    Hegel’s Critique of Liberalism: Rights in Context.Steven B. SMITH - 1989 - University of Chicago Press.
    In Hegel's Critique of Liberalism , Steven B. Smith examines Hegel's critique of rights-based liberalism and its relevance to contemporary political concerns. Smith argues that Hegel reformulated classic liberalism, preserving what was of value while rendering it more attentive to the dynamics of human history and the developmental structure of the moral personality. Hegel's goal, Smith suggests, was to find a way of incorporating both the ancient emphasis on the dignity and even architectonic character of political life with the modern (...)

  2. Spinoza’s Book of Life: Freedom and Redemption in the Ethics.Steven B. Smith - 2003 - Yale University Press.
    Most readers of Spinoza treat him as a pure metaphysician, a grim determinist, or a stoic moralist, but none of these descriptions captures the author of the _Ethics, _argues Steven B. Smith in this intriguing book. Offering a new reading of Spinoza’s masterpiece, Smith asserts that the Ethics is a celebration of human freedom and its attendant joys and responsibilities and should be placed among the great founding documents of the Enlightenment. Two aspects of Smith’s book distinguish it from other (...)

    What Kind of Democrat Was Spinoza?Steven B. Smith - 2005 - Political Theory 33 (1):6-27.
    Spinoza's Ethics is rarely read as a work of political theory. Its formidable geometric structure and its author's commitment to a kind of metaphysical determinism do not seem promising materials from which to fashion a theory of democratic self-government. Yet impressions can mislead. A close reading of the Ethics reveals it to be an impassioned, deeply political book. Its aim is not only to liberate the individualfrom false beliefs and systems of power but also to enable us to act in (...)

  5. Reading Leo Strauss: Politics, Philosophy, Judaism.Steven B. Smith - 2007 - University of Chicago Press.
    Interest in Leo Strauss is greater now than at any time since his death, mostly because of the purported link between his thought and the political movement known as neoconservatism. Steven B. Smith, though, surprisingly depicts Strauss not as the high priest of neoconservatism but as a friend of liberal democracy—perhaps the best defender democracy has ever had. Moreover, in _Reading Leo Strauss, _Smith shows that Strauss’s defense of liberal democracy was closely connected to his skepticism of both the extreme (...)

    An Exemplary Life: The Case of René Descartes.Steven B. Smith - 2004 - Review of Metaphysics 57 (3):571 - 597.
    IT IS A TRUTH UNIVERSALLY ACKNOWLEDGED THAT René Descartes is the founder of modern philosophy. There is far less consensus on the question of what his modernity means. The majority of Descartes’s readers have focused on the cogito, the “I think” that is the fons et origo of all knowledge. The method of doubt and the famous rules of evidence have played a crucial role in the formation of a distinctively modern search for foundations of truth. Political theorists have frequently (...)

    Spinoza's Democratic Turn: Chapter 16 of the Theologico-Political Treatise.Steven B. Smith - 1994 - Review of Metaphysics 48 (2):359 - 388.
    There are several reasons that have contributed to the neglect of the Treatise as a classic of modern democratic theory. In the first place, Spinoza's political theory is buried three quarters of the way through the Treatise and comes to light only after the reader has slogged through a long and painstaking discussion of biblical philology and criticism. Second, Spinoza's defense of democracy is undergirded by a naturalistic metaphysics that is more immoralist than Hobbes and scarcely to the taste of (...)

Is it a punishment for sinfulness or proscribed by the natural law? Can one sell oneself into slavery as the result of a free exchange, or is slavery prohibited by virtue of the natural rights of the individual? Is slavery a necessary moment in the struggle of human beings to attain mutual recognition (...)

    Marx's Ethics of Freedom.Steven B. Smith - 1984 - Review of Metaphysics 38 (1):115-116.
    The problem confronting any book on Marxist ethics is that Marx routinely ridiculed moral language as a species of ideology and those who used it as either self-deceived utopians or cynical apologists for the status quo. The discovery of historical materialism was for him both a principle of explanation or causation and a surrogate for moral norms. These difficulties notwithstanding, George G. Brenkert has written a lucid and intelligent book that tries to establish an ethical foundation for Marxism. The work (...)

    Isaiah Berlin was a central figure in twentieth-century political thought. This volume highlights Berlin's significance for contemporary readers, covering not only his writings on liberty and liberalism, the Enlightenment and Romanticism, Russian thinkers and pluralism, but also the implications of his thought for political theory, history, and the social sciences, as well as the ethical challenges confronting political actors, and the nature and importance of practical judgment for politics and scholarship. His name and work are inseparable from the revival of (...)
