European Reformism, Nazism and Traditionalism
69,40 € *

This study analyses the economic thought in Japan in the critical period from 1930 to 1945. It pays particular attention to how the contemporary Japanese received European and American ideas about the transformation of capitalism from a liberal to controlled or managed economy, and how they applied them to the economic system in Japan. They were interested in English thoughts for the reform of capitalism by the evolutionary ways: those of J. M. Keynes in his The End of Laissez-Faire , reformism of G.D.H. Cole and others. German thought of W. Rathenau and W. Sombart attracted the attention of reform-minded Japanese. The influence of National Socialism on them was far-reaching. This study analyses in detail how they accepted Nazism and amalgamated it into a traditional style of totalitarianism under the emperor system.

Gotthelf, A: Companion To Ayn Rand
54,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This expansive Companion to Ayn Rand's work provides vital orientation and context for scholars and educated readers grappling with Rand's varied and controversial corpus. Rand's work has been often ignored and sometimes disdained in the academy, yet she continues to fascinate readers with her dramatic novels, wide-ranging essays, and Objectivism, her philosophy of reason, egoism, and laissez-faire capitalism. After an informative introduction and a brief biography of the Russian émigrée who went on to celebrate and defend her vision of the American way of life, each chapter of this Companion focuses on a different area of the philosophy she developed, or on a selection of her writings. Several chapters tackle aspects of her views on ethics and the metaphysical and epistemological foundations of her philosophy. Others examine Rand's thoughts on political theory, her approach to literature (as both theorist and author), and her acute analysis of contemporary events. Taken together, the chapters provide an overview of Rand's distinctive worldview, relating the different aspects of her thought together, as well as relating each to philosophers and theorists in connected fields. This publication provides a thorough, scholarly grounding in Rand's varied and highly original work, offering the most wide-ranging and up-to-date survey available.

Adam Smith's Moral Philosophy
49,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Adam Smith is the best known among economists for his book, The Wealth of Nations, often viewed as the keystone of modern economic thought. For many he has become associated with a quasi-libertarian laissez-faire philosophy. Others, often heterodox economists and social philosophers, on the contrary, focus on Smith's Theory of Moral Sentiments, and explore his moral theory. There has been a long debate about the relationship or lack thereof between these, his two great works. This work treats these dimensions of Smith's work as elements in a seamless moral philosophical vision, demonstrating the integrated nature of these works and Smith's other writings. This book weaves Smith into a constructive critique of modern economic analysis (engaging along the way the work of Nobel Laureates Gary Becker, Amarty Sen, Douglass North, and James Buchanan) and builds bridges between that discourse and the other social sciences.

Ruskin & Social Reform
148,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the first book to analyze the form and influence of Ruskin's social theory, Gill Cockram looks at Ruskin's significant contribution to social and intellectual thought in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In a field often overlooked by 19th century historians, 'Ruskin and Social Reform' clarifies for the first time how Ruskin's social theory was disseminated to a much wider readership than was evident in the mid-nineteenth century and how it was that Ruskin achieved great prominence as a social philosopher. Cockram examines the chronological development of Ruskin's thought and establishes the extent of his influence among the nascent labour movement. It was the support of a thinker as original and as unconventional as Ruskin that helped to challenge the laissez-faire conformities of classical economics and launched the quest to find a more ethical and humane basis for social policy-making.

Economics in a Nutshell
38,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Many political lies bury rational economic thought today. Economies do not overheat. Progressive taxes on market set income are largely passed to consumers (by an increasing demand to supply ratio). Social security taxes are not shared by employers (corporate costs are forwarded to the market). Labor unions gain buying power by pushing minimum wage labor down (the national wage is finite). And monopolies always require political support. This information, while absolutely true, is not government approved. A natural economy is superbly controlled by supply and demand. But career seeking politicians dither with the money supply and create inflation, stagflation, wage gaps, recession, and depression in their gross economic ignorance and self centered pursuit of political careers. The author explains the economic interactions between private enterprise and political force. The political solution is a return to Laissez Faire. But can politicians arrive at economic truths in the aftermath of a politically initiated economic disaster? The depression Congress could not. And the new Congress is their clone.

The Shaping of Nineteenth-Century Law
183,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

John Appleton was a prominent American lawyer who practiced in and around Bangor, Maine, beginning in the early 1820s and earned a national reputation as Chief Justice of Maine's supreme court. Through a study of Appleton's life and thought, Gold shows how the commitment to individual liberty and personal responsibility helped shape nineteenth-century American law. By tracing Appleton's life and law practice, the book addresses an aspect of early American culture that has received little attention--the nature of American individualism as embodied in the law. The book contributes to American legal historiography in other ways. It is one of just a handful of serious studies of state judges. It adds to the current revisionist interpretation of laissez-faire constitutionalism. Finally, it sheds light on some little studied areas of legal history, in particular the history of the law of evidence. Recently some historians have recognized that law in the nineteenth century incorporated broadly held social values or world-views, and a few have written on the relationship between law and individualism. Gold contends these scholars have associated American individualism with self-reliance in the nineteenth century and nonconformity in the twentieth. Gold shows there is another side to individualism with self-reliance in the nineteenth century and nonconformity in the twentieth. Americans lived in society, therefore, their relations with one another had to be ordered. While they believed in freedom of action, they also believed that individuals had to be responsible for the effects of their actions on others. The book is ideal reading for all students of American legal history in particular and American history in general.

Adam Smith
18,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

E G West brings to life Adam Smith's first years in the bustling Scottish seaport of Kirkcaldy (and recounts Smith's brief kidnapping, as a baby, by gypsies). We follow young Smith as a student, watch his thought develop as Professor of Moral Philosophy at Glasgow, and enjoy with him the hospitality of David Hume, the Parisian literary salons, Johnson, Burke, Gibbon, and other giants of the era. West gives us a masterful summary of 'The Wealth of Nations'. Even more significant, West restores to eminence an earlier work of Smith's, 'The Theory of Moral Sentiments'. 'If The Wealth of Nations had never been written,' he asserts, 'this previous work would have earned for him a prominent place in intellectual history.' West takes particular delight in using 'The Theory of Moral Sentiments' to rebut Marx's assumptions about laissez-faire capitalism.
