Simians, cyborgs, and women : the reinvention of nature / Donna J. Haraway

London : Free association books, 1991

Abstract: "Simians, Cyborgs and Women is a powerful collection of ten essays written between 1978 and 1989. Although on the surface, simians, cyborgs and women may seem an odd threesome, Haraway describes their profound link as 'creatures' which have had a great destabilizing place in Western evolutionary technology and biology. Throughout this book, Haraway analyzes accounts, narratives, and stories of the creation of nature, living organisms, and cyborgs. At once a social reality and a science fiction, the cyborg--a hybrid of organism and machine--represents transgressed boundaries and intense fusions of the nature/culture split. By providing an escape from rigid dualisms, the cyborg exists in a post-gender world, and as such holds immense possibilities for modern feminists"--Provided by publisher.

On fate

Libri Moderni

Cicero, Marcus Tullius.

On fate = De Fato / Cicero. The Consolation of philosophy = Philosophiae Consolationis IV.5-7, V / edited, with an introduction, translations and commentaries by R.W. Sharples.

Warminster, England : Aris & Phillips, c1991.

Abstract: Cicero and Boethius did more than anyone else to transmit the insights of Greek philosophy to the Latin culture of Western Europe which has played so influential a part in our civilisation to this day. Cicero's treatise On Fate, though surviving only in a fragmentary and mutilated state, records contributions to the discussion of a central philosophical issue, that of free will and determinism, which are comparable in importance to those of twentieth-century philosophers and indeed sometimes anticipate them. Study of the treatise has been hindered by the lack of a combined Latin text and English translation based on a clear understanding of the arguments; Dr Sharples' text is intended to meet this need. The last book of Boethius' Consolation is linked with Cicero's treatise by its theme, the relation of divine foreknowledge to human freedom.

The poet's wisdom : the humanists, the church, and the formation of philosophy in the early Renaissance / by T. Kircher.

Leiden ; Boston : Brill, 2006.

Brill's studies in intellectual history, ; v. 133

Abstract: The book explores the philosophical thinking of Petrarch and Boccaccio in contrast to the writings of contemporary mendicants. Examining both Latin and vernacular works, it investigates how these humanists poetically express the temporal, subjective, and emotional quality of moral sensibility, in a way that shifts to the reader the weight of discerning the ethical message. The book centers its analysis on a series of paradoxes pondered by these humanists: the self that changes yet persists over time; the awareness of self-deception; the individual's validation of authority; and the ethics of pleasure. This study is valuable to those interested in Renaissance philosophy, literature, religion, and the history of ideas.

Diritti umani e teoria critica : per un'idea di universalismo pluralista / Claudio Corradetti

Broni (Pavia) : Altravista, ©2018

Teoria e ricerca sociale e politica ; 11

Abstract: Nowadays human rights are the lingua franca of international relations and cooperation policies bewtween states. However, they are also fragile tools, sometimes manipulated to develop national interests. How can we observe the universal principles of human rights? How do we justfy the legitimate practices derived by them? In this book, the author analyses philosophical and juridical matters to suggest the political and constitutional lines underlying the people ideal of justice. The core of the debate is the most recent theory by J. Habermas, leading exponent of the Critical Theory nowadays, and one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century. The author discusses this line of thought, suggesting that human rights open a new dimension of universalism, a level here defined in terms of "pluralistic universalism".

Fåaråabåi.

Al-Fåaråabåi's philosophical lexicon = Qåamåus al-Fåaråabåi al-falsafåi / Ilai Alon ; Volume one - Arabic text.

[Cambridge] : E.J.W. Gibb Memorial Trust, 2002.

Abstract: Al-Farabi (d. 950AD) was perhaps the most original and influential of all Muslim philosophers in the Middle Ages. Great thinkers within the Islamic world from Ibn Bajjah to Ibn Rushd, as well as many outside it, such as Maimonides, St Thomas Aquinas and Spinoza refer to his works with the greatest of deference. Al-Farabi's main contribution is the co-systemization of various spiritual disciplines in Islamic non-traditional culture, using them in a courageous and sophisticated manner for promoting a universal world view. According to his view, different cultures and human groups show similar behaviour in similar circumstances, which is evident among other areas in their language, religion, politics and music. The present work compares the Arabic terminology of Al-Farabi with that of his predecessors, by using their own sets of definitions. An English translation is also provided in a separate volume. Wherever possible, Greek parallel terminology is provided, together with the Hebrew and Latin terminologies used in the medieval translations of Al-Farabi's works. The work's two volumes include detailed indices, a detailed bibliography of the philosopher, and an interpretative essay.

Kant, Immanuel

An answer to the question 'What is enlightenment'? / Immanuel Kant ; translated by H.B. Nisbet.

Reprint ed.

London : Penguin 2009, c1991

Abstract: Immanuel Kant was one of the most influential philosophers in the whole of Europe, who changed Western thought with his examinations of reason and the nature of reality. In these writings he investigates human progress, civilization, morality and why, to be truly enlightened, we must all have the freedom and courage to use our own intellect. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.
