A Companion to contemporary political philosophy by Robert E Goodin( Book )

128 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political philosophy has become an active and central area of research in the past two or three decades. The editors have taken a broad view of the range of issues that are relevant to political philosophy, and the Companion covers the contributions of economics, history, law, political science and sociology as well as philosophy - analytic and continental. In general, political philosophers are not just interested in the routines that govern politics but also in the various systems which politics may be used to shape. They are concerned with all the institutions that help to determine what John Rawls describes as the 'basic structure' of society. To provide a comprehensive guide to current thinking in political philosophy, Robert Goodin and Philip Pettit have divided the book into three parts: Disciplinary Contributions, Major Ideologies and Special Topics. In addition, the Companion's 41 chapters have been contributed by some of today's most distinguished academics, drawn from several different disciplines. The first part of the book consists of a series of extended essays on the contribution that a number of different disciplines have made and are making to current debates. Analyses of political ideologies form the next section, followed by discussions of major concepts ranging from virtue and equality to sociobiology and environmentalism that form the subject matter of philosophical debate

The real worlds of welfare capitalism by Robert E Goodin( Book )

34 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Real Worlds of Welfare Capitalism traces how individuals fare over time in each of the three principal types of welfare state. Through a unique analysis of panel data from Germany, the Netherlands and the US, tracking individuals' socio-economic fate over fully ten years, Goodin, Headey, Muffels and Dirven explore issues of economic growth and efficiency, of poverty and inequality, of social integration and social autonomy. It is common to talk of the inevitability of tradeoffs between these goals. However, in this book the authors contend that the social democratic welfare regime, represented here by the Netherlands, equals or exceeds the performance of the corporatist German regime and the liberal US regime across all these social and economic objectives. They thus argue that, whatever one's priorities, the social democratic welfare regime is uniquely well-suited to realizing them

"The issue of social welfare and individual responsibility has become a topic of international public debate in recent years as politicians around the world now question the legitimacy of state-funded welfare programs.

On settling by Robert E Goodin( Book )

"In a culture that worships ceaseless striving, ""settling"" seems like giving up. But is it? On Settling defends the positive value of settling, explaining why this disdained practice is not only more realistic but more useful than an excessive ideal of striving. In fact, the book makes the case that we'd all be lost without settling--and that even to strive, one must first settle ..."--Book jacket flap
Explaining norms by Geoffrey Brennan( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. porte : "Norms are a pervasive yet mysterious feature of social life. In Explaining Norms, four philosophers and social scientists team up to grapple with some of the many mysteries, offering a comprehensive account of norms: what they are; how and why they emerge, persist and change; and how they work. Norms, they argue, should be understood in non-reductive terms as clusters of normative attitudes that serve the function of making us accountable to one another-with the different kinds of norms (legal, moral, and social norms) differing in virtue of being constituted by different kinds of normative attitudes that serve to make us accountable in different ways. Explanations of and by norms should be seen as thoroughly pluralist in character. Explanations of norms should appeal to the ways that norms help us to pursue projects and goals, individually and collectively, as well as to enable us to constitute social meanings. Explanations by norms should recognise the multiplicity of ways in which norms may bear upon the actions we perform, the attitudes we form and the modes of deliberation in which we engage: following, merely conforming with, and even breaching norms. While advancing novel and distinctive positions on all of these topics, Explaining Norms will also serve as a sourcebook with a rich array of arguments and illustrations for others to reassemble in ways of their own choosing."
