Unless Americans prove themselves willing to be as open-minded about the institutional arrangements of the country as they have been about almost everything else, they will continue to find their hopes frustrated. It is not enough to rebel against the lack of justice unless we also rebel against the lack of imagination. Roberto Mangabeira Unger and Cornel West argue that the path to progressive reform goes through reorganization of our economic and political instutitions; tax and spending are not enough. Breaking with the conventional ideas of American progressive politics, they show how we can stimulate economic growth and guarantee a minimum of resources for all citizens.

English summary: This is the first introduction to John Dewey's thoughts on liberalism and social action in a closed context. Against the backdrop of Chicago pragmatism, the American philosopher John Dewey developed his suggestions for solving severe sociopolitical and global problems, which are still crucial today in areas such as the health insurance system, unemployment insurance or world peace. John Dewey's thoughts, which are directed at the development of a critical action theory, may be seen as a proposal for developing guidelines for a modern and responsible attitude in politics. German description: Die vorliegende Aufsatzsammlung stellt erstmalig in historisch systematischer Sicht John Deweys Uberlegungen zum Verhaltnis von Liberalismus und gesellschaftlichem Handeln vor. Der bedeutende amerikanische Philosoph entwickelte vor dem Hintergrund der drangenden sozialen und politischen Probleme des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts seine kennzeichnende Position, die an den Maximen des amerikanischen Pragmatismus orientiert ist. John Dewey gewinnt diese Position durch eine historische Analyse der Entwicklungsstadien des Liberalismus und der Formulierung eines Kriterienkatalogs, der einer verantwortlichen Gestaltung einer menschenwurdigen Zukunft zu Grunde gelegt werden soll.Die in dem vorliegenden Band enthaltenen Aufsatze dokumentieren die Entwicklungsstadien des Deweyschen Denkens, das sich nahezu wahrend des gesamten zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts entwickeln konnte. Die von Dewey behandelten Probleme stellen dabei nicht nur historische Beispiele gesellschaftlicher Probleme dar, sondern erweisen sich als ebenso brisant und virulent wie zum Zeitpunkt ihrer erstmaligen Thematisierung. John Deweys Liberalismus und gesellschaftliches Handeln darf folglich auch als Aufforderung gelesen werden, endlich zu energischen und entschlossenen Losungen beispielsweise im Bereich des Krankenversicherungswesens, der Sicherung des Weltfriedens oder der Arbeitslosenversicherung zu gelangen. Deweys Pragmatismus stellt die tatige Mitwirkung eines jeden Menschen im Rahmen seines gesellschaftlichen Kontextes in den Vordergrund seiner Aufmerksamkeit, was seinen charakteristischen Dritten Weg von dem blinden Vertrauen in die sich selbst heilenden Marktkrafte ebenso wie von jeder Form des Praktikalismus unterscheidet: Es geht um eine Theorie der gesellschaftlich verantwortbaren Handlungen.

In American politics, at least since the Civil War, the great philosophical divide is between "progressives" and "founders" of the American regime. The quarrel has come to be defined in the media as a contest between liberals and conservatives. This book explores the ideological underpinnings of American progressivism. In doing so, it examines the foundations of modern liberalism and conservatism. The fundamental problem of any science of politics is to explain, however imperfectly, the sources of justice and injustice in politics: What are the "self-evident truths" that inform and drive the public debates? Over time the foundational arguments for justice and injustice, what people regard as self-evident truths, do change. This process of change is at the heart of progressivism. The original arguments of the progressive movement are obscured or largely forgotten in contemporary political debates. But in a myriad of ways, the original progressive arguments continue to reverberate. They need to be more fully explored and understood in order to seriously engage the differences between liberals and conservatives. Such differences are not likely to be overcome simply by a study of the roots of progressivism, but it is a first step in a more rational debate, which this book will inspire.

The Chicago Pragmatists And American Progressivism

Founded in 1894 at a peak of social and industrial turmoil, the Chicago school of pragmatist philosophy is emblematic of the progressive spirit of early twentieth-century America. The Chicago pragmatists under the leadership of John Dewey pursued a close critique of the modern workplace, school, and neighborhood which provided a theoretical base for the progressive reform agenda. Andrew Feffer here provides a richly textured group portrait of Dewey and his colleagues George Herbert Mead and James Hayden Tufts against the backdrop of Chicago's social history. In this nuanced intellectual biography of the Chicago pragmatists, Feffer retraces the story of their personal involvement in reform movements and examines how they revised contemporary political rhetoric and social theory in order to reestablish the foundations of democracy in productive and rewarding work. Drawing on liberal Christian reformist as well as philosophical idealist traditions, the pragmatists advanced a radically humanistic social theory that attacked the regimentation of factory life and demanded the democratization of industry and education. Feffer also gives an account of certain elitist and anti-democratic assumptions of pragmatist theory; he shows, in particular, how progressive reformers inherited the pragmatists' mistrust of the political impulses of the industrial workers they championed.

Am 3. August 2014 endet das Leben, wie Nadia Murad es kannte. Truppen des IS überfallen ihr jesidisches Dorf Kocho im Norden Iraks. Sie töten die Älteren und verschleppen die Jüngeren. Kleine Jungen sollen als Soldaten ausgebildet werden. Die Mädchen werden verschleppt und als Sklavinnen verkauft. An diesem Tag verliert Nadia Murad 44 Angehörige. Für sie beginnt ein beispielloses Martyrium: Drei Monate ist sie in der Gewalt des IS, wird Opfer von Demütigung, Folter, Vergewaltigung. Nur mit Glück und unvorstellbarem Mut gelingt ihr die Flucht vor ihren Peinigern. Sie schafft es in ein Flüchtlingslager und kommt von dort aus nach Deutschland. Tausende andere junge Frauen befinden sich bis heute in der Gewalt des IS. Deren Stimme zu sein und sie zu befreien hat Nadia Murad sich zur Aufgabe gemacht. Heute kämpft sie dafür, dass das Verbrechen des IS als Völkermord anerkannt wird und die Verantwortlichen vor den Internationalen Strafgerichtshof gestellt werden. Die Vereinten Nationen ernannten Nadia Murad zur Sonderbotschafterin, darüber hinaus wurde sie für den Friedensnobelpreis nominiert und mit dem Vaclav-Havel-Preises für Menschenrecht ausgezeichnet. Nun erzählt sie ihre bewegende Geschichte.

An original collection of the most influential documents in American history, from the bestselling author of A Patriot's History of the United States. Since 2005, A Patriot's History of the United States has become a modern classic for its defense of America as a unique country founded on principles of justice, equality, and freedom for all. The Patriot's History Reader continues this tradition by going back to the original sources-the documents, speeches, and legal decisions that shaped our country into what it is today. The authors explore both oft-cited documents-the Declaration of Independence, Emancipation Proclamation, and Roe v. Wade--as well as those that are less famous. Among these are George Washington's letter to Alexander Hamilton, which essentially outline America's military strategy for the next 150 years, and Herbert Hoover's speech on business ethics, which examines the government's role in regulating private enterprise. By helping readers explore history at its source, this book sheds new light on the principles and personalities that have made America great.
