The republic by Plato( Book )

88 editions published between 1952 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plato's Republic is widely acknowledged as the cornerstone of Western philosophy. Presented in the form of a dialogue between Socrates and three different interlocutors, it is an inquiry into the notion of a perfect community and the ideal individual within it. During the conversation other questions are raised: what is goodness; what is reality ; what is knowledge? The Republic also addresses the purpose of education and the roles of both women and men as 'guardians' of the people. With remarkable lucidity and deft use of allegory, Plato arrives at a depiction of a state bound by harmony and ruled by 'philosopher kings'"--Page 4 of cover
Meteorologica by Aristotle( Book )

85 editions published between 1952 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristotle, great Greek philosopher, researcher, reasoner, and writer, born at Stagirus in 384 B.C., was a son of a medical doctor Nicomachus and Phaestis. He studied under Plato at Athens and taught there 367-347; spent three years at the court of a former pupil Hermeias in Asia Minor and married Pythias a relation of his; after some time at Mitylene, in 343-2 he was appointed by King Philip of Macedon to be tutor of his teen-aged son Alexander, and had other students. After Philip's death in 336, Aristotle became head of his own school (of Peripatetics), the Lyceum at Athens. Because of anti-Macedonian feeling there after Alexander's death in 323, he withdrew to Chalcis in Euboea, where he died in 322. Nearly all the works he prepared for publication are lost, the priceless ones extant being lecture-materials, notes, and memoranda (some are spurious). I Practical. Nicomachean Ethics; Great Ethics (Magna Moralia); Eudemian Ethics; Politics; Economics (on the good of the family); On Virtues and Vices. II Logical: Categories; Analytics (Prior and Posterior); Interpretation; Refutations used by Sophists; Topica. III Physical: Twenty-six works (some suspect) including astronomy, generation and destruction, the senses, memory, sleep, dreams, life, facts about animals, etc. IV Metaphysics: on being as being. V Art: Rhetoric and Poetics. VI Other works including the Constitution of Athens; more works also of doubtful authorship. VII Fragments of various works such as dialogues on philosophy and literature; and of treatises on rhetoric, politics and metaphysics."--Jacket

Timaeus and Critias by Plato( Book )

28 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Timaeus-Critias is a Platonic treatise in two parts. A response to an account of an ideal state told by Socrates, it begins with Timaeus' theoretical exposition of the cosmos and his story describing the creation of the universe, from its very beginning to the coming into being of man. Timaeus introduces the idea of a creator God and expounds the structure and composition of the physical world. The Critias, the second part of Plato's work, comprises an account of the rise and fall of Atlantis, an ancient, mighty, and prosperous empire ruled by the descendants of Poseidon, which ultimately sank into the sea. A key Platonic text, the Timaeus-Critias formed a central basis of Western thought and influenced subsequent philosophical doctrine." "In his introduction, T.K. Johansen discusses how the Timaeus-Critias relates to Plato's work and ancient thought, and explores the main themes of the dialogue. This edition includes explanatory illustrations, further reading and notes on the text."--Jacket

The Mt. Kembla disaster by Stuart Piggin( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On 31 July 1902 the Mt Kembla coal mine in New South Wales exploded, killing ninety-six men. It is the worst disaster to occur on land in Australia's history."--BOOK JACKET. "The explosion took place during a time of social and industrial upheaval, when safety issues had become a bargaining point between management and miners. The New South Wales coal industry was slowly emerging from the 1890s depression, and the miners were testing their industrial strength in the Arbitration Court."--BOOK JACKET. "The Mt Kembla Disaster is a rich social history which traces the events, from the decades leading up to the blast, the frenetic rescue operation and mass funerals, through the series of acrimonious legal inquiries, to the divisive relief effort and the continued commemoration of the disaster by the community of Mt Kembla."--BOOK JACKET. "Stuart Piggin and Henry Lee examine the disaster within the broader context of the social, political and industrial systems in which it was set. They conclude that, contrary to the common view that such catastrophes can force positive change within these systems, the Mt Kembla disaster had little long-term effect. The local community compensated for this inertia with an intense internalisation of the trauma."--BOOK JACKET

Christianity in education by F. H Hilliard( Book )

4 editions published between 1966 and 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Christian churches have frequently pioneered educational advances -- from the seventh century down to the nineteenth. Schools, universities and colleges of education stand as tangible evidence of these efforts. Do all these ventures belong merely to educational history -- relics of the days when Christianity was influential enough to play a leading part in education? Or has Christianity still a distinctive contribution to make to educational thought and practice? The educationalists who contributed to the Hibbert Lectures of 1965 are convinced that it has. They examine the nature of this c
