Abstract

This&nbsp;book offers a lived defense of liberal&nbsp;education. How does a college professor, on a daily basis, help students&nbsp;feel the value of liberal education and get the most from that education? We answer&nbsp;this question, as professors, each day in the classroom.&nbsp;John William Miller, a philosophy professor at Williams College from 1924-1960 and someone noted for his exceptional teaching, developed one form that this lived defense can take. Though Miller published very&nbsp;little while he was alive, the archives at Williams College hold unpublished notes and essays of this master teacher. In this book, Jeff Frank offers an extended commentary on one of these unpublished essays where Miller&nbsp;develops his thinking on liberal education. Frank&nbsp;develops the idea that&nbsp;presence&nbsp;is central to liberal education and offers&nbsp;suggestions for how professors can become an educative presence for students.&nbsp;The&nbsp;goal of this book is an invitation to other professors who value&nbsp;liberal education to think with Miller about how to develop their own lived defense of&nbsp;liberal education, each day, in their own classrooms. The tone of the book is meant to&nbsp;be invitational, at times even conversational, and the book concludes with some&nbsp;direct suggestions for how professors can live their own defense of liberal education.

Abstract

El libro ofrece la edición de los trece reglamentos que para la regulación de las oposiciones a cátedras universitarias se sucedieron desde la creación del cuerpo de catedráticos de universidad en 1845 hasta la Segunda República española. Esta edición viene precedida de un estudio preliminar que analiza las características de estas normas, lo que permite definir un modelo liberal primigenio (extremadamente centralizado) y su crisis, que comienza con la revolución de 1868. Entre 1870 y 1931 van apareciendo nuevos elementos que, además de proponer un nuevo modelo, ponen en entredicho la validez del mismo sistema de oposición para seleccionar al profesorado público.

Abstract

In the ‘broad church’ of the Australian Liberal Party, rarely has there been a maverick so unrelenting in his commitment to personal principles as Senator Peter Baume. Over a parliamentary career spanning 17 years, three ministerial portfolios and five party leaders, Baume was increasingly pitted against his own party room. In A Dissident Liberal: The Political Writings of Peter Baume, we learn of personal threats, crises, constitutional confrontation and the tension between conservatism and classical liberalism—and between ideology and toeing the party line. This collection of personal observations, speeches and commentaries on contentious policy issues presents a valuable resource for students of Australian political history.

Abstract

La publicación se propone profundizar en el conocimiento de las características y la evolución de las enseñanzas jurídicas en las universidades españolas durante la etapa liberal. No lo hace a través de una visión panorámica, ni siquiera de un conjunto de ellas. Los temas y enfoque que encontrará el lector muestran piezas individuales que sin embargo adquieren un significado más pleno al insertarse en el volumen. Tribunales de oposición y escuelas, la evolución de las asignaturas dedicadas a la economía, la peculiaridad del derecho mercantil, el contexto académico del proyecto de Código civil de 1851, la biografía de Juan Moneva Puyol, el antifeminismo jurídico, la metodología docente, los exilios... son algunas claves a través de las cuales podemos penetrar en la cultura jurídica liberal de España.

Abstract

A study of the (incomplete) draft of the Civil Code drawn up by the Cortes in 1821, within the framework of the ideas and texts of the contemporary European codification. It reconstructs the parliamentary life of the text in the Spanish Cortes and the biographies of the deputies who worked on it, in particular Nicolás Mª Garelly. The analysis of three relevant issues addressed by Garelly and his colleagues – namely the theory of legislation, the conditions affecting the legal status of individuals, their civil rights - completes the monograph, which also includes a new edition of the printed booklet (December 1821) that constitutes our sole source of knowledge. --- Estudio del (incompleto) proyecto de Código civil elaborado por las Cortes en 1821, en el marco de las ideas y textos de la codificación civil europea del momento y de la Constitución de 1812. Se reconstruye la vida parlamentaria del intento de las Cortes y las biografías de los diputados que estuvieron tras su elaboración, en particular el valenciano Nicolás Mª Garelly. El análisis de tres relevantes cuestiones abordadas por Garelly y sus colegas –la teoría de la ley, las condiciones que afectaban el estatuto jurídico de los individuos, los derechos civiles de éstos− completa la monografía, que incluye una nueva edición del folleto impreso (en diciembre de 1821) que constituye nuestra única fuente de conocimiento.

Abstract

The term Occupy represents a belief in the transformation of the capitalist system through a new heterogenic world of protest and activism that cannot be conceived in terms of liberal democracy, parliamentary systems, class war or vanguard politics. These conceptualisations do not articulate where power is held, nor from where transformation may issue. This collection of essays by world-leading scholars of Deleuze and Guattari examines how capitalism can be understood as a global abstract machine whose effects pervade all of life and how Occupy can be framed as a response to this as a heterogenic movement based on new tactics, revitalised democratic processes and nomadic systems of organisation. Seeing the question as a political tactic aimed at delegitimizing their protest, Occupiers refused to answer the question ‘what do you want?’, produce manifestos, elect leaders or act as a vanguard. Occupy: A People Yet to Come goes some considerable way towards providing the terms upon which this refusal can be understood within a changed landscape of political activism and the rewriting of the conventions of political protest. Including essays by Claire Colebrook, Giuseppina Mecchia, John Protevi, Rodrigo Nunes, Verena Andermatt Conley, Nicholas Thoburn, Ian Buchanan, David Burrows, Eugene Holland and Andrew Conio, the volume examines the economic predicates of capitalist economics: liberal democracy and its alternatives, the conjugation of protest and aesthetics, how occupy experiments with different types of leadership and how power, hierarchies and resistance might be understood using Deleuze and Guattari’s radical conceptualizations of debt; subjectivity, the minor and the molecular, occupation, dispersed leadership, territory, smooth space and the war machine.

Abstract

This book focuses on the global financial crisis of 2008-2009 and its implications for democracy. Why and how did the crisis come about? Are there any instructive lessons to be drawn from comparisons with the Great Depression of the 1930s? What are the democratic response mechanisms to cope with serious crises? Do they work? Is China a new trend setter? Do values matter? Are global democratic rules a possibility? These are some of the key questions addressed in the volume.

Abstract

Cultural diversity raises pressing issues for both political theory and practice. The remaking of the world since 1945 has led to increased demographic diversity within many states, and greater acknowledgment of its worth. “Multiculturalism” refers to the political, legal and philosophical strategies which emerged to accommodate this newfound social diversity, and the accompanying public debates. Each chapter explores particular state responses to cultural diversity, utilizing various disciplinary approaches but addressing common questions: What is “multiculturalism,” and why did it come about? What dilemmas has it posed for liberal-democratic governance? How have these been responded to in theory and practice, and are the different responses adequate? Are there alternative approaches to cultural diversity that have been overlooked? Issues covered include immigration, national minorities, indigenous peoples, nation-state building, liberal-democratic citizenship, constitutionalism, nationalism, group politics, political economy, secularism, globalization, decolonization, and the relationship between social theory and practice. The volume situates modern multiculturalism in its national, international and historical contexts, tracing the historical roots of present dilemmas to the intertwined legacies of imperialism and liberalism. It thereby shows that multiculturalism has implications which stretch beyond its current formulations in both public and academic discourse, casting doubt on basic assumptions behind modern liberal democracy, and even on the viability of the nation-state in its present form. The Editors’ overall conclusion is that reorganizing governance to be more polycentric in structure, and pluralist in orientation, would be a fruitful response to multiculturalism in both theory and practice.

Abstract

Le but de cet ouvrage est de donner une présentation aussi complète et aussi concise que possible du système économique et social de l’Allemagne, que les Allemands ont commencé à appeler eux-mêmes dans les années 1970 « Modell Deutschland ». Cet ouvrage montre que le modèle économique et social de l’Allemagne est un compromis démocrate-chrétien entre une tendance ordolibérale qui préconise des politiques de concurrence et des politiques de stabilité (au sens qu’on lui donne en Allemagne), et une tendance sociale, héritière du luthéranisme dans l’intérêt accordé à la formation, et du catholicisme avec les différentes formes de coopération entre les salariés et les dirigeants d’entreprises (corporatisme ou néocorporatisme).
