The political philosophy of Rousseau by Roger D Masters( Book )

44 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended as an equivalent to or substitute for that ""more reflective reading"" which Rousseau considered essential to an understanding of his ideas. It is designed to complement perusal of the texts themselves, and the arrangement is such that chapters on each of Rousseau's major writings can be consulted separately or the commentary may be read through in sequence. The author's purpose is not to present a ""key"" to Rousseau's political philosophy, but rather to explore the works themselves in an effort to reveal Rousseau's ""system, "" from which the reader may then draw his ow

Machiavelli, Leonardo, and the science of power by Roger D Masters( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, Niccolo Machiavelli's works have been viewed primarily with historical interest as analyses of the tactics used by immoral political officials. Roger D. Masters, a leading expert in the relationship between modern natural science and politics, boldly argues in this book that Machiavelli should be reconsidered as a major philosopher whose thought makes the wisdom of antiquity accessible to the modern (and post-modern) condition, and whose understanding of human nature is superior to that of such moderns as Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Marx, or Mill. Central to Master's claim is his discovery, based in previously untranslated documents, that Machiavelli knew and worked with Leonardo da Vinci between 1502 and 1507
Rousseau, judge of Jean-Jacques, dialogues by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )

11 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Primate politics( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first book to focus on the political behavior of primates also undertakes to compare human social behavior with that of nonhuman primates. The editors contribute probing introductory essays to each of the three major parts of the volume in addition to their article-length introductory and concluding chapters. In his conclusion, Masters indicates directions for future work. Part I is devoted to theoretical clarification of the interrelationships between the study of primates and humans. Part II presents two examples of comparisons between animal and human social behavior that throw valuable light on contemporary political and social systems. Part III focuses more precisely on contemporary human politics, providing two concrete examples of ethological perspectives on human political behavior. In both cases, nonverbal cues studied by primatologists are shown to illuminate the dynamics of human politics

The Sense of justice : biological foundations of law( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What does it mean to have a "sense of justice"? Why is clarity about the sense of justice a critical issue in contemporary legal theory? And what contribution can be made by a naturalistic theory enlightened by research in the life sciences?" "The distinguished contributors to The Sense of Justice introduce scholars and advanced students to the social and behavioral foundations for the "sense of justice"--A form of balance or equilibrium that both individuals and legal systems seek to achieve and maintain in a changing and complex world. With diverse disciplinary backgrounds, the contributors bring various viewpoints to bear on the prospect of a more coherent theory of human justice. The Sense of Justice draws upon new discoveries and insights from the biologically based behavioral sciences that are critical for an enlightened understanding of legal phenomena, especially those dealing with complex social and political relationships."--Jacket

Painting and sculpture dominate most discussions of the Renaissance--but European artistic advances would never have occurred without an infusion of mathematical knowledge. This program explores the numerical and geometrical investigations on which the Italian Renaissance was founded. Outlining the Arab world's scientific influence on medieval Europe, the film addresses the development of linear perspective as well as many ideas related to numerical sequencing. Brunelleschi's vanishing-point experiment, Leonardo's obsession with the Golden Ratio, the Fibonacci numbers, the link between math and mapmaking, and other subjects are discussed
