    American Caudillo: Princely Performative Populism and Democracy in the Americas.Diego von Vacano - 2019 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 45 (4):413-428.
    Populism is on the rise throughout the world and it poses a challenge to democratic theory. Conventional political thought has not dealt seriously with this challenge throughout most of its history. The article takes the challenge seriously, underscoring the rise of Donald Trump as an example of populism. I argue that dominant paradigms in the study of the history of political thought and in normative, Rawlsian approaches do not elucidate populism. I argue that we need to look beyond the mainstream (...)

    The Form of Freedom in Plato's Laws: An Interpretation.Diego von Vacano - 2012 - Theoria: A Journal of Social and Political Theory 59 (132):45-59.
    The article argues that Plato's Laws contain an implicit conception of freedom, particularly in Book III. It proposes that, while the concept is not treated systematically by Plato, it merits attention due to its presence in the text. I argue that there is a Form of Freedom in the book. It is comprised of two dimensions: an organic and a civic component. They are mediated by human agency. However, freedom in its ideal form is only possible for a select intellectual (...)

    Las Casas and the Birth of Race.Diego von Vacano - 2012 - History of Political Thought 33 (3):401-426.
    One of the central problems of modernity has been the role race plays in politics. However, we are still not sure where the concept of race first emerges in the history of political thought. I argue that the first theorist to lay the grounds for a racial conception in politics is the Spanish Dominican friar Bartolomé de Las Casas. In his effort to defend the 'rights' of the Amerindians, Las Casas constructs racial categories through his rhetorical enterprise. Rather than being (...)
