The concept of democratic freedom refers to more than the kind of
freedom embodied by political institutions and procedures.
Democratic freedom can only be properly understood if it is grasped
as the expression of a culture of freedom that encompasses an
entire form of life. Juliane Rebentisch's systematic and historical
approach demonstrates that we can learn a great deal about the
democratic culture of freedom from its philosophical critics. From
Plato to Carl Schmitt, the critique of democratic culture has
always been articulated as a critique of its aaestheticization".
Rebentisch defends various phenomena of aestheticization D from the
irony typical of democratic citizens to the theatricality of the
political D as constitutive elements of democratic culture and the
notion of freedom at the heart of its ethical and political
self-conception. This work will be of particular interest to
students of Political Theory, Philosophy and Aesthetics.
