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final volume of the Collected Works of George Grant contains his writings from the last period of his life and includes unpublished material such as lectures, interviews, and excerpts from his notebooks.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.

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.

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.

Dictionary Of Modern American Philosophers

The Dictionary of Modern American Philosophers includes both academic and non-academic philosophers, and a large number of female and minority thinkers whose work has been neglected. It includes those intellectuals involved in the development of psychology, pedagogy, sociology, anthropology, education, theology, political science, and several other fields, before these disciplines came to be considered distinct from philosophy in the late nineteenth century. Each entry contains a short biography of the writer, an exposition and analysis of his or her doctrines and ideas, a bibliography of writings, and suggestions for further reading. While all the major post-Civil War philosophers are present, the most valuable feature of this dictionary is its coverage of a huge range of less well-known writers, including hundreds of presently obscure thinkers. In many cases, the Dictionary of Modern American Philosophers offers the first scholarly treatment of the life and work of certain writers. This book will be an indispensable reference work for scholars working on almost any aspect of modern American thought.

A Border Within

Border Within addresses the question of English Canadian identity by exploring how unity is possible in the presence of a plurality of discourses. Ian Angus examines the relationship between globalizing social movements and the particularities of identity politics by extending the theories of Harold Innis and George Grant. Grant and Innis, argues Angus, provide a critique of homogenization that is the key to meeting the challenges of developing a new relationship with the natural world and of forging a new multicultural society. Angus breaks down the superficial oppositions that have been the traditional touchstones of discussions of Canadian identity - the Garison and the Wilderness, colony and empire, Canada and the U.S., the Self and the Other - in favour a view that does justice to the complex intertwining of identity and difference. In doing so he not only opens the way to a new understanding of the politics of identity in English Canada and the creation of a theory of Canadian social identity as postcolonial, particularistic, and pluralist, he also makes an elegant and passionate plea for reintegrating philosophy into public discourse.
