Challenging religion : essays in honour of Eileen Barker by James A Beckford( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last half century new religious movements or cults of one sort and another have mushroomed throughout the US and Europe. Increasingly these groups have been met with attempts to monitor and control them on the part of the state, and concerns about the protection of religious 'consumers' have been set against the democratic right to religious freedom. In this collection, leading sociologists of religion from the UK, US and across Europe, reflect on the important work of Eileen Barker in this field, and debate the political, practical and ethical issues which arise from these changes in the religious landscape. Contributions also attempt to make sense of the elusive social dimensions of religion, in addition to presenting challenges to religion in the form of questioning ideas and practices that may be taken for granted in some religious circles

The political thought of Plato and Aristotle by Ernest Barker( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This clear and accurate exposition of Greek political thought offers a comprehensive exploration of the works of Plato and Aristotle. Students of political science and the history of Western philosophy will appreciate its insights into the sources of state power, the nature of political organization, the aims of the state, citizenship, justice, law, and related concepts. In addition to point-by-point discussions of Plato's Republic and Aristotle's Politics, this survey presents critical examinations of several of Plato's other dialogues along with Aristotle's Ethics. Further, it considers the origin of these ideas in the Greek political experience and in the contributions of other Greek theorists, including Heraclitus, Pythagoras, the Cyrenaics, and the Encyclopaedists. This classic of scholarship also includes epilogues that discuss the influence of Greek political ideas on such thinkers as Aquinas, Marsilio of Padua, Machiavelli, Spinoza, Hobbes, Rousseau, and Hegel
