    The State of Nature in Comparative Political Thought: Western and Non-Western Perspectives.Stefan Dolgert, Owen Flanagan, Eric Goodfield, Stuart Gray, Jing Hu, Murad Idris, Sungmoon Kim, Al Martinich, Abraham Melamed, Magid Shihade, David Slakter, Michael Stoil & Siwing Tsoi (eds.) - 2013 - Lexington Books.
    The State of Nature in Comparative Political Thought addresses non-Western conceptions of the “state of nature”, revealing how basic questions related to political thought are reflected in Chinese, Islamic, Indic, and other cultural contexts. It contributes to the burgeoning field of comparative political theory, and should be of interest to political theorists, regional specialists, students of globalization, as well as anyone interested in non-Western approaches to basic political questions.

  2. Hegel and the Metaphysical Frontiers of Political Theory.Eric Lee Goodfield (ed.) - 2015 - Routledge.
    For over one hundred and fifty years G.W.F. Hegel’s ghost has haunted theoretical understanding and practice. His opponents first, and later his defenders, have equally defined their programs against and with his. In this way Hegel’s political thought has both situated and displaced modern political theorizing. This book takes the reception of Hegel’s political thought as a lens through which contemporary methodological and ideological prerogatives are exposed. It traces the nineteenth century origins of the positivist revolt against Hegel’s legacy forward (...)

    The Jewish Question and Beyond: Universalism and Dialectic in the Confrontations of Marx, Zion and Intifada.Eric Lee Goodfield - 2003 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 2 (4):98-112.
    The paper represents a consideration of the influence of G.W.F. Hegel’s dialectical method on Marx’s analysis of the debate over Jewish political rights in 19th Century Germany. As a follow on, I will consider how Marx’s analytical insights and perversions on “The Jewish Ques- tion” may provide us with guidance towards an enriched understanding of the currently confounded standoff be- tween the State of Israel and the Palestinian indepen- dence movement.

    Wu Wei East and West: Humanism and Anti-Humanism in Daoist and Enlightenment Political Thought.Eric Goodfield - 2011 - Theoria: A Journal of Social and Political Theory 58 (126):56-72.
    Some contemporary authors have witnessed the flourishing of the Sinophilia of the Early Enlightenment and the direct impact of Daoist and Chinese thought on the ideas of Spinoza, Leibniz, Voltaire, Quesnay and the philosophes and have proceeded to make overt connections between the Daoist notion of 'non-action' or Wu wei and Enlightenment doctrines of laissez-faire. In contrast to such approaches, I argue that these frequent conceptual comparisons have often been inappropriate where touchstone humanist notions devoid of the Dao de Jing's (...)

    The Sovereignty of the Metaphysical in Hegel’s Philosophy of Right.Eric Goodfield - 2009 - Review of Metaphysics 62 (4):849-873.
    This article explores the relationship between metaphysical problems and political theorizing in G.W.F. Hegel’s thought. It argues that his Logic responded to the philosophical problem of the universal in ways which came to deeply influence his thinking about an ideal equilibrium between state and citizen in the Philosophy of Right and elaborate on how it acts as a conceptual touchstone for the legitimacy of rule in his vision of political life. This approach seeks to overcome a trend in Hegel studies (...)
