  • Politics and the Imaginationby Raymond Geuss

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 28.95

    In politics, utopians do not have a monopoly on imagination. Even the most conservative defenses of the status quo, Raymond Geuss argues, require imaginative acts of some kind.

In A World without Why , Raymond... more...

It is, for instance, widely held that the state may address human action in the ''public'' realm but not in... more...

  • Kritik der politischen Philosophieby Raymond Geuss; Karin Wördemann

    Hamburger Edition HIS 2013; US$ 8.63

    Wozu brauchen wir eine politische Philosophie? Die Frage nach der Gerechtigkeit ist einer der ältesten und kontroversesten in der Philosophiegeschichte.
