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)
 
 
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)
