How can people recognize and event the burdens of political accountability? Why are we tempted to escape them, and the way could we come to confirm them? Jade Larissa Schiff calls this event of accountability 'the cultivation of responsiveness'. In Burdens of Political accountability: Narrative and the Cultivation of Responsiveness, she identifies 3 tendencies that inhibit responsiveness - thoughtlessness, undesirable religion, and misrecognition - and turns to storytelling in its manifold kinds as a convention that would facilitate and frustrate it. via severe engagements with an strange solid of characters (from Bourdieu to Sartre) hailing from quite a few disciplines (political concept, phenomenology, sociology, and literary criticism), she argues that how we symbolize our global and ourselves within the tales we percentage, and the way we obtain these tales, can facilitate and frustrate the cultivation of responsiveness.
