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

34 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 1,577 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

On settling by Robert E Goodin( )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
Discretionary time : a new measure of freedom by Robert E Goodin( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A healthy work-life balance has become increasingly important to people trying to cope with the pressures of contemporary society. This trend highlights the fallacy of assessing well-being in terms of finance alone; how much time we have matters just as much as how much money. The authors of this book have developed a novel way to measure 'discretionary time': time which is free to spend as one pleases. Exploring data from the US, Australia, Germany, France, Sweden and Finland, they show that temporal autonomy varies substantially across different countries and under different living conditions. By calibrating how much control people have over their time, and how much they could have under alternative welfare, gender or household arrangements, this book offers a new perspective for comparative cross-national enquiries into the temporal aspects of human welfare."--Jacket

Contemporary political philosophy : an anthology by Robert E Goodin( Book )

41 editions published between 1997 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays contained in this collection represent what seem to us to be canonical texts in contemporary political philosophy. But they only represent the contemporary canon, they do not exhaust it. Although this collection is two or perhaps three times the size of most, we nevertheless found that we had space for only a sample of the very many more texts and topics that we would like to have included.The collection is deliberately designed as a companion to our earlier Companion to Contemporary Political Philosophy (Oxford: Wiley-Blackwell, 1993; 2nd edition, 2012). We attempted to retain something of the same flavor in this collection, much the same scope of substantive concerns and much the same diversity of analytic styles. Inevitably, though, there is so much more surveyed in the Companion's many chapters than can be reprinted here. Interested readers are referred back to the Companion not only to situate the texts in the present collection but also for further readings and whole other sets of concerns"--

David Schmidtz and Robert Goodin debate the ethical merits of individual versus collective responsibility for welfare.
