[42] Niebuhr, Moral Man and Immoral Society, 95. The Utility of Interpretations Section Seven by Noam Chomsky

Karl Paul Reinhold Niebuhr was an American theologian, ethicist, public intellectual, commentator on politics and public affairs, and professor at Union Theological Seminary for more than 30 years.. Widely considered one of the greatest, if not the greatest, American theologian of the 20th century, his influence on the political philosophy, the role of religion in politics and philosophy, and American policy is gargantuan.

http://www.amazon.com/Moral-Man-Immoral-Society-Theological/dp/0664224741

Moral Man and Immoral Society is Reinhold Niebuhr’s important early study in ethics and politics. Forthright and realistic, it discusses the inevitability of social conflict, the brutal behavior of human collectives of every sort, the inability of rationalists and social scientists to even imagine the realities of collective power, and, ultimately, how individual morality can overcome social immorality.

The Library of Theological Ethics series focuses on what it means to think theologically and ethically. It presents a selection of important and otherwise unavailable texts in easily accessible form. Volumes in this series will enable sustained dialogue with predecessors though reflection on classic works in the field.

[67] Quoted by Hill, The World Turned Upside Down, 72. The Utility of Interpretations Section Ten by Noam Chomsky

http://www.amazon.com/The-World-Turned-Upside-Down/dp/0140137327

Within the English revolution of the mid-seventeenth century which resulted in the triumph of the protestant ethic — the ideology of the propertied class — there threatened another, quite different, revolution. Its success ‘might have established communal property, a far wider democracy in political and legal institutions, might have disestablished the state church and rejected the protestant ethic. In “The World Turned Upside Down” Christopher Hill studies the beliefs of such radical groups as the Diggers, the Ranters, the Levellers and others, and the social and emotional impulses that gave rise to them. The relations between rich and poor classes, the part played by wandering 'masterless’ men, the outbursts of sexual freedom, the great imaginative creations of Milton and Bunyan — these and many other elements build up into a marvellously detailed and coherent portrait of this strange, sudden effusion of revolutionary beliefs.

[65] Jo Ann Boydston, ed., John Dewey: The Later Works, vol. II, from Common Sense, Nov. 1935. The Utility of Interpretations Section Ten by Noam Chomsky

http://www.amazon.com/Later-Works-John-Dewey-Volume/dp/0809328127

With the exception of Experience and Nature, (Volume 1 of the Later Works), this volume contains all of Dewey’s writ­ings for 1925 and 1926, as well as his 1927 book, The Public and Its Problems. A Modern Language Association’s Com­mittee on Scholarly Editions textual edi­tion.

The first essay in this volume, “The Development of American Pragmatism,” is perhaps Dewey’s best-known article of these years, emphasizing the uniquely American origins of his own philosophi­cal innovations. Other essays focus on Dewey’s continuing investigation of the “nature of intelligent conduct,” as, for example, his debate with David Wight Prall on the underpinnings of value, his study of sense-perception, and his support for outlawing of war. Also appearing here are Dewey’s final articles on the culture of the developing world, written for the New Republic after his travels to China, Turkey, and Mexico.
