First published in 1982, this volume is a collection of original essays by young British philosophers reflecting the state of political philosophy. For many years contemporary political philosophy could with justice have been accused of triviality and sterility, but by the early 1980s the substantive and normative questions were firmly back at the centre of debate - as this volume demonstrates. It falls into three parts. In the first the essays examine aspects of the conception of human nature that must underlie political beliefs - in particular the vital notions of interest and personhood; in part II they evaluate different and supposedly conflicting political ideals - liberty and equality, individual rights and socialism; and in part III explore the bases of acceptable forms of political organisation - where political obedience does not reduce to moral obligation and where genuine freedom of expression is possible. The essays do not stem from a single political standpoint, although all are written from within the analytical tradition. They go to the roots of these perennial issues with arguments that are clear and forthright, and as a collection they will serve as both an important addition and a bracing introduction to the subject.

Many philosophers and psychologists argue that normal adult human beings possess a primitive or folk psychological theory. Recently, however, this theory has come under challenge from the simulation alternative. Thi s alternative view says that human bings are able to predict and explain each others' actions by using the resources of their own minds to simuate the psychological etiology of the actions of others. The 13 essays in this volume present the foundations of theory of mind debate, and are accompanied by an introduction.

Canadian theorists and philosophers are recognized internationally for their contributions to normative debates about citizenship, multiculturalism, and nationalism. The fact that some of these thinkers are better known abroad than they are at home, provided the impetus for Ronald Beiner andWayne Norman to bring together new essays in a unique, single volume.The essays collected in Canadian Political Philosophy reflect a broad range of contemporary political and philosophical issues: liberalism and citizenship; equality, justice, and gender; minority rights, multiculturalism, and identity; nationalism and self-determination; and finally, topics in thehistory of political philosophy.This edition documents the impact that canadian theorists are having in political philosophy debates and provides an outline of the themes around which Canadian theory is focused. Many of these themes arise out of a particular Canadian consciousness--for instance, constitutional crises havecultivated an interest in the nature of political membership--but are also emerging as themes in societies aroud the world. Canadian Political Philosophy demonstrates how contemporary Canadian theory is both a reflection of Canadian experience and an important voice contributiong to the world-widedebates in political philosophy.
