This contribution consists of three phases. It focuses, firstly, on the broad outlines of a modern politics and more specifically on three forms - namely liberal democracy, socialism and nationalism. Secondly, these modern models of politics, which largely operate with a logic of exclusion, are then challenged by an alternative understanding of politics and democracy. The issue here is a postmodern politics, which emphasises the interests of the other and a logic of creative otherness. Thirdly, the issue of a modern or postmodern politics is further investigated with regard to citizenship in a multicultural society.
