This accessible book is invaluable to anyone coming to social and political philosophy for the first time. It provides a broad survey of key social and political questions in modern society, as well as clear discussions of the philosophical issues central to those questions and to political thought more generally. Unique among books of this kind is a sustained treatment of specifically social philosophy, including topics such as epistemic injustice, pornography, marriage, sexuality, and the family. The relation between such social questions and specifically political topics is discussed. These topics include: political authority, economic justice, the limits of tolerance, considerations of community, race, gender, and culture in questions of justice, and radical critiques of current political theories.? Updates to the Second Edition emphasize the non-statist areas of the subject and include two brand new chapters on social philosophy and transnational justice. This Second Edition also includes revisions throughout and coverage of recent theoretical discussions and world events.

"Halten Sie einen Vortrag über Volkswirtschaft, und Sie werden sehen, wie schnell Ihr Publikum müde wird. Erzählen Sie Ihren Zuhörern jedoch eine Geschichte, über die sie schmunzeln können, dann sind Sie in der Lage, ihnen fast alles beizubringen." Getreu diesem Motto lehrte der berühmte Ökonom Irwin Schiff seine Söhne die Grundlagen der Volkswirtschaft. Die Geschichte, die er Ihnen dazu erzählte, haben Peter und Andrew Schiff nun aufgeschrieben. Klug und amüsant an die heutige Zeit angepasst zeigen sie, wie politisches und ökonomisches Fehlverhalten den Zusammenbruch ganzer Volkswirtschaften auslösen können. Ihr Buch ist eine Fabel darüber, wie Politik und menschliche Schwächen dazu führen, dass die Gesetze von Angebot und Nachfrage missachtet werden - was bei allen Beteiligten zu massiven finanziellen Kopfschmerzen führt. Das Buch wurde im Rahmen der Frankfurter Buchmesse 2010 mit dem International Book Award 2010 ausgezeichnet.

In this re-titled and substantially revised update of his Classical Philosophy (2003), Christopher Shields expands his coverage to include the Hellenistic era, and now offers an introduction to more than 1,000 years of ancient philosophy. From Thales and other Pre-Socratics through Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, and on to Epicureanism, Stoicism, and Scepticism, Ancient Philosophy traces the important connections between these periods and individuals without losing sight of the novelties and dynamics unique to each. The coverage of Plato and Aristotle also has been expanded. It now includes, for example, updated coverage of Plato's allegories of the cave and the divided line and the metaphor of the sun as well as features of Plato's epistemology. Shields also adds new discussion on Aristotle's theory of virtue and his approach to the Socratic problem of akrasia, or weakness of will. In terms of its structure, Ancient Philosophy is presented so that each philosophical position receives: (1) a brief introduction, (2) a sympathetic review of its principal motivations and primary supporting arguments, and (3) a short assessment, inviting readers to evaluate its plausibility. The result is a book that brings the ancient arguments to life, making the introduction truly contemporary. It will serve as both a first stop and a well visited resource for any student of the subject. Ancient Philosophy offers a vivid picture of the ideas that flourished at philosophy's long birth and considers their relevance, both to the historical development of the Western philosophical tradition, and to philosophy today.
