Civil religion : a dialogue in the history of political philosophy by Ronald Beiner( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Civil Religion offers philosophical commentaries on more than twenty thinkers stretching from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. The book examines four important traditions within the history of modern political philosophy and delves into how each of them addresses the problem of religion. Two of these traditions pursue projects of domesticating religion. The civil religion tradition, principally defined by Machiavelli, Hobbes, and Rousseau, seeks to domesticate religion by putting it solidly in the service of politics. The liberal tradition pursues an alternative strategy of domestication by seeking to put as much distance as possible between religion and politics. Modern theocracy is a militant reaction against liberalism, and it reverses the relationship of subordination asserted by civil religion: it puts politics directly in the service of religion. Finally, a fourth tradition is defined by Nietzsche and Heidegger. Aspects of their thought are not just modern, but hyper-modern, yet they manifest an often-hysterical reaction against liberalism that is fundamentally shared with the theocratic tradition. Together, these four traditions compose a vital dialogue that carries us to the heart of political philosophy itself"--

Theorizing nationalism( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theorizing Nationalism directly addresses the normative dimensions of nationalism. Some of the themes it discusses are the following whether there is a "right" to collective self-determination, the relationship between nationalism and modernity, whether nationalism and liberalism can be reconciled, whether there is a theoretically legitimate distinction between so-called civic and ethnic versions of nationalism, and the "existential" attractiveness of nationalism."--Jacket
Liberalism, nationalism, citizenship : essays on the problem of political community by Ronald Beiner( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Liberals believe that the purpose of politics is to guarantee that individuals do not face unfair impediments in pursuing the lives they choose for themselves. Nationalists believe that the purpose of politics is to ensure that a people's sense of authentic nationhood wins full expression in powers of collective sovereignty or self-rule. Both of these forms of political commitment yield world-transforming political philosophies, but do either of these visions do adequate justice to a philosophically robust ideal of shared citizenship and civic membership?
Political philosophy : what it is and why it matters by Ronald Beiner( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is political philosophy? Ronald Beiner makes the case that it is centrally defined by supremely ambitious reflection on the ends of life. We pursue this reflection by exposing ourselves to, and participating in, a perennial dialogue among epic theorists who articulate grand visions of what constitutes the authentic good for human beings. Who are these epic theorists, and what are their strengths and weaknesses? Beiner selects a dozen leading candidates: Arendt, Oakeshott, Strauss, Lowith, Voegelin, Weil, Gadamer, Habermas, Foucault, MacIntyre, Rawls, and Rorty. In each case, he shows both why the political philosophies continue to be intellectually compelling and why they are problematic or can be challenged in various ways. In this sense, Political Philosophy attempts to draw up a balance sheet for political philosophy in the twentieth century, by identifying a canon of towering contributions and reviewing the extent to which they fulfill their intellectual aspirations

Judgment, imagination, and politics : themes from Kant and Arendt( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judgment, Imagination, and Politics brings together for the first time leading essays on the nature of judgment. Drawing from themes in Kant's Critique of Judgment and Hannah Arendt's discussion of judgment from Lectures on Kant's Political Philosophy, these essays deal with: the role of imagination in judgment; judgment as a distinct human faculty; the nature of judgment in law and politics; and the many puzzles that arise from the 'enlarged mentality, ' the capacity to consider the perspectives of others that aren't in Kant treated as essential to judgment

Conferencias sobre la filosofía politica de Kant by Hannah Arendt( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La última obra filosófica de Hannah Arendt era un proyecto en tres partes titulado La vida del espíritu. Por desgracia, Arendt sólo vivió para completar las dos primeras, El pensamiento y La voluntad. De la tercera, El juicio, se encontró una página con el título y dos citas, de Catón y de Goethe. El título sugiere que Arendt concibió la obra de forma bastante paralela a las tres Críticas kantianas. De hecho, durante la época de redacción de La vida del espíritu, pronunció un ciclo de conferencias sobre "la filosofía política de Kant" en las que la Crítica del juicio era el texto central. El presente volumen recoge las notas de Arendt para dichas conferencias, junto a otros textos suyos sobre el tema del juicio que aportan claves interpretativas sobre la posible dirección del pensamiento arendtiano en este ámbito."--Contratapa
Affinität wider Willen? : Hannah Arendt, Theodor W. Adorno und die Frankfurter Schule by Liliane Weissberg( )

4 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hannah Arendt und Theodor W. Adorno verband eine gegenseitige Abneigung, die auch zu einer gegenseitigen Ablehnung ihrer Schriften führte. Arendts Animosität erstreckte sich bald auch auf andere Mitglieder der Frankfurter Schule. Der Band beleuchtet dieses schwierige Verhältnis, wobei die Autoren auch auf Affinitäten stoßen. Im Fokus stehen: Unterschiede und Gemeinsamkeiten der politisch-philosophischen Theorien und Begriffe, das Verständnis des Judentums und der Ursachen des Antisemitismus, die Bedeutung des Werkes von Walter Benjami
