A world of ideas : essential readings for college writers by Lee A Jacobus( Book )

27 editions published between 1983 and 2017 in English and held by 856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... A World of Ideas introduces first-year writing students to the thinkers and writers whose ideas have shaped civilization. Niccolò Machiavelli on government, Elizabeth Cady Stanton on justice, and Sigmund Freud on the mind. Because students perceive these writers as important, they take the writing course seriously: they learn to read more attentively, think more critically, and write more effectively. No other composition reader offers a comparable collection of important readings along with the supportive apparatus students need to understand, analyze, and respond to them."--Amazon

Shakespeare and the dialectic of certainty by Lee A Jacobus( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare's plays examine the theme of certainty with consummate skill, exploring evil and good, assurance and its absence, intuition and love, evidence and interpretation, and the dialectical methods used to guide moral action. The first chapter of this important new book establishes the intellectual perspective of sixteenth-and seventeenth-century epistemology, emphasizing the paradigm shift in dialectic - the art of logic - that precipitated a crisis of thought among such figures as Dee, Marlowe, Bacon, and Raleigh. The rest of the book discusses fourteen of the plays, beginning with the early comedies, then treating tragedies, history plays, and one problem play in terms of their special approaches to the questions of certainty, slowing how Shakespeare breathed life into what might have remained a scholastic debate. Professor Jacobus's book makes a major contribution to this important field
