William E. Connolly

William E. Connolly

William E. Connolly is the Krieger-Eisenhower Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University. He is known for having applied conceptual analysis with a left-critical edge to social science concepts, and for introducing postmodern philosophy into political theory. He is also known for his 1974 book "The Terms of Political Discourse", widely held to be one of the major works of political theory published in the 1970s. It is still in print.

He received a PhD from University of Michigan, and has taught at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He edited the journal "Political Theory" in the 1980s. He has been teaching at Hopkins since 1985. With his colleague and interlocutor Richard E. Flathman, Connolly founded what is sometimes called "the Hopkins School" of political theory.
