4 Aristotle The Ethics of Aristotle The Nicomachean Ethics
New York Penguin Classics 1955 0140440550 / 9780140440553 Paperback Very Good- 
Unmarked, exept for previous owner's name on inside cover page. Book has appearance of light use with no easily noticeable wear. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. A vigorous polemicist as well as a rational philosopher, Aristotle (384 - 322 BCE) has the task in his ethics of demonstrating how men become good and why happiness can, and should, be our goal. The success of Aristotle's endeavour may be measured by the enormous impact of his ethics on Western moral philosophy through the centuries. Composed as mere lecture notes, it possesses a startling boldness and represents an exacting, exciting challenge to the reader. By converting ethics from a theoretical to a practical science, and by introducing psychology into his study of behaviour, Aristotle both widens the field of moral philosophy and simultaneously makes it more accessible to anyone who seeks an understanding of human nature.; Penguin Classics; 7.70 X 5 X 0.80 inches; 384 pages

5 Aristotle & Hugh Lawson-Tancred The Art of Rhetoric
New York Penguin Classics 1992 0140445102 / 9780140445107 Paperback Very Good 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Spine of the book has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. With the emergence of democracy in the city-state of Athens in the years around 460 BC, public speaking became an essential skill for politicians in the Assemblies and Councils - and even for ordinary citizens in the courts of law. In response, the technique of rhetoric rapidly developed, bringing virtuoso performances and a host of practical manuals for the layman. While many of these were little more than collections of debaters' tricks, the Art of Rhetoric held a far deeper purpose. Here Aristotle (384-322 BC) establishes the methods of informal reasoning, provides the first aesthetic evaluation of prose style and offers detailed observations on character and the emotions. Hugely influential upon later Western culture, the Art of Rhetoric is a fascinating consideration of the force of persuasion and sophistry, and a compelling guide to the principles behind oratorical skill. ; Penguin Classics; 7.87 X 5.20 X 0.79 inches; 304 pages

10 BACON,FRANCIS Francis Bacon - The Essays or Counsels, Civil and Moral, of Francis Ld. Verulam, Viscount St. Albans
Mount Vernon, New York The Peter Pauper Press 1970 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Unmarked. No slip case. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. Published without Dust Jacket. Francis Bacon, 1st Viscount St Alban (s) , KC (22 January 1561 - 9 April 1626) was an English philosopher, statesman, scientist, jurist and author. He served both as Attorney General and Lord Chancellor of England. Although his political career ended in disgrace, he remained extremely influential through his works, especially as philosophical advocate and practitioner of the scientific method during the scientific revolution. Bacon has been called the creator of empiricism. His works established and popularised inductive methodologies for scientific inquiry, often called the Baconian method, or simply the scientific method. His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, much of which still surrounds conceptions of proper methodology today. Bacon was knighted in 1603, and created both the Baron Verulam in 1618, and the Viscount St Alban in 1621; as he died without heirs both peerages became extinct upon his death. He famously died by contracting pneumonia while studying the effects of freezing on the preservation of meat. ; 9.50 X 5.90 X 0.90 inches; 228 pages

12 Barker, Ernest The Politics of Aristotle
New York Oxford University Press 1962 0195003063 / 9780195003062 Softcover Good+ 
Unmarked, wear on corners and along some edges. Well bound. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. Aristotle's Politics is a key document in Western political thought. In these first two books Aristotle shows his complete mastery of political theory and practice, and raises many crucial issues still with us today. In Book I he argues vigorously for a political theory based on 'nature'. By nature, man is a 'political animal', one naturally fitted for life in a polis or state. Some people, however, are natural slaves; and women are by nature subordinate to men. Acquisition and exchange are natural, but not trading for profit. In Book II he launches a sharp attack on Plato's two 'utopias', the Republic and the Laws, and also criticizes three historical states reputed to be well governed: Sparta, Crete, and Carthage. This volume contains a close translation of these two books, together with a philosophical commentary. It is well suited to the requirements of readers who do not know Greek. ; 7.54 X 5.98 X 0.96 inches; 411 pages

15 Boethius, Ancius & V. E. Watts The Consolation of Philosophy
New York Penguin Classics 1976 0140442081 / 9780140442083 Paperback Fair 
Unmarked. Contains local underlining and previous owner's embossed stamp on inside cover; otherwise very good + condition. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. An eminent public figure under the Gothic emperor Theodoric, Boethius was also an exceptional Greek scholar, and it was to the Greek philosophers that he turned when he fell from favor and was imprisoned in Pavia. Written in the period leading up to his brutal execution, The Consolation of Philosophy is a dialogue of alternating prose and verse between the ailing prisoner and his "nurse", Philosophy, whose instruction on the nature of fortune and happiness, good and evil, fate and free will, restore his health and bring him to enlightenment. The clarity of Boethius's thought and his breadth of vision made this work hugely popular throughout medieval Europe, and his ideas suffused the thought of Chaucer and Dante. This translation makes it accessible to the modern reader while losing nothing of Boethius's poetic artistry and philosophical brilliance. ; Penguin Classics; 7.50 X 4.90 X 0.70 inches; 192 pages

19 Cernea, Ruth Fredman & Ted Cohen The Great Latke-Hamantash Debate
Chicago University Of Chicago Press 2006 0226100243 / 9780226100241 Softcover Very Good+ 
Unmarked. Probably never been read. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast, . Creation versus evolution. Nature versus nurture. Free will versus determinism. Every November at the University of Chicago, the best minds in the world consider the question that ranks with these as one of the most enduring of human history: latke or hamantash? This great latke-hamantash debate, occurring every year for the past six decades, brings Nobel laureates, university presidents, and notable scholars together to debate whether the potato pancake or the triangular Purim pastry is in fact the worthier food. What began as an informal gathering is now an institution that has been replicated on campuses nationwide. Highly absurd yet deeply serious, the annual debate is an opportunity for both ethnic celebration and academic farce. In poetry, essays, jokes, and revisionist histories, members of elite American academies attack the latke-versus-hamantash question with intellectual panache and an unerring sense of humor, if not chutzpah. The Great Latke-Hamantash Debate is the first collection of the best of these performances, from Martha Nussbaum's paean to both foodsin the style of Hecuba's Lament to Nobel laureate Leon Lederman's proclamation on the union of the celebrated dyad. The latke and the hamantash are here revealed as playing a critical role in everything from Chinese history to the Renaissance, the works of Jane Austen to constitutional law. ; 8.40 X 5.50 X 0.70 inches; 250 pages

20 Chomsky, Noam Problems of knowledge and freedom

Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and without wear. Originally delivered in 1971 as the first Cambridge lectures in memory of Bertrand Russell, Problems of Knowledge and Freedom is a masterful and cogent synthesis of Noam Chomsky's moral philosophy, linguistic analysis, and emergent political critique of Americas w'ar in Vietnam. In the first half of this wide-ranging work, Chomsky takes up Russells lifelong search for the empirical principles of human understanding, in a philosophical overview referencing Hume, Wittgenstein, von Humboldt, and others. In the following half, aptly titled On Changing the World,  Chomsky applies these concepts to the issues that would remain the focus of his increasingly political work of the periodhis criticisms of the war in Indochina and the Cold War ideology that supported it, of the centralization of U. S. Decision-making in the Pentagon and the growing influence of multinational corporations in those circles, and of the politicization of American universities in the postWorld War II years, as well as his analyses of the Cuban Missile Crisis and Nixons foreign policies. ; The Russell lectures; 8.10 X 5.50 X 0.40 inches; 111 pages
