On Loyalty and Loyalties : The Contours of a Problematic Virtue Paperback / softback
Deep friendship may express profound loyalty, but so too may virulent nationalism.
What can and should we say about this Janus-faced virtue of the will?
This volume explores at length the contours of an important and troubling virtue - its cognates, contrasts, and perversions; its strengths and weaknesses; its awkward relations with universal morality; its oppositional form and limits; as well as the ways in which it functions in various associative connections,such as friendship and familial relations, organizations and professions, nations, countries, and religious tradition.
