Against injustice : the new economics of Amartya Sen by Reiko Gotō( Book )
15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
Traditional theories of justice as formulated by political philosophers, jurists, and economists have all tended to see injustice as simply a breach of justice, a breakdown of the normal order. Amartya Sen's work acts as a corrective to this tradition by arguing that we can recognise patent injustices, and come to a reasoned agreement about the need to remedy them, without reference to an explicit theory of justice. Against Injustice brings together distinguished academics from a variety of different fields - including economics, law, philosophy, and anthropology - to explore the ideas underlying Sen's critique of traditional approaches to injustice. The centerpiece of the book is the first chapter by Sen in which he outlines his conception of the relationship between economics, ethics, and law. The rest of the book addresses a variety of theoretical and empirical issues that relate to this conception, concluding with a response from Sen to his critics

The barren sacrifice : an essay on political violence / Paul Dumouchel ; translated by Mary Baker by Paul Dumouchel( Book )
9 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in French and English and held by 155 libraries worldwide
"According to political theory, the primary function of the modern state is to protect its citizens--both from each other and from external enemies. Yet it is the states that essentially commit major forms of violence, such as genocides, ethnic cleansings, and large-scale massacres, against their own citizens. In this book Paul Dumouchel argues that this paradoxical reversal of the state's primary function into violence against its own members is not a mere accident but an ever-present possibility that is inscribed in the structure of the modern state. Modern states need enemies to exist and to persist, not because they are essentially evil but because modern politics constitutes a violent means of protecting us against our own violence. If they cannot--if we cannot--find enemies outside the state, they will find them inside. However, this institution is today coming to an end, not in the sense that states are disappearing, but in the sense that they are increasingly failing to protect us from our own violence. That is why the violent sacrifices that they ask from us, in wars and even in times of peace, have now become barren"--Cover flap

Émotions : essai sur le corps et le social by Paul Dumouchel( Book )
12 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in French and held by 95 libraries worldwide
Klappentext: L'émotion n'est pas un épisode privé dans la vie du sujet, et qui reçoit par la suite une socialisation qui la dompte ou qui la met en forme. Elle n'est ni un équilibre particulier des humeurs, ni un tressaillement des viscères, ni un état mental, ni, a fortiori, une réaction de la psyché confrontée au refoulé. Les émotions sont des œuvres communes auxquelles plusieurs participent
Social bonds as freedom : revisiting the dichotomy of the universal and the particular by Paul Dumouchel( Book )
8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 67 libraries worldwide
Central to discussions of multiculturalism and minority rights in modern liberal societies is the idea that the particular demands of minority groups contradict the requirements of equality, anonymity, and universality for citizenship and belonging. The contributors to this volume question the significance of this dichotomy between the universal and the particular, arguing that it reflects how the modern state has instituted the basic rights and obligations of its members and that these institutions are undergoing fundamental transformations under the pressure of globalization. They show that the social bonds uniting groups constitute the means of our freedom, rather than obstacles to achieving the universal
Comprendre pour agir violences, victimes et vengeances by violences, victimes et vengeances Colloque Comprendre pour agir( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in French and held by 64 libraries worldwide
Comprendre pour agir, tel est le fil conducteur des contributions d'éminents universitaires, spécialistes de la réflexion sur la violence, et de praticiens de la gestion sociale de l'action violente et de ses conséquences. Composé de trois sections qui abordent les questions liées à la violence sous trois angles différents : l'anthropologie, l'éthique et le droit, l'ouvrage nous invite à se déprendre du mythe consistant à croire que la violence affecte notre société seulement de façon périphérique ou sous forme de déviance. Coédition, les presses universitaires de Laval
The ambivalence of scarcity and other essays by Paul Dumouchel( Book )
8 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 62 libraries worldwide
First published in French in 1979, "The Ambivalence of Scarcity" was a groundbreaking work on mimetic theory. Now expanded upon with new and never-before-published conference texts and essays, this version explores Rene Girard's philosophy in three sections: economy and economics, mimetic theory, and violence and politics in modern societies. The first section argues that though mimetic theory is in many ways critical of modern economic theory, this criticism can contribute to the enrichment of economic thinking. The second section explores the issues of nonviolence and misrecognition (meconnaissance), which have been at the center of many discussions of Girard's work. The final section proposes mimetic analyses of the violence typical of modern societies, from high school bullying to genocide and terrorist attacks. Politics, Dumouchel argues, is a violent means of protecting us from our own violent tendencies, and it can at times become the source of the very savagery from which it seeks to protect us. The book's conclusion analyzes the relationship between ethics and economics, opening new avenues of research and inviting further exploration
Tolérance, pluralisme & histoire ( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 59 libraries worldwide
Quels rapports entre la tolérance et le pluralisme ? La tolérance est-elle une notion dépassée que d'autres formes de respect des opinions et des moeurs des autres devraient remplacer ? Quels liens y a-t-il entre la tolérance etnos pratiques en ce qui concerne l'immigration, ou entre le pluralisme et l'impérialisme ? Telles sont certaines questions auxquelles cet ouvrage, rassemblant philosophes, historiens et juristes en provenance de France et du Canada, tente de répondre dans le cadre d'une réflexion sur l'histoire et la philosophie du droit

Gewaltmassen über Eigendynamik und Selbstorganisation kollektiver Gewalt by Axel T. Paul; Benjamin Schwalb( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Gewalt wird in weiten Teilen der Welt verurteilt, und doch ist sie omnipräsent. Männer und Frauen sind besonders als Teil einer Gruppe oder Menschenmenge dazu bereit, Gewalt auszuüben, die sie zuvor als illegitim und unvereinbar mit ihrem Selbstverständnis wahrgenommen haben. Während die Erforschung von kollektiver Gewalt insgesamt organisatorische Erklärungen privilegiert, widmet sich dieses Buch Prozessen spontaner, ungeplanter Ordnungsbildung. Anhand zahlreicher empirischer Beispiele werden die Mechanismen, die Prozesse und die (Rück-)Wirkungen verschiedener Verlaufsformen von nicht-organisierter kollektiver Gewalt untersucht, deren Kenntnis für jedwede Interventionen notwendig ist.
