📝Human Nature Justice versus Power Book Synopsis : In 1971, at a time of enormous political and social change, two of the world’s leading intellectuals, Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault, were invited by the Dutch philosopher Fons Elders to debate the question: is there an ‘innate’ human nature independent of our experiences and external influences? Their debate was one of the most provocative and original debates to have occurred between contemporary philosophers and serves as a concise introduction to their respective philosophical theories. While the debate began rooted in linguistics and theory of knowledge (the core interests of the two philosophers who are arguably the defining academic minds of the late twentieth-century) it became a much wider discussion, encompassing topics from history and behaviourism to creativity, freedom and the struggle for political justice. This is an intellectually exciting record of a meeting between two important philosophers and it also serves as the best possible introduction to the essential concerns and ideas of contemporary philosophy.

📝De Boekendief Book Synopsis : Duitsland, 1939. Liesel is pas negen jaar oud wanneer ze door haar moeder naar een pleeggezin wordt gebracht. Een van haar geliefde bezittingen is een zwart boekje, dat ze vond op het graf van haar broertje. In de jaren dat Liesel bij de Hubermanns woont, wordt ze een gewiekste boekendief. Tijdens de verwoestende bombardementen klampt ze zich in de schuilkelder vast aan haar schatten. Dit is een verhaal over moed, vriendschap, liefde en overleven, dood en verdriet, verteld door de ogen van de Dood, een toepasselijke verteller. Maar zal hij haar ook sparen? De boekendief is een imponerende oorlogsroman en verdient een plaats naast Het dagboek van Anne Frank. 'Zó mooi geschreven. Hoe kan De boekendief géén succes worden?' De Volkskrant 'Dit is het soort boek dat je leven kan veranderen.' The New York Times

📝De breekbaarheid van het goede Book Synopsis : In De breekbaarheid van het goede bestudeert Martha Nussbaum verschillende opvattingen over moreel geluk uit de Oudheid. Daarbij gaat ze in op het fundamentele ethische probleem van de weerloosheid van het waardevolle: dat wat de klassieke filosofen als grondleggend beschouwen voor een goed en gelukkig leven blijkt vaak kwetsbaar voor onbeheersbare invloeden van buitenaf. Aan dit belangrijke en intrigerende probleem hebben de Grieken veelvuldig aandacht besteed, maar in de geschiedenis van de westerse filosofie werd er tot nu toe weinig over geschreven. Nussbaum behandelt dit thema zoals ze over zoveel andere filosofische onderwerpen heeft geschreven: in een inzichtelijke en aantrekkelijke vermenging van filosofie en literatuur.

📝Eichmann in Jeruzalem Book Synopsis : In 1960 werd de voormalige nazileider Adolf Eichmann in Argentinië, waar hij sinds het einde van de Tweede Wereldoorlog een anoniem bestaan had geleid, gekidnapt en naar Israël gesmokkeld. Daar stond hij in 1961 terecht voor ‘misdaden tegen de menselijkheid’. In opdracht van het tijdschrift The New Yorker woonde Hannah Arendt het Eichmannproces in Jeruzalem bij. Haar toonaangevende en omstreden reportage biedt inzicht in zowel het dagelijks verloop van het proces als in de grote onderwerpen die erachter schuilgingen: het wezen van de gerechtigheid, de houding van het joodse leiderschap onder het naziregime, en het meest omstreden onderwerp van alle: het wezen van het kwaad.

📝Francis Bacon s Inquiry Touching Human Nature Book Synopsis : Francis Bacon's 'Inquiry Touching Human Nature' is a study of Francis Bacon's moral philosophy in its relation to the enlightenment project he helped launch. Since Bacon is one of the founders of technological modernity, the book presents a meditation on the presuppositions and character of modern life. In its distinctiveness, modern life is characterized by a rejection as well as a reinterpretation of the classical and Christian approaches to life and conceptions of virtue. Svetozar Minkov follows closely Bacon's confrontation with the traditional views on courage, moderation, justice, wisdom, love, and ways of dealing with death and general adversity. Bacon had a comprehensive vision of the human situation. He can help us think through the relation between power and wisdom. And because he saw the costs or dangers of modern life as clearly as he predicted, and helped bring about, its advancements and boons, Bacon is a thinker who addresses directly and deeply our own perplexities.

📝Nature Human Nature and God Book Synopsis : Ian Barbour offers analyses of the shape and import of evolutionary theory, indeterminacy, neuroscience, information theory, and artificial intelligence. He also addresses deeper philosophical issues and the idea of nature itself. Then Barbour advances to the interconnected religious questions at the core of contemporary debate: Are humans free? Does religion itself evolve? Are we immortal? Is God omnipotent? How does God act in nature? Barbour's work offers hope that newer religious insights and imperatives occasioned by deep interaction with science can address the environmental and global challenges posed by the relentless advance of science.

📝Justifying Ethics Book Synopsis : The idea of human rights is powerful. Deriving in its modern form from the Enlightenment, this doctrine has come to denote individual rights against government oppression, including the right to freedom of thought, religion, speech, assembly, and to a fair system of criminal justice. But even in this basic political sense "human rights" means different things in different historical and cultural contexts and advocacy of such rights has frequently been challenged as subjective. In "Justifying Ethics "Jan Gorecki offers a thoroughgoing critique of the most common attempts to formulate objective standards through appeals to human nature, religion, and reason. Gorecki opens his inquiry by considering the role of norm-making concepts in the history of ethical thought, how standards of rights were claimed to conform with human nature and reason or have been stipulated by an external authoritative source such as God or social contract. He then shows how such justifications may be discounted on analytical or practical grounds using such instances as divine will, Kantian reason, and the truth value of moral judgments. With respect to empirically grounded appeals to human nature, Gorecki argues against the notion that the innate plasticity of human behavior and potential for social diversity is sufficient grounds for human rights activity without objective justification. Whatever its difficulties, the search for justification remains essential in enhancing the persuasiveness of ethical action that aims at the moral "contagion" of the people by the human rights experience and the transition from moral acceptance to legal implementation. Broad in intellectual scope, "Justifying Ethics "draws upon moral and political philosophy, social policy, psychology, history, jurisprudence, and international law to clarify the prerequisites for the success of human rights activity. The book will be of special interest to political theorists, philosophers, sociologists, and human rights activists.
