Aristotle (384–322 BCE) was a Greek philosopher and student of Plato who stunningly changed the course of Western philosophy. He has gone down in history as one of the greatest philosophers of all time. Cicero, the Roman statesman and philosopher, once called his writing style "a river of gold;" and his scope of thought and subsequent influence on the study of science, logic, philosophical discourse, and theology has led many to dub him "The Philosopher."<br /><br />Contents:<br /><br />Part 1: Logic (Organon)<br />Categories, translated by E.

Customer Reviews
O acordo de leniência, como instrumento de apuração de ilícitos, foi previsto pela Lei 12.846/2013, conhecida também como Lei Anticorrupção (LAC).<br /><br />Esse diploma veio inaugurar, no ordenamento pátrio, a possibilidade de responsabilização administrativa e civil de pessoas jurídicas pela prática de atos lesivos contra a Administração Pública nacional e estrangeira.<br /><br />Com sua promulgação, o Estado passou a deter meios de sancionar pessoas jurídicas de forma efetiva. <br /><br />Anteriormente, a ação estatal ficava restrita à punição das pessoas naturais que agiam em nome das empresas ou, ainda, à aplicação de sanções judiciais ou administrativas de fundo contratual ou regulatório. <br /><br />Este livro é fruto da reflexão de quem teve a oportunidade de trabalhar diretamente com a matéria e, posteriormente, distanciar-se dos acontecimentos para, livres de qualquer compromisso, avaliar criticamente todos os aspectos inerentes ao acordo de leniência inclusive aqueles que ajudamos a construir sob o ponto de vista exclusivamente técnico. Assim, foram inevitáveis as inúmeras referências aos diversos doutrinadores e juristas em quem nos baseamos. <br /><br />Por fim, o maior desejo com esta obra é que ela se torne uma contribuição para todos os agentes públicos, advogados e operadores do direito em geral, que continuarão a enfrentar os desafios da implementação.

Over the past 20 years, cognitive neuroscience has revolutionized our ability to understand the nature of human thought. Working with the understandings of traditional psychology, the new brain science is transforming many disciplines, from economics to literary theory. These developments are now affecting the law and there is an upsurge of interest in the potential of neuroscience to contribute to our understanding of criminal and civil law and our system of justice in general. The international and interdisciplinary chapters in this volume are written by experts in criminal behaviour, civil law and jurisprudence. They concentrate on the potential of neuroscience to increase our understanding of blame and responsibility in such areas as juveniles and the death penalty, evidence and procedure, neurological enhancement and treatment, property, end-of-life choices, contracting and the effects of words and pictures in law. This collection suggests that legal scholarship and practice will be increasingly enriched by an interdisciplinary study of law, mind and brain and is a valuable addition to the emerging field of neurolaw.

Quarterly taxes were due in two weeks, and payday was in three days. <br /><br />She was there again. No matter how many hours she worked, what a great job she did, how many practice management CLE’s she went to, she was always one or two clients a month away from making the money she should be making. She didn’t become a lawyer to make millions each year, but she shouldn’t be struggling. <br /><br />What the hell was she doing wrong?<br /><br />She was tired. Tired of spending time billing, reviewing statements, and cutting her time only to have her clients not pay her.<br /><br />There had to be a better way – right?<br /><br />If this sounds familiar, The Happier Attorney is the book for you. You will learn the step by step process that has helped other attorneys, just like you, to successfully move from hourly fees to flat fees and to create a far happier, simpler and more successful practice.
Wounded Charity: Lessons Learned from the Wounded Warrior Project...

Wounded Charity offers valuable insights into how charities respond to crises based on information no one else has ever covered: documentation from the charity during and after the crisis, as well as candid discussions and interviews with some former members of the charity’s board, executive staff, beneficiaries, and even those who generated or published damaging information. On its primary, story-telling level, Wounded Charity investigates the effort to marginalize one of America’s most vital charities. Its broader level is about what it means for all charities. Wounded Warrior Project is large, important, and effective, and it serves wounded veterans in ways that other charities cannot and that the government does not, and probably never will. This cautionary, provocative narrative describes how WWP came to be so heavily criticized, why much of the criticism was unfounded, why those ultimately in charge of the charity – the board members – failed to do their job, and how individuals and the media need to revise their thinking about what works and what doesn’t work in a sector of our society whose tangible accomplishments, despite steadily increasing philanthropic support, largely remain a mystery. It is also a story of leadership, and the discordancy of punishing, as opposed to rewarding, good ideas and effective management.<br /><br />"Doug White provides an unbiased explanation of the wrongful injury of WWP. Perception is in the eye of the beholder—and unfortunately, the vast majority of the beholders were on a search-and-destroy mission to take down Al Giordano and Steve Nardizzi. Regrettably, in doing so they succeeded in afflicting collateral damage to countless wounded warriors and their families. I genuinely wish the new regime of WWP Godspeed and success. They have big shoes to fill." —John Loosen Former Member of the Board of Wounded Warrior Project<br /><br />“Wounded Charity is a cautionary tale for philanthropists, nonprofit board members, and nonprofit leaders to make sure they make decisions based on the facts, not media hype. Otherwise, the people who end up paying the price are the very people the charity is supposed to help.”—Jim Knotts President/CEO, Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, Former President/CEO, Operation Homefront<br /><br />"False accusations are not new, but they appear to be more and more common today. It's shameful when good people’s lives are so easily tarnished by the jealousy and ambitions of others. This book sheds light into the great injustice served upon Steve Nardizzi and Al Giordano. Two very good men."—Matthew Modine, Actor and Veterans’ Supporter
