Abstract: The proposed roundtable brings together distinguished Canadian political scientists to celebrate the many contributions to the understanding of politics made by Philip Resnick over the course of his illustrious career. The participants have been invited to speak to an aspect of his work that they consider especially significant—from political theory to Canadian politics to political economy and comparative politics. Works to be discussed include Letters to a Québécois Friend; The Masks of Proteus: Canadian Reflections on the State; Parliament Vs People: An Essay on Democracy and Canadian Political Culture, Toward a Canada-Quebec Union; Thinking English Canada; Twenty-First Century Democracy; The Politics of Resentment: B.C. Regionalism and Canadian Unity; The European Roots of Canadian Identity; The Labyrinth of North American Identities, as well as essays like “Montesquieu Revisited, or the mixed constitution and the separation of powers in Canada.” Using these texts as a foundation, participants will offer their own reflections on the themes and problems that have occupied Resnick throughout his career.
