Focusing on the works of Hannah Arendt, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Jacques Rancire, Space, Politics and Aesthetics reveals the aesthetic premises that underlie their political thinking, and demonstrates how their conceptualisations of politics depend on the construction and apprehension of worlds through spatial forms and distributions. Mustafa Dike explores these dimensions of the political and argues that politics is about forms of perceiving the world and modes of relating to it, with space as a form of appearance and a mode of actuality, and the disruption of such forms and modes as the sublime element in politics.
