Democracy and Possessive Individualism
Democracy and Possessive Individualism (September 1993)
The Intellectual Legacy of C. B. Macpherson
Joseph H. Carens - Editor

"Macpherson's work continues to animate the literature of contemporary political theory, and his arguments have had a pervasive influence on current conversations. An impressive group of scholars has been brought together to address his work, and they not only illuminate his ideas but, in responding to his claims, offer important claims of their own. These are strong essays in their own right, and a focused discussion of Macpherson is a most worth...(Read More)
 
 
Operative Rights
Operative Rights (September 1993)
Beth J. Singer - Author

This book was written because none of the more traditional theories accurately portray the way rights, including individual rights, actually function. It develops a theory of rights that challenges the individualism of the human rights tradition and ascribes rights to collectivities as well as to individuals.

Drawing in part on the thought of George Herbert Mead, Singer develops an analysis of rights as social institutions. Integral to th...(Read More)
 
 
Socratic Rationalism and Political Philosophy
Socratic Rationalism and Political Philosophy (August 1993)
An Interpretation of Plato's Phaedo
Paul Stern - Author

In this new interpretation of Plato's Phaedo, Paul Stern considers the dialogue as an invaluable source for understanding the distinctive character of Socratic rationalism. First, he demonstrates, contrary to the charge of such thinkers as Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Rorty, that Socrates' rationalism does not rest on the dogmatic presumption of the rationality of nature. Second, he shows that the distinctively Socratic mode of philosophizin...(Read More)
 
 
Intellectuals and the Crisis of Modernity
Intellectuals and the Crisis of Modernity (August 1993)
Carl Boggs - Author

This book is a page-turner on a subject that is of the greatest interest to social theorists, historians, and that broad constituency of readers who are concerned with the fate of education, political life, and above all, the intellectual level of our period.

"With a style that is amazingly lucid and inviting, Boggs has provided a basic framework for discussing one of the most disquieting problems of our times: the absorption of what was once...(Read More)
 
 
Hermeneutics, Citizenship, and the Public Sphere
Hermeneutics, Citizenship, and the Public Sphere (July 1993)
Roberto Alejandro - Author

This book sheds new light on the question of democratic politics by proposing a hermeneutic conception of citizenship and the public sphere. At the same time, it presents a critique of the postmodern arguments advanced by Richard Rorty, Jean-Francois Lyotard, and Jean Baudrillard. Questioning a dominant interpretation that sees Gadamer's hermeneutics as the expression of a conservative project, Alejandro argues that it includes an important el...(Read More)
 
 
Ideology and False Consciousness
Ideology and False Consciousness (July 1993)
Marx and His Historical Progenitors
Christopher L. Pines - Author

In this book Christopher Pines demonstrates that Karl Marx conceived of ideology as false consciousness. He shows how the different meanings of false consciousness found in the writings of Marx and Engels reflect the influence of the views of the Baconian-French Enlightenment and of Hegelian Feuerbachian philosophies. Pines argues that, for Marx, the diverse senses of false consciousness all generally denote a social consciousness that takes certa...(Read More)
 
 
To Be One of Us
To Be One of Us (March 1993)
Cultural Conflict, Creative Democracy, and Education
Nancy Bevin Warehime - Author

"Anyone who ventures to discuss the moral implications of a given subject matter such as education, is asking for trouble. Much safer, the 'wise' will tell us, to keep distanced from the subject matter, to be reportorial rather than involved, or to let others work on the 'implications.' Fortunately for her readers, Dr. Warehime rejects such advice. She is not only a map-maker but a participant in what is happening on the terrain she has pictured ...(Read More)
 
 
A Discourse on Disenchantment
A Discourse on Disenchantment (February 1993)
Reflections on Politics and Technology
Gilbert G. Germain - Author

"In the worldwide ecological crisis facing us today, hardly an issue demands our attention more urgently than the relation between modern civilization and nature. Germain boldly tackles this issue in its broad political and philosophical ramifications. Focusing on the Weberian notion of 'disenchantment,' his book offers a detailed genealogy of the steadily deepening rift between mind and matter, between modern technology and mastery over nature. ...(Read More)
 
 
Modernity and Authenticity
Modernity and Authenticity (January 1993)
A Study of the Social and Ethical Thought of Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Alessandro Ferrara - Author

"This book is an original analysis of the idea of authenticity in Rousseau's work in particular and in the tradition of modern ethics in general. It begins with an overview of the persistent critique by contemporary conservatives of the notion of authenticity. Ferrara succeeds in bringing out the relevance of Rousseau to current discussions of modernity and postmodernity. It also brings some initial clarity and coherence to an idea--authenticity--th...(Read More)
 
 
Dialectical Social Theory and Its Critics
Dialectical Social Theory and Its Critics (December 1992)
From Hegel to Analytical Marxism and Postmodernism
Tony Smith - Author

Establishes that dialectical social theory retains practical importance today and is, in fact, crucial to interdisciplinary attempts to construct a viable theory of the social world.

That there is a "Hegelian legacy" in Marx's writings is not in dispute. There is great controversy, however, over the extent to which this legacy should be affirmed or rejected. In fact, the Hegelian orientation toward Marx and toward...(Read More)
