    The Political Problem of Religious Pluralism: And Why Philosophers Can't Solve It.Thaddeus J. Kozinski - 2010 - Lexington Books.
    This book examines three notable philosophers' attempts to solve the political problem of religious pluralism: John Rawls, Jacques Maritain, and Alasdair MacIntyre. Although many philosophers have grappled with this problem, what has not been sufficiently explored is the reciprocal relationship of foundational belief to political theory and political theory to political practice. Kozinski, using thorough research and a high level of philosophical discourse, deals with these issues directly and astutely demonstrates how any solution that does not incorporate both political philosophy (...)

  2. The Common Things: Essays on Thomism and Education. [REVIEW]Thaddeus J. Kozinski - 2001 - Review of Metaphysics 54 (4):932-933.
    In The Peasant of the Garonne, Maritain criticizes the substitution of the simple word “common” for the pretentious word “communitarian,” remarking that “common is the right word; ‘communitarian’ is, in the present instance, a bastard word in which one find only [sic] because it sounds social-minded.” This example of the trend imperium that is modern education, using words to lead away from truth and toward desire, away from the common things of man and toward the private fancies of men, is (...)

  4. The Universe and Mr. Chesterton. [REVIEW]Thaddeus J. Kozinski - 2001 - Review of Metaphysics 54 (3):670-671.
    What is a book about the ideas of a self-identified journalist, whose targeted audience was the subscribers to a local newspaper, doing in a scholarly journal of metaphysics? The answer to this question is explained in this very book, in which G. K. Chesterton, the noted novelist, essayist, controversialist, and poet, is defended as a metaphysician as well. For Paine, Chesterton should not only be properly regarded as a philosopher, after the Angelic Doctor himself, but as the philosophical doctor for (...)

    Alasdair MacIntyre Vs. Pragmatic Liberalism.Thaddeus J. Kozinski - 2008 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2008 (143):7-21.
    Alasdair MacIntyre is one of the foremost critics of liberalism. As an alternative to the abstract utilitarianism and emotivist relativism of liberal moral theory, he has proposed virtue-ethics and “tradition-constituted rationality.” As an alternative to the individualism and bureaucratization of liberal moral practice, he has proposed the practices and politics of local community. He has presented his anti-liberal moral and political vision in his great trilogy, After Virtue, Whose Justice? Which Rationality? and Three Rival Versions of Moral Enquiry, in later (...)

    Schall on Chesterton: Timely Essays on Timeless Paradoxes. [REVIEW]Thaddeus J. Kozinski - 2001 - Review of Metaphysics 55 (2):416-417.
    A book with the sole intention of mediating the thought of G. K. Chesterton would seem unnecessary. Is not Chesterton himself known and loved precisely for his uncanny ability to mediate for us—through his utterly translucent prose—what often seems an incomprehensible and opaque universe? However, just as the multiple mediators in the Divine Comedy, the Virgin Mary, Lucia, Beatrice, Virgil, and St. Bernard, in virtue of whom Dante was finally proffered the visio Dei, did in no way dim his final (...)

    Cartesian Nightmare: An Introduction to Transcendental Sophistry.Thaddeus J. Kozinski - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 52 (4):975-977.
    “Strictly speaking, Descartes was not a philosopher; he was a sophist and a mytho-theologian. Furthermore, none of his historical descendants are philosophers. They are sophists and mytho-theologians”. Cartesian Nightmare is the first of three volumes constituting a radical reinterpretation of the history of philosophy wherein Descartes’s unimpeachable status as “the father of modern philosophy” is forcefully challenged. Building upon the work of Jacques Maritain in which Descartes is declared an “ideosophist,” Redpath argues that Descartes is not the father of modern (...)
