MODERNS YEAR: Tartuffe by Moliere MODERNS YEAR: The Social Contract by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Price: $9.95
Price: $9.95
Teeming with lively humor and satirical plot devices, this timeless comedy by one of France's greatest playwrights follows the outrageous activities of a penniless scoundrel and religious pretender. Invited to live in his benefactor's house, he wreaks havoc among family members by breaking off the daughter's engagement, attempting to seduce his hostess, and resorting to blackmail and extortion. Essential reading for students of theater and literature. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative. Jean-Jacques Rousseau, in The Social Contract, propounds a doctrine which already had a long history in the struggle against the older view of the divine right of kings, namely, that government gets its authority over us by a willing consent on our part, not by the authorization of God. While Rousseau's famous opening line condemns the society of his day for its limiting of our natural spontaneity (indeed, its corruption of our natural goodness), he thinks that a good government can be justified in terms of the compromise to which each of us submits so as to gain "civil liberty and the proprietorship of all he possesses." Rousseau even thinks that we mature as human beings in such a social setting, where we are not simply driven by our appetites and desires but become self-governing, self-disciplined beings.
MODERNS YEAR: Favorite Poems by Wordsworth MODERNS YEAR: Letter on Toleration by John Locke
Price: $9.95
Price: $12.95
Widely considered the greatest and most influential of the English Romantic poets, William Wordsworth (1770-1850) remains today among the most admired and studied of all English writers. He is best remembered for the poems he wrote between 1798 and 1806, the period most fully represented in this selection of 39 of his most highly regarded works. Among them are poems from the revolutionary Lyrical Ballads of 1798, including the well-known "Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abby"; the famous "Lucy" series of 1799; the political and social commentaries of 1802; the moving "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud"; and the great "Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood"--all reprinted from an authoritative edition. The basis of social and political philosophy for generations, these two works laid the foundation of the modern democratic state in England and abroad. The Second Treatise of Government, a systematic account of the foundations of political obligation, fulfills two objectives: it refutes the concept of the monarchy's divine right and establishes a theory reconciling civil liberties with political order. Locke's Letter Concerning Toleration, arguing for a broad acceptance of alternative religious convictions, is a corollary of his theory of the nature of civil society. Both are essential reading for students of philosophy, history, and political science.
MODERNS YEAR: Othello by William Shakespeare MODERNS YEAR: Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysics of Morals by Kant
Price: $12.95
Price: $12.95
One of the greatest of Shakespeare's tragedies, Othello tells the story of a Moorish general in command of the armed forces of Venice who earns the enmity of his ensign Iago by passing him over for a promotion. Partly for revenge and partly out of pure evil, Iago plots to convince Othello that Desdemona, his wife, has been unfaithful to him. Iago succeeds in his evil aims only too well, for the enraged Othello murders Desdemona. When Othello later learns of her innocence, he takes his own life. Bleak and unsparing, this play offers a stunning portrait of an arch-villain and an astute psychological study of the nature of evil. Immanuel Kant was one of the most important German philosophers during the Enlightenment, teaching and writing about philosophy and bridging those from the rationalist and empiricist schools of thought. His most famous works discuss metaphysical concepts like morality and reason.
