The Obama administration is shaping up to be one of the most consequential in recent American history. In the revised edition of this book, now including new two chapters assessing the Obama administration and federalism and Obama as commander-in-chief, a diverse group of presidential scholars steps back from the partisan debate to consider the Obama presidency through the lens of the U.S. Constitution s theory, structure, and powers. This timely look at the Obama presidency establishes a constitutional yardstick of interest to scholars of the presidency, constitutional thought, and American political thought."

Gleichheit und Differenz

die Würde des Menschen und die Souveränitätsansprüche der Völker im Spiegel der politischen Moderne

Author: Seyla Benhabib

Publisher: Mohr Siebrek Ek

Category: Social Science

English summary: Are cosmopolitan ideals just wishful thinking today? Seyla Benhabib takes a historical and conceptual perspective in her approach to the paradoxes of equality and difference in the philosophy of the modern Western world. Proceeding from autobiographical reflections, she presents episodes in the cultural and political experiences of German-speaking Jews and their answers to the dilemmas of equality and difference, self-determination and assimilation. Reflections by Leopold Lucas, Moritz Goldstein, Hans Kelsen, Leo Strauss and Hannah Arendt help her to examine the paradoxical political experience in the modern nation state in view of the hybridity of cultural identities and achievements. Benhabib's central concepts here are "hospitality" as a reference to our own foreignness and problematic diversity, the jurisgenerative power of cosmopolitan norms and the idea of democratic iterations as processes of shaping politics through the law. German description: Sind kosmopolitische Ideale heute frommes Wunschdenken? Historisch und begrifflich nahert sich Seyla Benhabib der Paradoxie von Gleichheit und Differenz im Denken der westlichen Moderne. Ausgehend von autobiographischen Reflexionen prasentiert sie Episoden der kulturellen und politischen Erfahrungen des deutschsprachigen Judentums und seine Antworten auf die Dilemmata von Gleichheit und Differenz, Souveranitat und Assimilation. Die unterschiedlichen Reflexionen Leopold Lucas oder Moritz Goldsteins, Hans Kelsens, Leo Strauss oder Hannah Arendts helfen, die paradoxe politische Erfahrung im modernen Nationalstaat angesichts der Hybriditat kultureller Identitaten und Leistungen zu reflektieren. Benhabibs zentrale Konzepte hierbei sind "Hospitalitat" als Verweis auf unsere eigene Fremdheit und problematische Vielfalt, die jurisgenerative Kraft kosmopolitischer Normen und die Idee demokratischer Iterationen als Prozesse der Ausformung des Politischen durch Recht.

Politische Emotionen

Warum Liebe für Gerechtigkeit wichtig ist

Author: Martha C. Nussbaum

Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag

ISBN: 3518737422

Category: Philosophy

Page: 596

View: 3588

Wie viel Gefühl verträgt eine Gesellschaft, die nach Gerechtigkeit strebt? Nicht viel, könnte man meinen und auf die Gefahren politischer Instrumentalisierung von Ängsten und Ressentiments verweisen. Emotionen, so eine verbreitete Ansicht, setzen das Denken außer Kraft und sollten deshalb keine Rolle spielen. Martha C. Nussbaum hingegen behauptet: um der Gerechtigkeit politisch zur Geltung zu verhelfen, bedarf es nicht nur eines klaren Verstandes, sondern auch einer positiv-emotionalen Bindung der Bürgerinnen und Bürger an die gemeinsame Sache. Manche sprechen von Hingabe, Nussbaum nennt es Liebe. Sie zeigt, welche Ausdrucksformen diese und verwandte politische Emotionen annehmen können und wie sie sich kultivieren lassen.
