Violence: Thinking Without Banisters // Reviews // Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews // University of Notre Dame

Seyla Benhabib has an appreciative review of Richard Bernstein’s latest in the NDPR (not sure how someone didn’t pick out the year of Burke’s Reflections as about 30 years off), a book waiting for me in St. John’s and which seems to go chapter by chapter through works I’ve assigned for my own courses on violence: Violence: Thinking Without Banisters // Reviews // Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews // University of Notre Dame.

Defining Neoliberalism

Robin James gives it a go:

I think the term “neoliberalism” can mean something useful and specific if we’re more cognizant of its use.It seems to me that a lot of the confusion around the term is that it is used in at least two senses: one indicates a period in time, and one indicates an ideology. Just as “the Cold War” or “modernity” can refer to both a historical time-frame and a dominant ideology that shaped that historical period, “neoliberal” can mean both “now” and the ideology that informs this “now.”
