The communitarian persuasion by Philip Selznick( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Communitarian Persuasion is a brief, thoughtful, readable argument for communitarian political philosophy by one of the principal thinkers of the movement." "The communitarian movement aims to balance the individual liberties prized by modernity with the health of the community in which those liberties are exercised. The movement arose in 1980s America - a society asserting, on the left, personal self-realization, and, on the right, unrestrained capitalism and distrust of government, both sides assailing social institutions." "Philip Selznick's new book shows how the communitarian response to such pressures is not opposition but integration."--Jacket

A humanist science : values and ideals in social inquiry by Philip Selznick( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Humanist Science insightfully brings to light the value-centered nature of the social sciences. The work clearly challenges the supposed separation of fact and value, and argues that human values belong to the world of fact and are the source of the ideals that govern social and political institutions. By demonstrating the close connection between the social sciences, and the humanities, Selznick reveals how the methods of the social sciences highlight and enrich the study of such values as well-being, prosperity, rationality, and self-government." "The book moves from the animating principles that make up the humanist tradition to the values that are central to the social sciences, analyzing the core teachings of these disciplines with respect to the moral issues at stake. Throughout the work, Selznick calls attention to the conditions that affect the emergence, realization, and decline of human values, offering a valuable resource for scholars and students of law, sociology, political science, and philosophy."--BOOK JACKET

The anatomy of Nazism by Earl Raab( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a real danger that what we have learned will not be effectively communicated, especially to young people. This pamphlet will help meet the need for educational materials that spell out the meaning of totalitarianism. While it concentrates on Nazism, it calls attention to the general totalitarian features of that movement and regime. Thus, guides are offered toward a better understanding of what lies behind today's headlines."--Preface

Though his work is an important part of our shared past as organizational scholars, it's also highly relevant to our collective present and future and provides some indication of what that future could look like
