John Dewey's Criticisms of Traditional Philosophy - Dewey's Criticisms of Traditional Philosophy ABSTRACT: In this paper I address some of John Dewey’s more generally applicable criticisms of the philosophic "tradition," and show how his criticisms stem from his naturalistic approach to philosophy. This topic is important because Dewey gives great insight into discussions that are relevant today regarding the role of philosophy.

The interest groups may have different ideals but in the end they all have the same function, which is to promote their selfish ideas of the truth. The Progressive interest group (PIG) advocates for peace, social and economic justice, civil rights, civil liberties, human rights, and the environment....   [tags: American History, Interest Groups] 1929 words

Analysis of Argentinean Debt Crisis: IMF and Government Actions - The Argentina debt affected the country between the late 90’s to the early 2000’s and can be attributed to misdiagnosis and ineffective policy. During this time the IMF and Argetina’s government worked closely together. Previous to the crisis Argentina had been celebrated for its economic policies and growth. The government worked to put in place conservative economic policy, including the privatization of companies, looser trade regulations, among other conservative changes. Economic growth in that period appears to have been in large part the result of increasing amount of international debt....   [tags: Economics]

The evidence for hyperglobalization is found all over the world, but for the purposes of this paper, I will focus on the expansion of NAFTA, the 2004 Indian Elections, and the increasing global outsourcing of labor. I will then outline the implications of hyperglobalist globalization on world regions and the regional approach....   [tags: Globalization ]

Prescriptive Packages Do Not Help Developing Nations - A common form of development aid to the Global South has been distributed as “the prescriptive package”. Whether presented as a Structural Adjustment Program (SAP) and the reform of the state, TVA dams and the harnessing of nature, or the Green Revolution and the push towards agricultural modernity—the prescriptive package is a “cookie-cutter” model of development prescribed to the developing world regardless of local context and often with disastrous results. Without modification for local circumstance and incorporation of input of local people as well as their cooperation, good-hearted development efforts will continue to be, in many cases, either futile or degenerative....   [tags: Developing Nations] 2272 words

Fallout from the economic collapse was so severe the Argentinean population resorted to civil unrest and protest, which in turn exacerbated Argentina’s problems at the turn of the century. While other issues related to this financial crisis such as the impact on the lives of the Argentinean population or the political turmoil and corruption are certainly worthy of discussion, this paper will focus on the currency crisis and the Ar...   [tags: Economy, Currency Crisis] 1858 words

When it comes to the welfare state, I don’t think that the key to a successful reform necessarily lies in the cutting back of government spending, but rather a redistribution of the budget....   [tags: Social Work]
