The enduring influence of the Catholic Church has many sources - its spiritual and intellectual appeal, missionary achievements, wealth, diplomatic effectiveness, and stable hierarchy. But in the first half of the 19th century, the foundations upon which the church had rested for centuries were shaken. In the eyes of many thoughtful people, liberalism in the guise of liberty, equality, and fraternity was the quintessence of the evils that shook those foundations. At the Vatican Council of 1869-1870, the church made a dramatic effort to set things right by defining the doctrine of papal infallibility.In Vatican I: The Council and the Making of the Ultramontane Church, John W. O'Malley draws us into the bitter controversies over papal infallibility that at one point seemed destined to rend the church in two. Archbishop Henry Manning was the principal driving force for the definition, and Lord Acton was his brilliant counterpart on the other side. But they shrink in significance alongside Pope Pius IX, whose zeal for the definition was so notable that it raised questions about the very legitimacy of the council. Entering the fray were politicians such as Gladstone and Bismarck. The growing tension in the council played out within the larger drama of the seizure of the Papal States by Italian forces and its seemingly inevitable consequence, the conquest of Rome itself.Largely as a result of the council and its aftermath, the Catholic Church became more pope-centered than ever before. In the terminology of the period, it became ultramontane.A number one Amazon.com best seller in Christian canon law 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matthew McAuliffe.

Another Reason (eBook, ePUB)
38,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Another Reason is a bold and innovative study of the intimate relationship between science, colonialism, and the modern nation. Gyan Prakash, one of the most influential historians of India writing today, explores in fresh and unexpected ways the complexities, contradictions, and profound importance of this relationship in the history of the subcontinent. He reveals how science served simultaneously as an instrument of empire and as a symbol of liberty, progress, and universal reason--and how, in playing these dramatically different roles, it was crucial to the emergence of the modern nation. Prakash ranges over two hundred years of Indian history, from the early days of British rule to the dawn of the postcolonial era. He begins by taking us into colonial museums and exhibitions, where Indian arts, crafts, plants, animals, and even people were categorized, labeled, and displayed in the name of science. He shows how science gave the British the means to build railways, canals, and bridges, to transform agriculture and the treatment of disease, to reconstruct India's economy, and to transfigure India's intellectual life--all to create a stable, rationalized, and profitable colony under British domination. But Prakash points out that science also represented freedom of thought and that for the British to use it to practice despotism was a deeply contradictory enterprise. Seizing on this contradiction, many of the colonized elite began to seek parallels and precedents for scientific thought in India's own intellectual history, creating a hybrid form of knowledge that combined western ideas with local cultural and religious understanding. Their work disrupted accepted notions of colonizer versus colonized, civilized versus savage, modern versus traditional, and created a form of modernity that was at once western and indigenous. Throughout, Prakash draws on major and minor figures on both sides of the colonial divide, including Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, the nationalist historian and novelist Romesh Chunder Dutt, Prafulla Chandra Ray (author of A History of Hindu Chemistry), Rudyard Kipling, Lord Dalhousie, and John Stuart Mill. With its deft combination of rich historical detail and vigorous new arguments and interpretations, Another Reason will recast how we understand the contradictory and colonial genealogy of the modern nation.

The Political Implications of John Locke's Empi...
61,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This work attempts to solve the problem why it can be said that John Locke's philosophy exerted a considerable influence on the French and American Revolutions. The answer will prove that John Locke was one of the originators of the ideas of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity which are basic foundations necessary for the establishment of a democratic system of government. This work will analyze the nature of democratic principles to show that they are essentially grounded in ethics and that they contribute to ways and means of enhancing the smooth functioning of a developed and stable society. This presupposition will be proved and evaluated by using the principle of deductive reasoning providing evidence that, the conclusion follows necessarily from the given premises. To resolve the research problem the descriptive method and the evaluative method will be used.

Involuntary Hospitalization across the EU Membe...
32,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Acute admissions to psychiatric hospitals are sensitive clinical procedures, especially if performed on the legally defined basis of involuntariness. Their massive impact on the liberty and freedom of the persons concerned has triggered a number of legal and ethical discussions at European level. The different legal traditions and approaches dominating in Europe make cross-national harmonization still look like an over-optimistic scenario. Thus, this book describes the legal frameworks and routine procedures of involuntary hospitalization in the European Union Member States and examines the compliance of these countries with the Human Rights Safeguards. Moreover, it makes a comparison between two characteristic examples of involuntary hospitalization regimes, Greece and the UK, emphasizing the advantages and disadvantages of each. Finally, it points out the necessity to increase the harmony of the laws, acts and procedures across the Member States. It is necessary to have a stable common ground that could regulate the significant subject of involuntary hospitalization and lead countries towards a human-rights direction. This book offers practical recommendations in this direction.
