Politics of Moralizing by Jane Bennett

Book Description

The Politics of Moralizing issues a stern warning about the risks of speaking, writing, and thinking in a manner too confident about one's own judgments and asks, "Can a clear line be drawn between dogmatism and simple certainty and indignation?" Bennett and Shapiro enter the debate by questioning what has become a popular, even pervasive, cultural narrative told by both the left and the right: the story of the West's moral decline, degeneration, or confusion. Contributors explore the dynamics and dilemmas of moralizing by advocates of patriotism, environmental protection, and women's rights while arguing that the current discourse gives free license to self-aggrandizement, cruelty, vengeance and punitiveness and a generalized resistance to or abjection of diversity.

Books By Author Jane Bennett

Pill by Jane Bennett Pill, Paperback (May 2008)

Explores the physical and psychological repercussions of taking the pill - from side effects, like weight gain and depression to cancer, to effective alternative methods of contraception.

Blessing Not a Curse by Jane Bennett Blessing Not a Curse, Paperback (August 2002)

A sensitive book for parents that dispels the notion of the curse, replacing it with a positive view of menarche and menstruation. It offers practical advice on how to explain menstruation to your daughter, help her cope with mood swings and pain, as well as handle such issues as contraception.

Enchantment of Modern Life by Jane Bennett Enchantment of Modern Life, Paperback (July 2001)

It is a commonplace that the modern world cannot be experienced as enchanted - that the very concept of enchantment belongs to past ages of superstition. This title challenges that view. It seeks to rehabilitate enchantment, showing not only how it is possible to experience wonder, but how such experience is crucial to motivating ethical behavior.
