Theory and tradition in eighteenth-century studies by Richard B Schwartz( )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 1,822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of nine essays by senior scholars Donald Greene, Morris R. Brownell, Richard B. Schwartz, Howard D. Weinbrot, Maximillian Novak, J. Paul Hunter, John H. Middendorf, Shirley Strum Kenny, and Gwin J. Kolb. They draw from their own experiences as students and scholars to assess the past and present position of theory in eighteenth-century studies and to discuss the important areas of scholarship that remain relatively unexplored, often proposing specific projects. Some essays are controversial; all are lively and personal. The essays evolved from a 1987 conference held at Georgetown University—the first such conference to examine the state of eighteenth-century literary studies in fifteen years

Tyrannical machines : a report on educational practices gone wrong and our best hopes for setting them right by Lynne V Cheney( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This analysis of educational practices in the United States takes the position that a number of practices, including the way teachers are trained, textbooks selected, and college and university faculty rewarded, have become institutionalized and endure in spite of the reform efforts of the past decade. These practices, once established on a large scale, became both counterproductive and resistant to change. A reform agenda is suggested, establishing and encouraging alternatives. These include: (1) parental choice of elementary/secondary schools; (2) alternative paths to certification for prospective teachers; (3) alternatives to the mechanical criteria commonly used to select textbooks; (4) alternatives to the Scholastic Aptitude Test (sat) such as the National Assessment of Educational Progress; (5) inservice opportunities for teachers to study their subjects; (6) paths to recognition and reward for college faculty that emphasize teaching as well as research; and (7) well-informed choices for college selection for students and parents. The value of cultural and educational programs--"the parallel school" offered by museums, libraries, the theater, and exemplary television presentations--is discussed. (140 endnotes) (jd)

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Schine's intellectual biography of Max Wiener, Jewish Thought Adrift: Max Wiener, 1882-1950 (1992), profiles a liberal German-Jewish thinker who turned toward Zionism as the only natural future for Judaism.

The Jewish family in antiquity( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume consists of papers (or the offspring of papers) that were delivered by the Hellenistic Judaism section of the 1990 and 1991 annual meetings of the Society for Biblical Literature. In recognition of the fact that so little work had been down on the subject, presenters were not asked to focus on a single set of questions, a single body of evidence, or utilize a single methodology. Rather the goal was to get a sense of the range of possibilities suggested by the topic. The variety in this collection mirrors the variety of our evidence and the variety of questions that can be asked of it

Kol nidre : studies in the development of rabbinic votive institutions by Moshe Benovitz( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an introduction to the laws of oaths and vows of various types as they appear in biblical, Second Temple, and rabbinic sources. These institutions developed over time, and the oaths and vows mentioned in Second Temple literature should not be understood in light of subsequent rabbinic development. On the contrary: it is precisely the Second Temple texts, however obscure they may be, that provide the clues toward understanding the evolution of these institutions in rabbinic literature.

The Peri Pascha attributed to Melito of Sardis : setting, purpose, and sources by Lynn H Cohick( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume remains one of the only major studies of the Peri Pascha. The Peri Pascha was authored by Melito, the Christian bishop of Sardis in the second century CE, as a homily. It is notable for its early, extensive, and sharply anti-Judaic typological analysis of the paschal lamb described in Exodus 12. Cohick's study explores the purpose, sources, and especially the anti-Judaic elements of this homily. "--Provided by publisher
