Boundaries of Toleration

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/boundaries-of-toleration-2...
How can people of diverse religious, historical, ethnic, and linguistic allegiances and identities live together without committing violence, inflicting suffering, or oppressing each other? Western civilization has long understood this dilemma as a question of toleration, yet the logic of toleration and the logic of multicultural rights entrenchment are two very different things. In this volume, contributors suggest we also think beyond toleration to mutual respect, practiced before the creation of modern multiculturalism in the West. Salman Rushdie reflects on the once mutually tolerant Sufi-Hindu culture of Kashmir. Ira Katznelson follows with an intellectual history of toleration as a layered institution in the West and councils against assuming we have transcended the need for such tolerance. Charles Taylor advances a new approach to secularism in our multicultural world, and Akeel Bilgrami responds by urging caution against making it difficult to condemn or make illegal dangerous forms of intolerance. The political theorist Nadia Urbanati explores why the West did not pursue Cicero's humanist ideal of concord as a response to religious discord. The volume concludes with a refutation of the claim that toleration was invented in the West and is alien to non-Western cultures.

Socrate

https://www.kobo.com/us/it/ebook/socrate-10...
In questo libro, diventato ben presto un classico della storiografia filosofica, Alfred Edward Taylor, tra i massimi studiosi inglesi della prima metà del Novecento, presenta la sua originale interpretazione di Socrate come fondatore della metafisica e dell'etica occidentali. Il Socrate dei dialoghi platonici non è una semplice finzione letteraria usata da Platone per discutere le proprie teorie, ma esprime le idee del Socrate storico: questa è la tesi che guida il racconto della vita e del pensiero del filosofo ateniese scritto da Taylor con prosa elegante, chiarezza concettuale e acume storiografico. Accanto alla nozione di anima, che condizionerà l'intera tradizione filosofica occidentale, Taylor enfatizza il tratto etico del sapere socratico, che non mira a una concezione teoretica definitiva e tende a risolversi nell'esortazione a una costante consapevolezza, da parte dell'uomo, delle proprie capacità intellettuali e spirituali.

Aristotle

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/aristotle-44...
It has not commonly been the lot of philosophers, as it is of great poets, that their names should become household words. We should hardly call an Englishman well read if he had not heard the name of Sophocles or Molière. An educated man is expected to know at least who these great writers were, and to understand an allusion to the Antigone or Le Misanthrope. But we call a man well read if his mind is stored with the verse of poets and the prose of historians, even though he were ignorant of the name of Descartes or Kant. Yet there are a few philosophers whose influence on thought and language has been so extensive that no one who reads can be ignorant of their names, and that every man who speaks the language of educated Europeans is constantly using their vocabulary. Among this few Aristotle holds not the lowest place. We have all heard of him, as we have all heard of Homer. He has left his impress so firmly on theology that many of the formulae of the Churches are unintelligible without acquaintance with his conception of the universe. If we are interested in the growth of modern science we shall readily discover for ourselves that some knowledge of Aristotelianism is necessary for the understanding of Bacon and Galileo and the other great anti-Aristotelians who created the "modern scientific" view of Nature. If we turn to the imaginative literature of the modern languages, Dante is a sealed book, and many a passage of Chaucer and Shakespeare and Milton is half unmeaning to us unless we are at home in the outlines of Aristotle's philosophy. And if we turn to ordinary language, we find that many of the familiar turns of modern speech cannot be fully understood without a knowledge of the doctrines they were first forged to express. An Englishman who speaks of the "golden mean" or of "liberal education," or contrasts the "matter" of a work of literature with its "form," or the "essential" features of a situation or a scheme of policy with its "accidents," or "theor

Ghost Train

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/ghost-train-5...
It all happened one day when veteran engineer Alfred Turner tried to keep from hitting something he saw on the tracks ahead. Whatever he plowed through has sent him into some bizarre land where he's confronted by a skeleton that states he's stuck for all eternity. Will Alfred really be stranded aboard the Ghost Train forever? Or will he find a way back? Excerpt: Attention back on the controls, Alfred jumped in shock as they moved by themselves; the sudden screeching of steel-on-steel made him cover his ears as his train slid to a halt. Noticing the light difference in the cab, he looked out the window and saw only black. He climbed down from his engine, astounded by the vast darkness, and found the train appeared to glow an eerie red as it sat motionless; steam emerged from various locations on his locomotive and around the cylinders which housed its large pistons. He ran along side his train to check over the couplers and brake lines but stopped once he reached the tank car, wondering why he had even bothered. He figured he was dead."No you're not," a high-pitched voice behind him called. "You are now between dimensions; stuck for all eternity."Why?" Alfred had asked when he had flung around in surprise. "And why with the train?" What he saw just about made him die from fright: a glowing white skeleton dressed like a clown with small pulsating red eyes."It was fun!" The skeleton had explained with a cruel laugh. Before Alfred had had a chance to further his questions, which wouldn't have helped at all, the skeleton disappeared. That had been, from what the calendar in the Pullman car read, about one hundred years ago as the train seemed move to random time periods. Alfred didn't age and his mid-thirty-year-old appearance remained.
