Liberal multiculturalism  [cached]
Alexandru Gabor
Sfera Politicii , 2011,
Abstract: Multiculturalism is the most recent member of political theory family and also the most contested across Western Europe. Four prime ministers publicly acknowledged the failure of multikulti” and this contrast with the initially broad consensus in political theory on multicultural policies. Usually multiculturalism is associated with the communitarianism but there are three distinct types of justification for multiculturalism, namely the postcolonial, the communitarian and the liberal one. The article deals only with the evolution of liberal defense of multiculturalism in the political theory of William Kymlicka. Although his liberal culturalism” became gradually more sophisticated, historic and specific circumstances of Eastern and Central Europe limit the scope of multicultural policies in this area.
Scenarios of disaster, visions of liberation  [cached]
Steven Best
Revista Theomai , 2004,
Abstract: As the planet spirals ever deeper into social and natural disaster, with all things becoming ever more tightly knit into the tentacles of global capitalism, there is an urgent need for new maps and compasses to help steer us into a viable mode of existence. Karl Marx′s 1843 call for a ruthless criticism of everything existing has never been more urgent and appropriate, but all too often today critique is merely academic, stratospheres away from concrete action and progressive social policies. Yet, social critique and change in the slaughterhouse of capitalism needs to be guided and informed by powerful descriptions of what is -- the degraded forfeiture of human potential in a world where over a billion people struggle for mere existence -- but also by bold new visions of what can be, imaginative projections of how human beings might harmoniously relate to one another and the living/dying earth
The obesity problem as a challenge to liberal political theory  [PDF]
?urkovi? Mi?a
Theoria, Beograd , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/theo1103099d
Abstract: Spread of obesity and diseases that it causes brought to justified warnings of an epidemic. Author starts from classical liberal differentiation between self regarding and others regarding acts, and then raises the issue of the possible liberal approach to obesity problem. He presents real causes of the obesity, and proceeds with two different visions of contemporary liberalism: one, abstract, which doesn’t pay attention to context in which we have to draw the line between self and others regarding acts, and second, advanced, responsible liberalism of contemporary liberal democratic state which cares a lot about the context, including international one. From the first perspective state would be obliged not to interfere in overweight problems of its citizens. From the second it would be forced to do so for many substantial reasons. Although author justifies right and even duty of the state to deal with obesity problem, he insists that for the time being it is mostly reacting in wrong way: since idea of individual autonomy is not perceived in adequate way, state reacts to the consequences and not to the causes of the problem.
