    Evil in Modern Thought: An Alternative History of Philosophy.Susan Neiman - 2015 - Princeton University Press.
    A compelling look at the problem of evil in modern thought, from the Inquisition to global terrorism Evil threatens human reason, for it challenges our hope that the world makes sense. For eighteenth-century Europeans, the Lisbon earthquake was manifest evil. Today we view evil as a matter of human cruelty, and Auschwitz as its extreme incarnation. Examining our understanding of evil from the Inquisition to contemporary terrorism, Susan Neiman explores who we have become in the three centuries that separate us (...)

    Moral Progress.Philip Kitcher, Jan-Christoph Heilinger, Rahel Jaeggi & Susan Neiman - 2021 - New York: Oxford University Press.
    "The overall aim of this book is to understand the character of moral progress, so that making moral progress may become more systematic and secure, less chancy and less bloody. Drawing on three historical examples - the abolition of chattel slavery, the expansion of opportunities for women, and the increasing acceptance of same-sex love - it asks how those changes were brought about, and seeks a methodology for streamlining the kinds of developments that occurred. Moral progress is conceived as pragmatic (...)

    Evil in Modern Thought: An Alternative History of Philosophy.Susan Neiman - 2002 - Princeton University Press.
    The book is written with grace and wit; again and again, Neiman writes the kind of sentences we dream of uttering in the perfect conversation: where every mot is bon. This is exemplary philosophy.
  4. The Unity of Reason: Rereading Kant.Susan Neiman - 1994 - Oxford University Press.
    The Unity of Reason is the first major study of Kant's account of reason. It argues that Kant's wide-ranging interests and goals can only be understood by redirecting attention from epistemological questions of his work to those concerning the nature of reason. Rather than accepting a notion of reason given by his predecessors, a fundamental aim of Kant's philosophy is to reconceive the nature of reason. This enables us to understand Kant's insistence on the unity of theoretical and practical reason (...)

    The Unity of Reason: Rereading Kant.Paul Guyer & Susan Neiman - 1997 - Philosophical Review 106 (2):291.
    The thesis of this book is that Kant employs a single conception of reason throughout his analysis of the fundamental principles of natural science, morality and politics, rational religion, and the practice of philosophy itself, and that this conception is that reason is the source of the ultimate goals or ideals for our conduct of both inquiry and action, but never a faculty that yields cognition of objects that exist independently of us, whether sensible or supersensible. In Neiman’s words, “The (...)

    Moral Clarity: A Guide for Grown-Up Idealists.Susan Neiman - 2009 - Princeton University Press.
    For years, moral language has been the province of the Right, as the Left has consoled itself with rudderless pragmatism. In this profound and powerful book, Susan Neiman reclaims the vocabulary of morality--good and evil, heroism and nobility--as a lingua franca for the twenty-first century. In constructing a framework for taking responsible action on today's urgent questions, Neiman reaches back to the eighteenth century, retrieving a series of values--happiness, reason, reverence, and hope--held high by Enlightenment thinkers. In this thoroughly updated (...)

  13. Modern kwaad.Susan Neiman - 2002 - Nexus 34.
    De schrijfster ziet een paar opvallende veranderingen in de opvattingen over het probleem van het kwaad sinds de 18e eeuw. Terwijl de aardbeving, die in 1755 de stad Lissabon verwoestte, het optimistisch geloof aan vooruitgang en beheersbaarheid van de natuur aan het wankelen bracht, vernietigde Auschwtz in de 20e eeuw de toenmaals geldende ethische categorieën. Hierdoor blijkt het thans onmogelijk een niet politieke gekleurd antwoord te vinden op de aanslag op de Twin Towers te New York op 11 september 2001.

    What Reason Promises: Essays on Reason, Nature and History.Susan Neiman, Peter Galison & Wendy Doniger (eds.) - 2016 - Boston: De Gruyter.
    This collection demonstrates the range of approaches that some of the leading scholars of our day take to basic questions at the intersection of the natural and human worlds. The essays focus on three interlocking categories: Reason stakes a bigger territory than the enclosed yard of universal rules. Nature expands over a far larger region than an eternal category of the natural. And history refuses to be confined to claims of an unencumbered truth of how things happened.

  17. Understanding Moral Sentiments: Darwinian Perspectives?Hilary Putnam & Susan Neiman (eds.) - 2014 - New Brunswick: Routledge.
    This volume brings together leading scholars to examine Darwinian perspectives on morality from widely ranging disciplines: evolutionary biology, anthropology, psychology, philosophy, and theology. They bring not only varied expertise, but also contrasting judgments about which, and to what extent, differing evolutionary accounts explain morality. They also consider the implications of these explanations for a range of religious and non-religious moral traditions. The book first surveys scientific understandings of morality. Chapters by Joan Silk and Christopher Boehm ask what primatology and anthropology (...)

    Forgetting Hiroshima, remembering Auschwitz: Tales of two exhibits.Susan Neiman - 2015 - Thesis Eleven 129 (1):7-26.
    This paper uses two museum exhibitions to raise questions about how Hiroshima and Auschwitz are coped with in the present. The stake of the paper is to examine how it has been possible for different polities to come to terms with criminal pasts that should cause shame and guilt. The criminality of Auschwitz is established, but not that of Hiroshima. In the first instance, then, the paper establishes the extent to which the justifications for the bombing of Hiroshima were and (...)
