Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In a world where we continue to settle our differences with guns and bombs, many of us perceive any philosophy of nonviolence as passive, outdated, and intrinsically bound to religious beliefs. We laud one of the most famous proponents of nonviolent resistance, Martin Luther King, Jr., as an activist and orator, but seldom acknowledge him as an important intellectual. Greg Moses's powerful book at last identifies King as one of the greatest thinkers of our time — one whose philosophy has deep, unappreciated roots and lasting consequences. Identifying five fundamental concepts underlying King's philosophy — equality, structure, direct action, love, and justice — this book traces the parameters of his arguments for nonviolence.

Synopsis:

Martin Luther King, Jr., has been widely studied as a preacher, an activist, and an orator, but rarely as an intellectual. This groundbreaking book situates King as one of the most important social and political philosophers of our time, arguing that King's systematic logic of nonviolence is at the same time radically new and deeply rooted in African American intellectual history. Presenting a comprehensive genealogy of King's thought, Moses traces the influence of key African American thinkers and shows how King's concepts of equality, structure, direct action, love, and justice can be seen as strands of a coherent philosophical whole.
