0805. Tác giả chính: Thomas Hurka
Nhan đề: Virtue, vice, and value / Thomas Hurka
Số phân loại : 179.9 TH429; Đặc điểm vật lý: ix, 272 p. : ill. ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : What are virtue and vice, and how do they relate to other moral properties such as goodness and rightness? Thomas Hurka defends a distinctive perfectionist view according to which the virtues are higher-level intrinsic goods, ones that involve morally appropriate attitudes to other, independent goods and evils. He develops this highly original view in detail and argues for its superiority over rival views, including those given by virtue ethics      .

Nhan đề: Trust : self-interest and the common good / Marek Kohn
Số phân loại : 179.9 M109; Đặc điểm vật lý: ix, 150 p. ; 20 cm
     *Tóm tắt : The book discusses trust in gods and how people have sought to reinvest this trust as religious faith has diminished; the effect of low social trust on economic development; and the loss of trust between mutually antagonistic communities, each warming itself by the flames of its hostility to the other. He shows how Communism relied on distrust, and devoted much of its energy to seeding it among its subjects, and Liberal democracy is also based on distrust, but in the opposite direction: it is founded upon the suspicion that the powerful will be tempted to abuse their power, and so must be subject to checks and balances. Perhaps most important, he shows that if we understand what makes trust possible, and why it matters, then we will live better lives in a fast-moving, fast-changing, global society01/12/2011      .


0807. Tác giả chính: Alastair S. Gunn
Nhan đề: Hold paramount : the engineer’s responsibility to society / Alastair S. Gunn, P. Aarne Vesilind
Số phân loại : 179.962 A103; Đặc điểm vật lý: xiv, 160 p. : ill. ; 24 cm
Tác giả khác: P. Aarne Vesilind
     *Tóm tắt : Alastair S. Gunn and P. Aarne Vesilind provide students with practical insight into the engineering code of ethics and how a practicing engineer is obligated to act in a responsible manner. To illustrate the complexities involved with acting in an ethical fashion, the authors have created characters that encounter a number of situations that test the engineering code of ethics. The dialog between these characters highlights different perspectives of realistic situations that students will face as practicing engineers. As they proceed through the book, students see how the code can help in decision making, as well as the implications of various decisions. The philosophical theory that supports the ethical positions encountered is presented as boxed material following each section      .


0808. Tác giả chính: C.C.W. Taylor
Nhan đề: Pleasure, mind, and soul : selected papers in ancient philosophy / C.C.W. Taylor
Số phân loại : 180 T112; Đặc điểm vật lý: xviii, 368 p. ; 24 cm
     *Tóm tắt : C.C.W. Taylor presents a selection of his essays in ancient philosophy, drawn from forty years of writings on the subject. The central theme of the volume is the moral psychology of Plato and Aristotle, with a special focus on pleasure and related concepts, an area central to Greek ethical thought. Taylor also discusses Socrates and the Greek atomists (including the Epicureans), showing how Plato's ethics grows out of the thought of Socrates, and that pleasure is also a central concept for the atomists.   Pleasure, Mind, and Soul provides a fascinating survey of a range of important topics in the work of some of the greatest ancient philosophers, and which remain the subject of lively philosophical debate today      .


0809. Tác giả chính: Marie-Louise Friquegnon
Nhan đề: On Shantarakshita / Marie-Louise Friquegnon
Số phân loại : 181.043 M109; Đặc điểm vật lý: 96 p. ; 22 cm
     *Tóm tắt : This brief text assists students in understanding Shantaraksita's philosophy and thinking so they can more fully engage in useful, intelligent class dialogue and improve their understanding of course content. Part of the Wadsworth Notes Series, (which will eventually consist of approximately 100 titles, each focusing on a single "thinker" from ancient times to the present), ON SHANTARAKSITA is written by a philosopher deeply versed in the philosophy of this key thinker. Like other books in the series, this concise book offers sufficient insight into the thinking of a notable philosopher, better enabling students to engage in reading and to discuss the material in class and on paper      .


0810. Tác giả chính: Bryan W. Van Norden
Nhan đề: Confucius and the Analects : new essays / edited by Bryan W. Van Norden
Số phân loại : 181.112 BR600; Đặc điểm vật lý: x, 342 tr. ; 24 cm
     *Tóm tắt : Confucius is one of the most influential figures--as historical individual and as symbol--in world history; and the Analects, the sayings attributed to Confucius and his disciples, is a classic of world literature. Nonetheless, how to understand both figure and text is constantly under dispute. Surprisingly, this volume is the first and only anthology on these topics in English. Here, contributors apply a variety of different methodologies (including philosophical, phililogical, and religious) and address a number of important topics, from Confucius and Western "virtue ethics" to Confucius' attitude toward women to the historical composition of the text of the Analects. Scholars will appreciate the rigor of these essays, while students and beginners will find them accessible and engaging      .


0811. Tác giả chính: George Cronk
Nhan đề: On Shankara / George Cronk
Số phân loại : 181.482 G205; Đặc điểm vật lý: 98 p. ; 22 cm
     *Tóm tắt : ON SHANKARA, like other titles in the Wadsworth Philosopher's Series, offers a concise, yet comprehensive, introduction to this philosopher's most important ideas. Presenting the most important insights of well over a hundred seminal philosophers in both the Eastern and Western traditions, the Wadsworth Philosophers Series contains volumes written by scholars noted for their excellence in teaching and for their well-versed comprehension of each featured philosopher's major works and contributions. These titles have proven valuable in a number of ways. Serving as standalone texts when tackling a philosophers' original sources or as helpful resources for focusing philosophy students' engagements with these philosopher's often conceptually daunting works, these titles have also gained extraordinary popularity with a lay readership and quite often serve as "refreshers" for philosophy instructors      .
