Boydell Press | 2012 | ISBN: 1843837099 9781843837091 | 304 pages | PDF | 27 MB

This book seeks to fill the gap through an exploration of the ethical paradigm or paradigms available to William through his extensive reading, and an analysis of his works in the light of the traditions of thought to which he professes his adherence. The author sets out to show how William combines the ethical systems he finds in classical literature with Christian doctrine following the pattern of the Latin Fathers, and applies these systems in his own theological writing. He also demonstrates how William's conception of ethics forms a constitutive element of his historical output.

On Voluntary Servitude: False Consciousness and the Theory of Ideology

On Voluntary Servitude: False Consciousness and the Theory of Ideology
Language: English | EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 0674637798 | 1996 | 289 pages | 1 MB / 0.9 MB

Those who approach the history of political thought must pick their way through a veritable elephant’s graveyard of grand theories. This book is aimed at one of the oldest and grandest of them all: the theory of ideology. The Age of Grand Theory has only recently ended, yet it is already hard to recall how many unquestioningly believed in the idea of ideology as false consciousness, most notably in Karl Marx’s version of that idea. Michael Rosen diagnoses the underlying question to which the theory of ideology was meant to provide the answer: “Why do people accept forms of political domination which it is against their interests to accept?” This book provides a historical and critical analysis of that answer and of the way in which it came to be taken for granted in social theory.
