The Routledge Handbook of the Philosophy of Paternalism

Routledge | English | 2018 | ISBN-10: 1138956104 | 368 pages | PDF | 2.48 mb

by Kalle Grill (Editor), Jason Hanna (Editor)
While paternalism has been a long-standing philosophical issue, it has recently received renewed attention among scholars and the general public. The Routledge Handbook of the Philosophy of Paternalism is an outstanding reference source to the key topics, problems and debates in this exciting subject and is the first collection of its kind. Comprising twenty-seven chapters by a team of international contributors the handbook is divided into five parts:
• What is Paternalism?
• Paternalism and Ethical Theory
• Paternalism and Political Philosophy
• Paternalism without Coercion
• Paternalism in Practice
Within these sections central debates, issues and questions are examined, including: how should paternalism be defined or characterized? How is paternalism related to such moral notions as rights, well-being, and autonomy? When is paternalism morally objectionable? What are the legitimate limits of government benevolence? To what extent should medical practice be paternalistic?
The Routledge Handbook of the Philosophy of Paternalism is essential reading for students and researchers in applied ethics and political philosophy. The handbook will also be very useful for those in related fields, such as law, medicine, sociology and political science.
Review
‘This volume is a comprehensive treatment of all aspects of paternalism. The contributions are of high quality and topics are covered which are often neglected, e.g. nudging, manipulation, epistemic paternalism.’
Gerald Dworkin, University of California, Davis, USA

Beyond the Champion: Institutionalizing Innovation Through People

Stanford Business | English | 2018 | ISBN-10: 0804798273 | 320 pages | PDF | 3.14 mb

Large, mature companies often struggle when it comes to the uncertain process of breakthrough innovation. But innovation is an imperative in today’s cutthroat business environment. To fulfill its potential, there has to be a better way―and there is.
Beyond the Champion argues that innovation is a talent all its own that requires distinct skills and expertise, just like finance or marketing. Viewing innovation as a discipline in its own right, it is easy to see that breakthrough wins require an organizational design with clearly delineated roles, responsibilities, and career tracks for those who shoulder the responsibility for new products. Drawing on the results of a four-year study and two decades of related research, this book outlines three fundamental competencies necessary for innovation: discovery, incubation, and acceleration. Mapping these skills onto roles and opportunities for advancement, the authors deliver a pioneering blueprint for sustainable innovation.

Kuratko, The Gill Distinguished Chair of Entrepreneurship Indiana University)

This book has great ideas for how to master that challenge.” (Patricie Merkert, Vice President, Innovation & Corporate Strategy and Product Champion New Business MANN+HUMMEL GmbH)
“This book is the capstone of 20+ years of longitudinal research that has revealed the issues with corporate innovation on numerous levels. This book pinpoints the underlying issues on a macro level but then brings them to life with specific stories of the people in these roles, concluding with practical models to guide future practitioners. It’s spot on.” (Rich Duncombe University of Oregon)

Whiteness, Pedagogy, and Youth in America: Critical Whiteness Studies in the Classroom

Routledge | English | 2018 | ISBN-10: 1138571946 | 160 pages | PDF | 1.10 mb

by Samuel Jaye Tanner (Author)
This book employs a narrative approach to recount and interpret the story of an innovative teaching and learning project about whiteness. By offering a first-hand description of a nationally-recognized, high school-based Youth Participatory Action Research project―The Whiteness Project―this book draws out the conflicts and complexities at the core of white students’ racial identities. Critical of the essentializing frameworks traditionally given to address white privilege, this volume advances a distinctive and theoretically robust account of ‘second-wave critical whiteness pedagogy’.
Review
“The pulsing heart of this book is Samuel Jaye Tanner’s storytelling and commentary about a remarkable, year-long project in which white high school students investigated and dramatized how whiteness deformed their own community. Along the way, Tanner criticizes anti-racist pedagogies grounded in a white privilege framework and theorizes white racial identities with sophistication and power. Many different things are needed for the fight against racism in this time of Trump―Tanner’s book is one of them.”
– Timothy J. Lensmire, Professor, University of Minnesota, USA
