Multikulturalismus Und Political Correctness in Den USA

Author: Mathias Hildebrandt
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 3531148761
Release Date: 2005-11-25
Genre: Political Science

Die Debatte um Multikulturalismus und Political Correctness dominierte in den 90er Jahren die öffentliche Auseinandersetzung in den USA und prägte die amerikanische politische Kultur nachhaltig. Ihre Erschütterungen reichten bis Europa und Deutschland. Mathias Hildebrandt berücksichtigt nicht nur die historische Tiefendimension dieser US-amerikanischen Selbstverständnisdebatte anhand der Rekonstruktion der zentralen Kampfbegriffe, sondern arbeitet auch die wesentlichen philosophischen und theoretischen Konzepte des postmodernen Multikulturalismus und dessen politische Ordnungskonzeption für die USA heraus. Neben diesen Dimensionen verfolgt der Autor die Debatte in die umstrittenen Policy-Felder, wie Schul- und akademische Bildungspolitik, Auseinandersetzung sowie Meinungsfreiheit und Sexual Harassment ebenso wie Affirmative Action Politik, und analysiert deren strukturelle und verfassungsrechtliche Aspekte.

Must We Defend Nazis

Author: Richard Delgado
Publisher: NYU Press
ISBN: 9780814721049
Release Date: 1999-11-01
Genre: Law

In Must We Defend Nazis?, Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic set out to liberate speech from its current straight-jacket. Over the past hundred years, almost all of American law has matured from the mechanical jurisprudence approach--which held that cases could be solved on the basis of legal rules and logic alone--to that of legal realism--which maintains that legal reasoning must also take into account social policy, common sense, and experience. But in the area of free speech, the authors argue, such archaic formulas as the prohibition against content regulation, the maxim that the cure for bad speech is more speech, and the speech/act distinction continue to reign, creating a system which fails to take account of the harms speech can cause to disempowered, marginalized people. Focusing on the issues of hate-speech and pornography, this volume examines the efforts of reformers to oblige society and law to take account of such harms. It contends that the values of free expression and equal dignity stand in reciprocal relation. Speech in any sort of meaningful sense requires equal dignity, equal access, and equal respect on the parts of all of the speakers in a dialogue; free speech, in other words, presupposes equality. The authors argue for a system of free speech which takes into account nuance, context-sensitivity, and competing values such as human dignity and equal protection of the law.
