Arguing About Political Philosophy is an engaging survey of political philosophy perfect for beginning and advanced undergraduates. Selections cover classic philosophical sources such as Rousseau and Locke, as well as contemporary writers such as Nozick and Dworkin. In addition, this text includes a number of readings drawn from economics, literature, and sociology which serve to introduce philosophical questions about politics in a novel and intriguing way. As well as standard topics such as political authority and distributive justice, special attention is given to global issues which have become especially pressing in recent years, such as the right of individuals or groups to secede, the nature of global distributive justice, the morality of immigration, and the moral status of war and terrorism. The volume is divided into 3 parts-Foundational Concepts; Government, the Economy and Morality; and Global Justice-helping the student get to grips with classic and core arguments and emerging debates in: political authority rights justice political economy property rights distributive justice freedom equality immigration war, humanitarianism, torture. Matt Zwolinski provides lucid and engaging introductions to each section, giving an overview of the debate and outlining the arguments of each section's readings. Arguing About Political Philosophy is an exciting introduction for students new to political philosophy.
