In awesome accountability: Politics past the ethical Calculus, Shalini Satkunanandan identifies a typical tendency to view our accountability as anything that may be quantified and discharged. She exhibits how a number of key thinkers within the historical past of philosophy and political concept - Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, Weber, and Heidegger - each one recommend that this calculative or bookkeeping method of our accountability effaces the incalculable, un-dischargeable and extra hard dimensions of human accountability. in addition they demonstrate how this method of accountability is on the center of 'moralism' - the pettifogging, senseless, legalistic, excessively judgmental, or punitive policing of our personal or others' compliance with ethical tasks. by means of elaborating every one of those thinkers' narratives of a tough 'conversion' to a extra nuanced method of accountability, Satkunanandan explores how we would be much less moralistic in our political debates (including these round international warming, using drone assaults on suspected terrorists, and the federal debt).
