Publisher Comments:

Today patriotism is a topic of hot debates not only in moral philosophy but also in political theory. These debates have produced much high-quality writing, the best of which is here presented in this wide-ranging collection of essays by philosophers and political theorists.

Book News Annotation:

The theme of patriotism has received its due in the arts and social science research, but that was not the case in philosophy and political theory until the 1980s. So assert Primoratz (applied philosophy and public ethics, U. of Melbourne) and Pavkovic (politics, Macquarie U., Australia) in introducing 13 chapters by international scholars in these fields. Presenting philosophical positions treating patriotism as a case of universal morality or local/personal loyalties that may trump moral considerations, Primoratz distinguishes between nationalism and ethical patriotism, e.g., as in the case of the European Union. A U.S. philosopher argues for moderate versions of both patriotism and cosmopolitanism. Political theorists offer perspectives on patriotism figuring in debates between liberals and communitarians.
