9780072448115: Political Philosophy: Classic and Contemporary Readings

While many anthologies cover ancient and modern classics, Political Philosophy: Classical and Contemporary Readings is the only anthology to cover both modern classics and contemporary works. The issues covered are what seem the burning philosophical issues of our time: the justification of the State; theories of justice; liberty; State neutrality versus moral perfectionism; equality and equal opportunity; the nature and scope of rights; and national sovereignty, patriotism, and World government. Each part begins with an introduction to the problems debated in that part. Each selection is introduced with a biographical sketch of the author and an abstract of the reading, so that students can obtain an orientation to what they are about to read.
