Freedom, faith, and dogma : essays by V.S. Soloviev on Christianity and Judaism by Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Freedom, Faith. and Dogma is Vladimir Wozniuk's fourth volume of translations of Soloviev's writings. These essays display the Christian philosopher's concerns about the obstacles that religious and political dogma present to the free pursuit of faith. Many of them explore the reasons why neither Judaism nor Christianity was ever able to establish a truly just "kingdom of God." Several also reflect Soloviev's steadfast and outspoken championing of full religious and civic rights for Jews throughout Russia and all of Europe. Wozniuk's introduction places Soloviev squarely in the mainstream of Christian thought and highlights the concerns that dominate this collection: the meaning of church unification, the proper relationship between church and state, and how to deal with the tendency of the powerful to exploit the powerless, concerns that remain relevant to this day."--Jacket
Politics, law, and morality : essays by Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov( )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 1,480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered one of Russia's greatest philosophers, Vladimir Soloviev (1853-1900) was also a theologian, historian, poet, and social and political critic. His works have emerged to enjoy renewed attention in post-Soviet Russia, and his concerns echo in contemporary discussions of politics, law, and morality. In this collection of Soloviev's essays - many translated into English for the first time - the philosopher explores an array of social issues, from the death penalty to nationalism to women's rights."--Jacket
The heart of reality : essays on beauty, love, and ethics by Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vladimir S. Soloviev (1853-1900), moral philosopher, social and literary critic, theologian, and poet, is considered one of Russia's greatest philosophers. But Soloviev is relatively unknown in the West, despite his close association with Fyodor Dostoevsky, who modeled one of his most famous literary characters, Alyosha Karamazov, on Soloviev. In The Heart of Reality, Vladimir Wozniuk offers a lucid translation, careful annotations, and a substantive introduction that make many of Soloviev's writings accessible for the first time to an English-speaking audience." "Containing many previously untranslated essays, The Heart of Reality situates Soloviev more clearly in the mainstream of Western religious philosophy and Christian thought."--Jacket

Enemies from the East? : V.S. Soloviev on paganism, Asian civilizations, and Islam by Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As cultural conflicts roil the world, the idea of a "clash of civilizations" has lately taken hold, with commentators from both East and West weighing the religious and political disparities that affect global unity. For all its present currency and urgency, the idea is nothing new. In various contexts V. S. Soloviev (1853-1900), the most distinguished representative of nineteenth-century Russian religious philosophy, anticipated our current global dilemma by more than a hundred years. These essays, presented together for the first time in English, consider from a number of perspectives how a future clash of cultures between East and West threatens human progress toward the harmonic unity that, for Soloviev, represented the ultimate human telos. The six essays comprising this book span Soloviev's publishing career, beginning with "The Mythological process in ancient Paganism," written at the age of twenty, and ending with “Muhammad, His life and religious teaching," which appeared four years before Soloviev's death at forty-seven. Throughout, Soloviev grapples with commonalities and differences apparent in the moral frameworks of civilizations since antiquity; and in religious and cultural practices, from Europe through the Middle East to Asia. His probing of the sources of religious morality and political authority in human history reinvigorated Russian intellectual interest in the East/West question in his time and still resonates powerfully in our own
We by Evgeniĭ Ivanovich Zami︠a︡tin( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the One State of the great Benefactor, there are no individuals, only numbers. Life is an ongoing process of mathematical precision, a perfectly balanced equation. Primitive passions and instincts have been subdued. Even nature has been defeated, banished behind the Green Wall. But one frontier remains: outer space. Now, with the creation of the spaceship Integral, that frontier--and whatever alien species are to be found there--will be subjugated to the beneficent yoke of reason. One number, D-503, chief architect of the Integral, decides to record his thoughts in the final days before the launch for the benefit of less advanced societies. But a chance meeting with the beautiful 1-330 results in an unexpected discovery that threatens everything D-503 believes about himself and the One State. The discovery--or rediscovery--of inner space ... and that disease the ancients called the soul ... A dystopian novel completed in 1921

Patterns of censorship around the world by Ilan Peleg( )

2 editions published between 1993 and 2019 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From "political correctness" on U.S. college campuses to political imprisonment of writers in Latin America, censorship remains a pervasive and persistent political force in nations the world over. This collection of essays explores the many faces of censorship, placing them in a theoretical and comparative context. The contributors - who include lawyers, scholars, and an author who has chosen to remain anonymous for fear of government reprisals - show how censorship is used in totalitarian regimes to promote an official ideology and exert party control, in authoritarian regimes to restrict or eliminate civil liberties, and in liberal democracies to limit the freedom of expression. Whether accomplished through torture and execution of dissidents or more subtly through laws, regulations, or tacit threats, there is no doubt that censorship is a potent instrument of power and a political tool that both affects and is affected by the national and international political climate. Patterns of Censorship Arnund the World presents a clear and sobering picture of the ways in which one of our most fundamental human rights is curbed, regulated, and in some cases, abolished
