Herder on nationality, humanity, and history by F. M Barnard( )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 1,827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The core of J.G. Herder's philosophy of nationalism lies in the conviction that human creativity must be embedded in the culture of a particular communal language. While he acknowledged that this cultural particular must be integrated into a more universal humanity, he insisted that each culture should preserve its incommensurable distinctiveness. He also called for a new method of enquiry regarding history, one that demands empathetic sensitivity toward the uniquely individual while realizing that there are few gains without losses. F.M. Barnard shows that Herder anticipated modern theories of the dynamics of cultures and traditions through the problematic interplay of persistence and change and that his speculations on cultural and political pluralism, on language as a democratic bond, and on the possible fusion of communitarian and liberal dimensions of public life remain relevant to contemporary debates."--Jacket
Democratic legitimacy : plural values and political power by F. M Barnard( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 1,808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Democratic Legitimacy Frederick Barnard argues that political accountability is as important to the democratic ethic as political participation - and equally in need of reappraisal and invigoration. Unless its importance is recognized, accountability, like participation, will remain an idea that is easy to praise but difficult to incorporate into political life. Barnard demonstrates that in a democracy accountability is more than damage control and must be part of considerations in the political forum before decisions are made, not just after the fact when trying to assign blame." "Barnard argues that Western democracy, if it is to continue to exist as a legitimate political system, must maintain the integrity of its application of performative principles. Consequently, if both social and political democracy are legitimate goals, limitations designed to curb excessive political power may also be applicable in containing excessive economic power. Barnard stresses that whatever steps are taken to augment civic reciprocity, the observance and self-imposition of publicly recognized standards is vital." "Democratic Legitimacy will appeal to political scientists and philosophers, as well as specialists in democratic theory."--Jacket
Social and political bonds : a mosaic of contrast and convergence by F. M Barnard( )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is it possible to bridge the gap between the secrecy of the state and the people who are governed? F.M. Barnard argues that mediation between people and purposes, parts and wholes, voluntariness and coercion, not only can but must occur in a fair society and outlines a range of strategies that can be used to join seemingly irreconcilable social and political contexts." "Warning specifically against official moralistic rhetoric, ignoring civic demands, and hidden acts of power by anonymous governmental bureaucracies and lobbyists, Barnard's approach blurs the boundaries between specialized fields of study, revealing the degree to which individual choice influences political force. He also shows how any attempt to achieve a balance between the state and society requires developed political judgement and a measured view of what can be politically attained and demanded."--Jacket
Reason and self-enactment in history and politics : themes and voices of modernity by F. M Barnard( )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"F. M. Barnard stresses that unitary truths and moral perfectionism are not the concerns of politics. Reappraising basic political principles and constructs, he argues for bridging differences among a plurality of truths and forming practical judgments by the cultivation of a sense of situational appropriateness."--Jacket

Pluralism, socialism, and political legitimacy : reflections on opening up communism by F. M Barnard( Book )

21 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The processes of transition from communist rule in Eastern Europe and the dilemmas of reform in the Soviet Union invite reflection on the role of pluralism in rendering a political system legitimate and democratic. In this book, Frederick M. Barnard examines differing conceptions of political pluralism, focusing on the question of how political differentiation can evolve and flourish without leading to crippling political fragmentation. He emphasizes the necessary balance between political differentiation and societal cohesion. The book uses certain proposals put forward by pluralist reformers during the Prague Spring as a point of departure in examining broader questions about socialism and pluralism. These proposals outlined a unique form of pluralist socialism. In reflecting on them, Professor Barnard takes up a number of issues fundamental not only to socialist theory but to political theory generally, such as the political conversion of doctrinal "isms" and, in this context, the nature and role of political ideology; the relation of the state to society; and the importance of political accountability. He examines the ways in which Czechoslovak pluralist ideas differed from others advanced at the time in Poland and Yugoslavia as well as from those common in Western democracies, and these differences clarify opposing arguments about the meaning and method of democratizing society, such as the question of whether democratization requires the deprofessionalization of politics if not the total withering away of the state. Throughout the book, the author explores the political-philosophical as well as the procedural-democratic problems involved in legitimizing socialism as a pluralist political system, and, in so doing, also throws new light on central concerns in Western political debate. This is a clearly written exposition of a complex set of issues that should be of interest to political philosophers as well as to scholars and students of Eastern European and Soviet political theory

11 editions published in 1988 in English and German and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unity, plurality & politics : essays in honour of F.M. Barnard by J. M Porter( Book )

9 editions published between 1986 and 2019 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1986. Nations have a unity often described as 'cultural'; and within them there are divergences some of which are termed 'political'. But culture and politics do not, therefore, comprise two wholly distinct zones or orders of experience, the one marked by unity, the other by plurality. Unity and plurality interpenetrate. These insights, which derive from the thinking of Herder, have been fundamental to the work of F.M. Barnard. In this volume a number of scholars contribute, in Barnardian vein, reflections on the tensions between unity and plurality in the history of ideas. The central underlying question is, in essence, 'what is the context of political life?' The question remains of more importance than any single answer
