Interview: Roberto Mangabeira Unger
I find legal and political theorist Roberto Mangabeira Unger fascinating for a number of reasons. Most especially, I think his recent writings    are provocative attempts to extend a pragmatist commitment to insititutional pluralism and experimentalism into the realm of political-economic arrangements. As I noted here last spring, Unger accepted a position as Minister for Long-Term Strategic Planning in the cabinet of Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (with whom he appears in the photo above). You can find a recent interview with Unger here at the Financial Times online in which he discusses the initiatives he is seeking to promote.
