Seven Theses on the Dream of Absolutism

(p.205) Conclusion
The Dream of Absolutism

Hall Bjørnstad

University of Chicago Press

This brief conclusion advances the exploration at the conceptual core of the project, informed by the analyses in the preceding chapters, by articulating seven theses on the dream of absolutism. What happens to the dream of absolutism after absolutism? As the seventh thesis has it, it remains latent in our collective political imaginary and can still be dreamt today.

Keywords:   absolutism, demystification, propaganda, ostentation, dream, political aesthetics
