Community & society (Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft) by Ferdinand Tnnies( Book )

323 editions published between 1887 and 2011 in 16 languages and held by 3,499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ferdinand Tonnies's Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft (first published in 1887) is a classic of social and political theory in the later-modern period. It focuses on the universally endemic clash between small-scale, kinship and neighbourhood-based 'communities' and large-scale competitive market 'societies'. This theme is explored in all aspects of life - in political, economic, legal and family structures; in art, religion and culture; in constructions of 'selfhood' and 'personhood'; and in modes of cognition, language and human understanding. Tonnies is best known as one of the 'founding fathers' of modern sociology, but the present work lays greater emphasis on his relationship to European political thought and to developments in philosophy since the seventeeth-century scientific revolution, particularly the legacies of Hobbes and Kant. It can be read at many different levels: as a response to developments in Bismarckian Germany; as a more general critique of the culture of modernity; as a theoretical exercise in social, political and moral science; and as an unusual commentary on the inner character of 'democratic socialism'. This new translation and introduction make Tonnies's classic but difficult work accessible to English-speaking readers interested in social and political theory, intellectual and social history, language and cultural studies, and the history of economic thought."--Jacket
The elements of law, natural and politic by Thomas Hobbes( Book )

68 editions published between 1869 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Hobbes was the first great philosopher to write in English. His account of the human condition, first developed in The Elements of Law (1640), which comprises Human Nature and De Corpore Politico, is a direct product of the intellectual and political strife of the seventeenth century. It is also a remarkably penetrating look at human nature, and a still relevant analysis of the fears and self-seeking that result in the war of 'each against every man'. Hobbes sets out the main lines of his general philosophy, later augmented in De Corpore, and the moral and political philosophy later made famous in Leviathan." "This is the first complete popular edition of Human Nature and De Corpore Politico, and it includes chapters from De Corpore and 'Three Lives', two from Hobbes's original Latin. These have never before been published together in English. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
Custom; an essay on social codes by Ferdinand Tnnies( Book )

46 editions published between 1905 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Custom, Ferdinand Tönnies illustrates the relationship of custom to various aspects of culture, such as religion, gender, and family. Tönnies argues that all social norms are evolved from a basic sense of order, which is largely derived from customs. As such, custom refers to the ideal, and the desirable, and it mediates subjective aspects of social life. Tönnies makes observations in Custom that are just as true today as when they were written over a century ago. The pivotal idea in Tönnies work is the observation that custom, like its individual counterpart habit, has three distinct aspects: a fact--an actual way of conduct; a norm--a general rule of conduct; and a will. The analysis, extended into the field of collective behavior, helps to explain how far custom can be regarded as a manifestation of a common will. Custom is a classic contribution in the grand canon of law and society scholarship. Moreover, the volume introduces several key elements of Tönnies' work focusing on broader sociological thought, which benefits both the theoretical understanding of law as an object of social science reflection, as well as provides empirical insights into the roles of law in society.--Back cover

Behemoth ; or, The long Parliament by Thomas Hobbes( Book )

32 editions published between 1889 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Behemoth is Thomas Hobbes's narrative of the English Civil Wars from the beginning of the Scottish revolution in 1637 to the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660. It is his only composition to address directly the history of the events which formed the context of his writings in Leviathan and elsewhere on sovereignty and the government of the Church. Although presented as an account of past events, it conceals a vigorous attack on the values of the religious and political establishment of Restoration England. This is the first fully scholarly edition of the work, and the first new edition of the text since 1889. Based on Hobbes's own presentation manuscript, it includes for the first time an accurate transcription of the passages which Hobbes had deleted in the text, and notes made by early readers."--Jacket

Dies Büchlein ist verfat worden um der Wahrheit willen. Die Zeugnisse der angesehensten englischen Autoren können nicht widerlegt werden. Sie werfen das beste Licht auf die gegen wärtige europäische Krisis. Das Büchlein ist nicht verfat worden, um den Nationalha zu schüren. Der Verfasser unterscheidet streng zwischen dem englischen Volke und der englischen Weltpolitik. Sogar die jeweiligen Leiter dieser Politik kennen zumeist Kräfte dieser Politik nur unzulänglich. die treibenden Das englische Volk besteht aus sehr verschieden gearteten Teilen. Neben den wirklichen Engländern sind Schotten, Walliser, Iren und die mannigfachen Mischungen dieser Volksstämme vor handen; dazu Abkömmlinge von Deutschen, Vlamen, Franzosen, Skandinaviern u. a. Auerdem sind Charakter und Denkungsart verschieden nach Tätigkeit oder Müiggang, Beruf und Stand und sozialer Klasse; also überaus mannigfach und verwickelt. Freilich werden, noch mehr als in anderen Ländern, die oberen Schichten von den unteren bewundert und nachgeahmt. Die wirkliche Herrschaft in Grobritannien und Irland ruht seit Jahrhunderten in den Händen einer Oligarchie von Grund herren; diese lät die Spitzen der Handels-und Geldaristokratie neben sich gedeihen und nimmt sie sogar in sich auf; das Ver hältnis zwischen beiden Herrschergruppen beruht auf dem still schweigenden Einverständnis, da Englands Bestimmung ist, die Erde ZU beherrschen und auszubeuten zu beider Bereicherung. Seit 50 Jahren hat die eigentliche Volksmenge, besonders die Arbeiterschaft, auf diese ihre geborenen Herren durch Presse und parlamentarische Vertretung einen wachsenden Einflu gewonnen in Sachen der inneren Politik. Die auswärtige Politik ist Domäne Vorwort
