Baruch de Spinoza (1632-1677) war ein niederländischer Philosoph und Sohn portugiesischer Immigranten sephardischer Herkunft und Portugiesisch als Muttersprache. Er wird dem Rationalismus zugeordnet und gilt als einer der Begründer der modernen Bibelkritik. Spinozas Konzept von rationaler Erkenntnis ist von einem ungetrübten, radikalen Optimismus bezüglich der Fähigkeiten des menschlichen Geistes gekennzeichnet. Er meinte, wir könnten nicht nur sämtliche Geheimnisse der Natur klären, sondern auch Gott adäquat erkennen: "Die menschliche Seele hat eine adäquate Erkenntnis der ewigen und unendlichen Wesenheit Gottes."<br />Fritz Mauthner (1849-1923) war ein deutschsprachiger Philosoph und Schriftsteller.

Dieses eBook wurde mit einem funktionalen Layout erstellt und sorgfältig formatiert. Die Ausgabe ist mit interaktiven Inhalt und Begleitinformationen versehen, einfach zu navigieren und gut gegliedert.<br />Joseph Roth (1894-1939) war ein österreichischer Schriftsteller und Journalist. Er war seinen Zeitgenossen in erster Linie als Journalist bekannt. Seine Beiträge erschienen in verschiedenen Zeitungen, darunter der Neuen Berliner Zeitung. 1922 kündigt er die Mitarbeit beim Börsen-Courier auf. Er schreibt: Ich kann wahrhaftig nicht mehr die Rücksichten auf ein bürgerliches Publikum teilen und dessen Sonntagsplauderer bleiben, wenn ich nicht täglich meinen Sozialismus verleugnen will. Vielleicht wäre ich trotzdem schwach genug gewesen, für ein reicheres Gehalt meine Überzeugung zurückzudrängen, oder für eine häufigere Anerkennung meiner Arbeit. Er zeichnete zwar Beiträge für den sozialistischen Vorwärts als Der rote Joseph, war aber sicherlich kein Sozialist, dessen Überzeugungen auf theoretischen Fundamenten ruhten. Vielmehr zeigt er sich in seinen Berichten und Feuilletons als genauer Beobachter, der aus den wahrgenommenen Lebensfragmenten und unmittelbaren Äußerungen menschlichen Unglücks weitreichende Folgerungen betreffend sozialer Missstände und politischer Verhältnisse zieht. Ab 1923 arbeitete er als Feuilletonkorrespondent für die renommierte Frankfurter Zeitung, in der in den folgenden Jahren ein großer Teil seiner journalistischen Arbeiten erscheinen sollte. Allgemein wird bei Roth für die Jahre 1925/1926 eine Wandlung vom Sozialisten zum Monarchisten diagnostiziert. Er bleibt beim Konkreten und erweist sich hier als sehr genauer Beobachter. Am 30. Januar 1933, dem Tag von Hitlers Ernennung zum Reichskanzler, verließ Roth Deutschland. Bald wurden auch seine Bücher verbrannt. Er wählte als Ort seines Exils Paris und begann der Mitarbeit an Exilzeitungen und -zeitschriften.

Die Ausgabe ist mit interaktiven Inhalt und Begleitinformationen versehen, einfach zu navigieren und gut gegliedert.<br />Ottilie Baader (1847-1925) war eine deutsche Frauenrechtlerin und Sozialistin. Neben Clara Zetkin gilt sie als eine der bedeutendsten Kämpferinnen für das Frauenwahlrecht in Deutschland.<br />Aus dem Buch:<br />"Im Anschluß an den Parteitag in Gotha habe ich eine Reihe von Versammlungen in kleinen Thüringer Städtchen abgehalten, die mir einen ganz besonderen Eindruck machten. So kam ich auch nach Waltershausen, wo die Herstellung von Spielwaren als Hausindustrie betrieben wird. Tagsüber scheinen die Straßen des hübschen Städtchens wie ausgestorben, nur hin und wieder sieht man einzelne Frauen, ein Kleines im faltenreichen bunten Kattunmantel auf dem Arm, rasch über die Straße laufen, oder die Hucke auf dem Rücken, um fertige Arbeit abzuliefern. Spielende Kinder sind nicht zu sehen. Die Allerkleinsten sind in der Kinderbewahranstalt, wo sie für 10 Pfennig den Tag über versorgt werden. Aber schon ein, zwei Jahre vor der Schulpflicht beginnt ihre Arbeitszeit. Sie müssen bei der Herstellung von Puppen für glücklichere Kinder helfen. Es war ein trauriger Anblick, eine Anzahl Kinder so still bei der Arbeit sitzen zu sehen. Die Leute haben eine Arbeitsteilung bis ins kleinste hinein vorgenommen, damit eben jedes Kind mithelfen kann, denn das ist einfache Notwendigkeit. Die Frauen, die mich nach der Versammlung baten, sie zu besuchen, haben mir sowohl ihre Arbeit wie ihre Lohnbücher gezeigt. Ich war ja an Löhne gewöhnt, bei denen man knapp das Leben hat, aber hier sträubten sich mir doch die Haare."

Recitate il Rosario tutti i giorni...<br />Pregate, pregate molto e fate sacrifici per i peccatori...<br />Sono la Madonna del Rosario.<br />Solo Io vi potrò soccorrere.<br />Alla fine il Mio Cuore Immacolato trionferà ".<br /><br /><b>La Vergine Maria a Fatima</b><br /><br />La parola Rosario significa "Corona di Rose". Nostra Signora ha rivelato  a molti che ogni volta che si dice una Ave Maria è come se si donasse a Lei una bella rosa e che con ogni Rosario completo Le si dona una corona di rose. La rosa è la regina dei fiori, e così il Rosario è la rosa di tutte le devozioni ed è perciò la più importante.Il Santo Rosario è considerato una preghiera completa perché riporta in sintesi tutta la storia della nostra salvezza. Con il Rosario infatti meditiamo i "misteri" della gioia, del dolore e della gloria di Gesù e Maria. E' una preghiera semplice, umile così come Maria. E' una preghiera che facciamo insieme a Lei, la Madre di Dio, quando con l'Ave Maria La invitiamo a pregare per noi, la Madonna esaudisce sempre la nostra domanda, unisce la sua preghiera alla nostra. Essa diventa perciò sempre più efficace, perché quando Maria domanda sempre ottiene, perché Gesù non può mai dire di no a quanto gli chiede sua Madre.In tutte le apparizioni la Mamma celeste ci ha invitato a recitare il Rosario come arma potente contro il male, per portarci alla vera pace. "La corona del Rosario è come un serto di rose profumate e multicolori ai piedi di Maria". Può sembrare una preghiera ripetitiva ma invece è come due fidanzati che si dicono l'un l'altro tante volte "ti amo"...<br />.<br />:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::<br />.<br /><b>VIA PULCHRITUDINIS ::</b><br /><br />Collana spirituale :: Antologia Cattolica essenziale.<br /><br /><b>A SERVIZIO DELLA TRADIZIONE CATTOLICA DI SEMPRE.</b><br /><br />https://www.facebook.com/Viapulchritudinis.net/<br /><br />https://viapulchritudinisblog.wordpress.com/<br /><br />https://gumroad.com/danka<br /><br />Presente su Amazon<br /><br />Aggiornamento continuo.<br /><br />::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::<br /><br /><b>SlATE I BENVENUTI..</b><br /><br />::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::<br /><br />AD JESUM PER MARIAM<br /><br />::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::<br /><br />L'autore<br />

Dieses eBook wurde mit einem funktionalen Layout erstellt und sorgfältig formatiert. Die Ausgabe ist mit interaktiven Inhalt und Begleitinformationen versehen, einfach zu navigieren und gut gegliedert.<br />Franz Mehring (1846-1919) war ein deutscher Publizist und Politiker. Er war einer der bedeutendsten marxistischen Historiker seiner Zeit und verfasste eine der bekanntesten frühen Biographien zu Karl Marx.<br />Aus dem Buch:<br />"Wie Marx an Heine schrieb, mußte er gleich nach seiner Ankunft in Brüssel auf der Administration de la sûreté publique die Verpflichtung unterzeichnen, nichts über Tagespolitik in Belgien drucken zu lassen. Das konnte er mit ruhigem Gewissen tun, denn er hatte dazu weder die Absicht noch die Möglichkeit. Da jedoch die preußische Regierung fortfuhr, das belgische Ministerium wegen seiner Ausweisung zu behelligen, so nahm Marx noch in demselben Jahre, am 1. Dezember 1845, seine Entlassung aus dem preußischen Staatsverbande. Jedoch hat er weder damals noch später das Bürgerrecht eines fremden Staates angenommen, das ihm im Frühjahr 1848 von der provisorischen Regierung der französischen Republik sogar in ehrenvoller Weise angeboten wurde. Wie Heine, hat sich Marx dazu nicht entschließen können, obgleich Freiligrath, der als kerndeutscher Mann so oft als prunkendes Gegenstück zu den beiden »vaterlandslosen Gesellen" ausgespielt worden ist, durchaus keinen Anstand nahm, sich im Exil als Engländer naturalisieren zu lassen."

<h1>Franklin D. Roosevelt</h1><br /><b>* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *<br /><br />Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.</b><br /><br />One of America’s most influential presidents was a man who could not walk. The polio that struck Franklin Delano Roosevelt when he was a future political star did not diminish him. Instead, against all expectations, it was the agent that forged his destiny. He came from an affluent family; a cousin, Theodore Roosevelt, had been president; another Roosevelt cousin, Eleanor, would become the wife who transformed the role of First Lady into her version of the bully pulpit. However, FDR’s path to politics was far different from the one that Theodore traveled. <br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ The Roosevelt Household: Son, Mother, Wife<br />✓ Politics and Infidelity<br />✓ Roosevelt, the Paraplegic<br />✓ Eleanor, FDR's Cousin and First Lady<br />✓ The United States Enters War<br />✓ The Death of the Longest Serving President<br /><b>And much more!</b><br /><br />The pampered son of an elderly father and the strong-willed Sara Delano Roosevelt showed no particular acumen in his youth. FDR was not a scholar or an athlete of great renown. His romantic endeavors were awkward. What, then, created the dynamic leader who inspired a nation to believe in itself when it was reeling from the Great Depression and the shadow of war across the ocean? <br />Perhaps it was adversity itself that transformed the golden boy into the tested president who vowed that America would not fall, that the economy would recover, that liberty would triumph over oppression. He had seen in his own life how, deprived of the use of his legs, he was nonetheless able to mobilize a nation by his energetic example. <br />It’s true that Franklin Delano Roosevelt could not walk. But it was because of him that the United States of America was able, in the tumultuous years of the Great Depression and World War II, to remain standing when nations all around the world were falling.

The United States is the land of opportunity, and this was no truer than during the late-Colonial phase in North America. The men and women who came to the 13 colonies worked for everything they had and eventually broke away from the British when the colonists grew unhappy with the governance. Without the “Founding Fathers,” this would not have been possible; the men who declared independence, ran the war effort, and created the government were exceptional individuals. Many of the “Founding Fathers” were self-made men who rose through the ranks and made something out of themselves during the Revolution. Some had nothing to lose when they declared their independence, but others had everything to lose, and George Washington risked it all to gain the mantle of “Father of America” with his successes. <br /><br />Today, his legacy is mythologized so often that it’s hard to ascertain the truth from the fairy tales. With such a renowned figure as Washington, it is important for historians and those interested in history to dig deeper and actually understand the man. Washington was not perfect; he was known to have a terrifying temper during the war that left many of his subordinates genuinely scared of the man. Washington did more than any other man to ensure the success of the American Revolution and the safe passage of the new United States from fledgling nation to budding power, but underneath his steel surface burned an almost insatiable political ambition, and a man who was acutely self-conscious of himself.<br /><br />Washington had other foibles, but that is also partly what makes him great A genuine measure of a great man is not the fact that they are “perfect,” but the fact that they can overcome or even utilize their negative personality traits to their advantage. Washington had a knack for doing just that. Everyone in the colonies and the world realized that Washington, at the head of the last army standing in the colonies, could have made himself king of the new United States on the spot, and it would have been a move supported by his rank and file soldiers. Instead, Washington became the first Westerner to voluntarily demobilize his army, ensuring civilian control of the new nation. King George III called Washington “the greatest character of the age” for making that decision. <br /><br /> History in 30: The Life of George Washington provides a quick but comprehensive look at the life of the first president.

<h1>Queen Victoria</h1><br />The Queen of Great Britain and Ireland for 63 years, the mother of nine children and grandmother to 42, Queen Victoria’s life was one of magnificent proportions. Victoria’s childhood was difficult and lonely but from the time she took the throne aged just eighteen she blossomed into a powerful woman, both frivolous and formidable.<br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ An Unsentimental Marriage<br />✓ Race to Produce an Heir<br />✓ Finally an Adult and Finally a Queen<br />✓ V&A<br />✓ Die Shattenseite<br />✓ The Hungry Forties and Albert’s Great Exhibition<br />✓ The Widow at Windsor<br /><b>And much more!</b><br /><br />In her later years, Victoria struggled to find balance between her wish to live a very private life as a widow and her duty to live the very public life of a Queen and later Empress. The world Victoria was born into was a very different world to that which she left behind and her life story is an incredible journey from infant heir to matriarchal Queen and Empress.
