The Limits of Liberal Justice
79,00 € *

The Limits of Liberal Justice addresses important scholarly debates and public policy issues, discussing conceptual and political problems at the heart of Australian liberal democracy. Taking the recent debates over liberal and communitarian political philosophy as the object of inquiry, the book explores the social and political character of multiculturalism and indigenous rights movements in Australia s political culture. Cutting across the complex terrain of the many forms of claims for recognition, cultural protections and group-specific rights, the book argues that the point is not whether we should accept or reject the claims of diversity tout court. Rather we should use the protocols of the Rawlsian justice as fairness' to discern and differentiate between acceptable and unacceptable claims. Covering interesting and important aspects of the theories of citizenship, especially political liberalism, and the extent to which they help to formulate an understanding of pluralism in relation to political stability and justice, this book will prove useful reading for students and anyone interested in Rawlsian liberalism and social justice.

Contractarian Liberal Ethics and the Theory of ...
53,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book investigates the relationship between morality and rationality in the context of historical and present-day contractarian ethics. From Rawls to Gauthier, contractarians have attempted to construct their methodological foundations on the theory of rational choice. Through a careful study of the nature and limits of the theory of rational choice, Jung Soon Park argues that the theory cannot provide the reliable foundations for contractarian liberal ethics. Consequently, the author takes seriously the question about the future of contractarian liberal ethics: Is it the end or can there be a transformation?

Free Speech and the State
58,28 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book addresses the question: "What should be the appropriate limits to free speech?" The author claims that it is the state, rather than abstract principles, that must provide the answer. The book defends a version of Hobbesian absolutism and rejects the dominant liberal idea that there is a right (human or civil) setting the boundaries of free speech. This liberal view can be known as the "principled defence of free speech", in which speech is established as a constitutional principle that has priority over the state. The author instead offers an "unprincipled approach to free speech", suggesting that the boundaries of speech must necessarily be set by the state, which in liberal democracies means through social and political contestation. The final chapter applies the argument to the topic of hate speech and argues that it is appropriate to limit such speech when it causes harm and offense. The book will be of use to students and scholars across political theory, political science, sociology, philosophy and law.

Teaching to Learn/Learning to Teach
30,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is a collection of stories about teaching and learning in the liberal arts classroom, written by a Quaker who is a part-time professor of American literature and gender studies at a small, historically Quaker, liberal arts college for women outside of Philadelphia. The author reflects on the point and purpose of education in such a space, with a particular concern for the religious and interactive dimensions of the process. This book includes multiple accounts by students and colleagues, reflecting on their own experiences of teaching and learning and acknowledges the powers and limits of storytelling as a means of making sense of what happens in the college classroom.
