Preface
This book began as a conversation on a train headed from Pittsburgh toWashington to attend the Eastern Division meetings of the AmericanPhilosophical Association. I was trying to explain to a friend, Mark Lance,what the political theory of poststructuralism was all about. He listenedmore patiently than he should have and then said, "It sounds likeanarchism to me." That comment was the seed of an article, Is Post-Structuralist Political Theory Anarchist?--which appeared in Philosophyand Social Criticism in 1989--and eventually of the present work.I believe that people familiar with feminist theory will discover that muchof the perspective developed here has resonances with feminism, and somemay wonder why I have not discussed those resonances in the text. Theexplanation is simple, having to do with the limitations of my ownexpertise. It would take a grasp broader than my own to do justice to bothfeminism and poststructuralism at the same time. I must, therefore, leavethat task to someone else.I would like to thank Mark Poster and Thomas Dumm for careful readingsand thoughtful suggestions regarding the text. Nancy Love'sencouragement helped get the project going. Sandy Thatcher, Kate Capps,and Cherene Holland at Penn State Press are a joy to work with. Chuck Purrenhage has once again protected the English language from myonslaughts. And Mark Lance has, over the years, provided me withintellectual riches far exceeding my ability to put them to good use.
