Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Notes that John Dewey committed to the construction of an "elastic" social imaginary responsive to the rhetorical needs of a public in crisis. Explains that Dewey argued that a new third party must adopt an agonistic style of communication. Suggests that Dewey described the role of a third party in ways that might prove productive for scholars interested in the intersections between third party politics and counterpublicity. (PM)
