Seyla Benhabib has an appreciative review of Richard Bernstein’s latest in the NDPR (not sure how someone didn’t pick out the year of Burke’s Reflections as about 30 years off), a book waiting for me in St. John’s and which seems to go chapter by chapter through works I’ve assigned for my own courses on violence: Violence: Thinking Without Banisters // Reviews // Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews // University of Notre Dame.
Adrian Johnston reviews in the NDPR Lacan Deleuze Badiou by A. J. Bartlett, Justin Clemens, and Jon Roffe (Edinburgh University Press, 2014): Lacan Deleuze Badiou // Reviews // Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews // University of Notre Dame.

I think the term “neoliberalism” can mean something useful and specific if we’re more cognizant of its use.It seems to me that a lot of the confusion around the term is that it is used in at least two senses: one indicates a period in time, and one indicates an ideology. Just as “the Cold War” or “modernity” can refer to both a historical time-frame and a dominant ideology that shaped that historical period, “neoliberal” can mean both “now” and the ideology that informs this “now.”
