Modernization and its political consequences Weber, Mannheim, and Schumpeter by Hans Theodorus Blokland( file )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,260 libraries worldwide
People's capacity to give meaning and direction to social life is an essential dimension of political freedom. Yet many citizens of Western democracies believe that this freedom has become quite restricted. They feel they are at the mercy of anonymous structures and processes over which they have little control, structures and processes that present them with options and realities they might not have chosen if they had any real choice. As a result, political interest declines and political cynicism flourishes. The underlying cause of the powerlessness pervading the current political system could be modernization. Taking the work of Max Weber, Karl Mannheim, and Joseph Schumpeter as a point of departure, Hans Blokland here examines this process. The topics covered are, among others, the meaning of modernisation, the forces that drive it, and, especially, the consequences of modernisation for the political freedom of citizens to influence the course of their society via democratic politics
Pluralism, democracy and political knowledge Robert A Dahl and his critics on modern politics by Hans Theodorus Blokland( file )
14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 964 libraries worldwide
Taking his work as a point of reference, this book not only provides an illuminating history of political science, told via Dahl and his critics. It also offers a revealing analysis as to what progress we have made in our thinking on pluralism and democracy, and what progress we could make, given social sciences epistemological constraints. Above and beyond this, the development and the problems of pluralism and democracy are explored in the context of the process of modernization
Freedom and culture in Western society by Hans Theodorus Blokland( Book )
7 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 177 libraries worldwide
What does freedom mean? Does everyone in Western liberal democracies enjoy maximum freedom? Has freedom become a dogma, the meaning and justification of which has been forgotten? Critically examining the conceptions of freedom of some of the leading contemporary philosophers from Isaiah Berlin to Charles Taylor, Hans Blokland explores the value and significance that freedom has acquired in our political consciousness. He looks specifically at positive and negative freedom, emancipation and paternalism, and freedom and cultural politics
