Description - Defending Ideals by Drucilla Cornell
In Defending Ideals Cornell looks at the crisis on the left and asks how we can turn back toward more left wing ideals. The book addresses mainstream critiques of idealism and ideals, and studies the meaning of freedom though various lenses as well as the dissolution of feminism. Cornell threads and critiques Amartya Sen, Adorno, Martha Nussbaum, John Rawls, Richard Falk and Paul Berman, among others, as she reclaims a more liberal America, and looks at the future of freedom, and the meaning of equality and global development.
