Editorial

The contributions to this issue of Theoria address, among other issues, the broad themes of trust, democracy and justice. In particular, they focus on the nature of, and the problems associated with the transition to, and consolidation of, liberal democracy in the contemporary global context. They address, too, some aspects of this context that bear upon the roles of, and challenges that confront, both the university as an institution and the endeavours of scholarship and research.

Editorial

The contributions to this edition of Theoria, while either charting new areas of intellectual and scholarly reflection or bringing new light to bear on established questions, are continuous with and further extend themes that have, over the past decade, shaped the journal as a coherent editorial project. Thus, the questions of democracy, justice, political identity and the nature of the modern state, as well as that of the contemporary global economy, run through the pages of this issue as so many Ariadne’s threads, connecting it with previous issues. Bruce Mazlish, in his article Psychohistory and the Question of Global Identity in Theoria 93 posed the question of whether a new global sense of identity and belonging was beginning to emerge. This edition of Theoria offers a collection of essays that, in one way or another, explore that question further.

Editorial

This issue of Theoria addresses its organising theme, science and civilisation, in a broad and multifaceted way. The contributions range in scope from explorations of the relationship between the scientific and humanist worldviews, through identity formation in the context of ‘advanced’ technological societies, to questions of epistemology, culture, power and the institutional determinants of economic growth and prosperity.

Editorial

This edition revisits a number of themes that have characterised Theoria as an editorial project over the past decade and points to issues that will doubtless come to shape the journal as an editorial and intellectual project in future years.

Editorial

This edition of Theoria brings contributions that engage, provocatively, with an unusually wide range of issues. They include reflections on Wittgenstein’s Lecture on Ethics, an exploration of the concept of trust in Locke’s thought, an account of Ellen Meiksins Wood’s pioneering contribution to the recasting of political thought, and an essay concerned to revisit and re-assert the importance of Noam Chomsky’s thought with respect to the articulation of a principled socialist politics. They include, too, reflections on J.M. Coetzee’s Life and Times of Michael K and Chinua Achebe’s Anthills of the Savannah, a critical examination of aspects of Nancy Cartwright’s seminal contributions to the philosophy of science, and conclude with a critique of the case made for ‘illiberal democracy’ in the context of economic modernisation.
