Drawing the line once again : Paul Goodman's anarchist writings by Paul Goodman( )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Goodman's literary executor Taylor Stoehr has gathered together nine core texts from his anarchist legacy to future generations--the "utopian essays and practical proposals" that inspired the dissident youth of the Sixties, influencing movement theory and practice so profoundly that they have become underlying assumptions of today's radicalism. Goodman's analyses of citizenship and civil disobedience, decentralism and the organized system show him Drawing the Line Once Again, mindful of the long anarchist tradition, and especially of the Jeffersonian democracy that resonated strongly in his own political thought. This is a deeply American book, a potent antidote to U.S. global imperialism and domestic anomie. --Book Jacket

Communitas : means of livelihood and ways of life by Percival Goodman( Book )

59 editions published between 1947 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Goodman brothers see a "community plan" not as a layout of streets and houses, but as the external form of the activity going on. "It is more like a choreography of society in motion and in rest, an arrangement for society to live out its habits and ideals and do its work, directing itself or being directed." They examine in turn the three main types of plans which have emerged in the last hundred years, grouping them into three classes: the green belt, industrial plans, and integrated plans. The Goodmans turn then to their own, and they arrive at three completely different community formulas, with communities for efficient consumption, the elimination of the difference between production and consumption, and planned security with minimum regulation. The authors enjoy themselves working out the architectural implications of their double economy--the "production center" and minimal settlements of the subsistence economy. By the nature of their approach, they are forced to stray out of the field of town-planning into that of economics, with mixed results. However, all their suggestions release a speculative faculty in the reader's brain, and that may be the best approach to forward the building their idealized communities

Speaking and language : defence of poetry by Paul Goodman( Book )

38 editions published between 1971 and 1981 in English and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, an attempt is made to describe how people actually speak and the language that is actually spoken. The subject of modern linguistics is presented in a new light. Good language is defined as a tension between the code and what needs to be said and a tension between the expressivity of the speaker and the comprehension of the hearer. Thus, language is not a means of communication between speaker and hearer; it is their communication. The book draws heavily on the author's years as a psychotherapist, distinguishing examples of vital speech and neurotic speech, and developing Kurt Goldstein's theory of aphasia. Good speech is both deeply conservative and continually agitational. The book returns to the tradition of philology by often using literature, and the analysis of styles, to reveal the nature of language. (Editor/CK)
