La nuova traduzione italiana delle Omelie sui Salmi di Basilio, le più neglette degli scritti del Cappadoce, è per la prima volta corredata di ampie note che inquadrano puntualmente il testo nel rapporto con altri autori cristiani precedenti, contemporanei e posteriori e nel confronto tra cultura greca e fede cristiana. Affiancano le Omelie sui Salmi altre quattro omelie esegetiche. L’insieme delle omelie fa emergere la finezza e l’originalità dell’interpretazione di Basilio, l’importanza del suo ruolo nella storia dell’esegesi ma anche la rilevanza del suo pensiero nelle molteplici componenti (teologia, antropologia, ecclesiologia, morale, ascetica e mistica).

Walter Benjamin is one of the most important figures of modern culture. The authors focus within this book on Benjamin as a philosopher, or rather as a critic of modernism entangled in tradition (mainly Jewish), but also as a writer. Philosophical and philological readings are accompanied by essays presenting the complex biography of Benjamin and numerous, often unexpected, parallels which indicate traces of his reflections in works of other artists. In consequence, «The Arcades Project», which can be described as Benjamin’s opus vitae, is not only a picturesque history of Parisian arcades of the mid-19th century. It is also a polyphonic text, composed of quotations, commentaries and footnotes, a discussion of the sense of history and the literary work of art that surprises with its meandering quality.

Epistemic Principles

A Primer for the Theory of Knowledge

Series:

Nicholas Rescher

Epistemic Principles: A Primer of the Theory of Knowledge presents a compact account of the basic principles of the theory of knowledge. In doing this, Nicholas Rescher aims to fill the current gap in contemporary philosophical theory of knowledge with a comprehensive analysis of epistemological fundamentals. The book is not a mere inventory of such rules and principles, but rather interweaves them into a continuous exposition of basic issues. Written at a user-friendly and accessible level, Epistemic Principles is an essential addition for both advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in epistemology.

Nacer desde el sueño

Fenomenología del onirismo en el pensamiento de María Zambrano

Series:

Gabriel Astey

María Zambrano (1904–1991) creó una antropología filosófica labrando con paciencia artesanal y vitalicia un puñado de conceptos: la divinización de lo sagrado, la razón-poética, el sentir originario, la forma-sueño, el devenir-persona. El pensamiento subyacente a los conceptos de forma-sueño y devenir-persona propone que el tiempo y la vida humanos vienen del sueño y que, soñando, cada quién descubre y actualiza su vida personal singular.

Este libro estudia esas propuestas a la luz de la fenomenología y el psicoanálisis; en esa medida, elabora un diálogo entre la filósofa andaluza, Husserl y Freud a propósito de la naturaleza temporal y la función anímica de los sueños.

Pero la obra es también una reflexión sobre el nacimiento y la muerte de la criatura ejemplar de esa antropología: la persona, que vive porque sueña y que sueña para vivir cada vez más humanamente.

W. Julian Korab-Karpowicz

The book focuses on Heidegger’s thoughtful repetition of early Greek thinking, and his receptive attention to the fragments of the Presocratics from our contemporary age. Their thought has a special value for him as the heritage which must be repeated anew in order to bring us back to the question of being and to open before us new avenues for existence. The author raises questions which help us to understand Heidegger as a thinker. He presents a deep analysis of Heidegger’s interpretations of the Presocratics and contributes to a new, insightful understanding of Heideggerian philosophy.

«The book deserves a wide reception among scholars who are interested in the Presocratics, Heidegger and contemporary philosophy.»

Dr. Katherine Morris (University of Oxford)

«Prof. Korab-Karpowicz (…) develops a consistent reading of Heidegger’s historical studies, thereby significantly contributing to a new approach for the study of Heideggerian philosophy.»

Dr. Michal Bizoń (Jagiellonian University, Kraków)

From Samos to Soho

The Unorthodox Life of Joseph Georgirenes, a Greek Archbishop

John Penrose Barron

Born on the small Greek island of Melos, Joseph Georgirenes became a monk on Mount Athos and was consecrated as Archbishop of Samos in 1666. Five years later he left his diocese and travelled to Europe, visiting Rome, Paris, London and Oxford. Scholars such as Antoine Galland in Paris and Thomas Smith in Oxford invited this Greek Orthodox priest to take part in their theological discussions. Until now, Georgirenes has been best known for having established the first Greek Orthodox church in London in Soho, and for publishing a detailed account of the condition and practices of the Orthodox church living under Ottoman rule. This booklet – A Description of the Present State of Samos, Nicaria, Patmos and Mount Athos – was published in London in 1677 and is republished here for the first time in England. Caught up in the Popish Plot, Georgirenes left England in 1682 and it was not known what happened to him. For the first time, however, this biography reveals the extraordinary further adventures of this much-travelled priest.

Solidarité et Enseignement Catholique au Cameroun : L’implication des Parents

Approche Analytique et Enjeux Ethiques à la Lumière de l’Enseignement Social des Evêques du Cameroun de 1955 à 2005

Series:

Stanislas Jean Abena Ahogni

« ‹Wa mbòk wa kar ki bed a yob›, autrement dit, ‹on ne saurait grimper sur un arbre avec un seul bras› » (Sagesse Béti/Cameroun, pour exprimer la notion de solidarité).

Prenant comme point de départ l’hypothèse que la notion de solidarité dans l’enseignement social de l’Eglise catholique connaît un réseau d’influences et d’héritages historiques, philosophiques, sociologiques et éthiques ; cette étude se propose de montrer en premier lieu, l’évolution du concept de solidarité né en France au XIXème siècle jusqu’à son usage dans les textes du Magistère. Cette recherche s’emploie en second lieu à faire comprendre le rôle incontournable que joue la solidarité dans l’action menée par les Parents d’élèves de l’enseignement catholique au Cameroun. Et ce, en vue du relèvement de l’école chrétienne qui, face à la forte demande de scolarisation, a subi au cours des dernières décennies, les coups de la crise économique, des changements socio-politiques et parfois la mauvaise foi de certains hauts responsables…

Ce livre s’adresse d'abord aux Educateurs, aux Professionnels du système éducatif, aux Hommes politiques et aux Parents. Il s’adresse ensuite à tous ceux qui s’intéressent à la condition des Enseignants, aux problèmes de la qualité de l’éducation et de la formation de la jeunesse en Afrique noire en général et au Cameroun en particulier.

Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth

Studies in Honour of Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia

Andreas Andreopoulos and Graham Speake

Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia, formerly Timothy Ware, is unquestionably the best-known Orthodox theologian in the Western world today. The papers collected in this volume are designed to demonstrate the spread of his own interests and concerns and therefore range from the Desert Fathers to modern church dialogue, from patristics to church music, from the Philokalia to human «priesthood». In the course of a long career he has touched the lives of many people and there is a section of tributes concerned with his role as spiritual father, teacher, writer, pastor, theologian, and monk. In the epilogue the Metropolitan himself reflects on his many years as a pilgrim to Mount Athos. Most of the papers included in this volume were delivered at a conference convened by the Friends of Mount Athos at Madingley Hall, Cambridge, in 2015 in honour of Metropolitan Kallistos’s eightieth birthday.

Self-Giving, Self-Mastery

St John Paul II on Men, Women and Conjugal Chastity

Alan O'Sullivan OP

The dignity of the person has always been a key theme of Pope John Paul II. Perhaps less well known is his emphasis on self-mastery as intrinsic to such dignity. In the love of man and woman, such mastery paves the way to self-giving and provides a richer, deeper experience of the union of persons. It also gives a new sensitivity to the beauty of masculinity and femininity as sexuality is seen in its original holiness: that is, by sharing in the Creator’s vision of the body. In this book, the author traces this daring portrait of human love back to the early writings of Karol Wojtyła.
