John Cottingham, "Philosophy and the Good Life: Reason and the Passions in Greek, Cartesian and Psychoanalytic Ethics"

Can philosophy enable us to lead better lives through a systematic understanding of our human nature? John Cottingham’s thought-provoking study examines three major philosophical approaches to this problem. Starting with the attempts of Classical philosophers to cope with the recalcitrant forces of the passions, he moves on to examine the moral psychology of Descartes, and concludes by analyzing the insights of modern psychoanalytic theory into the human predicament. His study provides a fresh and challenging perspective on moral philosophy and psychology for students and specialists alike.

David Harvey, "Marx, Capital, and the Madness of Economic Reason"
English | ISBN: 0190691484 | 2017 | 252 pages | AZW3 | 1373 KB
Karl Marx’s Capital is one of the most important texts written in the modern era. Since 1867, when the first of its three volumes was published, it has had a profound effect on politics and economics in theory and practice throughout the world. But Marx wrote in the context of capitalism in the second half of the nineteenth century, and his assumptions and analysis need to be updated in order to address to the technological, economic, and industrial change that has followed Capital’s initial publication. In Marx, Capital, and the Madness of Economic Reason, David Harvey not only provides a concise distillation of his famous course on Capital, but also makes the text relevant to the twenty-first century’s continuing processes of globalization. This book serves as an accessible window into Harvey’s unique approach to Marxism and takes readers on a riveting roller coaster ride through recent global history. It demonstrates how and why

On Trial for Reason Science, Religion, and Culture in the Galileo Affair


On Trial for Reason: Science, Religion, and Culture in the Galileo Affair by Maurice A. Finocchiaro
English | December 1, 2019 | ISBN: 0198797923 | True EPUB | 304 pages | 2.4 MB
In 1633, the Roman Inquisition condemned Galileo as a suspected heretic for defending the astronomical theory that the earth moves, and implicitly assuming the theological principle that Scripture is not scientific authority. This controversial event has sent ripples down the centuries, embodying the struggle between a thinker who came to be regarded as the Father of Modern Science, and an institution that is both one of the world’s greatest religions and most ancient organizations. The trial has been cited both as a clear demonstration of the incompatibility between science and religion, and also a stunning exemplar of rationality, scientific method, and critical thinking.
