An essay on the principle of population : text, sources and background, criticism by T. R Malthus( Book )

15 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in English and held by 1,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While millions face hunger, malnutrition, and starvation, the world's population is increasing by over 225,000 people per day, 80 million per year. In many countries, supplies of food and water are inadequate to support this many people, so the world falls deeper and deeper into what economists call the "Malthusian trap," named for the writer whose work, more than any other, brought attention to the population dilemma. Thomas Robert Malthus first published An Essay on the Principle of Population in 1798, and it quickly became the focal point of controversies which continue today. Simply put, it stated that human population increased at a geometric rate, while agricultural production could, at best, increase only arithmetically, thus resulting in shortages of food. While this idea was neither entirely new nor wholly indisputable, Malthus' clear and forceful statement sounded an alarm. Today, many nations and individuals are making efforts to curb runaway population growth, but for much of the world, the problem remains unsolved." "This new edition of the classic work contains the text of the original 1798 essay, along with later revisions made by the author. Background and source materials include excerpts from works by such writers as David Hume, Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, Charles Darwin, and Karl Marx. Contemporary commentary ranges widely through many schools of thought, from Lester R. Brown, Paul and Anne Ehrlich, and Garret Hardin to Julian Simon and Pope Paul VI. The evolution of Malthus' idea and its validity through the years are traced in Philip Appleman's comprehensive introduction."--Jacket

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With an astonishing command of nature imagery, from sparrows to mastodons, Philip Appleman can deftly weave into a single poem an intricate pattern of ideas drawn from evolution, humanism, anthropology, religious skepticism, and everyday experience. Appealing to reason as well as to emotion and imagination, he writes poems of lyrical intensity and remarkable narrative depth. He creates characters - Eve or Darwin or a failed priest - with such wit, compassion, and subtle humor that they live on the page and surprise us with new insights into joy and sorrow, life and death. Set on the beach at Malibu, in the port of Trieste, or in a Manhattan subway, his poems evoke genuine feeling without sentimentality and transform the personal into the universal. Drawn from six previous books of poetry written over four decades, and with fourteen new poems, this collection shows the power and complexity of Appleman's wide-ranging talent

Perfidious proverbs and other poems : a satirical look at the Bible by Philip Appleman( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of satirical poems, renowned poet Philip Appleman homes in on the inconsistencies and downright perversities of what passes in our culture as Holy Writ. Turning to satire, with its long and distinguished record of exposing folly and bringing enlightenment through humor, Appleman leaves no doubt that primitive religion posing as eternal truth is just the sort of folly that satire is meant to correct.--Humanity Books

The labyrinth : God, Darwin, and the meaning of life by Philip Appleman( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Have you wondered where we came from or whether there is a god? And if so, why there is so much evil and turmoil in the world? Have you pondered the notion of an afterlife? And what role it has in determining our behavior while alive? Philip Appleman sagely and eloquently addresses these questions, putting them in the illuminating context of our evolutionary development and cultural history. Twenty-first century thinkers, reflecting on the long and horrendous history of religious wars and atrocities, are no longer willing to pay the traditional deference to religious authority, preferring instead to seek inside their own lives, thoughts, and action for the answers to life's greatest questions. Appleman concludes that a life well lived, short as it is in the eons of our planet's existence, is its own reward
