Further Details
Abstract Any book written by Iulia Motoc is an intellectual challenge and, after careful consideration, any reader may have the feeling of an extraordinary sense of accomplishment. This is because the author has a double specialization, in law and political philosophy, while demonstrating a prestigious academic carrier in the field of political science as well as a solid set of knowledge derived from universal literature. This whole set of preoccupations makes the topics selected by Iulia Motoc to be premeditatedly and systematically situated at the borders of multiple disciplines, so that the jurist may have the chance of observing that the norms which he is obliged to apply have a higher rationality than that of the simple will of the lawmaker, and the expert in political science that the object that he or she is analyzing must not only be put into connection with the behavior of political actors. Iulia Motoc’s most recent book, “On Democracy within the United Europe” places itself within the same class of interdisciplinary frontiers that open in front of the reader and that show themselves as being filled with meanings yet to be discovered.
