Contents Introduction: political friendship and justice among unequals -- Addams's friendship practices -- Economic foundations of pragmatist political friendship -- Economic foundations of war and peace -- Possibilities for transnational political friendship -- Conclusion: a feminist pragmatist approach to political friendship
Summary In this book, Wynne Walker Moskop addresses the practical and theoretical problem of how unequal political friendships evolve toward arrangements the parties consider reciprocal and just, a problem neglected by scholars of democracy who associate reciprocity and justice only with equal parties. Jane Addams insisted that Hull House was not a charity with philanthropic aspirations; rather it had to bring "two classes "to a shared purpose and more egalitarian relation. The problem was, and still is, how? Drawing on several bodies of scholarship--including Addams's writings, secondary works about her collaborations, literature on Aristotelian political friendship, and feminist scholarship on the global migration of care workers--Moskop shows the importance of Addams's practices to the continuing relevance of unequal economic relations for shaping political friendship. Contributing to a lively conversation about Addams's work as a pragmatist thinker and social reformer that began three decades ago, Jane Addams on Inequality and Political Friendship is an invaluable resource to students of democratic theory, feminist political theory and philosophy, and American pragmatism. It illuminates the importance of overlooked conditions for friendship and justice in unequal relations, given people's ongoing subordination because of race, class, gender, and citizenship status in the U.S. and transnationally
