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)
 
 
Sociology and the New Systems Theory
Sociology and the New Systems Theory (January 1994)
Toward a Theoretical Synthesis
Kenneth D. Bailey - Author

This book provides current information about the many recent contributions of social systems theory. While some sociologists feel that the systems age ended with functionalism, in reality a number of recent developments have occurred within the field. The author makes these developments accessible to sociologists and other non-systems scholars, and begins a synthesis of the burgeoning systems field and mainstream sociological theory. The analysis sh...(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.

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)
 
 
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)
 
 
Regarding Nature
Regarding Nature (April 1993)
Industrialism and Deep Ecology
Andrew McLaughlin - Author

"This book draws together insights in environmental philosophy and progressive political thought and discusses, in an accessible manner, a number of central issues and problems confronting the modern environmental movement. This will be of considerable appeal to liberal and left-leaning social progressives who have tended to dismiss much of modern environmental philosophy for being either ahistorical or not sufficiently attuned to cultural and soci...(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)

The events happening now in communist countries would rank among the most significant changes of this century, and will have implications far into the next century as well. The book will prove of interest to scholars and students in many disciplines, including such diverse disciplines as com...(Read More)

The Shadow of Dionysus (January 1993)
A Contribution to the Sociology of the Orgy
Michel Maffesoli - Author
Cindy Linse - Translator
Mary Kristina Palmquist - Translator

"The topic is absolutely central: the body and sexuality throughout history. It is a major contribution to the study and history of sexuality. It has a solid historical-comparative sweep, and is written with a conviction and a power that is compelling." -- Norman K. Denzin, University of Illinois

"This book takes up a theme important to the postmodern crisis -- what is the sacred, and what does it do? It locates the sacred in direct line ...(Read More)
