Product picture for Rights as Relational Properties: In Defense of the Classical Beneficiary Theory of Rights (Ideen & Argumente) by Markus Stepanians
Book › Kindle ebook


This book is a defense of the classical beneficiary theory of rights. Its heart forms the idea that rights assure goods to their bearers by implying duties for others. This theory has come under attack from two sides. Firstly, its traditional rival, the “will” theory of rights conceives of the exercise of a right as a manifestation of the right-holders autonomy. However, recently a new challenge arose through the “new” beneficiary theory of rights developed by Neil MacCormick and Joseph Raz. This book is an attempt to show that, correctly understood, the classical...

Ebook cover from Philosophies of Defeat: The Jargon of Finitude by Bruno Bosteels
Book › Kindle ebook
How radical thought has internalized the experience of defeat

A rising star of contemporary critical theory offers an expansive critique on a prominent tradition of thought, 'the jargon of finitude.' Associated with Martin Heidegger and Jacques Derrida, over the past few decades this tradition has been able to bolster its credentials as an indispensable contribution in the rethinking of the Left. However, rather than constituting a radical leftist opening in contemporary political thought, these are in many ways philosophies of defeat. Bosteels exmines the paradoxes inherent in...

Ebook cover from Disgust by Chris Turner
Book › Kindle ebook
A historical, philosophical detective story into what makes us human

What does our reaction to the "unmentionable," the "indescribable," and the "repellant" tell us about ourselves? Disgust was once considered our primary emotion, and as a result has fascinated philosophers, scientists, anthropologists and psychologists for centuries.

In a series of colorful scenarios Christopher Turner explores our obsession with repulsion through some of the greatest figures of the modern age. From a dinner party with Immanuel Kant and Charles Darwin's stomach complaints, to how...

Ebook cover from Redistribution or Recognition?: A Political-Philosophical Exchange by Nancy Fraser
Book › Kindle ebook
“Recognition” has become a veritable keyword of our time, but its relation to “redistribution” remains undertheorized. This volume remedies the lacuna by staging a sustained debate between two philosophers, one North American, the other European, who hold different views of the matter. Highly attuned to contemporary politics, the exchange between Nancy Fraser and Axel Honneth constitutes a rigorous dialogue on moral philosophy, social theory, and the best way to conceptualize capitalist society.

Ebook cover from Philosophy and Revolution: From Hegel to Sartre, and from Marx to Mao by Raya Dunayevskaya
Book › Kindle ebook
Marx worked out as a totally new relationship of philosophy to revolution. Today's revolutionaries turn their backs on this at their peril.

Few thought systems have been as distorted and sometimes misconstrued as those of Marx and Hegel. Philosophy and Revolution, presented here in a new edition, attempts to save Marx from interpretations which restrict the revolutionary significance of the philosophy behind his theory. Developing her breakthrough on Hegel's Absolute Idea, Raya Dunayevskaya, who died in the June of 1987, aims at a total liberation of the human person-not only from...

Ebook cover from The Radical Philosophy of Rights by Costas Douzinas
Book › Paperback
In advanced western societies, human rights have mutated, expanded and turned into a vernacular touching every aspect of social life. They are seen as the key concept of morals and politics, as well as in the forging of individual and collective identities. They are the ideology after ‘the end of ideologies’ – the only values left after ‘the end of history’. But although rights appear as the only game in town, the response of the left to the rights revolution has been muted and unsure. Classical Marxist critiques of (natural) rights have made the left justly suspicious, and this is...
Book cover from Rewriting Contemporary Political Theory with Plato and Aristotle: An Essay on Eudaimonic Polity by Paul Schollmeier
Book › Hardcover
Many contemporary philosophers develop political theories in an attempt to justify the societies that we currently live in. But the distribution of wealth in our societies today is becoming ever more polarized. Can these philosophers offer theories that are truly just?

Paul Schollmeier takes us back to ancient political philosophy in order to present an original theory of what a society in our era ought to be and to offer a cogent critique of contemporary theories both liberal and libertarian. He adapts the ancient principle of happiness found in Plato and Aristotle to introduce us to...
