What is Enlightenment? eighteenth-century answers and twentieth-century questions by James Schmidt( )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 1,832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection contains the first English translations of a group of important eighteenth-century German essays that address the question, "What is Enlightenment?" The book also includes newly translated and newly written interpretive essays by leading historians and philosophers, which examine the origins of eighteenth-century debate on Enlightenment and explore its significance for the present.

It has ra
The Enlightenment reason, tolerance, and humanity by James Schmidt( )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This course discusses the work of such influential thinkers as Voltaire, Locke, Diderot, Smith, Kant, and Franklin. It also spends some time with less well-known, but no less influential, figures. To understand this era one needs to look not just at what people wrote but also at how they lived. People began to congregate in coffeehouses, where they read newspapers, discussed politics, and created something known as "public opinion". Others began to meet in societies that were dedicated to the advancement of the sciences and there they explored how science might be put to work improving society. This course offers a balanced assessment of the Enlightenment, considering both its achievements and its shortcomings and focusing not only on its most important intellectual achievements but also on the strange and often colorful characters who populated it

Resource financed infrastructure : a discussion on a new form of infrastructure financing by Håvard Halland( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent decades, resource-rich developing countries have been using their natural resources as collateral to access sources of finance for investment, countervailing the barriers they face when accessing conventional bank lending and capital markets. One of the financing models that have emerged as a result is the Resource Financed Infrastructure (RFI) model, a derivation of previous oil-backed lending models pioneered by several Western banks in Africa. Under a Resource Financed Infrastructure (RFI) arrangement, a loan for current infrastructure construction is securitized against the net present value of a future revenue stream from oil or mineral extraction. The model has been applied in several African countries, for a cumulative contract value of approximately

Victory rests with the Lord : God in the Vietnam War by James Schmidt( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Victory Rests with the Lord is a validation of Proverbs 21:31, "The Horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord." The commander of one of the most successful infantry companies during the Vietnam War makes a strong case that the war was winnable if God would have provided our leaders the wisdom and creativity to employ the correct tactics. Victory Rests with the Lord explains why the most powerful military in the world was defeated in the Vietnam War. It explains why and how God intervened in both victory and defeat within the war. Uncover both the flawed tactics that led to America's defeat, and the tactics that would have led to victory if used throughout the war. Victory Rests with the Lord reveals a highly effective automated battlefield that employed mechanical ambushes in the latter years of the war. Learn the most important lesson from the Vietnam War and what America must do to prevent another similar defeat. Victory Rests with the Lord provides evidence of the power of Jesus Christ and serves as a warning to America to return to the Bible as its moral compass
