The Ethics of Catholicism and the Consecration of the Intellectual

The Ethics of Catholicism and the Consecration of the Intellectual by Andre J. Bélanger
English | Jan. 6, 1997 | ISBN: 0773515178 | 251 Pages | PDF | 13 MB

Using France as the most representative case of a Catholic context, Bélanger argues that as French society became more secularized intellectuals replaced the clergy as arbitrators of justice and enlightenment. Catholic morality was consolidated by the scholastic tradition and confirmed by the Counter-Reformation, providing the foundation that allowed the establishment of a lay elite. Bélanger describes the progressive takeover of positions of influence by the new elite in Catholic society and examines arguments used by thinkers from the seventeenth to the twentieth century to legitimize their positions.

Eroticism and the Body Politic

Eroticism and the Body Politic (Parallax: Re-visions of Culture and Society) by Lynn Hunt
English | Sep. 1, 1990 | ISBN: 0801840279 | 252 Pages | PDF | 24 MB

By the end of the nineteenth century, women had become an undeniable force both in the public discussion of social life and in politics itself. Yet in art and literature women's bodies continued to be represented– and domesticated– by men. They were still more often the object of the artist's or writer's gaze than they were the subject of their own representing processes. The erotic potential of women's bodies, however, was far from a marginal concern in the elaboration of modern forms of politics, art, literature, and psychology.

Genre: Biology

A rich, sweeping, and compelling work of botanical history, The Cabaret of Plants explores dozens of plant species that for millennia have challenged our imaginations, awoken our wonder, and upturned our ideas about history, science, beauty, and belief. Going back to the beginnings of human history, Richard Mabey shows how flowers, trees, and plants have been central to human experience not just as sources of food and medicine but as objects of worship, actors in creation myths, and symbols of war and peace, life and death.
