De la nature de la morale. Elle fait partie de la politique. — Il faut étudier la vertu surtout à un point de vue <br />pratique, afin de la connaître et de l’acquérir. — Travaux antérieurs : Pythagore, Socrate, Platon ; défauts de <br />leurs théories. L’auteur essaiera de les compléter. — Principes généraux sur le bien. La politique qui est le premier <br />des arts, doit étudier le bien applicable à l’homme. De l’idée du bien. Du bien réel et commun dans les choses. — Rôle <br />de la définition et de l’induction dans cette étude. — La politique et la morale n’ont point à s’occuper de l’idée <br />absolue du bien : le bien est dans toutes les catégories, et chaque bien spécial est l’objet d’un art spécial. — Erreur <br />de Socrate qui prenait la vertu pour une science...

Vers l’an sept cent vingt-deux de la fondation de la ville, on reprit, à Rome, l’usage d’obéir entièrement à <br />un seul chef. Octavien, fils d’Octavius, et adopté par César, son grand-oncle ; Octavien, qu’un sénatus-consulte <br />surnomma bientôt Auguste, cause de sa clémence après la victoire dans une guerre civile, gagna d’abord les <br />soldats par ses largesses, le peuple par l’espoir des distributions de vivres, et soumit ensuite sans peine les <br />autres citoyens. Il exerça ainsi le pouvoir pendant près de quarante-quatre ans, et mourut de maladie à Nole, après <br />avoir ajouté à l’empire la Rhétie et l’Illyrie, et dompté la fougue indomptable des nations étrangères, à l’exception <br />de la Germanie. Cependant, vainqueur d’Antoine, il fut le troisième, depuis Numa, qui ait fermé le temple de Janus, <br />coutume observée chez les Romains lorsque les guerres laissaient quelque repos à la république. Auguste était populaire <br />et enjoué, mais trop passionné pour l’excès des plaisirs, pour les jeux et pour l’intempérance, qui te provoquait au <br />sommeil...

I. Miltiade, fils de Cimon, né à Athènes, l’emportait sur tous ses concitoyens par l’ancienneté de sa race, par la <br />gloire de ses ancêtres, par sa modestie, et se trouvait à cet âge où l’on pouvait déjà non seulement fonder sur lui <br />de grandes espérances, mais compter qu’il deviendrait tel qu’on le vit plus tard, lorsque les Athéniens résolurent <br />d’envoyer une colonie dans la Chersonèse. Comme le nombre des colons était considérable, et que beaucoup d’Athéniens <br />demandaient à faire partie de l’expédition, des députés pris parmi eux furent envoyés à Delphes pour consulter Apollon <br />sur le choix d’un chef ; car les Thraces occupaient alors ces contrées, et il fallait les leur disputer les armes à la <br />main. La Pythie enjoignit expressément à ceux qui l’interrogeaient de prendre Miltiade pour chef, ajoutant que, s’ils <br />suivaient ce conseil, ils réussiraient dans leur entreprise. Sur cette réponse de l’oracle, Miltiade s’embarqua pour la <br />Chersonèse à la tête d’une troupe d’élite. Il aborda à Lemnos, voulut soumettre les habitants de cette île à la domination <br />d’Athènes, et les sollicita de se ranger volontairement à l’obéissance ; mais les Lemniens lui répondirent en plaisantant <br />qu’ils se soumettraient lorsqu’il viendrait de chez lui avec une flotte, poussé par le vent Aquilon : car ce vent, qui <br />souffle du nord, est contraire aux vaisseaux qui vont d’Athènes à Lemnos. Miltiade, qui n’avait pas le temps de s’arrêter, <br />continua sa route vers le but qu’il s’était proposé, et arriva dans la Chersonèse...<br />

<DIV><B>An account of all the new and surprising evidence now available for the beginnings of the earliest civilizations that contradict the standard narrative</B><BR /><BR /> Why did humans abandon hunting and gathering for sedentary communities dependent on livestock and cereal grains, and governed by precursors of today’s states? Most people believe that plant and animal domestication allowed humans, finally, to settle down and form agricultural villages, towns, and states, which made possible civilization, law, public order, and a presumably secure way of living. But archaeological and historical evidence challenges this narrative. The first agrarian states, says James C. Scott, were born of accumulations of domestications: first fire, then plants, livestock, subjects of the state, captives, and finally women in the patriarchal family—all of which can be viewed as a way of gaining control over reproduction.<BR /><BR /> Scott explores why we avoided sedentism and plow agriculture, the advantages of mobile subsistence, the unforeseeable disease epidemics arising from crowding plants, animals, and grain, and why all early states are based on millets and cereal grains and unfree labor. He also discusses the “barbarians” who long evaded state control, as a way of understanding continuing tension between states and nonsubject peoples.</DIV>

<b></b><h2><b>Louis Duchesne’s <em>Early History of the Christian Church</em> is a classic and seminal account covering the years from the founding of Christianity to the end of the fifth century. </b></h2><br /><br />This is the first volume of a three piece work regarded as one of the most important records of the beginning of the Christian Church, serving as a standard introduction to the Church’s history for many years. This volume spans the time from the founding of the Church to the end of the third century. <br /><br />Duchesne covers the Church’s dealings with the Roman Empire and its various emperors, the relationship between Judaism and Christianity, the Paschal Controversy and the spread of the religion to the east and into Africa. <br /><br />Condemned by the Church in 1912 for being too “Modernist”, Duchesne’s work was reinstalled into Church history by Pope Paul VI in 1966 and remains one of the preeminent sources for early Christian scholars. <br /><br /><b>Orthodox Catholic historian Warren H. Carroll, the late founder of Christendom College, lauded the work as “excellent and thorough". </b><br /><br />Louis Duchesne (1843-1922) was a French church historian of first rank. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1887 and completed his theological studies at Rome. His interest in the history of the early church was intensified by his travels in Greece and Asia Minor. He became a professor of ecclesiastical history at the Institut Catholique in Paris in 1885. In 1895 he was nominated director of the French School at Rome, a position he held until his death. He was elected a member of the French Academy in 1910. He died in 1922, in Rome, and is buried in the cemetery of Saint-Servan.<br /><br /><br />
