Natural law modernized by David Braybrooke( )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 1,470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hobbes, Locke, Hume, and Rousseau are classic modern philosophers, widely consulted in matters of ethics and political theory. In this provocative study David Braybrooke challenges received scholarly opinion by arguing that these canonical theorists took St Thomas Aquinas as their point of reference, reinforcing rather than departing from his natural law theory. The natural law theory of St Thomas Aquinas is essentially a secular theory, says Braybrooke. He argues that Hobbes, Locke, Hume, and Rousseau share a core of thought that not only has roots in St Thomas but offers an alternative to other ethical theories now current. According to Braybrooke, this surviving and reinforced core qualifies as an ethical theory viable by the most sophisticated standards, meeting the main challenges of analytical metaethics, and thus standing up to the scrutiny that any ethical theory must undergo in contemporary philosophical discussions. Braybrooke's study takes the reader into a rich and compelling intellectual universe, one in which medieval natural law theory, widely ignored as obsolete, survives robustly through the modern canon and into the third millennium
Analytical political philosophy : from discourse, edification by David Braybrooke( )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 1,448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The analytic movement has long been the dominant philosophical tradition in English-speaking countries. In Analytical Political Philosophy: From Discourse, Edification, Canadian philosopher David Braybrooke explores this movement by bringing together some of his earlier free-standing studies of the concepts of needs, rights, and rules. He combines the results with an analytical account of how to deal with consequences and thus, arrives at a program for public policy, comparable in generality at least and in trenchancy to the programs offered by Rawls, Nozick, and Gauthier."--Jacket
Meeting needs by David Braybrooke( )

16 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of needs works to sort out social policies. Yet the idea is in disrepute with many thinkers who, led by economists, accuse it of being too fluid, or too narrow, or of serving no purpose that the concept of preferences does not serve better. David Braybrooke refutes these charges by providing a model of how the concept of needs works when it is working well. Originally published in 1987. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
Moral objectives, rules, and the forms of social change by David Braybrooke( )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 1,396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fruit from forty years' writing, these essays by David Braybrooke take up an assortment of practical concerns that ethics brings into politics: people's interests; needs along with preferences; work and commitment to work; participation in social life. Essays follow on justice and the common good. Parts II and III of the book deal with settled social rules, devices for securing the objectives just treated. Part II shows that rules go hand in hand with virtues, and, in social phenomena, with causal regularities. Part III captures dialectic in history in a logical analysis of how rules (policies) can be prudent by keeping within incremental limits, yet imaginative enough to escape the recent embarrassments generated by social choice theory."--Jacket
Engaged philosophy : essays in honour of David Braybrooke by Peter K Schotch( )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His work in political philosophy is both prolific and significant and he has contributed to the philosophical corpus books on topics as diverse as utilitarianism, natural law, and moral objectives. Engaged Philosophy is a collection of original essays written in honour of Braybrooke by some of his colleagues and students at Halifax's Dalhousie University."--Jacket
Utilitarianism : restorations, repairs, renovations : variations on Bentham's master-idea, that disputes about social policy should be settled by statistical evidence about the comparative consequences for those affected by David Braybrooke( )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 1,337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Utilitarianism: Restorations; Repairs; Renovations, noted Canadian philosopher David Braybrooke revisits Jeremy Bentham's master idea that statistical evidence should determine social policies, and - perhaps surprisingly, given Braybooke's recent championship of natural law - dispels the discredit that standard versions of utilitarianism have invited."--Jacket
