In this ambitious and original book, Richard Schmitt moves beyond the current dominant modernist assumption that human beings are essentially separate from one another. In so doing, he provides an understanding of how we can be in some ways autonomous beings with individual rights and at the same time essentially social beings who can be understood only in terms of our social relations.
