George Grant

" George Grant (1918-1988) is the most engaging and provocative writer to have dealt with Canadian politics in the last fifty years. His Lament for a Nation (1965) is an undisputed classic of our nations political literature. An instant best-seller on account of its practical political argument, it has endured as an interpretation of Canadian history and a justification for nationalism in this country. Along with Grants other books, it has also helped to clarify what is meant by the malaise of modernity said to characterize our time, and thus has served to introduce more than a generation of students to the basic questions of political philosophy. This study aims to guide the reader toward a clearer understanding of Grants thought. Focusing on his six short books and some of his most revealing articles and addresses, it serves as both an introduction to and an overview of George Grants career and his many contributions to the fields of political science, philosophy, religion, and Canadian studies. Hugh Donald Forbes relates Grants work to that of three disparate and controversial European thinkers Martin Heidegger, Leo Strauss, and Simone Weil exploring Grant outside of the strictly Canadian framework in which he is normally situated. This volume offers fresh perspective on the work of an important political philosopher. It will prove invaluable reading for students new to the subject as well as for those interested in a comprehensive study of an outstanding Canadian thinker. "

Collected Works of George Grant

George Grant (1918-88) has often been called Canada's greatest political philosopher and his work continues to influence the country's political, social, and cultural discourse and institutions. The fourth and final volume of the Collected Works of George Grant contains his writings from the last period of his life and includes unpublished material such as lectures, interviews, and excerpts from his notebooks. With comprehensive annotations for his articles, reviews, and the three books he published during this period - Time as History, English-Speaking Justice, and Technology and Justice - the volume also contains his writings on Nietzsche, Heidegger Simone Weil, and Céline that were central to this phase of his thought. Volume 4 reveals his engagement with technology and the nature of technological society that is as insightful today as during Grant's lifetime and is lasting proof of his legacy. Arthur Davis is Associate Professor in the School of Social Sciences, Atkinson Faculty of Liberal and Professional Studies, York University. During the 1950's, he studied undergraduate philosophy with George Grant.

Christian Moral Theology in the Emerging Technoculture

We are living in an emerging technoculture. Machines and gadgets not only weave the fabric of daily life, but more importantly embody philosophical and religious values which shape the contemporary moral vision-a vision that is often at odds with Christian convictions. This book critically examines those values, and offers a framework for how Christian moral theology should be formed and lived-out within the emerging technoculture. Brent Waters argues that technology represents the principal cultural background against which contemporary Christian moral life is formed. Addressing contemporary ethical and religious issues, this book will be of particular interest to students and scholars exploring the ideas of Heidegger, Nietzsche, Grant, Arendt, and Borgmann.

Northern Spirits

The recovery of Watson's thought is particularly valuable. Sibley shows that Watson, an internationally respected philosopher in the early twentieth century, discussed idealism and support for imperialism in ways that are particularly relevant in our new age of empire. A consideration of Grant's relationship to Hegel illuminates what led Grant to declare that Canada was "impossible" in the age of technology. Sibley's comparison of Grant and Trudeau is both unexpected and intriguing. So, too, is his analysis of the "illiberal strands" in Taylor's "politics of recognition."

Christian Higher Education in Canada

The Toronto 2018 Symposium on Christian Higher Education provided an opportunity for leaders in the Canadian Christian higher education movement to reflect deeply on its development, current reality, and future possibilities. The Canadian Christian higher education scene comprises a wide range of institutions, including Christian universities, Bible colleges, and seminaries and graduate schools. Each type has its own distinctive history and likewise represents both challenges and opportunities. Even though they are intertwined in their common purpose, these higher educational institutions express this purpose in various ways. This volume is a collection of the papers and plenary talks designed to share the content of the symposium with a wider audience. The papers are all written by active scholars and researchers who are connected to the member institutions of Christian Higher Education Canada (CHEC). They not only illustrate the quality of the scholarship at these institutions, but they make their own critical contribution to an ongoing discussion regarding the role and place of Christian higher education within the wider society. This volume is intended to be helpful to students, faculty, staff, board members, and supporters of Canadian and other Christian higher education institutions, as well as interested individuals and scholars.

From the Cave to the Cross

FROM THE CAVE TO THE CROSS: The cruciform theology of the George Grant and Simone Weil - is an academic work that enucleates the core tenets of Canadian political philosopher, George P. Grant, and his dependence on French philosopher-mystic, Simone Weil, in developing and articulating them. Grant's foundational theology (Platonic Christianity) includes his critique of modernity, his contemplative epistemology, his cosmology / anti-theodicy of the Cross and his cruciform public ethics. For each of these pillar beliefs, the author demonstrates Grant's overt affinities to Weil, cross-referencing his thought to hers and explicating the deep faith foundations of both of their politics, philosophy and ethics.

Prometheus Wired

In Prometheus Wired, Darin Barney debunks claims that a networked society will provide the infrastructure for a political revolution and shows that the resources we need for understanding and making sound judgments about this new technology are surprisingly close at hand. By looking to thinkers who grappled with the relationship of society and technology, such as Plato, Aristotle, Marx, and Heidegger, Barney critically examines such assertions about the character of digital networks.

Canada and the End of Empire

Sir John Seeley once wrote that the British Empire was acquired in "a fit of absence of mind." Whatever the truth of this comment, it is certainly arguable that the Empire was dismantled in such a fit. This collection deals with a neglected subject in post-Confederation Canadian history - the implications to Canada and Canadians of British decolonization and the end of empire. Canada and the End of Empire looks at Canadian diplomatic relations with the United Kingdom and the United States, the Suez crisis, the changing economic relationship with Great Britain in the 1950s and 1960s, the role of educational and cultural institutions in maintaining the British connection, the royal tour of 1959, the decision to adopt a new flag in 1964, the efforts to find a formula for repatriating the constitution, the Canadianization of the Royal Canadian Navy, and the attitude of First Nations to the changed nature of the Anglo-Canadian relationship. Historians in Commonwealth countries tend to view the end of British rule from a nationalist perspective. Canada and the End of Empire challenges this view and demonstrates the centrality of imperial history in Canadian historiography. An important addition to the growing canon of empire studies and imperial history, this book will be of interest to historians of the Commonwealth, and to scholars and students interested in the relationship between colonialism and nationalism.
