In this important new work, J. Harvey analyzes what is involved in serious but subtle forms of oppression involving neither physical violence nor the use of law, and argues for the crucial role of morally distorted relationships in such oppression. She uncovers a set of underlying moral principles that account for the immorality of civilized oppression, and points to some of the implications for social and institutional life.

About the Author:

J. Harvey is associate professor of philosophy at the University of Guelph.

Review:

Writing with majesty and grace, and passion and understanding, Harvey challenges us to be our moral best by helping us to understand the intricacies of wrongful behavior. This work sheds a very bright light upon the road that we must travel if we are to achieve the hope of humanity―that which separates us from all other creatures―namely the possibility of mutual and abiding respect between all human beings. (Laurence Thomas, Syracuse University)

Without being ponderous, pretentious, or obscure, Harvey has made a strong and striking contribution to the theory of oppression, and a thought-provoking conceptualization of what 'moral' relations consist in. (Margaret Urban Walker, Donald J. Schuenke Chair in Philosophy, Marquette University)

The book belongs in the personal library of anyone interested in how non-peer relationship may become morally distorted. (Dialogue)

A strong contribution to moral philosophy's emerging appreciation of the importance of various kinds of relationships. (J. Kellenberger)

Book Description ROWMAN LITTLEFIELD, United States, 1999. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Silenced, discredited, stripped of powers of moral appeal, and deprived of the interpersonal conditions necessary for maintaining self-respect, many people suffer from serious but subtle forms of oppression involving neither physical violence nor the use of law. In Civillized Oppression J.Harvey forcefully argues for the crucial role of morally distorted relationships in such oppression. While uncovering a set of underlying moral principles that account for the immorality of civilized oppression, Harvey s analyses provide frameworks for identifying morally problematic situations and relationships, criteria for evaluating them, and guidelines for appropriate responses. This book will be essential for both graduates and undergraduates in ethics, social theory, theory of justice, and feminist and race studies. Seller Inventory # ANB9780847692750
