How well-versed are you in political philosophy? Book recommendations from a legendary professor

Blog

Maben Walter Poirier was one of my political philosophy professors during my undergraduate studies.

For background, he studied under Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor at McGill University and wrote a fascinating PhD thesis entitled: “Three Approaches to Knowing – Philosophical Empiricism, Relativism, and Personal Knowledge – and their implications for the development of a science of politics.”

Circa 2012, he sent my classmates and I a document containing book recommendations. Since so few actually know how to distinguish philosophy from ideology (mainly because they don’t read serious works), I figured it’d be a good idea to share this bibliography with everyone. It might even help some of you with your research.

Without further ado, here’s the document:


— Bibliography —

 

­­­­­­

NOTE:  I am regularly asked by students to recommend articles and books that I have found of interest and of continuing value.  The following is a short list of things that have come to mind over the past few months.  Undoubtedly, it is a list that will grow with time as I recollect other things that I have read and that have influenced and sometimes even troubled me.  For the moment, accept this list as is, and return to this site whenever you have occasion, since this is a list that will see a number of additions made to it.  It goes without saying that I assume everyone reads The Bible and the classics.

 

As you will see, my interests do not limit themselves to political matters and issues of political philosophy.  My tastes are wide ranging and catholic, in the sense of universal.  But you must not assume that I agree with all of the theses and views associated with the many authors and texts listed below.  That would be a serious error.  In fact, were I to agree with all or most, I would be in contradiction with myself.  However, I do agree with aspects of many of them.

This is a work that is absolutely essential reading for all who are setting out to acquire a university education, and not just a university training.  If what you want is a university training, you need not read this book, for usually that is what most of you will get without any effort on your part.  Remember here that education relates to and brings about the transformation of one’s self, whereas training has to do with the acquisition of a skill, which can either be sold, or the products of which can be sold, but which has nothing to do with the transformation of one’s self.

Although not representative of the philosophy of science in the 20th Century, Polanyi’s great work on how scientists reason when engaged in scientific research gets it right.  This is essential reading for those who want to know what it means to think scientifically and not scientistically.

Notes

[1] My focus on Voegelin in this bibliography is a consequence of my belief that an attentive and understanding reading of all of what Voegelin has written, plus a similar reading of the various pieces he refers to in his many footnotes, accompanied by an opportunity to discuss these matters with a knowledgeable person, is capable of providing one with an education that will rival and then some the one that one might obtain at one of the better universities.
