This volume in the Critical Theory and Contemporary Society series examines the role critical theory plays in today's political, social, and economic crises, showing how it can help to both diagnose and remedy such problems. Critical social theory is first revisited by exposing the affinity between Marx's critique of political economy, the critique of instrumental reason elaborated by the first generation of the Frankfurt School, and the libertarian socialism of G.D.H. Cole. This is followed by a proposal for a radical reorganization of economic and political life and the corresponding development of emancipatory practices presupposing the reconciliation of humanity and nature. Lastly, the contemporary relevance of these institutions and practices are discussed, along with cases of contemporary forms of resistance, such as the Occupy Movement and alter-globalisation. By bringing together the concerns of critical theory and libertarian socialism, this volume not only illustrates the practical side of critical theory, but also highlights its contemporary relevance. Researchers in political theory, social theory and political philosophy will find this an engaging work that will stimulate debates about new alternatives to existing problems.
This volume in the Critical Theory and Contemporary Society series explores the arguments between critical theory and epistemology in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Focusing on the first and second generations of critical theorists and Luhmann's systems theory, the book examines how each approaches epistemology. It opens by looking at twentieth-century epistemology, particularly the concept of lifeworld (Lebenswelt). It then moves on to discuss structuralism, poststructuralism, critical realism, the epistemological problematics of Foucault's writings and the dialectics of systems theory. The aim is to explore whether the focal point for epistemology and the sciences remain that social and political interests actually form a concrete point of concern for the sciences as well.
يمثّل \"ديالكتيك الطبيعة\" واحداً من أبرز أعمال فريدريك انجلز، والكلاسيكيات الماركسية عامة. ففيه يبسّط الفهم المادي الديالكتيكي للطبيعة وعلومها، فيكشف عن الديالكتيك الموضوعي في ميدان الطبيعة ويعمم أهم نتائج تطور العلوم الطبيعية، ليبين أن القوانين الأساسية للديالكتيك عامة وشاملة، وأن المادية الديالكتيكية هي الرؤية العلمية الوحيدة التي تعتمد على العلم اعتماداً كلياً، وتجد فيه ميداناً لاثبات صحتها. ويتصدّى المؤلف للايديولوجية البرجوازية، التي عمل ممثلوها على إشاعة الأمزجة المثالية واللاأدرية في أوساط علماء الطبيعة. وفي سياق هذا يطرح انجلز عدداً من التنبؤات الهامة، التي أثبتت مسيرة العلم اللاحقة تمام صحتها.
"The history of the left is usually told as one of factionalism and division. This collection of essays casts new light on this history showing in more detail how the boundaries between marxism and anarchism have been more porous and more productive than is conventionally recognized. Bringing together original and ground-breaking pieces on some of the best and least known actors in twentieth-century socialism, this book promises to break new ground by providing a fresh outlook on left wing synthesis in the twenty-first Century. The political and social thought of Gramsci, Sorel, and the Trinidadian, C. L. R. James, amongst others, are discussed alongside key movements in 20th century socialism including the Situationist International, Socialisme ou Barbarie and lesser known council communists, carnival anarchists and anarchic currents in the American civil rights movement. This is a must read for students and scholars interested in the development of socialist ideologies"--provided by publisher.
The book addresses the issues of China's modern social order, as influenced by an evolving economic order and especially legal order. Ongoing Chinese modernisation is prompted by both domestic needs and WTO commitments, which includes both economic and legal reforms. Emphasis is placed on legal reforms, one of the most important areas of much needed reforms. The directional development of China's legal order has national, interregional and international implications, which affect the growth and prosperity of both China and the world's economy. A problem is an evolving inter-relationship between social order, economic order, and legal order, which can be described as either complementary or paradoxical. However, a paradoxical inter-relationship between these sources of order is problematic, because it effectively renders needed legal reforms that are increasingly more difficult to implement. This book explores both the complementary and paradoxical inter-relationship between these sources of order, the author proposes a "novel" and "viable" alternative for transplanting a more Western constitutional design in China.
Post-Industrial Socialism provides critical analysis of recent developments in leftist political thought. Adrian Little charts new directions in the economy and the effects they have had on traditional models of social welfare and orthodox approaches to social policy. In demonstrating the limitations of the welfare state and the associated concept of citizenship, this book suggests that we need to renew socialist welfare theory through the evaluation of universal welfare provision and a policy of breaking the link between work and income.
