Socialism, Social Ownership and Social Justice is concerned with the emergence in Europe over the centuries of dreams and aspirations amongst the poor and weak for new societies of justice and equality based on common ownership and common sharing. It ranges from the Greek legendary ideal of a simple communal golden age of equals and the dark reality of Spartan perverted communalism, to the collapse of Soviet communism and the abandonment by West European socialist parties of their commitment to transform ruling-class dominated capitalist societies into democratic, egalitarian socialist societies.

War and Peace in the Western Political Imagination

From Classical Antiquity to the Age of Reason

The study of war in all periods of prehistory and recorded history has always commanded the attention of historians, dramatists, poets and artists. The study of peace has, however, not yet gained a comparable readership, and the subject is attracting an increasing amount of scholarly research. This volume presents the first work of academic research to tackle this imbalance head on. It looks at war and peace through the ages, from the Classical world through to the 18th century. It considers the nature and advocacy of war and peace both from an historical perspective but also a philosophical one, particularly looking at how universal peace, which began as a personal philosophy, became over the centuries a political philosophy that underpins much of modern society's attitudes towards warfare and militarism. Roger Manning begins his journey through history by looking at the Greek martial ethos and philosophical concepts of peace and war in the ancient world; moving through the Roman empire's military advances, he explores the concepts of war and peace in the medieval world and the Renaissance, with the writing of Machiavelli and Erasmus; finally, his account of the search for a science of peace in the 17th and 18th centuries brings the book to its conclusion.

Politische Philosophie der Einwanderung

Author: David Miller

Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag

ISBN: 3518754262

Page: 330

Das Thema Einwanderung wirft gewichtige gesellschaftspolitische, moralische und ethische Fragen auf, die seit einiger Zeit im Zentrum intensiver Debatten stehen. Der renommierte britische Philosoph David Miller verteidigt in seinem Buch eine Position zwischen einem starken Kosmopolitismus, der für uneingeschränkte Bewegungsfreiheit und offene Grenzen plädiert, und einem blinden Nationalismus, der oft in pauschale Ausländerfeindlichkeit und dumpfen Rassismus umschlägt. In ständiger Auseinandersetzung mit Gegenargumenten entwickelt er seinen Standpunkt, der die Rechte sowohl der Immigranten als auch der Staatsbürger berücksichtigen soll – und einen schwachen Kosmopolitismus ebenso einschließt wie das Recht von Nationalstaaten, ihre Grenzen zu kontrollieren. Ziel von Millers Ausführungen ist eine Immigrationspolitik liberaler Demokratien, die so gerecht ist wie möglich und so realistisch wie nötig. Ein beeindruckend präzise und nüchtern argumentierendes Buch, das zum Nachdenken anregt und zum Widerspruch reizt.

Herodots Schilderung von Deiokes' Aufstieg zum K�nig (1,96-1,101,1) l��t sich auf verschiedene Weisen lesen: als Quelle fuer die altorientalische Geschichte und ihre Deutung durch einen Griechen, als genuin historiographischer Text am Anfang der Gattungsbildung und als Beitrag zu einem politischen Diskurs. Die hier vorgelegten, einander erg�nzenden und aufeinander abgestimmten Interpretationen verstehen sich als Muster fuer einen kuenftigen intra- und interdisziplin�ren Kommentar zum Werk des Geschichtsschreibers zwischen Ost und West. Aus dem Inhalt Herodot, 1,96-1,101,1: Text und �bersetzung Josef Wieseh�fer: Daiukku, Deiokes und die medische Reichsbildung Mischa Meier: Die Deiokes-Episode im Werk Herodots. �berlegungen zu den Entstehungsbedingungen griechischer Geschichtsschreibung Barbara Patzek: Die Deiokes-Erz�hlung im Rahmen der Persergeschichten Herodots: eine konsequente Reihe historisch-erz�hlerischer Sinngebungen?
