Invisible Foundations: Science, Democracy, And Faith Among The Pragmatists, Patrick J. Deneen Mar 2003

Invisible Foundations: Science, Democracy, And Faith Among The Pragmatists, Patrick J. Deneen

Pragmatism, Law and Governmentality

Today science is almost universally regarded as an ally of democracy. Religion - once viewed by Tocqueville as the great support of democratic mores, in contrast to the materialism of then-contemporary atheists who threatened to undermine democratic commitments - is now viewed by many as antithetical to the openness and provisionality that marks both science and democracy. As framed by the neo-pragmatist Richard Rorty, religion is a "conversation-stopper," the very definition of anti-democratic, anti-scientific anti-pragmatism.

Whereas a pragmatic form of faith, notably "democratic faith," secures belief in an ever improving future, the "politics of skepticism" is reinforced by the initial embrace of ...

Idolatry Of Land, Georgette C. Phillips Jan 2003

Idolatry Of Land, Georgette C. Phillips

Legal Studies and Business Ethics Papers

In his essay 'Holy Landscape: Israel, Palestine and the American Wilderness',1 W.J.T. Mitchell explores what he terms the 'paradoxical relation between landscape and idolatry'. Defining idolatry as a false god that displaces the true one with a material image, Mitchell contends that extreme Zionism has transformed the landscape of Israel into an idol where the visible and unrepresentable God is made visible and material.2 He asserts that landscape here stands for more than ideology. As an idol it condenses ideology into a potent stereotype for mass consumptionan idolatry of place.3

Critical Praxis, Spirit Healing And Community Activism: Preserving A Subversive Dialogue On Reparations, Christian Sundquist Jan 2003

Critical Praxis, Spirit Healing And Community Activism: Preserving A Subversive Dialogue On Reparations, Christian Sundquist

Articles

African-American reparations have the potential to deconstruct racial privilege, promote racial reconciliation, and heal the psychic injuries of the African-American community. However, many models of reparations have given up on the promise of reparations in exchange for the slim possibility of short-term progress.

A subversive dialogue on African-American reparations, however, will inevitably critique equal opportunity, individualism, and white innocence and privilege. Embraced by the majority, and internalized by the African-American community, the principles of individualism, equal opportunity, and meritocracy reinforce white innocence and privilege to the extent that future, current and past inequality are cast as the natural and inevitable ...


Development Of Catholic Moral Doctrine: Probing The Subtext, M. Cathleen Kaveny Jan 2003

Development Of Catholic Moral Doctrine: Probing The Subtext, M. Cathleen Kaveny

Journal Articles

A discussion on the contribution of Judge John T. Noonan’s works on moral doctrine to the study of Catholic moral theology. Professor Kaveny argues that Noonan’s writings have aided the development of Catholic moral doctrine by examining its rich living history and tradition. She notes that Noonan views the subject as a social historian who is interested in how Catholics have interpreted moral theology over time, tracing continuities and changes in their positions, and as a lawyer who is interested in learning how they have tried to find a balance between human dignity and the common good. Professor ...


The Boundaries Of The Law And The Problem Of Jurisdiction In An Early Palestinian Midrash, Natalie B. Dohrmann Jan 2003

The Boundaries Of The Law And The Problem Of Jurisdiction In An Early Palestinian Midrash, Natalie B. Dohrmann

Departmental Papers (Religious Studies)

In this paper I look at one particular exegetical complex through which, I will argue, the rabbis grapple with the question of legal jurisdiction and the status of revelation in the shadow of Roman legal hegemony. I will try to show that rabbinic midrash in its literariness (that is, as a source for the history of ideas, rather than a repository of more or less viable data for reporting history on the ground) is a valuable site for mining the mentalité of tannaitic culture (to the extent that we can posit such a thing), and specifically of tannaitic constructions of ...
