Contemporary Political Philosophy

Author: Keith Graham
Publisher: CUP Archive
ISBN: 0521287839
Release Date: 1982-06-24
Genre: Philosophy

First published in 1982, this volume is a collection of original essays by young British philosophers reflecting the state of political philosophy. For many years contemporary political philosophy could with justice have been accused of triviality and sterility, but by the early 1980s the substantive and normative questions were firmly back at the centre of debate - as this volume demonstrates. It falls into three parts. In the first the essays examine aspects of the conception of human nature that must underlie political beliefs - in particular the vital notions of interest and personhood; in part II they evaluate different and supposedly conflicting political ideals - liberty and equality, individual rights and socialism; and in part III explore the bases of acceptable forms of political organisation - where political obedience does not reduce to moral obligation and where genuine freedom of expression is possible. The essays do not stem from a single political standpoint, although all are written from within the analytical tradition. They go to the roots of these perennial issues with arguments that are clear and forthright, and as a collection they will serve as both an important addition and a bracing introduction to the subject.

An Introduction to Political Philosophy Routledge Revivals

Author: A. R. M. Murray
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781136971143
Release Date: 2010-01-14
Genre: Philosophy

First published in 1953, this seminal introduction to political philosophy is intended for both the student of political theory and for the general reader. After an introduction which explains the nature and purpose of philosophy, Dr Murray provides a critical examination of the principle theories advanced by political philosophers from Plato to Marx, paying special attention to contemporary issues. The book also makes an attempt to define the essential issues of philosophical significance in contemporary politics, with special reference to the conflict between political authority and individual rights, and to show how the different moral assumptions underlying authoritarian and democratic systems of government are ultimately based upon different theories of logic.
