Political theory is currently marked by lively discussion, not least in response to changing social conditions. Brigitte Bargetz seizes on these current debates and puts forward a new direction of political thought using the concept of the everyday: Following Henri Lefebvre, Agnes Heller, and Lawrence Grossberg, she outlines a complex theory of everyday life that allows for a perception of the everyday as an ambivalent political battleground between domination and resistance, providing the starting point for a practical theory of politics beyond the state.
