  • Introduction: The Civic Reconstruction of Higher Education and the Future
           of the Good Society

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When I first took over editorship of The Good Society in 2016, I was excited to maintain the journal's reputation as a forum for sophisticated political theory while also expanding its focus to include the major preoccupations of my own career. One of those preoccupations was with my professional location in the field of education, and higher education particularly, during a time of political, social, and cultural crisis. Another was my long-term interest in the complex history, contested consequences, and democratic resources of American social thought. The third and most recent of my guiding preoccupations was a still-emerging field of political theory and practice that put everyday citizens' capacities and ... Read More

  • Evolution, Complexity, and the Civic Reconstruction of Higher Education

      Abstract: The bifurcation of professional and civic life is a long-standing problem in higher education. The problem can be parsed into the following questions.What do the academic disciplines have to offer for the improvement of civic life'How can the fundamental concerns of civic life be used to inform research, scholarship, and teaching at universities'How can universities become engaged with their surrounding communities (and other locations) to maximize the two-way benefits of working together'Unless the first question can be addressed, then the other two questions are moot. Yet, the academic disciplines suffer from a profound lack of integration when it comes offering solutions to the problems of civic life. Nearly ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In his influential book, A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey toward an Undivided Life, Parker Palmer argues that the majority of people are living lives disconnected from their deep convictions, identities, and desires for "doing good" in the world. Palmer suggests that it is not a failure of ethics but rather "a failure of human wholeness."1 Palmer's work is well aligned with the core theme of the Civic Reconstruction of Higher Education Conference (November 13, 2018, Minneapolis), which was convened on the idea that many of our university students, faculty, staff, and administrators are living divided lives. Conference facilitators offered several underlying questions to interrogate this disconnection and the role ... Read More

  • Experiential Education as a Promising Tool for Civic Identity and Agency
           Development

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Experiential education, when used intentionally and in its full expression, can be an effective strategy in higher education to help students and faculty to bridge the divide between professional and civic roles. John Dewey professed that students must interact with their environment in order to adapt and learn. Experiential education can guide students through exploration of vocation and civic identity through work and reflection designed for this purpose. Without explicit connections, students see their education and future career as separate from civic participation, which results in split professional and civic identities.Experiential education instills self-efficacy, reflection on vocation, and development of ...

      Abstract: My position as a graduate student was oddly reflective of my internal divisions. Going to graduate school is, obviously, rarely an option for young working-class women. Graduate students are notoriously "poor," yet I still make more per hour than my mother ever has.Higher education attainment has a powerful ability to increase the social and economic mobility of individuals and contribute to the human capital development of communities and nations (Baum, Ma, and Payea 2013). Research indicates that individuals with advanced degrees have higher income earning potential, exhibit higher levels of civic engagement, are healthier, and have higher potential for socioeconomic mobility (Baum, Ma, and Payea 2013).

  • Maintenance: The Civics of Engineering and the Engineering of Civics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Everything is connected to everything else. This is the mantra of systems thinking. If one part of the system fails, the rest is affected. This might sound basic and intuitive, but applying this principle in practice—understanding dependencies, making rigorous trade-offs, integrating resources, and creating usefulness under constraints—is the forte of systems engineering. None of us are born or naturally endowed with a holistic view of the world. It takes time, experience, and practice to cultivate that perspective. Almost all cultures and traditions seem to have embraced some form of a civic "systems" philosophy. In our society, however, our education and careers too often channel our energies into narrow—and ... Read More

  • Undergraduate Engineering as Civic Professionalism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: STEM majors have seen surging interest from college students in recent years.1 Thanks to the lure of high salaries and the prestige of working at companies such as Google, computer science has become the top major at many elite institutions. Meanwhile, the humanities appear to be in perpetual "crisis," with long-term declines in their popularity as majors and perhaps even as electives.2 This bodes poorly for democracy and society.The liberal arts are the traditional training grounds for democratic participation, cultivating the skills necessary for what Danielle Allen calls "participatory readiness."3 In an alarming 2014 study of engineering programs at several schools (including Olin College, where we teach), Erin ...

      Abstract: In the United States and other countries, we face an old problem that deserves new and better attention: our tendency to embrace and combine binaries and reductions. This tendency shows up in many ways and places. In this essay, I focus on higher education—more specifically, on the work of academic professionals. By "academic professionals" I mean people with credentialed expertise who are employed by colleges and universities to engage in the work of teaching, research, and/or administration. By using the terms "we" and "our" in what follows, I am purposely locating myself among them. As a member of this profession, I carry responsibilities. I am implicated in its problems, and I am called to join with others in ... Read More

  • Standing Up for the "We"

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Reflecting on this issue's theme of reinvigorating the civic purposes of higher education, the first thing I considered was that we are in difficult times related to civic participation. The ability to advocate for the ideas and practices that I and many Americans believe make our nation great is in danger. Conflict seems ever present, and many of us feel our rights as citizens of this nation and the world are being challenged, almost daily, under the guise of patriotism defined narrowly by some powerful individuals. Perhaps it is the time to think about how identifying previous difficult times may help us understand this one. Or as sociologists like to say (and some take to heart): history is important.Being a ... Read More

      Abstract: On February 15 and 16, 2018, Lynn Taliento, an organizational consultant who helped President Obama design his foundation, met with a group of college presidents convened by the Kettering Foundation at Denison University, hosted by Adam Weinberg, Denison's president. She described the foundation's formation.In the months before Obama left office, she and the president met each week. She suggested issue after issue for the foundation's focus—racism, climate change, human rights, girls' empowerment, inequality, and others. Each time he crossed it off, saying unless America repairs relationships that allow us to work together across differences, we won't be successful in addressing any of them. Her presentation ...

      Abstract: Daniel O'Connell and Scott Peters have produced a book as extraordinary in style as in substance. They present detailed accounts of eight scholar-activists and organizers who have struggled to understand and expose the diverse impacts of agribusiness on California communities. But O'Connell and Peters do this by giving voice to their eight narrators—and the result reveals a power of voice that is at once striking and moving, accessible and generous, displaying a continuing commitment and conviction that is at once instructive and inspiring. The "damning indictment of the greed and corruption that flourish under California's system of industrial agriculture" (3) that follows grows not from any summary arguments of ... Read More

           Toward Pragmatic Confucian Democracy (2018)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The era of self-absorbed Western liberal democratic triumphalism is long gone—good riddance—even if the ghosts of that post–Cold War period still seem to haunt debates about democratic theory and practice. Clear and fresh thinking about democracy's value(s) is needed, especially in contexts where it is difficult to disentangle democracy and colonialism. To risk stating the obvious: the reemergence of authoritarianism across the globe only heightens the need for creative democratic theorizing.Sungmoon Kim's Democracy After Virtue is a book for this moment. Kim makes an important contribution to the kind of problem-oriented and place-based theorizing that The Good Society has long been partial to. Developing his ... Read More

  • Democracy After Virtue and the Circumstances of Modern Politics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Sungmoon Kim's justification of pragmatic Confucian democracy hinges on its effective response to what he describes as the circumstances of modern politics in East Asia. These circumstances are, notably, the loss of monarchy, the associated impossibility of any appeal to the mandate of heaven, and growing pluralism and so reasonable moral disagreement. The kind of liberal modernity and representative democracy already imported into several Confucian societies require accommodation. Kim is to be applauded for taking contemporary political reality seriously; political theorists still do this too rarely, and can sometimes stumble when they try.Pragmatic Confucian democracy, as its name suggests, synthesizes ...

           After Virtue: Toward Pragmatic Confucian Democracy

      Abstract: Sungmoon Kim's Democracy After Virtue is an impressive contribution to comparative political thought and the burgeoning literature on the relationship between East Asian Confucian traditions and liberal democracy. My aim here is to clarify and assess the overall shape of the book's main argument in part I. In concluding, I turn more briefly to Kim's account (in part II of his book) of how Confucian values such as filial piety may lend a distinctive shape to law, especially criminal law, in East Asia.Part I of Democracy After Virtue focuses on democratic theory, and consists of extended critical commentary on the work of other political theorists. This includes scholars whose work is influenced by Confucianism ... Read More

  • Fragmented Pragmatism: On Sungmoon Kim's Pragmatic Confucian Democracy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Moving beyond the debate between Confucian democrats and Confucian meritocrats, Sungmoon Kim's new book tries to make a normative case for what he refers to as "pragmatic Confucian democracy," which establishes a mutually strengthening relationship between Confucianism and democracy in the context of East Asia. At its core, Kim's overall argument is a simple yet significant one: it requires a paradigm shift to better understand the relationship between Confucianism and democracy in East Asia. In Kim's view, neither Confucian democrats nor Confucian meritocrats really get democracy, which is manifested mostly clearly in their failure to justify the need to incorporate democratic components in their respective ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: What a rich and complex book has brought together these commentators. Sungmoon Kim's Democracy After Virtue is grounded in contemporary politics and yet challenges us to imagine democratic possibilities for East Asian societies with long Confucian histories, contemporary Confucian practices, and heterogeneous commitments to Confucian virtues.For any of us, imagining the meaning and potential meaning of "Confucian democracy" is easier if we recognize that we have never seen an actual "liberal democracy" either. If you are willing to see democratically endorsed oppression of freedom and obstacles to equal participation of a majority or a minority within a country and still call the government that authorizes these a ...

  • The Prospect of Pragmatic Confucian Democracy: Reply to Dryzek, Macedo,
           Ackerly, and Li

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Before responding to Professors Dryzek, Macedo, Ackerly, and Li, I begin by reminding the readers of this symposium of the central aim of Democracy After Virtue. After the publication of my first book, Confucian Democracy in East Asia: Theory and Practice, I received two sets of comments from my critics. On the one hand, my Confucian critics wondered how "Confucian" my idea of Confucian democracy is, given my general embrace of liberal rights and democratic institutions. My second book, Public Reason Confucianism: Democratic Perfectionism and Constitutionalism in East Asia, was motivated to offer a rejoinder to this pressing question by articulating my normative vision of democratic Confucianism, a Confucianism ...
