    Within the Heart’s Darkness: The Role of Emotions in Arendt’s Political Thought.Dan Degerman - 2019 - European Journal of Political Theory 18 (2):153-173.
    Interest in the political relevance of the emotions is growing rapidly. In light of this, Hannah Arendt’s claim that the emotions are apolitical has come under renewed fire. But many critics have misunderstood her views on the relationship between individuals, emotions and the political. This paper addresses this issue by reconstructing the conceptual framework through which Arendt understands the emotions. Arendt often describes the heart – where the emotions reside – as a place of darkness. I begin by tracing this (...)

    Exploring the Health Case for Universal Basic Income: Evidence From GPs Working with Precarious Groups.Robert Geyer, Dan Degerman & Matthew Johnson - 2019 - Basic Income Studies 14 (2).
    This article draws upon clinical experience of GPs working in a deprived area of the North East of England to examine the potential contribution of Universal Basic Income to health by mitigating ‘patient-side barriers’ among three cohorts experiencing distinct forms of ‘precariousness’: 1) long-term unemployed welfare recipients with low levels of education ; 2) workers on short-term/zero-hours contracts with low levels of education ; 3) workers on short-term/zero-hours contracts with relatively high levels of education. We argue that any benefits must (...)

    Brexit Anxiety: A Case Study in the Medicalization of Dissent.Dan Degerman - 2019 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 22 (7):823-840.
    This paper illustrates how concepts of mental disorder have been deployed to medicalize negative emotions and, thereby, weaken the political agency of some individuals. First, I theorise the link between political agency and emotions, arguing that effective political action entails the transformation of emotions into public issues. Using the British referendum on membership in the EU as a case study, I then examine how medically loaded terms and rhetoric were used to describe suffering after the vote. Finally, I argue that (...)
