Lapierre, Michael J. 1999 0-7734-7888-4 132 pages This study deals with the place Vasquez gives to the objective concept in its relation to the external word (speech), to truth (judgment), to knowledge (human cognition), and to being (reality). The crux of the matter lies in the relation which the objective concept of a thing has to the thing in itself. His teaching of the objective concept was opposed by his contemporary, John of St. Thomas. In this century, Jacques Maritain in his work Reflexions sur l’intelligence et sa vie propre, sees it as the source of the idealism of succeeding eras.
“There are hardly any English publications on Vasquez to date. Prof. Lapierre’s work is filling a gap; therefore, it is a must for any library in the English speaking world interested in medieval studies.” – Tibor Horvath
Shein, Louis J. 1991 1-4955-0930-3 120 pages Lev Shestov is a strange and, in many respects, unique phenomenon in the history of Russian and philosophic thought. His approach to philosophical problems was so different from the traditional that it created difficulties in assimilating the essence of his thought. This is an attempt to clarify Shestov's work. The sudden death of Dr. Louis J.Shein prevented the completion of this work, but the editors of the Edwin Mellen Press decided that despite the unfinished nature of the manuscript, its contribution to scholarship renders it worthy of publication as Shein left it, with only minor editing adjustments.
Richardson, Herbert W. 2010 0-7734-1424-X 48 pages To the Reader:
This commentary aims to provide a basic grammar of Christian religious discourse. It proposes definitions, correlations, and guidelines that help us to read the Bible as a cosmic myth.
The Apostles Creed presents a vision that goes far beyond everything that we can describe scientifically. In the literary sense, the Creed presents the elements of an "extreme epic" that outruns the imagination of even our greatest poets: Dante, Goethe, Milton.
The Creed expresses the belief that God--the Creative Life Force driving all things--is Self-sacrificing Love.
Thius Self-sacrificing Love finds its concrete metaphor in the life, death, resurrection, and second coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Kone, Drissa 2019 1-4955-0728-9 116 pages Conflict has always been an integral part of human condition. Any attempt to completely eradicate conflict between people sounds like a utopia. Paradoxically, the pursue of a world of peace and harmony has always been an ideal. This book offers a solution to the fundamental question of the unending conflict between people. Addressing conflict at its roots, through a self-transformative approach could be more effective in making the world a better place. There is no unity in resentment, no forgiveness in revenge and no peace in War. In this contemporary complex and diverse world, a collective responsibility is required to engrave in human consciousness the greatest values of Unity, Forgiveness and Peace.
2018 1-4955-0639-8 664 pages This book argues that the premises of the Republic and of Job are fundamentally the same and therefore deserve comparison. Their similarities derive from the premise of testing the just man by subjecting him to extreme injustice. The fundamental conclusion of the book is that both Job and the Republic teach that the foundation of innocence and therefore legal procedure lies in an eternal, beneficent creator. They differ when Job draws the further conclusion that both beneficent creation and wronged innocence require human rule over creation.
