#event The Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy is pleased to welcome Chantal Mouffe, Professor of Political Theory at the Centre for the Study of Democracy at the University of Westminster in London. She will examine the crucial role played in politics by what she call «passions» to refer to the common affects that are at stake in the construction of collective identities.

Taking her bearings from Spinoza, Freud and Wittgenstein and from the agonistic model of democracy that she has elaborated in several of her writings she will scrutinize the nature of our current 'post-democratic' condition and enquire about the affects that need to be mobilized in order to create a collective will able to give a new vigour to the democratic ideals.

She has taught and researched in many universities in Europe, North America and South America and she is a corresponding member of the Collège International de Philosophie in Paris.
