Rome and Judaea in transition by Christopher Joseph Seeman( Archival Material )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Political relations between the Roman Republic and the Hasmonaean dynasty of Judaea form an essential backdrop to the study of Second Temple Judaism. From its inception in 164 BC through the deposition of Antigonos in 37 BC, Rome's involvement in Judaean affairs underwent several dramatic changes, culminating in the Senate's eventual abandonment of the Hasmonaean house in favor of Herod the Great. Explanation of Roman policy toward Judaea requires analysis of two often neglected factors: (1) the larger political and military context in which Rome's representatives operated during this period, and (2) the role played by Jewish initiative in shaping Roman decisions concerning the region. Examination of the literary and documentary evidence reveals that major shifts in the Republic's relationship to Judaea were significantly influenced by these factors. The engulfment of the Near East by the convulsions of Rome's civil war in particular altered the circumstances on which Roman policy toward Judaea was based
Terror in the mind of God ( visu )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Professor Mark Juergensmeyer talks about his latest book: Terror in the mind of God: the global rise of religious violence. In light of the September 11th acts of terrorism, he discusses how religion has formed the new moral basis for politics and the taking up of arms. He describes the rise of the Taliban as an effect of the collapse in faith in secular religion and the rise in new forms of religious nationalism
A study on the origin and significance of Borodudur by Hudaya Kandahjaya( Archival Material )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
To date there has been no solid answer yet to many fundamental problems of Borobudur. We still do not know what Borobudur is, why the builders built it, nor even the meaning of its name. Conclusive support for any particular interpretation is still to be found. In the past the most frequent method for understanding Borobudur has been to examine the reliefs and their symbolism, and on that basis to identify a text or set of texts as the source for the construction of the monument. On the basis of such an approach, scholars have debated whether Borobudur is a memorial (stūpa) or a diagram of the cosmos (mandala). Such speculations, however, have failed for two reasons. First, they fail to take into account an epigraphic record known as the Kayumwungan inscription from central Java dated to 824. This inscription, when read correctly, turns out to memorialize the consecration of Borobudur, and when taken together with other related textual sources, such as the Lalitavistara-sūtra , and the Bhadracarī, provides significant information regarding the origin of Borobudur. Second, scholars have assumed a single textual source, but, even when symbolic references from several texts have been cited, these sources do not explain the architectural model that inspired the monument's construction. Hence, establishing the architectural model for the monument as a whole must take priority over the question of the textual sources of the narrative reliefs or the specific symbolism of the monument's decorations

The is-ought problem and Catholic natural law by Brian Patrick Green( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
What is the proper relationship of the natural world and the moral world? Are they completely disconnected from each other or is nature in some way morally significant? In the 18th century the philosopher David Hume proposed what has come to be known as Hume's Law, which states that one "cannot get an 'ought' from an 'is. Stated in broader terms, morality cannot come from nature. But is this actually the case? For two centuries Hume's Law has been highly influential in secular philosophy. It is also a serious problem in Catholic natural law ethics. Because many forms of Catholic natural law attempt to derive morality from nature, those forms may be vulnerable to Hume's critique. In this dissertation I look at two solutions that Catholic natural lawyers have proposed for the is-ought problem. Germain Grisez accepts the is-ought problem and derives morality from "basic goods" instead of nature. Jean Porter allows that morality can be derived from nature, but only because nature is morally charged by God; i.e. because natural law is intrinsically theological. I propose a third solution: that the metaphysical premises of the is-ought problem are unsound and that a contemporary philosophy of nature (emergent dynamics theory) proposed by Terrence Deacon can provide a coherent framework for deriving the moral "ought" from the natural "is." Deacon's philosophy of nature draws upon natural science to ground morality in nature in ways that are compatible with the Catholic natural law tradition. This dissertation contributes to discussion of the foundational issues of natural law, and the relationship of science and religion and science and ethics
