One of the most expansive volumes in the NOMOS series to date, Theory and Practice will be of interest to philosophers, lawyers, and social scientists from a wide range of disciplines
Political order( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is required to create and sustain a political order is debated as intensively today as it has ever been. Constitutions are being written and rewritten in many parts of the world, a great many possibilities are being explored, and much that matters deeply to millions of people hangs on the results. In the eighteen chapters, all previously unpublished, that make up the present volume, major scholars address some of the most pressing questions about political order. Under what conditions do we get political order rather than political chaos? How is political order sustained once it has been created? Do constitutions and electoral systems matter, and if so how much? Is there one best type of political order, or, if not, what is the range of viable possibilities and how should they be evaluated?
Toleration and its limits by American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toleration has a rich tradition in Western political philosophy. It is, after all, one of the defining topics of political philosophy - historically pivotal in the development of modern liberalism, prominent in the writings of such canonical figures as John Locke and John Stuart Mill, and central to our understanding of the idea of a society in which individuals have the right to live their own lives by their own values, left alone by the state so long as they respect the similar interests of others." "Toleration and Its Limits explores the philosophical nuances of the concept of toleration and its scope in contemporary liberal democratic societies. Editors Melissa S. Williams and Jeremy Waldron carefully compiled essays that address the tradition's key historical figures; its role in the development and evolution of Western political theory; its relation to morality, liberalism, and identity; and its limits and dangers."--Jacket
The Rule of law by Ian Shapiro( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the sprawling remnants of the Soviet empire to the southern tip of Africa, attempts are underway to replace arbitrary political regimes with governments constrained by the rule of law. This ideal which subordinates the wills of individuals, social movements--and even, sometimes, democratically elected majorities--to the requirements of law, is here explored by leading legal and political thinkers. Part I of The Rule of Law examines the interplay of democracy and the rule of law, while Part II focusses on the centuries-old debate about the meaning of the rule of law itself. Part III t
Child, family, and state( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emerged from a group of papers and commentaries presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy in September 1999, held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association in Atlanta, Georgia"--Preface
Moral and political education( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the proper aims of education in a liberal democracy? The essayists in this volume bring philosophical, political, and legal reflection to bear on the practical questions of how education should be changed for the 21st century
Humanitarian intervention( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, and Kosovo. All are examples where humanitarian intervention has been called into action. This timely and important new volume explores the legal and moral issues that emerge when one state uses military force to protect innocent people from violence perpetrated or permitted by the government of another. Humanitarian intervention can be seen as fulfilling a moral duty to protect, but it is also subject to misuse as an excuse for imperialism in violation of international lay."--Jacket
Political exclusion and domination by American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The contributors to this volume explore the concepts of exclusion and domination from a wide array of theoretical approaches - liberal and republican, feminist and pluralist. They address topics ranging from racial segregation to criminal sanctions, from the role of the political philosopher to the instruments of genocide. They disagree - sometimes mildly and sometimes profoundly - over how we should construe the forms of exclusion and domination that most command our attention. Ultimately, these authors shed important light on the meaning of justice and injustice in contemporary society."--Jacket
Moral universalism and pluralism by American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moral universalism is the idea that some system of ethics applies to all people regardless of race, color, nationality, religion, or culture. The contributors to this latest volume in the NOMOS series investigate the idea that, far from denying the existence of pluralities, moral universalism presupposes them. At the same time, the search for universally valid principles of morality is deeply challenged by diversity. The fact of pluralism presses us to explore how universalist principles interact with ethical, political, and social particularisms." "These essays bring philosophical, legal, and political perspectives to bear on core questions: Which forms of pluralism are conceptually compatible with moral universalism, and which ones can be accommodated in a politically stable way? Can pluralism generate innovations in understandings of moral duty? How is convergence on the validity of legal and moral authority possible in circumstances of pluralism? As the contributors to the book demonstrate in a wide variety of ways, these normative, conceptual, and political questions deeply intertwine."--Jacket
Loyalty by Sanford Levinson( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring essays by scholars working in a variety of subjects, [this book] presents diverse perspectives on dilemmas posed by potential conflicts between loyalties to specific institutions or professional roles and more universalistic conceptions of moral duty. Beings with a philosophical exploration of theories of loyalty, both Eastern and Western, then moves on to examine several problematic situations in which loyalty is often a factor: partisan politics, the armed forces, and lawyer-client relationships"--Publisher description
Transitional justice by American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Criminal tribunals, truth commissions, reparations, apologies, and memorializations are characteristic instruments in transitions from authoritarianism to democracy, from civil war to peace, and from state-sponsored extra-legal violence to a rights-respecting rule of law. Over the last several decades, their growing use has established transitional justice as a body of both normative theory and institutionalized practice, developing standards for judging transitional societies' efforts to address the wrongs of the past and to lay foundations for more legitimate political and legal order. In Transitional Justice a group of leading scholars in philosophy, law, and political science settle some of the key theoretical debates over the meaning of transitional justice while opening up new ones. By engaging both theorists and empirical social scientists in the analysis of the defining issues of transitional justice, Transitional Justice also illuminates the challenges of making strong empirical claims about the impact of transitional institutions"--P.
