The Theory of Relativity & Other Essays, Albert Einstein
2 Albert Einstein The Theory of Relativity & Other Essays
New York MJF 1950 1567312470 / 9781567312478 Hard Cover New New 
E=mc2: It may be Einstein’s most well-known contribution to modern science, but how many people understand the thought process or physics behind this famous equation? In this collection of his seven most important essays on physics, Einstein guides the listener step-by-step through the many layers of scientific theory that formed a starting point for his discoveries. By both supporting and refuting the theories and scientific efforts of his predecessors, Einstein reveals in a clear voice the origins and meaning of such significant topics as physics and reality, the fundamentals of theoretical physics, the common language of science, the laws of science and of ethics, and an elementary derivation of the equivalence of mass and energy. This remarkable collection allows the general reader to understand not only the significance of Einstein’s masterpiece, but also the brilliant mind behind it.

4 Aristotle The Nicomachean Ethics
Amherst, NY Prometheus Books 1987 0879753781 / 9780879753788 Trade Paperback Very Good 
Light cover wear. What is the good life? How can we attain true happiness? How are we to understand the concepts of good, bad, right, wrong, virtue, and vice as they intermingle and pervade the human actions that make up society? In one of the earliest and most comprehensive attempts to offer a systematic treatment of ethics and the principles upon which it rests, the Greek philosopher Aristotle seeks to give substance and meaning to human action and to the manner in which we judge our own behavior and that of others. Here Aristotle not only offers a discussion of morality that later culminated in a full-blown analysis of political life, but he also sets forth principles and advice that served as the touchstone for many subsequent moral philosophies.

Downers Grove, IL IVP 1985 0877843430 / 9780877843436 Paperback Good 
Sturdy. There is a light water stain on the top corner of several pages. No underlines. Is there a God? How can we know? What can we know about God? These questions are the focal points of the philosophy of religion. C. Stephen Evans wrestles with these issues, looking at the classical arguments for God's existence and examining the contemporary challenges to theism from sociology, psychology and philosophy. He investigates the meaning and significance of personal religious experience, revelation and miracles, and looks at how religious pluralism relates to individual commitment.

Ann Arbor, MI Servant Publications 1989 0892833092 / 9780892833092 Hard Cover Very Good Good 
Previous owner's name on first page. Ten years ago when Charles Colson's top-selling Against the Night appeared, he described the demise of Western culture as the "new dark ages." The book describes in particular the ominous shadows that have engulfed politics, family life and education. Today as we face the new millennium, the book is still pertinent, as the darkness has not lifted. It seems in many ways to have thickened. Against the Night, however, is not pessimistic. It gives Christians hope that as we regain our vision of living in God's kingdom and being God's people, we will be a light in the darkness.

Swindoll 'Kingdoms in Conflict is a classic that belongs on every Christian's bookshelf.' -Dr. James C. Dobson 'This was a book waiting for Chuck Colson to write. As no other evangelical author can, Colson brings his political experience, thoroughly changed life, and lucid writing together at just the right time...' -Moody Monthly 'The arguments- church-state, the correct admixture between the two- are familiar grist for controversial mills, but Colson does wonderful theatrical instruction in his book...' - William F. Buckley, Jr. 'In Kingdoms in Conflict Charles W. Colson masterfully weds the two subjects he knows best- politics and Christian faith.' -Russell Chandler 'Kingdoms in Conflict offers a welcomed new insight into an age-old question.' - Jack Anderson 'One cannot be a passive reader of Chuck Colson's Kingdoms in Conflict.' -Mark O.

Socratic Citizenship, Dana Villa
18 Dana Villa Socratic Citizenship
Princeton Princeton University Press 2001 0691086931 / 9780691086934 Paperback Good 
Light cover wear. Many critics bemoan the lack of civic engagement in America. Tocqueville's ''nation of joiners'' seems to have become a nation of alienated individuals, disinclined to fulfill the obligations of citizenship or the responsibilities of self-government. In response, the critics urge community involvement and renewed education in the civic virtues. But what kind of civic engagement do we want, and what sort of citizenship should we encourage? In Socratic Citizenship, Dana Villa takes issue with those who would reduce citizenship to community involvement or to political participation for its own sake. He argues that we need to place more value on a form of conscientious, moderately alienated citizenship invented by Socrates, one that is critical in orientation and dissident in practice. Taking Plato's Apology of Socrates as his starting point, Villa argues that Socrates was the first to show, in his words and deeds, how moral and intellectual integrity can go hand in hand, and how they can constitute importantly civic--and not just philosophical or moral--virtues. More specifically, Socrates urged that good citizens should value this sort of integrity more highly than such apparent virtues as patriotism, political participation, piety, and unwavering obedience to the law. Yet Socrates' radical redefinition of citizenship has had relatively little influence on Western political thought. Villa considers how the Socratic idea of the thinking citizen is treated by five of the most influential political thinkers of the past two centuries--John Stuart Mill, Friedrich Nietzsche, Max Weber, Hannah Arendt, and Leo Strauss. In doing so, he not only deepens our understanding of these thinkers' work and of modern ideas of citizenship, he also shows how the fragile Socratic idea of citizenship has been lost through a persistent devaluation of independent thought and action in public life. Engaging current debates among political and social theorists, this insightful book shows how we must reconceive the idea of good citizenship if we are to begin to address the shaky fundamentals of civic culture in America

20 David Hume Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion
New York Hafner Press 1948 Trade Paperback Fine 
David Hume is one of the most provocative philosophers to have written in English. His Dialogues ask if a belief in God can be inferred from what is known of the universe, or whether such a belief is even consistent with such knowledge. The Natural History of Religion investigates the origins of belief, and follows its development from polytheism to dogmatic monotheism. Together, these works constitute the most formidable attack upon religious belief ever mounted by a philosopher.

ABCs of Cultural-Isms, Debra Rae
22 Debra Rae ABCs of Cultural-Isms
Enumclaw WinePress Publishing 2003 1579214835 / 9781579214838 Trade Paperback New 
Picture an ancient arena. With javelin in hand, the contestant faces his antagonist—a beast poised to maim and kill. Throngs cheer as the sixty-five-foot run ensues. Almost as if in slow motion, the spear-thrower balances rhythm of his legs with back-and-forth motion of the javelin. A split-second distraction; then, suddenly, the release—a mere snap of the wrist executed with explosive effort. The mark is missed with grave consequences following. Taunting onlookers roar, "HAMARTIA!" In today’s spiritual arena, defined by what Christian author Dave Hunt calls a "religiously pluralistic international community," believers face an analogous beast. As able gladiators of old, they, too, can be distracted from Bible focus, resulting in HAMARTIA by means of these: * Liberalism and Compassionless Conservatism * Cultism and Occultism * Progressivism and Postmodernism * Syncretism and New Age Mysticism * Extreme Fundamentalism and Jingoism * Egalitarianism and Globalism By characterizing the opposing beast and honing Bible focus, "ABCs of Cultural-Isms" equips Christians "to act as athletes in concert" for the faith of the Gospel.

Downers Grove, IL IVP 1968 0877845387 / 9780877845386 Paperback Good 
Small tear has been taped on the top of the front cover. Man is dead. God is dead. Life has become meaningless existence, man a cog in a machine. The only way of escape lies in a nonrational fantasy world of experience, drugs, absurdity, pornography, an elusive "final experience," madness . . . .If this is the twentieth-century mentality, how did it come about? And how can the Christian faith be made meaningful today? In this highly original book Dr. Schaeffer traces the way in which art and philosophy have reflected the dualism in Western thinking introduced at the time of the Renaisance. Today this dualism is expressed in a despair of rationality and an escape into a nonrational world which alone offers hope. It is shown in literature, art and music, theatre and cinema, television and popular culture.

Berrien Springs, MI Andrews University Press 1998 1883925207 / 9781883925208 Trade Paperback Good 
Light wear. Several highlights. Knight's textbook surveys the philosophies and philosophic issues relevant to Christian education.

Philosophy and Education is divided into three sections. Part I deals with basic concepts in philosophy and the relationship between philosophy and education. Part II is a survey of how traditional and modern philosophies have faced the basic philosophic questions and what that has meant for educational practice. Part III discusses the necessity of developing a personal philosophy of education, one possible approach to a Christian philosophy, and some of the ramifications of such a philosophy for educational practice in Christian schools.

Ann Arbor, MI Vine Books 1999 1569551421 / 9781569551424 Paperback Used As New 
In his classic book, Harry Blamires defined and explained the essential qualities of The Christian Mind. Here he exposes the agenda of the secular mind, vividly describing the way the media is trashing Christian principles in every area of life-human rights, marriage, family, morality, health, economy, environment, politics. "What we need," says Blamires, "is a Christian backlash, a vigorous reponse to the new paganism of the contemporary world." "Like C.S. Lewis, his teacher at Oxford and later his friend, Harry Blamires has written prolifically, from textbooks in his professional field to Christian fantasy novels and diagnostic apologies for mainstream faith. His constant concern as a literary disciple is to display and defend the Christian way of thinking in a non-thinking world. "The Post-Christian Mind is true journalism . . . shrewd reporting of what people around us think and do, with interactive comment offered on a basis of common humanity, common sense, and Christian insight. . . The masterful clarity and precision of the analysis offers wisdom for us all." - J.I. Packer

Truth Is Stranger Than It Used to Be: Biblical Faith in a Postmodern Age, J. Richard Middleton & Brian J. Walsh
35 J. Richard Middleton & Brian J. Walsh Truth Is Stranger Than It Used to Be: Biblical Faith in a Postmodern Age
Downers Grove, IL IVP 1995 0830818561 / 9780830818563 Trade Paperback Very Good 
Light curling. No underlines. Voted one of Christianity Today's 1996 Books of the Year! The carnivalesque, pluralistic culture in hich we live can be seen as a consequence of the breakdown of modernity (which touted itself as the "greatest show on earth"), combined with a recognition of the socially constructed character of reality. Since the old construction has been discredited and is in a process of decomposition, the season is open on the construction of new realities which are produced with the speed and ease of temporary circus tents being raised. Far from witnessing the erosion or even eclipse of religious belief that the Enlightenment so confidently predicted, the eclipse of the Enlightenment has resulted in a veritable smorgasbord of religions and worldviews for our consumption. So Richard Middleton and Brian Walsh colorfully describe our postmodern setting. In this book they survey postmodern culture and philosophy, offering lucid explanations of such difficult theories as deconstruction. They are sympathetic to the postmodern critique, yet believe that a gospel stripped of its modernist trappings speaks a radical word of hope and transformation to our chaotic culture. The book for those who wonder what postmodernism is and how biblical Christians might best respond.

Very light wear. No markings. What does it mean to know something? Can we have confidence in our knowledge? Epistemology, the study of knowledge, can often seem like a daunting subject. And yet few topics are more basic to human life. We are inquisitive creatures by nature, and the unending quest for truth leads us to raise difficult questions about the quest itself. What are the conditions, sources and limits of our knowledge? Do our beliefs need to be rationally justified? Can we have certainty? In this primer on epistemology, James Dew and Mark Foreman guide students through this discipline in philosophy. By asking basic questions and using clear, jargon-free language, they provide an entry into some of the most important issues in contemporary philosophy.

The Universe Next Door: A Basic Worldview Catalog, James W. Sire
43 James W. Sire The Universe Next Door: A Basic Worldview Catalog
Downers Grove, IL IVP Academic 2004 0830827803 / 9780830827800 4th Edition Trade Paperback Good 
Shows light wear. When The Universe Next Door was first introduced nearly thirty years ago, it set the standard for a clear, readable introduction to worldviews. In concise, easily understood prose, James W. Sire explained the basics of theism, deism, naturalism, nihilism, existentialism, Eastern monism and the new consciousness. The second edition was updated and expanded to include sections on Marxism and secular humanism, as well as a completely reworked chapter on what is now widely known as New Age philosophy rather than new consciousness. And the third edition offered further updating and revisions, including a thoroughly revised chapter on New Age philosophy and, perhaps most importantly, a new chapter on postmodernism. Now the fourth edition refines the definition of worldview itself, incorporating Sire's thinking and teaching during the past decade. (His recent work is showcased in a new book, Naming the Elephant, also published by IVP.) The Universe Next Door has been translated into several languages and has been used as a text at over one hundred colleges and universities in courses ranging from apologetics and world religions to history and English literature. With the publication of the fourth edition, this book will continue to aid students, teachers and anyone who wants to understand the variety of worldviews that compete with Christianity for the allegiance of our minds and hearts.

The Social Contract, Jean-Jacques Rousseau
44 Jean-Jacques Rousseau The Social Contract
New York Barnes & Noble 2005 0760770212 / 9780760770214 Paperback New 
Rousseau begins The Social Contract with the notable phrase "Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains." Because these chains are not found in the state of nature, they must be constructions of convention. Rousseau thus seeks the basis for a legitimate, political authority in which people must give up their natural liberty. He sets two conditions for a lawful polity and creates several clauses to ensure that they are carried out. First, there must be no relationships of particular dependence in the state, and second, by obeying the laws, an individual only obeys himself. Rousseau's solution to the problem of legitimate authority is the "social contract," an agreement by which the people band together for their mutual preservation. This act of association creates a collective body called the "sovereign." The sovereign is the supreme authority in the state, and has its own life and will. The sovereign's interest, or the "general will," always promotes the common good. This is in contrast to the private will of each citizen, which strives only for personal benefit. The law expresses the general will, and must only make regulations that affect the entire populace. The goal of legislation is to protect liberty and equality and to promote the common good. However, the people may not always know how to pursue the common good and may need the help of a legislator to guide them in lawmaking. The legislator prevents private interests from influencing legislation and aids the populace in weighing short-term benefits against long-term costs.

Disputed Questions in Theology and the Philosophy of Religion, John Hick
48 John Hick Disputed Questions in Theology and the Philosophy of Religion
New Haven Yale University Press 1993 0300065051 / 9780300065053 Paperback Fine 
Previous owner's name is on the first blank page. Several highlights. When medieval theologians wrote their Quaestiones Disputatae, the disputed questions concerned relatively peripheral topics, for Christians agreed on all of the most basic matters. But today even the most central issues in Christianity are controversial, and Christian discourse itself is part of the wider dialogue that includes all the great religious and philosophical traditions of the world. In this book a leading philosopher of religion offers fresh insights into some of the disputed religious questions of our time. John Hick begins by addressing the most fundamental questions: whether religion is a wish-fulfilling projection or a human response to the Transcendent, and whether religious experience constitutes authentic awareness of a divine Reality. He then considers specifically Christian beliefs, such as the deity of Jesus and the problems encountered by attributing to Jesus both all divine and all human properties, and he suggests an alternative image of Jesus as a man extraordinarily open to and inspired by the divine spirit. Hick gives a personal account of how he has come to accept religious pluralism-that the major world faiths are different but equally valid responses to ultimate Reality. He considers how much Christians have to learn from Buddhism, discusses the ongoing dialogue among Jews, Christians, and Muslims, and outlines a philosophy of religions-a conception of the relationship between world religions and between them and the ultimately Real. Finally he turns to the mystery of death and, using the resources of the world religions and of parapsychology, suggests a possible conception of life after death.

Salvation finished, as to its impetration, at the death of Christ; and with respect to its application, at the death of the Christian: a funeral sermon, occasioned by the death of the Rev. Robert Hall, John Ryland
51 John Ryland Salvation finished, as to its impetration, at the death of Christ; and with respect to its application, at the death of the Christian: a funeral sermon, occasioned by the death of the Rev. Robert Hall
Bibliolife 1171020694 / 9781171020691 Paperback Very Good 
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.

Minneapolis, Minnesota Bethany House 1975 0871235358 / 9780871235350 Paperback Good 
Sturdy. Light cover wear. Dr. Montgomery contends that no one can "sit in a house by the side of the road and watch the world go by. "Everyone is caught up in the flux of human life, and there is no naturalistic resting place within human history from which one can gain a universal, absolute perspective on man's life. Christianity is the only answer to this basic human predicament, for it claims, and by the resurrection backs up its claim, that there is a God and that He entered human history and revealed its essential nature.

Finding God at Harvard: Spiritual Journeys of Thinking Christians, Kelly Monroe

Grand Rapids, MI Zondervan Publishing House 1995 0310219221 / 9780310219224 Trade Paperback Very Good 
Ari Goldman's best-selling book, The Search for God at Harvard, chronicled his search for signs of genuine religious faith at Harvard Divinity School. The New York Times reporter concluded that God was not very evident at the prestigious Ivy League campus. Kelly Monroe reveals another picture of Christian faith in a secular intellectual setting. In Finding God at Harvard, she presents the compelling testimonies of forty-two faculty members, former students, and distinguished orators at Harvard. Their candid reflections explode the myth that Christian faith cannot survive a rigorous intellectual atmosphere. Finding God at Harvard speaks to the emptiness that haunts college campuses across the country -- an emptiness that only Truth can fill. As Monroe's contributors so vividly show that truth is available to everyone, Monroe reveals another picture of Christian faith in a secular intellectual setting. In Finding God at Harvard, she presents the compelling testimonies of forty-two faculty members, former students, and distinguished orators at Harvard. Their candid reflections explode the myth that Christian faith cannot survive a rigorous intellectual atmosphere.

All God's Children and Blue Suede Shoes: Christians and Popular Culture (Turning Point Christian Worldview Series), Kenneth A. Myers
56 Kenneth A. Myers All God's Children and Blue Suede Shoes: Christians and Popular Culture (Turning Point Christian Worldview Series)
Wheaton, IL Crossway Books 1989 0891075380 / 9780891075387 Trade Paperback Good 
Where did popular culture come from? Why is it the way it is? How does it influence Americans in general and Christians in particular? Ken Myers provides fascinating answers to these questions. He sees pop culture as a culture of diversion, preventing people from asking questions about their origin and destiny and about the meaning of life. Two aspects stand out—a quest for novelty and a desire for instant gratification. In addition, this culture offers something very appealing—the illusion that you set your own standards, you can choose, you are the master of your fate, you deserve a break, you're worth it.
