Frogs' Legs, Shared Ends and the Rationality of Politics
Tags Philosophy and MethodologyPolitical Theory
Politics asks “What is to be done?” and proposes a profusion of answers. Philosophy, when set to contend with politics, asks “when can one sensibly say that something, or for that matter anything, is to be done?” That answers to this question are neither wholly formal, logical and semantic, nor wholly empirical and technological, but both, and more than either, is, I think, plain enough.
