Structure of Power - Absract: The debate is whether one society can truly have one structure of power that lasts over time and this essay will agree with the pluralists, that power is ever-changing and elite domination can at best only be fleeting and temporary. However, this essay will also argue that this is not just down to the issue of power, but elite domination is also a flawed theory, in that history shows it fails in practice. It should be made clear that there is no universal understanding of pluralism and therefore it is difficult to generalise all pluralists as having one understanding of the definition of pluralism....   [tags: pluralists, elite domination, debate, society]

Some Problems With Ecofeminism - Some Problems With Ecofeminism ABSTRACT: Karen Warren presents and defends the ecofeminist position that people are wrong in dominating nature as a whole or in part (individual animals, species, ecosystems, mountains), for the same reason that subordinating women to the will and purposes of men is wrong. She claims that all feminists must object to both types of domination because both are expressions of the same "logic of domination." Yet, problems arise with her claim of twin dominations. The enlightenment tradition gave rise to influential versions of feminism and provided a framework which explains the wrongness of the domination of women by men as a form of injustice....   [tags: Karen Warren Essays] 2563 words
