Egalitarian Conscience by Christine Sypnowich

Book Description

The Egalitarian Conscience pays tribute to the highly influential work of Professor G. A. Cohen. Professor Cohen is a philosopher of international stature and tremendous achievement, who has been vital to the flourishing of egalitarian political philosophy. He has a significant body of work spanning issues of Marxism and distributive justice, consistently characterized by original ideas and ingenious arguments. The high standard of rigour he sets for progressive thinkers, particularly himself, has been a source of inspiration for colleagues and students alike. The volume honours Professor Cohen with first-rate essays on a number of significant and fascinating topics, reflecting the wide-ranging themes of Professor Cohen's work, but united in their concern for questions of social justice, pluralism, equality, and moral duty. The contributors are scholars of international stature: Joshua Cohen, Jon Elster, Susan Hurley, Will Kymlicka, Derek Parfit, John Roemer, T. M. Scanlon, Samuel Scheffler, Hillel Steiner, and Jeremy Waldron. There is an afterword by G. A. Cohen.

Books By Author Christine Sypnowich

Social Self by Christine Sypnowich Social Self, Paperback (August 1995)

Drawing on the work of Wittgenstein, Marx and Foucault (among others) this study presents various dimensions of the debate on the self, identity and subjectivity, examining the senses in which we are "social selves" whose identities are bound up with our social and cultural environments.

Concept of Socialist Law by Christine Sypnowich Concept of Socialist Law, Hardback (January 1990)

In aiming to remedy the contempt for law prominent in socialist writings, this book looks at liberal jurisprudence to see how it fares in a socialist theory which takes a constructivist approach to law. The rule of law, natural and legal rights and obligations are among the topics covered.
