A pioneer in logical analysis, Russell was a resolute empiricist who tackled many puzzles - how our minds work, how we experience the world, and what the true nature of meaning is.

Ethics for beginners by Dave Robinson ( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ethics has become a burning issue in moral philosophical thought, raising the specter of responsibility at a time when responsibility seems entirely replaced by uncertainty and relativism." "In a climate of instant information, free markets and possible ecological disaster, how do we define "rights", self-interest and civic duties? What are the acceptable limits of scientific investigation, genetic engineering, the rights and wrongs of animal rights, euthanasia and civil disobedience?" "What is the place of individual choice and consequence in a post-Holocaust world of continuing genocidal ethnic cleansing? Is "identity" now a last-ditch cultural defense of ethnic nationalisms and competing fundamentalisms?" "Introducing Ethics confronts these dilemmas. It traces in words and images the arguments of the great moral thinkers, including Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Hobbes and Kant, and brings the reader up to date with postmodern critics."--Jacket

Lombardi's left side by Herb Adderley ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses or the problems of modern society.?Vince Lombardi. Winning was not the only thing. Something more important than winning football games occurred during the Lombardi Dynasty. Vince Lombardi?s Green Bay Packers ushered the National Football League to the forefront of American sports popularity during a racially explosive time, proving that teamwork transcended the color barrier. Along the way to greatness, Lombardi?s team demonstrated to the NFL, to America, what football looked like in the modern era: blacks and whites working together to win. And win they did. The Green Bay Packers can tell one of the greatest sports stories our nation has ever seen: five World Championships, including three in a row. No team has been able to win three straight World titles since the great Packers squads. With 40 years of reflection, how Lombardi?s Dynasty occurred is much more important than we knew back then. They won championships because of the character of the players. The task was daunting and the results historical. With a collection of competent people, Lombardi pushed, pulled, tugged and led Green Bay?-and the NFL?into the modern era. Very little has been written about the defensive side of the ball and because of the attrition of the Packer defensive players from the era, there is very little chance much wil be published. Lombardi?s Left Side is the first?and most likely the last?book about the great Green Bay Packers defenses of the Lombardi Era as told by two of Lombardi?s greatest defensive players: Herb Adderley and Dave Robinson. These two players were critical elements in winning championsips and moving our country forward in a racially explosive time. The two men, who were athletic, bright, courageous, disciplined, hungry, confident, proud, spiritual, descent and black, blazed a trail. They played on the left side of Green Bay?s great defenses of the Lombardi Era. For the first time, Adderley and Robinson share what it was like to be a professional football player in the 1960s through personal stories of Lombardi and his management of the entire Green Bay Packer organization. Articulate and intelligent, Adderley and Robinson cover it all: on the field and off. These two great athletes shut down the left side of the football field and opened up the right side of our minds
