Philo of Alexandria was a Greek-speaking Jewish philosopher, who is now recognised as the most important representative of Hellenistic Judaism. His writings provide a concise view of the development of Judaism in the Diaspora. His essays seek to synthesise revealed faith and philosophic reason, and Philo is also regarded by Christians as a forerunner of Christian theology.

Product Description
Customer Reviews
John Stuart Mill's book Utilitarianism is a philosophical defense of utilitarianism in ethics. The essay first appeared as a series of three articles published in Fraser's Magazine in 1861; the articles were collected and reprinted as a single book in 1863. It went through four editions during Mill's lifetime with minor additions and revisions.<br /><br />Although Mill includes discussions of utilitarian ethical principles in other works such as On Liberty and The Subjection of Women, Utilitarianism contains Mill's only major discussion of the fundamental grounds for utilitarian ethical theory.

This short essay explores the concept of immortality or indefinite lifespan from a human and technological vantage point. The work is an exploration of several themes intertwined in the greater concepts. It reflects the musings of the Author, and makes no claims to orthodoxy or epistemological rigor. This piece is a brief critique and not a broader manifesto.

<p>Please see the description for this title below. But first...</p><br /><p>Our promise: All of our works are complete and unabridged. As with all our titles, we have endeavoured to bring you modern editions of classic works. This work is not a scan, but is a completely digitized and updated version of the original. Unlike, many other publishers of classic works, our publications are easy to read. You won't find illegible, faded, poor quality photocopies here. Neither will you find poorly done OCR versions of those faded scans either with illegible "words" that contain all kinds of strange characters like £, %, &, etc. Our publications have all been looked over and corrected by the human eye. We can't promise perfection, but we're sure gonna try! Our goal is to bring you high quality Christian publications at rock bottom prices.</p><br /><p>Description:</p><br /><p>I see sometimes in London the preparations being made for the sure foundations of one of the great modern buildings to be erected there. Far below the surface-level men and machines toil patiently on work which soon will be hidden, but which alone will make the towering building secure. These Talks on Moral Foundations take us to that depth below the surface of our everyday life where the foundations are laid for enduring sainthood. They deal profoundly with such matters as Habit, Thinking, the Will, Behaviour. The subject of Christian ethical obligation is of paramount importance in the thought life of to-day. The very basis of our religion, our moral and spiritual standing, is being challenged. Here will be found a valiant answer to the secular, sceptical and lawless questionings of our time.</p><br /><p>The writer was one of God’s saints; and also one of those sane Christian thinkers who see into the deep places of our strange, perplexing yet alluring human life. Already the chapters have proved their worth as articles in the B.T.C Journal. Now in this compact form they will serve for hours of instruction in righteousness as they illumine these dim regions of the soul in the blazing light of Holy Scripture.</p>

Customer Reviews
This is a series of essays by Sir Walter Scott on the subject of the witch-craze, demonology, and other occult topics. It is an early review of the literature that others such as Murray would be analyzing in the next century. Scott has an antiquarian mind, and obviously relishes exposing the reader to the grotesque and the unusual.<br /><br />Scott covers much of the same evidence for the Witch cult as Murry (albeit in a more popular style). Scott draws few conclusions other than that our ancestors were extremely superstitious. <br />

La Religion est hostile à la science et au progrès : cette proposition, qu’on pourrait croire <br />dictée par l’impiété et la haine, est presque un article de foi.<br />Autre chose est de croire, dit un théologien, autre chose de juger ce qui mérite créance : Aliud <br />credere, aliud judicare esse credendum. Il veut dire que le premier est de l’homme, et le second <br />de Dieu ou de l’autorité qu’il a divinement établie pour enseigner les hommes. — Quelle est la <br />règle de la foi ? demande un autre. C’est de s’attacher à ce qui a été cru de tous, partout et <br />toujours : Quod ab omnibus, quod ubique, quod semper...<br /><br />
