Aristotle: Nicomachean Ethics: Complete Edition

by Aristotle

This eBook edition of “The Nicomachean Ethics” has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
The Nicomachean Ethics is the Aristotle’s best-known work on ethics. The work, which plays a pre-eminent role in defining Aristotelian ethics, consists of ten books, originally separate scrolls, and is understood to be based on notes from his lectures at the Lyceum. The theme of the work is a Socratic question previously explored in the works of Plato, Aristotle’s friend and teacher, of how men should best live. In his Metaphysics, Aristotle described how Socrates, the friend and teacher of Plato, had turned philosophy to human questions, whereas pre-Socratic philosophy had only been theoretical. Ethics, as now separated out for discussion by Aristotle, is practical rather than theoretical, in the original Aristotelian senses of these terms. In other words, it is not only a contemplation about good living, because it also aims to create good living. It is therefore connected to Aristotle’s other practical work, the Politics, which similarly aims at people becoming good. Ethics is about how individuals should best live, while the study of politics is from the perspective of a law-giver, looking at the good of a whole community.



Right-Wing Steamroller:: Republican Dominance and the Myth of the Democratic Blue Wave

by Elias Nok

The battle for supremacy between Republicans and Democrats waged for decades across the nation is over and the Republicans have won. The Presidency, the Supreme Court, and the Congress belong to Republicans and their right-wing ideology. Much of the country is hopeful that Democrats will retake the Senate and the House come November, but they have already lost, they just don’t know it yet. Plans set in motion years ago are finally coming to fruition, and the Republican hierarchy is ready to usher in a new age of political dominance that could last unchallenged for decades to come. Can anything stop this Republican Steamroller? Not if Donald Trump, Mitch McConnel, and Paul Ryan have anything to say about it, The Democratic Blue Wave may turn out to be nothing but a ripple in a small puddle.



None of Us Are Getting out of Here Alive Death, Stepping outside Traditional Frameworks and Limitations

by Carol Simpson

Humanity is on the threshold of recognizing the fundamental error in its view on life and death. Both death as well as active life is necessary to the vital formation of a larger, more essential whole. Now, with clear, pragmatic ideas, applying an analysis of the sociology of knowledge and change as it pertains to matters of life and death, Carol Simpson focuses on ways in which we can step outside death’s traditional frameworks and limitations. She discusses death and topics related to death, such as birth, aging, the elderly and war, examining cultural differences and attitudes. She offers varying perspectives including the Buddhist view, drawing sophisticated and compelling implications and conclusions. Applying the lenses of eight key contemporary social scientists: Edgar Morin, Kenneth Gergen, Edward Stewart and Milton Bennett, Mary Catherine Bateson, Edith Doyle McCarthy, Philip Slater, and Piotr Sztompka, she adds the perspective of Buddhism’s Lotus Sutra as posited by Shakyamuni, Nichiren, Tsunesaburo Makiguchi, Josei Toda, and contemporary Buddhist philosopher, peacebuilder, educator and poet, Daisaku Ikeda. Simpson concludes that to construct a more humanistic and sustainable view of life, it is first of all crucial to establish a culture which correctly positions death in its larger living context and which assigns as its essential component an awareness of the all encompassing eternity of life.

by Karl Marx

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
Capital by Karl Marx is a foundational theoretical text in materialist philosophy, economics and politics. Marx aimed to reveal the economic patterns underpinning the capitalist mode of production, in contrast to classical political economists such as Adam Smith, Jean-Baptiste Say, David Ricardo and John Stuart Mill. Marx did not live to publish the planned second and third parts, but they were both completed from his notes and published after his death by his colleague Friedrich Engels. Capital is the most cited book in the social sciences published before 1950.The Communist Manifesto (originally Manifesto of the Communist Party) is an 1848 political pamphlet by German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Commissioned by the Communist League and originally published in London just as the revolutions of 1848 began to erupt, the Manifesto was later recognised as one of the world’s most influential political documents.
Wage Labour and Capital is an essay on economics by Karl Marx, written in 1847 and first published in articles in the Neue Rheinische Zeitung in April 1849. This essay has been widely acclaimed as the precursor to Marx’s important treatise Das Kapital.
Value, Price and Profit was a speech given to the First International Working Men’s Association in June in 1865 by Karl Marx. It was written between the end of May and June 27 in 1865, and was published in 1898.Karl Marx (1818-1883) was a famous German philosopher, economist, historian, political theorist, sociologist, journalist and revolutionary socialist.

Faith in Life: John Dewey’s Early Philosophy (American Philosophy)

by Donald J. Morse

This is the first book to consider John Dewey’s early philosophy on its own terms and to explicate its key ideas. It does so through the fullest treatment to date of his youthful masterwork, the Psychology.
This fuller treatment reveals that the received view, which sees Dewey’s early philosophy as unimportant in its own right, is deeply mistaken. In fact, Dewey’s early philosophy amounts to an important new form of idealism.

More specifically, Dewey’s idealism contains a new logic of rupture, which allows us to achieve four things:
– A focus on discontinuity that challenges all naturalistic views, including Dewey’s own later view;
– A space of critical resistance to events that is at the same time the source of ideals;
– A faith in the development of ideals that challenges pessimists like Schopenhauer and Nietzsche; and
– A non-traditional reading of Hegel that invites comparison with cutting-edge Continental philosophers, such as Adorno, Derrida, and Zizek, and even goes beyond them in its systematic approach;
In making these discoveries, the author forges a new link between American and European philosophy, showing how they share similar insights and concerns. He also provides an original assessment of Dewey’s relationship to his teacher, George Sylvester Morris, and to other important thinkers of the day, giving us a fresh picture of John Dewey, the man and the philosopher, in the early years of his career.
Readers will find a wide range of topics discussed, from Dewey’s early reflections on Kant and Hegel to the nature of beauty, courage, sympathy, hatred, love, and even death and despair.

This is a book for anyone interested in the thought of John Dewey, American pragmatism, Continental Philosophy, or a new idealism appearing on the scene.

Quantum Mechanics and the Philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead (American Philosophy Book 14)

by Michael Epperson

In Process and Reality and other works, Alfred North Whitehead struggled to come to terms with the impact the new science of quantum mechanics would have on metaphysics.

This ambitious book is the first extended analysis of the intricate relationships between relativity theory, quantum mechanics, and Whitehead’s cosmology. Michael Epperson illuminates the intersection of science and philosophy in Whitehead’s work-and details Whitehead’s attempts to fashion an ontology coherent with quantum anomalies.

Including a nonspecialist introduction to quantum mechanics, Epperson adds an essential new dimension to our understanding of Whitehead-and of the constantly enriching encounter between science and philosophy in our century.



Self, God and Immortality: A Jamesian Investigation (American Philosophy Book 12)

by Eugene Fontinell

Can we who have been touched by the scientific, intellectual, and experimental revolutions of modern and contemporary times still believe with and degree of coherence and consistency that we as individual persons are immortal. Indeed, is there even good cause to hope that we are? In examining the present relationship of reason to faith, can we find justifying reasons for faith? These are the central questions in Self, God, and Immortality, a compelling exercise in philosophical theology.

Drawing upon the works of William James and the principles of American Pragmatism, Eugene Fontinell extrapolates carefully from “data given in experience” to a model of the cosmic process open to the idea that individual identity may survive bodily dissolution.

Presupposing that the possibility of personal immortality has been established in the first part, the second part of the essay is concerned with desirability. Here, Fontinell shows that, far from diverting attention and energies from the crucial tasks confronting us here and now, such belief can be energizing and life enhancing.

The wider importance of Self, God, and Immortality lies in its pressing both immortality-believers and terminality-believers to explore both the metaphysical presuppositions and the lived consequences of their beliefs. It is the author’s expressed hope that such explorations, rather than impeding, will stimulate co-operative efforts to create a richer and more humane community.
