The art of deception by Nicholas Capaldi( Book )

35 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this fully updated and revised edition, coauthors Nicolas Capaldi and Miles Smith take an original approach to teaching critical thinking. By cataloging and outlining for readers tactics on how to develop the skills of deception and manipulation, the authors demonstrate that this is a foolproof way to avoid falling for the fallacious and fuzzy logic of others. They also show how to improve our own deficits in making careful decisions about our word choices, why we hold the opinions that we do, and how we form arguments. Readers will learn to apply these skills to everyday situations, whether debating politics with friends or evaluating the pitch of a persuasive salesman."--Jacket
John Stuart Mill : a biography by Nicholas Capaldi( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and Turkish and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nicholas Capaldi's biography (no competitor is currently in print) traces the ways in which Mill's many endeavors are related and explores the significance of Mill's contributions to metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, social and political philosophy, the philosophy of religion, and the philosophy of education. He shows how Mill was groomed for his role in life by both his father, James Mill, and Jeremy Bentham, the two most prominent philosophical radicals of the early nineteenth century. Yet Mill revolted against this education and developed friendships with Thomas Carlyle and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who introduced him to Romanticism and political conservatism." "A special feature of this biography is the attention devoted to the relationship with Harriet Taylor. No one exerted a greater influence on Mill than the woman he was eventually to marry. Nicholas Capaldi reveals just how deep her impact was on Mill's thinking about the emancipation of women. Clarifying this relationship helps to explain why Mill was concerned not only with such issues as the franchise and representation, but also with a fundamental concept of personal autonomy that became pivotal to his thought." "There has never been a serious attempt to set out the interconnections of Mill's thought in this manner. Moreover, this biography presents the private life as both a reflection and an instantiation of ideas and values - a life so constructed as to be a Romantic work of art."--BOOK JACKET

An influx of illegal aliens crossing U.S. borders has become the white-hot flash point igniting intense debate over immigration, a deeply contested public policy issue since the founding of our nation. The current debate focuses on undocumented immigrants, many of whom enter our major cities and, in the minds of some critics, wreak havoc with depleted public resources, job availability, social services, law enforcement, race relations, and domestic politics in general. - Back cover

Liberty in Hume's History of England by Nicholas Capaldi( Book )

10 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LIBERTY IN HUME'S HISTORY OF ENGLAND In his own lifetime, Hume was feted by his admirers as a great historian, and even his enemies conceded that he was a controversial historian with whom one had to reckon. On the other hand, Hume failed to achieve positive recognition for his philosophical views. It was Hume's History of England that played an influential role in public policy debate during the eighteenth century in both Great Britain and in the United States. Hume's Hist01Y of England passed through seven editions and was beginning to be perceived as a classic before Hume's death. Voltaire, as an historian, considered it "perhaps the best ever written in any lan guage." Gibbon greatly admired Hume's work and said, of a letter written by Hume in 1776 praising the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, that a compliment from Hume "overpaid the labor of ten years." After Hume's death on August 20, 1776, the History became a factor in the revolutionary events that began to unfold. Louis XVI was a close student of Hume's History, and his valet records that, upon having learned that the Convention had voted the death penalty, the King asked for the volume in Hume's History covering the trial and execution of Charles I to read in the days that remained. But if Louis XVI found the consolations of philosophical history in the Stuart volumes, Thomas Jefferson saw in them a cause for alarm
The Ashgate research companion to corporate social responsibility by David Crowther( Book )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years the term corporate social responsibility (CSR) has gained prominence, both in business and in the media, not least because of the rise in power of the trans-national corporation in an increasingly globalised world. It is one of the most debated management issues, yet there is a lack of consensus on what the concept means, what it entails, why it should be embraced and how." "This new Ashgate Research Companion brings together a team of scholars from around the world offering their view of the key issues in corporate social responsibility research. Each author is concerned with different aspects of CSR, offering a variety of theoretical lenses and a wide range of perspectives from different countries and experiences. The companion shows the diversity of concerns which fall under the umbrella of corporate social responsibility and highlights a number of important issues for debate. It offers scholars and graduate students a valuable guide to current thinking and a comprehensive reference to this increasingly important field."--Jacket

The Enlightenment project in the analytic conversation by Nicholas Capaldi( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analytic philosophy has been a dominant intellectual movement in the 20th century and a reflection of the cultural pre-eminence of scientism. In response to analytic philosophy's peculiar reticence (and inability) to discuss itself, this book provides its first comprehensive history and critique. The central element in the analytic conversation has been the Enlightenment Project: the appeal to an autonomous human reason, freed of any higher authority and channeling itself through science as its privileged tool. This centrality is demonstrated by systematically examining its presence and development in the philosophy of science, metaphysics, epistemology, language, psychology, social science, ethics, political philosophy, and the history of philosophy. This journey highlights the internal logical disintegration of that project. Post-modern relativism is its natural offspring and not a viable alternative. The Enlightenment Project's conception of physical science is defective; this defective conception of physical science renders the analytic conception of social science, philosophical psychology, and epistemology defective; and that defective conception of the human condition leads to defective conceptions of both moral and political philosophy, specifically the idea of social engineering or social technology. Throughout the book, an alternative conception of philosophy is presented as a way out of the abyss of analysis, an alternative that reconnects philosophy with the mainstream of Western civilization and initiates the process of providing a coherent cultural narrative. This book will be of particular interest to any sophisticated reader concerned about the lack of a coherent cultural narrative
