Augustine argues that everything that exists is good.  His argument is criticized, showing how arguments of the same form could show that completely blackened pans cannot exist and that God is an impossible object.   So, the paper shows how to paradoy an argument by giving parallel reasoning that yields absurd conclusions.

The Bible and Music
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

The Bible and Music by Dr. James F. McGrath provides an introduction and overview of the various ways that music and the Bible have been and continue to be connected. Part 1 focuses on history, presenting what we know about how music in the Ancient Near East sounded, how markings in the Masoretic Text of the Hebrew Bible have been interpreted as musical symbols, how chanting of biblical texts has featured liturgically in synagogues and churches, the impact of the Protestant Reformation, and musical developments in North America as enslaved Africans encountered biblical texts and stories. Part 2 focuses on specific texts in Jewish and Christian scripture and looks at how they have been interpreted through the process of setting them to music, including the soundtracks of cinematic depictions of biblical narrative and allusions to the Bible in popular music. Part 3 focuses on composers from the Middle Ages all the way down to the present day. Throughout the book, musical examples are not merely mentioned but embedded so that reading and listening may be seamlessly combined. The book does not presume prior knowledge of either music or the Bible, and additional links within the text provide definitions and further explanations for those who need or desire them.

Une anthologie de L’Entraide missionnaire

Short Description:
CETTE ANTHOLOGIE PRESENTE 60 TEXTES CLASSES CHRONOLOGIQUEMENT REFLETANT DES PREOCCUPATIONS SOCIALES, POLITIQUES ET SPIRITUELLES EN EVOLUTION. CES TEXTES SONT MAJORITAIREMENT DES CONFERENCES QUI ONT ETE PRONONCEES LORS DU CONGRES ANNUEL DE L’ENTRAIDE MISSIONNAIRE JUSQU'EN 2015, OFFRANT UN ECHANTILLON DES TRESORS QUI SE TROUVENT DANS SES ARCHIVES.

Long Description:
Incorporé en 1958, L’Entraide missionnaire a réalisé un parcours remarquable au service de la solidarité internationale grâce à l’engagement soutenu de ses membres, des personnes responsables de la permanence et un grand nombre de collaboratrices et collaborateurs à travers le monde. En 2015, suite à une lecture collective des signes des temps, les membres de L’Entraide missionnaire ont pris la décision d’entamer un processus de transmission d’héritage avant de fermer l’organisme au printemps 2018.

En offrant un échantillon, certes très limité, des trésors qui se trouvent dans les archives de L’Entraide missionnaire, cette anthologie présente 60 textes classés chronologiquement reflétant des préoccupations sociales, politiques et spirituelles en évolution. L’essentiel de ces textes sont des conférences qui ont été prononcées lors du Congrès annuel de l’Entraide missionnaire, véritable lieu de rassemblement, d’échanges, de réflexions et de critiques sociales.

À la lumière de l’introduction et à travers les lectures sélectionnées, on découvre, même dans les textes écrits sur du vieux papier, des archives qui sont toujours en conversation avec le présent, attentives aux signes des temps. Nous y découvrons des brèches de résistance et d’affirmation de vie et d’humanité solidaire contre les obstacles qui nous confrontent. Nous y trouvons une continuité jusqu’au dernier geste de transmission du legs : un engagement profond et réfléchi qui exige de l’audace, de l’indignation face à l’injustice et de l’espérance pour la transformation du monde.

The Christian Roots of Europe
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

For the most part recorded on site in places such as Subiaco, Montecassino, Assis, San Casciano, Florence and Rome in June of 2013, the documentary we present here was produced and then broadcasted by the State Television of Portugal on December 24, 2013 (RTP2) and January 2, 2014 (RTP1). The Program was produced for RTP1 by the Journalist Fátima Campos Ferreira and the Reporter of Image Carlos Oliveira under the scientific advice of João J. Vila-Chã, professor for Philosophy at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. The documentary was particularly enriched by the contribution of Professor Joseph Weiler, President of the European University Institute in Florence, and was edited by Alexandre Leandro, chief-editor at the RTP. Originally titled (in Portuguese) «O Triunfo do Espírito», the documentary was conceived as (a rather unusual form of) narrative about (the Idea of) Europe and out of the recognition that for the present as for the future of the world a confront remains unavoidable with the cultural and the religious dimension of the Idea of Europe as we know it through the media of our cultural (and philosophical) history. We are grateful to all the Institutions that in places such as Subiaco, Montecassino, Assis, Florence, San Casciano and Rome allowed the team sent by the RTP to Italy to realize the work as intended and so contributed in a decisive way to this particular (and somehow peculiar) narrative about the Idea of Europe.

This book entitled « Two Centuries of Protestantism in Haiti (1816-2016): Implementation, Conversion and Secularization » is the result of the symposium of the bicentenary of Protestantism organized by the Institut universitaire de Formation des Cadres (INUFOCAD) from 15 to 17 August 2016. Under the auspices of the Protestant Federation of Haiti (FPH), this scientific event was a space for citizen reflection allowing to take a scientific look around a jubilee religion established in Haiti since 1816. It was an opportunity for academics and researchers to share with the scientific community and leaders of the Protestant sector critical knowledge about this religious phenomenon in order to contribute to the development of the sociology of religion in Haiti.

A collaboration of student-written essays

Short Description:
Emerging Perspectives on Religion and Environmental Values in America (EPREVA) is a student-written collaboration which explores the numerous, diverse ways in which religious, spiritual, and philosophical beliefs permeate into environmental topics.

Long Description:
Emerging Perspectives on Religious and Environmental Values in America (EPREVA) is a student-written textbook put together by students in Dr. Greg Hitzhusen’s course, Religion and Environmental Values in America (ENR 3470). Originally written as term papers for the course, each chapter contains a different author’s unique exploration of an intersection between religion and environment. From personal reflections on finding spirituality in nature, to musings on art, history, and technology through religious and environmental lenses, this textbook captures a wide array of experiences and viewpoints. We hope you are able to connect with some of these “emerging perspectives” and walk away with a new appreciation for how religious and environmental values interact with the ever-changing landscape of our world today.

Almost as soon as the Arab armies of Islam conquered new lands, they began erecting mosques and palaces and commissioning other works of art as expressions of their faith and culture. Many aspects of religious practice in Islam also emerged and were codified. The religious practice of Islam, which literally means "to submit to God", is based on tenets that are known as the Five Pillars, arkan, to which all members of the Islamic community, Umma, should adhere.

One of the five pillars of Islam central to Muslim belief, Hajj is the pilgrimage to Mecca that every Muslim must make at least once in their lifetime if they are able; it is the most spiritual event that a Muslim experiences, observing rituals in the most sacred places in the Islamic world. Mecca is the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad. The sanctuary there with the Ka‘ba is the holiest site in Islam. As such, it is a deeply spiritual destination for Muslims all over the world; it is the heart of Islam.

A Hindu temple can be a simple structure by the side of the road or a large complex including many buildings. Temples serve as dwelling places for deities, surrounded by markets selling offerings and flowers. The inner sanctuaries are small and intended for a few worshippers at a time. Above the sanctuaries are central towers, shaped like the mountain home of the gods and brightly painted.

Short Description:
A new, 21st century verse translation of Homer's epic work, translated by Michael Heumann.

Long Description:
There is no greater introduction to world literature than Homer’s Iliad. The great epic poem tells the story of the Bronze Age war between the Achaeans (Greeks) and Trojans, the great warriors who did the fighting, the woman they were fighting for (and fighting over), and the gods who egged them on.

This is a new, 21st century verse translation by Michael Heumann. It seeks to retain the spirit and language of Homer’s original Greek while making it readable and enjoyable for a modern audience.

Michael Heumann is a Professor of English at Imperial Valley College in California. He holds a PhD in English from the University of California, Riverside. This is his first translation.

Intermediate Biblical Greek Reader: Galatians and Related Texts
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

After completing basic biblical Greek, students are often eager to continue to learn and strengthen their skills of translation and interpretation. This intermediate graded reader is designed to meet those needs. The reader is “intermediate” in the sense that it presumes the user will have already learned the basics of Greek grammar and syntax and has memorized Greek vocabulary words that appear frequently in the New Testament. The reader is “graded” in the sense that it moves from simpler translation work (Galatians) towards more advanced readings from the book of James, the Septuagint, and from one of the Church Fathers. In each reading lesson, the Greek text is given, followed by supplemental notes that offer help with vocabulary, challenging word forms, and syntax. Discussion questions are also included to foster group conversation and engagement. There are many good Greek readers in existence, but this reader differs from most others in a few important ways. Most readers offer text selections from different parts of the Bible, but in this reader the user works through one entire book (Galatians). All subsequent lessons, then, build off of this interaction with Galatians through short readings that are in some way related to Galatians. The Septuagint passages in the reader offer some broader context for texts that Paul quotes explicitly from the Septuagint. The Patristic reading from John Chrysystom comes from one of his homilies on Galatians. This approach to a Greek reader allows for both variety and coherence in the learning process.

This assignment is designed as a mini-research project with the purpose of having students engage with marginalized actors in history. The purpose is to help students find themselves in the archives by focusing on self-representation that is important to their own socio-economic and ethnic groups. By providing historical research in the form of primary and secondary documents on figures that have been historically "left out" of the historical narrative, the students will help fill the gaps in the archive, be active in the creation of new curriculum, and gain a better understanding of marginalization and the power of historical memory in the process.

Mind the Gap: Navigating Transitions in Life with Mindfulness

Rating
0.0 stars

Mind the Gap encourages you to be mindful of that gap that takes place in various transitions in life: when you go away to college, travel to a foreign country, move to a new city, or start a new job. Until you start to feel at home in your new environment, you must negotiate feelings of discomfort. Mindfulness draws attention to your experience of transition, enabling you to cultivate an embodied presence, receptivity, and awareness of whatever arises in yourself and your surroundings, without judging or rejecting your experience. All too often, when we feel uncomfortable or unsettled, we immediately want to alleviate our feelings of discomfort by seeking comfort or distraction. When we do this, we rob ourselves of the opportunity to grow and develop in new ways.

An Open Access Anthology of Greek and Roman Myth

Short Description:
Mythoi Koinoi: An Online, Open-Access Anthology of Greek and Roman Myth provides undergraduate university students with free, easy access to primary source texts and images for Greek and Roman mythology. Mythoi Koinoi means "Mythology for the People" in Ancient Greek, and it is intended to give everyone who engages with it access to the writings and artistic creations of the ancient Greeks and Romans.

Long Description:
Mythoi Koinoi: An Online, Open-Access Anthology of Greek and Roman Myth began with the observation that many of the texts that we study in our Greek and Roman mythology classes have translations that are available online, either in the public domain or under open access copyright, though many of them are archaic, unreadable, and therefore inaccessible to modern students. Accessibility, then, has been the guiding principle for the book. We set out to update these open access translations, providing clear introductions that situate each text according to time, place, and genre, and organizing them into thematic chapters. We have adapted all translations that are more than forty years old for readability, while maintaining the integrity of the text and its faithfulness to the original languages.

Additionally, while there are thousands of primary source images related to Ancient Greek and Roman mythology available online, they are generally uncontextualized and scattered across multiple platforms, including museum databases, open access media collections, and popular webpages. We collected and organized these images, situating them within their respective chapters and providing necessary context for identification and interpretation.

The anthology contains more than 80 primary source texts from 35 authors, along with hyperlinks to online translations of many more. It has more than 600 high-resolution images of artwork from ancient Greece and Rome. In crafting the book, we have followed best practices for Universal Design for Learning. All images come with captions, descriptions and alternate text, for those that are unable to view them. There are over 500 glossary entries that are accessible either through links within each of the primary texts, or through the glossary section at the back of the book.

The book contains 43 chapters, organized into 7 parts, starting from the myths of creation and destruction, and going through the aftermath of the Trojan War. The sixth chapter focuses specifically on mythology unique to Ancient Rome, and the seventh chapter focuses on the mythology and archaeology of cities and spaces. We have also included mythology from Mesopotamia and the Levant in two chapters, “Aphrodite” and “Flood Myths.” We hope that these chapters will give instructors and students the opportunity to explore some of the ways in which ancient Greek and Roman myth is connected to earlier mythology from ancient West Asia.

Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

Selon le libertarisme, la justice consiste à garantir l'exercice de la liberté individuelle par un système cohérent de droits de propriété. Si la variante "de droite", la plus influente politiquement, permet de justifier une version radicale de capitalisme de laissez-faire, nous verrons également qu'il existe un libertarisme de gauche, plus influent dans le débat académique, qui soutient des conclusions égalitaristes en se fondant sur l'idée d'un droit égal de chaque être humain aux ressources de la Terre.
Nous discuterons principalement de la tentative la plus aboutie d'articuler une théorie éthique libertarienne par l'auteur étatsunien Robert Nozick, dans son livre Anarchy, State & Utopia. Nous verrons en quoi les libertariens présente leur théorie comme une réponse à la fois à l'utilitarisme et au libéral-égalitarisme, qui ne respecteraient pas suffisamment la dignité fondamentale de chaque être humain.
Nous finirons par discuter l'attractivité du libertarisme comme théorie de la justice, en se posant en particulier la question de savoir si la liberté de choix défendue par les libertariens correspond à nos intuitions sur ce que devrait être une société libre.

Même si Marx était très critique envers l'idée même de justice, on peut interpréter le projet éthique implicite du marxisme comme visant l'abolition de deux injustices inhérentes au capitalisme : l'exploitation et l'aliénation. En nous inspirant de l'école du Marxisme analytique (G.A. Cohen, Jon Elster, John Roemer) nous discuterons ces deux idées et verrons en quoi elles peuvent continuer de guider nos réflexions contemporaines sur la justice. Nous expliquerons d'abord la raison des réticences de Marx et Engels envers la philosophie normative par leur critiques des socialistes "utopiques" (comme Charles Fourier), et un bref exposé du projet marxisme d'élaborer un socialisme scientifique (matérialisme dialectique et matérialisme historique). Nous discuterons enfin ce que pourrait être les principes de justice d'une théorie éthique Marxiste centrée sur l'abolition de l'exploitation et de l'aliénation, qui nous amènera à clarifier la différence entre le stade du "socialisme" et du "communisme". Nous discuterons l'actualité de la critique de l'aliénation en lien avec la critique des "bullshit jobs" avancée par le sociologue David Graeber.

La théorie de la justice de John Rawls, qui a fondé la grande famille du "libéral-égalitarisme", est certainement une des plus influentes théories éthiques aujourd'hui. Une des ambitions radicales de cette théorie est de compenser non seulement l'influence de l'origine sociale, mais également celle de la répartition naturelle des talents. Nous présenterons deux arguments en faveur des principes de justice : premièrement, l'expérience de pensée bien connue dite du "voile d'ignorance", et deuxièmement un argument plus méconnu sur le caractère arbitraire de la "loterie naturelle". Nous présenterons les trois principes de justice de Rawls (égale liberté, égalité équitable des chances, et principe de différence), et nous lèverons certains malentendus, en voyant notamment en quoi l'égalitarisme du Maxi-min (principe de différence) se distingue d'une hypothèse empirique sur l'efficacité des inégalités (théorie du ruissellement).

As the openning chapter of the Bible, Genesis 1 is a well known creation myth.  Knowing what is actually in the myth is the first step towards identifying what is specifically important in the world it creates.

Short Description:
This book argues that the best way to understand the stories of the Old and New Testaments is to consider them as human stories with sophisticated narrative techniques at play. God is a character in these stories from the beginning, and considering god as a character in a narrative proves fruitful in responding to the human voices of these stories.

Long Description:
This book argues that the best way to understand the stories of the Old and New Testaments is to consider them as human stories with sophisticated narrative techniques at play. God is a character in these stories from the beginning, and considering god as a character in a narrative proves fruitful in responding to the human voices of these stories.

Although many readers go to the Bible to find the revealed word of Yahweh or of the Christian God, what they find there is always an interpretation of the text through the filters of a religious dogma which exists prior to the reading of the text. Reading the Bible suggests another way of reading the texts, a way of reading which concentrates not on “what does it mean?” but on “what does it say?” and “what do I see there?” The result is a fresh approach to the reading of these biblical texts, an approach which celebrates human storytelling while investigating myth, language, and the act of reading a text.

A Biblical Understanding of Transgenderism

Short Description:
Are Christians prepared to answer the challenges that accompany transgender ideology? Can we clearly defend our beliefs? Do we understand what the transgender community believes? Transitioning introduces the reader to transgender ideology while providing a Biblical framework for evaluating it. Clear and concise, Transitioning is a must-read primer on the subject of transgenderism for every Christian.

Long Description:
Countries are aggressively incorporating transgenderism into their country’s official ideology. We find ourselves on the cusp of being legally required to accept an individual’s personal feelings over objective truth and scientific data. Already, failure to embrace such personal feelings can lead to social ostracism, loss of employment, and discrimination lawsuits. Corporations and political leaders around the world seem determined to impose a celebration of transgenderism upon the people regardless of their preferences. However, with this embrace of transgender ideology comes a host of unsettling questions. The logic undergirding transgender ideology is incompatible with the logic undergirding many societal laws and protections. A crisis of ideology is brewing.

Are we as Christians prepared to answer the challenges that accompany transgender ideology? Can we clearly defend our beliefs? Do we understand what the transgender community believes? Transitioning introduces the reader to transgender ideology while providing a Biblical framework for evaluating it. Clear and concise, Transitioning is a must-read primer on the subject of transgenderism for every Christian.
