(P/B) LEARNING FROM SIX PHILOSOPHERS (VOLUME TWO)
DESCARTES, SPINOZA, LEIBNIZ - LOCKE, BERKELEY, HUME
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0048

In this volume Jonathan Bennett examines the views of Locke, Berkeley, and Hume on thought and sensation, meaning, language, classification, innate ideas and knowledge, our knowledge of necessary truths (bringing in Descartes and Leibniz as well), the basis for our belief that we live in a world of material things, causation, the fundamental difference between colours and shapes, the passage of time and our ability to live through it. While finding much to criticize, Bennett shows that we can learn much about these and other topics under t...

A STUDY IN SOCIAL THEORY
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS

Winner of the Outstanding Scholarship Award of the Crime and Delinquency Division of the Society for the Study of Social Problems, USA.

(P/B) THE MACEDONIAN STATE
THE ORIGINS, INSTITUTIONS AND HISTORY
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0172

In 338 BC Philip II of Macedon established Macedonian rule over Greece; he was succeeded in 336 by his son Alexander the Great, whose conquests in the twelve years that followed reached as far as the Russian steppes, Afghanistan, and the Punjab, and created the Hellenistic world. The study of Macedonia is now a growing point in ancient history. The first ever history of ancient Macedonia has now been completed in three volumes by N. G. L. Hammond, helped by G. T. Griffith and F. W. Walbank. On the basis of that work Professor Hammond now p...

(P/B) LEARNING FROM SIX PHILOSOPHERS (VOLUME ONE)
DESCARTES, SPINOZA, LEIBNIZ - LOCKE, BERKELEY, HUME
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0047

Jonathan Bennett engages with the thought of six great thinkers of the early modern period: Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Locke, Berkeley, Hume. While not neglecting the historical setting of each, his chief focus is on the words they wrote. What problem is being tackled? How exactly is the solution meant to work? Does it succeed? If not, why not? What can we learn from its success or its failure? These questions reflect Bennett's dedication to engaging with philosophy as philosophy, not as museum exhibit, and they require a close and deman...

(P/B) ARISTOTLE: DE PARTIBUS ANIMALIUM I ET DE GENERATIONE ANIMALIUM I
(with passages from Book II. 1-3)
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0123

In De Partibus Animalium I Aristotle sets out his philosophy of biology, discussing cause, necessity, soul, genus, and species, definition by logical division, and general methodology. In De Generatione Animalium I he applies his hylomorphic philosophy to the problem of animal reproduction. The translation is close, and includes passages from De Generatione Animalium II which complete Aristotle's theory of reproduction. The notes interpret Aristotle's arguments and discuss his views on major issues such as natural teleology. Edited and tr...

(P/B) INVENTING THE BARBARIAN
GREEK SELF-DEFINITION THROUGH TRAGEDY
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0171

Incest, polygamy, murder, sacrilege, impalement, castration, female power, and despotism: these are some of the images by which the Greek tragedians defined the non-Greek, `barbarian' world. This book explains for the first time the reasons behind their singular fascination with barbarians. It sets the plays against the historical background of the Panhellenic wars against Persia and the establishment of an Athenian empire based on democracy and slavery. Contemporary anthropology and political philosophy is discussed, revealing how the poe...

(H/B) THE CHROMATIC FOURTH
DURING FOUR CENTURIES OF MUSIC
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0169

Despite its rather forbidding name, the `Chromatic Fourth' is one of the most familiar short themes in virtually all western music over the four hundred years before the middle of our century. It is a sequence of six notes that can be heard in a huge variety of ways, most originally, effectively, and beautifully in the work of the greatest composers, from the madrigalists to Stravinsky, from Byrd to Barto'k, with telling examples in the operas of Monteverdi, Mozart, and Wagner, or in the keyboard music of Bull, Bach, and Schubert. Although...

(P/B) THE LANGUAGE OF MUSIC
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0170

This important and controversial book has come to be regarded as a modern classic. Originally published in 1959, it has exerted a profound influence on all subsequent discussion in the field of musical aesthetics. The author's thesis is that the main characteristic of music is to express and evoke emotion, and that all composers whose music has a tonal basis have used the same, or closely similar, melodic phrases, harmonies, and rhythms to express and evoke the same emotions. He supports this view with numerous musical examples, varying fr...

(P/B) LOGICAL PROPERTIES
IDENTITY, EXISTENCE, PREDICATION, NECESSITY, TRUTH
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0168

The concepts of identity, existence, predication, necessity, and truth are at the centre of philosophy and have rightly received sustained attention. Yet Colin McGinn believes that orthodox views of these topics are misguided in important ways. Philosophers and logicians have often distorted the nature of these concepts in an attempt to define them according to preconceived ideas. Logical Properties aims to respect the ordinary ways we talk and think when we employ these concepts, while at the same time showing that they are far more inter...

(H/B) NAVAL WEAPONS SYSTEMS AND THE CONTEMPORARY LAW OF WAR
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0167

This book provides the first comprehensive critical analysis of the regulation of naval weapons during armed conflict. It examines the experience this century with the use of naval mines, submarines and anti-ship missiles, the three main naval weapons. The sources of international law relevant to an assessment of the law, that is the extant conventions, state practice, military manuals, war crimes prosecutions, and the opinions of publicists, are each extensively examined so that a clear picture of the law emerges. The book examines the im...

(P/B) PARERGA AND PARALIPOMENA (VOLUME 2)
SHORT PHILOSOPHICAL ESSAYS
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0062

This is the only complete English translation of one of the most significant and fascinating works of the great philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860). The Parerga (Volume 1) are six long essays; the Paralipomena (Volume 2) are shorter writings arranged under thirty-one different subject-headings. These works won widespread attention on their publication in 1851, and helped secure lasting international fame for Schopenhauer. Their intellectual vigour, literary power, and rich diversity are still striking today. They are essential to a...

THEORY, ANALYSIS AND APPLICATIONS

(H/B) A LEXICON OF GREEK PERSONAL NAMES (VOLUME II)
ATTICA
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0160

This book provides a complete conspectus of the evidence for every identifiable resident of Athens in antiquity, except for foreigners whose ethnic is known. It is thus both a prosopography and an onomasticon in one. In the former capacity, it is the successor to the distinguished Prosopographia Attica of J. Kirchner, published in 1903; in the latter it provides the Athenian contribution to the Lexicon of Greek Personal Names series, edited by P. M. Fraser and E. Matthews. The evidence for the denizens of Athens in antiquity is substantial...
