Abstract

In her "Feminism and the abyss of freedom", Linda Zerilli argues about the lack of "political" freedom in the "social" frame of western political thought. This essay hence focuses on her reference to Arendt and claims that feminist political thought should probably rethink the Arendtian position on the "social issue" and its allegedly antipolitical character. The risk, in fact, is that of supporting the neoliberal move to discredit the social frame as such.
Zerilli, Arendt, liberalism, feminism, the social, the political, antipolitical
