    The Paradox of Emancipation: Populism, Democracy and the Soul of the Left.Albena Azmanova - 2019 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 45 (9-10):1186-1207.
    What is the connection between the surge of populism and the deflation of electoral support to traditional left-leaning ideological positions? How can we explain the downfall of the Left in conditions that should be propelling it to power? In its reaction both to the neo-liberal hegemony and to the rise of populism, I claim that the Left is afflicted by what Nietzsche called ‘a democratic prejudice’ – the reflex of reading history as the advent of democracy and its crisis. As (...)

    The Populist Catharsis: On the Revival of the Political.Albena Azmanova - 2018 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 44 (4):399-411.
    I argue that populism is not the cause of the erosion of diversity capital in contemporary democracies, it is its outcome. Focusing on the process of politicization of the social grievances articulated by populist parties and movements, I offer a diagnosis of the state of the political in contemporary democracies, in order to discern populism’s capacity to reboot democratic politics.

    The Right to Politics and Republican Non-Domination.Albena Azmanova - 2016 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 42 (4-5):465-475.
    Against pronouncements of the recent demise of both democracy and the political, I maintain that there is, rather, something amiss with the process of politicization in which social grievances are translated into matters of political concern and become objects of policy-making. I therefore propose to seek an antidote to the de-politicizing tendencies of our age by reanimating the mechanism that transmits social conflicts and grievances into politics. To that purpose, I formulate the notion of a ‘fundamental right to politics’ as (...)

  13. What is Enlightenment?: Continuity or Rupture in the Wake of the Arab Uprisings.Mohammed D. Cherkaoui, Hani Albasoos, Albena Azmanova, Brian Calfano, John Entelis, Azza Karam, Richard Rubenstein, Solon Simmons & Radwan Ziadeh - 2016 - Lexington Books.
    This volume examines whether the Arab Uprisings introduce a replica of the European Enlightenment or rather stimulate an Arab/Islamic Awakening with its own cultural specificity and political philosophy. By placing Immanuel Kant in Tahrir Square, Cairo, this book adopts a comparative analysis of two enlightenment projects: one Arab, still under construction, with possible progression toward modernity or regression toward neo-authoritarianism, and one European, shaped by the past two centuries.
