    Agency in the discursive condition.Elizabeth Deeds Ermarth - 2001 - History and Theory 40 (4):34–58.
    This article claims that postmodernity necessarily, and perhaps opportunely, undermines the bases upon which political democracy traditionally has rested; and that therefore some significant work must be done in order to redefine, restore, or otherwise reconfigure democratic values and institutions for a changed cultural condition.
