In search of the good life : a pedagogy for troubled times by Fred R Dallmayr( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 2,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To whom should we look for moral guidance during times of global violence, scarcity, and corruption? For two millennia, Aristotle's writings have taught that the ethically "good life" is the highest purpose of human existence. In In Search of the Good Life, renowned philosopher Fred Dallmayr traces the development of this notion, illuminating the connections between Greek philosophy, Judeo-Christian tradition, Eastern religions, and postindustrial social criticism. Dallmayr searches the writings of Bonaventure, Nicolaus of Cusa, Leibniz, Montesquieu, and others, for models of the good life
Beyond orientalism : essays on cross-cultural encounter by Fred R Dallmayr( )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 2,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After discussing the broad range of possible "modes of cross-cultural encounter" in a historical perspective, the book develops as a preferred option the notion of a deconstructive dialogue or a "hermeneutics of difference" which respects otherness beyond assimilation. This hermeneutics is illustrated in chapters examining several bridge-builders between cultures, primarily the Indian philosophers Radhakrishnan and J.L. Mehta and the Indologist Halbfass. The remaining chapters are devoted to more concrete social-political problems, including issues of modernization, multiculturalism, and the prospects of a globalized democracy which bids farewell to Orientalism and Eurocentrism

The promise of democracy : political agency and transformation by Fred R Dallmayr( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new ethical concept of democracy as the cultivation and practice of civic virtues in a pluralistic setting is presented in this thoughtful and wide-ranging study. Drawing upon such figures as Aristotle, Montesquieu, Hegel, Dewey, Heidegger, Arendt, and Lefort, Fred Dallmayr emphasizes the need for civic education and practical-ethical engagement in all societies aspiring to be democratic. With reference to Middle Eastern societies and especially Iran, Dallmayr explores the possible compatibility between democracy and Islamic faith. In a similar vein, he discusses the strengths of Gandhian and Confucian democracy as possible correctives to current versions of "minimalist" democracy and the cult of laissez-faire liberalism and neoliberalism." "Addressing how to instill a democratic ethos in societies where corporations and elites exercise a great deal of power, The Promise of Democracy presents an inspired vision of democracy as popular "self-rule" in which ethical cultivation and self-transformation make possible a nondomineering kind of political agency. Against this background, Dallmayr casts democracy as a "promise," making room for the unlimited horizons opened up by a new understanding of liberty and equality."--Jacket
Integral pluralism : beyond culture wars by Fred R Dallmayr( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 1,708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Integral Pluralism: Beyond Culture Wars provides a comprehensive view of modern culture wars by analyzing several interrelated themes, including the concept of the political, political theology, and post-secular religion. Each of these themes sheds light on the complexity of cultural conflicts and evokes the need for integral pluralism. The author argues that only by revising the world's understanding of pluralism as radical fragmentation can society hope for more peaceful development. Critically comparing integral pluralism against the theories of Carl Schmitt, the Religious Right, international "realism," and so-called political Islam and drawing, on the works of William James, Martin Heidegger, Hans-Georg Gadamer, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Dallmayr offers pathways beyond the ingrained conflicts of our time. He also revisits the work of Gandhi as an example of integral pluralism in practice. --From publisher's description

Return to nature? : an ecological counterhistory by Fred R Dallmayr( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sustainability has become a compelling topic of domestic and international debate as the world searches for effective solutions to accumulating ecological problems. In Return to Nature? An Ecological Counterhistory, Fred Dallmayr demonstrates how nature has been marginalized, colonized, and abused in the modern era. Although nature was regarded as a matrix that encompassed all beings in premodern and classical thought, modern Western thinkers tend to disregard this original unity, essentially exiling nature from human life. By means of a philosophical counterhistory leading from Spinoza to Dewey and beyond, the book traces successive efforts to correct this tendency. Grounding his writing in a holistic relationism that reconnects humanity with ecology, Dallmayr pleads for the reintroduction of nature into contemporary philosophical discussion and sociopolitical practice."--Pub. desc
Civilizations and world order : geopolitics and cultural difference by Ahmet Davutoğlu( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Civilizations and World Order: Geopolitics and Cultural Difference examines the role of civilizations in the context of the existing and possible world order(s) from a cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary perspective. Contributions seek to clarify the meaning of such complex and contested notions as "civilization, " "order, " and "world order"; they do so by taking into account political, economic, cultural, and philosophical dimensions of social life. The book deals with its main theme from three angles or vectors: first, the geopolitical or power-political context of civilizations; secondly, the different roles of civilizations or cultures against the backdrop of "post-coloniality" and "Orientalism"; and thirdly, the importance of ideological and regional differences as factors supporting or obstructing world order(s). All in all, the different contributions demonstrate the impact of competing civilizational trajectories on the functioning or malfunctioning of contemporary world order.--

A world beyond global disorder : the courage to hope by Fred R Dallmayr( )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A world which, like ours, has been ravaged by some 60 wars in recent decades, can rightly be described as the scene of global disorder. Even today, the same world is traumatized by hot and cold wars, proxy wars, and repeated outbursts of blood-filled mayhem, not to mention the threat of a nuclear holocaust unleashed by big power rivalries. These are not mere statistics, but wounds, in the body of humanity, calling for healing and reconciliation. In biblical terms, human beings are not meant to be the owners or the destroyers of the world, but rather its custodians or caretakers. This collection is a summons to responsible care-taking, and it approaches the subject from an intercultural perspective in a variety of fields, including religion and politics

Being in the world : dialogue and cosmopolis by Fred R Dallmayr( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is commonly agreed that we live in an age of globalization, but the profound consequences of this development are rarely understood. Usually, globalization is equated with the expansion of economic and financial markets and the proliferation of global networks of communication. In truth, much more is at stake: Traditional concepts of individual and national identity as well as perceived relationships between the self and others are undergoing profound change. Every town has become a potential cosmopolis--an international city--affecting the way that people conceptualize the relationship between public order and political practice. In Being in the World, noted political theorist Fred Dallmayr explores the globe's transition from the traditional Westphalian system of states to today's interlocking cosmopolitan network ..."--Publisher's website

Contemporary Chinese political thought : debates and perspectives( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Westerners seem united in belief that China has emerged as a major economic power and that this success will continue, but are less certain about future of China's political system. China's steps toward free market capitalism have led many outsiders to expect increased democratization and a more Western political system. The Chinese, however, have developed their own version of capitalism. Westerners view Chinese politics through the lens of their own ideologies, preventing them from understanding Chinese goals and policies. In Contemporary Chinese Political Thought: Debates and Perspectives, Fred Dallmayr and Zhao Tingyang bring together leading Chinese intellectuals to debate the main political ideas shaping this rapidly changing nation. They investigate such topics as the popular "China Model", the resurgence of Chinese Confucianism and its applications to the modern world, and liberal socialism. Comprising a broad range of opinions and perspectives, this book is an up-to-date examination in English of modern Chinese political attitudes and discourse
