Les Stoïciens III: Musonius, Épictète et Marc Aurèle (Figures du savoir t. 45) (French Edition) by Thomas Bénatouïl Book Summary:
Musonius (30 - 95/100 ?), Épictète (50/60 ? - ca 130) et Marc Aurèle (121 - 180), représentants du stoïcisme impérial, souffrent d'être les derniers d’une longue et fameuse lignée.Leur pensée est souvent réduite à une répétition scolaire des doctrines des premiers stoïciens, ou à une philosophie purement éthique voire moralisatrice, alors qu’elle est centrée sur la dimension pratique de la philosophie dans son ensemble. Que signifie concrètement « être stoïcien » ? S’agit-il seulement d’adhérer à certaines thèses ? Comment s’en imprégner et les appliquer ?On tâche ici de mettre en évidence les principes, concepts et techniques que Musonius, Épictète et Marc Aurèle élaborent pour résoudre, théoriquement et pratiquement, le problème de la mise en œuvre de la philosophie : dans sa partie éthique, mais aussi dans ses dimensions politique, épistémologique, dialectique, pédagogique, psychologique, cosmologique et théologique.Prenant pour guide l’« usage », notion-clé, on examine successivement comment les derniers stoïciens conçoivent celui des choses et des événements, d’autrui, des représentations, des facultés morales, enfin de notre vie par Dieu au sein de l’ordre du monde.Thomas Bénatouïl est maître de conférences à l'université de Nancy, spécialiste de philosophie antique, en particulier du stoïcisme. Il a publié Le Scepticisme (GF-Flammarion, 1997), Matrix, machine philosophique (Ellipses, 2003, avec A. Badiou, E. During, P. Maniglier, D. Rabouin et J.-P. Zarader), Faire usage : la pratique du stoïcisme (Vrin, 2006).
How to Write a Children's Picture Book Volume III: Figures of Speech by Eve Heidi Bine-Stock Book Summary:
Recommended by writing instructors and award-winning authors.Many of us think of children's picture books as being written mostly with simple declarative sentences. What an eye-opener to learn that they are actually filled with delightful figures of speech. I am not talking here about the common figures of speech we learn about in grade school: simile, onomatopoeia, alliteration, hyperbole and personification. I am talking about more subtle and sophisticated figures of speech which we may not even recognize as figures at all (until they are pointed out to us), but their use gives stories a charm and freshness that stands up to repeated readings. These figures have names which are eminently forgettable but the figures themselves make the stories in which they appear eminently memorable. In this volume, I point out many figures which appear in masterworks of children's picture storybooks, so that they may be appreciated and savored, and their patterns emulated in your own work.This ebook is a print replica.Download this book and get a FREE Journal & Workbook for the Children's Writer.

Lives of Victorian Political Figures, Part III: Queen Victoria, Florence Nightingale, Annie Besant and Millicent Garrett Fawcett by their Contemporaries (Pt. III) Book Summary:
The third set in this successful series focuses on four iconic female political figures from the Victorian era. Although women were excluded from the political franchise, many individuals were highly influential in public life, not least the Queen who gave her name to the period. This four-volume facsimile edition draws together contemporary sources relating to Queen Victoria (1819-1901), Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), Annie Besant (1847-1933) and Millicent Garrett Fawcett (1847-1929). Wide-ranging political issues are addressed. Women's suffrage, birth control and female education were highly contentious topics as women sought to improve their legal, educational, political, marital and economic status. However, all four women also played significant roles in wider movements of the nineteenth century, including imperial expansion, the labour movement, secularism and sanitary reform. Carefully selected extracts from biographies, memoirs, diaries, private letters and other ephemera reveal how these iconic women were viewed by their contemporaries. The edition benefits from a general introduction, volume introductions, headnotes, endnotes and a consolidated index. It will be vital to those studying Nineteenth-Century Studies, Women's History, the History of Suffrage and the History of Nursing.
Figures who Shape Scriptures, Scriptures that Shape Figures: Essays in Honour of Benjamin G. Wright III (Deuterocanonical and Cognate Literature Studies Book 40) Book Summary:
The papers of the volume investigate how authoritative figures in the Second Temple Period and beyond contributed to forming the Scriptures of Judaism, as well as how these Scriptures shaped ideal figures as authoritative in Early Judaism. The topic of the volume thus reflects Ben Wright’s research, who—especially with his work on Ben Sira, on the Letter of Aristeas, and on various problems of authority in Early Jewish texts—creatively contributed to the study of the formation of Scriptures, and to the understanding of the figures behind these texts.

The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic -- a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.++++The below data was compiled from various identification fields in the bibliographic record of this title.
