His main areas of interest and research are social and political philosophy.

Review:

“The book by Schweiger and Graf is an inspiring reading for all those interested in the topic of child poverty. Its main virtues are: first, it applies the CA to the specific situation of children, which is still a theoretically underdeveloped domain in the theory of justice. Secondly, it links the theory of justice to child poverty.” (Alexander Bagattini, Ethical Theory and Moral Practice, March, 2018)


“Those engaged in debates about child poverty and social justice will find Gottfried Schweiger and Gunter Graf’s book useful and compelling. ... This book is a comprehensive and engaging exploration of a range of issues relating to the well-being of children. Several features of the book are noteworthy. ... This book is recommended reading for scholars and practitioners wishing to strengthen their knowledge and capacity to tackle child poverty across the globe.” (Mario Biggeri, Journal of Human Development and Capabilities, Vol. 18 (3), 2017)

“I hope it will be clear that Schweiger and Graf's book is full of important insights and information. It provides a comprehensive theory of child poverty with very strong implications for political practice and thereby exemplifies a very successful blend of political philosophy and social science. Moreover, it provides a fertile ground for further philosophical and social scientific debate. It is simply a must read for everyone interested in the problem of child poverty.” (Christian Neuhäuser, Ethical Perspectives, Vol. 23 (4), 2016)

“Book makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of child poverty and the resources within the Capability Approach (CA) to analyse the ways in which poverty disadvantages children. As they note, capability theorists have not, until relatively recently, devoted much attention to how the capability theory might be developed and extended to children. Schweiger and Graf helpfully explore how capability theory can be sensitive to the special vulnerabilities that children exhibit as well as to their status as developing agents.” (Colin Macleod, Ethical Perspectives, Vol. 23 (4), 2016)

“Schweiger and Graf's A Philosophical Examination of Social Justice and Child Poverty breaks new ground and fills an important gap in the literature. The book provides us with a much needed platform for further discussions about the challenges of child poverty in our world today and about how justice theorising can respond.” (Krushil Watene, Ethical Perspectives, Vol. 23 (4), 2016)

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Paperback. Condition: New. 204 pages. This book is open access under a CCBY license. Child poverty is one of the biggest challenges of today, harming millions of children. In this book, it is investigated from a philosophical social justice perspective, primarily in the context of modern welfare states. Based on both normative theory (particularly the capability approach) and empirical evidence, the authors identify the injustices of child poverty, showing how it negatively affects the well-being of children as well as their whole life course. But child poverty is not given by nature. It is avoidable and there is certainly the moral duty to alleviate it. Therefore, Graf and Schweiger develop a normative theory of responsibilities, which clarifies the moral role of different agents in the poor childs environment: the family, the state and many others, that have so far been neglected in philosophical theories. They conclude their book by sketching how their theory can be extended to global child poverty and what it means to show equal respect and concern for every child - no matter where and in which context they were born. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781137559463
