Democracy and complexity : a realist approach by Danilo Zolo( Book )

27 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and German and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a highly original and provocative contribution to democratic theory. Zolo argues that the increasing complexity of modern societies represents a fundamental challenge to the basic assumptions of the Western democratic tradition and calls for a reformulation of some of the key questions of political theory. Zolo maintains that, as modern societies become more complex and more involved in the `information revolution', they are subjected to new and unprecedented forms of evolutionary stress - as manifested, for instance, in the growing autonomy and power of political parties
Cosmopolis : prospects for world government by Danilo Zolo( Book )

27 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zolo criticizes this new cosmopolitan philosophy and rejects the idea of trying to eliminate international conflict through the use of centralized and superior military force. He seeks instead to develop a conception of international relations which takes account of their pluralistic, dynamic and conflictual nature. This conception moves away from the logic of hierarchical centralization, which so dominates the UN Charter, and towards the logic of a 'weak interventionism' and 'weak pacifism' which relies on self-organization, coordination and negotiation
Reflexive epistemology : the philosophical legacy of Otto Neurath by Danilo Zolo( Book )

19 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Danilo Zolo has written an account of Otto Neurath's epistemology which deserves careful reading by all who have studied the development of 20th century philosophy of science. Here we see the philosophical Neurath in his mature states of mind, the vigorous critic, the scientific Utopian, the pragmatic realist, the sociologist of physics and of language, the unifier and encyclopedist, always the empiricist and always the conscience of the Vienna Circle. Zolo has caught the message of Neurath's ship-at-sea in the reflexivity of language, and he has sensibly explicated the persisting threat posed by consistent conventionalism. And then Zolo beautifully articulates of the 'epistemological priority of sociology'. the provocative theme Was Neurath correct? Did he have his finger on the pulse of empiricism in the time of a genuine unity of the sciences? His friends and colleagues were unable to follow all the way with him, but Danilo Zolo has done so in this stimulating investigation of what he tellingly calls Otto Neurath's 'philosophical legacy' .

Victors' justice : from Nuremberg to Baghdad by Danilo Zolo( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in Italian and English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An argument against Western intervention in other cultures in the name of humanitarianism contends that the Western world has manipulated international law and violated tolerance policies for its own ends at the expense of disadvantaged cultures
Invoking humanity : war, law, and global order by Danilo Zolo( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Whoever invokes humanity is trying to cheat.' In this book, Danilo Zolo considers Carl Schmitt's maxim in the context of the 'humanitarian war' waged against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in the spring of 1999 by nineteen NATO countries. Published in English for the first time, Danilo Zoto's erudite and disturbing book is a political, legal and philosophical reflection on an extraordinary display of Western Power and its present and future impact on the global system of international relations. Zolo's account of the war is located within the context of the irrestible drive of globalization which he argues brings economic, financial and military, ecological and thnic-religious turbulence in its wake. It is not only the future of the Balkan region at stake here, he suggests, but the fate of international law, the future role of the United Nations and the political destiny of Europe."--Back cover

"Reflections on Empire" will appeal to anyone interested in current debates about the ways in which the world is changing today, to the many people who are followers of Negri's work and to students and scholars in sociology, politics and cultural studies."--Publisher's description
The rule of law : history, theory and criticism by Pietro Costa( Book )

17 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Costa and Zolo share the conviction that a proper understanding of the rule of law today requires referring to a global problematic horizon. It seems unavoidable to investigate into the relationship between Europe and the United States, on the one hand, and the {u2018}rest{u2019} of the world, on the other. Over the last centuries this relationship developed in terms of conquest and colonisation, on the widespread view that Western {u2018}civilisation{u2019} should be opposed as a whole to {u2018}barbaric{u2019} others. Today, however, the notion of rule of law is still rousing a debate that cannot be said to have come to an end. The reason is quite simple: if the origins of the rule of law are in {u2018}Western{u2019} societies and cultures, and if until recently the West took the lion{u2019}s share in the debate on our subject matter, it remains true that today other societies and other cultures take an active and creative part into a sustained philosophical-political debate. This is by no means a merely intellectual or academic question: the Arab-Islamic world, India, China, are not far away planets whose orbits never crossed the European and American West. On the contrary, in fairly recent times the encounters have been close and traumatic. In sum, the book intends to offer some relevant guides for orienting the reader through a political and legal debate where the rule of law (and the doctrine of {u2018}human rights{u2019}) is a concept both controversial and significant at the national and international levels
