MemberEnzo Rossi

I’m a political theorist in the Department of Political Science at the University of Amsterdam, and the co-editor of the European Journal of Political Theory. My main current project is a realist critical theory of legitimacy. This stems from the intersection of a number of interests: (i) methodological issues in political theory, e.g. realism vs moralism and, relatedly but separately, ideal vs non-ideal theory; (ii) the historical development liberal ideology; (iii) the normative status of political authority; (iv) the accommodation of diversity. More generally, I’m concerned with the relationship between the descriptive and the normative study of society.
