    In addition to war, terrorism, and unchecked military violence, modernity is also subject to less visible but no less venomous conflicts.

Internationally acclaimed scholar Fred Dallmayr charts a course beyond these persistent but curable... more...

  • In Search of the Good Lifeby Fred Dallmayr

    The University Press of Kentucky 2007; US$ 50.00

    To whom should we look for moral guidance during times of global violence, scarcity, and corruption? For two millennia, Aristotle's writings have taught that the ethically "good life" is the highest purpose of human existence. In In Search of the Good Life , renowned philosopher Fred Dallmayr traces the development of this notion, illuminating the... more...

  • Return to Nature?by Fred Dallmayr

    The University Press of Kentucky 2011; US$ 50.00

    Sustainability has become a compelling topic of domestic and international debate as the world searches for effective solutions to accumulating ecological problems. In Return to Nature? An Ecological Counterhistory , Fred Dallmayr demonstrates how nature has been marginalized, colonized, and abused in the modern era. Although nature was regarded... more...

  • Being in the Worldby Fred Dallmayr

    The University Press of Kentucky 2013; US$ 50.00

    It is commonly agreed that we live in an age of globalization, but the profound consequences of this development are rarely understood. Usually, globalization is equated with the expansion of economic and financial markets and the proliferation of global networks of communication. In truth, much more is at stake: Traditional concepts of individual... more...

  • Border Crossingsby Fred Dallmayr

    Lexington Books 1999; US$ 45.50

    Comparative political theory is at best an embryonic and marginalized endeavor. As practiced in most Western universities, the study of political theory generally involves a rehearsal of the canon of Western political thought from Plato to Marx. Only rarely are practitioners of political thought willing (and professionally encouraged) to transgress... more...

  • Mindfulness and Letting Beby Fred Dallmayr

    Lexington Books 2014; US$ 37.99

    Fred Dallmayr explores the benefits of mindfulness in respect to philosophy and theory, practical conduct, language use, art works, historical understanding, and cosmopolitanism.

  • Freedom and Solidarityby Fred Dallmayr

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 60.00

    The prevailing Western paradigm is modernity: a model focused on individual liberty, secularism, and the scientific control of nature. This worldview emerged from the break with the medieval and classical past and advanced a philosophy in which the solitary mind opposes the rest of the world. Although there is a simple appeal in this binary structure,... more...

  • Against Apocalypseby Fred Dallmayr

    Lexington Books 2015; US$ 38.00

    The book is a protest against some geopolitical agendas which are pushing the world toward a major global war, and possibly toward a nuclear apocalypse. As an antidote, the book issues a call to people everywhere to oppose this rush to destruction and to restore the "wholeness of humanity" through the quest for just peace. more...

  • Democracy to Comeby Fred Dallmayr

    Oxford University Press 2017; US$ 19.99

    Democracy to Come lays the groundwork of a new understanding of modern democracy. Rejecting the idea that democracy is a stable system fostered through regime change and the unidirectional transfer of concepts from the West to autocracies, Fred Dallmayr argues democracy must be relational - nurtured by different societies and cultures from within.... more...
