Example text

To almost all non-positivists, the most social science can achieve is our (the social scientists’) understanding – the first level of the hermeneutic – of their (those we study) understanding of their actions and the social world more generally – the second level of the hermeneutic (for an introduction to these issues, see Marsh and Furlong, 2002). We do recognise that most modern positivists acknowledge the critiques of their position and positivism has consequently changed significantly, although much remains the same.

At the same time, most radicals also emphasise the presence of structured inequality in society. So, Barber (1998) argues that corporations dominate government and therefore contemporary capitalist democracies. As such, if government does not act to ensure that they relinquish much of their power, then that will be the end of democracy. In a similar vein, Marxists and materialist, or second-wave (for a brief discussion of second-wave feminism, see Chapter 6), feminists and anti-racists contend that liberals place too much emphasis on individual agency and insufficient focus on the structural constraints that particular groups face.

However, the radical pluralism of Laclau and Mouffe engages directly with issues of citizenship, while seeing it as an ever-changing, contested idea. Mouffe (1993) uses the term ‘agonistic pluralism’ to characterise her conception of politics. It involves: ‘confrontation between adversaries who agree on [ ] the rules of the game while disagreeing not only about substantial, political and moral issues but also about precise interpretation of the rules of the game’ (1993, p. 502). The aim is to advocate an open, continually contested, democracy where difference is axiomatic and there is a thick citizenship.
