9780198277248: Contemporary Political Philosophy: An Introduction

This incisive overview provides a lucid introduction to the major schools of thought which dominate contemporary debates in political philosophy. Offering a critical appraisal of utilitarianism, liberal equality, libertarianism, Marxism, communitarianism, and feminism, Kymlicka argues that these philosophies can best be viewed as various interpretations of the principal that all people should be treated as equals.

About the Author:


Will Kymlicka is Professor of Philosophy at Queens University, Canada

Review:

`Review of second edition:

'There is an effortless command of a range of arguments and theories, comprehensive and informed knowledge of the relevant sources, and a narrative which is highly accessible and at the same time organises the material intelligently. Kymlicka's own views are expressed but in a way that does not do
a disservice to those he criticises. This is a fine example of an introductory text which does not mute its authors stance but which benefits from his partisan participation in the debates''
Dr David Archard, University of St Andrews

`Review of second edition:

'Kymlicka has an exceptional ability to present difficult material in an accessible manner that nevertheless allows the reader to understand why the issue is complex and why it matters. The chapters are clearly written, pitched at the right level, and cover the territory''
Dr Matt Matravers, University of York

Review of second edition:

'(The) changes make this edition sill more attractive and useful than the first. Its depth, lucidity and rigour mark it out as one of the better introductions on the market for anyone who wishes seriously to engage with the important recent debates within contemporary liberal theory. It stands out
as that rare introductory book that offers the hard analytical work required if one is really to get to grips with the issues.' THES

`Review of first edition:

'Kymlicka has given us a superb book that might serve as a central text in both introductory and advanced courses in political philosophy...Kymlicka's striking achievement is to have presented a sophisticated philosophical analysis in clear, non-technical language readily intellible to any
alternative reader...''
David Stern, Teaching Philosophy

`Review of first edition:

`... For a higher-level undergraduate or graduate course on contemporary political philosophy it would be ideal. Moreover, it is a serious work in political philosophy deserving the attention and respect of the mature political-philosophical community''
James Child, Philosophical Quarterly
