Abstract

Dieses Open-Access-Buch präsentiert ein praxistheoretisches Konzept, das die Analyse verschiedener Aspekte und Formen kollektiven Handelns ermöglicht. Im Zentrum steht die Erweiterung des Handlungsverständnisses bei Anthony Giddens für Kollektive. Dabei werden Ansätze der Klassiker, der Organisations- und Bewegungsforschung sowie der jüngeren Debatten in Sozialtheorie und Philosophie integriert und miteinander verbunden. Heute wird eine neue Vielfalt an Formen kollektiven Handelns thematisiert, traditionelle Formen werden dagegen in Frage gestellt. Die vorgeschlagene Grundidee lautet: Lösen wir uns vom bisherigen Fokus auf stabile Kollektivakteure, gerät die fragile Praxis kollektiven Handelns in den Blick. Praxistheorien erhalten derzeit große Aufmerksamkeit. Sie haben zur Handlungsfähigkeit von Kollektiven bislang jedoch wenig zu sagen. Das Buch füllt diese Leerstelle und hat dabei stets die Anwendbarkeit für empirische Analysen im Blick.​

Abstract

This open access book provides both a broad perspective and a focused examination of cow care as a subject of widespread ethical concern in India, and increasingly in other parts of the world. In the face of what has persisted as a highly charged political issue over cow protection in India, intellectual space must be made to bring the wealth of Indian traditional ethical discourse to bear on the realities of current human-animal relationships, particularly those of humans with cows. Dharma, yoga, and bhakti paradigms serve as starting points for bringing Hindu—particularly Vaishnava Hindu—animal ethics into conversation with contemporary Western animal ethics. The author argues that a culture of bhakti—the inclusive, empathetic practice of spirituality centered in Krishna as the beloved cowherd of Vraja—can complement recently developed ethics-of-care thinking to create a solid basis for sustaining all kinds of cow care communities. ; Offers a focused insight into a key aspect of Hindu religious practice Integrates primary research and tertiary sources to give a multifaceted understanding of the intricacies of cow care practice Challenges conventional Western thought on cow care and its worldwide implications for animal ethics

Abstract

In the light of growing political and religious fundamentalism, this open access book defends the idea of freedom as paramount for the attempt to find common ethical ground in the age of globality. The book sets out to examine as yet unexhausted ways to boost the resilience of the principle of liberalism. Critically reviewing the last 200 years of the philosophy of freedom, it revises the principle of liberty in order to revive it. It discusses many different aspects that fall under its three main topics: the metaphysics of freedom, quantitative freedom and qualitative freedom. Open societies worldwide have come under increasing pressure in the last decades. The belief that politics and markets fare best when guided by the principle of liberty presently faces multiple challenges such as terrorism, climate warming, inequality, populism, and financial crises. In the view of its critics, the idea of freedom no longer offers adequate guidance to meet these challenges and should be partially corrected or even entirely replaced by countervailing values. Against the reduction of freedom to the merely quantitative question as to how much liberties individuals call their own, this book draws attention to the qualitative concerns which and whose opportunities society should foster. It argues that, correctly understood, the idea of liberty commits us to defend as well as advance the freedom of each and every world citizen.
