    Ethics, July 1999 v 109 i 4 p 739 Justification and Legitimacy ( ). (philosophy of the state) A. John Simmons. Abstract: Different arguments are needed to show that a state is justified and that it is legitimate. Justifying the state is associated with the treatises of 18 th-century philosophers. The Lockean approach to this issue captures features of institutional evaluation that the Kantian approach does not. Standard justifications of the state are offered to those motivated by objections to ...

  • Human Nature And Philosophy
    1,974 words
    Human beings are physical objects, according to Hobbes, sophisticated machines all of whose functions and activities can be described and explained in purely mechanistic terms. Even thought itself, therefore, must be understood as an instance of the physical operation of the human body. Sensation, for example, involves a series of mechanical processes operating within the human nervous system, by means of which the sensible features of material things produce ideas in the brains of the human bei...

    This distinction between what present-day scholars could call the practical and the systematic aspects of political science has been drawn repeatedly throughout the history of the discipline. Machiavelli's Prince and Discourses urge an appreciation of history, the study and emulation of exemplary leaders or great founders, and recognition of the role chance (Fortuna) can play in frustrating even the best-laid plans. In contrast to these books, Hobbes's Leviathan, at least officially, repudiates ...

  • Peace And Harmony Absolute Sovereign
    2,862 words
    A state is sovereign when its magistrate owes allegiance to no superior power, and he or she is supreme within the legal order of the state. It may be assumed that in every human society where there is a system of law there is also to be found, latent beneath the variety of political forms, in a democracy as much as in a absolute monarchy, a simple relationship between subjects rendering habitual obedience, and a sovereign who renders obedience to none. This vertical structure, of sovereign and ...

    Political philosophy? s are the theories and ideas of those who believe that they have an answer to the questions that politics raise in society. The questions that these political philosophers set out to answer range from describing what the state of nature is to what type of regimes are necessary to tame and organize the nature of man.

  • 16 Th Century Social And Political
    1,672 words
    Niccolo Machiavelli (Born May 3 rd, 1469 1527 Florence, Italy. ) His writings have been the source of dispute amongst scholars due to the ambiguity of his analogy of the Nature of Politics and the implication of morality. The Prince, has been criticised due to its seemingly amoral political suggestiveness, however after further scrutiny of other works such as The Discourses, one can argue that it was Machiavelli's intention to infact imply a positive political morality. Therefore the question ne...

    Political philosophy, that is, the philosophy of the polis, started with the placement of man at the center of philosophical inquiry Know Thyself (gn thi season), as was written on the frontispiece of the Delphic Oracle.
