              Machiavelli has been among the most commented upon, criticized and feared thinkers of the modern world. Infamous for his support of brutality and repression as valid political instruments, he is often portrayed as the pantomime villain of political theorists. In this whirlwind to...ur of Machiavelli's writings and eventful life, Nederman highlights the complexities in his thought, showing that he actually advocated democracy as much as dictatorship, debate as much as violence, depending upon prevailing political conditions.

              Medieval Philosophy
               

              Medieval Philosophy (Audio disc / Other, Unabridged edition)

              By Kaye, Sharon M.; Read by English, Paul

              Why do good things happen to bad people? Can we prove whether God exists? What is the difference between right and wrong? Medieval philosophers were centrally concerned with such questions: questions which are as relevant today as a thousand years ago when the likes of Anselm and... Aquinas sought to resolve them. In this fast-paced, enlightening guide, Sharon M Kaye takes us on a whistle-stop tour of medieval philosophy, revealing the debt it owes to Aristotle and Plato, and showing how medieval thought is still inspiring philosophers and thinkers today. With new translations of numerous key extracts, Kaye directly introduces the reader to the philosophers' writings and the criticisms levied against them. Including helpful textboxes throughout the book detailing key thinkers, this is an entertaining and comprehensive primer for students and general readers alike.

              The Apostle Paul has shaped the course of Christian ethics for centuries and is widely regarded as the most influential theologian in the Christian tradition. In this authoritative introduction, Morna D. Hooker offers a female perspective on a figure usually portrayed as a conser...vative misogynist. Looking behind the epistles to reconstruct the real man and his beliefs, she places the scriptures in their original context and suggests a consistent and coherent Pauline theology. Original and thought-provoking, this concise study is essential for all who seek to learn more about the most controversial figure in Christianity.

              The Northern Ireland conflict is one of the most protracted, bitter, and complex campaigns of terrorism the Western world has ever seen. Since the watershed of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, the region has come a long way, finally achieving a hard-won peace. Yet, despite once... sworn enemies now coming together in government, hostility between Unionists and Nationalists is as strong as ever, communities remain divided, and sectarian violence is rife. Covering all the key events and players, and using illuminating new evidence from recently released archives, Edwards and McGrattan's balanced introduction skilfully dissects the Troubles to offer fresh perspectives on their complicated history and legacy. Offering astute insights into the current, delicate power-sharing administration and containing interviews with influential figures from both communities, this landmark work will help anyone seeking a better understanding of the ongoing dispute over Northern Ireland.

              An icon of philosophy and psychology during the first half of the 20th century, Dewey is known as the father of functional psychology and a pivotal figure of the pragmatist movement, as well as the progressive movement in education. This concise and critical look at Dewey's work ...examines his unique take on art and religion, his naturalistic approach to science and psychology, and his contribution to political thought. The author of over forty books across a range of topic, Dewey's legacy remains not only through the works he left us, but also through the institutions he founded, which include The New School for Social Research in New York City and the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools. Hildebrand's biography brilliantly interweaves the different strands of Dewey's thought, and examines the legacy he left behind.
