Plato's Republic( Visual )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This timeless program scrutinizes The Republic, a work that has intrigued and infuriated for thousands of years. Was Plato's plan for an ideal city, a place where philosophers are rulers and wisdom is the cornerstone of society, a blueprint, a satire, or a bit of both? Columbia University's Bonnie Kent; Princeton University's Alexander Nehamas; Martha Nussbaum, of The University of Chicago; Thomas Pangle, of the University of Toronto; poet Joseph Brodsky; novelist Joyce Carol Oates; William Bennett, former U.S. Secretary of Education; and radio personality Michael Savage consider the worth of a system that promotes the common good through state control that, by necessity, must involve censorship and eugenics"--Container

(Producer) This program goes inside high-tech factories to see how products ranging from toys and makeup to bulldozers and helicopters are made. Marcus Crotts of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, James Womack of the Lean Manufacturing Institute, and professors James Solberg and Herb Moskowitz of Purdue University share their insights into the workings of the value stream -- a process of going from raw materials to finished products that today includes on-demand fabrication, advanced robotics, and zero-defect quality control standards
Galileo's "Dialogue."( Visual )

4 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is said that the apple fell on Newton's head, but it was Galileo who planted the tree. This program examines, The Dialogue--arguably the most controversial book of its time--and the tumultuous events revolving around Galileo's visionary scientific achievements. The insights of Harvard University's Owen Gingerich, emeritus professor of the history of science; George Coyne, director of the Vatican Observatory; and others, plus dramatizations of scenes from the book and Galileo's trial, capture the intellectual fervor of the Scientific Revolution and the Church's struggle to discourage acceptance of Copernican cosmology
