Rulers and ruled : an introduction to classical political theory from Plato to the Federalists by Irving M Zeitlin( )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 1,533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book illuminates several timeless principles of political philosophy that have come down to us through the ages in the writings of Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Montesquieu, Rousseau, and the authors of the Federalist Papers, Madison, Hamilton, and Jay. Among these principles are the following: that a good society is based on law; that a good constitution balances social classes against each other; that a mixed constitution is best for this purpose; that popular sovereignty is the best foundation for a just and stable constitution; and that representative government is best for a large, complex society. In this valuable and accessibly written guide to the fundamentals of political thought, Irving Zeitlin shows that certain thinkers have given us insights that rise above historical context - 'trans-historical principles' that can provide the political scientist with an element of foresight, an ability not to predict events but to anticipate a certain range of possibilities. While the historian studies unique and unrepeatable circumstances such as those, for example, that gave rise to Julius Caesar, the political theorist, using these trans-historical principles, recognizes the conditions that can lead to Caesarism. Zeitlin draws on an unusual depth of knowledge, offering a lucid, interesting, and memorable summation of his chosen classic texts, in a work that will appeal strongly to his intended audience at the undergraduate level

Jesus and the Judaism of his time by Irving M Zeitlin( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The main aim of this work is to understand Jesus as he saw himself, and to compare that self-understanding with the ways in which others have grasped the nature of his mission. To achieve this aim, the key problems, questions and issues in dispute among scholars are reexamined, and resolved by means of a sociological method -- that is, carefully situating Jesus' biography in its social and historical context. The book includes a full analysis of the social structure of Palestine under Roman occupation, discussing the variety of sects and movements prevalent at the time, and the relation between the ruling Jewish circles and the Roman authorities. Materials relevant to our understanding of Jesus' life are analyzed, portraying his development from youth to his conflict with the Roman authorities
The historical Muhammad by Irving M Zeitlin( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his quest for the historical Muhammad, Zeitlin's chief aim is to catch glimpses of the birth of Islam and the role played by its extraordinary founder. Islam, as its Prophet came to conceive it, was a strict and absolute monotheism. How Muhammad had arrived at this view is not a problem for Muslims, who believe that the Prophet received a revelation from Allah or God, mediated by the Angel Gabriel. For scholars, however, interested in placing Muhammad in the historical context of the seventh-century Arabian Peninsula, the source of the Prophets inspiration is a significant question. It is apparent that the two earlier monotheisms, Judaism and Christianity, constituted an influential presence in the Hijaz, the region comprising Mecca and Medina. Indeed, Jewish communities were salient here, especially in Medina and other not-too-distant oases. Moreover, in addition to the presence of Jews and Christians, there existed a third category of individuals, the Hanifs, who, dissatisfied with their polytheistic beliefs, had developed monotheistic ideas. Zeitlin assesses the extent to which these various influences shaped the emergence of Islam and the development of the Prophets beliefs. He also seeks to understand how the process set in motion by Muhammad led, not long after his death, to the establishment of a world empire. -- from publisher description

Nietzsche : a re-examination by Irving M Zeitlin( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No thinker in the history of modern philosophy has made such a radical attack on Western values as Friedrich Nietzsche. His importance as a philosopher lies precisely in the challenge he threw down to the religio-moral and intellectual foundations of Western society. Zeitlin's aim in this re-examination of Nietzsche's work is to consider how we should assess Nietzsche's philosophical claims today. He shows that although Nietzsche has given us a highly fruitful theory of the origin of moral values, his philosophy is beset by unresolved problems, ambiguities, and defects. Zeitlin's critical exposition contains several distinctive elements. He gives considerable attention to Nietzsche's theory of Ressentiment and the 'inversion of values' by elaborating the theory and applying it to the two classical cases with which Nietzsche was most concerned: the Jews and the Greeks. He analyses Socrates' encounter with the 'proto-Nietzcheans' of his time; Karl Marx's rejoinder to Max Stirner, the boldest of Nietzsche's precursors in the modern era; Nietzsche's one-sided and erroneous interpretation of Darwin's theory; and the dangerous implications of Nietzsche's 'beyond good and evil' aestheticism. Finally, Zeitlin confronts Nietzsche's protagonist, Zarathustra - that enthusiastic spokesman for the 'master morality'. This book will be essential reading for second-year students and above, plus professionals in the areas of philosophy, social theory, and political thought

Classical sociological theory by Irving M Zeitlin( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a condensed version of Ideology and the Development of Sociological Theory. In its abridged form, the text focuses on the most distinguished classical thinkers in a more manageable size. It provides complete, systematic expositions of the classical sociological thinkers, theories, and concepts--from the 18th-century Enlightenment to the 20th century. The author demonstrates that much of what we call classical sociological thinking emerged and developed in the historical context of a long and intensive debate: First with the 18th-century Enlightenment, and later with its true heir in the 19th century, Karl Marx. The sociologists covered in the abridged text include Mary Wollstonecraft, Auguste Comte, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Karl Marx, Max Weber, Vilfredo Pareto, Gaitano Mosca, Robert Michels, Émile Durkheim, Karl Mannheim, and George Herbert Mead."--
