The psychology of the child by Jean Piaget( Book )

15 editions published between 1969 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume we have tried to present, as briefly and as clearly as possible, a synthesis, or summing up, of our work in child psychology. A book such as this seemed to us particularly desirable since our published studies have been spread out over a number of volumes, some of them quite lengthy and some of them fairly difficult to read. This little book, of course, is not meant to be a substitute for reading the other volumes. But it represents, we believe, a useful introduction to the questions we have studied and will enable the reader to gain an adequate understanding of what we have learned in our investigation."--Jean Piaget (March 1969)
The hour of our death by Philippe Ariès( Book )

4 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in English and held by 1,721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This remarkable book -- the fruit of almost two decades of study -- traces in compelling fashion the changes in Western attitudes toward death and dying from the earliest Christian times to the present day. A truly landmark study, The Hour of Our Death reveals a pattern of gradually developing evolutionary stages in our perceptions of life in relation to death, each stage representing a virtual redefinition of human nature. -- Provided by publisher
Antonin Artaud, selected writings by Antonin Artaud( Book )

6 editions published between 1976 and 1988 in English and held by 983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Antonin Artaud is 'one of the great, daring mapmakers of consciousness in extremis, ' writes Susan Sontag. 'His work and presence reside on the boundary between being and non-being, art and non-art, reasoning and screaming. He proposes a new mode of thinking and of art--even as he simultaneously proclaims and demonstrates their impossibility.' The writings of Antonin Artaud (1896-1948) include verse; prose poems; essays on cinema, art, and literature; diatribes and polemics on the theater; six film scenarios; a historical novel; several plays; and a large number of letters. From this vast corpus, collected in the nine-volume Gallimard edition, Susan Sontag has drawn a selection that encompasses this singular writer, a writer who intended to produce a revolution in thought and whose work is indeed the inspiration for many radical thinkers and artists of the new generation. The recent manifestations of his Theater of Cruelty are only one sign of Artaud's growing influence on the anarchistically-minded and the young. 'Words are a morass explained, not by existence, but by suffering.' Impelled by his suffering, Artaud wrote with genius, power, authority, and accuracy, and the explication of his mental state became his dominant, inexhaustible subject. As he put it, 'I am the man who has best charted his inmost self.' The charts he left--stressing individual creation, the extension of consciousness, the intuitive--will inevitably be consulted by revolutionaries of the future. The translation is by Helen Weaver, who also rendered Artaud's The Peyote Dance. The book concludes with a 66-page section of notes by Susan Sontag and Don Eric Levine."--Jacket

Main currents in sociological thought by Raymond Aron( )

2 editions published between 1968 and 2019 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first part of Raymond Aron's landmark two-volume study of the sociological tradition--arguably the definitive work of its kind. More than a work of reconstruction, Aron's study is, at its deepest level, an engagement with the very question of modernity: how did the intellectual currents which emerged in the eighteenth century shape the modern political and philosophical order? With scrupulous fairness, Aron examines the thoughts and arguments of the major social thinkers to discern how they answered this question. Volume One explores three traditions: the French liberal school of political sociology, represented by Montesquieu and Tocqueville; the Comtean tradition, anticipating Durkheim in its elevation of social unity and consensus; and the Marxists, who posited the struggle between classes and placed their faith in historical necessity. In his customary clear and penetrating prose, Aron argues that each of these schools offers its own theory of the diversity of societies and that "each is inspired both by moral convictions and by scientific hypotheses." This Routledge Classics edition includes an introduction by Daniel J. Mahoney and Brian C. Anderson
Letters to two friends, 1926-1952 by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin( Book )

7 editions published between 1968 and 1972 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main currents in sociological thought by Raymond Aron( Book )

21 editions published between 1967 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second of Raymond Aron's classic two-volume survey of the sociological tradition - arguably the definitive work of its kind. Aron explores the work of three figures who profoundly shaped sociology as it entered the twentieth century: Émile Durkheim, who continued Auguste Comte's quest for a science of society and a scientific validation of morality; Vilfredo Pareto, the Italian "neo-Machiavellian" who emphasized the oligarchic or elitist character of all societies; and the German sociologist Max Weber, who reflected critically on the prospects for human freedom in an age marked by bureaucratization and rationalization. Aron presents rich portraits of these three thinkers, drawing out the enduring insights that remain in their work. At the same time he reflects critically on Durkheim's project for a science of society, Pareto's critique of humanitarianism, and Weber's tragic pessimism. Above all the book is remarkable for demonstrating Aron's lifelong indebtedness to and divergence from the thought of Max Weber, the sociologist par excellence, in Aron's view. This Routledge Classics edition includes an introduction by Daniel J. Mahoney and Brian C. Anderson

Justine, or : the misfortunes of virtue by Sade( )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel tells the story of the beautiful and devout Justine, whose steadfast faith and naive trust destine her from the outset for sexual exploitation and martyrdom. The unending catalog of disasters that befall her, during which she is subject to any number of perverse practices, illustrate the author's belief in the primacy of nature over civilization. Virtue is no match for vice, and as criminality and violence triumph, Justine is doomed to suffer
Treblinka by Jean-François Steiner( Book )

Of these, forty survived to bear witness to man's courage in the face of the greatest evil human history has produced."
