A History of Philosophy in the Twentieth Century based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Christian Delacampagne account on the story and major contributions on political philosophy is, on my oppinion, one of the leading studies on modern contemporary philosophy. I would not hesitate in recomending it for students, political scientists and anyone interested in perceiving current lines of fraction in political studies. An European, prof. Delacampagne adds a particular approach to these area o studies not common in anglo-american common best-offs. I would position side-aside with Jonathan Wolff, ''Introduction to Political Philosophy'' or Leo Strauss and Joseph Cropsey, ''History of Political Science''. On my behalf has the advantage of a close generational view familiar to current European leading generation: the transition of a philosophical quest for liberty and democracy in western societies that at the same time must preserve order and security, If I can say it is a communitarian view akin with the French tradition of the Left and social-democracy. Its chapter on Rawls, Nozick (recently deceased at the age of 63), Waltzer, kymlicka and so many important liberals it'e very well sustained and articulated.
