On the Harmony of Religions and Philosophy (Golden Deer Classics)

by Ibn Rushd

In this treatise Ibn Rushd (Averroes) sets out to show that the Scriptural Law (shar’) of Islam does not altogether prohibit the study of philosophy by Muslims, but, on the contrary, makes it a duty for a certain class of people, those with the capacity for “demonstrative” or scientific reasoning. Apparent conflicts between the teachings of Scripture and philosophy can be reconciled by allegorical interpretations of Scripture, though such interpretations should not be taught to the common people.



THE RISE OF CHINA: A NEW ENEMY FOR U. S. HEGEMONY?: [international relationship between the People’s Republic of China and the United States of America]

by Gregory March

China-United States relations refer to the international relationship between the People’s Republic of China and the United States of America. The history of the relationship can be traced back to when the United States gained independence. The relationship between the two countries is quite strong and is even somewhat positive. However at the same time, the relationship is also complex.

Both countries have an extremely extensive economic partnership, and a great amount of trade between the two countries necessitates somewhat positive political relations, yet significant issues exist.

It is a relationship of economic cooperation, hegemonic rivalry in the Pacific, and mutual suspicion over the other’s intentions. Therefore, each nation has adopted a wary attitude regarding the other as a potential adversary whilst at the same time being an extremely strong economic partner.

It has been described by world leaders and academics as the world’s most important bilateral relationship of the 21st century.



Les Maldives (French Edition)

by Lionel Bolnet

En seulement quelques décennies, un minuscule Ã?tat a réussi le tour de force de se rendre célèbre aux yeux du monde entier comme l’exemple du paradis sur Terre, détrônant les Seychelles ou Bora-Bora. Les Maldives sont ce genre de pays que personne ne sait positionner sur une mappemonde mais dont tout le monde connait le nom. On ne sait d’ailleurs même pas qui nous en a parlé la première fois. Un couple d’amis revenant de voyage de noces ? Une publicité dans le métro ? Un classement des plus belles plages du monde ? Ou l’un de ces fichiers Powerpoint de photos de lagons bleus que les gens s’échangeaient par e-mail au début de l’internet ?

Loin d’être un guide de voyage, ce livre propose un panorama à 360° de l’histoire, la géographie, la politique et la culture des Maldives.

Il aborde également les élections présidentielles maldiviennes de 2018.
