Anarchism is a philosophical and political creed which many have subscribed to and for which many have been persecuted by other ideologies. There have been anarchist-inspired revolutions but anarchism's power tends to be in the lone protestor. This book looks at the history of anarchism
Riding the wind : a new philosophy for a new era by Peter H Marshall( )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 1,593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?In seeking answers to these fundamental questions, Peter Marshall develops a dynamic and organic philosophy for the third millennium which he calls liberation ecology. Deep, social and libertarian, it seeks to free nature, society and individuals from their existing burdens so that they can realize together their full potential. Riding the Wind presents a fresh and inspired vision which combines ancient wisdom and modern insights, reason and intuition, science and myth. It is an exciting and uplifting work on how to live well and in
Nature's web : rethinking our place on earth by Peter H Marshall( Book )

22 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This powerful book provides the first comprehensive overview of the intellectual roots of the worldwide environmental movement - from ancient religions and philosophies to modern science and ethics - and synthesizes them into a new philosophy of nature in which to ground our moral values and social action. It traces the origins and evolution of the dominant worldview that has built our industrial, technocratic, man-centered civilization, and brought us to the current ecological crisis." "At the same time, it uncovers an alternative cultural tradition in the world's different religions and philosophies and describes how these ideas are now surfacing and coalescing to form an ecological sensibility and a new vision of nature which recognizes the inter-relatedness of all living things." "Finally, this book integrates these varied traditions with modern physics and the science of ecology into a larger philosophical whole that provides the environmental movement with a comprehensive vision of an organic and sustainable society in harmony with nature." "As ecological disasters continue to threaten our planet, becoming worse with every passing moment of indifference, it has become clear that we must take action. We must change our relationship with nature, and return to the days when our lives were intimately connected to and dependent upon the natural world. Nature's Web lays the foundations for that change by explaining where our complex ideas about nature come from, why they are wrong, and what we can do to change them."--Jacket
William Godwin by Peter H Marshall( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Basing his work on extensive published and unpublished materials, Peter Marshall has written a comprehensive study of this flamboyant and fascinating figure. The picture of Godwin that emerges is one of a complex man and a subtle and revolutionary thinker. In the final analysis, Godwin stands forth not only as a rare example of a man who excelled in both philosophy and literature but as one of the great humanists in the Western tradition."--

The magic circle of Rudolf II : alchemy and astrology in Renaissance Prague by Peter H Marshall( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rudolf II-Habsburg heir, Holy Roman Emperor, king of Hungary, Germany, and the Romans-is one of history's great characters, and yet he remains largely an unknown figure. His reign (1576-1612) roughly mirrored that of Queen Elizabeth I of England, and while her famous court is widely recognized as a sixteenth century Who's Who, Rudolf 's collection of mathematicians, alchemists, artists, philosophers and astronomers-among them the greatest and most subversive minds of the time-was no less prestigious and perhaps even more influential. Driven to understand the deepest secrets of nature and the riddle of existence, Rudolf invited to his court an endless stream of genius-Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, German mathematician Johannes Kepler, English magus John Dee, Francis Bacon, and mannerist painter Giuseppe Archimboldo among many others. Prague became the artistic and scientific center of the known world-an island of intellectual tolerance between Catholicism, Protestantism, and Islam. Combining the wonders and architectural beauty of sixteenth century Prague with the larger than-life characters of Rudolf 's court, Peter Marshall provides an exciting new perspective on the pivotal moment of transition between medieval and modern, when the foundation was laid for the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment."--Publisher's website
Enmity in Corinth : social conventions in Paul's relations with the Corinthians by Peter H Marshall( Book )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and German and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The philosopher's stone : a quest for the secrets of alchemy by Peter H Marshall( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alchemy, the art and science of transformation, is a very ancient discipline and yet highly relevant today. It offers a fiery crucible of wisdom with a crucial message for our time. The alchemists, who combined science and spirituality, experiment and vision, were not just naive eccentrics of the past but may well prove to be the prophets of the future. Closely allied to magic and astrology, alchemy is one ofthe world's greatest mysteries and best kept secrets." "Newton, Jung, Emperor Rudolf II, Nicolas Flamel, St. Thomas Aquinas and Zosimus all spent much of their lives searching for the Philosopher's Stone, the supreme goal of alchemy. With its magical and enigmatic power, it can transform base metal into gold, decipher the riddle of existence and unlock the secrets of eternal life." "After years of study and research, Peter Marshall set off on a worldwide quest to discover the Philosopher's Stone and to unearth the secrets of alchemy in the lands where it was traditionally practised. The result is a tour de force of historical, scientific and philosophical detective work as well as a thrilling physical and spiritual adventure."--Jacket

The theatre of the world : alchemy, astrology and magic in Renaissance Prague by Peter H Marshall( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Theatre of the World is the enchanting story of Rudolf II, an emperor more interested in the great minds of his times than in the exercise of his immense power. Rarely leaving Prague Castle, he gathered around him a galaxy of famous figures: among them the painter Arcimboldo, the astronomer Tycho Brahe, and mathematician Johannes Kepler, the philosopher Giordano Bruno and the magus John Dee." "Entranced, like Hamlet, with the new Renaissance learning, Rudolf found it nearly impossible to make decisions. Like Faust, he was prepared to risk all in the pursuit of magical knowledge and the Philosopher's Stone which would turn base metals into gold and prolong life indefinitely. But he also faced the threats of religious discord and the Ottoman Empire, along with a deepening melancholy and an ambitious younger brother. As a result he lost his empire and nearly his sanity but enabled Prague to enjoy a golden age of peace and creativity before Europe was engulfed in the Thirty Years' War."--BOOK JACKET
