Michael Harrington

release date: Dec 17, 2021
Michael Harrington
In this provocative biographical portrait, Robert A. Gorman examines the political and intellectual life of this engaging radical thinker while looking ahead to the ways in which the work and example he has left us can affect political life in the twenty-first century. Michael Harrington's major attempt to Americanize socialism plays a big part in Gorman's analysis. He tells readers how it is possible to be both radical and patriotic and how an unjust system can be transformed without being destroyed.

The Dual Vision

release date: Oct 08, 2013
The Dual Vision
This study, originally published in 1977, focuses on a critical examination of the life-work of Alfred Schutz, the most important and influential ‘father’ of several recent schools of empirical social research. The author shows why Shutz and his followers fail in their attempts to ‘humanize’ empirical social science. The problems they encounter, he argues, are due to their attempt to achieve a methodological synthesis of self-determining subjectivity and empirical criteria of validation, based on Schutz’s heuristic adoption of relevant ideas from Weber and Husserl. This is, in effect, an artificial union of subjectivity and objectivity – their ‘dual vision’ – that satisfies neither phenomenological nor naturalist perspectives. Dr Gorman suggests that the radical implications of phenomenology must lead to a consistent, socially-conscious method of inquiry, and, in a final chapter, he re-defines the methodological implications of phenomenology with the aid of existential and Marxist categories.

The Socratic Method in the Dialogues of Cicero

release date: Jan 01, 2005
The Socratic Method in the Dialogues of Cicero
Recent scholarship has explored the complex heritage of Socrates in the Hellenistic traditions. Cicero claimed to be one of the rare genuine heirs of Socrates' method of inquiry by question and answer. This study takes Cicero's claims seriously and sharpens our understanding of Cicero's beliefs about proper philosophical discourse. Focusing on the passages in which Socratic conversation is displayed, the investigation reveals striking continuities with, and surprising differences from, the paradigm of the Socratic Method as presented by Plato. Even the perpetuae orationes that made up the bulk of Cicero's dialogues were thoroughly informed by his analysis of the strengths of the method. At the same time, Cicero identified weaknesses beyond its well-known rhetorical ineffectiveness. Significantly, serious criticism of Socratic dialectic is offered from the Stoic point of view. Assessment of that method as the Socratic inheritance of the Stoa and New Academy must accordingly be nuanced. .

War and the Virtues

release date: Jan 01, 2010
War and the Virtues
Just war theory has been provided the basis for thinking about the morality of war for the past thousand years of Western history. However, the nature of warfare has dramatically altered in the last 50 years alone. Saint Thomas Aquinas discussed about Jus in bello in his Summa Theologica. This paper will argue against the just war theory from the point of views of theological moral, virtue, fortitude, and temperance, not in undermining the established principles of jus in bello. Focusing on American decisions and actions, all three parts of the theory, jus ad bellum (justice of war), jus in bello (justice in war), and jus post bellum (justice after war) are used to review every phase of the conflict.
