Mustafa Dikeç reveals the aesthetic premises that underlie Hannah Arendt, Jean-Luc Nancy and Jacques Rancière's political thinking, and demonstrates how their politics depend on the construction and apprehension of worlds through spatial forms and distributions. Exploring these dimensions of the political, he argues that politics is about how perceive and relate to the world. Space is a form of appearance and a mode of actuality, and the disruption of such forms and modes is the sublime element in politics.
