Public Interest Litigation in Legal World
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Now-a-days Public Interest Litigation (PIL) is the most growing arena of law. Previously only the aggrieved person has the locus standi to go before the court for remedy. PIL is an exception to this. Due to social, economic and political reasons the disadvantaged sector of the society cannot go to the court for their grievance. it has been accepted that any individual person acting as pro bono publico may bring an action before the court on the ground of public interest. With the passage of time the question arises whether PIL can be filed for the interest of an individual? When any injustice has been occurred to an individual person who cannot file an action due to his lack of fund or knowledge about his remedy or having a powerful opponent, whether he should be left without remedy? Such will also mean that some persons having done some injustices are let free to violate the law. It is also contrary to the public interest. In such cases whether a PIL should be rejected merely because there is grievance of a single person not a group of people? The practice has begun to entertain such PIL giving a wide interpretation of public interest in limited cases.

Civil Disobedience, Solitude and Life Without P...
13,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) championed the belief that people of conscience were at liberty to follow their own opinion. In these selections from his writings, we see Thoreau the individualist and opponent of injustice. Civil Disobedience (1849), composed following Thoreau's imprisonment for refusing to pay his taxes in protest against slavery and the Mexican War, is an eloquent declaration of the principles that make revolution inevitable in times of political dishonor. Solitude, from his masterpiece, Walden (1854), poetically describes Thoreau's oneness with nature and the companionship solitude offers to those who want to be rid of the travails of the world to discover themselves. Life without Principle (posthumously published 1863) decries the way in which excessive devotion to business and money coarsens the fabric of society: in merely making a living, the meaning of life gets lost.

The Eternal Dissident offers rare insight into one of the most inspiring and controversial Reform rabbis of the twentieth century, Leonard Beerman, who was renowned both for his eloquent and challenging sermons and for his unrelenting commitment to social action. Beerman was a man of powerful word and action-a probing intellectual and stirring orator, as well as a nationally known opponent of McCarthyism, racial injustice, and Israeli policy in the occupied territories. The shared source of Beerman's thought and activism was the moral imperative of the Hebrew prophets, which he believed bestowed upon the Jewish people their role as the 'eternal dissident.'

Socrates, Pleasure, and Value
29,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the past quarter century, enormous philosophical attention has been paid to Plato's 'Socratic' dialogues, as interpreters have sought to identify which dialogues are truly Socratic and interpret and defend the moral theories they find in those works. In spite of this intellectual energy, no consensus has emerged on the question of whether Socrates was a hedonist--whether he believed pleasure to be the good. In this study, George Rudebusch addresses this question and the textual puzzle from which it has arisen. In the Protagoras, Plato has Socrates appeal to hedonism in order to assert his characteristic identification of virtue and knowledge. While in the Gorgias, Socrates attributes hedonism to his opponent and argues against it in defense of his own view that doing injustice is worse than suffering it. From the Apology and Crito, it is clear that Socrates believes virtue to be the supreme good. Taken together, scholars have found these texts to be incoherent and seek to account for them either in terms of the development of Plato's thinking or by denying that one or more of these texts was meant to reflect Socrates' own ethical theory. Rudebusch argues instead that these texts do indeed fit together into a coherent moral theory as he attempts to locate Socrates' position on hedonism. He distinguishes Socrates' own hedonism from that which Socrates attacks elsewhere. Rudebusch also maintains that Socrates identifies pleasant activity with virtuous activity, describing Socrates' hedonism as one of activity, not sensation. This analysis allows for Socrates to find both virtue and pleasure to be the good, thus solving the textual puzzle and showing the power of Socratic argument in leading human beings toward the good. Tackling some of the most fundamental debates over Socratic ethics in Plato's earlier dialogues, Socrates, Pleasure, and Value will generate renewed discussion among specialists and provide excellent reading for courses in ancient philosophy as well as ethical theory.
