Éthique à Nicomaque - Aristote Preview:

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie d'Aristote. L'"Éthique à Nicomaque", composé de dix livres, est l'un des principaux ouvrages exposant la philosophie morale d'Aristote, laquelle demeure en substance la plus significative expression de la morale grecque. Nicomaque, fils d'Aristote, lui donne son nom en tant que premier éditeur des manuscrits. Critiquant la conception platonicienne des Idées, qui préconise le "bien en soi", Aristote traite ici de ce qui doit selon lui guider l'homme dans toutes ses actions, à savoir le bonheur, sens ultime de la vie humaine. Le bonheur, dit-il, est l'exercice de cette activité propre à l'homme qu'est l'usage du "logos" (la raison, l'intelligence), mais sans toutefois exclure la jouissance des plaisirs sensibles. Sur cette base, il développe une théorie des vertus humaines qu'il divise en vertus dianoétiques, relevant de la partie intellectuelle de l'âme, et vertus éthiques, relevant plus du caractère et des sentiments. La vertu aristotélicienne, caractérisée par un juste milieu entre les passions et facultés opposées de l'âme, concilie ainsi tout à la fois des exigences spiritualistes et eudémonistes. Le philosophe considère aussi la vertu comme un fait composé de deux éléments: l'un volontaire, déterminant le but, l'autre intellectuel, donnant les moyens pour atteindre ce but. Le livre 3 est consacré à définir ce qu'il y a de volontaire et d'involontaire dans l'action de l'homme, rejetant la thèse selon laquelle "personne n'est volontairement mauvais" et concluant que la vertu comme le vice résident en notre seul pouvoir. Dans les livres 4, 5 et 6, il décrit des vertus éthiques particulières comme la douceur, la franchise, l'urbanité, la pudeur, le courage, etc., examinant particulièrement la justice et l'équité, puis étudie les vertus dianoéthiques, au nombre de cinq: la science, l'art, la prudence, l'intellect et la sagesse. Le livre 7 traite de l'intempérance et du plaisir, les livres 8 et 9 de l'amitié et de l'amour, désignés sous le même nom. Le livre 10 reprend enfin le problème du rapport entre le plaisir et la vertu, et conclut que le plaisir procède d'une perfection de l'acte, survenant "comme la beauté pour qui est dans la fleur de l'âge". Le bonheur suprême réside dans la pure contemplation de la vérité éternelle. L'"Éthique à Nicomaque" est une continuelle oscillation entre l'eudémonisme humaniste et l'intellectualisme éthique..

Topographie religieuse de Thugga (Dougga) - Sophie Saint-Amans Preview:

Ville d’origine libyque, un temps annexée au territoire de Carthage punique, Thugga fut englobée à l’Africa Nova en 46 a.C. La cité s’élève sur le flanc d’une colline, dominant l’antique voie de Carthage à Theveste, qui était le nerf commercial et stratégique de la province. Les sources archéologiques et épigraphiques relatives à la vie religieuse couvrent une période qui s’étend du règne de Massinissa à celui de Dioclétien. Vingt-trois lieux de culte, sanctuaires dits africains, temples italiques et simples chapelles, ont été reconnus dans la ville. Cent vingt-trois inscriptions religieuses livrent les noms de nombreux dieux d’origine romaine et locale. L’élément marquant du développement de la ville fut la coexistence, pendant deux siècles, d’une majorité de pérégrins, les Thuggenses, et d’une minorité de citoyens de Carthage, les pagani. Ils ne partagèrent longtemps ni les mêmes institutions, ni le même panthéon et l’évolution des rapports juridiques et culturels entre ces deux communautés trouva son expression dans le choix des cultes qu’elles honoraient publiquement et dans l’aménagement religieux de leurs territoires respectifs..

Ce court essai, dont le titre original est On bullshit, a toutes les apparences du sérieux, bien qu’il s’agisse d’une théorisation de ce que l’on appelle communément le baratin ou les conneries. L’un des plus grands philosophes américains, Harry Gordon Frankfurt (né en 1929), professeur émérite à Princeton, se penche sur le sujet : un petit livre de référence pour ne plus jamais confondre connerie avec fumisterie, foutaise, baliverne ou sornette, et repérer à coup sûr tous les baratineurs..

Careless Whispers - Synithia Williams Preview:

She’s falling in love with the one man she can’t trust… Elaina Robidoux knows how people view her: coldhearted, ambitious, ruthless. But it doesn’t matter. Running the family business is all she’s ever wanted and she’s so close she can almost taste it…until her father fires her and hires her nemesis—arrogant, unflappable Alex Tyson. Elaina may be hurt but she refuses to be defeated, so she throws herself into creating a business of her own. But she never dreamed that to close her first deal, she’d need Alex’s help… Alex understands the power of a family legacy better than most and the last thing he wanted was to take that from Elaina. Her beauty and fierce strength are undeniable, but there’s a softer side that no one but him seems to see. She’s been taught that emotions are a liability, yet one impulsive kiss starts a chain reaction that neither of them wants to stop. But can love ignite—and survive—when secrets and loyalties collide? “[An] exceptional tale of forbidden love.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Forbidden Promises Praise for Synithia Williams’s Jackson Falls series “Williams (His Pick for Passion) makes waves with this exceptional tale of forbidden love.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Forbidden Promises “A romance for readers looking for equal parts passion and family drama.” —Kirkus Reviews on Forbidden Promises “Politics, passion, and family drama combine to make a deliciously soapy second-chance, brother’s-best-friend romance.

For Love or Money - Nancy Folbre Preview:

As women moved into the formal labor force in large numbers over the last forty years, care work – traditionally provided primarily by women – has increasingly shifted from the family arena to the market. Child care, elder care, care for the disabled, and home care now account for a growing segment of low-wage work in the United States, and demand for such work will only increase as the baby boom generation ages. But the expanding market provision of care has created new economic anxieties and raised pointed questions: Why do women continue to do most care work, both paid and unpaid? Why does care work remain low paid when the quality of care is so highly valued? How effective and equitable are public policies toward dependents in the United States? In For Love and Money, an interdisciplinary team of experts explores the theoretical dilemmas of care provision and provides an unprecedented empirical overview of the looming problems for the care sector in the United States. Drawing on diverse disciplines and areas of expertise, For Love and Money develops an innovative framework to analyze existing care policies and suggest potential directions for care policy and future research. Contributors Paula England, Nancy Folbre, and Carrie Leana explore the range of motivations for caregiving, such as familial responsibility or limited job prospects, and why both love and money can be efficient motivators. They also examine why women tend to specialize in the provision of care, citing factors like job discrimination, social pressure, or the personal motivation to provide care reported by many women. Suzanne Bianchi, Nancy Folbre, and Douglas Wolf estimate how much unpaid care is being provided in the United States and show that low-income families rely more on unpaid family members for their child and for elder care than do affluent families. With low wages and little savings, these families often find it difficult to provide care and earn enough money to stay afloat. Candace Howes, Carrie Leana and Kristin Smith investigate the dynamics within the paid care sector and find problematic wages and working conditions, including high turnover, inadequate training and a “pay penalty” for workers who enter care jobs. These conditions have consequences: poor job quality in child care and adult care also leads to poor care quality. In their chapters, Janet Gornick, Candace Howes and Laura Braslow provide a systematic inventory of public policies that directly shape the provision of care for children or for adults who need personal assistance, such as family leave, child care tax credits and Medicaid-funded long-term care. They conclude that income and variations in states’ policies are the greatest factors determining how well, and for whom, the current system works. Despite the demand for care work, very little public policy attention has been devoted to it. Only three states, for example, have enacted paid family leave programs. Paid or unpaid, care costs those who provide it. At the heart of For Love and Money is the understanding that the quality of care work in the United States matters not only for those who receive care but also for society at large, which benefits from the nurturance and maintenance of human capabilities. As care work gravitates from the family to the formal economy, this volume clarifies the pressing need for America to fundamentally rethink its care policies and increase public investment in this increasingly crucial sector..

Working on a Dream - David Masciotra Preview:

For almost four decades, Bruce Springsteen's music has directly inspired, influenced, and uplifted millions of devoted fans, who hold a special place in their hearts and minds for his work. Springsteen's rise to the top of American music coincided with the triumph of American conservatism, and the veneration of marketplace values above democratic principles and humanistic priorities. Springsteen has consistently summoned his creative power and artistic vision to indict these political developments and demand the cultivation of a more compassionate and progressive society. And yet his often harsh critique of the status quo and radical ideas for reform have either been ignored or misunderstood, as a result of his "All American" image and his narrative storytelling style. On nearly every major issue-poverty, racism, urban decay, war, and peace- Springsteen's music has offered a unique vision for moving forward with the agenda of creating the "country we carry in our hearts"-as he called it in an op-ed for the New York Times. Filled with provocative analysis of Springsteen's best known hits and his most obscure songs, comparisons to other important works of American culture-ranging from The Sopranos to Edward Hopper-and a wealth of information about the last fifty years of American politics, culture, and society, Working On a Dream is a powerful and engaging study of this songwriter and performer's art. David Masciotra shows how Springsteen's music darkly comments on the increased isolation of Americans, and calls for a return to community living and values, based on compassion, empathy, and tolerance. He illustrates how Springsteen has forced listeners to wrestle with the facts of rising poverty rates in the world's richest nation, of wars with questionable justification, and of the continued mistreatment of racial minorities, arguing that Springsteen does this by emphasizing the suffering that everyday people - usually ignored in mainline political discussions - endure on a daily basis. By using Springsteen's life and music to shine a light on the dark recesses of America's most important political and social trials and conflicts- race, religion, and working class hardship-Working on a Dream connects readers with the power, purpose, and promise of Springsteen's extraordinary and enduring music..
