9780826487957: Politics: Key Concepts in Philosophy

The extent and nature of rights; the sources of state power; the promises and pitfalls of democracy; how to achieve a just distribution of social goods; the claims of culture and gender on our identity: these are just some of the issues to have been addressed by political philosophers throughout history.

Politics: Key Concepts in Philosophy offers a thorough and stimulating account of political philosophy. The text is structured thematically in order to convey the vibrancy of debates within the discipline. Through these debates the text addresses the ideas of major thinkers including Plato, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Marx, Foucault, Rawls, Kymlicka, Okin and Butler and it begins and ends with discussions about the nature of political philosophy itself.

This is an invaluable aid to study, one that goes beyond simple definitions and summaries; readers new to this discipline will encounter a lively text full of clear signposts for the journey into political philosophy.

About the Author:

Iain MacKenzie is Lecturer in Political Theory at the University of Kent, UK. His previous publications include Political Concepts: A Reader and Guide (Edinburgh UP, 2005) and The Idea of Pure Critique (Continuum, 2004).

Review:

"A superbly well-written study of the philosophical roots of contemporary political life. While recognising that our political problems may not be identical to those that motivated classical political philosophers MacKenzie shows how their work is reinterpreted to address contemporary issues. Deftly weaving together exegesis of texts with analysis of concepts and values this book will be of interest to students and general readers alike." — Paul Graham, University of Glasgow, UK

Descrizione libro Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Key Concepts in Philosophy is a series of concise, accessible and engaging introductions to the core ideas and subjects encountered in the study of philosophy. Specially written to meet the needs of students and those with an interest in, but little prior knowledge of, philosophy, these books open up fascinating, yet sometimes difficult ideas. The series builds to give a solid grounding in philosophy and each book is also ideal as a companion to further study. Philosophy underpins political concepts, ideals and debates. The extent and nature of our rights, liberties and responsibilities, the role of the state and the best means of its governance are all questions to have been addressed by great philosophers throughout history - and questions students of political philosophy must engage with. Politics: Key Concepts in Philosophy offers a thorough, lucid and stimulating account of the central theories and ideas encountered in political philosophy. The text is thematically structured, covering the discipline s principal ideologies: Statism; Realism; Liberalism; Conservatism; Socialism; Anarchism; and Environmentalism. It also offers a brief history of political philosophy and the major political philosophers, including Plato, Aristotle, Locke, Rousseau, Hobbes, Marx and Rawls, and, valuably, concludes with a look at applied political philosophy, relating the discipline to contemporary political situations and questions. Philosophy undergraduates will find this an invaluable aid to study, one that goes beyond simple definitions and summaries to open up a new and stimulating range of ideas.
