Concerned primarily with relations between Protestant Christianity and the main currents in secular intellectual life over the course of the past century, the essays in this volume disclose the persistence, complexity, and fragility of religious thought in the new university dominated intellectual environment of the modern period. Arguing that three important patterns of response emerged from the challenges to religious belief posed by nineteenth-century science and scholarship--the traditionalist, the naturalist, and the modernist responses--the volume is organized to bring out the continuing interplay of reciprocal influences among them. The contributors show that a dialectic between naturalistic and religious points of view has contributed significantly to the character and style of modern American thought. --from publisher description

The State and social investigation in Britain and the United States( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When politicians argue over the fashioning and refashioning of social and economic policies, they draw on a reservoir of evidence and theory generated by complex processes of social investigation. Much of that investigation has been undertaken either by or for the purposes of the state. The very meanings of terms such as poverty, unemployment, and inequality, as well as the data about them, have been shaped in inquiries like those of Britain's many royal commissions on the conditions of the poor and the United States's famous Coleman report on race and education. The State and Social Investigation in Britain and the United States addresses the historical development of the knowledge base on which the public policies of the democratic state depend. The book results from a Woodrow Wilson Center project on the growth of knowledge and the rise of the modern state and is a companion volume to The State and Economic Knowledge: The American and British Experiences (1990), edited by Mary O. Furner and Barry Supple. This comparative study extends from the Enlightenment origins of the impulse to base legislation on scientific knowledge to the twentieth-century development of specialized institutions and professions engaged in social investigation and public policymaking. It probes investigators' biases and omissions as well as their strengths as factors shaping social learning. It illuminates the vital link between social empiricism and the late nineteenth-century emergence of the new liberalism both in Britain and in the United States. And it ponders the impact on social investigation and social policy today of relativism, antistatism, devolution, and privatization as these currents have developed in both societies since the 1970s. Scholars, advanced students, and practitioners interested in social and economic policy, political and welfare history, and modern social thought in Britain and the United States will find in this book an indispensable guide to the history of social policy and investigation
The crisis of authority in Catholic modernity( Book )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One deep problem facing the Catholic church is the question of how its teaching authority is understood today. It is fairly clear that, while Rome continues to teach as if its authority were unchanged from the days before Vatican II (1962-65), the majority of Catholics - within the first-world church, at least - take a far more independent line, and increasingly understand themselves (rather than the church) as the final arbiters of decision-making, especially on ethical questions. This collection of essays explores the historical background and present ecclesial situation, explaining the dram

The communitarian persuasion by Philip Selznick( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Communitarian Persuasion is a brief, thoughtful, readable argument for communitarian political philosophy by one of the principal thinkers of the movement." "The communitarian movement aims to balance the individual liberties prized by modernity with the health of the community in which those liberties are exercised. The movement arose in 1980s America - a society asserting, on the left, personal self-realization, and, on the right, unrestrained capitalism and distrust of government, both sides assailing social institutions." "Philip Selznick's new book shows how the communitarian response to such pressures is not opposition but integration."--Jacket
