Book Description :

This book was originally written to serve as an outline for students in a discussion of the Christian "worldview." It suggests an approach to the world and to man's life in it that stems from the liturgical experience of the Orthodox Church. Alexander Schmemann understands issues such as secularism and Christian culture from the perspective of the unbroken experience of the Church, as revealed and communicated in her worship, in her liturgy -- the sacrament of the world, the sacrament of the Kingdom. - Publisher.

Book Description :

Santayana's Life of Reason, published in five books from 1905 to 1906, ranks as oneof the greatest works in modern philosophical naturalism. Acknowledging the natural material basesof human life, Santayana traces the development of the human capacity for appreciating andcultivating the ideal. It is a capacity he exhibits as he articulates a continuity running throughanimal impulse, practical intelligence, and ideal harmony in reason, society, art, religion, andscience. The work is an exquisitely rendered vision of human life lived sanely. In this first bookof the work, Santayana provides an account of how the human animal develops instinct, passion, andchaotic experience into rationality and ideal life. Inspired by Aristotle's De Anima, Darwin'sevolutionary theory, and William James's The Principles of Psychology, Santayana contends that therequirements of action in a hazardous and uncertain environment are the sources of the developmentof mind. More specifically, instinct and imagination are crucial to the emergence of reason fromchaos. Separating himself from the typical thought of the time by his recognition of theimagination, Santayana in this volume offers extensive critiques of various philosophies of mind,including those of Kant and the British empiricists. This Critical Edition, volume VII of The Worksof George Santayana, includes a chronology, notes, bibliography, textual commentary, lists ofvariants, and other tools useful to Santayana scholars. The other four books of the volume includeReason in Society, Reason in Religion, Reason in Art, and Reason in Science.

Book Description :

Reader be assured this narrative is no fiction. I am aware that some of my adventures may seem incredible; but they are, nevertheless, strictly true. I have not exaggerated the wrongs inflicted by Slavery; on the contrary, my descriptions fall far short of the facts. I have concealed the names of places, and given persons fictitious names. I had no motive for secrecy on my own account, but I deemed it kind and considerate towards others to pursue this course. I wish I were more competent to the task I have undertaken. But I trust my readers will excuse deficiencies in consideration of circumstances. I was born and reared in Slavery; and I remained in a Slave State twenty-seven years. Since I have been at the North, it has been necessary for me to work diligently for my own support, and the education of my children. This has not left me much leisure to make up for the loss of early opportunities to improve myself; and it has compelled me to write these pages at irregular intervals, whenever I could snatch an hour from household duties.

Book Description :

David Friedrich Strauss's Das Leben Jesu kritisch bearbeitet (1835) brought about a new dawn in Biblical criticism by applying the 'myth theory' to the life of Jesus. Strauss treated the Gospel narrative like any other historical work, and denied all supernatural elements in the Gospels. Das Leben Jesu created an overnight sensation and Strauss became embroiled in fierce controversy. This earliest English version of 1846 was translated by the novelist George Eliot, and was her first published book.
