Thinking with concepts by John Wilson( Book )

67 editions published between 1963 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 1,644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his preface Mr Wilson writes 'I feel that a great many adults ... would do better to spend less time in simply accepting the concepts of others uncritically, and more time in learning how to analyse concepts in general'. Mr Wilson starts by describing the techniques of conceptual analysis. He then gives examples of them in action by composing answers to specific questions and by criticism of quoted passages of argument. Chapter 3 sums up the importance of this kind of mental activity. Chapter 4 presents selections for the reader to analyse, followed by questions of university entrance/scholarship type. This is a book to be worked through, in a sense a text-book

19 editions published between 1668 and 2013 in English and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erasmus of Rotterdam wrote the essay The Praise of Folly during a week at Sir Thomas More's estate in Bucklersbury. He later refined and extended the piece. In it he personifies Folly as a god, whose companions are likewise-personified sins and human weaknesses. His work criticizes the Catholic Church, and culminates in a statement of Christian ideals. Erasmus was a faithful Catholic, but his text is considered a catalyst to the Protestant movement

Part ii considers how the study of philosophy, literature, drama, theology, history, and science contribute to moral development. Part iii examines ways in which world-studies polytechnics can be of concern to moral educators, describes an experimental college course on the exploration of values, looks at moral development within the context of the institution, colleges and universities, and treats the role of student services in student development.
