Why is it important for democratic theory to rethink the question of its beginnings? Is there a founding unique to democracies? Can a democracy be democratically established? What are the implications of expanding democratic politics in light of the question of whether and how to address democracy's beginnings? Kalyvas addresses these questions and scrutinizes the possibility of democratic beginnings in terms of the category of the extraordinary, as he reconstructs it from the writings of Max Weber, Carl Schmitt, and Hannah Arendt and their views on the creation of new political, symbolic, and constitutional orders. Kalyvas explores a democratic politics of the extraordinary that integrates the 'how', 'when', and 'by whom' a constitutional government is created, in order to enlarge our understanding of democracy, popular sovereignty, and political freedom and to rethink afresh the possibility of constitutional democracy with a radical intent.
