Introduction to Aristotle by Aristotle( Book )

38 editions published between 1941 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Introduction to Aristotle is a presentation in which Aristotle is permitted to speak for himself in the context of a sketched scheme of the relation of what he says in one treatise to what he says elsewhere. The seven introductions which precede these seven works place them in their contexts by describing their relations to other works or parts of works, their place in the scheme of the Aristotelian sciences, and the fashion in which the subjects treated in the sciences they expound may be considered in the approaches proper to other sciences in the system. - Preface

Edicts by Aśoka( Book )

29 editions published between 1958 and 1978 in 3 languages and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Asoka, the remarkable Indian ruler of third century B.C., who not only renounced the warlike policies of his early career but actually made a public proclamation of his errors, left a record of his teachings which he hoped would endure forever. It was inscribed on stone, not as a monument to himself but as a record of moral law. "The Edicts of Asoka," writes Richard McKeon in his Foreword, "form part of a large body of literature, drawn from all cultures, which seeks power not in domination of men or accumulation of possessions but in conquest of self, in understanding of others, and in conquest of self, in understanding of others, and in contemplation of truths within the scope of reason and goods within the scope of action ... The classics of this literature may take on a new importance and a new power in the world today."--Back cover

Sic et non : a critical edition by Peter Abelard( Book )

30 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in Latin and English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps his most important contribution to philosophy and theology is the method which he developed in his "Sic et Non" (Yea and Nay), a method germinally contained in the teaching of his predecessors, and afterwards brought to more definite form by Alexander of Hales and St. Thomas Aquinas. It consisted in placing before the student the reasons pro and contra, on the principle that truth is to be attained only by a dialectical discussion of apparently contradictory arguments and authorities." Turner, W. (1907). Peter Abelard. In The Catholic Encyclopedia. New York: Robert Appleton Company. Retrieved May 18, 2010 from New Advent: http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/01036b.htm

Rhetoric : essays in invention and discovery by Richard McKeon( Book )

8 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given the prodigious range of McKeon's intellectual curiosity, his longtime and pervasive interest in rhetoric suggests the unique place he assigns it in the scheme of humanistic arts. Throughout history rhetoric has infused and ordered philosophy, and more important, philosophy has often been an unknowing form of rhetoric. By bringing together McKeon's most important works on rhetoric and philosophy, this volume seeks to broaden the reader's appreciation of rhetoric as a central, critical method for the analysis of ideas
