Reflections on constitutional law by George Anastaplo( )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today many constitutional law professors devote less than a week of each course to the philosophical tenets and legal origins of the U.S. Constitution, instead highlighting constitutional history and specific court cases. In Reflections on Constitutional Law, George Anastaplo emphasizes the continuing significance and importance of the Constitution by examining the most important influences on the American constitutional system, including the Magna Carta and the Declaration of Independence." "Reflections on Constitutional Law offers unique insights into the 1787 Constitution as well as a careful examination of the documents that preceded it. These documents, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Northwest Ordinance, have long been identified, with the Constitution, as the "organic laws of the United States." Anastaplo also examines the Confederate Constitution of 1861, a document intended to protect the Southern system of slavery, which was left vulnerable by the Constitution of 1787. Reflections on Constitutional Law discusses as well a series of key United States Supreme Court cases, a few of which are normally overlooked in constitutional law courses. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

The Christian heritage : problems and prospects by George Anastaplo( )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Christian Heritage: Problems and Prospects delves into the history of the western Christian heritage. Challenges to the Christian heritage, a heritage nourished both by Judaism and by the western classics, have been stimulated by the very success of the way of life that is promoted, a way of life that is somehow responsible for the emergence of modern science with its revolutionary technology. The reader is encouraged to reconsider authors prominent in the religious tradition of the West. Guidance is provided for examinations of the fundamental assumptions and the enduring questions by which Western Civilization has been guided and challenged for millennia. The enduring texts that we in the West repeatedly encounter, especially the most challenging of them, are apt to draw upon, and to illuminate the fundamental assumptions and the enduring questions by which Western Civilization has been guided and challenged for millennia. Vital to Western Civilization has long been the Christian Heritage. That Heritage has been taken for granted in our general education, in something as prosaic as the everyday operations of our legal system, and perhaps even in our economic and other social arrangements
Reflections on slavery and the Constitution by George Anastaplo( )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: In this insightful book about constitutional law and slavery, George Anastaplo illuminates both how the history of race relations in the United States should be approached and how seemingly hopeless social and political challenges can be usefully considered through the lens of the U.S. Constitution. He examines the outbreak of the American Civil War, its prosecution, and its aftermath, tracing the concept of slavery and law from its earliest beginnings and slavery's fraught legal history within the United States. Anastaplo offers discussions that bring into focus discussions of slavery in Ancient Greece and within the Bible, showing their influence on the Constitution and the subsequent political struggles that led to the Civil War

"The attitudes and assumptions of different cultures and historical periods toward war and the maintenance of peace are reviewed by recalling authors including Euripides, Sophocles, Plato, Cervantes, Shakespeare, Hobbes, and Zola. The challenges of war, peace, and national security for and by Americans are examined, as are documents such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of 1787. The lives and thoughts of eminent Americans are also recalled (including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin Roosevelt), as are the challenges posed by incidents such as the Dreyfus Affair and monstrosities such as the Holocaust during the Second World War. The appendixes reinforce these inquiries by providing critical documents in American history and interviews with a Holocaust survivor"--Unedited summary from book cover

Souls with Longing focuses on representations of honor and love in the plays and poetry of William Shakespeare.

The thinker as artist : from Homer to Plato & Aristotle by George Anastaplo( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an attempt to subject representative texts of a dozen ancient authors to a more or less Socratic inquiry, the noted scholar George Anastaplo suggests in The Thinker as Artist how one might usefully read as well as enjoy such texts, which illustrate the thinking done by the greatest artists and how they "talk" among themselves across the centuries. In doing so, he does not presume to repeat the many fine things said about these and like authors, but rather he discusses what he himself has noticed about them, text by text. Drawing upon a series of classical authors ranging from Homer and Sappho to Plato and Aristotle, Anastaplo examines issues relating to chance, art, nature, and divinity present in the artful works of philosophers and other thinkers
