Synopsis

Challenges to received ideas of the nation-state and sovereignty are forcing us to 'rethink' Ireland. The issue of sovereignty, which has bedevilled Irish-British relations, is trapped between the competing forces of globalisation and demands for greater regional democracy.Richard Kearney proposes the overcoming of this 'sovereignty neurosis', requiring not only a recasting of the political identity of Ireland, but also a re-imagining of the cultural, literary and philosophical heritage. Only then can the inherited political notions of nationalism, national identity and republicanism be unravelled.
