Anarchism/Minarchism Anthology Now in Paperback

Anarchism/Minarchism:  Is a Government Part of a Free Country?

I’m pleased to announce that the 2008 anthology Anarchism/Minarchism: Is a Government Part of a Free Country?, edited by the late Tibor Machan and myself, is about to be released in paperback from Routledge (formerly Ashgate). It’s scheduled for the end of November, but can be pre-ordered now at Amazon (US here, Canada here, UK here).

At $55 it’s still a hefty pricetag, but it beats the hardback cost, which varies between $100 and $150.

The contents:

  • Lester Hunt: “Why the State Needs a Justification”

    Roger Lee: “Libertarianism, Limited Government, and Anarchy”

    Adam Reed: “Rationality, History, and Inductive Politics”

    William Thomas: “Objectivism Against Anarchy”

    Tibor Machan: “Reconciling Anarchism and Minarchism”

    Aeon Skoble: “Radical Freedom and Social Living”

    Jan Narveson: “The State: From Minarchy to Anarchy”

    John Hasnas: “The Obviousness of Anarchy”

    Roderick Long: “Market Anarchism As Constitutionalism”

    Charles Johnson: “Liberty, Equality, Solidarity: Toward a Dialectical Anarchism”

    Here are a couple of reviews of the original hardback edition:

CfP: New Springer Book Series: “Philosophy and Poverty”

“Philosophy and Poverty”, a new fully peer-reviewed book series published by Springer. The first volume is scheduled to be published in 2018. The book series is edited by Henning Hahn, Gottfried Schweiger and Clemens Sedmak, whose work is supported by an international Advisory Board. It is the first book series to focus exclusively on philosophical research on poverty, which is an area of increasing interest and high social and political importance. The book series is not restricted to issues of ethics and justice which dominate the philosophical research on poverty, but is also open to questions related to the philosophy of science, epistemology or history of philosophy insofar as they relate to poverty.

CfP: Workfare

Manchester Workshops in Political Theory, 7-9 September 2016

This workshop aims to take stock of the political philosophical and theoretical debate on workfare, to critically explore the normative underpinning of workfare and those of concrete workfare policies. Workfare will be discussed from various perspectives such as marxism, liberalism or communitarism and in connection to related issues such as the value of work and labor, justice within the welfare system, the wrongs of poverty and exploitation, or the place of the market in the distribution of benefits and burdens.
