Abstract

In this contribution I will focus my critical attention on a single issue among the many raised by Alessandro Ferrara’’s latest book . There are reasons to think, however, that the importance of this theme is absolutely central for the success of his theoretical project. The plan of the essay is as follows: the first section attempts to state more clearly the nature of the problem and its relevance for political theory; in the second section the solution offered by Ferrara is analyzed in some details; in the third section I present some worries that, in my opinion, afflict Ferrara’’s response to the problem; finally, in the last section, I consider an alternative way of resolving, or rather dissolving, the problem of the universality of political judgement
