This up-to-date text treats political philosophy and issues (including the terrorist attacks of September 11) from a global perspective, considering the virtues of both nationalism and cosmopolitanism. As part of his aim of describing a comprehensive global political philosophy, Pojman devotes considerable attention to a defense of ethical objectivism over its ubiquitous rival, ethical relativism.

Philosophising, as Spinoza conceives it, is the project of learning to live joyfully. This in turn is a matter of learning to live together, and the most obvious test of philosophical insight is our capacity to sustain a harmonious way of life. Susan James defends this interpretation and explores Spinoza's influence on contemporary debates.

Freedom s Law

The various chapters of this book were originally published separately and are now drawn together to provide the reader with a rich, full-length treatment of Dworkin's general theory of law.

Written by the world's best-known political and legal theorist, Freedom's Law: The Moral Reading of the American Constitution is a collection of essays that discuss almost all of the great constitutional issues of the last two decades, including abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, homosexuality, pornography, and free speech. Professor Dworkin offers a consistently liberal view of the Constitution and argues that fidelity to it and to law demands that judges make moral judgments. He proposes that we all interpret the abstract language of the Constitution by reference to moral principles about political decency and justice. His `moral reading therefore brings political morality into the heart of constitutional law. The various chapters of this book were originally published separately and are now drawn together to provide the reader with a rich, full-length treatment of Dworkin's general theory of law.

Ethics for Disaster addresses the moral aspects of the aftermath of natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and tornadoes. The book explores how these catastrophes illuminate the existing inequalities in society, combining a unique philosophical approach with new moral thinking. Zack stresses the obligation of both individuals and government in preparing for and responding to dangerous times, forcefully arguing for the preservation of normal moral principles even in times of crisis and national emergency.

This volume presents essays on the place of "dignity" or "human dignity" in the moral and juridical universe of the U.S. Constitution. It is dedicated to William J. Brennan, Jr., whose tenure as a Supreme Court associate justice marks the high point of efforts to include the idea of dignity as "implicit in the scheme of ordered liberty" that is part "of the deepest held conviction of a civilized people." The essays are of two kinds: efforts to define human dignity, or studies of human dignity as a principle in the structure of liberty found in the Bill of Rights and the Civil War amendments. The essays argue for the recognition of the idea of dignity as part of the very foundation of the constitution of rights, liberties, and obligations celebrated in the 1991 bicentennial of the Bill of Rights. An exception is a vintage piece by Raoul Berger, in which he rejects Brennan's approach to constitutional interpretation. ISBN 0-8014-2650-2: $32.50.
