Marxism recycled by Philippe van Parijs( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 321 libraries worldwide
The essays collected in this book reflect the author's conviction that the Marxist tradition can be kept alive as an essential political component of the Left not through dutiful conservation, but through ruthless recycling. The book draws lessons from the blind alleys to which Marxist thought led, and preserves and develops the most precious insights it contains. In particular, it spells out and defends the controversial notion of a 'capitalist road to communism' that would remain true to the Marxian ideal while embracing capitalism

Linguistic justice for Europe and for the world by Philippe van Parijs( Book )
22 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and German and held by 258 libraries worldwide
In Europe and throughout the world, competence in English is spreading at a speed never achieved by any language in human history. This apparently irresistible growing dominance of English is frequently perceived and sometimes indignantly denounced as being grossly unjust. Linguistic Justice for Europe and for the World starts off arguing that the dissemination of competence in a common lingua franca is a process to be welcomed and accelerated, most fundamentally because it provides the struggle for greater justice in Europe and in the world with an essential weapon: a cheap medium of communication and of mobilization. However, the resulting linguistic situation can plausibly be regarded as unjust in three distinct senses. Firstly, the adoption of one natural language as the lingua franca implies that its native speakers are getting a free ride by benefiting costlessly from the learning effort of others. Secondly, they gain greater opportunities as a result of competence in their native language becoming a more valuable asset. And thirdly the privilege systematically given to one language fails to show equal respect for the various languages with which different portions of the population concerned identify. The book spells out the corresponding interpretations of linguistic justice as cooperative justice, distributive justice and parity of esteem, respectively. And it discusses systematically a wide range of policies that might help achieve linguistic justice in these three senses, from a linguistic tax on Anglophone countries to the banning of dubbing or the linguistic territoriality principle. Against this background, the book argues that linguistic diversity is not valuable in itself but it will nonetheless need to be protected as a by-product of the pursuit of linguistic justice as parity of esteem
Arguing for basic income : ethical foundations for a radical reform by Philippe van Parijs( Book )
11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 258 libraries worldwide
Redesigning distribution : basic income and stakeholder grants as alternative cornerstones for a more egalitarian capitalism by Bruce A Ackerman( Book )
12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and German and held by 225 libraries worldwide
"Are there ways that contemporary capitalism can be rendered a dramatically more egalitarian economic system without destroying its productivity and capacity for growth? This book explores two proposals, unconditional basic income and stakeholder grants, which attempt just that. In a system of basic income, as elaborated by Philippe van Parijs, all citizens are given a monthly stipend sufficient to provide them with a no-frills but adequate standard of living. This monthly income is universal rather than means-tested, and it is unconditional - receiving the basic income does not depend upon performing any labor services or satisfying other conditions. It affirms the idea that as a matter of basic rights, no one should live in poverty in an affluent society."

Just democracy : the Rawls-Machiavelli programme by Philippe van Parijs( Book )
11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
"We don't just need democracy. We need just democracy. Among the countless ways in which democracies could be organized, we must not try to adopt the most democratic ones. We must go instead for those that offer the best prospect of making our societies and our world more just. This is the core of the Rawls-Machiavelli programme forcefully advocated and vividly illustrated in this book, a powerful alliance between Rawlsian thinking about social justice and Machiavellian thinking about political institutions. For example, how could our political institutions be reformed in order to better serve intergenerational justice? And how should political institutions be shaped to as to best fit the specific circumstances of deeply divided societies, or of multilingual countries, or of the European Union? This is the sort of question that is being addressed in this unusual combination of rigorous philosophical arguments, detailed historical accounts and bold political proposals."--Publisher's description
Basic income, unemployment and compensatory justice by L. F. M Groot( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 134 libraries worldwide
Basic income is a regularly debated topic in various scholarly disciplines (political philosophy, political theory, welfare economics, labour market economics and social policy) and in circles of policy makers, administrators and activists. Since the late 1970s, unemployment is the primary problem for social-economic policy in all welfare states. In Basic Income, Unemployment and Compensatory Justice it is argued that implementing a substantial basic income is the best policy response to deal with unemployment-induced problems such as job insecurity, social exclusion, poverty and lack of compensatory justice on the labour market and to improve labour market flexibility, boost low wage employment and part-time work. Basic Income, Unemployment and Compensatory Justice, with an introductory chapter by Philippe van Parijs, discusses the attractiveness of a substantial basic income to deal with the problem of unemployment, in combination with an ethical perspective of social justice. Loek Groot is a senior lecturer at the Utrecht School of Economics
L'allocation universelle by Yannick Vanderborght( Book )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in French and Spanish and held by 126 libraries worldwide
L'allocation universelle consiste à verser un revenu de base à tous les citoyens, cumulable avec un autre revenu. Ce projet est défendu par une pluralité d'hommes et de courants politiques, universitaires et militants, hommes d'affaires, partis politiques de gauche comme de droite. Pour d'autres personnes, ce type d'allocation représente une chimère, économiquement inacceptable
