Blattberg's is a genuinely original philosophical voice. The essays collected here discuss how to re-conceive the political spectrum, where qdeliberative deomocratsq go wrong, why human rights language is tragically counterproductive, how nationalism is not really secular, how many nations should share a single state, a new approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict, and why Canada might have something to teach about the qwar on terror.q We also learn about the right way to deny a role to principles in ethics, how to distinguish between the good and the beautiful, the way humor works, the rabbinic nature of modernism, the difference between good, bad, great, and evil, why Plato's dialogues are not really dialogues, and why most philosophers are actually artists.Essays in Practical Philosophy Charles Blattberg. a€“ a€œIntroduction.a€ In Liberalism, Nationalism, Citizenship: Essays on the Problem of Political Community.
