Short History of Distributive Justice by Samuel Fleischacker

Book Description

Distributive justice in its modern sense calls on the state to guarantee that everyone is supplied with a certain level of material means. Samuel Fleischacker argues that guaranteeing aid to the poor is a modern idea, developed only in the last two Centuries. Earlier notions of justice, including Aristotle's, were concerned with the distribution of political office, not of property. It was only in the 18th Century, in the work of philosophers such as Adam Smith and Immanuel Kant, that justice began to be applied to the problem of poverty. To attribute a longer pedigree to distributive justice is to fail to distinguish between justice and charity.

Good and the Good Book by Samuel Fleischacker Good and the Good Book, Hardback (July 2015)

Religions that center around a revelation-or a 'good book', which is seen as God's word-are widely regarded as irrational and dangerous, based on outdated science and conducive to illiberal, inhumane moral attitudes. Samuel Fleischacker offers a powerful defense of revealed religion, and reconciles it with science and liberal morality.

Philosophy of Adam Smith by Samuel Fleischacker Philosophy of Adam Smith, Paperback (June 2014)

Leading scholars explore Adam Smith's understanding of sympathy, resentment and moral judgment, his attitude towards aesthetics and theology, as well as the nature of intrinsic value and the merits of cosmopolitanism.

Divine Teaching and the Way of the World by Samuel Fleischacker Divine Teaching and the Way of the World, Paperback (April 2013)

Samuel Fleischacker offers a defense of 'revealed religion' - religions that regard a certain text or teaching as wholly authoritative over one's life. By reconciling it with secular cognitive and moral practices that allow people to work together regardless of religious difference, he shows how these two worldviews can be brought together.

What is Enlightenment? by Samuel Fleischacker What is Enlightenment?, Paperback (February 2013)

In this text, Samuel Fleischacker first explains and assesses Kant's philosophy of Enlightenment. He then considers critics of Kant's views - from Burke and Hegel to Horkheimer and Adorno - and figures he regards as having extended Kant's notion of Enlightenment, such as Feuerbach, Marx, Habermas, Foucault, and Rawls.
