About the Author

"Political Anthropology is a compelling and luminous introduction to Helmuth Plessner’s philosophical anthropology; it is also a timely and urgent response to the rampant skepticism about political life now current.  In demonstrating that politics belongs to the very fabric and 'unfathomability' of being human, Plessner returns to the human sciences a depth and indispensability for addressing our present." —J.M. Bernstein, New School for Social Research
