The second part presents and critically discusses arguments against workplace democracy that are based on considerations of efficiency, the difficulties of a transition towards democratic firms, and liberal commitments such as the rights of employees and owners to work for or invest in non-democratic firms. The conclusion summarizes the debate and argues that experiments with democratic workplaces as what Erik Olin Wright calls "real utopias" could deliver new insights and thus move the discussion forward. Reflexive cooperation between fraternity and social involvement more.
This paper explores Axel Honneth's long-standing philosophical interest for solidarity in the larger context of contemporary theories of democracy. It identifies three models to which Honneth resorts to conceptualize solidarity, and which It identifies three models to which Honneth resorts to conceptualize solidarity, and which he tries to reconcile: abstract solidarity, fraternal coexistence, and reflexive cooperation. The paper examines these three models in turn, retracing them back to different works and moments of Honneth's career, and relates them to the three intellectual tradition that have had the larger influence on Honneth's thought: Hegelianism, socialism, and American pragmatism.
The Social ontology of democracy more. This paper offers an account of the social foundations of a theory of democracy. It purports to show that a social ontology of democracy is the necessary counterpart of a political theory of democracy. It notably contends that decisions It notably contends that decisions concerning basic social ontological assumptions are relevant not only for empirical research, but bear a significant impact also on normative theorizing.
The paper then explains why interactionist rather than substantialist social ontologies provide the most promising starting point for building a social ontology of democracy. It then intro- duces and examines the three notions of habits, patterns of interaction, and forms of social organization, conceived as the main pillars of an inter- actionist social ontology of democracy and briefly discusses some major implications of this approach for democratic theory.

The article contends that the state-firm analogy is misguided for at least three reasons: 1 it is structurally inconclusive, 2 it is based on a category mistake, and 3 it leads us away from the central question we should ask, which is: What would concretely imply, and what is required, in order to democratize the workplace? I then proceed to examine more recent contributions to the debate and show that supporters and critics of the state-firm analogy alike do not advance our understanding of the analogical argument.
In the last part of the article I provide a general theoretical explanation of why arguments based on the state-firm analogy are not good candidates for defending workplace democracy. I claim, in particular, that the institutional asymmetry that exists between the state and the firm makes the analogical strategy unsuited to the task. The negative strategy undertaken in the article is meant to open the way for more promising approaches to the justification workplace democracy.
Democracy and the limits of political realism more. This article explores the recent resurgence of realism in the political sciences, questioning its relevance for democratic theory. Starting from a critical review of recent works in the field, the article calls into question the relevance Starting from a critical review of recent works in the field, the article calls into question the relevance of empirical investigations of political reality for normative theorizing, and contends that some of the normative conclusions advanced in this literature are not warranted.
More precisely, the article questions the reliability of studies of political behavior and of political opinion as a sound basis on which to draw normative inferences about democratic legitimacy. It contends that the kind of epistemic realism their authors promote cannot deliver what it promises. The article concludes by proposing an alternative interpretation of the democratic principle as a practical postulate of political reason that reconciles empirical evidence about political behavior with the classical interpretation of democratic legitimacy.
The aim of this paper is to draw the attention of political theorists to the once popular and today too much neglected role of character in fashioning democratic politics. I do this through a discussion of what I consider the two most I do this through a discussion of what I consider the two most promising contemporary approaches: the republican theory of civic virtues and the pragmatist theory of democratic habits.
My claim is that habits, more than virtues, provide a promising starting point for enriching our understanding of democracy. The paper proceeds as follows. After having clarified the philosophical grammars of virtues and habits and their stakes, I discuss at some length the republican theory of civic virtues, distinguishing its two main branches, the neo-Athenian and the neo-Roman, and showing that both run into significant theoretical troubles. I then proceed to examine the pragmatist account of political habits and show that it proves more successful than republican virtues in explaining how different trait of character could be integrated into a normative account of democracy.
The Normativity of Democracy more. The aim of this paper is to advance our understanding of the normative grammar of the concept of democracy by distinguishing two levels at which a political concept may play a normative function, and proceeds by analyzing the concept of The aim of this paper is to advance our understanding of the normative grammar of the concept of democracy by distinguishing two levels at which a political concept may play a normative function, and proceeds by analyzing the concept of democracy at these two levels.
It distinguishes in particular between normativity as 'norm-compliance' and normativity as 'paradigmatic' and contends that the concept of democracy has a normative content that extends over both levels. A model of democracy consistent with this approach is then outlined based on a sociological account of democratic patterns of interaction. The structure of the paper is as follows.
In sections one and two I distinguish two meanings of normativity and introduce the concept of 'paradigm normativity'. In section three I provide examples of rival 'paradigm normative' concepts. In section four I provide an account of democracy as a 'paradigm normative' concept and in sections five and six I present its two most important theoretical features. A model of democracy consistent with this approach is then outlined. The article has a hermeneutical or articulatory rather than justificatory aim.
No attempt will be made to provide a justification either of democracy in general or of this specific account. Indeed, the whole thrust of the exercise is to advance our understanding of the theoretical potential of the concept of democracy, conceived as a norm for collective action.
Rejet et attachement
This aim explains why a purely conceptual strategy is avoided, and historical and sociological arguments are introduced so as to give empirical substance to ideas. My expectation is that such an exercise will help us improve our understanding of the democratic project, which has shaped western, and, at increasing pace, non-western societies over the last two centuries. In particular, I wish to reflect upon what is gained and what is lost by making democracy the cornerstone of political theorizing. In section three I provide examples of rival 'paradigm normative'.
The Wide View of Democracy more. This article compares the theories of democracy of John Dewey and Claude Lefort, identifying some common themes in their otherwise radically different philosophical outlooks. In so doing, it attempts to analyze the philosophical Such an approach offers an alternative both to the classical-liberal and to the critical-radical projects which still dominate contemporary political philosophy. It then indicates some of the potential advantages of such a 'wide view' for contemporary debates in democratic theory. The Normative Structure of the Ordinary more.
This paper aims to develop a new understanding of normativity based upon the priority of the ordinary. By relying upon diverse sociological and philosophical traditions, the paper seeks to emphasize the ordinary tacit assumptions which By relying upon diverse sociological and philosophical traditions, the paper seeks to emphasize the ordinary tacit assumptions which provide the basic structure of our experience of the world and its normative features. The paper synthesizes the main achievements of these traditions into a unified account of normativity.
In this paper I offer a first account of a practice-based conception of normativity for the political domain. This standpoint is used to relocate the most sophisticated normative practices of justification and critique within an I begin by discussing the two major paradigms in political theory showing that their neglect of this broad framework of normativity is a serious drawback. I then proceed to articulate the central elements of a practice-based account of normativity: the notions of normative practices and normative orders and an account of the rationality potential of normativity as practice.
Pragmatizing Critical Theory's province more. Whilst proximities between pragmatism and critical theory have been noted by several scholars, no attempt has been made so far to provide an all-encompassing philosophical interpretation of critical theory's appraisal of pragmatist Whilst proximities between pragmatism and critical theory have been noted by several scholars, no attempt has been made so far to provide an all-encompassing philosophical interpretation of critical theory's appraisal of pragmatist themes.
Via the historical reconstruction of the ways in which pragmatist themes have been appropriated, I want to show that faced with major theoretical shortcomings in the works of Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno, their successors have generally resorted to pragmatists in the search for more promising solutions. This trend has concerned two major areas of critical theory: the methodological foundation of a critical theory of society and the identification of the political conditions under which social emancipation is possible. I contend that with respect to both themes a steady process of progressive pragmatization of the Frankfurt school of critical theory has been going on for more than half a century, and I contend that this project needs to be further completed if the threats of " normative defeatism " Habermas diagnosed in Horkheimer's and Adorno's later works is to be superseded once and for all.

This paper discusses the advantages of a pragmatist theory of global democracy for understanding the political relevance of new phenomena such as the emergence of forms of private authority and transnational movements in tackling with This paper discusses the advantages of a pragmatist theory of global democracy for understanding the political relevance of new phenomena such as the emergence of forms of private authority and transnational movements in tackling with global issues..
The paper shows in particular that the pragmatist notion of 'publics' offers promising insights and proves particularly promising for completing the transition from methodological nationalism to methodological cosmopolitanism that is required to understand new normative practices developing at the global level and to inquire into their conditions of validity. After having presented a basic outline of the pragmatist theory of democracy, I discuss the contribution of pragmatism to the critique of methodological nationalism and proceed then to examine and reject two alternative approaches to global politics — transnational public sphere theory and global representation theory — showing why they fail to overcome methodological nationalism.
The last two sections explore private entrepreneurial authority in contexts of global governance and shows that pragmatism succeeds in explaining their political role, while the other two approaches fail.
This paper aims at showing the potential of pragmatism as an interpretative framework for discussing normative political issues in the global domain. After briefly describing the basic tenets of political pragmatism, the paper explores some of its implications for understanding trends in global politics that defy mainstream categorial schemes. It does so by focusing upon the notion of 'public' as it is understood in the pragmatist tradition,. This article critically examines two central concepts in normative theory—ethical life and morality—by comparing the pragmatist approach with that of Critical Theory.
That will pro- vide the background against which to set up a comparison between the pragmatist conception of normativity and that of Critical Theory, with a view to assessing their relative validity.

In par- ticular, it contends that the resources of pragmatism for advancing a project of emancipatory social In par- ticular, it contends that the resources of pragmatism for advancing a project of emancipatory social philosophy have so far been neglected. Af- ter contrasting the two major traditions in social philosophy—the analyt- ical and the critical—I proceed to outline the main traits of a pragmatist social philosophy.
By inscribing pragmatism within the tradition of social philosophy my aim is to promote a new understanding of pragmatism as one of the central Euro-American traditions in social and political philoso- phy, deserving to be on an equal footing with critical theory and political liberalism.
And, furthermore, one whose critical and radical force may be of great help in the wake of the dismissal of the metaphysical certain- ties upon which the critical program of social philosophy had once set its hopes of social emancipation. View on springer. Moral inquiry and the pragmatic basis of objectivity more.
This article defends a pragmatic conception of objectivity for the moral domain. My general argument is that in order to defend a pragmatic approach to objectivity the pragmatic stance should be interpreted in more radical terms than most contemporary proposals do. I propose notably to disentangle the connection between objectivity and truth, claiming that moral inquiry is in most of the cases responsive to a discursive norm that is closer to warranted assertibility than to truth.
Using an argument that relies partly on Huw Price's account of forms of normative assertion, I will show that a practice-based account of warranted assertibility does the epistemic work required to defend objectivity while not being exposed to the criticisms that are usually addressed against this notion.
The first section sets the general argument within its pragmatic context. The second section outlines Misak's conception of pragmatic objectivity, and highlights the sense in which she makes moral objectivity depend upon truth. The third and the fourth sections provide two critical arguments against Misak's thesis.
Finally, with the critical work done, in the last section I present my constructive account of pragmatic objectivity for the moral domain. A tale of two social philosophies more. Another that is closer to the program of a critical theory of society initially developed by Karl Marx and subsequently expanded by the Frankfurt School. Qu'est-ce qu'une pratique? Credo che sia almeno uguale a Boule de suif, se non superiore, scrisse Maupassant di La maison Tellier.
Lo si vede ad esempio in Histoire d'une fille de ferme, un minuscolo romanzo d'appendice, in cui il timore e l'autocolpevolizzazione della ragazza madre vengono di fatto superate da un'esplosione di buonsenso contadino.

I am now happy. Thank you. Mar 26, Skip rated it it was amazing.
Maupassant is a lavish writer. It is as if he writes with a paintbrush. He is a fine artist of the pen. Dec 20, Dino added it. Je le recommande comme moyen de torture dans les prisons scandinaves.!! The version I read had Tellier and a selection of Maupassant's other short stories. These stories are surprisingly brutal and unusual, covering a wide range of shocking topics and situations rape, incest, racism, poverty, crime, greed, abuse and worse.
There is very little sentimentality here. There is some humor.
Powys captures Maupassant particularly well in his discussion. Sep 01, Aditya Mallya rated it liked it. The characters are well observed as you would expect, but this story did not strike me quite as keenly as Maupassant's best ones did. I am not sure if there is something I've missed in this tale about a group of prostitutes and their matronly keeper who undertake a trip to a village - it is clearly a story of redemption on some level, but I am not sure exactly how.
Perhaps appreciating it requires a keener understanding of French culture at the time. Read in French. The title story is a jolly and witty, feel-good story about a brothel madam Tellier and her "girls" whose absence gives pain to local men Chapter 1 , whose presence brings a joyful and transcending experience in a Communion chapter 2 , and whose return brings the life back in town again Chapter 3. A definitely humorous take on prostitution just as warmly as the local bakery. Will continue to read other stories in different settings.
La maison Tellier est une histoire amusante. I really enjoyed the details in the story, Yvette. I could see the images in my mind. La maison Tellier is a fun story to read. These stories contain material that some people would find morally objectionable. Was given to me by a friend who accidently bought it not realizing that she'd already read it.
