By: Laurie M. Johnson (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Johnson continues her analysis of the place of honor in modernity with a close examination of honor's treatment by two Enlightenment philosophers: Locke and Rousseau, concluding that Enlightenment thought is inherently problematic when it comes to developing moral obligation. Political scientists, students of philosophy, and communitarians alike will find intriguing questions in this book, which calls on us to recognize the flaws of the Enlightenment liberalism that not only determines how we govern ourselves, but how we think about our family, society, and economy.
Laurie M. Johnson is professor of political science at Kansas State University.
