Moral relativism by Steven Lukes ( Book )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Moral relativism attracts and repels. What is defensible in it and what is to be rejected? Do we as human beings have no shared standards by which we can understand one another? Can we abstain from judging one another's practices? Do we truly have divergent views about what constitutes good and evil, virtue and vice, harm and welfare, dignity and humiliation, or is there some underlying commonality that trumps it all? These questions turn up everywhere, from Montaigne's essay on cannibals, to the UN Declaration of Human Rights, to the debate over female genital mutilation. They become ever more urgent with the growth of mass immigration, the rise of religious extremism, the challenges of Islamist terrorism, the rise of identity politics, and the resentment at colonialism and the massive disparities of wealth and power between North and South. Are human rights and humanitarian interventions just the latest form of cultural imperialism? By what right do we judge particular practices as barbaric? Who are the real barbarians? ..."

Multicultural questions by Christian Joppke ( Book )
22 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume assembles leading scholars from a wide range of disciplines and countries to debate multiculturalism in theory and practice. The volume is grouped around four central questions raised by multiculturalism: (1) Is universalism ethnocentric? (2) Does multiculturalism threaten citizenship? (3) Do minorities require group rights? And (4) What can Europe learn from North America? The answers delivered in this book seek to move the debate about multiculturalism from a polemical into a more analytical mode. This book suggests a Burkean stance toward multiculturalism, in which it is 'circumstances' that render 'every civil and political scheme beneficial or noxious to mankind'."--BOOK JACKET

Liberals and cannibals : the implications of diversity by Steven Lukes ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Taking as his starting point Robert Frost's accusation that a liberal is someone who can't take his own side in an argument, Steven Lukes confronts liberal thought with its own limitations. The essays in this collection focus on the perennial but newly urgent questions of how the tension between relativism and the moral universalism current in contemporary politics can be resolved within the framework of liberalism." "While recognizing the dangers of moral imperialism, Lukes argues that a relativist position based on identifying clearly distinct cultural and moral communities is incoherent. Drawing on work in anthropology and philosophy, he examines the nature of social justice, the politics of identity and human rights theory, as well as discussing how ideas drawn from the work of Isaiah Berlin can shed light on these debates."--BOOK JACKET

Condorcet : political writings by Jean-Antoine-Nicolas de Caritat Condorcet ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nicolas de Condorcet (1743-1794), the innovating founder of mathematical thinking in politics, was the last great philosophe of the French Enlightenment and a central figure in the early years of the French Revolution. His political writings give a compelling vision of human progress across world history and express the hopes of that time in the future perfectibility of man. This volume contains a revised translation of 'The Sketch', written while in hiding from the Jacobin Terror, together with lesser-known writings on the emancipation of women, the abolition of slavery, the meanings of freedom and despotism and reflections on revolutionary violence. The introduction by Steven Lukes and Nadia Urbinati sets these works in context and shows why Condorcet is of real interest today as we reinterpret the meaning of Enlightenment, the very idea of progress and the founding ideas of social democracy"--
