Politics And Philosophy: An Anthology

Edited by William F. Pray

Publisher: Firebird Rising Publishers

This is not a book of philosophy, nor a book on politics, but a sweeping philosophical examination of stubborn social controversies, ideological theories, and thorny political imbroglios. From Plato and Aristotle, Hobbes and Locke, and on to Marx, Sartre and Wittgenstein, political conundrums such as the practical viability of a libertarian society, the fate of honor in the contemporary, political world, the authentic role of torture in interrogation. These and other thorny issues are addressed in the most objective and analytical way possible, that is through the lens of philosophical scrutiny.
