The Bonds of Humanity

In this book, Cary J. Nederman presents a persuasive counternarrative to the widely accepted belief in the dominance of Aristotelian thought.

The Bonds of Humanity

Of the great philosophers of pagan antiquity, Marcus Tullius Cicero is the only one whose ideas were continuously accessible to the Christian West following the collapse of the Roman Empire. Yet, in marked contrast with other ancient philosophers, Cicero has largely been written out of the historical narrative on early European political thought, and the reception of his ideas has barely been studied. The Bonds of Humanity corrects this glaring oversight, arguing that the influence of Cicero’s ideas in medieval and early modern Europe was far more pervasive than previously believed. In this book, Cary J. Nederman presents a persuasive counternarrative to the widely accepted belief in the dominance of Aristotelian thought. Surveying the work of a diverse range of thinkers from the twelfth to the sixteenth century, including John of Salisbury, Brunetto Latini, Marsiglio of Padua, Christine de Pizan, and Bartolomé de Las Casas, Nederman shows that these men and women inherited, deployed, and adapted key Ciceronian themes. He argues that the rise of scholastic Aristotelianism in the thirteenth century did not supplant but rather supplemented and bolstered Ciceronian ideas, and he identifies the character and limits of Ciceronianism that distinguish it from other schools of philosophy. Highly original and compelling, this paradigm-shifting book will be greeted enthusiastically by students and scholars of early European political thought and intellectual history, particularly those engaged in the conversation about the role played by ancient and early Christian ideas in shaping the theories of later times.

Challenged Earth  An Overview Of Humanity s Stewardship Of Earth

This timely book provides a comprehensive insight into the challenges facing humanity and Earth in the 21st century. It opens with a discussion of the domination of all the continents and oceans by a growing human population. This is followed by an appraisal of the extent to which water and food supplies will be able to accommodate this population, which may reach eleven billion by 2100. The rapidly increasing ability to change biology and evolution through genomics is considered next and complements a discussion of disease, which is viewed largely as an evolutionary struggle between humanity and pathogens. A seemingly insatiable demand for energy, future energy supplies and the impact of their use on climate and attempts to ameliorate these effects are next examined. The book concludes with a discussion of the partial destruction of the ozone layer and the international effort to repair the damage./a

Human Rights and Humanity   s Rights During Year Three of the French Revolution

This book explores the constitutional debates of the Year 3 of the French Revolution (also known as Year 1 of the French Republic) and the drafts for the Declaration and the Constitution of 1793. It presents the revolutionaries’ distinct view on human rights and the rights of the peoples, as well as their philosophical underpinnings. After discussing how contemporary legal history and theory, and political philosophy approached the revolutionary period, the book tackles the main topics covered during the debates and proposals. Starting with the issue of external relations and the sovereignty of the people and ending with natural rights and Republicanism, this book shows how apparently technical questions (such as what procedure should be implemented to declare a war) are intertwined with philosophical reflections on rights and with problems that were urgent at the time.

Humanity   s Children

This book addresses the phenomenon of children as the particular targets of extreme cruelty and genocide during armed conflict. Selected International Criminal Court cases are analyzed to illustrate the ICC‘s failure to address the genocidal forcible transfer of children to armed State and/or non-State groups or forces perpetrating mass atrocities and/or genocide. An original legal interpretation of children as a protected group in the context of the genocide provision of the Rome Statute is provided. The work also examines certain examples of the various modes in which armed State and/or non-State groups or forces perpetrating mass atrocities and/or genocide appropriate children and accomplish the genocidal forcible transfer of children to the perpetrator group. It is argued that the failure to prosecute the genocidal forcible transfer of children through the ICC mechanisms (where the Court has jurisdiction and the State has failed to meet its obligations in this regard) undermines the perceived gravity of this heinous international crime within the international community. Furthermore, this ICC failure to prosecute conflicts with the interests of justice and ultimately results in an erosion of the respect for the personhood and human dignity of children.

The Solution to All of Humanity s Problems   The Secret to Creating the Life You Want

How did a thirteen-year-old kid manage to retain a Yale University professor’s request to work on the design of a secret invention at a private research facility? ...on his own without anyone helping him? “It was because at age twelve, I applied a simple principle,” says William Eastwood. What William Eastwood discovered in the 1970’s in his youth, YEARS BEFORE Einstein’s friend, David Bohm published “Wholeness and the Implicate Order” in the 1980s, was a secret about the universe. “When the science came out,” Eastwood adds, “I had already been testing it for over five years. By the time I was 22, I owned three large historic homes on the coast of Maine. And I credit the worldview given in this book for all of those achievements.” David Bohm is the physicist who Albert Einstein called “a kindred spirit,” and who’s Ph.D. thesis — being top secret and classified — was awarded at the University of California at Berkeley by no other than Robert Oppenheimer himself. Bohm tells us that the environment around each of us IS A PROJECTION OF OUR MIND, BRAIN AND FIVE SENSES. “Early scientist missed this,” says Eastwood, “and as a result settled on a picture of reality that was missing facts, VERY IMPORTANT FACTS that Bohm discovered. If we apply the science and change our core beliefs in a specific way, we can solve the world’s problems and achieve any goal. That’s why I had to write ‘The Solution...’ “Putin’s terror war against Ukraine, the attack on democracy, crime, social and personal problems alike, all have a simple solution, and I know what it is.” So powerful is Eastwood’s philosophy that the government prevented the publication of this book for over twenty years. It has only recently been made available to the public, and only because Eastwood used the philosophy to overcome the government’s attempts to stop him. Will you give William Eastwood the chance he deserves? In “The Solution...” Eastwood explains exactly what is causing the problems in our world today. He gives you the solution to all of humanity’s problems and then explains exactly how you can create what you want in life. He does so in simple and easy to understand words that anyone can understand. Others have agreed: “We can literally change the course of civilization by lifting the race to a higher path through implementing ‘The Solution...’” says Mario Fusco, TH.D., RS.D, B.S.C....

Stop  Humanity s Roots Live

For nearly eight decades of life, I have not witnessed a single change in the nature of humans but recognize that all humans possess the same cognitive "traits and characteristics" differentiated only by scale or degree. Environment and opportunity influence these (not nature). Briefly, this book was prompted by what I would refer to as the audacity of modernity. That is that is that somehow, modern conveniences including technology has rewarded the current generation superior to all that came before. In this writing, we will see that changing one's circumstances without a change of heart is a fool's errand. "Francesco Sardina has done a masterful job of summarizing and evaluating 6000 years of human history from the Garden of Eden to our world of COVID-19. The book is philosophical and reflective (good for us seniors) and requires us to put on our thinking caps as we read. It's an up-to-date critique of modern day society as well as ancient societies. The author notes that as a pattern nations rise and fall throughout time, and warns us that the US is no exception. In fact he shows that in spite of scientific and technological advances even now the US is showing definite signs of decline. He implies that unless we want to repeat history, we should put our houses in order and return to the basics. We should choose 'truth, goodness and beauty' over 'power mongering, sexual incontinence and treasure hoarding'. Without being pushy, the author recommends that we as a nation return to the 'virtues of honesty and integrity given in the Christian Bible'. The first half of the book covers world history from 4000 BC. The second half begins in 1940 and brings us up to the present. Skillfully woven are comments about the author's own biography. I came away thinking that this book is a must read for all members of our US Congress, as well as for all those of us concerned with the current direction of our nation. I found it rewarding to read and highly recommend it to you." -Dr. Ronald L. Trail "It took me about two months of reading on and off, but I finished reading your book "Stop! Humanity's Roots Live" this afternoon. My daughter Lisa bought a copy from Amazon after I mentioned to her that my best man from 42 years ago was now an accomplished author. She read your book cover-to-cover before leaving it with me as a gift. When I asked her how she liked it, she refused to answer and just said I needed to read it myself and make my own decision unbiased by her opinion. What a read! I must admit that early on, my expectations were mediocre at best. But it took a bit of time for me to be comfortable with your grammar and writing style (which admittedly was a bit above my pay grade). But as I got into the meat of your narrative, I absolutely enjoyed reading your book. I especially enjoyed your discussion about the "makers" and "takers" since I have thought similarly for quite some time. Many of your personal stories were familiar to me, having known you during your transition period from city slicker to farmer and land owner; however, you provided details heretofore unknown to me that occasionally brought a tear to my eye. One such detail involved early struggles with your "affliction," and another being the enduring love, motivation and support from your beautiful wife Connie. The sequence of events expounded upon on a decade-by-decade basis was easy to follow and informative to boot. Harmony ... we could use a bit more of that in our daily lives for sure. Nice job!" -Life-long distant friend, Russ Anderson
