An acclaimed journalist and novelist explores the legacy and future of American liberalism through the history of his family's politically active history.George Packer's maternal grandfather, George Huddleston, was a populist congressman from Alabama in the early part of the century - an agrarian liberal in the Jacksonian mold who opposed the New Deal. Packer's father was a Kennedy-era liberal, a law professor and dean at Stanford whose convictions were sorely - and ultimately, fatally - tested in the campus upheavals of the 1960s. The inheritor of two sometimes conflicting strains of the great American liberal tradition, Packer discusses the testing of ideals in the lives of his father and grandfather and his own struggle to understand the place of the progressive tradition in our currently polarized political climate. Searching, engrossing, and persuasive, this is an original, intimate examination of the meaning of politics in American lives. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Packer. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/006419/bk_rand_006419_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Spinoza: A Very Short Introduction
11,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Father of the Enlightenment and the last guardian of the medieval world, Spinoza made a brilliant attempt to reconcile the conflicting moral and intellectual demands of his epoch and to present a vision of man as simultaneously bound by necessity and eternally free. Ostracized by the Jewish community in Amsterddam to which he was born, Spinoza developed a political philosophy that set out to justify the secular state ruled by a liberal constitution, and a metaphysics that sought to reconcile human freedom with a belief in scientific explanation. Here, Roger Scruton presents a clear and systematic analysis of Spinoza's thought and shows its relevance to today's intellectual preoccupations.
