The Moral Theory of Poststructuralism by Todd May



Todd May argues both that a moral defense of poststructuralism is necessary and that it is possible. First, he develops a metaethical view of moral theoriz­. ing that treats it as a social practice rather than a transcendentally derived. Thus, the second, and for me more urgent, task of this book is to articulate both a moral theory and a metaethical standpoint that is confluent with the broad commitments of poststructuralism. Before turning to that task, however, it is worth pausing a moment to show how much poststructuralists have left themselves open to the critical theoretical critique.

Todd May argues both that a moral defense of poststructuralism is necessary and that it is possible. First, he develops a metaethical view of moral theorizing that treats it as a social practice rather than a transcendentally derived guarantee for right action. He then articulates and defends ism, a principle central to poststructuralism. In this book I defend several central tenets of the poststructuralism of thinkers like Gilles Deleuze, Jean-François Lyotard, and especially Michel Foucault. My arguments, however, are made mostly in the idiom of Anglo-American philosophy. Although I harbor no illusion that I have addressed all the relevant issues, especially all the relevant metaethical issues, I do hope to have built the framework for a coherent defense of an important strand of recent French philosophy. Finally, May offers a version of consequentialism that is consonant both with the principle of ism and with other poststructuralist commitments. In conclusion, he distinguishes morality from an aesthetics of living and.

In this unique study, Todd May, a philosopher who has himself participated in campaigns of nonviolent resistance, offers the first extended philosophical reflection on the particular and compelling political phenomenon of nonviolence. Drawing on both historical and contemporary examples, he examines the concept and objectives of nonviolence, and considers the different dynamics of nonviolence, from moral jiu-jitsu to nonviolent coercion.

Both Anglo-American and Continental thinkers have long denied that there can be a coherent moral defense of the poststructuralist politics of Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, and Jean-François Lyotard. For many Anglo-American thinkers, as well as for Critical Theorists such as Habermas, poststructuralism is not coherent enough to defend morally. Alternatively, for Foucault, Deleuze, Lyotard, and their followers, the practice of moral theorizing is passé at best and more likely insidious.

Todd May argues both that a moral defense of poststructuralism is necessary and that it is possible. First, he develops a metaethical view of moral theorizing that treats it as a social practice rather than a transcendentally derived guarantee for right action. He then articulates and defends antirepresentationalism, a principle central to poststructuralism. Finally, May offers a version of consequentialism that is consonant both with the principle of antirepresentationalism and with other poststructuralist commitments. In conclusion, he distinguishes morality from an aesthetics of living and shows the role the latter plays for those who embrace antirepresentationalism.
