Justice for hedgehogs by Ronald Dworkin( )

28 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the book : "The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. Value is one big thing. The truth about living well and being good and what is wonderful is not only coherent but mutually supporting : what we think about any one of these must stand up, eventually, to any argument we find compelling about the rest."--Jacket
Taking rights seriously by Ronald Dworkin( Book )

128 editions published between 1977 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 2,373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A landmark work of political and legal philosophy, Ronald Dworkin's Taking Rights Seriously was acclaimed as a major work on its first publication in 1977 and remains profoundly influential in the 21st century. A forceful statement of liberal principles - championing the legal, moral and political rights of the individual against the state - Dworkin demolishes prevailing utilitarian and legal-positivist approaches to jurisprudence. Developing his own theory of adjudication, he applies this to controversial public issues, from civil disobedience to positive discrimination
Law's empire by Ronald Dworkin( Book )

97 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author argues for judicial decision making to be based on interpretation rather than simply applying past legal decisions. This judicial interpretation should be based on theory insisting "fundamental point of law is not to report consensus or provide efficient means to social goals, but to answer the requirement that a political community act in a coherent and principled manner toward all its members."--Publisher's description

A matter of principle by Ronald Dworkin( Book )

58 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 1,528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discute questões a respeito do sistema jurídico anglo-americano como protetor de direitos individuais e como mecanismo para promover o bem comum. Discute se os juízes devem tomar decisões políticas em casos controversos, o equilíbrio entre os direitos individuais e o bem da comunidade, se uma pessoa tem o direito de fazer algo que a sociedade considera errado e o significado da igualdade em qualquer estrutura social
Freedom's law : the moral reading of the American Constitution by Ronald Dworkin( Book )

46 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dworkin argues that Americans have been systemically misled about what their Constitution is and how judges decide what it means. What does its abstract language mean when it is applied to the political controversies that divide Americans--about affirmative action, euthanasia, censorship, pornography, and homosexuality, for example? Is the moral reading of the Constitution--the only reading that really makes sense--really undemocratic? In this fascinating book, Dworkin discusses these and other aspects of the document
Sovereign virtue : the theory and practice of equality by Ronald Dworkin( Book )

30 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Equality is the endangered species of political ideals. Even left-of-centre politicians reject equality as an ideal. In this text, Ronald Dworkin insists, to the contrary, that equality is the indispensable virtue of democratic sovereignty

Justice in robes by Ronald Dworkin( Book )

23 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How should a judge's moral convictions bear on his judgments about what the law is? In these essays, Dworkin charts a variety of dimensions in which law and morals are interwoven.

Dworkin and his critics : with replies by Dworkin( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dworkin and His Critics provides an in-depth, analytical discussion of Ronald Dworkin's moral, ethical, legal, and political philosophical writings. As the first text to cover such a wide range of Dworkin's thought, it makes a substantial contribution to a number of ongoing academic debates over abortion, euthanasia, the rule of law, distributive justice, group rights, political obligation, and genetics. Underpinning Dworkin's work are fundamental principles of political morality, discussion of which is a central focus of the book. The 18 contributors include Richard J. Arneson, G.A. Cohen, F.M. Kamm, Will Kymlicka, Philippe van Parijs, Eric Rakowski, Seana Valentine Shiffrin, and Jeremy Waldron. This collection of primarily new essays features substantial replies by Ronald Dworkin and a comprehensive bibliography of his work. Dworkin and His Critics, an interdisciplinary work, is indispensable for students, instructors, and scholars in the fields of philosophy, law, and politics
Equality and preferential treatment( Book )

10 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays, with one exception originally published in Philosophy & Public Affairs, consider the moral problems associated with improving the social and economic position of disadvantaged groups. If the situation of women and minorities improves so that their opportunities are equal to those of more favored groups, will they then be in a competitive position conducive to equal achievement? If not, can preferential hiring or preferential admission to educational institutions be justified? The contributors explore the complexities of this problem from several points of view. The discussions in Part I are more theoretical and concentrate on the application to this case of general considerations from ethical theory. The discussions in Part II also take up theoretical questions, but they start from specific problems about the constitutionality and the effectiveness of certain methods of achieving equality and counteracting discrimination. The two groups of essays demonstrate admirably the close connection between moral philosophy and questions of law and policy. The issues discussed include compensation, liability, victimization, the significance of group membership, the intrinsic importance of racial, sexual, or meritocratic criteria, and the overall effects of preferential policies. -- Back cover

Currently he is University Professor of Philosophy at Central European University, Budapest
An American index of the hidden and unfamiliar by Taryn Simon( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le visage sombre et décidé de cette jeune artiste américaine renferme un mystère que son exposition nommée An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar dévoile, sans pourtant en livrer le secret. Cette jeune trentenaire s'attache ici à montrer l'autre côté du miroir de l'Amérique, miroir brisé...Au fur et à mesure du visionnage, l'inquiétante étrangeté qui se dégage des clichés de Taryn Simon nous amène presque à appréhender l'arrivée du suivant.Est-ce que ce sont ces luminosités sombres qui effraient, comme un voile trouble que l'on jette sur la réalité ? Est-ce l'aspect sordide de ces teintes usées qui dérange ? Ou le contraste des couleurs, qui opère un glissement vers le surnaturel et donne le vertige ? Est-ce le discours qui accompagne chaque photo? Comme autant d'auscultations froides et détachées qui resituent la photographie dans une perspective sociopolitique affligeante. ¦La photographe livre des situations qui semblent si calmement documentées, un contexte si clairement énoncé, est-ce alors cette rigueur qui égare ?¦Il est clair que les thématiques choisis par Taryn Simon nous fragilisent. Son travail semble se situer à l'endroit des dérives obscènes des sociétés. L'endroit où celles-ci dégénèrent.Ce tigre blanc magnifique est issu d'un croisement. L'animal paie alors sa beauté du prix d'une consanguinité qui la rendu retardé et de fines déformations physiques qui l'empêchent entre autre de respirer normalement. Cette jeune palestinienne dont on ne voit que les jambes vient se racheter un hymen pour un prix monstrueux dans un contexte sordide, tout ça pour ne pas risquer un rejet de sa famille. Et cet endroit où l'on congèle les corps des hommes ou des animaux dans l'espoir qu'un jour on pourra les ramener à la vie. La photographe, qui expose maintenant ses clichés dans le monde entier, réalise des reportages très fouillés sur des sujets dérangeants. Sa précédente série de photographies The innocent rassemblait des portraits de personnes condamnées pour meurtre puis innocentées. Taryn Simon réfléchissait par ce biais au rôle que joue la photographie dans le dispositif judiciaire américain. Objet nécessaire au procédé d'identification et de condamnation, capable alors de transformer l'innocent en criminel. ¦La jeune femme s'est également intéressée à la C.I.A comme à Disney, et traque tout ce qui peut se cacher derrière chaque (apparamment) belle vitrine. Inquiétant? On ne sait pas pour qui finalement...¦
The legacy of Isaiah Berlin( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The papers given at the conference and collected in this volume concentrate on three aspects of Berlin's concept of pluralism. Aileen Kelly, Mark Lilla, and Steven Lukes trace the development and consequences of his distinction between "hedgehogs," thinkers who have a single, unified theory of human action and history, and "foxes," who believe in multiplicity and resist the impulse to subject humanity to a universal vision. Ronald Dworkin, Bernard Williams, Thomas Nagel, and Charles Taylor examine how liberalism can be sustained in the face of Berlin's insight that equally legitimate values, such as liberty and equality, may come into irreconcilable conflict. Avishai Margalit, Richard Wollheim, Michael Walzer, and Robert Silvers take up Berlin's advocacy for the State of Israel and his hopes for it as a place where the often contrary values of liberalism and nationalism might find harmonious resolution."--Jacket
