    In consideration of how far Wittgenstein's Catholic background may have influenced his philosophical reflections on the soul, preeminent author Fergus Kerr explores aspects of Wittgenstein's personal and professional life. Beginning with a largely biographical study of Wittgenstein, Kerr argues that Wittgenstein's philosophy was partly prompted by his strong reaction against what he regarded as an excessively rationalistic type of Catholic apologetics that he was taught in his early school years. His serious interest as a student at Cambridge in experimental psychology and in the works of Freud is documented.

This is the first full-scale commentary on the 'Cratylus' & offers a definitive interpretation of the dialogue.

  • 'On the Republic' and 'On the Laws' (Agora Editions)

    By Marcus Tullius Cicero

    • Publisher: Cornell University Press
    • Published: December 2013
    Cicero's On the Republic and On the Laws are his major works of political philosophy. They offer his fullest treatment of fundamental political questions: Why should educated people have any concern for politics? Is the best form of government simple, or is it a combination of elements from such simple forms as monarchy, aristocracy, and democracy? Can politics be free of injustice? The two works also help us to think about natural law, which many people have considered since ancient times to provide a foundation of unchanging, universal principles of justice.On the Republic features a defense of politics against those who advocated abstinence from public affairs. It defends a mixed constitution, the actual arrangement of offices in the Roman Republic, against simple forms of government. The Republic also supplies material for students of Roman history—as does On the Laws. The Laws, moreover, presents the results of Cicero's reflections as to how the republic needed to change in order not only to survive but also to promote justiceDavid Fott’s vigorous yet elegant English translation is faithful to the originals. It is the first to appear since publication of the latest critical edition of the Latin texts. This book contains an introduction that both places Cicero in his historical context and explicates the timeless philosophical issues that he treats. The volume also provides a chronology of Cicero’s life, outlines of the two works, and indexes of personal names and important terms.
  • 'Society Must Be Defended': Lectures at the Collège de France, 1975-1976

    From 1971 until 1984 at the College de France, Michel Foucault gave a series of lectures to the general public that ranged over the breadth of his research. In 'Society Must Be Defended,' he deals withthe emergence in the early 17th century of a new understanding of war as the permanent basis of all institutions of power, a hidden presence within society decipherable via an historical analysis. Based on this tracing, Foucault outlines a genealogy of power and knowledge that has become his dominant concern culminating in an extraordinary discussion of modern racism. Notes, index. 310p.
