Sentimental Bodies: Sex, Gender, and Citizenship in the Early Republic - Paperback

Hardcover, ID: 755262241

Springer. Paperback. New. Paperback. 381 pages. Dimensions: 9.4in. x 6.3in. x 0.9in.A vital issue facing the citizens and governments of modern democracies is the direct participation of the public in the solution of environmental problems. Governments are increasingly experimenting with approaches that give citizens a greater say in the environmental debate. Fairness and Competence in Citizen Participation addresses a crucial question: How can we measure the performance of the citizen participation process A novel approach to the problem is taken by viewing public participation as an act of communication. Drawing on Jrgen Habermas Critical Theory of Communication, a normative framework is developed around the central area of citizen participation and competence in knowledge verification. A milestone on the road of citizen participation and applied critical theory, the book provides a sound theoretical and methodological basis for the systematic evaluation of models for environmental discourse. Eight models of citizen participation are studied, from North America and Europe. Each model is evaluated and criticized in paired chapters written by prominent scholars. Audience: Planners and citizens alike will find pragmatic advice in the evaluations. This item ships from multiple locations.

Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.4in. x 1.3in.This lucid new study offers a detailed and critical exposition of German metaphysics and philosophy of logic during the past century. Julian Roberts sets his argument in the context of the current debate between analytical and continental philosophers. The book centres on the problem of reflection - exploration of the boundaries of rationality, or (in analytical terms) of the limits of thought - which Roberts claims lies at the heart of both traditions. Roberts concentrates on the work of Frege, Wittgenstein, Husserl, the Erlangen School, and Habermas. In the course of his examination, however, he also considers philosophers ranging from Russell and Quine to Putnam and Heidegger. Roberts argues that the technical advances of modern logic have not, as is sometimes believed by analytical thinkers, generated uniquely modern problems that can only be dealt with by a correspondingly modernist philosophy, for the problem of reflection was already at the heart of Kants critical project and of his confrontation with Leibniz. If we recover this earlier debate, says Roberts, we can develop a more adequate understanding not merely of its echoes in the twentieth century, but of the role and contribution of metaphysics and of philosophy in general. The Logic of Reflection is intended for advanced undergraduates across disciplines - in philosophy, the social sciences, literary theory and theology. Julian Roberts was educated at Cambridge. He has taught in London and Cambridge, and was Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft Research Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Bayreuth. He has published Walter Benjamin (1982) and German Philosophy. An Introduction (1988). This item ships from multiple locations.

Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.6in. x 1.0in.The postmodern debate has been heavily influenced by often contradictory conclusions about the foundations of knowledge. Horace Fairlamb contends that philosophys foundationist quest has usually been misconceived as a choice between super-science and theoretical anarchy. Examining the history of foundationism, and providing detailed analysis of the work of leading theorists, including Fish, Foucault, Derrida, Gadamer and Habermas, Dr. Fairlamb argues for a less reductive and less arbitrary conception of knowledge and meaning. The result is an important contribution to the current reevaluation of theoretical discourse. This item ships from multiple locations.

Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.7in. x 0.6in.The quality of undergraduate education in the United States has been a recent subject of debate for public officials as well as curriculum planners. Much of that debate has focused on general education, but little of it has articulated the philosophical presuppositions of general education programs. The problem of this work is to articulate the philosophical presuppositions of the major approaches to general education in the U. S. and to suggest a ground from which to assess them critically. The procedures used are both historical-hermeneutic and critical. In articulating the four major approaches to general education (the Idealist, the Progressive, the Essentialist, and the Pragmatist), the procedures are historical and hermeneutic. In developing a critical theory of general education based on the critical theory of Jurgen Habermas, the procedures are both historical-hermeneutic and critical. The work provides a theoretical ground from which further empirical research may be conducted, as well as making the critical theory of Jurgen Habermas accessible to curricular reformers. The study further suggests ways to evaluate general education programs and suggests a new focus for curricular reform: communicative competence based on the traditional ideals of free speech and the good life.

Sentimentalism, sex, the construction of the modern body, and the origins of American liberalism all come under scrutiny in this rich discussion of political life in the early republic. Here Bruce Burgett enters into debates over the public sphere, a concept introduced by Jurgen Habermas that has led theorists to grapple with such polarities as public and private, polity and personality, citizenship and subjection. With the literary public sphere as his primary focus, Burgett sets out to challenge the Enlightenment opposition of reason and sentiment as the fundamental grid for understanding American political culture. Drawing on texts ranging from George Washingtons Farewell Address and Charles Brockden Browns Clara Howard to Hannah Fosters The Coquette and Harriet Jacobss Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Burgett shows that the sentimental literary culture of the period relied on readers affective, passionate, and embodied responses to fictive characters and situations in order to produce political effects. As such, sentimentalism located readers bodies both as prepolitical sources of personal authenticity and as public sites of political contestation. Going beyond an account of the public sphere as a realm to which only some have full access, Burgett reveals that the formation of the body and sexual subjectivity is crucial to the very construction of that sphere. By exploring and destabilizing the longstanding distinction between public and private life, this book raises questions central to any democratic political culture.
