Описание: First published in Paris in 1511, "The Praise of Folly" has enjoyed enormous and highly controversial success from the author's lifetime down to our own day.
"The Folly" has no rival, except perhaps Thomas More's "Utopia", as the most intense and lively presentation of the literary, social and theological aims and methods of Norther
Humanism. Clarence H.
Miller's translation of "The Praise of Folly", based on the definitive Latin text, seeks to echo Erasmus' own lively style while retaining the nuances of
the original text. In his introduction, Miller places the work in the context of Erasmus as humanist and theologian. In the afterword, William H.
Gass playfully considers the
meaning, or meanings, of folly and offers fresh insights into one of the great books of Western literature.

Описание: Using a totally original approach, this pioneering book adds depth to the work of around thirty international artists who participated in the sculpture exhibition
Sonsbeek 2008: Grandeur. Their work is shown in a broad cultural and artistic context using over 500 illustrations. The book is, in short, a running pictorial narrative about the drive, the
dream and the strife inextricably bound to the struggle for human grandeur.
Texts by Anne Tilroe, artistic director of Sonsbeek 2008, Bas Heijne and Wouter Hillaert place this
theme at the heart of our time.

Описание: This wide-ranging book is the first comprehensive history of the development of realist ideas in international relations throughout the last five hundred years. Jonathan Haslam focuses on the emergence and relevance of realist (or statist) thought, showing how it has shaped political thinking and international events since Machiavelli's time. Haslam draws on an array of original texts in various European languages to illustrate the views of rulers and thinkers, to reveal how wars and other crises affected the thinking of those who experienced them, and to locate realist thinking squarely within the history of political and economic thought. The author explores four themes relating to modern era international relations: reasons of state, the balance of power, the balance of trade, and geopolitics. He contrasts realist ideas with universalist alternatives, both religious and secular, which were based on a more optimistic view of the nature of man or the nature of society. Realist thought never attained consistent predominance, Haslam demonstrates, and the struggle with universalist thought has remained an unresolved tension that can be traced throughout the evolution of international relations theory in the twentieth century.
