9780742512252: From Yugoslav Praxis to Global Pathos: Anti-Hegemonic Post-post-Marxist Essays (New Critical Theory)

McBride offers a significant critical intervention into what is now recognized as a largely post-Marxian, at times liberal and at times conservative, spirit of the day, an intervention marked by writing against the post-Marxist hegemonic mainstream. Just as the Yugoslav philosophers did in their heyday ( from the Korcula Summer School to the gatherings at Dubrovnik's Inter-University Center), so too does McBride accentuate praxis as well as theoretical reflection on the present age. This marks his work with the pathos of a living philosophy. Like his previous volume, Philosophical Reflections on the Changes in Eastern Europe (Rowman & Littlefield, 1999), this book undertakes a most important goal, namely, to offer an informed critical assessment of Central and Southern Europe. But unlike its predecessor, this book is distinguished by situating various discussions of globalizations and neonationalist wars against the backdrop of the history, development, and demise of Praxis Philosophy ― the one-time bridge betweeen the progressive forces of former Yugoslavia and various East-West initiatives (e.g. the founding of the journal, Praxis International, which was changed to Constellations in the wake of civil war in Yugoslavia).

About the Author:

William L. McBride is Arthur G. Hansen Distingished Professor of Philosophy at Purdue University.

Review:

Drawing on the best of Hegel, the Marxian legacy, Sartre, and American Pragmatism as well as on his own rich experience in Western and Eastern Europe, William McBride has written a splendid and challenging volume. He skillfully assesses slogans such as 'post-Marxism,' 'human rights,' 'civil society,' 'the clash of civilizations,' and 'globalization;' excoriates U.S. consumerism, NATO's bombing of Yugoslavia, and Northern hegemony over the South; identifies serious flaws in the political philosophies of Habermas, Rawls, and Rorty; and adumbrates an appealing alternative that is democratic, pluralistic, cosmopolitan, and hopeful. (Crocker, David A.)

Masterful, coherent and insightful collection. (William Alejandro Martin)

This important book should be read by everybody interested in critical philosophical and social-scientific examination of globalization and its hegemonic political, economic, ideological and cultural tendencies. (Svetozar Stojanovic)
