  • The aim of this book is to examine the public and private roles of the citizen as a moral agent. We define the moral agent as a person who, rather than merely behaving in a manner consistent with morality, recognizes morality as a motive for action. The moral agent not only follows moral principles but also acknowledges morality as his or her principal. In developing the notion of the moral agent, we accord a special significance to public administration.

  • Generally, technicism is a reliance or confidence in technology as a benefactor of society. Taken to extreme, technicism is the belief that humanity will ultimately be able to control the entirety of existence using technology. In other words, human beings will someday be able to master all problems and possibly even control the future using technology. Some, such as Stephen V. Monsma,[43] connect these ideas to the abdication of religion as a higher moral authority.

  • Justice is no mere abstraction. Finding justice and doing justice is a continuous human task. It is the activity which in any society gives politics and the law their purpose. The activity has both a material and a discursive dimension. It has to do with what we are, what we do and what we say. What we are and do is materially real. How we relate to others is discursively real, a matter of communicated explanations via words. The struggle for justice is about how we explain the basis of a good and proper relationship between ourselves and others.

  • We are confronted with the problems of globalisation daily. Globalisation has become a common phenomenon, yet one that many people experience as a threat not only to their economic existence, but also to their cultural and moral self-image. Some join protest organisations like ATTAC and others. Their protests regularly lead to violence at international summits. Moreover, the current situation after September 11th can be seen as an indirect consequence of problems associated with globalisation.

  • Call Centres Call centres are the place where technology advances seem to be taken up with the most gusto and where the saying ‘time is money’ is so true.

  • The organizational structure for project management is often chosen to mitigate risk in a weak capacity environment, but it may also reflect internal incentives that focus on speed of project processing and disbursement, and perceived stigmas in low implementation performance ratings. The result is often the use of PIUs—sometimes semi-permanently—even though regional studies have shown that they are suboptimal organizational arrangements and create problems of morale among government officials.

  • A major difference between this concept and Kornai’s notion of soft budget constraints lies in the ex-ante attitude of creditors. While creditors (in particular, the state) explicitly bail out unprofitable firms (this information is available ex-ante), the adverse selection in the second case is due to imperfect information: if the relevant information had been available to the creditors ex-ante, they would have declined to finance the project altogether (Schaffer (1998)).

  • "Christian" is capable of use in two senses, individual and political. We apply the words "Hindoo" and "Mahommedan" in these two senses also. A man who has been born and brought up in the environment of the Hindoo or Mahommedan religions, and who has not avowed some other form of faith, but has yielded at least an outward allegiance to these forms, we declare to be a man of one or the other faith. Moreover, we judge of his religion by the fruits of it in his moral character. Just so, every European or American who has not openly disavowed the Christian religion for some...
