Abstract

For centuries, science and religion have been on the opposite sides of the debate about the moral nature of human beings. Now science is confirming what people of faith have long known: human morality is embedded in our biology. Drawing on the latest research in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and behavioral science, this book affirms the four-fold prophetic vision of morality as expressed hundreds of years ago by the great philosopher and theologian, the Blessed John Duns Scotus. It proclaims the dignity of the individual and celebrates freedom of will for moral living, stemming from the place of innate natural goodness where love prevails.

Abstract

Certaines œuvres du modernisme américain se définissent par leur « parti pris de la lettre ». La langue est affrontée en leur sein au risque de l'écriture. En effet, si la littérature moderne est écrite, si les œuvres postérieures à l'invention de l'imprimerie sont faites d'encre et de papier, toutes n'ont pourtant pas l'écriture pour objet. Conscientes de leur caractère matériel, de leur aliénation à la lettre, les œuvres de Gertrude Stein, E. E. Cummings et John Cage jouent et se jouent ess...

Abstract

"This book argues that John Dewey should be read as a philosopher of globalization rather than as a 'local' American philosopher. Although Dewey's political philosophy was rooted in late nineteenth and early twentieth century America, it was more importantly about the role of America in a globalized world. In returning to, and recovering the neglected global dimensions of Dewey's political philosophy, the book highlights how his insights about globalization and democracy can inform present theoretical debates. John Narayan traces the emergence of Dewey as a global democrat through an examination of his work from The public and its problems (1927) onwards. Narayan shows how Dewey sets out an evolutionary form of global and national democracy in his work, that has not been fully appreciated even by contemporary scholars of pragmatism, and which offers valuable lessons for the twenty-first century and for our own hopes for global democracy."

Abstract

À une époque où le statut légal des femmes indiquait leur position inférieure dans la société, John Stuart Mill, l’un des plus grands penseurs britanniques de son temps, s’éleva de manière répétée contre cette injustice. L’auteur du célèbre L’asservissement des femmes fit de l’égalité des sexes l’un des principaux enjeux de sa philosophie politique, au nom de la liberté individuelle et de l’égalité qu’il défendit toute sa vie. Avec le concours de Harriet Taylor, dont la participation à l’œuvr...

Abstract

Auteur majeur des lettres anglaises depuis une trentaine d'années, désormais traduit et commenté dans le monde entier, J. M. Coetzee est encore peu étudié en France et souvent perçu à travers le filtre post-colonial. Or, le romancier sud-africain est aussi un lecteur assidu des plus grands écrivains européens de l'Antiquité au XXe siècle. Depuis ses débuts, il entretient un dialogue constant avec ses prédécesseurs. Les douze essais de ce volume cernent les contours de cet intertexte qui se dé...

Abstract

John Gardner’s career was permanently changed by his publication of On Moral Fiction (1978), a controversial and derided assessment of the state of literature as Gardner saw it. By arguing for a return to greater seriousness and moral commitments in literature, Gardner found himself attacked on all sides by critics and writers who found his conservatism suspicious or simply irrelevant. In this short tribute to Gardner’s late intellectual concerns, Phil Jourdan looks at some of the difficulties in On Moral Fiction, and asks whether Gardner was rigorous enough in his deployment of various philosophical concepts through his book. Convinced that, despite any problems of argumentative method or intellectual honesty, On Moral Fiction‘s basic message should not be dismissed outright, Jourdan tries to determine what is superfluous to the book, so that we may focus on its core: a call for writers not to forget their moral influence on readers. Now that Gardner’s career is half-forgotten, it is worth remembering this impassioned and public debate on the role of literature has been around far longer than we care to pretend: throughout the centuries, as literature attempts to define itself over and over, the question of morality is always lurking in the background. In John Gardner: A Tiny Eulogy, Phil Jourdan tries to separate the man from the argument, and insists that the latter should not be dismissed because of the imperfection of the former.

Abstract

The last ten years have seen interest in Jainism increasing, with this previously little-known Indian religion assuming a significant place in religious studies. Studies in Jaina History and Culture breaks new ground by investigating the doctrinal differences and debates amongst the Jains rather than presenting Jainism as a seamless whole whose doctrinal core has remained virtually unchanged throughout its long history. The focus of the book is the discourse concerning orthodoxy and heresy in the Jaina tradition, the question of omniscience and Jaina logic, role models for women and female identity, Jaina schools and sects, religious property, law and ethics. The internal diversity of the Jaina tradition and Jain techniques of living with diversity are explored from an interdisciplinary point of view by fifteen leading scholars in Jaina studies. The contributors focus on the principal social units of the tradition: the schools, movements, sects and orders, rather than Jain religious culture in abstract. Peter Flügel provides a representative snapshot of the current state of Jaina studies that will interest students and academics involved in the study of religion or South Asian cultures.
