Considerations of a Representative Government
10,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Considerations of a Representative Governmentis a classic political science essay by John Stuart Mill. Those who have done me the honor of reading my previous political essays will probably receive no strong impression of novelty from the present volume; for the principles are those to which I have been working up during the greater part of my life, and most of the practical suggestions have been anticipated by others or by myself. There is novelty, however, in the fact of bringing them together, and exhibiting them in their connection, and also, I believe, in much that is brought forward in their support. Several of the opinions at all events, if not new, are for the present as little likely to meet with general acceptance as if they were. John Stuart Mill (20 May 1806 - 8 May 1873), usually cited as J. S. Mill, was a British philosopher, political economist, and civil servant. One of the most influential thinkers in the history of classical liberalism, he contributed widely to social theory, political theory, and political economy. Dubbed "the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century",[8] Mill's conception of liberty justified the freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state and social control.[9]Mill was a proponent of utilitarianism, an ethical theory developed by his predecessor Jeremy Bentham. He contributed to the investigation of scientific methodology, though his knowledge of the topic was based on the writings of others, notably William Whewell, John Herschel, and Auguste Comte, and research carried out for Mill by Alexander Bain. Mill engaged in written debate with Whewell.[10]A member of the Liberal Party, he was also the second Member of Parliament to call for women's suffrage after Henry Hunt in 1832John Stuart Mill was born at 13 Rodney Street in Pentonville, Middlesex, the eldest son of the Scottish philosopher, historian and economist James Mill, and Harriet Barrow.

The Christology of John Macquarrie
84,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Christology of John Macquarrie comprehensively scrutinizes the life and writings of Scottish-born systematic theologian and philosopher John Macquarrie (1919-2007) in an attempt to comprehend and evaluate his Christology. The author examines the people (e.g. Heidegger, Schleiermacher), the philosophical and theological positions, and the writings that formed Macquarrie's thinking. One major influence was his commitment to modern critical theology including the premise that, in the modern world, the only acceptable Christological tenets are those that can stand up to the scrutiny of modern critical reasoning. The work concludes that this commitment profoundly shaped Macquarrie's theology, especially his Christology.The book also discusses Macquarrie's evaluation and criticisms of the Christology of other theologians (e.g. Kierkegaard, Moltmann, Pannenberg, and others), concluding that Macquarrie's understanding of the Christian faith and the person of Jesus Christ is consonant with modern liberal Anglo-Catholicism. This idea furthers the argument that Macquarrie's reluctance to accept traditional incarnational categories suggests that his Christology is a modern form of Adoptionism.

Young People and Politics: Apathetic and Diseng...
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This work is an examination of the popular discourse which claims young people are apathetic and disengaged from politics. It is argued that this discourse is based upon two faulty conceptual assumptions, firstly, that youth is a period of linear transition to adulthood, and secondly, that the discourse applies an unproblematised notion of politics which has its origin in the eighteenth century Scottish Enlightenment. The research used in-depth qualitative interviews to explore the ways in which young people operating across the political spectrum understand and practice politics. The findings suggest that the narrow, liberal model of politics is the hegemonic model of politics for participants. However, this hegemony is challenged by participants' own 'political' practices, the collapse of liberalism's public/private divide under conditions of late modernity, and an interconnected sense of self. Contrary to the discourse of apathetic and disengaged youth, the study identifies a number of ways of understanding and practicing politics, particularly in light of social processes - such as individualisation and new social movements - driving contemporary social change.
