Description - Introducing Political Philosophy: A Policy-Driven Approach by Andrew Walton
Introducing Political Philosophy is a thought-provoking introduction that invites readers to consider and analyse the philosophical controversies that underpin several prominent areas of political debate.The opening chapter familiarises students with the aims and methods of political philosophy. It explains the tools required to practice the discipline, and discusses how to apply these to political arguments. Each of the fifteen subsequent chapters focuses on a distinct area of public policy, such as affirmative action, humanitarian intervention, immigration, and parental leave. The authors introduce students to the moral questions that lie at the heart of these political disputes, as well as to some of the relevant academic literature.The authors believe that the best way to learn about political philosophy is to see it in action. By arguing for a position in each chapter and defending it against criticisms, they demonstrate to students how political philosophy can inform our analysis of public policy.This title is available as an eBook.
