Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The crisis of western civilization is a crisis of public philosophy. This is the charge of Public Philosophy and Political Science, a stunning new collection of essays edited by E. Robert Statham Jr. Vividly cataloging the decay of the moral and intellectual foundations of civic liberty, the book portrays a generation of Americans alienated from institutions built on public philosophy. The work exposes the failure of America's political scientists to acknowledge and understand this alarming crisis in the American body politic. The distinguished contributors examine the evolution of public philosophy; the inextricable relationship between politics and philosophy; and the interplay between public philosophy, the constitution, natural law, and government. They reveal the dire threat to deliberative democracy and the fundamental order of constitutional society posed by public philosophy's waning power to refine, cultivate, and civilize. The work is an indictment of a society which has discarded a way of life rooted in natural law, democracy and the traditions of civility; and is a denunciation of an educated elite that has divorced itself from the standards upon which public philosophy rests. It is essential reading for philosophers and political and social scientists seeking to resurrect the standards of American public life.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A collection of eighteen essays, which originally were delivered as lectures, read as papers, or submitted as journal articles, this book records the intellectual voyage in political science by Dr. Remigio E. Agpalo as student, teacher, researcher, and professor. Although this volume covers practically all the important areas of political science - political dynamics, comparative government and politics, Philippine government and politics, political philosophy, political theory and methodology, and constitutional law - its foci are on Philippine government and politics and modernization and political development. What is unique in this volume is the attempt of Professor Agpalo to analyze Philippine politics and government by means of concepts, typologies, or models based on Filipino culture and history. Among the models which are found in this volume are those on political systems, interest groups, legitimacy, and political leaders; among the concepts elucidated are pandanggo sa ilaw politics and pangulo regime. This book is truly a major contribution to Filipinology, not only in terms of concepts and conceptual frameworks but also in substance - Philippine sub-national politics, national government and politics, political philosophy of Rizal, Jacinto, and Laurel, and political science, especially as it developed in the University of the Philippines.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What can anthropology and political science learn from each other? The authors argue that collaboration, particularly in the area of concepts and methodologies, is tremendously beneficial for both disciplines, though they also deal with some troubling aspects of the relationship. Focusing on the influence of anthropology on political science, the book examines the basic assumptions the practitioners of each discipline make about the nature of social and political reality, compares some of the key concepts each field employs, and provides an extensive review of the basic methods of research that "bridge" both disciplines: ethnography and case study. Through ethnography (participant observation), reliance on extended case studies, and the use of "anthropological" concepts and sensibilities, a greater understanding of some of the most challenging issues of the day can be gained. For example, political anthropology challenges the illusion of the "autonomy of the political" assumed by political science to characterize so-called modern societies. Several chapters include a cross-disciplinary analysis of key concepts and issues: political culture, political ritual, the politics of collective identity, democratization in divided societies, conflict resolution, civil society, and the politics of post-Communist transformations.

Pages : 298 pages
Rating Book: 4.0/5 (97 users)

Download or read book A Political Sociology of Transnational Europe written by Niilo Kauppi and published by ECPR Press. This book was released on 2014-02-14 with total page 298 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Globalisation and complex Europeanisation are two significant challenges currently influencing the restructure of the European nation-state, and redefining political power. For this volume, first-rate European scholars look at the consequences of these and other challenges faced by European societies. Contributions revisit traditional objects of political science – state sovereignty, civil society and citizenship – mixing sophisticated empirical analyses with methodological and conceptual innovations including field theory, multiple correspondence analysis, and the study of space sets. Combining qualitative and quantitative research techniques, and macro- and micro-levels, chapters have in common a contextual analysis of politics through scrutiny of configurations of groups, representations and perceptions. A transnational perspective is the common thread linking every study in this volume, which seeks to avoid methodological nationalism.
