The Immorality Of Limiting Growth

by Edward Walter, The Immorality Of Limiting Growth Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Immorality Of Limiting Growth book, The Industrial Age has ended, according to “no-growth futurism,” because the finitude of the earth has been reached. Its proponents maintain that technological innovation cannot save industrial society because of pollution, over population, and inflation. They call for a transformed society in which productivity, pollution, and population growth are strictly controlled. This volume emphatically challenges the no-growth viewpoint on both philosophical and empirical grounds. In it, Edward Walter demonstrates that the interests of those who are socially deprived cannot be fulfilled in a “steady-state” because the privileged classes are able to use their power to prevent redistribution of wealth and to retain their advantages. Far from equating technology with pollution and the depletion of natural resources, Walter sees it as the means by which resource shortages can be overcome and pollution control can be achieved. He describes and recommends an “essential liberalism,” that could provide economic development to all classes in a spirit of international cooperation—without necessitating the transformation of human nature and political institutions.

Rethinking Ethics In The Midst Of Violence

by Linda A. Bell, Rethinking Ethics In The Midst Of Violence Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rethinking Ethics In The Midst Of Violence book, Selected by Choice as an Outstanding Academic Book for 1995. Moving beyond the traditional feminist ethics of care, Linda A. Bell places an existentialist conception of liberation at the heart of ethics and argues that only an ethics of freedom sufficiently allows for feminist critique and opposition to a status quo imbued with violence. She offers a critique of Aristotelian, utilitarian, and Kantian ethics, analyzing each approach from feminist perspectives and showing how each fails women and others who resist oppression.

Promises And Contract Law

by Martin Hogg, Promises And Contract Law Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Promises And Contract Law book, Promises and Contract Law is the first modern work to explore the significance of promise to contract law from a comparative legal perspective. Part I explores the component elements of promise, its role in Greek thought and Roman law, the importance of the moral duty to keep promises and the development of promissory ideas in medieval legal scholarship. Part II considers the modern contract law of a number of legal systems from a promissory perspective. The focus is on the law of England, Germany and three mixed legal systems (Scotland, South Africa and Louisiana), though other legal systems are also mentioned. Major topics subjected to a promissory analysis include formation of contract, third party rights, contractual remedies and the renunciation of contractual rights. Part III analyses the future role which promise might play in contract law, especially within a harmonised European contract law.

Promises Oaths And Vows

by Herbert J. Schlesinger, Promises Oaths And Vows Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Promises Oaths And Vows book, Considering that getting along in civil society is based on the expectation that (most) people will do what they say they will do, i.e., essentially live up to their explicit or implicit promises, it is amazing that so little scientific attention has been given to the act of promising. A great deal of research has been done on the moral development of children, for example, but not on the child’s ability to make and keep a promise, one of the highest moral achievements. What makes it possible developmentally, cognitively, and emotionally to make a promise in the first place? And on the other hand, what compels one to keep a promise (or vow or threat) when there seems to be no personal advantage in doing so, and even when harm can be predicted? How do we know when a promise is offered seriously to be taken at face value, and how do we understand that another is only a polite gesture, not to be taken seriously? In Promises, Oaths, and Vows: On the Psychology of Promising, Herbert Schlesinger addresses these questions, drawing on the literature of moral development in children; the psychotherapy of a patient who regularly broke promises that were unnecessary in the first place; those who were regarded as "promising youngsters" who did not fulfill their "promise"; and those who feared making a promise, a commitment, or a threat out of fear that, once made, the utterance would take on a life of its own and could never be taken back. Furthermore, he illustrates his conclusions by examining the widespread use of promising in classical literature, such as Greek drama and the plays of Shakespeare, as well as the motivating and reifying power of the promise in Western religious traditions. With a style honed over the penning of two previous books, Schlesinger once again produces a work grounded in a firm analytic sensibility, but which also retains the wit and candor of the seasoned analyst. His seminal investigation of this all but neglected topic in the clinical literature is as timely as it is scholarly, and – with the title firmly in mind – Promises, Oaths, and Vows is assured to be a worthy addition to any clinician’s library and a provoking investigation into Nietzsche’s notion of man as "the animal who makes promises."
