The church confronts modernity : Catholic intellectuals and the progressive era by Thomas E Woods( )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the twentieth century opened, American intellectuals grew increasingly sympathetic to Pragmatism and empirical methods in the social sciences. The Progressive program as a whole - in the form of Pragmatism, education, modern sociology, and nationalism - seemed to be in agreement on one thing: everything was in flux. The dogma and "absolute truth" of the Church were archaisms, unsuited to modern American citizenship and at odds with the new public philosophy being forged by such intellectuals as John Dewey, William James, and the New Republic magazine. Catholics saw this new public philosophy as at least partly an attack on them." "Focusing on the Catholic intellectual critique of modernity during the period immediately before and after the turn of the twentieth century, this book examines how the Catholic Church attempted to retain its identity in an age of pluralism. It shows a Church fundamentally united on major issues - quite unlike the present-day Catholic Church, which has been the site of a low-intensity civil war since the close of the Second Vatican Council in 1965. Defenders of the faith opposed James, Dewey, and other representatives of Pragmatism as it played out in ethics, education, and nationalism. Their goals were to found an economic and political philosophy based on natural law, to appropriate what good they could find in Progressivism to the benefit of the Church, and to make America a Catholic country." "The Church Confronts Modernity explores how the decidedly nonpluralistic institution of Christianity responded to an increasingly pluralistic intellectual environment. In a culture whose chief value was pluralism, they insisted on the uniqueness of the Church and the need for making value judgments based on what they considered a sound philosophy of humanity. In neither capitulating to the new creed nor retreating into a self-righteous isolation, American Catholic intellectuals thus laid the groundwork for a half-century of intellectual vitality."--Jacket

How the Catholic Church built Western civilization by Thomas E Woods( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Western civilization has given us the miracles of modern science, the wealth of free-market economics, the security of the rule of law, a unique sense of human rights and freedom, charity as a virtue, splendid art and music, a philosophy grounded in reason, and innumerable other gifts that we take for granted as the wealthiest and most powerful civilization in history. But what is the ultimate source of these gifts? Author Woods maintains: the Catholic Church. In this book, you'll learn: why modern science was born in the Catholic Church; how Catholic priests developed the idea of free-market economics five hundred years before Adam Smith; how the Catholic Church invented the university; why what you know about the Galileo affair is wrong; how Western law grew out of Church canon law; and how the Church humanized the West by insisting on the sacredness of all human life.--From publisher description
33 questions about American history you're not supposed to ask by Thomas E Woods( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Libertarian author Woods sets the record straight with a provocative look at the hidden truths about our nation's history--the ones that have been buried because they're too politically incorrect to discuss. Woods draws on real scholarship--as opposed to the myths, platitudes, and slogans so many other "history" books are based on--to ask and answer tough questions about American history. Woods's eye-opening exploration reveals how much has been whitewashed from the historical record, overlooked, and skewed beyond recognition.--From publisher description

The church and the market : a Catholic defense of the free economy by Thomas E Woods( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and Polish and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Church and the Market is a vigorous and lively defense of the market economy and a withering attack on all forms of state intervention. It covers labor unions, monopoly, money and banking, business cycles, interest, usury, and much more. Although it makes a particular point of noting the moral arguments of the market economy and that Catholics are of course perfectly at liberty to support it, its audience is much broader than Catholics alone. Readers of all religious traditions and none at all have praised The Church and the Market, first-place winner in the 2006 Templeton Enterprise Awards, as one of the most compelling and persuasive defenses of capitalism against its critics ever written."--Amazon.com

Rollback : repealing big government before the coming fiscal collapse by Thomas E Woods( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America is on the brink of financial collapse. Decades of political overpromising and underfunding have created a wave of debt that could swamp our already feeble economy. And the politicians' favorite tricks--raising taxes, borrowing from foreign governments, and printing more money--will only make it worse. Only one thing might save us: Roll back the government. Historian Thomas E. Woods, Jr. explains that we may still have a chance to avert total economic disaster--but only by completely changing our understanding of government. With bracing candor, he dissects just how the political class has nearly destroyed America's economy, and suggests how the coming collapse can be turned to your advantage--and the advantage of all who believe in liberty and limited government.--From publisher description
