Absolute Democracy – the concept originally used by Baruch Spinoza, and 
meanwhile updated by Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt, stands for the 
vision of a republic founded on a broad collaboration of its citizens 
and on the development of common goods. It is the vision of a 
redistribution of wealth and power, and of new, more equitable systems 
of rule that challenge a normative understanding of class, race, gender 
and sexuality.

Against this background, “Absolute Democracy” takes a critical look at 
the concept of democracy, spotlighting the problems of its social, 
political and economic consequences and offering alternative 
interpretations of historiography.
