Drawing upon Hegel, Irigaray proposes a dialectic acceptable to every intercourse in addition to a dialectic in their relation. She argues for what she calls "sexed rights" and a correct of folks in keeping with the appropriate to lifestyles, now not the appropriate to estate. utilizing the result of her learn into the sexing of language, Irigaray analyzes how ladies search conversation in discourse with the other--an different, pre-occupied along with his summary or concrete item, who doesn't reply. She proposes one other syntax for verbal exchange, person who doesn't include the opposite because the item of the topic yet enables an oblique relation. hence "I like to you" replaces "I love you."

Crepuscolo di un idolo. Smantellare le favole freudiane by Michel Onfray PDF

Michel Onfray, coerente con sé stesso, prende di mira in questo libro una religione che, ancor più dei monoteismi del suo Trattato di ateologia, sembra dover ancora avere vita lunga e felice.

Example text

In contrast to ‘the miserable comforters’ (Grotius, Pufendorf and Vattel), Kant aimed to take the principle of equality seriously as a principle of international relations (Kant 1970b: 211; Gallie 1978: ch. 2). The main features of his conception of world politics are sufficiently well known to make recapitulation unnecessary here. In short, the approach sought to establish the absoluteness of reason and to overcome the division between contractarianism and universalism (Murphy 1970: 110–1). Nevertheless, the dominant trends in social and political thought did not coincide with Kant’s individualistic foundation for a world ethic; they ran counter to doctrines that supposed there was a distinction to be made between the norms of particular times and places and the values supplied by an overarching reason.

It may well be that the existence of a moral community more inclusive than the state can be defended only on the basis of the species’ capacity for collective self-determination. If this is indeed so, it may be contended that only within an international political association, which aims at maximizing human freedom, can the species express its unique capabilities while recapturing morally integrated lives. 2 The problem of community in international relations This chapter considers the problem of community in international relations.

Those patterns of behaviour are implicit in the character of the sovereign state itself, implicit in forms of political community that assume the priority of obligations to fellow citizens. As a result of this phenomenon the conflict between citizenship and humanity acquires fundamental importance in both the theory and the practice of international relations. For, as we have seen, what the existence of a realm of human obligation does is challenge the state as a particularistic moral community that generates heteronomous relations in its external affairs.
