Confirmado: Chandran Kukathas na LSE

Um dos mais destacados filósofos políticos de inspiração hayekiana da actualidade vai ocupar uma cátedra de Teoria Política na LSE. Sem dúvida uma das melhores notícias dos últimos anos para o liberalismo clássico (e, já agora, para a LSE): Distinguished political theorist Professor Chandran Kukathas appointed at the LSE

The Government Department is delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Chandran Kukathas to a Chair in Political Theory with effect from the academic year 2007-8. Professor Kukathas will move to the LSE from the University of Utah, where he is currently the Neal A. Maxwell Professor of Political Theory, Public Policy and Public Service. A graduate of the Australian National University, the University of New South Wales and the University of Oxford, he previously held faculty and research positions at each of these institutions as well as at the Australian Defence Force Academy and George Mason University. Professor Kukathas is a key protagonist in contemporary theoretical debates about liberalism, multiculturalism and diversity and has authored numerous scholarly articles and several books in these areas. Influential contributions include his books The Liberal Archipelago: A Theory of Diversity and Freedom (Oxford, 2003), Rawls: A Theory of Justice and Its Critics (with Philip Pettit, Polity and Stanford, 1990) and Hayek and Modern Liberalism (Oxford, 1989) and his articles on the concepts of cultural rights, multiculturalism and diversity. Professor Kukathas his visited and lectured at many academic institutions across the world and in 2003 was awarded the Centenary Medal for services to Australian society through the study of social and political theory. His arrival at the LSE will further reinforce the Government Department’s strengths in political theory.
