9780773511101: Reconciling the Solitudes: Essays on Canadian Federalism and Nationalism

Taylor is one of the world's pre-eminent experts on Hegel and brings to his reflections on nationalism and federalism the fruits of a more universal philosophical discourse rooted in the Enlightenment and before. Its hallmarks are terms such as recognition, self-determination, atomism, and modernity. Notwithstanding his long involvement in philosophical reflections, Taylor has avoided the role of the disengaged intellectual, always remaining close to political action and debate in Canada. To his philosophical discourse, therefore, is added a sensitive knowledge of Quebec society from the vantage point of an English-speaking citizen with profound roots within it. Taylor suggests that it will be necessary to think in terms of deep diversity if Canada is to stay together in the twenty-first century. Eight of the essays, published between 1965 and 1992, are drawn from the Queen's Quarterly, edited scholarly books, a research study for the MacDonald Commission on Canada's Economic and Political Future, and an English translation of his submission to Quebec's Bélanger-Campeau Commission. The concluding paper was written specially for this volume.

About the Author:

Charles Taylor is Board of Trustees Professor of Law and Philosophy at Northwestern University, Professor Emeritus of Political Science and Philosophy at McGill University, and former Chichele Professor of Social and Political Theory at Oxford University. He is the author of many books and articles, including Varieties of Religion Today: William James Revisited; Sources of the Self: The Making of the Modern Identity; The Ethics of Authenticity; Hegel; and the remarkable essay ???The Politics of Recognition, ??? which appeared in Multiculturalism (edited by Amy Gutmann).

Review:

"Taylor is Canada's leading political philosopher and the present collection constitutes a magisterial set of reflections on the Canadian predicament going back almost thirty years ... I have little doubt that the readership for this volume will be large and diverse, tapping not only an academic audience but a lay public as well. In these stormy times, with Canada threatening to go the way of Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, or the ex-Soviet Union, Taylor's views deserve the broadest possible dissemination." Philip Resnick, Department of Political Science, University of British Columbia. "The book displays a remarkable understanding of the political and social forces that shaped the Canadian constitutional debate of the last quarter century." John C. Courtney, Department of Political Studies, University of Saskatchewan.

Book Description McGill-Queen's University Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 0.5in.This collection of essays examines federalism and nationalism in Canada, emphasizing issues surrounding the CanadaQuebec question since 1971. It analyzes the singularity of Quebec within the larger Canadian mosaic, providing a reasoned defence for the recognition of Quebecs distinctiveness within a reformed federal system. The author brings to his reflections on nationalism and federalism the fruits of a more universal philosophical discourse rooted in the Enlightenment and before. Its hallmarks are terms such as recognition, self-determination, atomism, and modernity. Notwithstanding his long involvement in philosophical reflections, Taylor has avoided the role of the disengaged intellectual, always remaining close to political action and debate in Canada. To his philosophical discourse, therefore, is added a knowledge of Quebec society from the vantage point of an English-speaking citizen with profound roots within it. He suggests that it will be necessary to think in terms of deep diversity if Canada is to stay together in the 21st century. Eight of the essays, published between 1965 and 1992, are drawn from the Queens Quarterly, edited scholarly books, a research study for the MacDonald Commission on Canadas Economic and Political Future, and an English translation of his submission to Quebecs Belanger-Campeau Commission.
