To the Farewell address; ideas of early American foreign policy by Felix Gilbert( Book )

32 editions published between 1961 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Washington's Farewell Address comprises various aspects of American political thinking. It reaches beyond any period limited in time and reveals the basic issue of the American attitude toward foreign policy: the tension between Idealism and Realism. Settled by men who looked for gain and by men who sought freedom, born into independence in a century of enlightened thinking and of power politics, America has wavered in her foreign policy between Idealism and Realism, and her great historical moments have occurred when both were combined. Thus the history of the Farwell Address forms only part of the wider, endless, urgent problem. Felix Gilbert analyzes the diverse intellectual trends which went into the making of the Farwell Address, and sheds light on its beginnings

History : politics or culture? : reflections on Ranke and Burckhardt by Felix Gilbert( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leopold von Ranke (1795-1886), generally recognized as the founder of the school of modern critical historical scholarship, and Jacob Burckhardt (1818-1897), the great Swiss proponent of cultural interpretation, are fathers of modern history--giants of their time who continue to exert an immense influence in our own. They are usually seen as contrasts, Ranke as representative of political history and Burckhardt of cultural history. In five essays, each flowing gracefully into the next, the distinguished historian Felix Gilbert shows that such contrasts are oversimplifications. Despite their interest in different aspects of the past, Ranke's and Burckhardt's views arose from common elements in the first half of the nineteenth century, the time in which they grew up and in which their first masterworks attracted such wide attention. This concise volume clarifies the beginnings of history as an autonomous discipline, while forcing us to examine our views on basic questions in historical scholarship.In the case of Ranke, relating his work to his times counteracts the current tendency to disregard the difference between the historical concepts of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. By focusing on this difference, Gilbert emphasizes the originality and novelty of Ranke's ideas about history. Although Burckhardt is often portrayed as an intellectually lonely figure, this book reveals the importance of relating his thought to the intellectual trends of his time.Originally published in 1990.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

History of Florence and of the affairs of Italy : from the earliest times to the death of Lorenzo the Magnificent by Niccolò Machiavelli( Book )

4 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Las páginas que recorren esta historia de Florencia durante la baja Edad Media estan dedicadas a la creciente y "lamentable{OCLCbr#BB} corrupción que experimentó la ciudad y como su maligna influencia encontró caldo de cultivo, estranguló una libertad nacida de entre las ruinas del Imperio Romano en base a una virtúd que libró y defendió a Italia de los bárbaros, y como la precipitó en la tiranía y en la desgracia. En el ámbito exterior esto encontró su reflejo en un manejo indeciso y cobarde de los asuntos militares; y, en el doméstico, Florencia se había convertido en una comunidad condenada a oscilar entrte dos polos igualmente ruinosos, que varían no entre la libertad y la esclavitud sino entre la esclavitud y el libertinaje. Los nobles serían los promotores de lo primero y el pueblo llano de lo segundo, pasando consecuentemente de formas de gobierno tiránicas a licenciosas y viceversa

Machiavelli e Guicciardini : pensiero politico e storiografia a Firenze nel Cinquecento by Felix Gilbert( Book )

37 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pubblicato in inglese nel 1965 e tradotto da Einaudi nel 1970, "Machiavelli e Guicciardini" si è imposto subito come un classico della storiografia sul Rinascimento per la vastità delle ricerche archivistiche che lo sostengono e per l'eccezionale talento narrativo degl'autore. Nell'affrontare una stagione decisiva della cultura europea, Felix Gilbert riesce infatti a coniugare come pochi il corpo a corpo con i testi dei due grandi pensatori fiorentini alla minuziosa ricostruzione dell'ambiente intellettuale nel quale si sono formati. Messi a confronto con il lessico del tempo e inseriti nei grandi conflitti sociali della repubblica di Savonarola e Soderini, "Il Principe", i "Discorsi" e la "Storia d'Italia" ci vengono cosi restituiti in una luce inedita, sino a fare di essi non più dei capolavori isolati ma il frutto più originale e avanzato di un generale ripensamento delle credenze sull'utile e sull'onesto, sulla violenza e sull'educazione, sull'importanza delle istituzioni e sul ruolo della religione nella vita pubblica. Tutti temi che sono ancora oggi al centro della riflessione dei filosofi: e il saggio introduttivo scritto appositamente per questa nuova edizione da Gabriele Pedullà mostra appunto come il libro di Gilbert non dialoghi soltanto con tutti i grandi rinascimentalisti della sua generazione (da Baron e Rubinstein a Kantorowicz), ma discuta sotterraneamente le tesi dei maggiori pensatori politici tedeschi del XX secolo, da Hans Kelsen a Carl Schmitt
