Forgiveness and mercy by Jeffrie G Murphy( Book )

33 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the degree to which certain moral and legal doctrines are rooted in specific passions that are then institutionalized in the form of criminal law. A philosophical analysis is developed of the following questions: When, if ever, should hatred be overcome by sympathy or compassion? What are forgiveness and mercy and to what degree do they require--both conceptually and morally--the overcoming of certain passions and the motivation by other passions? If forgiveness and mercy indeed are moral virtues, what role, if any, should they play in the law?
Hobbes and the social contract tradition by Jean Hampton( Book )

38 editions published between 1986 and 1999 in English and held by 883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This major study of Hobbes' political philosophy draws on recent developments in game and decision theory to explore whether the thrust of the argument in Leviathan, that it is in the interests of the people to create a ruler with absolute power, can be shown to be cogent. Professor Hampton has written a book of vital importance to political philosophers, political and social scientists, and intellectual historians
Varieties of feminist liberalism by Amy R Baehr( )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume present versions of feminism that are explicitly liberal, or versions of liberalism that are explicitly feminist. By bringing together some of the most respected and well-known scholars in mainstream political philosophy today, Amy R. Baehr challenges the reader to reconsider the dominant view that liberalism and feminism are 'incompatible.'
The Idea of democracy( Book )

24 editions published between 1986 and 1999 in English and Italian and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the wake of the recent creation of new democratic regimes around the world, political theorists have begun to rethink the nature and justification of this form of government. This collection of essays contains work by a group of prominent philosophers, economists, political scientists and legal theorists, all of whom address a variety of fundamental questions about democracy: How effective is it? How stable can it be in a pluralist society? Does it deserve its current popularity? Can it successfully guide a socialist society? With its interdisciplinary focus, this volume should be of particular interest to political philosophers, political scientists, economists, and legal theorists
The authority of reason by Jean E Hampton( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Authority of Reason argues against much contemporary orthodoxy in philosophy and the social sciences by showing why objectivity in the domain of ethics is really no different from the objectivity of scientific knowledge. Many philosophers and social scientists have challenged the idea that we act for objectively authoritative reasons. They have argued that there is no place for such objectively authoritative reasons in a scientific account of the world. For them, the only acceptable reasons are those that operate through a person's contingent desires and preferences. Jean Hampton takes up the challenge by undermining two central assumptions of this contemporary orthodoxy - that one can understand instrumental reasons without appeal to objective authority, and that the adoption of the scientific worldview requires no such appeal. Rejection of these assumptions opens the way for a post-naturalist theory of the objective authority of reasons. In The Authority of Reason, Hampton examines moral realism, the general nature of reason and norms, internalism and externalism, instrumental reasoning, and the expected utility model of practical reasoning. Jean Hampton's untimely death in 1996 prevented her from completing two of the chapters, which have been left in the form of sketches. The work has been edited for publication by Richard Healey. Even in this slightly incomplete form, the book will prove to be a seminal work in the theory of rationality and will be read by a broad swath of philosophers and social scientists

The intrinsic worth of persons : contractarianism in moral and political philosophy by Jean Hampton( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contractarianism in some form has been at the center of recent debates in moral and political philosophy. Jean Hampton was one of the most gifted philosophers involved in these debates and pro-vided both important criticisms of prominent contractarian theories and powerful defenses and applications of the core ideas of con-tractarianism. In these essays, she brought her distinctive approach, animated by concern for the intrinsic worth of persons, to bear on topics such as guilt, punishment, self-respect, family relations, and the maintenance and justification of the state. Edited by Daniel Farnham, this collection is an essential contribution to understanding the problems and prospects of contractarianism in moral, legal, and political philosophy."--Jacket
