Drawing on insights from Nicholas Perkins, a specialist on medieval English literature and manuscripts at the University of Cambridge; Arthurian expert Kevin J. Harty, of La Salle University; and Helen Cooper, authority on medieval literature at the University of Oxford, this program explicates this complex alliterative poem, examines its treatment of familiar Arthurian themes, and illustrates why it is considered one of the finest romances of the Middle Ages

"Gustav Klimt was an unlikely artistic rebel, but in early 20th century Vienna, the work of this mild-mannered painter created a scandal in his home city. Having enjoyed a conventionally successful early career, Klimt's art changed radically in his mid-thirties. He became leader of the Vienna Secession, a group of avant-garde artists who would change the conservative Viennese art scene forever. Klimt's own work became increasingly erotic in nature. His deeply sensual portraits of Viennese women still make a powerful impression upon the modern viewer"--

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part 2 of the Eastern philosophy series turns to south Asian schools of thought. This program covers Hinduism and Buddhism. Hinduism, one of the oldest religions, emerged about fifteen hundred years before Christ. Looks at the fundamental beliefs at the heart of Hinduism, the caste system, and its teachings on lifestyle and human destiny. The roots of Buddhism are in the 5th century A.D. Its journey to the 21st century has been far from smooth, but despite numerous attempts to wipe it out, it flourishes today as a global phenomenon. Buddhism is perhaps more accurately described as a spiritual school and way of life than religion, as it has no deities. Discusses karma and the cycles of death and re-birth, the other teachings of the Buddha

The final part of the Western philosophy series. This program covers the Industrial Revolution and Pragmatism. The Industrial Revolution had a deep impact on the direction and questions posed by western philosophy. Technological advancements prompted questions about the role of religion and for the first time, attempts were made to explain the human evolution of western civilization and history. Thinkers including Arthur Schopenhauer, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Jean-Paul Sartre began to question the human condition. Philosophy tried to reconcile the mechanistic laws of the universe with human freedom of will and action in a world that was beginning to be perceived as godless. Philosophical debate shifted from whether the eternal world exists, but rather, to how we interpret it. The language we use in everyday life became a focus for the Pragmatists and Ludwig Wittgenstein

Part 2 of the Western philosophy series. This program covers the Rationalists and British empiricists. The discoveries of Copernicus and Galileo turned science completely upside down, forcing people to examine their place in the world and God's place in science and mathematics. Religious volatility in Europe also prompted fierce theological debate amongst scholars over the true nature of God's existence. In Europe, the Rationalist movement was born. The sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries saw the emergence of continental mathematical and philosophical giants including Rene Descartes, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Immanuel Kant, and Bendict de Spinoza. Meanwhile in Britain, a philosophical renaissance was taking place. Known as the British empiricists, they included John Locke, David Hume, and Bishop George Berkeley. Discusses why the philosophical schism took place and what each school had to say about the limits of human reason and to what extent we can truly comprehend the world
Western philosophy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first part of the Western philosophy series. This program covers the Greek and Roman philosophers. Beginning in Greece and Asia Minor, the birthplace of Western philosophy and the Pre-Socratics (Heraclitus of Ephesus, Parmenides of Elea, Zeno of Elea, Pythagoras of Croton, Anaxagoras of Clazomenae, Empedocles of Acragas). The program examines the nature of philosophy itself and what prompted the pioneers of antiquity to ask fundamental questions about human nature and our world. The chronological journey charts the development of philosophical thought, exploring its relationship with early mathematics and the natural and physical sciences. Discusses why the observations and theories of Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle remain valid in the twenty-first century.

Augustine of Hippo, Thomas Aquinas, and John Duns Scotus developed their own fusion of Christianity and classical philosophy.

Campaign in the Balkans( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1943 the Romanians--no doubt prompted by merciless Allied bombing--changed sides. Thereafter, events moved swiftly: the Russians soon captured the vital Ploesti oil fields, a huge loss to the German war effort, and within days the Soviets captured Bucharest. A nervous Bulgaria sued for peace with the Allies, but the Russians pushed on into Sofia. Despite German delaying tactics, Hungary fell next. In Yugoslavia the Germans held grimly on to Belgrade until October. The bloody mop-up fighting was left to the Soviets and lasted until the end of the war. This episode is from the landmark television series Battlefield. Featuring fascinating archive footage from all over the world, the program includes a review of the political and military situation before the battle, portraits of leaders and commanders, an explanation of weapons and tactics, and the story of the battle itself. Vivid graphics place the battle into the context of the war as a whole. - Publisher

The Battle of Okinawa, Operation Iceberg, was on the Ryukyu Islands of Okinawa, from March through June 1945. The 82-day battle was the largest amphibious assault in the Pacific theater, the last pitched battle of the war, and a battle with one of the highest number of casualties of any WWII engagement. The main objective of the operation was to seize a large island only 340 miles away from mainland Japan, to serve as a springboard for the planned invasion of the islands. The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki caused Japan to surrender just weeks after the end of the fighting at Okinawa and the invasion never took place
