Rethinking the school : subjectivity, bureaucracy, criticism by Ian Hunter( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educationalists have long worked to democratise our school system and purge traces of its religious origins. Rethinking the School shows that these efforts have been in vain. The bureaucratic organisation of schooling is here to stay, and Christian moral discipline is an integral part of the school as we know it. Hunter argues that both liberal and Marxian theory ignore the historical reality of the school. He does not see the school as the failed attempt to realise principles of social equality, complete personal development and intellectual enlightenment. Rather, he sees the modern school as an improvised apparatus for the training of good citizens and the guidance of souls. Rethinking the School is one of the first major applications of Foucault's genealogical method to the school system, and will be widely debated by educationalists, policy-makers and those interested in the interaction of government and subjectivity
Rival enlightenments : civil and metaphysical philosophy in early modern Germany by Ian Hunter( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rival Enlightenments is a major reinterpretation of early modern German intellectual history. Ian Hunter treats the civil philosophy of Pufendorf and Thomasius and the metaphysical philosophy of Leibniz and Kant as rival intellectual cultures or paideiai. Combining careful scholarship with vivid polemic, Hunter presents insights for philosophers and historians alike
Natural law and civil sovereignty : moral right and state authority in early modern political thought( Book )

16 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early modern natural law theorists were confronted by a single crucial problem: how to provide a new, secular legitimacy for civil authority under circumstances in which confessional conflict had rendered the standard religious justifications inoperable or suspect. In Natural Law and Civil Sovereignty fifteen leading historians of political thought provide fresh accounts of how early modern writers rose to this challenge. In addition to offering novel treatments of figures well known to English readers (Grotius, Hobbes, Locke, Cumberland), the chapters also reveal the crucial role played by lesser-known writers (Althusius, Pufendorf, Thomasius, Barbeyrac, Burlarnaqui), paying particular attention to the circumstance their doctrines were intended to address and to the milieux in which they were disseminated, in the context of today's fears and hopes for the demise of the sovereign state, this book provides a series of timely insights into the early modern struggle that gave birth to the modern concept of sovereignty - the struggle to legitimate a desacralised political order."--BOOK JACKET.

On the duty of man and citizen according to natural law by Samuel Pufendorf( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Whole Duty of Man (1691), first published in Latin in 1673 as De officio hominis et civis, Pufendorf elaborates his conception of ethics, which separates civil duties from religious hopes. Unlike many Christian political theologians of the seventeenth century, Pufendorf refused to ground his natural law ethics in the ideal of human perfection or holiness; rather, he grounded them in the need for sociability, which he regarded as simply a means to an end - that is, human self-preservation and civil peace. Like Grotius and Hobbes, Pufendorf was responding to the religious wars that wracked early modern Europe by constructing a version of natural law capable of defending the civil state against the religious and moral delegitimation wielded by international Catholicism and Protestant zealots."--Jacket

The secularisation of the confessional state : the political thought of Christian Thomasius by Ian Hunter( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christian Thomasius (1655-1728) was a tireless campaigner against the political enforcement of religion in the early modern confessional state. In a whole series of combative disputations - against heresy and witchcraft prosecutions, and in favour of religious toleration - Thomasius battled to lay the intellectual groundwork for the separation of church and state and the juridical basis for pluralistic societies. Ian Hunter departs from the usual view of Thomasius as a natural law moral philosopher. In addition to investigating his anti-scholastic cultural politics, Hunter discusses Thomasius' work in public and church law, particularly his disputations arguing for the toleration of heretics, providing a revealing comparison with Locke's arguments on the same topic. If Locke sought to base toleration in the subjective rights protecting Christian citizens against an intolerant state, Thomasius grounded it in the state's duty to impose toleration as an obligation on intolerant citizens"--Publisher description
