this debate. The workshop in St Andrews involves invited speakers as well as staff from both Edinburgh and St Andrews.
