Автор: Edmund Russell Название: War and Nature ISBN: 0521790034 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521790031 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 39650 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: War and Nature combines discussion of technology, nature, and warfare to explain the impact of war on nature and vice versa. While cultural and scholarly traditions have led us to think of war and control of nature as separate, this book uses the history of chemical warfare and pest control as a case study to show that war and control of nature coevolved. Ideologically, institutionally, and technologically, the paths of chemical warfare and pest control intersected repeatedly in the twentieth century. These intersections help us understand the development of total war and the rise of the modern environmental movement.

Описание: Nothing is sacred. Sex, morality, politics, society. In What I Believe, first published in 1925, Russell took on organized religion. Along with Why I Am Not A Christian, this essay must rank as the most articulate example of Russell's famed atheism. It is also one of the most notorious. Used as evidence in a 1940 court case in which Russell was declared unfit to teach college-level philosophy, What I Believe was to become one of his most defining works. The ideas contained within were and are controversial, contentious and - to the religious - downright blasphemous. More than three quarters of a century after it was written, the arguments within this essay continto challenge one's faith and assumptions. A remarkable work, it remains the best concise introduction to Russell's thought.

Описание: The key to human nature that Marx found in wealth and Freud in sex, Bertrand Russell finds in power. Power, he argues, is man's ultimate goal, and is, in its many guises, the single most important element in the development of any society. Written in the late 1930s when Europe was being torn apart by extremist ideologies and the world was on the brink of war, Russell set out to found a 'new science', one which would make sense of the traumatic events of the day and offer an explanation for those that would follow. The result was Power, a remarkable book which Russell regarded as one of the most important of his long career. Countering the totalitarian desire to dominate, Russell shows how political enlightenment and human understanding can lead to peace - his book is a passnate call for independence of mind and a celebration of the instinctive joy of human life.

Описание: Intolerance and bigotry lie at the heart of all human suffering. So claims Bertrand Russell at the outset of In Praise of Idleness, a collection of essays in which he espouses the virtues of cool reflection and free enquy; a voice of calm in a world of maddening unreason. With characteristic clarity and humour, Russell surveys the social and political consequences of his beliefs. From a devastating critique of the ancestry of fascism to a vehement defence of 'useless' knowledge, with consideration given to everything from insect pests to the human soul, In Praise of Idleness is a tour de force that only Bertrand Russell could perform.

Описание: Why I Am Not a Christian is considered one of the most blasphemous philosophical documents ever written, and at a time when we have faith schools and wars over religious beliefs, its message today couldn't be more relevant. If religion provides comfortable responses to the questions that have always beset humankind - why are we here, what is the point of being alive, how ought we to behave - then Russell snatches that comfort away, leaving us instead with other, more troublesome alternatives: responsibility, autonomy, self-awareness. If it were possible to sum up this book in a sentence, then it would be that the time to live is now, the place to live is here, and the way to be happy is to ensure others are happy. And what it all boils down to, is that disbelief is but a matter of believing. Ranked alongside Voltaire's Candide, Tom Paine's Age of Reason, Martin Scorsese's The Last Temptation ohrist, and Monty Python's The Life of Brian, Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian has made some odd bedfellows over the years. While its tone is playful and frivolous, it poses tough questions over the nature of religion and belief.
Автор: Russell B. Goodman Название: Wittgenstein and William James ISBN: 0521038871 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521038874 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 19200 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: This book explores Wittgenstein’s long engagement with the work of the pragmatist William James. In contrast to previous discussions Russell Goodman argues that James exerted a distinctive and pervasive positive influence on Wittgenstein’s thought. For example, the book shows that the two philosophers share commitments to anti-foundationalism, to the description of the concrete details of human experience, to the priority of practice over intellect, and to the importance of religion in understanding human life. Considering in detail what Wittgenstein learnt from his reading of Principles of Psychology and Varieties of Religious Experience the author provides considerable evidence for Wittgenstein’s claim that he is saying ‘something that sounds like pragmatism’. This provocative account of the convergence in the thinking of two major philosophers usually considered as members of discrete traditions will be eagerly sought by students of Wittgenstein, William James, pragmatism and the history of twentieth-century philosophy.
