Shifts in cultural, social and political ideas offer new ways of seeing the world, instead of placing everything along a spectrum from Left to Right. David McKnight proposes not an elaborate philosophy to explain the past and unlock the future but a new vision based on human values of freedom, compassion and the common good, a vision which he calls the new humanism .Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Economic and Corporatist Contexts for the Third Way -- 8. Conclusion: Theories of Possibilities.Summary: This book examines the transformation of contemporary social democracy through the concept of 'third way' reforms. It proposes a set of theories about the possibility for continuing social democratic ideological adaptation, for ideologies to overcome institutional constraints in triggering path-breaking innovations, and for social democracy to bridge the insider-outsider divide. Empirically, the book utilizes these theories to account for social democratic welfare state and labour market reforms in nine OECD countries after the end of the Golden Age. Based on the logic of 'public evils', the book proposes that the ideologically contested nature of institutions provides incentives for institutional innovation. Social democratic ideology shapes the fundamental characteristics and content of the third way policy paradigm, and the paradigm's practical implementation continues to be path-dependent on historical institutional settings.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Why the Third Way failed : economics, morality and the orgins of the 'Big Society' /

by Jordan, Bill.

Publisher: Bristol, U.K. Policy Press 2010Description: iv, 228 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: In the wake of the economic crash, public policy is in search of a new moral compass. This book explains why the Third Way's combination of market-friendly and abstract, value-led principles has failed, and shows what is needed for an adequate replacement as a political and moral project. It criticises the economic analysis on which the Third Way approach to policy was founded and suggests an alternative to its legalistic and managerial basis for the regulation of social relations.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
