Summary
"The analytic movement has long been the dominant philosophical tradition in English-speaking countries. In Analytical Political Philosophy: From Discourse, Edification, Canadian philosopher David Braybrooke explores this movement by bringing together some of his earlier free-standing studies of the concepts of needs, rights, and rules. He combines the results with an analytical account of how to deal with consequences and thus, arrives at a program for public policy, comparable in generality at least and in trenchancy to the programs offered by Rawls, Nozick, and Gauthier."--Jacket

Part One: Free-standing studies of political terms. Section A: Needs. The concept of needs, with a heart-warming offer of aid to utilitarianism -- where does the moral force of needs reside, and when? Section B: Rights. The analysis of rights -- Our natural bodies, our social rights. Section C: Rules. The representation of rules in logic and their definition. Part Two: Aggregating the free-standing studies. (The Keystone chapter) Aggregating in a distinctive grand program the free-standing studies and an account of the serial evaluation of consequences. Part Three: Analytical political philosophy deals with evil. Through the free-standing studies and their aggregation in a grand program, analytical political philosophy can deal with evil. Part Four: Three famous grand programs in analytical political philosophy, with comparisons. Utilitarianism with a difference: Rawls's position in ethics -- Sidgwick's critique of Nozick -- Social contract theory's fanciest flight (with Gauthier) -- Comparisons of the other grand programs, esecially Rawls's, with the needs-focused combination program. Part Five: An epilogue to the book and to the four-book series that it brings to an end: two older grand programs
