    Democracy and Complexity: A Realist Approach.Shane Phelan - 1994 - Review of Metaphysics 48 (1):177-179.
    Democratic theory is in need of a new vision. While mainstream American theorists continue their search for an empirically verifiable theory that would legitimate existing Western political orders, European thinkers such as Jurgen Habermas have deeply challenged both the methods and the conclusions of neoclassical democratic theorists such as Schumpeter, Dahl, and Sartori. Zolo enters this debate through an examination of the political consequences of the complexity of modern social systems, arguing that this complexity undermines the premises of all the (...)

    Playing with Fire: Queer Politics, Queer Theories.Shane Phelan (ed.) - 1997 - Routledge.
    The last five years have witnessed the birth of a vibrant new group of young scholars who are writing about queer law, politics, and policy--topics which are no longer treated as of interest only to lesbians and gay men, but which now garner the attention of political theorists of all stripes. Playing With Fire --the first scholarly collection on queer politics by US political theorists--opens the intersection of lesbian and gay studies and political theory to a wide audience. It covers (...)

    The Lines of Reason.Shane Phelan - 2001 - Hypatia 16 (2):75-79.
    : Linda Nicholson's book The Play of Reason: From the Modern to the Postmodern admirably integrates history and philosophy to demonstrate the historical characteristics of reason and arguments in its name. I argue that she nonetheless retains a modernist dependence on the specter of unreason to document the reasonableness of her own positions. This specter continually recreates hegemonic "reasons." Feminist theory, I argue, should confront more fully its continued dependence on the other of reason.

    Coyote Politics: Trickster Tales and Feminist Futures.Shane Phelan - 1996 - Hypatia 11 (3):130 - 149.
    This essay is a first attempt at thinking through the ways in which Native American Coyote stories can illuminate options for lesbian and feminist politics. I follow the metaphors of trickery and shape-shifting common to the stories and recommend the laughter they evoke as we engage in feminist politics and philosophy.
