Between Ethics And Politics from the Author: Eva Pföstl. Is it possible to build an authentically democratic system in politics without concrete ethical foundations? Addressing this question in the wake of the contemporary crisis in democracy worldwide, the volume re-evaluates Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s key thoughts. It foregrounds their relevance to the ongoing struggles that attempt to reconcile the apparently dissimilar orientations of politics and ethics. Collecting fresh interdisciplinary researches, the book provides insights into Gandhi’s complex — and occasionally turbulent — intellectual and political relationships with influential figures of Indian society and politics, whether critics such as B. R. Ambedkar and friends like Rabindranath Tagore and Jawaharlal Nehru. It also presents an informed political biography of Gandhi, encapsulating the salient details of his long trajectory as a unique mass mobilizer, socio-political activist and ideologue — from his days in South Africa to his death in independent India. This book will immensely interest scholars and students of political theory, philosophy, ethics, history, and Gandhian studies.

Posts Kularismus from the Author: Matthias Lutz-Bachmann.

International renommierte Philosophen, Theologen und Sozialwissenschaftler erörtern, welche Bedeutung dem Begriff des »Postsäkularen« zukommt, ob das säkulare Zeitalter der Vergangenheit angehört, und wie es möglich ist, zwischen widerstreitenden religiösen, areligiösen und antireligiösen Überzeugungen eine gemeinsame politische Sprache zu finden. Mit Beiträgen von William Barbieri, James Bohman, José Casanova, Rainer Forst, Karl Gabriel, Friedrich Wilhelm Graf, Volkhard Krech, Hartmut Leppin, Detlef Pollack und Charles Taylor.

Expose Oppose Propose from the Author: William K. Carroll. Neoliberal capitalism positions us all as consumers in a hypermarket where money talks. For the majority of people around the globe, this translates as precarity and immiseration. But how can we break from this dominant ideological framework? Expose, Oppose, Propose details how, since the mid 1970s, transnational alternative policy groups (TAPGs) have functioned as think tanks of a different sort, generating resources for a globalization from below in dialogue with the critical social movements that are protagonists for global justice. Based on two years of intensive research, William Carroll not only provides a detailed examination of a variety of TAPGs – showing how each group is distinctive and autonomous in its vision, practical priorities, and ways of producing and mobilizing alternative knowledge – but also reveals how TAPGs form a master frame that advocates and envisages global justice and ecological wellbeing.
