Whose justice? Which rationality? by Alasdair C MacIntyre( Book )

47 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 1,789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is there any cause or war worth risking one's life for? How can we determine which actions are vices and which virtues? MacIntyre, professor of philosophy at Vanderbilt University, unravels these and other such questions by linking the concept of justice to what he calls practical rationality. He rejects the grab-what-you-can, utilitarian yardstick adopted by moral relativists. Instead, he argues that four wholly different, incompatible ideas of justice put forth by Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas and Hume have helped shape our modern individualistic world. In his unorthodox view, each person seeks the good through an ongoing dialogue with one of these traditions or within Jewish, non-Western or other historical traditions. This weighty sequel to After Virtue (1981) is certain to stir debate

Dependent rational animals : why human beings need the virtues by Alasdair C MacIntyre( Book )

37 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The overall argument of this book presupposes the truth of certain contentious philosophical theses: that human identity is primarily an animal identity, that understanding the resemblance between human beings and some other types of intelligent animals is a necessary prerequisite for also understanding how they differ, that human flourishing requires the exercise of certain types of virtue, and that it is only within a certain type of local political community that those virtues can be developed and sustained. The latter part of this book is directed to the discussion and defence of these theses."--Jacket

God, philosophy, universities : a selective history of the Catholic philosophical tradition by Alasdair C MacIntyre( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MacIntyre gives the reader an extremely perceptive account of the role of religion in modern culture and society as a whole. Three convictions underlie this book. The first is that an educated Catholic laity needs to understand a good deal more about Catholic philosophical thought than it does now. The warring partisans on the great issues that engage our culture and politics presuppose the truth of some philosophical theses and the falsity of others. Second, argues MacIntyre, Catholic philosophy is best understood historically, as a continuing conversation through the centuries, in which we turn and return to the most important voices from our past. Third, philosophy is not just a matter of propositions affirmed or denied but of philosophers in particular cultural and social situations interacting with each other in their affirmations and denials, in their argumentative wrangling. This is the context for a book of vital importance and interest for anyone involved with education in a religious context. But from someone with MacIntyre's authority and reputation, the reader can expect something extremely perceptive about the role of religion in modern culture and society as a whole. The reader will not be disappointed

Ethics and politics : selected essays by Alasdair C MacIntyre( Book )

50 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alasdair MacIntyre is one of the most creative and important philosophers working today. This volume presents a selection of his classic essays on ethics and politics collected together for the first time, focusing particularly on the themes of moral disagreement, moral dilemmas, and truthfulness and its importance. The essays range widely in scope, from Aristotle and Aquinas and what we need to learn from them, to our contemporary economic and social structures and the threat which they pose to the realization of the forms of ethical life. They will appeal to a wide range of readers across philosophy and especially in moral philosophy, political philosophy, and theology. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
Alasdair MacIntyre's engagement with Marxism : selected writings 1953-1974 by Alasdair C MacIntyre( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1950s and '60s Alasdair MacIntyre was one of the most erudite members of Britain's Marxist left. This selection of his essays on Marxism from that period aims to show that his youthful thought profoundly informed his mature ethics and that the Marxist ethics of liberation he articulated then are still relevant now
Edith Stein : a philosophical prologue by Alasdair C MacIntyre( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MacIntyre is one of the major British philosophers of the post-war years. He is a convert to Roman Catholicism. Edith Stein was an intellectual of considerable importance in the period between the two World Wars, also canonised as a Saint. A Jewish convert to Catholicism, she died in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. Stein's published essays focused largely on the structure of the person and a careful articulation of the essential nature of community and its basis in our nature as persons. MacIntyre looks at Stein as both a theologian and philosopher, and reveals many of the fundamental issues in both disciplines
