Product Description

Divisions abound as to whether politics should be held responsible to a higher moral standard or whether pragmatic considerations, or realpolitik, should prevail. The two poles are represented most conspicuously by Aristotle (for whom the proper aim of politics is moral virtue) and Machiavelli (whose prince exalted political pragmatism over morality). The fourteen contributions to this volume address perennial concerns in political and moral theory. They underscore the rekindled yearning of many to hold the political realm to a higher standard despite the skepticism of dissenters who question the likelihood, or even the desirability, of success.

The contributors include: Jean Bethke Elshtain, Mark Stein, Stephen L. Elkin, Russell Hardin, Stanley A. Renshon, Tyler Cowen, Harvey Klehr, Robert Weissberg, John Haldane, James Bernard Murphy, Norman Barry, Michael Slote, George P. Fletcher, and John Tomasi.
