Overview

The author's purpose in this text is to define the nature of value and restore it to a central position in discussions of ethical and aesthetic problems. Beginning with a broad view of postmodernism in general, a closer look is taken at attempts to reduce values to evaluation and deny objectivity.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Curtler philosophy, Southwest State Univ. finds philosophical error responsible for many of the world's problems, arguing that because influential thinkers deny that values are objective, they undermine the basis of culture. While postmodernists reduce truth to a struggle for power by competing institutions, insisting that we cannot grasp reality outside of language, Curtler maintains that the mind directly grasps external reality. In this grasp, objective values most definitely are included. Curtler makes an excellent case for his view of values and proves a worthy disciple of Eliseo Vivas, a neglected but outstanding American philosopher of this century who made important contributions to aesthetics. Highly recommended.David Gordon, Bowling Green State Univ., Ohio

Table of Contents

While government provides the structure of public leadership, governance is the art of public leadership. This timely book examines current trends in metropolitan governance issues. It analyzes specific cases from thirteen major metropolitan regions in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, all woven together by an overall framework established in the first three chapters. The distinguished contributors address such governance issues as city-county consolidation, local-federal coordination, annexation and special districting, and private contracting, with special attention to lessons learned from both successes and failures. As urban governance innovations have clearly outpaced urban government structures in recent years, the topics covered here are especially relevant.
