Jeremy Waldron

Here is a big event in political theory circles; Jeremy Waldron has just delivered the inaugural address as Chichele Chair of Political Theory at Oxford. You can find a link to the text of his address here. Waldron is a very smart guy and an outstanding selection for the position.  On top of that, a quick glance at Waldron's remarks suggests that he thinks political theory is rightly concerned with pretty much the things I think it should be concerned with - institutions, how they emerge and operate, and how they might be justified.
