Concluding Comments: Beyond Left Melancholia
In this chapter, el-Ojeili summarises the evolution of various strands of socio-political intellectual production, and the shaping of a distinct contemporary utopian constellation. Throughout the book, el-Ojeili has made the case for what the utopian optic can offer the human sciences, and in this concluding chapter, explores how it might be used to rejuvenate political strategies.
