Critique, Action, and Liberation
Critique, Action, and Liberation (December 1994)
James L. Marsh - Author

"This is a comprehensive, articulate, and readable account of the major controversies that presently divide two major groups of contemporary continentalist philosophers, critical theory and postmodernism. It argues clearly, uncompromisingly, and pointedly for a version of Habermasianism. This is a substantive scholarly and philosophical achievement that represents a major statement of critical theory--its prospects and possibilities--from a major ...(Read More)
 
 
The Useful Cobbler
The Useful Cobbler (July 1994)
Edmund Burke and the Politics of Progress
James Conniff - Author

Neither a polemic nor a highly specialized study, this book is a comprehensive assessment of Burke's political thought. Using evidence from such neglected sources as Burke's essays on history and law and making full use of his extensive correspondence, the author places Burke in the context of developments in a number of areas of eighteenth-century British intellectual life, ranging from philosophy to literature, and presents him as a key figure in ...(Read More)
 
 
The Culture of Citizenship
The Culture of Citizenship (June 1994)
Inventing Postmodern Civic Culture
Thomas Bridges - Author

This book seeks to salvage liberalism, as a form of political association and as a unique culture, from the wreck of the Enlightenment. Following the lead of John Rawls’s work since 1980, Bridges seeks to rethink the fundamental concepts and moral ideals of liberalism in ways that support the recovery and affirmation of the particularistic cultural identity of the West.

“The Culture of Citizenship is provo...(Read More)
 
 
Marxism and Human Sociobiology
Marxism and Human Sociobiology (May 1994)
The Perspective of Economic Reforms in China
Boshu Zhang - Author

"This book is completely original in its main premise and at every stage of its argument. It not only reveals the thinking of a brilliant Chinese intellectual, but also displays breakthrough ideas having important universal implications transcending China."-- Kirill Thompson

"What I liked most about the book is the personal voice the author carries in approaching the problems surrounding the present socioeconomic situation in China. China has...(Read More)
 
 
The Disenchantment of Reason
The Disenchantment of Reason (April 1994)
The Problem of Socrates in Modernity
Paul R. Harrison - Author

This book is an examination of nineteenth-century interpretations of Socrates by Hegel, Kierkegaard, and Nietzsche in the light of the contemporary debates over rationality in the modern world. These interpretations of Socrates have fundamentally influenced modern and postmodern thought, and their complexity reflects both an attraction to, and a fear of, the peculiarly modern concept of reason that Socrates is read as embodying.

Socrates is ...(Read More)
 
 
Hannah Arendt
Hannah Arendt (February 1994)
Critical Essays
Lewis P. Hinchman - Editor
Sandra K. Hinchman - Editor

This work presents both the range of Arendt's political thought and the patterns of controversy it has elicited. The essays are arranged in six parts around important themes in Arendt's work: totalitarianism and evil; narrative and history; the public world and personal identity; action and power; justice, equality, and democracy; and thinking and judging. Despite such thematic diversity, virtually all the contributors have made an effort to buil...(Read More)
 
 
The Political Thought of Hannah Arendt
The Political Thought of Hannah Arendt (December 1993)
Michael G. Gottsegen - Author

This book provides a comprehensive analytical and developmental study of the whole of Arendt's mature political philosophy, focusing especially on the development of her works--The Human Condition, Between Past and Future, On Revolution, the Life of the Mind, and Lectures on Kant's Political Philosophy--and explores her contributions to democratic theory and to contemporary postmodern and neo-Kantian political philosophy.

Gottse...(Read More)
 
 
The Political Dimensions of Aristotle's Ethics
The Political Dimensions of Aristotle's Ethics (November 1993)
Richard Bodeus - Author
Jan Garrett - Translator

By renewing, with an economy of means and a rare discretion, our reading of an entire panorama of Aristotelianism, The Political Dimensions of Aristotle's Ethics seems to me to be epoch-making in current Aristotelian studies. The astonishing originality of Bodeus's text begins by taking the form of a reassembly: like those dismembered mythic heroes whose parts rearrange themselves of their own accord, the territories hitherto disjoined of ...(Read More)
 
 
Injustice and Restitution
Injustice and Restitution (October 1993)
The Ordinance of Time
Stephen David Ross - Author

"The scholarship that informs this book is both broad and deep, excavating and articulating the ideas of justice, law, authority, and community from ancient Greece to the present. The main contribution Ross makes, however, is that he brings this wealth of scholarship to bear upon some of the most acute socio-political problems of our time." -- Calvin O. Schrag, Purdue University

This book addresses the nature and injustice of authority, retr...(Read More)
 
 
The Sense of Appropriateness
The Sense of Appropriateness (September 1993)
Application Discourses in Morality and Law
Klaus Gunther - Author
John Farrell - Translator

"Does the justification of moral principle or rule of law justify its application to particular cases? This is the issue in Klaus Gunther's The Sense of Appropriateness. It is handled with great skill and critical insight. This is an admirable performance which makes a serious advance in the Frankfurt approach to the study of rational practical discourse." -- D. N. MacCormick, Center for Criminology and the Social and Philosophical Study o...(Read More)
