THE INDIVIDUAL, THE STATE AND WORLD GOVERNMENT

The philosophical implications of the four major political issues of today: the concept of the state, the question of the right of the individual, the idea of democracy, and the issue of the limitation of the nation-state with a view to preventing war. A philosopher, the author discusses the ethics of individual political, family, economic, rights, the moral truths of democracy, nationalism versus internationalism, federation versus state sovereignty. In discussing peace and international order, Ewing probes the guilt of Germany, evaluates the merits of the United Nations, and proposes that individuals inject their private standards into international relations to insure a secure peace. Learned, idealistic dissertation.
