After The open society : selected social and political writings by Karl R Popper( Book )

27 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this long-awaited volume, Jeremy Shearmur and Piers Norris Turner bring to light Popper's most important unpublished and uncollected writings from the time of The Open Society until his death in 1994. After The Open Society: Selected Social and Political Writings reveals the development of Popper's political and philosophical thought during and after the Second World War, from his early socialism through to the radical humanitarianism of The Open Society. The papers in this collection, many of which are available here for the first time, demonstrate the clarity and pertinence of Poppe
The political thought of Karl Popper by Jeremy Shearmur( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and Persian and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeremy Shearmur draws upon archival data to introduce Popper's political ideas by way of a discussion of their development. He goes on to present a critical survey of some of the themes from Popper's The Open Society and its Enemies and The Poverty of Historicism, along with a discussion of the political significance of some of his later philosophical ideas. The book then draws on wider themes within Popper's philosophy to offer striking critical re-interpretations of his ethical ideas, and of his social theory, and concludes with an extended discussion that suggests Popper's views should have been closer to classical liberalism than they were
The morals of markets and related essays by H. B Acton( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Morals of Markets offers a philosophically and historically informed defense of a market-based form of social organization. Acton discusses the profit motive, competition, monopoly, the supposed impersonality of the marketplace, the assumed chaos of markets, self-interest, egalitarianism, central planning, and distributive justice. For all their high moral tone, Acton concludes the criticisms leveled and the political platforms proffered against free markets are full of contradictions and unanalyzed assumptions. A particular strength of Acton's book is that he is himself something of a moral traditionalist
