Real freedom for all : what (if anything) can justify capitalism? by Philippe van Parijs( Book )

44 editions published between 1945 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Capitalist societies are full of unacceptable inequalities. Freedom is of paramount importance. These two convictions are widely shared across the world, yet they seem to be completely contradictory with each other. Fighting inequality jeopardizes freedom, and taking freedom seriously boosts inequality. Can this conflict be resolved? In this ground-breaking book, Philippe Van Parijs sets out a new and compelling case for a just society. Assessing and rejecting the claims of both socialism and conventional capitalism, he presents a clear and compelling alternative vision of the just society: a capitalist society offering a substantial and unconditional basic income to all its members. Not just an exercise in political theory, this book goes on to show what his ideal of a free society means in the real world by drawing out its policy implications. It will be essential reading for anyone concerned about the just society and the welfare state as we move into the twenty-first century." --
Basic income : a radical proposal for a free society and a sane economy by Philippe van Parijs( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Providing a basic income to everyone, rich or poor, active or inactive, was advocated by Paine, Mill, and Galbraith but the idea was never taken seriously. Today, with the welfare state creaking, it is one of the world's most widely debated proposals. Philippe Van Parijs and Yannick Vanderborght present a comprehensive defense of this radical idea.--

Marxism recycled by Philippe van Parijs( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays collected in this book reflect the author's conviction that the Marxist tradition can be kept alive as an essential political component of the Left not through dutiful conservation, but through ruthless recycling. The book draws lessons from the blind alleys to which Marxist thought led, and preserves and develops the most precious insights it contains. In particular, it spells out and defends the controversial notion of a 'capitalist road to communism' that would remain true to the Marxian ideal while embracing capitalism
Linguistic justice for Europe and for the world by Philippe van Parijs( Book )

33 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Europe and throughout the world, competence in English is spreading at a speed never achieved by any language in human history. This apparently irresistible growing dominance of English is frequently perceived and sometimes indignantly denounced as being grossly unjust. Linguistic Justice for Europe and for the World starts off arguing that the dissemination of competence in a common lingua franca is a process to be welcomed and accelerated, most fundamentally because it provides the struggle for greater justice in Europe and in the world with an essential weapon: a cheap medium of communication and of mobilization. However, the resulting linguistic situation can plausibly be regarded as unjust in three distinct senses. Firstly, the adoption of one natural language as the lingua franca implies that its native speakers are getting a free ride by benefiting costlessly from the learning effort of others. Secondly, they gain greater opportunities as a result of competence in their native language becoming a more valuable asset. And thirdly the privilege systematically given to one language fails to show equal respect for the various languages with which different portions of the population concerned identify. The book spells out the corresponding interpretations of linguistic justice as cooperative justice, distributive justice and parity of esteem, respectively. And it discusses systematically a wide range of policies that might help achieve linguistic justice in these three senses, from a linguistic tax on Anglophone countries to the banning of dubbing or the linguistic territoriality principle. Against this background, the book argues that linguistic diversity is not valuable in itself but it will nonetheless need to be protected as a by-product of the pursuit of linguistic justice as parity of esteem

L'éthique peut-elle répondre aux immenses espoirs placés en elle?

Just democracy : the Rawls-Machiavelli programme by Philippe van Parijs( Book )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We don't just need democracy. We need just democracy. Among the countless ways in which democracies could be organized, we must not try to adopt the most democratic ones. We must go instead for those that offer the best prospect of making our societies and our world more just. This is the core of the Rawls-Machiavelli programme forcefully advocated and vividly illustrated in this book, a powerful alliance between Rawlsian thinking about social justice and Machiavellian thinking about political institutions. For example, how could our political institutions be reformed in order to better serve intergenerational justice? And how should political institutions be shaped to as to best fit the specific circumstances of deeply divided societies, or of multilingual countries, or of the European Union? This is the sort of question that is being addressed in this unusual combination of rigorous philosophical arguments, detailed historical accounts and bold political proposals."--Publisher's description
Basic income, unemployment and compensatory justice by L. F. M Groot( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Basic Income, Unemployment and Compensatory Justice it is argued that implementing a substantial basic income is the best policy response to deal with unemployment-induced problems such as job insecurity, social exclusion, poverty and lack of compensatory justice on the labour market and to improve labour market flexibility, boost low wage employment and part-time work. Basic Income, Unemployment and Compensatory Justice, with an introductory chapter by Philippe van Parijs, discusses the attractiveness of a substantial basic income to deal with the problem of unemployment, in combination with an ethical perspective of social justice."--BOOK JACKET

L'allocation universelle by Yannick Vanderborght( )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Impossible aujourd'hui de penser l'avenir de nos systèmes de protection sociale sans évoquer l'allocation universelle, dont le principe est de verser, sans condition, à tous les citoyens, un revenu de base cumulable avec tout autre type de revenu. Défendue sous des appellations et pour des motifs divers par des universitaires et des militants, des hommes d'affaires et des syndicalistes, des formations politiques de droite et de gauche, des mouvements sociaux et des organisations non gouvernementales, l'allocation universelle a bénéficié de l'appui d'étranges coalitions et suscité de féroces oppositions. Pour certains, elle constitue un remède décisif à de nombreux fléaux, à commencer par la pauvreté et le chômage. Pour d'autres, elle n'est qu'une absurde chimère, économiquement impraticable et éthiquement inacceptable. En s'efforçant de donner d'un débat multidimensionnel, souvent confus, parfois émotionnel, un aperçu limpide, honnête et bien informé, ce livre fournit au lecteur une base solide pour former ses propres convictions
Arguing about justice : essays for Philippe Van Parijs by Bruce A Ackerman( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together fifty of today's finest thinkers. They were asked to let their imaginations run free to advance new ideas on a wide range of social and political issues. They did so as friends, on the occasion of Philippe Van Parijs's sixtieth birthday. Rather than restricting themselves to comments on his numerous writings, the authors engage with the topics on which he has focused his attention over the years, especially with the various dimensions of justice, its scope, and its demands. They discuss issues ranging from the fair distribution of marriage opportunities to the limits of argumentation in a democracy, the deep roots of inequality, the challenges to basic income and the requirements of linguistic justice. They provide ample food for thought for both academic and general readers
