The Philosophical Contexts of Sartre's The Wall and Other Stories: Stories of Bad Faith

The Philosophical Contexts of Sartre's The Wall and Other Stories: Stories of Bad Faith by Kevin W. SweeneyThe Philosophical Contexts of The Wall and Other Stories presents a philosophical analysis of all five stories in Sartre??s short-story collection, concentrating on characters?? acts of bad faith. Kevin W. Sweeney argues that each of the five stories has its own philosophical problem that serves as the context for the narrative, and that Sartre constructs each story as a reply to the philosophical issue in the context and as support for his position on that issue.

Considerations on Representative Government

Considerations on Representative Government by John Stuart MillThe book presents the concept of representative government, the ideal form of government. Mill suggests that representative bodies such as parliaments and senates are best suited to be places of public debate on the various opinions held by the population and to act as watchdogs of the professionals who create and administer laws and policy.

Utilitarianism

Utilitarianism by John Stuart MillThe book explains what utilitarianism is, why it is the best theory of ethics, defends it against a wide range of criticisms and misunderstandings. Though heavily criticized both in Mill's lifetime and in the years since, Utilitarianism did a great deal to popularize utilitarian ethics and was 'the most influential philosophical articulation of a liberal humanistic morality that was produced in the nineteenth century.'

Chinese Alchemy: Taoism, the Power of Gold, and the Quest for Immortality

Chinese Alchemy: Taoism, the Power of Gold, and the Quest for Immortality by Jean Cooper

Here in one slender volume is a basic introduction to Chinese alchemy??"a tradition that dates back 5,000 years.

Chinese alchemy, largely associated with Taoism, has a recorded history of more than 2,000 years, but traditionally it goes back even further to nearly 3000 BC and the time of the Yellow Emperor. While Western alchemy was concerned with the search for spiritual and material gold, classic Taoist alchemy was a mystical quest for immortality with its aim being union with the Absolute.

Jean Cooper describes the history and development of Taoist alchemy, compares it to similar traditions...

In Vol. 1 we enter the mind boggling world of gender sculpting and why this social engineering has been pushed on all young people globally....

Hunting Girls: Sexual Violence from The Hunger Games to Campus Rape

Hunting Girls: Sexual Violence from The Hunger Games to Campus Rape by Kelly OliverKatniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games), Bella Swan (Twilight), Tris Prior (Divergent), and other strong and resourceful characters have decimated the fairytale archetype of the helpless girl waiting to be rescued. Giving as good as they get, these young women access reserves of aggression to liberate themselves—but who truly benefits? By meeting violence with violence, are women turning victimization into entertainment? Are they playing out old fantasies, institutionalizing their abuse?

In Hunting Girls, Kelly Oliver examines popular culture??s fixation on representing young women as predators and...

Founding Acts: Constitutional Origins in a Democratic Age

Founding Acts: Constitutional Origins in a Democratic Age by Serdar Tekin

Founding Acts argues that how constitutions are made (or their pedigree) is morally and politically as significant as what they are made of (or their content). On this view, democratic constitution-making is not only about making a democratic constitution, but also about making it democratically.

The Tyranny of the Ideal: Justice in a Diverse Society

The Tyranny of the Ideal: Justice in a Diverse Society by Gerald Gaus

In his provocative new book, The Tyranny of the Ideal, Gerald Gaus lays out a vision for how we should theorize about justice in a diverse society. Gaus shows how free and equal people, faced with intractable struggles and irreconcilable conflicts, might share a common moral life shaped by a just framework. He argues that if we are to take diversity seriously and if moral inquiry is sincere about shaping the world, then the pursuit of idealized and perfect theories of justice??"essentially, the entire production of theories of justice that has dominated political philosophy for the past forty...

Theory of Identities

Theory of Identities by Fran?ois LaruelleFrançois Laruelle proposes a theory of identity rooted in scientific notions of symmetry and chaos, emancipating thought from the philosophical paradigm of Being and reconnecting it with the real world. Unlike most contemporary philosophers, Laruelle does not believe language, history, and the world shape identity but that identity determines our relation to these phenomena.

Both critical and constructivist, Theory of Identities finds fault with contemporary philosophy??s reductive relation to science and its attachment to notions of singularity, difference, and multiplicity, which extends this...

Design: The Invention of Desire

Design: The Invention of Desire by Jessica HelfandDesign has always prided itself on being relevant to the world it serves, but interest in design was once limited to a small community of design professionals. Today, books on "design thinking" are best sellers, and computer and Web-based tools have expanded the definition of who practices design. Looking at objects, letterforms, experiences, and even theatrical performances, award-winning author Jessica Helfand asserts that understanding design's purpose is more crucial than ever. Design is meaningful not because it is pretty but because it is an intrinsically humanist discipline, tethered...

Chan brings a fresh approach toward resolving many of the problems that have occupied philosophers of action for almost a century.

Practical Environmental Ethics

Practical Environmental Ethics by A. Pablo IannoneThis essential volume proposes a new approach to environmental ethics and to environmental policy making in particular. Practical Environmental Ethics distinguishes between cases in which entire ecosystems are at risk, threatening entire societies where collective consequences take precedence and cases in which whole ecosystems are not at risk where individual rights or duties take precedence. In doing this, Iannone discusses environmental controversies not only philosophically, but in the complex contexts at work within policy- and decision-making communities.

In Praise of Forgetting: Historical Memory and Its Ironies

In Praise of Forgetting: Historical Memory and Its Ironies by David RieffThe conventional wisdom about historical memory is summed up in George Santayana's celebrated phrase, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." Today, the consensus that it is moral to remember, immoral to forget, is nearly absolute. And yet is this right?

David Rieff, an independent writer who has reported on bloody conflicts in Africa, the Balkans, and Central Asia, insists that things are not so simple. He poses hard questions about whether remembrance ever truly has, or indeed ever could, "inoculate" the present against repeating the crimes of the past. He argues that...
