Designed to include all of the texts from Presocratics through Machiavelli likely to be read in an undergraduate course on classical political thought, this anthology has at its core generous selections from Plato and Aristotle. Building on this core is a sufficiently diverse and substantial selection of texts from other writers--including Thucydides and the Sophists--to allow for inquiry into the variety of Classical Greek approaches to politics, as well as into Roman, Medieval and Renaissance developments of the classical tradition. Preeminent translations and the editor’s own thoughtful introductions further distinguish this unique anthology.

Here are The Prince and the most important Discourses, newly translated into spare, vivid English by one of the most gifted historians of his generation. Why a new translation? "Machiavelli was never the dull, worthy, pedantic author who appears in the pages of other translations", says David Wootton in his Introduction. "In the pages that follow I have done my best to let him speak in his own voice." (And indeed, Wootton's Machiavelli literally does so when the occasion demands: Renderings of that most problematic of words, virtù, are in each instance followed by the Italian). Notes, a map, and an altogether remarkable Introduction, no less authoritative for being grippingly readable, help make this edition an ideal first encounter with Machiavelli for any student of history and political theory.

Da sie mit der Eudemischen Ethik einige Bücher teilt, ist sie möglicherweise nicht von Aristoteles selbst in der uns erhaltenen Form zusammengestellt worden. Warum die Schrift diesen Titel trägt, ist unklar. Er bezieht sich möglicherweise auf Aristoteles’ Sohn Nikomachos, auf seinen gleichnamigen Vater oder eine andere Person dieses Namens. (aus

Ethics in Politics

The Rights and Obligations of Individual Political Agents

Within the field of political philosophy, the role of states, governments, and institutions has dominated research. This has led to a dearth of literature that examines what individuals—e.g., voters, lobbyists, and politicians—ought (or ought not) to do. Ethics in Politics: The Rights and Obligations of Individual Political Agents meets this need, providing a timely discussion of normative questions concerning political agents and the systems in which they act. The book contains eighteen original chapters by leading scholars which cover a range of topics including irrational voting, bribery, partisanship, and political lying. Ethics in Politics is a unique and accessible resource for students, researchers, and all interested readers, and sheds light on important but underexplored issues in ethics and political philosophy.

Liberalismus und gesellschaftliches Handeln

English summary: This is the first introduction to John Dewey's thoughts on liberalism and social action in a closed context. Against the backdrop of Chicago pragmatism, the American philosopher John Dewey developed his suggestions for solving severe sociopolitical and global problems, which are still crucial today in areas such as the health insurance system, unemployment insurance or world peace. John Dewey's thoughts, which are directed at the development of a critical action theory, may be seen as a proposal for developing guidelines for a modern and responsible attitude in politics. German description: Die vorliegende Aufsatzsammlung stellt erstmalig in historisch systematischer Sicht John Deweys Uberlegungen zum Verhaltnis von Liberalismus und gesellschaftlichem Handeln vor. Der bedeutende amerikanische Philosoph entwickelte vor dem Hintergrund der drangenden sozialen und politischen Probleme des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts seine kennzeichnende Position, die an den Maximen des amerikanischen Pragmatismus orientiert ist. John Dewey gewinnt diese Position durch eine historische Analyse der Entwicklungsstadien des Liberalismus und der Formulierung eines Kriterienkatalogs, der einer verantwortlichen Gestaltung einer menschenwurdigen Zukunft zu Grunde gelegt werden soll.Die in dem vorliegenden Band enthaltenen Aufsatze dokumentieren die Entwicklungsstadien des Deweyschen Denkens, das sich nahezu wahrend des gesamten zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts entwickeln konnte. Die von Dewey behandelten Probleme stellen dabei nicht nur historische Beispiele gesellschaftlicher Probleme dar, sondern erweisen sich als ebenso brisant und virulent wie zum Zeitpunkt ihrer erstmaligen Thematisierung. John Deweys Liberalismus und gesellschaftliches Handeln darf folglich auch als Aufforderung gelesen werden, endlich zu energischen und entschlossenen Losungen beispielsweise im Bereich des Krankenversicherungswesens, der Sicherung des Weltfriedens oder der Arbeitslosenversicherung zu gelangen. Deweys Pragmatismus stellt die tatige Mitwirkung eines jeden Menschen im Rahmen seines gesellschaftlichen Kontextes in den Vordergrund seiner Aufmerksamkeit, was seinen charakteristischen Dritten Weg von dem blinden Vertrauen in die sich selbst heilenden Marktkrafte ebenso wie von jeder Form des Praktikalismus unterscheidet: Es geht um eine Theorie der gesellschaftlich verantwortbaren Handlungen.

Another Philosophy of History and Selected Political Writings

Historians of ideas, and students of nationalism in particular, have traced the origins of much of our current vocabulary and ways of thinking about the nation back to Johann Gottfried Herder. This volume provides a clear, readable, and reliable translation of Auch eine Philosophie der Geschichte zur Bildung der Menschheit, supplemented by some of Herder's other important writings on politics and history. The editors' insightful Introduction traces the role of Herder's thought in the evolution of nationalism and highlights its influence on fields such as history, anthropology, and politics. The volume is designed to give English-speaking readers more ready access to the thinker whom Isaiah Berlin called the father of the related notions of nationalism, historicism, and Volksgeist.
