Abstract: In his book entitled "The Down-Deep Delight of Democracy", Purcell is first looking at the discourses of pioneer thinkers, Aristotle, Plato, Hobbes, Lefebvre, Deleuze and Guattari, Ranciere, Laclau and Mouffe. While at the very beginning, as a reader, you might come up with the question, ‘why do I need such a summary and what will this study be actually be about’, Purcell answers soon enough in the third page, ‘What we need in our time is to move politically from oligarchy to democracy, from positivity to activity and from heteronomy to autonomy’.
