The Meaning of Religious Freedom
The Meaning of Religious Freedom (February 1995)
Modern Politics and the Democratic Resolution
Franklin I. Gamwell - Author

This is the most thorough philosophical analysis available of the principle of religious freedom. It draws on the thought of philosophers and political theorists (Rawls, Habermas, Murray, Rorty, Greenawalt, and Mead) rather than on the framers of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
"It is the most thorough theoretical examination of the subject that is available today. The author takes up the best, most reliable interpretations ...(Read More)
 
 
Problems of Style
Problems of Style (January 1995)
Michel Foucault's Epistemology
Walter Privitera - Author
Jean Keller - Translator

This is a unification of Michel Foucault's thought as a systematic epistemological project. Privitera shows that the method and unity of Foucault's writings can only be seen by examining their origins in the work of Bachelard and Canguilhem.
In this original reading, Privitera argues for a continuity in Foucault's work best seen when various themes and methodological strategies in his writings are traced back to the influence of Gaston B...(Read More)

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

"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)
