Civic Rhetoric for the Social State: On Gerd van Istendaelís Precarius
Jinek Jakub
The paper discusses the concept of the precariate as it occurs in Gerd van Istendaelís essay The Perish of St Precarius. The goal of the paper is, on one hand, to show that Van Istendaelís usage of the concept is a piece of civic rhetoric rather than of ideology of Marxist type; on the other hand, that this approach has its inner limits given firstly by a limited perspective and secondly by neglecting the core question of common good.
