Deliberative democracy : essays on reason and politics by James Bohman( )

33 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 2,789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The anthology opens with four key essays - by Jon Elster, Jurgen Habermas, Joshua Cohen, and John Rawls - that helped establish the current inquiry into deliberative models of democracy. The nine essays that follow represent the latest efforts of leading democratic theorists to tackle various problems of deliberative democracy. All the contributions address tensions that arise between reason and politics in a democracy inspired by the ideal of achieving reasoned agreement among free and equal citizens. Although the authors approach the topic of deliberation from different perspectives, they all aim to provide a theoretical basis for a more robust democratic practice
Public deliberation : pluralism, complexity, and democracy by James Bohman( )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 2,486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bohman builds on early Critical Theory and on the recent work of Jurgen Habermas and John Rawls (while taking into consideration criticisms of their work) to create a picture of a richer democratic practice based on the public reasoning of citizens. Starting with an account of how deliberation actually works to promote agreement and cooperation, he develops a realistic model of deliberation by gradually introducing and analyzing the major tests facing deliberative democracy: cultural pluralism, social inequalities, social complexity, and community-wide biases and ideologies. The result is a new understanding of the ways in which public deliberation can be extended to meet the needs of modern societies
Democracy across borders : from Dêmos to Dêmoi by James Bohman( )

26 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 1,994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today democracy is both exalted as the "best means to realize human rights" and seen as weakened because of globalization and delegation of authority beyond the nation-state. In this book, James Bohman argues that democracies face a period of renewal and transformation and that democracy itself needs redefinition according to a new transnational ideal. Democracy, he writes, should be rethought in the plural; it should no longer be understood as rule by the people (demos), singular, with a specific territorial identification and connotation, but as rule by peoples (demoi), across national boundaries. Bohman shows that this new conception of transnational democracy requires reexamination of such fundamental ideas as the people, the public, citizenship, human rights, and federalism, and he argues that it offers a feasible approach to realizing democracy in a globalized world."--Jacket
Perpetual peace : essays on Kant's cosmopolitan ideal( )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1795 Immanuel Kant published an essay entitled "Toward Perpetual Peace: A Philosophical Sketch". In the essay, Kant argues that it is humankind's immediate duty to solve the problem of violence. The essays in this text argue that history has both confirmed and outstripped Kant's prognoses

New philosophy of social science : problems of indeterminacy by James Bohman( Book )

33 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is without equal in reflecting the actual state of debate in the various social sciences. The wide range of issues considered and the reliance on case studies from the actual practice of social inquiry make this the best available text on the subject."--Thomas McCarthy, Northwestern University "A first-rate overview of and contribution to contemporary debates in the philosophy of the social sciences ... Like philosophers of natural science, Bohman places more emphasis than his predecessors on careful examination of successful research, more emphasis on what presuppositions researchers bring to their work, and less emphasis on demarcating 'good' from 'bad' science by appeal to first principles ..." -- D. Christie, University of New Hampshire, Choice
The Interpretive turn : philosophy, science, culture by David R Hiley( Book )

17 editions published between 1991 and 2019 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This wide-ranging and provocative book responds to a debate that is radically changing the relationships between the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Many now agree that foundationalism in philosophy and positivism in science have been overturned, and that philosophy, having found that its "linguistic turn" led to a dead end, must now take an "interpretive turn." In philosophy, the sciences, and such diverse fields as anthropology, law, and social history, the turn to interpretation has challenged many fundamental assumptions, forcing scholars to contest the status of knowledge claims. Are interpretations true? Is interpretation universal? How can interpretive claims be justified rationally? Fifteen new essays representing both preeminent thinkers in these debates and notable younger scholars here explore such questions. Individual essays address aspects of the relationship between the human and the natural sciences, epistemological and normative issues in interpretation, and key topics in a variety of disciplines

Cosmopolitismo : democracia en la era de la globalización( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El derrumbe del socialismo, el resurgimiento de diversas formas de nacionalismo, el despliegue de guerras y conflictos religiosos y étnicos de mayor o menor intensidad, los fenómenos de inmigración masiva desde los países más pobres hacia aquellos otros en los que se han concentrado la riqueza y el bienestar, el dramático abismo entre países industirales y postindustriales, por un lado, y países en los que amplias capas de la población apenas sobreviven por debajo de la línea de la pobreza, por el otro, todo ello en el marco de un proceso de globalización que parece desarrollarse sin regulación alguna, caracterizan la escena internacional contemporánea y constituyen a la vez un motivo de desasosiego y preocupación, pero también un desafío para la filosofía hoy en día. Es en este marco que puede comprenderse la relevancia de una corriente dentro de la filosofía política y la filosofía del derecho contemporáneas a la que se identifica bajo la denominación genérica de "cosmopolitismo". Es a ella que están dedicados los ensayos reunidos en este volumen
