  • Political Neutralityby Roberto Merrill; Daniel Weinstock

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 95.00

    The topic of neutrality on the good is linked rather closely to the ideal of political liberalism as formulated by John Rawls. Here internationally renowned authors, in several cases among the most prominent names to be found in contemporary political theory, present a collection of ten essays on the idea of liberal neutrality. more...

  • Equality for Inegalitariansby George Sher

    Cambridge University Press 2014; US$ 24.00

  • Ethicsby Alain Badiou; Peter Hallward

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 17.95

    Alain Badiou, one of the most powerful voices in contemporary French philosophy, shows how our prevailing ethical principles serve ultimately to reinforce an ideology of the status quo and fail to provide a framework for an effective understanding of the concept of evil. more...

  • The Idea of Progressby J. B. Bury

    The Floating Press 1920; US$ 5.99

    "We may believe in the doctrine of Progress or we may not, but in either case it is a matter of interest to examine the origins and trace the history of what is now, even should it ultimately prove to be no more than an idolum saeculi, the animating and controlling idea of western civilisation. For the earthly Progress of humanity is the general... more...

  • Human Rights and the Uses of Historyby Samuel Moyn

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 16.95

    Where did human rights come from? This question, rarely asked before the end of the Cold War, has in recent years become a major focus of historical and ideological strife. In a series of reflective and critical essays, Samuel Moyn engages with some of the leading theorists of human rights, who have been creating a field from scratch without due reflection... more...

  • Looking Backwardby Derek L. Phillips

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 32.00

    When social reformers blame the current ills of Western culture on the loss of community, they often evoke an ideal past in which societies were characterized by shared values, respect for tradition, commitment to the common good, and similar attributes. Communitarians assert that community was prominent in the past, and argue that reclaiming the... more...

  • Freudianismby Valentin Voloshinov; Neal Bruss; I.R. Titunik

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 17.95

    Freudianism is a major icon in the history of ideas, independently rich and suggestive today both for psychoanalysis and for theories of language. It offers critical insights whose recognition demands a change in the manner in which the fundamental principles of both psychoanalysis and linguistic theory are understood. Volosinov went to the root... more...

  • Moral Foundations of Constitutional Thoughtby Graham Walker

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    Graham Walker boldly recasts the debate over issues like constitutional interpretation and judicial review, and challenges contemporary thinking not only about specifically constitutional questions but also about liberalism, law, justice, and rights. Walker targets the "skeptical" moral nihilism of leading American judges and writers, on both the... more...

  • Citizenship and the Pursuit of the Worthy Lifeby David Thunder

    Cambridge University Press 2014; US$ 68.00

    This book argues that the insulation of public life from the ethical standpoint puts in jeopardy the legitimacy and survival of our political communities. more...

  • On War and Moralityby Robert L. Holmes

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 42.00

    The threat to the survival of humankind posed by nuclear weapons has been a frightening and essential focus of public debate for the last four decades and must continue to be so if we are to avoid destroying ourselves and the natural world around us. One unfortunate result of preoccupation with the nuclear threat, however, has been a new kind of "respectability"... more...
