Leviathan : or, The matter, forme and power of a commonwealth, ecclesiasticall and civil by Thomas Hobbes( Book )

10 editions published between 1962 and 1997 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comparable to Plato's Republic in depth and insight, Leviathan includes two society-changing phenomena that Plato didn't dare to dream of -- the rise of great nation-states with their claims to absolute sovereignty, and modern science, with its unprecedented analytic power. To Hobbes, the leviathan -- a mythical sea creature described in the Old Testament -- represented his central thesis: that the state must be strong in order to control and protect its citizens. Even today, Hobbes's thesis in Leviathan is debated among scholars and philosophy aficionados around the globe ... Like Plato's Republic, this book contains ideas on psychology, ethics, law, language, and religion that continue to challenge modern thinkers and exercise a profound influence on Western thought. A classic treatise of philosophy, Leviathan is critical reading for anyone who wishes to examine the human mind through the prisms of government and society
Psychology and ethical development : a collection of articles on psychological theories, ethical development and human understanding by R. S Peters( Book )

19 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second looks in historical order at ethical development. The third part combines a novel approach to the problem of understanding other people, whilst the fourth part is biographical in an unusual way

Moral development and moral education by R. S Peters( Book )

21 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1981, this collection of essays was taken from Peters' larger work, Psychology and Ethical Development (1974) in order to provide a more focused volume on moral education for students. Peters' background in both psychology and philosophy makes the work distinctive, which is evident from the first two essays alone: 'Freud's theory of Moral Development in Relation to that of Piaget' and 'Moral Education and the Psychology of Character'. He also displays balance in his acceptance that reason and feeling are both of great importance where the subject of moral education is concerned
